Articles for Dynamic Chiropractic

In addition to my job duties as assistant editor at DC (under the watchful eye of Steve Kelly, the best editor I've worked for -- yes, Steve, the check's in the mail), I also have my own column called "Getting Started on the Internet."

The target audience of the column is supposed to be chiropractors who are not Internet-savvy, but these articles can provide information for anyone who's interested. As a result, I decided to post them online for all to see. I hope you find them useful.
