I don't know about you, but I feel a lot of pressure from patients to decrease pain and clear up dysfunctions within the first few visits. I am trying to address symptoms as fast as possible, but sometimes patients' expectations of what I can do are just too high and unrealistic. This seems particularly true with chronic pain patients. Chronic pain patients often have been to other providers first: medical doctors, physical therapists, acupuncturists, massage therapisst, trainers, etc.

As chiropractors, we're trained to detect abnormal findings on physical examination and administer the appropriate treatment. If a patient may have a disc herniation on an MRI, we may end up basing our treatment around disc herniation protocols. A patient may have asymmetrical scapula positioning. We may then initiate a mid-back stabilization treatment strategy with the goal of normalizing scapular asymmetry.

By now, most of you are aware of the article recently published by Forbes magazine in which the author, Steven Salzberg, argues that nearly $500 million per year is "wasted on chiropractors." We are sure you had as visceral a response to it as we did, wanting to get in there and defend our profession from the inaccuracies and slant the author built into his writing.

An articulation agreement between the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) and The University of Winnipeg (UWinnipeg) was signed in May, creating a new academic pathway for qualified students to concurrently complete a Bachelor of Science, Kinesiology degree (Honours) and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree in seven years, instead of eight. According to school officials, it is the first agreement of its kind in Western Canada.

The arcuate foramen is an underestimated structure that clinically, has been associated with tethering of the vertebral artery and dissection from repetitive trauma with movement of the neck. Ischemic compression of the vertebral artery is due to the restriction of the artery as it crosses through the arcuate foramen, particularly in the ranges of motion of cervical flexion and extension.

Recently, multivitamin use was (depending on your nutritional politics) questioned, criticized or attacked. The news was based on a blistering commentary on three new studies showing that using multivitamins had little effect or no effect on cancer, heart disease and dementia.

This article's title needs a little clarification. There's a natural curiosity about a new thing, but just because it's new (comes in a glitzy package with slick promises) doesn't mean it's improved – or even works. So, in my opinion, the best modern strategies produce the most qualified new patients – even if the strategy or program has been around for decades.

On first blush, the knee joint may appear to be a relatively simple, stable joint that hinges through a single pivot point with several key anatomic points of strength. Yet if one takes a detailed look at the anatomy and function of the knee, its complexities quickly become evident. The knee joint is not simple; it is a complex compound joint that deserves a deep appreciation from musculoskeletal clinicians.
