Diversity of the chiropractic profession in Canada: A cross-sectional survey of Canadian Chiropractic Association Members

Divers provide the foundation for culturally competent care delivery at the provider level, and is therefore vital in the quest for a culturally congruent model of chiropractic care. Methods The Canadian Chiropractic Association's registered members were encouraged to participate in a web-based survey between May and June 2021. Seventy percent of chiropractors in our survey reported with Canadian ancestry and 29 percent with European ancestry, with 29 percent reporting European ancestry and 29 percent having European ancestry. The most significant discrepancy between the Canadian population and our study was in the proportion of Black and Indigenous chiropractors. chiropractors with Canadian roots were overrepresented in our survey compared to others, particularly those with North American Indigenous and South American roots, as well as Latin American ancestry. Overall, there is little racial and ethnic diversity in the chiropractic profession compared to the Canadian population, with Black and Indigenous peoples underrepresented.

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 often treat MSK disorders, there is no real-world evidence on the topic of health care quality 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 track MSK pain prevalence and contribute to healthcare quality improvement. The primary objectives of this research were to outline the design of an MSK-focused PBRN within the Swiss chiropractic context, as well as the research that was conducted within the PBRN-an observational prospective patient cohort pilot study. A prospective chiropractic cohort pilot study will be recruited randomly by Phase II patients aged 18 years or older with MSK pain from community-based chiropractic clinics participating in the PBRN. The pre-registration phase of the study of Phase I-Swiss chiropractic cohorts was conducted, according to the study by the Swiss chiropractic cohort.

Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA) in 16 Patients Following COVID-19 Vaccination Who Presented to Chiropractic, Orthopedic, and Physiotherapy Clinics in Hong Kong During 2021.

BACKGROUND When an intramuscular deltoid injection is administered into the shoulder joint, there is a risk of a vaccine related shoulder injury. SIRVA patients with Coronavirus 2019 vaccination who went to chiropractic, orthopedic, and physiotherapy clinics in Hong Kong between January 1, 2021 and January 1, 2022 were among the patients with this observational research. Adults aged u226518 with new-onset shoulder pain and imaging-confirmed shoulder pathology were retrospectively identified from 35 clinics. SIRVA patients were identified with shoulder pain, 16 SIRVA cases were identified; of patients were diagnosed with Pfizer-BionTech vaccine, while others were given Sinovac-CoronaVac. Mean pain was reduced to 2. 4 percent at 3. 8 percent at 3-month follow-up; both patients had normal shoulder ROM; at 3-month follow-up, mean pain was reduced to 2. 4 percent; all patients had normal shoulder ROM. It is important that physicians be aware of SIRVA as a source of new shoulder pains, and they should notify the patient about their latest vaccinations, including COVID-19.

Convergent and Discriminative Validity of the PROMIS Physical Function 4 Questionnaire for Assessing Pain-Related Disability in Low Back Pain Patients Seeking Chiropractic Care.

Objective: To determine construct validity by investigating the convergent and discriminative validity of the PROMIS-PF4 questionnaire in low back pain patients seeking chiropractic care in Denmark. The PROMIS Physical Function 4a questionnaire is limited to four items and may not be more useful for clinical use. Patients with LBP seeking chiropractic care from chiropractors in Denmark completed the PROMIS-PF4, RMDQ, Targeted Treatment Back screening system, and the Numeric Pain Rating Scale in advance of their first appointment with the chiropractor. Among 356 patients, the PROMIS-PF4 questionnaire had high convergent reliability with the RMDQ and moderate convergent validity with the NPRS, with strong convergent validity with the RMDQ and moderate convergent validity with the NPRS. Conclusion The PROMIS-PF4 has a stronger correlation with the RMDQ and at a higher risk of continuing disability among patients with pain-related disability and at a higher risk of persisting disability, but not for determining pain severity or persistent disability.
