The End of Average Care

Once upon a time, a patient of mine had a sodding enormous dog called Loki.  An English mastiff, they can weigh as much as 25 stones or 155 kg, like this chunky monkey, Zorba. Imagine him as a lap dog…… Literally the size of a small horse. Anyhoo, as much as he loved Loki, he didn’t love the vet bills.  Flea injections, anti-biotics etc etc…

The cows are mad: Me and vCJD

In 1997, on a dark winter night back home for a week from the AECC, I met a former girlfriend who also had recently gone off to university. During our chat it became obvious she was lip reading and she had not been deaf before. Not only had she lost a lot of her hearing, she was also having balance issues and had been falling…

Back to the Future (of healthcare)

By now you will have had your inbox, filled with incredible offers of discounts on products and courses from people you have had very little contact with for months or possibly since the last black Friday. They are trying to make you buy something, by making it cheap. They have to try to tempt you because the rest of the year they give you NO…

Tonight I will be heading up to Birmingham to talk at the BCA Chiro Live 2023 conference. I will be talking about the idea of Integrative Chiropractic, the art of integrating the very best new science and practical insights into our existing clinical model. And that is a very important point, integrating into our existing model, not instead of. I see a very worrying trend…

Laughing Gas is not Funny – NO Joke

One thing that makes us clinicians rather than therapists is a wider knowledge base and ability to diagnose. You may have magic in your hands, the power to unlock the stiffest and twistiest of spines, but if the patient has something so serious it could kill or disable them, that power is going to be wasted. One such example is patients turning up with bilateral…

How to stop sugar making you stiff (Halloween special)

We are only 2 weeks into Evolved collagen being on sale and we are already putting in another order with the manufacturer. It is going out faster than the sweets on Halloween, but without giving you advanced glycation end-products (AGE’s). The skin, bones, cartilage, ligaments and tendons of the UK are feeling more youthful already. To celebrate this, below is a link to the patient…

Why Lemurs love vitamin B12

This week we have been enjoying some relaxed time off with the kids and on Tuesday we headed to Marwell zoo. We had a right old time, and finally got to see the snow leopard, who is normally nowhere to be seen, aka hiding in their cave thingy wishing for actual snow. This time he/she (couldn’t tell, let’s say it’s a her), was in fine…
