Their recent study in veterans concluded chiropractic is a proven, safe, long-lasting solution to pain while lowering the cost of healthcare by reducing surgeries. Assembly Bill 888 seeks to reduce the over-use of prescription addictive opioids by integrating non-drug treatments for pain. The second hurtle in the assembly was a unanimous vote of support by the Assembly Health Committee. This is one of the many programs attempting to lower US dependence of addictive drugs and lower the countries alarming rate of deaths by drug overdoses.

Neurologist - Dr. Ted Carrick D.C.
For over 20 years Dr. Ted Carrick, DC has been active in a worldwide practice specializing in treatment of Neurological disorders including sports injuries. He has been featured in PBS documentaries and other news conferences. Most recently. Dr. Carrick has been involved in weekly news conferences explaining chiropractic treatments and progress of National Hockey League Superstar Sidney Crosby, Captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
In January of 2011, Sidney Crosby received a major blow to the head and concussion that took away his balance and left him unable to skate and in what he described as a brain fog. For six month, conventional methods of physical therapy and rehab programs in the best hospitals of the world varied from little to slow progress. His progress increased dramatically when Dr. Carrick assumed a major role in his care plan with Chiropractic Neurology based treatments. Without the use of surgery or medications, Sidney Crosby demonstrated gradual improvements that allowed him to return to skating and return to playing professional hockey. He has not returned to his superstar form of two years ago, but Dr. Carrick is predicting continued progress even with some recent injures.
Dr. Timothy Weimer has completed the three to four year post-doctoral program in Chiropractic Neurology from the Carrick Institute under the direction of Dr. Ted Carrick. He is the only doctor in Modesto to be recognized for completing this rigorous program to become a Board Eligible Diplomate in Chiropractic Neurology.

Nation Has Pain Problem
One third of the US population experiences chronic pain. The kind of pain that lingers for months. The patients who experience this pain often feel a stigma and hear criticism from most of our healthcare system that is poorly prepared to treat pain. The cost of chronic pain last year was 558 billion in medical bills, sick leave and lost productivity. This is more than the cost of heart disease, the nations #1 killer.
This report was not a surprise to Dr. Weimer who started a post-doctoral program in Chiropractic Neurology over four years ago. Last year he completed the program and was honored with the distinction of being named a Board Eligible Diplomate in Chiropractic Neurology. Chiropractic Neurology allows the best and the brightest doctors to participate in seminars, lectures and patient training on the nervous system, nerve coordination and pain recovery. Dr. Weimer often serves as a specialist and/or consultant to patients and health care professionals.
Due to the rigors of the program and complexity of the Neurology subject matter there are fewer than 600 Chiropractic Neurologists in the world. He is the first and only chiropractor in Modesto to reach this level of expertise. Many of my patients owe the great success of their treatment plan to the study and clinical experience that Dr. Weimer has gained through this post-doctoral program.
