INVER GROVE HEIGHTS, Minn., May 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cahill Back & Neck Care Center has released information to raise awareness on how chiropractic care can help correct posture. Postural issues are at the root of many ailments, such as pain in the back, neck, hips, legs, and feet. Correcting posture thereby relieves pain in many areas of the body. Good posture also makes it easier to be physically active since it reduces muscle stiffness as well as general physical inefficiency. It is well known that good posture is important for good health. Plenty of sources offer standard advice for maintaining it, such as to sit up straight. Newer advice generally revolves around the same theme, though it offers specifics such as to avoid craning the neck forward when texting and to avoid hunching over computer keyboards. Experts often say that it's a good idea to use specialized ergonomic furniture to make it easier to keep the back straight. Unfortunately, it often takes more than following these tips to maintain good posture. This can be due to habit, but often, it's because the body is compensating for some existing misalignment or even an injury. Then, it's a good idea to get some help to bring everything back into its proper position. "Chiropractic care helps return the body to its proper alignment. This makes it much easier to maintain good posture without the need to consciously think about it. We also recommend therapeutic exercises to strengthen the muscles involved in maintaining posture. For those whose muscles are too tight instead of too weak, we offer massage. Often, it takes a combination of two or three types of treatments to address the issues that contribute to stubborn postural problems," said Dr. Scott Stinson of Cahill Back & Neck Care Center. Once postural problems are suitably addressed, patients can look forward to a reduction or elimination of pain and stiffness in the back as well as the weight-bearing parts of the body. Other benefits include a reduction of abnormal joint wear, decreased fatigue, and an overall improvement in mobility. These improvements don't just help in the short-term. Reducing joint wear, for example, can help prevent arthritis down the road. Decreased fatigue makes it easier to exercise, and this will also bring both short- and long-term health benefits. For these reasons and more, it's a good idea to get chiropractic and other treatment for postural problems. This chiropractic clinic offers spinal alignment treatments, massage, therapeutic exercise plans, and treatment plans that are tailored for specific conditions. They serve the area of Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. Call (651) 451-7222 to schedule an appointment or visit them online at http://cbncc.com/ for more information.

KIRKERSVILLE, Ohio (AP) — An armed man gunned down a new village police chief on an Ohio street on Friday and then killed two employees in a nearby nursing home, where he later was found dead, a sheriff said. No nursing home residents were injured, nor were two hostages briefly held by the alleged gunman. The slain police chief, Steven Eric Disario, had headed the Kirkersville Police Department for only about three weeks, Licking County Sheriff Randy Thorp said. Disario was shot on a street near the Pine Kirk Care Center, and the two female employees and the gunman were found dead inside, Thorp said. Authorities identified the gunman as Thomas Hartless, 43, of the nearby village of Utica. The employees were Marlina Medrano, a nurse, and 48-year-old Cindy Krantz, a nurse's aide. Medrano's age was not available Disario, 36, was a father of six children, with a seventh on the way, the sheriff said. Flowers and flags appeared in an impromptu memorial outside the village police hall, located less than a block from the site of the shooting. Thorp called it a hard day for all. "We've lost a police officer. It's just a tragic event," he said. "I guess the only peace of mind is that the threat is over." Thorp gave the following timeline of events in the village of about 500 residents, roughly 25 miles (39 kilometers) east of Columbus: The gunman was in a wooded area behind the nursing home when he encountered two passers-by, whom he temporarily took hostage. Disario, responding to a report of a man with a gun, apparently encountered the gunman in that area. The chief's last radio communication said he had the man in sight. When a shot was fired at the chief, the hostages escaped unharmed. "We don't know the cause or the purpose or what drove this individual to do this," Thorp said, adding that was being investigated. Responding officers found Disario on the street and then investigated a report of a gunman at the nursing home, Thorp said. Some of the nursing home's 23 residents barricaded themselves during the shooting, but none of them was injured, he said. All were relocated to other facilities until investigators were out of the nursing home. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, who came to the scene Friday afternoon, said search warrants had been executed on two vehicles owned by Hartless and at his home in Utica, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) away. He later said Medrano had a relationship with Hartless. Officials said they lived on the same street. Thorp said law enforcers were still working to determine what, if any, relationship the man had with the nursing home. The facility is secure, and it's unclear how the gunman got in, he said. The shooting closed down the main street in the village, which was flooded with police officers from several surrounding agencies and with ambulances. "We don't have this stuff go on around here," said Ron Rogers, 67, a local shopkeeper. "The only sirens we hear are when the Fire Department goes out." A woman who lives across the street said she and her 6-year-old son heard it happen. "We heard it all," said Tiffani Chester, 25. "We heard yelling, we heard the gunshots, then it was just sirens." Pine Kirk is licensed for 24 patients and had 23 as of May 3, according to Ohio Department of Health records. A message was left with the center, whose employees appeared wheeling medical carts out of the facility Friday evening to put them into storage while patients are away. Peter Van Runkle, the head of the state trade association representing nursing homes, told the Dispatch that Pine Kirk caters to "the forgotten members of society." "They provide them with a small environment that's less institutional than some facilities might be," he said. "They do a good job of taking care of a niche clientele." The state Bureau of Criminal Investigation is leading the probe into what happened. County Coroner Michael Campolo didn't expect to release autopsy results until Sunday, after all four victims had been examined. Gov. John Kasich ordered flags flown at half-staff in Licking County and the Statehouse and expressed his condolences in a tweet. "Join me in praying for his family, friends and colleagues, and for the others injured in this tragedy," the Republican governor said. Welsh-Huggins reported from Columbus. Associated Press writer Mark Scolforo in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and AP researcher Rhonda Shafner in New York City contributed to this report.

The incident took place after a basketball match between two high schools in the South Carolina city Friday night. An Ohio police chief and two nursing home employees were killed Friday after a gunman opened fire in Kirkersville. The chief was identified as Steven Eric Disario. The incident happened at Pine Kirk Care Center, where gunman Thomas Hartless took two passers-by hostage and shot dead 36-year-old Disario. After shooting Disario, Hartless barged into the nursing home and fatally shot his 46-year-old ex-girlfriend Marlina Medrano and Cindy Krantz, 48, a nurse aide, the Columbus Dispatch reported. The hostages were unharmed and police found Hartless dead in the center. "When the shooter got close to the nursing home, he apparently was in very small woods back there and actually took two passersby as hostage," Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said. "It was in that vicinity, very close to that, that the chief of police was in fact shot and was killed." Twenty three residents were in the building when the shooting occurred, but were evacuated. Residents in other nearby houses were directed to remain inside until the situation was under control. Students heading to Kirkersville Elementary School, which is close to the nursing home, were diverted to Watkins Middle School, reports said. The elementary school was placed on lockdown. Disario reported in his final communication that the suspect was in his sights. He was found unresponsive by deputies who arrived at the scene. "It's a real hard day for all of us," Licking County Sheriff Randy Thorp said. "The deputies who pulled him to safety, if you will, are having a real hard time." Disario was a father of six and a baby "on the way," Thorp said. "Ohio mourns the loss of Kirkersville Chief Eric Disario, who died in the line of duty. Join me in praying for his family, friends and colleagues, and for the others injured in this tragedy,” Kasich said. The suspect Hartless had a lengthy criminal history. In court documents filed a week ago, Medrano said she feared for her life, the Columbus Dispatch reported. “I no longer feel that my support can help Tom with his issues,” Medrano wrote in a May 5 petition for a civil protection order, according to the report. “I am afraid to be alone with him, that he will hurt me for good.” In a December 2016 report, she told police that Hartless “doesn’t like police, has a handgun and threatens that if she ever filed charges on him he would make her pay for it.” “Thomas has even drove her out SR 79 north past the Wooden Nickel, beat her and then showed her a hole that he dug, advising her that he would put her in it if she did not stay with him,” an officer wrote in the filing. “She stated that he is always threatening that he will hunt her down and kill her if they are not together.” "We had two cases with him about six or seven years back," Knox County Prosecutor Chip McConville told NBC News in a phone interview. Knox County is located in south of Licking County. Hartless also spent time behind the bars for domestic violence and criminal damaging/endangering charges. Prior to this, Hartless completed 15 months jail time for aggravated assault and aggravated menacing, NBC News reported. He also fulfilled a three-year stint on probation in 2014, McConville told the news outlet. "I remember this guy. He wasn't one of our frequent fliers," McConville said. The prosecutor said the abduction case involved Hartless allegedly holding a woman against her will inside a vehicle during county fair week.

INVER GROVE HEIGHTS, Minn., May 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cahill Back & Neck Care Center has released information to raise awareness on how chiropractic care can help correct posture. Postural issues are at the root of many ailments, such as pain in the back, neck, hips, legs, and feet. Correcting posture thereby relieves pain in many areas of the body. Good posture also makes it easier to be physically active since it reduces muscle stiffness as well as general physical inefficiency. It is well known that good posture is important for good health. Plenty of sources offer standard advice for maintaining it, such as to sit up straight. Newer advice generally revolves around the same theme, though it offers specifics such as to avoid craning the neck forward when texting and to avoid hunching over computer keyboards. Experts often say that it's a good idea to use specialized ergonomic furniture to make it easier to keep the back straight. Unfortunately, it often takes more than following these tips to maintain good posture. This can be due to habit, but often, it's because the body is compensating for some existing misalignment or even an injury. Then, it's a good idea to get some help to bring everything back into its proper position. "Chiropractic care helps return the body to its proper alignment. This makes it much easier to maintain good posture without the need to consciously think about it. We also recommend therapeutic exercises to strengthen the muscles involved in maintaining posture. For those whose muscles are too tight instead of too weak, we offer massage. Often, it takes a combination of two or three types of treatments to address the issues that contribute to stubborn postural problems," said Dr. Scott Stinson of Cahill Back & Neck Care Center. Once postural problems are suitably addressed, patients can look forward to a reduction or elimination of pain and stiffness in the back as well as the weight-bearing parts of the body. Other benefits include a reduction of abnormal joint wear, decreased fatigue, and an overall improvement in mobility. These improvements don't just help in the short-term. Reducing joint wear, for example, can help prevent arthritis down the road. Decreased fatigue makes it easier to exercise, and this will also bring both short- and long-term health benefits. For these reasons and more, it's a good idea to get chiropractic and other treatment for postural problems. This chiropractic clinic offers spinal alignment treatments, massage, therapeutic exercise plans, and treatment plans that are tailored for specific conditions. They serve the area of Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. Call (651) 451-7222 to schedule an appointment or visit them online at http://cbncc.com/ for more information.
