A Chiro.Org Editorial


Every Blog post is an announcement of new material that was just added to one of our many Sections.

I have been compiling (and archiving) peer-reviewed articles since early 1996, and to date we have thousands of Abstracts, and many hundreds of Full-Text articles on a wide variety of subjects.

When enough material, relating to a particular topic was collected, it was gathered into a new Topical Page in one of our many Sections.

Each Topical page is located in the Section most associated with that topic.
Thus, our Attention Deficit Page is located (is a part of) our Pediatrics Section   You get the idea.

Almost ALL of our Sections contain some, or many Topical collections. The LINKS Section is the most extreme example, because it contains 84 different topical pages.

All of the following are “active” Sections that are constantly adding new (and important) materials:

Acupuncture
Alternative Healing Abstracts
Case Studies
Chiropractic Assistants
Chiropractic Research
Chronic Neck Pain
Conditions That Respond Well
Cost-Effectiveness of Chiropractic
Documentation
Global Burden of Disease
Headache and Chiropractic
Initial Provider/First Contact and Chiropractic
The LINKS
Low Back Pain and Chiropractic
Medicare Info
Non-pharmacologic Therapy and Chiropractic
Nutrition
Pediatrics
Radiology
The SEARCH Section
Stroke and Chiropractic
What is the Chiropractic Subluxation?
Whiplash and Chiropractic

These other Sections are “archival” in nature, and contain valuable tools:Chiropractic History
ChiroZine
Free Images
New DC’s
Office Forms
R.C. Schafer’s Rehab Monographs
The Wilk Antitrust Lawsuit

Objective:   The purpose of this report is to describe the outcomes of chiropractic care for a patient after surgery for cauda equina syndrome.

Clinical features:   Following surgery for cauda equina syndrome caused by a herniated lumbar disc at L5/S1, a 28-year old woman presented for chiropractic care with an 18-month history of lower back pain. She had bilateral L5 and S1 dermatome pain and paraesthesia; saddle

Intervention and outcome:   The patient received a variety of chiropractic manipulative techniques including cervical and thoracic spine manipulation, instrumented adjustments to the lumbar spine, and drop technique to the sacroiliac joints. Trigger point therapy was performed on the gluteus medius, quadratus lumborum, and piriformis muscles bilaterally. After 12 months, the patient reported a reduction in lower back and radicular leg pain, was able to reduce her use of opioid medications, and experienced improved lower limb function following chiropractic care.

Conclusion:   The patient responded favorably to a course of chiropractic care for symptoms remaining after surgery for cauda equina syndrome.

Physiological Responses Induced by Manual Therapy in Animal Models: A Scoping Review

Physiological Responses Induced by Manual Therapy in Animal Models: A Scoping Review

Background:   Physiological responses related to manual therapy (MT) treatment have been investigated over decades using various animal models. However, these studies have not been compiled and their collective findings appraised. The purpose of this scoping review was to assess current scientific knowledge on the physiological responses related to MT and/or simulated MT procedures in animal models so as to act as a resource to better inform future mechanistic and clinical research incorporating these therapeutic interventions

Methods:   PubMed, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), Cochrane, Embase, and Index of Chiropractic Literature (ICL) were searched from database inception to August 2019. Eligible studies were:

(a)   published in English;
(b)   non-cadaveric animal-based;
(c)   original data studies;
(d)   included a form of MT or simulated MT as treatment;
(e)   included quantification of at least one delivery parameter of MT treatment;
(f)   quantification of at least one physiological measure that could potentially contribute to therapeutic mechanisms of action of the MT.

MT studies were categorized according to three main intervention types:

The COMMENTS Section is Back!

The Chiro.Org Blog


In the last 7 years, we have relocated to a new (better) server 4 different times.

Even though we moved all the Blog files over, WordPress automatically snaps back to its default (original) settings, so we had to fuss for a few days to get everything to look the way we previously designed it to appear.

UNFORTUNATELY, the one thing we missed (since it’s the one thing we never use) was the COMMENTS Section at the bottom of every full post. Evidently you always have to re-install the Comments section as well. Grrr!

The “Front Page” displays a portion of every post. To see the Full post, you either click the Title, or the Read More link at the bottom.

Below the full post is the COMMENTS Section.

The first time you make a comment, you will have to add your Name and your E-Mail address. After that, you will always be signed in.

You can also check the box(es) to follow future comments on that post, or to ask to be notified every time a new Blog Post is published. Very convenient!

We assure you that your e-mail address will NEVER be shared with anyone.

We also apologize that we missed this in the past, because it suppressed one of our most enjoyable features, discussing current research with friends and fellow DCs.

We are pleased to return full functionality to our Blog, and hope that you too will enjoy discussing these studies with your peers.
