  1. My two oldest daughters who are are both dancers go a few times a year for hip alignment issues. Normal doctors were never able to help much.
     
  2. I will take it one step further. My youngest daughter, who is now a senior in HS, suffered a torn oblique her freshman year. Pretty much cost her a year of softball.

    Started out with a highly recommended orthopedic surgeon out of the Ben Hogan Center at Harris Hospital. 6 months later the oblique was not fully healed but other issues developed, including shoulder and upper back. I was recommended by another softball dad to go to the Benny Vaughn Athletic Therapy Center. They specialize in soft tissue injuries.

    I was a bit intimidated to see the pictures of professional, collegiate, and Olympic athletes on the wall in the reception area. It was an impressive client list. They have licensed sports medical massage thereapists that work on the affected area or areas to promote quicker healing. Once healed, you work with strength training specialists that work with you to rebuild strength in the area of the injury. Then they put you on a workout regimen to continue on your own that will help prevent that injury from reoccurring. (My sister who is a PT, uses some of the same treatments they do.)

    My daughter was back to throwing and swinging a bat on light duty within 8 weeks after seeing them. Took about another 4 weeks for her to dive full into playing again. It was a godsend after wasting six months with an orthopedic that should have had her in a sling and appropriate therapy. It wasn’t cheap. $120 per hour which is a typical visit.

    This kind of therapy isn’t a treat all thing, but for soft tissue injuries, it is freaking effective.

  4. My great-uncle Tom dreamed of becoming a physician but family finances just didn't permit that kind of academic pursuit, and although he wasn't by any means an unlearned youth his grades wouldn't win him a scholarship to medical school. Eventually he opted to become a Doctor of Chiropractic. I guess his hardscrabble life left him a little rough around the edges, so to speak, and although he was a pretty good DC as to technique, he never could build up a steady clientel. He moved around East Texas quite a bit and finally quit the profession in disgust. Uncle Tom was a contankerous old codger and had a personality that sometimes was rough as a dried cob, and I reckon it was that irrascable personality that led to his failure. Seems he just rubbed his patients the wrong way.
     
  5. Maybe the lack of patients was due to his TV ad that said “Uncle Tom’s Chiropractic Clinic: Everybody calls me ‘their favorite cracker.’”
     
  6. Check out Martin and Lewis over here. What’s the drink minimum?
