OBJECTIVE: To measure the cross-informant variant of pediatric quality of life (QoL) based on self-reports and parent proxy measures. METHODS: A secondary analysis of baseline data obtained from two independent studies measuring the QoL based on the pediatric PROMIS-25 self-report and the PROMIS parent-proxy items banks. A scoring manual associated raw scores to a T score metric (mean = 50; SD = 10). Reliability of QoL ratings utilized the ICC while comparison of mean T Scores utilized the unpaired t-test...

METHODS: Data was sourced from Palmer's original work, published between 1895 and 1914. A literature search from 1980 to 2016 was also performed on the online databases CINHAL, PubMed and Scopus with key terms including 'tone', 'chiropractic', 'Palmer', 'vitalism', 'health', 'homeostasis', 'holism' and 'wellness'...

BACKGROUND: Low back pain (LBP) is a complex health care issue that often involves multiple providers across various care settings. Health information technology (HIT) holds promise to improve care delivery by providing infrastructure for communication, clinical documentation, and management of patient data. Standardized terminology is essential for interoperability and enables evaluation of clinical data generated by documentation in an electronic health record (EHR). OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the feasibility of mapping evidence-based practice for conservative management of low back pain to the Omaha System and foster inter-professional communication and collaboration among diverse practitioners and patients...

While in some jurisdictions chiropractic is fully integrated in public and insurance funded health care systems, in others it is outside and considered as complementary or alternative health care. There is a paucity of data and rigorous scientific studies regarding most aspects of chiropractic practice although research activity has been increasing in recent years. We call for papers for a thematic series in Chiropractic and Manual Therapies that can help define chiropractic better to stakeholders inside and outside the profession under the theme What is Chiropractic?...

Objective: The purpose of this report was to describe the clinical presentation and case management of 2 children with congenital torticollis. Clinical Features: Two male children (ages 6 and 10 years) presented to a chiropractic clinic with a history of congenital torticollis. They showed signs and symptoms of postural deficiency and developmental delay: posterior plagiocephaly, facial scoliosis, head tilt, compensatory thoracic scoliosis, decreased range of motion in the cervical spine, palpable decreased segmental motion of the upper cervical spine, and an age-related delay in throwing and catching a ball and in one-leg standing...

Objective: The purpose of this case report is to describe the conservative management of 2 cases of acquired torticollis in children under 3 years of age. Clinical Features: Both patients awoke with painful, stiff, twisted necks the day after play in a bouncy house. Range of motion was limited, and hypertonic muscles were palpated. Their neurologic and physical evaluation was consistent with a diagnosis of acquired torticollis of musculoskeletal origin. Intervention and Outcomes: Both children were treated with chiropractic care that consisted of light myofascial release, use of an Activator instrument, and home stretching...

Objective: The purpose of this case report is to describe the diagnostic imaging features of redundant nerve roots caused by chronic lumbar degenerative canal stenosis (CLDCS). Clinical Features: A 56-year-old male presented with severe low back pain. He experienced pain during minimal active lumbar range of motion. The patient demonstrated weakness of the right iliopsoas and hypoesthesia of the L-2 dermatome. A working diagnosis of CLDCS was established. The patient's worsening severe low back pain warranted magnetic resonance imaging of the lumbar spine, which was performed for further evaluation...

Objective: The purpose of this report is to describe the role of on-site chiropractic care in one corporate environment. Methods: A part-time chiropractic practice that provides services to a single company on site, 1 day per week, is described. Most care is oriented toward "wellness," is paid for by the employer, and is limited only by the chiropractor's few weekly hours of on-site availability. With approval from the company, the authors conducted an absenteeism analysis after obtaining ethics approval and consent from employee-patients who received care between 2012 and 2014...

BACKGROUND: Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is becoming more widely used in the community however there are differences in knowledge and attitudes among and within the various health professions. Chiropractic and nursing students represent a future generation of two health profession groups who may have differing views on CAM. The objectives of this study were to investigate the knowledge, attitudes and beliefs of nursing and chiropractic students about CAM. To investigate the factors that influence their attitudes and beliefs and their likelihood of recommending CAM; and to compare the findings between nursing and chiropractic students to determine similarities and differences...

OBJECTIVE: To observe the effect of chiropractics on intervertebral disk extracell matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-1, MMP-3, MMP-13, cellular collagen type Ⅱ (COL-Ⅱ), tissue inhibitor 1 of metalloproteinase (TIMP-1) and extracellular matrix (ECM) in the rats with cervical spondylosis, so as to explore its mechanism underlying improvement of cervical spondylosis. METHODS: A total of 40 SD rats were randomized into a sham group, a model group, a chiropractics group and a mobic group, 8 rats in each one...

OBJECTIVES: Surveys of military personnel indicate substantial use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) that possibly exceeds use in the general U.S. POPULATION: Although military treatment facilities (MTFs) are known to offer CAM, surveys do not indicate where service members receive this care. This study offers a comprehensive system-wide accounting of the types of CAM offered across the military health system (MHS), the conditions for which it is used, and its level of use...

PURPOSE: Chiropractic care is popular for low back pain, but may increase the risk for acute lumbar disc herniation (LDH). Low back pain is a common early (prodromal) symptom of LDH and commonly precedes LDH diagnosis. Our objective was to investigate the association between chiropractic care and acute LDH with early surgical intervention, and contrast this with the association between primary care physician (PCP) care and acute LDH with early surgery. METHODS: Using a self-controlled case series design and population-based healthcare databases in Ontario, Canada, we investigated all adults with acute LDH requiring emergency department (ED) visit and early surgical intervention from April 1994 to December 2004...

BACKGROUND: Low back pain is a debilitating condition for older adults, who may seek healthcare from multiple providers. Few studies have evaluated impacts of different healthcare delivery models on back pain outcomes in this population. The purpose of this study was to compare clinical outcomes of older adults receiving back pain treatment under 3 professional practice models that included primary medical care with or without chiropractic care. METHODS: We conducted a pilot randomized controlled trial with 131 community-dwelling, ambulatory older adults with subacute or chronic low back pain...

OBJECTIVES: The Australian Chiropractic Research Network (ACORN) practice-based research network (PBRN) cohort was established to provide sustainable infrastructure necessary to address lack of rigorous investigation and to bridge the research-practice gap focused on chiropractic care for future years. This paper presents the profile of chiropractors recruited to the ACORN PBRN, a nationally representative sample of chiropractors working in Australia. DESIGN: Cross-sectional analysis of baseline data from a cohort study of chiropractors in Australia...
