Beliefs About Back Pain..

Date: July 25, 2019 | Time: 12:00pm

Since the late 1980s, researchers have embraced the biopsychosocial model (BPS) to understand both the causative and prognostic factors associated with neuromusculoskeletal disorders, which includes back pain. In order to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients with back pain, it's important to understand the role that factors outside of the biomechanical injury model play in both the injury and recovery processes. Unfortunately, there's a lot of misinformation out there that can be detrimental to the patient. In one study that.... <view entire article>





Chiropractic Treatment for Wry Neck..

Date: July 24, 2019 | Time: 12:00pm

Wry neck, also known as torticollis, is a painful condition in which the top of the head usually tilts to one side while the chin rotates to the opposite side. Torticollis can have several causes from infection (cold, flu, or otitis media, for example) to sleeping in a draft; however, the cause is usually unknown (idiopathic). In a typical case, torticollis may resolve itself within four to six weeks, but with chiropractic care, cervical function can return to a more normal.... <view entire article>





Chiropractic Management of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome..

Date: July 23, 2019 | Time: 12:00pm

When someone is diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), there seems to be an automatic assumption that surgery is imminent or at least inevitable. However, treatment guidelines for CTS that are intended to be followed by ALL healthcare professionals ALWAYS recommend an initial course of non-surgical treatment, NOT jumping directly to surgery. Unfortunately, evidence-based treatment guidelines are not always followed, and many patients are not given an option for anything other than surgery. The following is an excerpt from a 2017.... <view entire article>





Osteoarthritis of the Shoulder..

Date: July 22, 2019 | Time: 12:00pm

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis and is caused when the smooth cartilage surface of an articulating/moving joint wears away until there is bone-on-bone contact that results in both loss of movement and pain. Although OA most commonly affects the joints under the greatest load (the hips and the knees), it can occur in any moving joint, including those that make up the shoulder. Because cartilage lacks a direct blood supply, it relies on a process called diffusion.... <view entire article>





Whiplash and Tinnitus..

Date: July 21, 2019 | Time: 12:00pm

While tinnitus is commonly associated with a ringing sound in the ears, it can also involve a buzzing, hissing, or whistling noise. The sound can be intermittent or constant and can change in volume. The noise often intensifies in a quiet room when background noise is absent, such as at night, which can interfere with sleep. Approximately 50 million adults in the United States are affected by tinnitus, and up to 90% of people with tinnitus have some degree of.... <view entire article>





Walking Backward Boosts Memory..

Date: July 20, 2019 | Time: 12:00pm

We previously discussed how walking backward can strengthen the low back extensor muscles, which can aid in both the treatment and prevention of back pain. According to a study published in the January 2019 issue of the journal Cognition, walking backward (or even watching a video simulating backward motion) may also improve one's memory. The study involved 114 people who participated in experiments focused on recalling images, word lists, and even details from a crime scene. Before the recall stage of.... <view entire article>
