iPad app for posture screenings

So, the group of office the we are out at the puyallup fair with this year has been using the Mobilr posture screen app for the iPad. After playing with the app for a few minutes, found that it was an easy to use app that is a great visual aid when talking to the people out at the fair, at health fairs, school talks.

After a little discussion, decided to get the iPad 2 so we can use the program as needed. I have been one that prefers the android or microsoft platforms better than the apple systems. But, I am liking the ease that the iPad allows me to post things quickly, check email without having to boot up the desktop in the morning.

I think that if the posture screen app was available on the droid tablets, I would have bought one instead of the iPad. But so far the wife likes the iPad too.

September 18, 1895

September 18

Today is the birthday of chiropractic.  1895, DD Palm made the first adjustment of Harvey Lillard.   116 years after that first adjustment, we are one of the most popular alternatives to allopathic medicine, yet we are only seeing a very small percentage of the population.  

People are inundated with pharmaceutical marketing on tv, in print and even online.   Our emails are bombarded with  messages about cheap deals on various medication.

How do you break past the mindset that everything that ills you can be solved by a pill.  The reality is that the medications may relieve your pains for a time, but it inevitably returns in force.   Many people live day to day popping over-the-counter pain medications like skittles.  Unaware of the continued degeneration progressing under these suppressed warning signs.

What if we could get more of these people in to see us to correct their poor posture, their fixated joints, their lost motion.   Even if we could only improve the quality of their daily life by 10 percent. Decreasing the amount of medication that they needed on a daily basis.  What a difference that could make in the world today.

If you have not seen a chiropractor, why not?   If you do, have you sent your family and friends to be checked?  Who do you know that needs to be seen? The need for corrective care is vast,  the need for maintenance is even greater.
