Combining Pain Therapy with Lifestyle: The Role of Personalized Nutrition and Nutritional Supplements

Chiro.Org Blog: The FYD workshop focused on the role of personalized nutrition and nutraceuticals, by considering how they might be helpful in the management of chronic pain, as well as their physiological features (such as body mass and microbiome) and pathological ones (such as cancer). We primarily focused on soy, curcumin, and omega-3 fatty acids, oleuropein and bergamot polyphenols. Although we have presented a considerable body of relevant literature in our review, additional investigations are needed to determine exactly which dietary recommendations and supplements are suitable in the clinical pain setting and how they might help patients by improving pain relief, functionality, and QoL according to a broader multidisciplinary therapeutic approach.

Interprofessional Collaboration in Research, Education, and Clinical Practice

Chiro.Org Blog: When discussing collaboration, the key issues include putting the community or client first, the organization second, oneself last, and prejudices aside. Shortages in primary care providers and the challenges of managing chronic, complex diseases, such as musculoskeletal problems, are excellent opportunities for the health professions to bring unique skills to collaborative environments. Times are changing, silos are falling, national health burdens are being shared, and it is going to take much more than a single practitioner or paradigm to solve the serious health care issues confronting humanity today and in the future. Through collaboration, we can work together for a better future. […]

The Swiss Master in Chiropractic Medicine Curriculum: Preparing Graduates to Work Together With Medicine to Improve Patient Care

Chiro.Org Blog: The MChiroMed program represents a unique spiral curriculum for chiropractic medicine embedded within 4 years of medical curriculum at a top medical university and housed at the musculoskeletal department of a university hospital. The advantages of the program include integration of the best clinical knowledge and skills from medical and chiropractic education and practice. Small student cohorts facilitate teacher–student interaction and supervision and the implementation of higher-order examinations and tests with timely student feedback. Early patient contact and development of clinical skills integrate theory and practice and, in particular, the preclinical and clinical sciences. A significant advantage of the program is the final clinical year, during which UAs go through a variety of hospital department clinical rotations and gain experience in treating and managing patients in a busy and successful chiropractic outpatient teaching clinic at the musculoskeletal hospital.

Is EBM Damaging the Social Conscience of Chiropractic?

Chiro.Org Blog: OBJECTIVE: To explore whether an observed schism occurring within chiropractic education, where a minority of institutions are minimising the major premise of the discipline and replacing it with an emphasis on only the science or literature component of the evidence-based triad, has any potential impact on the quality of care provided particularly within the charitable context.
