Closed For Repairs

By Michael Dorausch, D.C.

You may have been wondering, where is all the news lately. I admit we have had a lot less news posted on the Web site during the past month and I have not answered as many e-mails as a typically do. I appreciate the calls and the e-mails I have received from those of you checking to see what was up with me. (I’m still here) Well, I don’t want to get into it much but I’ve simply been busy with technical repairs.

Since the beginning of October I’ve had to replace or repair two office computer servers, three office computer workstations, a LaserJet printer, and various other computer related items in the office. It was one of those months when things got bad and then they just got worse. As a result, I’ve had to cancel some chiropractic trips and I am sorry to have missed those of you I thought I would see in October and this month as well. But the best part about it all is that we are now finalizing our upgraded audio/video server (along with other office computers) which is waiting to process some of the chiropractic talks of the more than 160 chiropractors that I have listened to during 2001. Most of November and December will be focused on getting these talks made available to you.

We have a new CD coming out featuring Dr. Richard J. Santo that is just awesome. We also have video of the legendary Dr. Bob Sottile conducting a health-care class which will be available both on video and on the Web site. We have our first all Spanish video also to be available both on the Web site and on VHS which features Dr. Luis Ocon from Salinas, California.

I have about 600 e-mails (no exaggeration) that I will answer once we have the office network back online. I apologize to those of you that have not had e-mail replies from me in late September and early October.

I didn’t want to leave you without any news so here are some links that I came across in the last few days which I think you’ll find interesting. We’ll be back!

A Yahoo News article suggests that classical musicians are twice as likely to suffer from serious backache as other professionals, with as many as 70 percent having spinal problems. I’d love to hear from any of you that take care of musicians and get your input on this.
