Chiropractic Poses Less Risk Than Primary Visit - New Research
The February 2015 issue of Spine contains a research study from the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice by James M. Whedon, MS DC, Reed Phillips, DC, PhD and colleges comparing the risk of injury in Medicare patients following chiropractic spinal manipulation versus primary care visits.The study evaluated Medicare data for 2007 tracking patients with a neuromusculoskeletal complaint that visited a chiropractor or primary care physician for the condition. Within seven days of treatment the researchers measured the risk of injury of patients treated by chiropractors with spinal manipulation versus patients assessed by a primary care physician.Their results demonstrated a lower risk of injury in the population that was treated by chiropractors. The cumulative probability of injury in the chiropractic group was over three times less likely than the primary doctor group. 40 injury incidents per 100,000 subjects for the Doctors of Chiropractic group compared with 153 incidents per 100,000 subjects in the primary medical recipients.The abstract and full study can be viewed in Spine.Whedon, James M., Mackenzie, Todd A., Phillips, Reed B., Lurie, Jon D.(2015) Risk of Traumatic Injury Associated With Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation in Medicare Part B Beneficiaries Aged 66 to 99 Years.

Palmer posing shirtless. On December 1, 1955 B.J. posed for the accomplished American commercial photographer Joseph Janney Steinmetz. Both renowned men were residents of Sarasota Florida and supporters of the nearby Ringling Circus.The description in the archive explains that the images served as a reference for an Atlanta sculptor to use while creating a bronze bust of B.J.

Colleges > University of Bridgeport Chiropractic College
The University of Bridgeport was founded in 1927 as the Junior College of Connecticut – the first junior college chartered by any legislature in the northeastern states. In the words of its founders, the college’s purpose was to develop in students “a point of view and a habit of mind that promotes clear thinking and sound judgment in later professional and business experience.” Although UB has changed in many ways since then, its commitment to student preparation and community service remains central to its mission.
The Junior College of Connecticut became the University of Bridgeport in 1947, when the governor of Connecticut chartered the institution as a four-year university with authority to grant the baccalaureate degree. By that time, the former estate of famed circus owner P.T. Barnum at Bridgeport’s picturesque Seaside Park had been purchased. Growth in students, faculty, programs and buildings was rapid. Strong growth continued throughout the 1960s and ’70s.
