Featured Flickr Phins Picture

Here is a little something outside the norm, occasionally I’m going to put up a random pic from Flickr that is tagged with “Chicago Bears”. I think it’s a awesome way to display other people’s creativity, whether that is photography, painting, drawing, or some other kind of flickr-applicable art.

I just think it might be a fun way to be a unique Chicago Bears Blog

Hope you fans enjoy it!

e of the spine combined with a slight inclinationto lateral curvacuture. The brace consists of aleather corset accurately moulded to the body andproperly strengthened with well-tempered steelstays, shaped to conform to the contour of thebody when in a normal condition, thus furnishingspecial support to the vertebrae involved. Owing to its funnel shape above the waist andby means of crutches placed under the arms, itproduces partial suspension, which not only pre-vents the further spread of the disease, but com-pletely controls the disposition to inflammation socommon to these cases. Fig. 4704 shows the condition of the patientwhen presented for treatment. Fig. 4705 gives afront view of the corset after application. Fig.4706 presents a rear view of the same, showing thesteel stays bearing upon the transverse processes4704 of the vertebree. These braces are a great improvement over plaster of Paris jackets, beingmuch lighter, more comfortable and cleanlier, besides being easily removed.
