Dr. Helma Chairs FHSAA Sports Medicine Advisory Committee
Monday, 09 July 2018
Pat Helma, D.C., DACBSP, was in the spotlight recently, per a newspaper report in the Tallahassee Democrat.  Dr. Helma chairs the 15-member Sports Medicine Advisory Committee (SMAC) of the Florida High School Athletic Association.  The FCA fought hard in 2012 to amend §1006.20, FS, to add a chiropractic physician to the committee. Dr. Helma was recommended by the FCA to fill the first such appointment, because of the confidence the FCA has in him to educate the committee about the effectiveness of chiropractic in athletics.  He is the lone DC on a committee of eight allopaths/osteopaths, one podiatrist, one dentist and three athletic trainers.  Yet, in this short time he has become chair of the committee!  This is something to be celebrated by all Florida DC’s. Thank you, Dr. Helma, for meeting this heavy obligation as an exemplar chiropractic physician.  Dr. Helma is the right FCA member at the right time to lead this committee and to showcase chiropractic.  Read more to access the Tallahassee Democrat newspaper report.

Renewal notices for Health Care Clinic Exemptions - OPTIONAL
Friday, 06 July 2018
Several members have received notices from the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) to renew their Health Care Clinic Exemption status.  The fee for this renewal is $100.00.  Historically, this exemption did not require renewals or renewal fees. This exemption is OPTIONAL for chiropractic physicians who wholly own their practice in accordance with their licensing regulation of 460.4165 and meet the PIP provider eligibility criteria; see link to form below.  For chiropractic physicians no longer wishing to retain their "exempt" status with the AHCA, the renewal notice may be ignored and they will be dropped from the list as of October 30,2018.

In addition to reducing the sensitivity of muscle spindles or the segmental sites of a reflex pathway,1 spinal manipulation is thought to affect the neural outputs to both muscle and visceral organs by affecting both paraspinal muscle reflexes and motor neuron excitability.2 A new trial3 sought to determine the effect of spinal manipulative therapy upon both heart rate variability and baroflex sensitivity to add to the body of literature demonstrating the physiological effects of spinal manipulation.

The National Opioid Crisis: YOU Can Help
Monday, 31 July 2017
Nothing has captured the American consumer more than the opioid crisis. What the chiropractic community has been saying for years is now being said by everyone: opioids kill and there is a need to find a non-drug alternative.
 
It should be us – the chiropractic profession – that answers this question. However, other non-pharmacologic provider groups have their own agendas, and we can’t let them win in the field of public opinion.
