Temporal Effect of Repeated Spinal Manipulation on Mortality Ratio : A Case Report

  title={Temporal Effect of Repeated Spinal Manipulation on Mortality Ratio : A Case Report},
  author={Chad E. Cook and Joshua A. Cleland and Paul E Mintken},
Background: A number of new interventions have recently influenced mortality, once considered an incurable disease. Manual therapy, specifically manipulation, has the potential to be an influential intervention. Study Design: This case report was created using CARE guidelines. A case report is a narrative that describes, for medical, scientific, or educational purposes, a medical problem experienced by one or more patients. In this example, a patient was seen for one visit, followed by a…

Thoughts on Publishing Survey - how can we improve scientific publishing?
The goal of thoughts on publishing survey (TOPS) is to measure satisfaction levels of the current publishing model, propose an alternative Publishing model, obtain feedback on the new model, and learn more about quality scientific articles and peer review.


The excess morbidity and mortality of emergency general surgery
The excess morbidity and mortality of EGS are not fully explained by preoperative risk factors, making EGS an excellent target for quality improvement projects.
Short- and long-term clinical outcomes following a standardized protocol of orthopedic manual physical therapy and exercise in individuals with osteoarthritis of the hip: a case series
Improved outcomes observed following a pre-selected, standardized treatment protocol were similar to those observed in previous studies involving impairment-based manual therapy and therapeutic exercise for hip OA.
The Scholarly Influence of Orthopaedic Research According to Conventional and Alternative Metrics: A Systematic Review
Online activity in orthopaedics is dominated by activity on Twitter and Facebook and is associated with increasing time since publication, journal impact factor, and author h-index values, and less risk of bias.
Data interpretation in analgesic clinical trials with statistically nonsignificant primary analyses: an ACTTION systematic review.
Association Between Utilization of Chiropractic Services for Treatment of Low Back Pain and Risk of Adverse Drug Events
A comparison of a modified Oswestry Low Back Pain Disability Questionnaire and the Quebec Back Pain Disability Scale.
The validity of a global rating of change as a reflection of meaningful change in patient status was supported by the stability of the Physical Impairment Index across the study period in patients defined as stable by the global rating and by the decrease in physical impairment across thestudy period.
Relationship Between Hip Muscle Imbalance and Occurrence of Low Back Pain in Collegiate Athletes: A Prospective Study
Logistic regression analysis indicated that for female athletes, the percentage difference between the right and left hip extensors was predictive of whether treatment for LBP was required over the ensuing year, adding validity to the concept of hip muscle imbalance being associated with LBP occurrence in female athletes.
Reporting and interpretation of randomized controlled trials with statistically nonsignificant results for primary outcomes.
The reporting and interpretation of findings was frequently inconsistent with the results and the nature and frequency of distorted presentation or "spin" was identified in published reports of randomized controlled trials with statistically nonsignificant results for primary outcomes.
Prevalence of gluteus medius weakness in people with chronic low back pain compared to healthy controls
Hierarchical linear regression demonstrated that gluteus medius weakness, low back regional tenderness, and male sex were predictive of LBP in this sample.
The CARE Guidelines: Consensus-based Clinical Case Report Guideline Development
The implementation of the CARE (CAse REport) guidelines by medical journals will improve the completeness and transparency of published case reports and that the systematic aggregation of information from case reports will inform clinical study design, provide early signals of effectiveness and harms, and improve healthcare delivery.
