Review Our Extensive LINKS Section

Most Links Pages point at materials on someone else's website.
Chiro.Org's LINKS Section is different !

As early as 1997, the LINKS was collecting abstracts and Full-text articles onto our own server. Over the years, most of those materials have coalesced into topical pages, which now gather related materials into one convenient reference location.

Our Low Back Pain Page and the Whiplash page are just 2 examples.

Here are some of our newest topical additions: The LINKS Section can be found up top, on the tan toolbar.

    The Medicare Section
    • The Medicare Section recently added a whole series of research articles explaining on how chiropractic care reduces the cost, and improved the health outcomes in Medicare patients.

      • A new JMPT study shows that chiropractic care can reduce the reliance on Opioid Use in younger Medicare beneficiaries.

      • Another new JMPT study details how chiropractic care improves outcomes and reduces health care costs for older Medicare patients with Chronic Low Back Pain.
    The MEDICARE Section can be found on the TOOLS drop-down.

    The Acupuncture Section
    • A newly acquired FULL TEXT article titled The Neuroimmune Basis of Anti-inflammatory Acupuncture proposes that the anti-inflammatory power of acupuncture may be more successful for the treatment of a number of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases than standard medical management.

    • In a second study, reviewing who uses acupuncture, and for what purpose, in a group of 9408 acupuncture patients, 74% of patients were female. The most common main complaint reported was musculo-skeletal (38%), followed by psychological (11%), general (9%), neurological (8%) and gynaecological/obstetric (8%), while 5% of patients were seeking treatment for their general well-being. Read about this in the Articles section. Learn more about this ancient healing technique.

    • This section links to acupuncture journals, information websites, and also contains numerous research articles.
    The ACUPUNCTURE Section can be found on the CAM drop-down.

    The Radiology Section
    • MRI Spine Protocols First, as discussed previously, general radiologists have a 42.2% error rate as reported by Lurie, Doman, Spratt, Tosteson, and Weinstein (2009), which makes it virtually imperitive that we, as practitioners, must take control of a critical component in diagnosing our patients.

    • Mechanical low back pain is a common indication for Nuclear Medicine imaging. Single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) allows accurate diagnosis and anatomic localisation of osteoblastic and osteolytic lesions in 3D imaging. We present a clinical case of a patient referred for evaluation of chronic lower back pain with no history of trauma, spinal surgery, or cancer.

    • The AMA's Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairments uses George's Line to rate neck impairments. A moderate (3.5 mm) break in George's Line on the flexion and extension lateral X-ray films is a permanent impairment, equivalent to a post-surgical fusion of two cervical vertebra. Some chiropractors see small anterolisthesis and/or retrolisthesis on the films and fail to appreciate its true significance.

    • You may also enjoy taking the Radiology QUIZ.
