Chiropractic Health Hints

WITH DR. STANLEY LEVINE, D.C.

That Back Ache Of Yours Is Predictable

One of the most distressing statistics regarding the health of our community's
residents is that 8 out of every 10 of them will sometime be struck by low back pain.
It is downright depressing when you realize that so much of the pain and suf-
fering could be avoided by precautionary checkups or effective treatment at the
first sign of the problem.
The high incidence of low back pain is not surprising when we combine the
facts that most low back pain is due to mechanical defects of the spine. Also, 75%
of all forward bending or stooping motion occurs in the low back.
The structural or mechanical defects of the low back usually develop slowly
AR
and without pain over a period of many months.
DR. LEVINE
The first signs of the developing defect might be no more than an occasional
`catch' or a slight change of posture, or a vague weakness or tight feeling in the hips or legs.
As the defect develops to a crucial point a slight unguarded move or an unusual exercise is sufficient
to disable the victim for days, weeks or, unfortunately, permanently in some cases.
People must begin to realize that their chances of low back disablement are high, particularly if they
are over 30.
We urge all to arrange for regular Chiropractic checkups for potential or existing problems and to receive
proper care.
Your best insurance against disabling spinal disorders and specifically low back pain, is the detection
of spinal defects in the early stages.

FRIDAY. FEBRUARY 3, 1989

Darrin Gursky, son of Beth
and Bruce Gursky, and Eli
Hyman, son of Carole and
Norman Hyman, will twin
the observance of their b'nai
mitzvah celebration at Mat
Shalom Synagogue Saturday
with Simeon Kushnirenko,
son of Victoria and Igor
Kushnirenko of Kiev, USSR.
A construction engineer,
Kushnirenko has been in poor
health since the age of seven
when he suffered a concus-
sion because his father threw
a heavy object that struck his
head. He has been in and out
of hospitals ever since, and
because of his physical state,
received an exemption from
military service. The father
who struck him deserted the
family more than 25 years
ago.
After applying for an exit
visa in 1979, Kushnirenko
was requested to report to the
military office and was told
that he would be recruited. A
committee for "re-examin-
ation" of his physical fitness
was organized. He was hospi-
talized three times, even be-
ing admitted into a mental
institution for further
examination
The medical commission
confirmed he was unfit for
military duty except in case of
war. On the basis of their
medical affidavits, the
criminal case against
Kushnirenko was closed.
In September 1979,
Kushnirenko, his wife, Vic-
toria, a hydraulic technical
engineer, and child received
permission to leave the
USSR. Then, at the instiga-
tion of his estranged father,
the army refused to reconfirm
his medical exemption and
the visa was was not given.
Kushnirenko's father,
Anatoly, born in 1921, is the
head of one of the science
laboratories of the Academy
of Science of the Ukraine. In
1962, there was an article in
one of the newspapers criticiz-
ing his "immoral behavoir."
In February 1979, in a
telephone conversation with
Kushnirenko's sister, the
elder Kushnirenko said that
he would give his son a car, a
cottage and would help him
obtain his master's degree if
he would decide not to
emigrate.

But if the younger
Kushnirenko persisted in try-
ing to leave, he swore to use
all his connections to get him
drafted. The elder
Kushnirenko's interest in the
case of his son whom he
deserted years ago is ap-

parently explained by the fact
that he has a mistress whom
he wants to take on a trip
around the world. His son's
emigration would prevent
him from being allowed to do
this.
On Nov. 14, 1979, Igor
Kushnirenko received a
phone call from the police and
was told to report to the
military. He refused to go.
The police came to his home,
but the family refused to open
the door. On Nov. 21, while
his wife was out, the police
broke in by force and took
Kushnirenko and Simeon
away. It took Mrs.
Kushnirenko three days to
find her son and get him
back, but the police refused to
tell her where her husband
was, only saying that he was
in the army.
Later, it became known
that Kushnirenko had
declared a hunger strike. He
was -being threatened by
Kharkov military authorities
that if he -refused to take the
Oath of Allegiance he would
be court-martialed. His wife
claims that this is a typical
tactic used in the Ukraine to
discourage emigration.
Meanwhile, she went to
Moscow where she asked
Soviet official Zotov for visas
just for herself and her son,
until Kushnirenko's 'case
would be cleared up. This she
was refused, but she was pro-
mised that his case would be
finished by Feb. 10, 1980.
There still has been no resolu-
tion in the case.
Darrin and Eli have written
to Simeon and will attempt to
reach the family by phone.
