Orthopedic Insanity and the Bionic Woman by Corte Madera Chiropractor Dr Harte

A while back, I received the Spring, 2012 issue of "Connections" in the mail. "News for a healthy Marin County," a marketing piece for Sutter Health.

The back cover is entitled "Petaluma's Bionic Woman." It is the ridiculous story of a woman who has not one, not two, but FIVE JOINT REPLACEMENTS... both hips, both shoulders and a knee. Yes, she's smiling in the photo. I wonder how high a drug load is involved to allow this smile. Might there be something seriously wrong with this woman's health? Might the surgeons look to the cause... subluxation? Lotsa luck!

This is NUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Despite the high-tech arrogance of Modern Medicine, Man cannot replicate joints that have developed over millions of years of evolution. The materials are, obviously, different, and so they will have different physical qualities, so they will respond different than a normal joint. What of the tendon (muscle-to-bone) and ligament (bone-to-bone) attachments, the fake cartilage? What of the blood and lymph? What of the permanently altered biomechanics? What of the permanently altered proprioception? Yes, I know, you have never heard of this word. This is the body's sense of itself in space. The proprioceptors are located in the joints to do this, so that your Innate Intelligence, through part of the brain (chiefly the cerebellum) can make postural decisions, second-by-second. All this is out the window when a joint is fake. What is the loss?

And all this assumes that the surgery went well. Often it does not. I had a practice member, some years ago, who had one knee replacement. She came to me with problems in the other knee, plus a huge list of other problems, the result of a lifetime of massive subluxation. Well, she had no patience. After only six weeks, she dropped out of care and went and got that other knee replaced. Well, she went into shock from the anesthesia, then went into two months of deep depression. By that time, she realized that the new knee didn't work, it did't bend right. What to do, especially after a life-threatening response to the surgery?

One current practice member had a knee replacement about eight years ago, and it broke. This is not only common; it is to be expected. These things are only meant to last so long. The problem is now, due to age and poor health, he is not fit to go under the knife to replace the replacement. So he just has to suffer.

For the most part, joint replacement is a scam. Medical treatments, including long-term prescription of powerful anti-inflammatories, and especially injecting joints with corticosteroids, accelerate joint destruction. Then, there's the diagnosis that leads to surgery. I can't count how many people over the years were told that their hips or knees were "bone-on-bone." Always the same phrase. (I guess they all took the same sales course.) The idea is that the patient has no choice. Well, those who have been smart enough to go from orthopedic patient to a practice member here, have been able to take part in my favorite game, "CHEAT THE SURGEON." I adjust the joint involved, usually adjacent joints, and most importantly, the spine.

What does the spine have to do with this? Hips, knees, shoulders, other joints, like everything else, are controlled and coordinated by the nervous system. If there is interference... subluxation.... that joint cannot heal. It cannot function properly. The orthopedist will never understand this. You got a bad knee? That's all he or she looks at.

I know the idea of joint replacement appeals to many on the basis of "getting it done," as if problems of decades will disappear, instantly, under the magic of the scalpel, sticking in some fake anatomical part. Fake is fake. And if you're still subluxated, you will not function properly, structurally or internally.

High tech? You want to see the ultimate high tech? Look in the mirror.
