Dr. Jack A. Schulman
Dr. Jack A. Schulman is a graduate of Temple University and Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. He has served the community for over thirty-five years. He blends traditional chiropractic treatment with the low force techniques of Activator, Cox, muscle release, and kinesiology. In addition, he uses ultrasound and electro trigger point therapy. His main goal is to get people well as quickly as possible. “Most patients should show at least 50% improvement in four weeks. If not, they are referred out for further diagnosis.”
Why Chiropractic? People are looking for ways to decrease their pains and heal their injuries naturally without relying on taking medications and having to worry about their side affects. In June, 1999, researchers at the Boston University School of Medicine discussed potentially fatal side effects of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) use. NSAIDs include medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, (Advil, Motrin), naproxen sodium (Aleve, Naprosyn, Naprox), diclofenac (Voltaren), indomethacin (Indocin), and many others. M. Michael Wolfe, M.D., professor of medicine at BUSM who led the study, said that it is a silent epidemic, because gastrointestinal complications are not preceded by any warning signs in a majority of individuals. He estimated that approximately 16,500 deaths occur annually in the U.S. from ulcer related complications associated with NSAID use.
Pain can be alleviated by chiropractic adjustments to the spine and extremities, proper corrective exercises, and an anti-inflammatory diet, which Dr. Schulman will discuss with you. The most frequently treated conditions by chiropractors are: back pain, neck pain, headaches, arm pain, and leg pain. In addition to spinal pain, Dr. Schulman also treats problems in the ankles, knees, wrists, elbows, shoulders, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
Have you ever been told that you’ll just have to live with the pain? Have all other treatments failed to help you? Why not try chiropractic.
