Hello and welcome to the Loehr Health Center Blog.
My Name is Dr. Steven Baca and every month I will be covering a variety of topics on the Internal Side of Chiropractic. What exactly does that mean? More of that in a minute, but first I’d like for you to get to know me a little better.
I have been a Chiropractor for over 15 years and in that time frame I have helped many patients with any number of aches, pains and ailments. I am married with two children and we currently live in Ozark, MO. My hobbies include hunting, fishing and the great outdoors, but what I love most is seeing a smile on someone’s face that I have helped. One of the misconceptions about my profession is that most people only think I treat low back pain and headaches. I decided to change that perception, so I began furthering my education and enrolled in a 300 hour post graduate study in Internal Medicine. The courses in the program are things that most people would not associate a Chiropractor with. These courses include studying subjects such as:
- Endocrinology (Thyroid, Adrenals, Ovaries/Testes and Pituitary)
- Infectious Diseases
- Cardiovascular (Heart) Disorders
- Lung Function
- Neoplastic (Cancer)
- And Dermatology (Skin)… just to name few.
In fact, when I began the program it was like I started Chiropractic College all over again. When finished with all the coursework and after successful completion of a comprehensive test, I will hold the distinguished title of Diplomate of the American Broad of Chiropractic Internists (DABCI).
Enough about me, as promised, let’s talk about the Internal Side of Chiropractic. Once a month I will be tackling topics dealing with internal disorders and how natural Chiropractic care can help. Disorders that I will be covering in the next few weeks will include discussions on Nutrition, Diabetes, Blood work, Food Allergies, Hypothyroidism and Digestive System just to name a few. If you have a special concern or would like me to discuss a certain topic, just shoot me an email at [email protected] , and I’ll do my best to talk about it on an up and coming blog. But for now just know that we at Loehr Health Center are here and EMPOWERING YOUR FAMILY TO LIVE NATURALLY!
