  Chiropractic's Role in Sports-Related Concussion   
By Michelle Laframboise, BKin (Hons), DC
Sports-related concussion has gained popularity by media in much recent years due to the debilitating symptoms and the potential for long-term sequelae if not managed properly by a medical professional. Sports-related concussion injuries are not limited to professional athletes and sport these injuries are inherent to any level of sport participation or athletic level.

At its extreme, many chiropractors today are dangerously concerned about the practice. With the numerous changes in healthcare laws such as Obamacare, and even new insurance requirements, the business of chiropractic has altered forever. Many today find building the practice exceedingly difficult while also trying to maintain revenue.

We love to serve patients and help people. We love to serve so much that we often forget to serve ourselves. We dole out help like an outpouring of water from a pitcher. The only problem is one day we may wake-up to find the pitcher dry because we've forgotten to dip that pitcher back in the wellspring of energy to re-vitalize ourselves.

Hip implants used to be limited to patients who had hip fractures when surgical pinning of the fracture was considered unlikely to result in the healing of the fracture; and for patients who were older and suffered from severe degenerative arthritic disease. This population was generally less active and older, less likely to outlive their hip replacement. (Hip replacements are expected to last an average of 15 to 20 years.)

According to a few well-respected paleoanthropologists, our ancient ancestors (specifically Homo erectus) wereso efficient at running they could chase prey for hours, eventually killing the exhausted animals by hand. In an interesting paper that went on to create the barefoot running movement, Bramble and Lieberman claim that the consumption of meat obtained by long-distance running is the only way to explain the mystery of how Homo erectus was able to double its brain size in a relatively short time period about 2 million years ago.

For all the skeptical glances some chiropractors may cast upon infectious agents and antibiotics come a brace of papers that tell us in no uncertain terms that, in the final analysis, chiropractors need to respect the pathogen. First up is a study of 162 patients whose only known illness was chronic low back pain lasting more than six months following a previous disc herniation, and who also had bone edema changes in the vertebra adjacent to the previous herniation.

On the 100th anniversary of the first appearance of the phrase, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away", researchers from Oxford published a paper in the British Medical Journal titled, "A Statin a Day Keeps the Doctor Away: Comparative Proverb Assessment Modeling Study." After I read the paper, I felt "An Apple a Day Keeps the Statins at Bay" was a better direction for doctors and their patients.

One of your patients is in for treatment and catches you off guard by asking you a question about a news article she recently read. It seems that a new intervention for back pain was found to reduce the rate of serious side effects by 50 percent. She wants to know what you think about that. What questions would you have in order to provide her an answer?
Chiropractic care for pain following knee replacement.
By Jeffrey Bentz, DC and V. Robert Agostino, EdD
The patient presented to the chiropractic clinic with symptoms of genu varum and pain on the medial aspect of the tibiofemoral joint. After a detailed consultation and thorough comprehensive orthopedic examination of the patient's post-surgical knee, the clinician felt informed enough to proceed.

Imagine flying from New York to Paris on a jumbo 747. Your thoughts are on your vacation and experiencing the City of Lights.
