Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, March 17, 2010 5A Chris Berger, assistant director on the Smacker's commercial, had a bit of fun making snowballs while setting up for filming. Nolan Eggleston and Hunter Knoeche have portrayed the young versions of Tim and Richard Smacker for three years of commercials. The boys patiently s{ood their "mark" for long periods of time during set-ups. Snowmaking equipment from southern California came to Johnsville for the Smacker's commercial -- just in case. Location manager Jof Hanwright said that they dusted snow around the houses the day before filming began, but Mother Nature stepped in and did a much better job for both days of filming. That's luck. SMUCKER'S. from page 4A ? , Matthew;atlmitted that it was the tit, st time he had ever experienced snow. Dri- ving during a snowstorm was mesmerizing, a bit of slipping and sliding, added excitement, but this, he said, as he indicated the snow cov- ered mountains and dusted pines completely surround- ing him, was the prettiest thing he'd ever seen. Jof Hanwright, location manager for The Cartel, was directed to Johnsville while scouting Sierra and Plumas counties for two days. He was directed to find 1950s farm- house architecture, but in a neighborhood. "That's a little like looking for a needle in a haystack," he said, so discovering Johnsville was a real find. Fundraisei Because the Johnsville lo- cation was meant to portray Ohio, filming de-enphasized the pine trees and concentrat- ed on apple trees and other deciduous trees in Johnsville. The crew also filmed at a Calpine ranch. In the two prior years, The Cartel, owned by director and cameraman Leslie Dek- tar, filmed Smacker's com- mercials in Sebastopol and Watsonville. The company has previous- ly made car commercials along the Feather River Canyon, so Hanwright was fa- miliar with Plumas County. Hanwright said that filming in the area has been a positive one. "Everyone has been so hos- pitable and friendly," he said. For Johnsville residents, the filming provided a brief bustle of activity and a bit of excite- ment for winter-weary folk.

Anderson, DC FLEXION DISTRACTION TECHNIQUE Flexion Distraction Technique is a technique primarily designed to target low back disc problems. This technique requires a special table, which 1 have in my office, that allows the doctor to move the patient's lumbar spine through different ranges without the patient having to help. They can just lay there and relax. When a patient presents with a disc problem, it is critical that the doctor recognize that certain procedures may not be appropriate for this patient. A traditional adjustment for low back problems is one where the patient is placed on their side and the doctor gently puts pressure on the low back. The goal is to improve the function of the lumbar joints. A complication can arise when this procedure is performed on a person with a disc problem. The rotation that this adjustment produces in the low back puts more pressure on the disc. Though rare, this procedure could lead to further injury to the disc. This is where Flexion Distraction Technique comes into play. This technique allows me to produce movement at each different level of the lumbar spine. For example, if a patient has a disc injury at the I_,4/5 level, I can provide gentle traction as well as move it through its normal range of motion without increasing stress on the disc. By providing traction to the disc, I can lessen the stress on that disc which will often significantly decrease symptoms. In some cases, where a patient presents with leg symptoms from a pinched nerve (sciatica), I can relieve the pressure on the nerve by utilizing this technique. In addition to patients suffering from disc pain, this technique is effective with other low back conditions. Muscle spasm, pain and tightness can be relieved in a very comfortable fashion by moving the lumbar spine through its range of movement. This techriique is also very comfortable. Most patients who I treat jump at the opportunity to be treated on this table. If you are suffering with a lumbar disc problem, but are hesitant to apply chiropractic, this technique may be appropriate for you.
