Nearly 1,000 dead, thousands more displaced by catastrophic floods in Pakistan | USA TODAY #Shorts

Flash floods triggered by heavy monsoon rains across much of Pakistan have killed nearly 1,000 people and injured and displaced thousands more since mid-June.

The monsoon season, which began earlier than normal this year, has lashed Pakistan with particularly heavy rains and rescuers have struggled to evacuate thousands of marooned people from flood-hit areas. The crisis forced the government to declare a state of emergency.

In northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, flooding destroyed the gates of a major water control system at the Swat River, leading to flooding in the districts of Charsadda and Nowshera, said Sania Safi, a top administrator in Charsadda.

“We preempted the situation and warned and forced hesitating residents to leave their homes for safety and move to relief camps established at government buildings in safe places,” she said.

When I meet someone new and they ask me what I do, I tell them I’ve been a practicing chiropractor in the northern suburbs of Pittsburgh for 35 years. The majority of their responses, in some way, indicate they believe I treat back problems with chiropractic adjustments. This is certainly true. I am able to give patients pain relief for their back and neck problems by adjusting their spinal misalignments.

This article will discuss a particular adjunctive treatment modality that I also use at times called Myofascial Disruption Technique (MFDT).

The Angry Preacher

I have sat under a number of great preachers, like my mentors Ossie Robinson and J.L.Hollingsworth. They both were hell fire and brimstone preachers. These types of preachers are very scarce and far and few in between. I was ordained by Ronnald Longworth years ago and he also was that type of preacher.
