Mental health and lifestyle behaviors of students in a doctor of chiropractic program.

Objectives Health Professional students' mental stability and lifestyle habits can have an effect on their personal well-being as well as their clinical practice. Methods In 2019, we discovered health center files for 198 students who graduated from our DCP between 2015 and 2016, of which 69% contained Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act consent forms granting permission for file review. From each of these files, we extracted demographic and lifestyle behavior data from student self-reported at the start and end of their DCP. Between the start and end of our DCP, the percentage of students reporting anxiety or depression decreased. Conclusions At 1 DCP, this report contained data about student mental stability and lifestyle habits. Also, there could be a need for intervention studies to decrease DCP student alcohol use in the DCP.

Information literacy of matriculating chiropractic students assessed via research readiness survey.

Our goal is to determine students' information literacy needs prior to instruction by a team of faculty members and librarians in our doctor of chiropractic program clinical research literacy programs. In addition to describing students' responses to our RRS, we investigated connections between students' general results on the RRS and their previous academic degrees, as well as their self-reported capability and results on topics relating to information quality. To determine whether standard 3 scores varied based on students' self-reported ability to assess health information quality and whether there was a correlation between total RRS scores and students' previously earned degrees, we used analysis of variance to see if standard 3 scores varied by students' self-reported ability to assess health information quality and whether there was an association between total RRS scores and students' previously earned degrees. Students who reported an average ability to assess information quality had higher standard 3 scores than students who said they did not have the same abilities. Students with bachelor's degrees had higher RRS scores than students with associate's degrees.

The association between chiropractic integration in an Ontario community health centre and continued prescription opioid use for chronic non-cancer spinal pain: a sequential explanatory mixed methods study.

Background Information This information is uncertain, owing to rising evidence, access to chiropractic care may reduce the likelihood of starting an opioid prescription for spinal pain; however, the consequences of chiropractic care for patients already prescribed opioids are unclear. We undertook a sequential explanatory mixed methods research to determine the relationship between initiating chiropractic care and continued opioid use among adult patients attending an Ontario community health center and receiving opioid therapy for chronic non-cancer spinal pain. Conclusion We found that prescription opioid use among patients with chronic non-cancer spinal pain who were receiving chiropractic care was reduced than in patients who did not receive chiropractic care. To determine the effect of chiropractic care on opioid use for chronic spinal pain, randomized controlled trials are required.

Structural rehabilitation of the cervical lordosis and forward head posture: a selective review of Chiropractic BioPhysics ® case reports.

[Methods] The CBP Non-profit website, as well as PubMed and Index to Chiropractic journals, were searched for case reports/series describing the rise of cervical lordosis and increased forward head posture in the treatment of various craniocervical spinal disorders by CBP technology methods. [Results] Sixty patients were included in 41 unique manuscripts describing the changes in cervical spine alignment by CBP technique techniques. Routine radiographic imaging of the spine is recommended because it is safe and the only current practical method of testing for critical biomechanical biomarkers of sagittal spine alignment.

Low back pain service utilization and costs: association with number of visits of chiropractic manipulation, active care, manual therapy or acupuncture. A retrospective cohort study

The aim of this retrospective cohort study was to determine the correlation between the number of visits of chiropractic manipulative therapy, active care, manual therapy, or licensed acupuncturist acupuncture. Methods The unit of analysis was a national sample of non-surgical LBP patients from a single episode of non-surgical LBP during 2017-2019 was evaluated using episode of care as the unit of measurement. Dependent studies included the rate and timing of use of 14 types of health care products and total episode cost. For a single episode of non-surgical LBP, 132,199 continuously insured individuals aged 18 years and older had called 21,336 different DCs, 2,734 PTs, and 1,339 LAcs. Although visit dose variations were not significant or clinically relevant in part due to small sample sizes, each service providing 1 to three visits was correlated with the lowest risk of exposure to second- and third-line services. At any level of visit use, CMT was associated with the lowest median episode cost at each level of visit utilization. Conclusions For non-surgical LBP episodes, contact a DC, PT, or LAc was the first contact, most common form of usage, followed by the lowest exposure to second- and third-line services and lowest total episode cost.

Exploring 1st- and 2nd-year chiropractic students' willingness and attitudes toward peer physical examination.

The aim of this report was to investigate chiropractic students' views and attitudes regarding the appropriateness of peer physical examination as a teaching aid, as well as their willingness and familiarity with it. During their practical sessions, Murdoch University's first- and second-year chiropractic students were welcomed. According to our findings, the majority of students were aware of and excited to participate in peer physical examination, as well as trusting it as an integral component of their preparation and a rich learning experience. Although peer physical examination appears to be a common training tool, there are still some areas of concern that must be investigated and addressed to improve students' attitudes, perception, and comfort with this teaching method. Students' perception and attitudes towards peer physical examination could be influenced by other factors such as religious convictions.
