October 2017 Named Chiropractic Health Month in Wisconsin

In recognition of the Wisconsin Chiropractic Association's efforts with the Governor's Office to help promote non-invasive, drug-free approaches to healthcare and pain management, October 2017 has been named Chiropractic Health Month in the state of Wisconsin.

In light of the rise of the prescription opioid abuse crisis, chiropractic has been recognized at the state level as a major part of the approach to curb what is quickly becoming one of the most intense public health issues of our generation.

The Brouillette Back and Neck Clinic is proud and appreciative of the efforts of the Wisconsin Chiropractic Association and the Governor's Office to combat dangerous opioids head-on by promoting the safe, effective, and holistic alternative that is chiropractic care.

Foundation for Chiropractic Progress Supports Opioid Commission Recommendation: Declare Opioid Epidemic National Emergency

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ – August 1, 2017 –

The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, the leading voice of the chiropractic profession, strongly endorses recommendations from the White House panel examining the nation's ongoing Opioid crisis to declare the epidemic as a national public health emergency.

“The chiropractic profession has long recognized the dangers of prescription opioid use and abuse, and has tirelessly advocated for drug-free strategies for patient care," says Sherry McAllister, DC, executive vice president, F4CP.

"A commitment to fighting this scourge must come from the highest levels of government. It will resonate throughout the healthcare ecosystem, and the chiropractic profession welcomes a declaration
of this magnitude. "

A new study from the National Institute on Drug Abuse shows that about one in three Americans -- 91.8 million people -- used prescription opioid painkillers like OxyContin or Vicodin.

In 2017, the American College of Physicians (ACP) recommended in an evidence-based clinical practice guideline published in Annals of Internal Medicine that physicians and patients should treat acute or subacute low back pain with non-drug therapies, including spinal manipulation. Low back pain is one of the most common reasons for
all physician visits in the U.S. and a major contributor to Opioid prescribing.

Summer Running Tips

With summer now in full swing, many folks are now deep into their running regimen. Here are some great tips to keep your body and progress in check.

Follow the 10% Rule

Only increase your mileage by 10 percent week to week. For example, if your current routine has you running two miles a day, five days a week (for a grand total of 10 miles), you will only want to increase your distance to 11 miles the next week. By slowly-but-surely progressing through your running workload, you allow your body and the muscles the time they need to adjust to your routine without overcompensating and leaving you more susceptible to injury.

Shoe Maintenance and Choice

Did you know that your running shoes need to be replaced after every 250 miles? It's vital that your shoes are in top condition so as to further mitigate your risk of overcompensation-related injury.

Your choice of shoe is key, as well. Folks with average foot arches and normal running mechanics are best fit for stability or neutral shoes. If you have low or nonexistent arches, your best bet is a motion control shoe. Cushioned shoes work well for those with high arches.

By metering your running distance week-to-week and staying on top of your shoe choice and care (in addition to your chiropractic treatment plan), you will maximize the health benefits that running provides, achieve your personal fitness goals, and minimize your risk of injury!

It's a win all-around!
