Adjust Your Advertising Subluxated Pen

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Yesterday I authored a post regarding a 1996 ICA Review magazine and I mentioned that in the entire publication there was only one use I could find of an e-mail address being printed. None of the author bios included e-mail addresses, none of the classified advertisements mentioned e-mail, none of the ads for more than two dozen vendors listed an e-mail address for further contact, except one. Take a look at the very bottom of the ad and you’ll notice an e-mail address for Anybody remember Netcom and those 3 1/2 inch floppy disks they […]

1996 ICA Review and Who Had a Website

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. This morning I was scanning through a 1996 copy of the ICA Review (International Review of Chiropractic) and I noticed there was almost no evidence of anyone claiming to have a website or e-mail address. The publication is nearly 12 years old, but surely there had to be at least somebody mentioning the Internet in some fashion. I was attending chiropractic college at the time (CCCLA) and was quite active on the Internet, but was anyone else? I went back through the 98 page publication page by page, checking contact information for vendors, e-mail addresses for […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Royal Palm Beach chiropractor, Dr. Edwin Cordero, e-mailed me this photo, earlier today. It features yours truly receiving an upper cervical chiropractic adjustment while sitting on a folding chair inside a bus terminal. The terminal is a major hub of the country of Panamá’s mass transit system. The bus terminal is a massive facility with thousands of people passing through each day. I had the opportunity to provide volunteer chiropractic services there on at least two different occasions. The photo above was taken in February of 2004, while the CREW was in Panama for the 10th […]

Coarsegold Chiropractic Office on Highway 41

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. On a recent road trip (partially along the California five freeway) to Yosemite National Forest, I passed by a number of chiropractic offices. We stopped in Bakersfield on Friday to visit the office of Dr. James Ryan and took some photographs of chiropractic offices in Fresno. On Saturday, I was in Oakhurst, Fish Camp, and Coarsegold, and took photos of signs and outsides of chiropractic offices I located while in those towns. This photo was taken off of California Highway 41. There is a new hotel and casino in Coarsegold (which looked massive) but I didn’t […]

First Day of Summer Funnies

On the first day of a hot summer this guy should be extremely busy. Oh wait…. Slowly he would cruise the neighborhood, waiting for that occasional careless child who confused him with another vendor. Sure thing Johnny, you’ll be screaming, but it won’t be for ice cream.

School Kid Saying No to Drugs

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Saying no to drugs has been the mantra of many an anti-drug advocate. But most of those advocating saying no have not differentiated between medications like marijuana and drugs like Ritalin. There are drugs and then there are DRUGS. How are innocent children to know the difference? A group of chiropractic students were having that very discussion back in 1997 and a chiropractic classmate of mine later penciled the image shown here, which depicted a school kid wearing a “Just Say No” T-shirt while stoned on antipsychotic medications (such as Ritalin or Adderall). I was recovering […]

Alternative and Natural Cancer Remedies

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Cures for Cancer promoted online? Whoa! Had a bit too much caffiene tonight and found myself up late viewing health news. Came across several stories regarding the FDA and a warning the government agency has sent out to some 25 companies regarding advertising of Cancer Cures. Honestly, I was floored. Are companies really advertising online for cures to cancer? I had to check it out. Appears as though there is quite a bit of activity in this space, not only among mainstream cancer agencies (marketing things such as proton therapy) but there’s a bunch of alternative […]

Automobile Accident Checklist For Glove Compartment

The image shown below is a scan from a supersized postcard I received from Denver Chiropractor Steve Visentin, and it features an automobile accident checklist to be put in a person’s glove compartment. The postcard was made out of heavy card stock and the opposite side had information about chiropractic care, symptoms associated with automobile collisions, and information on contacting Dr. Steve’s office in Colorado. The web site associated with the card is titled Whiplash Denver. It’s a large image and it may load slowly. I’ve seen several variations of this type of checklist in the past and I think […]
