Medicine :: Chiropractic for curing different diseases by aligning displaced spines.

The term Chiropractic is derived from the Greek words cheir and praxis meaning hand and action respectively. Thus Chiropractic means done by hand type of health care that work on the principle of body structure, mainly that of the spine and its functions. Chiropractic is the alternative healthcare profession focusing on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of the mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system and associated effects on nervous system and overall health of man. Chiropractic is a system of remedy in which ailment is regard as the result of anomalous function of nervous system.

The Chiropractic method of dealing typically entails manipulation of spinal column and additional body structures. In other words the chiropractic is the medical practice that is based on the on the fact that several diseases are resulted from the disruption of nerve functions whose principal source is the displacement of vertebral spine. The treatment of such diseases in chiropractic involves proper regulation of the displaced vertebrae.

Chiropractic was introduced for the first time by Daniel David Palmer of Toronto, Canada and sifted to United States of America in the year 1895 and his principle of chiropractic was that all health troubles can be treated or prevented by adjusting the spine and other joints which he considered under "subluxations". This chiropractic medicine system further expanded and as a result of the extensive studies and works of biomedical professionals.

Chiropractics believed that subluxations which is the misalignment of spine and interfered with cranial nerve signals are the sources of different heath problems. Chiropractic science believes that the human body has self healing abilities; and by making proper chiropractic adjustements to the spine helps in curing various problems like backache, neck ache, headaches, etc. Restoration of proper alignment of the spine enhances the restoration of the nerve signals and promotes the cure of the associated diseases. The general principle of all chiropractic practices is the proper and exact alignment of the spine. Earlier it was not accepted by the medical practitioners due to the lack of efficient scientific evidences of his principle. Chiropractic is a health care discipline that focuses on the relationship between the body's structure, primarily the spine and its functioning.

The chiropractic is useful in taking care of sports injuries or low back troubles and this practice may be associated with the management of extremities, nutrition, physiotherapy, or exercises to augment spinal strength or progress in overall health. Chiropractic treatment for any sort of injury or problem involves a non-invasive and drug-free therapy and hence it does not have any side-effects and is not usually painful.

Chiropractic doctors are trained as experts in the spine and know how to manually return motion to constrained spinal joints. Chiropractic may also be associated with other alternative and complementary methods under holistic approach of treatment. Chiropractic doctors are neither trained nor licensed to recommend drugs or execute surgery. But these chiropractic experts are skilled to identify signs and symptoms of diabetes, cancer, and many other infectious diseases and pass on the patients to medicinal physicians for specific or simultaneous care. However there is verification on the evidence of effective treatment of tension headaches, severe low back pain by chiropractics.

As auto collapse ripples, small suppliers fight for survival

DETROIT ( -- As Detroit's Big Three automakers fight for survival, thousands of small suppliers are caught in their economic wake, struggling to adapt to a shrinking industry.

TNT EDM, a tooling company with 35 employees in Plymouth, Mich., has seen its automotive business drop more than 50% since 2004. Founded in 1978, TNT traditionally served customers such as Ford (F, Fortune 500), Metaldyne and FormTech. To stave off the losses as sales to its auto customers declined, the company has begun doing work for different industries. Six years ago, it started targeting the aerospace industry, and in the last two years, TNT has aggressively pursed the medical and energy market

Buyers save on surplus goods - Used medical equipment finds new life (1)

Used medical equipment finds new life

Centurion President Erik Tivin

Centurion Service Group

Headquarters: Melrose Park, Ill.

Launched: 2001

Sales: $6 million in 2007, $10 million in 2008

Erik Tivin describes himself as the Fred Sanford of surplus medical equipment, surrounded by all the cast-offs he can scrounge. Each month, he buys more than 5,000 pieces of used equipment from hospitals and resells the inventory through live, online auctions to healthcare facilities worldwide.

"Hospitals aren't purchasing lots of capital equipment because credit is tight now, so they're hanging on to what they have," says Tivin, Centurion's president. "But what we've lost in surplus equipment, we've made up in selling manufacturer overstock and equipment from hospital closures."

Tivin sources new inventory by tracking the vulnerable: His company is currently keeping tabs on more than 100 hospitals in financial distress. He also has repeat customers - about 30% of Centurion's clients are hospitals that need cutting-edge technology for teaching or diagnostic purposes that continually offer their used equipment for sale.

Seventy percent of Centurion's buyers are outside the United States, in countries where demand for secondhand medical equipment remains high. The company picks up equipment from hospitals, stores it in warehouses in Melrose Park, Ill.; Las Vegas; and Berlin, Germany, and sells everything on consignment.

"Our margins are the same, but we're gaining market share," Tivin says. "We're spending $4,000 a month for ad-word searches on the Internet and get thousands Medical Equipment Suppliers of hits a day on our Web site. We just signed a contract with Vivantes, one of Germany's largest hospital chains, and anticipate 30% growth in 2009. A liquidator always gets busy in a down economy."
