How Chiropractic Care Helped One Man Get His Wiggle Back

(NewsUSA) - He's the original "Blue Wiggle," and possibly the last person on this planet you'd ever recognize as suffering from clinical depression.

However, that's exactly what Anthony Field, founder and co-star of the popular children's musical group The Wiggles, says was the cause of numerous health problems that plagued him for years, and -- parents, brace yourselves -- jeopardized the longevity of his wiggling career

"I was burdened by chronic back and neck pain, as well as a string of digestive and food sensitivity issues that extenuated my general ill health, fueled by clinical depression, to the point that I could no longer continue," he says.

It's what got him back on the right track, though, that's perhaps even more surprising.

"Chiropractic care saved my career," Field proclaims.

In his new book, "How I Got My Wiggle Back," he describes how a certain chiropractor helped change him from an overweight, pain-racked mess into the muscled Adonis he is today. "His turnaround has been inspirational," says Kent S. Greenawalt, chairman of the not-for-profit Foundation for Chiropractic Progress.

Dr. Tali Reeis-Martin is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and completed her medical training at Albany Medical Center in Albany, New York. Working in an outpatient setting, she treated chronic and acute obesity-related diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, elevated cholesterol, and heart disease. Depression was also common, along with low self esteem and chronic fatigue. Most of her patient visits involved counseling about eating right and living a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Reeis-Martin realized that most of these conditions could have been cured, or even prevented, if the root of the problem, obesity, was appropriately treated. She then became interested in bariatric medicine, attended many seminars, and became a member of the American Society of Bariatric Medicine.

Dr. Reeis-Martin realized that there was a great need for more bariatric practices run by physicians who would be able to provide the time and patience needed to educate patients and design individual plans for them. Bariatric medicine is her passion, and it is her goal to provide safe and effective non-surgical weight loss.
