Childbirth classes to start Birth Partners Pregnancy Mentors has announced Childbirth Education classes will begin May 3, at 6 p.m., at the Workforce Connection in East Quincy, and will contin- ue May 5, 10, 12 and 17. Why attend childbirth class- es? Your healthcare provider, and your family and friends are all valuable sources of in- formation during your preg- nancy, delivery and your ba- by's early weeks. However, the body of information about this most important period of your child's life is growing daily. Doulas and childbirth educators are specialists at compiling and updating evi- dence-based information and resources for parents as they approach the most important day of their child's life. Evidence indicates that: Delivery was less distressing in those who attended child- birth education classes. At age 6-9 weeks, infants born to parents who took classes that included early in- fant care displayed signifi- cantly better sleeping pat- terns than infants of parents who did not. Information gained about the use of pain medication in labor was dearly, helpful when women made decisions about pain relief. Classes facilitated positive birth outcomes, including re- duction of Cesarean births. The mother's confidence in her innate ability to give birth was enhanced. Positive feelings toward the birth, health caregivers and the infant were fostered. There was a decrease in the use of drugs during labor including costly epidurals. Attendance at childbirth classes was associated with a 75 percent increase in the odds that a child would be breastfed. "Your classes helped me see that I need to start making re- sponsible health decisions for my child now, during preg- nancy," Birth Partners partic- ipant, 2010. Classes are partially funded by PRS California Women, In- fants and Children and Plumas Crisis Intervention and Resource Center. A slid- ing scale fee payment arrangement is available. Classes are free for WIC and other eligible families. Pre- registration for classes is re- quested.

Anderson, DC Is an MRI always necessary? The MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is a fantastic tool when it comes to viewing the spine. However, the positive findings seen on an MRI are not always helpful in predicting where a person may be feeling pain or symptoms. This is due in part to the wide variance seen when comparing spine images of people who have symptoms to those who are symptom-free. People with significant pain and symptoms may have a negative MRI, while others without any symptoms may show anomalies on the MRI that would seem to suggest a painful condition. A research study performed by Paul E Beattie, PhD, PT, OCS, and others at the University of Rochester confirms this disparity between MRI findings and the symptoms people feel. The study included 408 people with symptoms. After filling out a self-report and diagramming their pain or symptoms, these patients underwent an MILl scan. Those who complained of numbness or weakness did not show problem areas on the MRI scans that would account for their sensations of numbness or weakness. Also, MRI findings like disc'bulges, central stenosis, or mild to moderate nerve compression did not correlate with any specific pain patterns. Only when the MRI showed an extruded disc or a severely compressed nerve on one side of the spine, could pain be predicted. In these irlstances, pain was usually felt as far down as the knee on the same side as the extruded disc or compressed nerve. Other patterns of pain did not equate to problem areas seen on the MRI. The patient's self-report of pain and symptoms is only one part of the medical examination. Careful diagnosis also relies on a thorough physical examination and appropriately administered diagnostic tests. As a chiropractor, I perform a thorough exam to determine whether special studies, such as MRIs, are necessary. If you have pain, but don't know where to turn, you might give chiropractic a chance; I am an expert in determining the necessity of these tests. And they are expensive, so we don't want to do them unless it's necessary. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, call Chris W. Anderson, DC at 832-4442. i
