Dr. Kroes with Bobby Sheehan (director) and Jeff Hays (producer)
Sheehan and Hays are behind the movie "Doctored," a screening of which was sponsored by East Stadium Chiropractic and 8 other local wellness centers at the Michigan Theatre. The screening on October 22, 2013 had over 200 attendee's and is continuing to provide a spark amongst the medical and chiropractic communities today.
According to Rotten Tomatoes, "Doctored" is director Bobby Sheehan and producer Jeff Hays' entry into the emerging genre of health focused feature documentaries and follows both patients and health care providers struggling within a broken health care system. The story begins with the AMA's attack on their non-drug providing rivals, the chiropractic profession. Interviews and historical footage expose the AMA's clandestine campaign to eliminate chiropractic services, which culminates in a 15 year legal battle known as the Wilk case. The key point made early in the film is that as it relates to health care almost all areas have been "doctored". Endemic of the problem is the plight of today's MD who is forced to forgo the "art" of medicine in exchange for 12-15 minute appointments and forced prescriptions dispensing. Although the US makes up only 5% of the world's population, we consume over 50% of all the world's pharmaceutical drugs, while we endure worsening health. Sheehan shed's light on this "doctored" system and opens a conversation on real solutions (Rotten Tomatoes by Flixster).

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Dr. Brian.
"I am very fortunate to have, so-to-speak, my in-house chiropractor, Dr. Franco Colombu, as my own personal chiropractor. So, I visit Franco
regularly, and he comes over to my house. He adjusts my wife, my kids,
me, everybody gets an adjustment. And we feel always great when
Franco leaves. Even when I have athletic injuries he's always there for
me, and helps me. So it's really terrific, and I know that first hand. That's
why I always will be traveling around, all over the world, talking highly
about the profession of chiropractic. You chiropractic doctors are
really miracle workers, and that's why it's really great to have you

Dan O'Brien, Decathlon Gold Medallist
"You obviously can't compete at your fullest if you're not in alignment. And your body can't heal if your back is not in alignment. It was the holistic idea that I liked about chiropractic and that is what track and field is about. Every track and field athlete that that I have ever met has seen a chiropractor at one time or another. In track and field, it is absolutely essential. Chiropractic care is one of the things I think that no one has denied or refuted."
"If it were not for Chiropractic, I would not have won the gold

"I leave my chiropractor's office feeling fresh and rejuvenated and
back in line the way I should be. He has also been successful at getting rid of my tension headaches."
John Robbins, Author of Pulitzer prize-nominated international best seller, "Diet For A New America"
"Chiropractic works in harmony with the basic healing forces of the body, whereas the allopathic, western medical establishment doesn't have nearly as holistic a vision."
"Basically, I've always believed in chiropractic care. My parents introduced my brothers and myself to chiropractic care when we were very young and it's been an instrumental part of my life. I believe that it allowed me to do gymnastics when I was very little and allowed me to stay in sports and lead a very active lifestyle. I think it's natural to have aches and pains when you bend your body in directions it wasn't necessarily meant to [be bent in], so it makes sense to go to a chiropractor to get my body back in alignment. Ever since I can remember, I've gone to a chiropractor.
