By Editorial Staff
The Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research (PCCR), in celebration of its 20th anniversary, has announced it is spearheading a fund-raising campaign to support chiropractic research. According to Dr. Christine Goertz, vice chancellor for research & health policy at Palmer College, "We are hoping to raise $400K a year for chiropractic research by asking 20,000 DCs to contribute $20 (per year) towards our research efforts."

Having trained interns and mentored new practitioners, it has been my observation that their No. 1 clinical concern is adjusting skills. Their second clinical concern is their ability to read X-rays. Physical diagnostic skills are a distant third. It is wise to be concerned about adjusting skills and reading film. Both are fundamental. My concern is that physical diagnostic skills are of such little concern.

The sternocleidomastoid muscle (SCM) can be an elusive contributor to neck pain because of its critical role in stabilization and equilibrium. The SCM is one of the most complex muscles in the body because of its wide array of muscle-patterning actions and intricate connection to force transmission via the fascial lines.

Alcohol intake is one of the primary risk factors for many human cancers, and is strongly associated with cancers of the oral cavity, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, liver, breast, and notably, the colon and rectum. A systematic review with meta-analysis published in 2014 provides an update regarding the association between alcohol consumption and risk of colorectal cancer. The meta-analysis included 23 case-control studies and two cohort studies.

In general, fractures in children heal well with little intervention as long as the alignment is good. Fractures involving the growth plate, however, are a different issue. In fact, growth-plate injuries are the primary reason for the subspecialty of pediatric orthopedics. The anatomy and biomechanics of pediatric bone differ from that of adult bone, leading to unique pediatric fracture patterns, healing mechanisms and management.
