Featured speaker of the assembly is the Hon. John Perez, who will be speaking at the morning session. It’s too late for early registration but I think […]

That phrase was followed by watch vp debate online, vp debate live stream, vp debate 2008 time, palin debate, palin bingo, palin biden debate live, and others.

Stop the Drama Vote for Obama

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I grabbed this photograph on Friday when a patient in my chiropractic office in Los Angeles took off his jacket to lay face down on an adjusting table. Were not talking politics in my chiropractic office (although many patients have initiated discussion) but we’ve had several 2008 election related posts to the Planet Chiropractic web site. One of the most popular is website secrets, which took a look at how three presidential candidates were optimizing their web sites for search engines. Just yesterday we had a news post about 2008 presidential and party funding from healthcare […]

  • Comments Off on Stop the Drama Vote for Obama

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is likely the most connected political figure to the profession of chiropractic, certainly the best known. Earlier, I was preparing a news article for the International Chiropractors Associations 16th annual fitness symposium when I noticed a number of various articles on Planet Chiropractic referenced Schwarzenegger. There was a February 2006 article regarding the appointment of chiropractor and bodybuilding legend, Franco Colombo, to the California State Board of chiropractic examiners. There was an August 2007 news article regarding the signing of the California budget, along with news about new Google news features. There […]

Chiropractic for Veterans

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. When you’ve been managing content on your web site for nearly 10 years, you sometimes lose track of posts you have made in the past.
