Swiss chiropractic practice-based research network and musculoskeletal pain cohort pilot study: protocol of a nationwide resource to advance musculoskeletal health services research

Although chiropractors frequently treat MSK disorders, there is no real-world evidence on the topic of health care outcomes among patients receiving this type of care. A nationwide Swiss chiropractic practice-based research network and MSK pain patient cohort study will have the ability to monitor MSK pain condition and healthcare quality improvement in addition to healthcare quality enhancements. Phase II will recruit consecutive patients aged 18 years or older with MSK pain from community-based chiropractic services participating in the PBRN into a prospective chiropractic cohort pilot study. Phase I's chiropractic cohort pilot study, published in peer-reviewed journals, is phase I of the study phase, which was presented at local and international conferences and disseminated by peer-reviewed journals.

Attitudes towards chiropractic: a repeated cross-sectional survey of Canadian family physicians

Abstract Background The majority of primary care patients receive both medical and chiropractic services; however, interprofessional relationships between physicians and chiropractors are often suboptimal, which may adversely influence patient care. Most patients were referred to chiropractic care by at least one individual, mainly due to patient demand or a lack of response to medical care. Most physicians agreed that chiropractors provide safe treatment for some musculoskeletal disorders, although others disagreed that chiropractic care is beneficial to non-musculoskeletal disorders. Chiropractic care was a useful complement to standard care, according to the majority, but most respondents also stated that practice diversity among chiropractors was a barrier to interprofessional cooperation. Conclusions Although generally optimistic, Canadian family physicians' views towards chiropractic are split, most physicians agree that practice diversity among chiropractors is a barrier to interprofessional cooperation.

Case management of chiropractic patients with cervical brachialgia: A survey of French chiropractors

Abstract Background: Background information About the French chiropractic profession On, for example, the degree of consensus on clinical issues is unknown. Objectives The first aim was to see if French chiropractors' management choices were appropriate for various neck problem scenarios. Method A questionnaire was sent to a randomly selected sample of all French chiropractors affiliated with the national chiropractic college by a random draw. It consisted of an invitation to participate in the research, a brief case review, and drawings of five stages of how a case of neck pain progresses into a brachialgia, resulting in a dysfunctional spinal cord. Participants were asked at what stages patients would be treated solely by the chiropractor and when patients will be referred out for second opinion or other healthcare without chiropractic care, as well as an open ended option, resulting in a "five-by-six" table. The percentages of respondents selecting the right management tactics were calculated for the various scenarios, as well as the 95% confidence intervals. As the patient progressed, the responses tended to external assistance, and in the most serious situation, the majority of respondents would have referred the patient out. There was strong consensus for the two extreme cases, moderate agreement for the lawsuits next to these two, and at least agreement on the issue relating to the "middle" case. Conclusions The French chiropractors who participated in this study seem to have a similar approach to patients with neck pain that progresses into a brachialgia and worsens.

Cerebral Hemorrhage Following Chiropractic Activator Treatment – Case Report and Review of Literature

Abstract Background Despite widespread use of chiropractic care for various conditions, there is a paucity of evidence regarding intracerebral hemorrhage related to chiropractic injuries. A brain hemorrhage in unusual location was revealed by a CT scan. A chiropractic activator cream was applied directly to the back of her head and the upper cervical spine right away before symptoms were noticed. Conclusions This seems to be the first report to connect traumatic intracerebral hemorrhage with a chiropractic activator therapy.

Effectiveness of chiropractic manipulation versus sham manipulation on recurrent headaches in children aged 7–14 years, Protocol for a randomized clinical trial

Abstract Background Headache is one of the most common pain signs in childhood, and it has a negative effect on many aspects of the lives of children, both short-term and long-term. This paper details the protocol used in a two-armed random superiority clinical trial aimed at investigating the benefits of chiropractic manipulation versus sham manipulation in the treatment of persistent headache in children aged 7 to 13. There will be 100 children in each arm, and they will receive weekly text messages four weeks before and during a four-month recovery period. As the difference in mean values between the two treatment arms is expected to show, intervention effects will be determined, according to Cohen'u2019s effect size and numbers needed to treat. If it is possible to produce safe headache relief in children, a life course of recurring problems could be changed with potential positive effects for both individuals and society.

Self-reported recognition of undiagnosed life threatening conditions in chiropractic practice: a random survey

Abstract Background The aim of this study was to determine the type and frequency of previously undiagnosed life threatening diseases that were first recognized by chiropractic physicians. Doctors of Chiropractic in the United States were randomly selected from a list of 57878 people. Respondents were asked to state the number of cases from the list where they were the first physician to note the disorder during their employment careers. Based on the responding doctors' reports, the occurrence of a previously undiagnosed LTC can be expected to present to the chiropractic physician every 2. 5 years. Conclusion According to this report, chiropractic physicians reported finding undiagnosed LTCu2019s in the normal course of practice. An increasing degree of education and practice life has raised concerns and stress on the recognition of LTC.

Prevalence of pain-free weeks in chiropractic subjects with low back pain - a longitudinal study using data gathered with text messages

Abstract Introduction The use of automated text messages has made it possible to identify various types of low back pain, and it has been found that pain management is not universal, and that complete recovery is extremely rare. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of pain-free weeks and pain-free weeks in patients of non-specific LBP treated by chiropractors and researchers with pain-free LBP treatment by chiropractors, and to compare subjects from two different countries in these aspects. For each individual, the number of weeks in a row without having any LBP at all, as well as the maximum number of zero weeks in a row was determined. Conclusion It was unusual that chiropractic patients treated for non-specific LBP for a week at no LBP at all over 18 weeks. Hence, even in a primary care setting, recovery in the sense that patients become completely painless is rare.

Guideline-concordant utilization of magnetic resonance imaging in adults receiving chiropractic manipulative therapy vs other care for radicular low back pain: a retrospective cohort study

Background of Lumbar magnetic resonance imaging Lumbar magnetic resonance imaging is often done early in the course of care, but it can be discordant with recommendations for non-serious low back pain. Adults receiving chiropractic manipulative therapy for an incident radicular low back pain would have reduced the odds of early LMRI over 6-weeksu2019 follow-up compared to others receiving other services. About performance After matching, there were 12,353 patients per cohort, with a small but statistically significant decrease in the odds of early LMRI in the CSMT relative to other care cohorts over the 6-weeksu2019 sequel. Over 6-months --u2019 and 1-years-u2019's sequel show there was a modest but statistically significant increase in the likelihood of LMRI in patients in the CSMT relative to the other care cohort. Patients receiving CSMT for newly diagnosed rLBP are less likely to have early LMRI than those receiving conventional medical care, according to these results.

A Case of Brachioradial Pruritus Treated with Chiropractic and Acupuncture

This case report explores the management of brachioredial pruritus in a 57-year-old white male veteran of chiropractic and acupuncture. Patient presented with findings consistent with a diagnosis of BRP to include sharp pain, burning, and itching at the bilateral upper extremities of the C5 and C6 dermatomes with acquired excoriations in the affected regions. Mild degenerative change at the C4-C5 and C5-u2013C6 levels, as well as a postural inspection revealed an anterior head carriage with forward-rounded shoulders, according to plain film radiographs. BRP's most common etiology is cervical spine disease, according to a study. BRP treatment options targeting cervical spinal disease are limited case reports and retrospective reviews in the literature. This case report examines a patient with BRP and confounding cervical spine disease who was treated with chiropractic and acupuncture, who was relieved of his symptoms after returning to normal life.
