Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, Oct.. 27, 2010 7B It's possible to 'get back the life you love' BUSINESS QUINCY CHIROPRACTIC Linda Satchwell Staff Writer Dr. Stephen Crosse is a chiropractor with years of hands-on experience; He's also very cognizant of cur- rent, evidefice-based re- search. It's a potent combination that blends patient care and scientific outcomes to give his patients the highest rate of recovery possible. Grosse's Quincy practice has been in operation for 16 years. He recently opened a Graeagle office, as well. Crosse betrays his Irish heritage when he answers questions, so the story he tells of how he ended up in Plumas County is both bright and meandering. He was living and practic- ing in Orinda, California, in the Bay Area, and he was thinking about a place to re- tire eventually, he said. His sister brought him an article about Plumas County, which was about to get its first traf- fic light, in Quincy, where two girls had been injured by a car while crossing the street from the high school to Safeway. "I've got to see [Quincy] before they get it in," Crosse said. So, he and his wife traveled to Quincy for a Feb- ruary vacation; it snowed for four days straight, he said. They were staying in a bed and breakfast that didn't have television, and since the Olympics were on at the time, they headed down to the local pizza parlor to watch the competition. Crosse said that during the commercials, he watched the people. He saw that they "related to each other entirely differently" from those he was used to in the Bay Area. It made a strong impres- sion. "This place has some- thing different going on," he thought. Three months later, he'd opened his chiropractic of- fice in Quincy, working here half the week and in Orinda the other half. He wanted to see if he could get enough business in Quincy to move here full time. The rest is history. His shorthand answer to the same question was, "God was being nice to me." Crosse shifted from con- summate storyteller to clini- cian in order to explain the essential nature of his work. As we age, there is slow, in- cremental damage to liga- ments (elastic, fibrous tissue that connects bones togeth- er) and nerve endings, which "sets up a cycle of damage." It's very common; it happens to everyone, Crosse said. Ninty percent of back and neck problems are the result of this incremental damage. Further, 80 percent of people miss at least one day in their working lifetime due to back pain. It takes 3-6 visits to have a clear indication of whether treatment is likely to be suc- cessful. While only a "tiny percentage" of patients don't improve, those who don't would stop at that point. For the rest, the level of likely success is measured in three ways: symptoms; physical limitations result- ing from symptoms (lack of sleep, or trouble walking for 20 minutes, for instance); and, "risk of chronicity" (which has clot to do with whether you perceive that you're likely to improve). Crosse, who attends a re- search semin&r in the Bay Area once a year to make sure he's aware of current research affecting his pa- tients, falls into Irish narra- tive style once again to ex- plain the importance of re- search to practice. Chiropractic research moreor less got its start with a study done on people in their seventies who had instability problems and were falling as a result. Re- searchers had patients in the study bounce up and down on an exercise ball. This reduced their fall rate by 50 percent in only one month, an incredible rate of improvement. Today, said Crosse, "there's not a single Olympic athlete that doesn't do it. Instability exercises greatly improve the function of the nervous system." This research study was the catalyst for further serious chiropractic re- search. Interestingly, said Crosse, many of the prac- tices developed over the years through clinical feed- back were born out by re- search, but the science was instrumental in discovering exercises "that put you back in control and let you re- build nerve endings." Crosse explained how painful spasms and result- ing nerve damage sets up a damaging cycle. An essen- tial part of what he does is teach his patients to get in control of that cycle, to slow it down and stop iL He gives patients the understanding and the exercises to do that. Many people assume that, as they get old, they'll have to accept pain and limited 445 Chain Saw X-Torq engine reduces fuel consumption up to 20% and emissions up to 60% LowVib anti-vibration system  minimizes fatigue i Air Injection TM removes up to 97% ' ' ..

That's not true, he said. "They don't have to ac- cept it... getting old doesn't have to be like that." That's why he picked his slogan, "Get back the life you love." Crosse said he gives people back their lives by showing them "the tools to control pain.., it's so fun--it's why I like going to work every day."
