Straightening up for younger years

by Salena Elizabeth
Times Staff Reporter

The Mequon Campus held the first Patio Series Event on October 30. Dr. Richard Kemp of Kemp Chiropractic presented on "How to stay young the first 100 years."  
When defining what "young" means, people typically think of and compare it to the cosmetic industry; being wrinkle-free and sag-free.
Kemp's purpose was educating the audience about the importance of spinal care and how mobility can make a person appear older opposed to having crow's feet around the eyes.
In the early 1900's the average life span was 50 years. Currently humans are living an average of 80 years.
With new medical technology, medication and constant medical research, humans are able to outlive the branches on the family tree. Today people can replace many parts of the body: the liver, kidneys, pancreas, etc.; however, there is one part that cannot be replaced the Spine.
The structural system is the most neglected part of the human body. Once the spine degenerates it cannot be replaced, Kemp said.  
Kemp also added an interesting fact. When visiting a nursing home there is a large percentage of residents that suffer with some sort of posture defect. The three indicators are: residents with canes, walkers and wheel chairs. Many of these people suffer from spine disorders, seeing a chiropractor can reduce this percentage.
Kemp stated, "there are two problems with the spine. One, it's always behind us and we never see our spine; and Two, we don't know much about our spines" said Kemp.
The autonomic nervous system regulates involuntary action. The ANS controls the body's internal organs consisting of: stomach, heart, lungs, liver, large and small intestines, kidneys, bladder, sex organs, etc.  A subluxation is a bony misalignment in the spine and can affect not only the area in pain but also the nerves that exit between those vertebrae. The atlas bone, which is the first cervical vertebrae in the spine, can directly impact any of the organ functions.
Kemp asked the audience, "If your spine was on your face would you take better care of it?"
Kemp Chiropractic believes in these three phases of chiropractic care:
Pain Relief

With proper spine maintenance on the spine the human body can get on a healthier road to feeling and looking younger.
Kemp currently has two employees who work on his team. Jill Lindsay is the office and marketing manager and Sheri Georgenson has joined recently as a massage therapist. Any further information regarding spine care, please contact:

A pumpkin's time to shine

by Bobbi Kleemann
Times Business Manager

On October 25, the West Allis Campus, hosted a pumpkin decorating table for students and staff.  
Students and staff decorated small pumpkins with glitter, paint, fabric and the occasional fake bugs.  There was a vampire, sleepy head, witch, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, a Wisconsin Badgers theme, a hello kitty, and even the traditional look. All who had participated enjoyed expressing their artistic side when decorating the pumpkins.
When asking a student if they preferred a scarier look or a funny look, they responded, "Sometimes a scary look, sometimes a moderate look and maybe something connected with what's happening around the country,"said MATC student Bryan Switalski.
Over 35 pumpkins were donated by Student Life and the students were able to keep their masterpieces or donate them.
