Health care organizations adopting medical and chiropractic collaboration can tailor this general model to their specific setting to support implementation. […]

Manipulation of Dysfunctional Spinal Joints Affects Sensorimotor Integration in the Prefrontal Cortex

Chiro.Org Blog: This study resulted in two major findings. Firstly, this study reproduced previous findings of SEPs studies that have shown that adjusting dysfunctional spinal segments alters early sensorimotor integration (SMI) of input from the upper limb (as evidenced with a decrease in N30 SEP complex amplitudes). [3, 6, 21] The second major finding of this study was that we were able to show, using dipole source localization, that this change in SMI that occurs after spinal manipulation predominantly happens in the prefrontal cortex.

Metabolic Syndrome Components Are Associated with Intervertebral Disc Degeneration

Chiro.Org Blog: Metabolic Syndrome (MS) components were significantly associated with thoracic intervertebral disc degeneration (DD). Furthermore, accumulation of MS components significantly increased the odds ratio for thoracic DD. These findings support the need for further studies of the effects of metabolic abnormality on disc degeneration. […]

Discussion Paper: Evidence-Based Practice and Chiropractic

Chiro.Org Blog: Evidence based medicine is thought by some to have had its day. The concept of best practice seems embedded within chiropractic education. Whether they appreciate it or not, most chiropractors practice a rich form of evidence based practice into which they inject their experience as a chiropractor and the characteristics including preferences of the patient.

Cervical Spine Disorders and its Association with Tinnitus: The “Triple” Hypothesis

Chiro.Org Blog: Conceivably, cervical spine disorders could trigger a somatosensory pathway-induced disinhibition of dorsal cochlear nucleus (DCN) activity in the auditory pathway; furthermore, CSD can cause inner ear blood impairment induced by vertebral arteries hemodynamic alterations and trigeminal irritation. […]

Impact of Spinal Manipulation on Cortical Drive to Upper and Lower Limb Muscles

Chiro.Org Blog: Spinal manipulation may therefore be indicated for the patients who have lost tonus of their muscle and/or are recovering from muscle degrading dysfunctions such as stroke or orthopaedic operations and/or may also be of interest to sports performers. […]
