  Sit or Stand? Strategies to Improve Workplace Health and Reduce Disease   
By Paul Hooper, DC, MPH, MS
It's high time to discuss a somewhat revolutionary trend that is beginning to take hold: the notion that it is better to stand, as opposed to sit, while at work. During the past several centuries, humans have moved from a largely agrarian lifestyle to one in which many people sit throughout the day.

We often neglect the role of the internal obliques in central zone core stabilization. Why? It takes a backseat to the more trendy and popular research on the transvere abdominis; it rarely, if ever hurts, so people don't consider it a problem; and it's not as visible as the external obliques, leading to the "out of sight, out of mind" factor. That's really a shame, because the internal oblique is a linchpin to core stabilization and force control of the lumbar spine, thorax, pubic symphysis and sacroiliac joint.

There is a widespread understanding within the profession of the general guidelines for care of the concussion patient. These include guidelines for physical and cognitive rest, return to normal activities and so forth.

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.

For almost a century, researchers have been attempting to identify specific dynamic and static anatomical measurements that predict three-dimensional motion during the gait cycle. In the early 1900s, Dudley Morton developed a foot classification system based on the respective lengths of the individual metatarsals.

Elastic therapeutic taping is a therapeutic approach rapidly gaining popularity in the chiropractic profession. It is a natural complement to adjustments and other adjunctive therapies and rehabilitation for common patient conditions such as low back pain. Use of taping procedures is supported by research, and quick and easy to perform.

"Myofascial pain syndromes (MPS) are among the most frequent pain conditions encountered in the general population. They are also the most often under-diagnosed or misdiagnosed condition." MPS, previously called fibrositis or myofibrositis, could be the underlying etiology of even nonspecific back pain.
