BACK IN ACTION Tri-Zone Movement Therapy Founder Bruce Farmer M.D. Certifies Back to Basics Chiropractic P.C. for Pain Relief Program for Chronic Low Back Pain

Hillsboro, Oregon (PRWEB) June 03, 2015

Dr. Bruce Farmer, M.D., President and Founder of Fitness Therapeutics Inc and creator of BACK IN ACTION Tri-Zone Movement Therapy, a new treatment for musculoskeletal pain relief announces that Back to Basics Chiropractic P.C. is now using Dr. Famer’s ‘Back in Action’ pain relief program for chronic back pain.

Dr. Farmer developed BACK IN ACTION after a personal recurring injury to his lower back. This approach offers pain relief, rehabilitation, restores functioning, posture, aligns joints, and is entirely movement based without pain medications or surgical intervention. It is currently under study at the Oregon Health & Sciences University Department of Rehabilitation Services. Many post-operative patients with continued pain improve significantly with this program, increasing their daily activities and range of motion.

Founder of Back to Basics Chiropractic, Dr. Brian Rueben, D.C., had a total hip replacement in 2014 and credits the techniques of Dr. Farmer for restoring him to health. “These methods really work, and got me back to functioning at a normal level better than any other methods that I tried. My experience with these techniques led me to pursue certification so I can help other people. We now use the Back in Action program in our clinic. It is the movement piece we’ve been looking for.”

Dr. Rueben has been practicing chiropractic medicine for twenty-three years. The clinic now offers individual and group classes using the Back in Action1 Back Pain program, instructional DVD and color brochure.

Dr. Bruce Farmer assists people suffering from back pain individually, in groups, and offers the BACK IN ACTION Tri-Zone Movement therapy to health practitioners for their patients suffering from chronic pain.

KC HiLiTES Teams Up with Action Sports Icon Brian Deegan


(PRWEB) November 05, 2014

Press Event: SEMA 2014

12:30 WEDNESDAY @ KC Booth #23735

KC HiLiTES has been the leader in performance automotive lighting for almost 45 years and has always supported the biggest names in the sport. Legends such as Rob MacCachren, Larry Roeseler, Walker Evans, Rod Hall, Larry Ragland and Ivan Stewart have all used KC HiLiTES to give them a competitive advantage in the darkest of deserts. Now, KC HiLiTES opens a new chapter and is proud to announce a partnership with 6-time Lucas Oil Off Road Championship winner and 16-time X-Games medalist Brian Deegan. Deegan joins an already stacked team of elite KC drivers and teams. Brian brings a host of talents and will not only use KC’s line of performance lights, but also has a direct hand in developing a complete line of Deegan 38 brand lights and accessories that will be designed to outperform.

“To say we are excited is an understatement,” said KC HiLiTES owner and CEO, Michael DeHaas. “There’s a reason why this guy is the biggest name in action sports and his passion to be the best and succeed is what KC HiLiTES is all about. It is a great fit for us and the brand not to mention giving him a competitive advantage when the sun goes down.”

2015 will start a deliberate development process as the two powerhouses work together to develop new products and possibly even evolving existing ones. With a self imposed, early spring deadline for the first batch of products to enter the production phase, these new lights with a dramatic Deegan look, combined with KC’s superior optics, legendary performance and quality will be ready for a summer 2015 release. This will bring a new level of engagement for the iconic brand and give our distribution a new line to support the younger demographic that Deegan attracts.

“I am so excited to get started playing with these new lights. The new product they have is amazing, and I cannot wait to unleash some Deegan flavor on these LED’s,” said Brian. “It is exciting to see what they have done with the FLEX and Gravity technology that allows their LED’s to outperform any other LED in the market,” he added. With Brian competing on motorcycles, off road trucks, rally cars, monster trucks and anything else that requires precision control, KC HiLiTES will have something for every adventure at any level.
