Breakthrough Treatment Available In Winnebago

Winnebago, IL - Imagine forty years ago if you were told that lasers would replace scalpels in surgery or that robotic instruments would build cars; you may not have believed it. By the same token, would you believe that chiropractic treatments could be performed using a special hand-held instrument developed by NASA scientists; all while you were sitting in an upright position without any turning or twisting movements? According to Dr. William Johnson, “This new form of computerized treatment is so gentle and effective, that it amazes even the most skeptical patients. It’s called the Sigma Instrument and is the latest, state-of-the-art technology in existence today, and the only one in the Winnebago area.” The Sigma Instrument can safely and gently analyze and treat the spine and other joints to remove the nerve impingement that is often the cause of pains in the low back, neck, shoulder and elsewhere in the body. It also works on a variety of muscular conditions to loosen tight muscles with ease and comfort. Many patients say that it’s like getting a mini-massage. Even patients with knee, hip and foot problems such as plantar fasciitis are being helped. It is also covered by most insurance companies including medicare. Dr. Johnson says that, “The secret to the Sigma Instrument lies in its ability to deliver an extremely precise adjustment.” He says that, “Even though traditional forms of adjusting also work, people are drawn to this new technique because of how gentile it is and does not involve any twisting, especially in the neck.

Dr. Johnson uses the Sigma Instrument to analyze a patient’s spine and pin-point areas of Nerve Impingement Syndrome.

Many people love getting adjusted with traditional manual techniques, all of which are safe and effective. But there are a large number of people who never get to experience the amazing benefits of chiropractic because they are scared to have their spine adjusted in that way,” says Dr. Johnson. Now, there is no longer a reason to be weary.

The Sigma Instrument is perfect for anyone who has been thinking about going to a chiropractor, but hasn’t yet made that decision. Dr. Johnson wants everyone to be able to experience these same benefits and if you have any of the following conditions, the Sigma Instrument may be the answer you’ve been looking for... • Low back pain • Headaches • Scoliosis • Planter Fasciitis

• Sciatic pain • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome • TMJ • Knee or hip pain

• Neck & Shoulder pain • Arthritis • Fibromyalgia • Sports Injuries

Treatment with the Sigma Instrument is consistent, measurable and extremely gentle. Call our office today and mention this article to receive a FREE Sigma Instrument analysis to pin-point your problem areas and to see how the Sigma Instrument can help. Call 815-335-2820 today to reserve your free Sigma Instrument Analysis Scan. This technological marvel can help you return to a healthier lifestyle. You may no longer have to live with a persistent, painful condition. Call us today.

The best tips to prepare for the 2017 tax season It’s hard to believe the 2017 tax season is nearly here, and you’ll be getting the information you need to settle up your 2016 tax return with Uncle Sam. Take advantage of the tax benefits available to you throughout the year. First, think about getting organized. It’s important to have one place -- a large envelope or a file folder -- where you can accumulate tax information as it arrives. When it is finally time to fill out the tax return, a lot of information is required and every detail counts in making it a smooth process. Read on for 10 savvy tips for tax-filing season. 1. Maximize retirement plan contributions If your employer offers a 401(k) or other type of deferred pension plan, make every effort to contribute the maximum amount allowable -- especially if your employer matches your contribution. Otherwise you are leaving money on the table that could benefit you in your retirement. Think of the employer match as an immediate 100 percent return on your money. Even if there is no match, all of the funds are tax-deferred and grow tax-free. If your employer does not offer a retirement plan, then consider making a contribution to a traditional individual retirement account or a Roth IRA. The former potentially offers a tax deduction for the year the contribution is made, but both offer tax-deferred gains. RATE SEARCH: Stretch your retirement income with a CD ladder. Compare CD rates today. 2. Adjust your withholding Check your year-to-date withholding and consider changing the taxes withheld if you are expecting a large refund. This is especially important if you are claiming the earned income tax credit, or EITC, or the additional child tax credit. Why? The IRS is now required by law to hold all refunds on those returns until Feb. 15. The new law was put into place to allow the agency additional time to detect and prevent tax fraud. IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said in a statement: “It’s a personal choice if you want to have extra money withheld to get a bigger tax refund, but you have options available

if you prefer to have a smaller refund next year and more take-home money now.” You will need to complete Form W-4, Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate, to adjust the amount of taxes withheld and submit it to your employer. 3. Protect your identity Speaking of tax fraud, if you received an Identity Protection PIN, or IP PIN, in the past, then you must provide this number on your tax return not only this year but on all future tax returns. An IP PIN is a six-digit number assigned to eligible taxpayers that helps prevent fraudulent returns from being filed under your Social Security number. Remember, the IP PIN is your friend in getting the IRS to accept your tax return. However, this is no ordinary IP PIN, as it changes every year. You read that correctly: every year! If you do not receive the notification in the mail, you will need to go to the IRS website to retrieve it. RATE SEARCH: In the market for a credit card? Find and apply for credit cards from Bankrate.com’s partners today! 4. Get what’s yours According to the IRS, one out of every five workers fails to claim the very valuable earned income tax credit. If you worked and earned less than $53,505 in 2016 (the limit will be $53,930 in 2017), then use the EITC Assistant tool to determine if you qualify for the credit. You must file a return in order to receive the credit. Don’t miss out on this! 5. Declutter and reap a tax break If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to simplify and declutter your life, now is the time to get going. You can make money by donating all of those things you no longer need or want in your life. There are many charitable organizations that accept items other than cash such as clothing, books, electronics and other household items. The deduction is limited to the item’s fair market value, and the items must be in good condition or better to be deductible. If the value of the noncash items is more than $500, then you must file Form 8283, Noncash Charitable Contributions, and fill it in with some details. But it is well worth the effort. RATE SEARCH: Need a place to park your money? Compare CD rates

at Bankrate.com today! 6. Cash in on scholarly tax breaks If you, your spouse or dependents had higher education costs in 2016, there may be some tax savings for you. In fact there are multiple benefits available. The only difficult part is figuring out which one works best in your situation. Basically there are three different benefits: the American opportunity credit, the lifetime learning credit and the tuition and fees deduction. There are various requirements that may limit the benefit, but the IRS once again offers a useful tool: the Interactive Tax Assistant tool to help you find your way through the maze. You should receive Form 1098-T, Tuition Statement, from your school with the information required by the IRS to complete Form 8863, Education Credits. 7. Get health coverage in order Make sure you know what you need to report to the IRS on your health insurance. The shared responsibility provision requires that you and your family have minimum essential coverage or qualify for a health coverage exemption. Otherwise, you must make an individual shared responsibility payment for all months that you didn’t have coverage or an exemption. Most taxpayers just need to do one thing: Check the box that indicates you had health care coverage for all of 2016. If that is not the case or you received advance payments of the premium tax credit on the marketplace, then you may need to fill out Form 8965, Health Coverage Exemptions, and Form 8962, Premium Tax Credit, to complete your tax return. For more information, visit the IRS page on the Affordable Care Act. RATE SEARCH: Looking for a high-yielding savings account? Compare rates at Bankrate.com today!

Slices of life Never underestimate the power of a single piece of paper – especially if the paper in question is a (genuine and authentic) Certificate. My first grader came home with such a document this week. He brings papers from school just about every day. They are crunched and bent to fit inside his backpack. His Certificate was neither creased nor folded. It was held, with great care and attentiveness, in his little hands, where he could keep it safe from the crowding and crinkling hazards lurking inside his backpack. “It’s a Certificate! I got a Certificate at school today!” he practically shouted on his way in from the bus stop. He threw his backpack down on the floor and couldn’t get his coat and shoes off fast enough. He literally ran

into the kitchen and thrust the paper in front of my face so close that I had to take a step back to read it. “What do you have here?” I asked using the interested mom voice that I’ve spent years perfecting. “I dunno,” he admitted with the honesty of a 6-year-old. “But it’s signed by the principal!” He finished with a flourish. Certainly any paper signed by the

principal has got to be important and overflowing with good news – unless it’s a paper about a violation, detention, suspension, expulsion, unacceptable bus conduct or getting kicked out of the do-it-right club. Luckily, our paper was none of these things. “It’s a Certificate of Attendance,” I said, smiling back at his eager face. “Good job!” He grinned, pleased with himself, before running off, presumably to tell his brothers. I heard the phrase “Certificate of Attendance” ringing throughout the house as he spread his good news. At dinner, his accomplishment was the talk of the table. “Did the principal ever give you a Certificate?” he asked his brothers. And to his sister, “Do they give out

Certificates at the high school?” Then he turned to my husband and me. “Were Certificates invented yet when you were little kids?” We found a place of honor for the Certificate on the bulletin board next to his bed. We positioned the pins carefully next to the paper, without piercing it, so the Certificate would stay put without being ruined by a pinhole. Bedtime came too soon like it always does on special days that you don’t want to end. I tucked him in, with the Certificate hanging on the wall beside him. “You sure had a good day,” I observed. “Yep,” he agreed with a sigh. “I got my Certificate of Attendance.” His eyes were getting heavy as

sleep crept up on him. I brushed the hair on his forehead and was glad that he had a good day where he had the chance to reflect on his accomplishments. His eyes were nearly closed, but then he opened them and looked at me earnestly. “’Cept there’s just one question about my Certificate,” he said. “What’s that?” I asked, adjusting his covers. “I was wondering,” he mused. “What’s attendance?” Jill Pertler is an award-winning syndicated columnist, published playwright, author and member of the National Society of Newspaper Columnists.

In my opinion

The New Year looms before us with memories of years past and contentment for future and now Did you get everything on your Christmas list? Remember the days of getting the Sears Christmas catalog and having to wait your turn among siblings to slowly flip through the pages and jot down your wish list? Ah, memories. Even as a newlywed, I remember getting the JC Penney and Sears holiday gift catalogs in the heat of July. I wouldn’t pick out dolls or record players, but I would sigh over pretty home furnishings and other items that caught my fancy. We no longer get those fat tomes

of pretties tossed on our doorsteps or shoved in our mailboxes, but I still get a few magazines and catalogs brimming with beautiful things. It is calming for me to sit and quietly peruse, no matter what time of year.

It’s not about wishing I had those things anymore. I’ve had and still have plenty of pretties. Getting lost in the pages simply takes me out of my head and plops me in to a state of appreciation. “Oh, look at that! Oh yes, I like this!” I talk to myself and sometimes dog-ear the pages to return to again. As much as I love the simplicity of condo life, a fabulously appointed old home with charm and character (and a fairy tale forest) can never be totally ruled out. My love of old homes and decorating is just part of me. I wander around online and look at beautiful places and am glad I don’t have the upkeep. A taste is

enough. There is something about the start of a new year that sends us backward in our thoughts too. I remember fondly the ghosts of Christmas past but I don’t long for those days. My sons didn’t use a catalog to make their Christmas lists, which were always pretty simple; money, gift cards, the latest gaming system. Back then I was a strict stickler about video games and now I love how my grown sons talk to each other nearly every day as they play games online across the time zones. Bonds form in all kinds of ways, including computer games. List making can still be a good thing. With the advent of the new

year, my Prince and I make lists of where we want to go along with being open to what lies unexpectedly ahead. We plot and plan our days off and vacations and “big” events knowing that just hanging out and being happy is enough. Playing GLAM Scrabble with friends, taking a hike in the woods, walking the Womanspace labyrinth, getting a pedicure, a fine glass of wine with my beloved….those are not things we put on a wish list but they are things that matter and that last. I look forward to kayaking the lake in the summer as much as our upcoming Valentine trip to Paris. My outlook for the year ahead is that it will be even better than last year. Every year builds on the successes and lessons learned of the past and we only go forward. I know more professional milestones are to come and I will delight in the joy of them. I know my honey and I will grow closer and share new experiences. I know we will enjoy time with our offspring. (I like that word even if it sounds like our kids are zoo exhibits.) Other than that, 2017 is a wideopen canvas. My artist hubby and I will paint more on it, figuratively and literally. I love this time of year, looking back and looking ahead, and being perfectly happy right now. (Kelly Epperson wishes you joy and happiness in 2017.

One way we can help each other get through these challenging times is to keep our dollars local. Here are three good reasons. Reason #1: Shopping locally saves you gas and wear and tear on your vehicle. Reason #2: When you spend your money locally, you support the businesses whose property taxes pay for our municipal services. Reason #3: Many of our youth programs are supported and sponsored by local businesses and if we don’t support them, they can’t support our kids. BROUGHT TO YOU BY:
