  CTS: The Neglected Musculoskeletal Condition   
By Anthony Rosner, PhD, LLD [Hon.], LLC
There is little doubt back pain is the marquee condition for domestic and workplace disability, to say nothing for the prominence and reputation of chiropractors worldwide. Yet it's quite obvious that while such manual tasks as finishing, cleaning, meat packing, and other tasks in manufacturing become more widely recognized, repetitive stress disorders should take their place among leading musculoskeletal disorders – carpal tunnel syndrome in particular.

With a busy schedule, you often have to arrive at a quick impression as to the possibility a presenting condition may be a cervical or lumbar nerve root compression disorder. The potential causes can be DJD, disc bulging, disc prolapse or anything causing compression.
By Keith Charlton, DC, MPhil, MPainMed
When thinking about prevalences or treatment success rates, does 3/10 equal a 30 percent prevalence or success rate? The answer, surprisingly, is no. The fraction 3/10 is a proportion and reflects harvesting of data from which one might be tempted to claim a 30 percent success rate.
By Todd Turnbull, DC, CCSP
A patient was referred to my office after receiving treatment from various providers with no results. The patient was training for the Olympics as a marathon runner and was unable to run or walk without severe medial knee pain. Upon examination, I found a weak sartorius muscle and corrected it.

When I was at Palmer in the mid-1980s, we were given a set of notes in one of our diagnostic courses. The notes covered approximately 70 orthopedic and neurological tests for various regions of the body. They were printed on grey paper and everyone referred to them as "The Grey Notes."

In the Aug. 1, 2014 issue of Dynamic Chiropractic, I reviewed some of the literature demonstrating the role of the chiropractic adjustment in post-concussive care. A year later, I presented a series of brief cases demonstrating patient improvement in reverse digit span – an outcome measure related to attention span – under chiropractic care. This series included patients with and without concussion.

Considering the percentage of patients who've either never seen a DC (meaning they likely visit a medical doctor first / exclusively) or have seen a DC, but no longer do (suggesting they currently go to an MD first / exclusively), it's big news when you can compare the two provider types, particularly when it comes to managing musculoskeletal conditions.
