Main interest is relieving pain. To provide pain relief she uses prolotherapy. She has published a paper on using prolotherapy for shoulder pain (PM&R 2016 January 2016). She also uses perineural injections and has invented a cream for topical pain treatment. A randomized controlled study has proven the effectiveness of this cream for pain relief (PM&R November 7 2015). She has completed a pilot study on using this cream for postherpetic neuralgia: 16 of the 20 people suffering from pain following a bout the shingles, on average five years previously, found relief from this cream. She is conducting a randomized placebo-controlled study using it for painful diabetic peripheral neuropathy. The study is underway with, currently, 81 of the 90 participants needed. As she has started selling the cream, the principal investigator is Dr. François Louw from Kelowna. The cream provides on average 53% pain relief (narcotics, 36%, anti-inflammatories, 23%, Tylenol 13%). To find out more about the cream, called QR cream, go to www.qrcream.com. She has developed a new way to examine for and treat low back pain which provides 78% of those examined with pain relief using a two-minute exercise, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXNS6PNKRPo. She is about to start a randomized controlled study to assess the long-term effectiveness of this technique.

Dr. Matt grew up in the western suburbs of Chicago graduating from Wheaton North High School in 1993. He grew up playing football, basketball, but excelled at baseball.
Matt attended University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana graduating in 1997.
While at the U of I he suffered some severe and painful injuries to his knees that led him on a journey to find healing through Chiropractic as the traditional approaches failed. Always wanting to be in the healthcare field he decided that because chiropractic changed his life, he would become a chiropractor.

"Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy for Chronic Pain" with Dr. William Pawluk
William Pawluk, MD, MSc is a holistic doctor near Baltimore, MD. Previous academic positions at Johns Hopkins and University of Maryland. Training: acupuncture, homeopathy, hypnosis, energy medicine, nutrition and bodywork. Considered the foremost authority on the use of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy in North America. Interested in holistic pain management, sleep, anxiety, anti-aging and general health.
He is interested in new solutions to stubborn, chronic and frustrating health problems. He wants to try to resolve the cause of the problem and not to simply put a Band-Aid on it. For example, most conventional treatments for pain rely on “numbing and dumbing,” that simply make the perception of pain better but don’t heal the cause. When on the Dr. Oz show, they both agreed that pain management should be focused on healing the cause. After 25 years of seeing the risks and side effects of traditional approaches, and studying various healing approaches, he discovered that PEMFs provide the most benefit and allowed safe, non-toxic, self-directed, self-controlled, at-home pain management.
To this end, he has worked with magnetic field therapies for 30 years and established an authoritative website www.DrPawluk.com. He is author of a comprehensive book on healing with magnetic fields called “Power Tools for Health.” This book describes what magnetic fields are, over 25 actions of magnetic fields in the body, how they work for over 50 health conditions, how to get a PEMF device for yourself and how to use it. This book is supported by over 500 scientific references and is the most authoritative, yet readable, book on the topic available to date. To help promote this healing concept, he has well over 50 radio, podcast, magazine and TV interviews combined. He has also been a cohost of a 2 hour holistic health radio show in Baltimore for 10 years. Most recently he hosted the Pain Solution Summit interviewing more than 30 experts on helping people with chronic pain.
