Subacromial impingement (SAI) is a common injury in sporting activities that require overhead motions, especially among pitchers, quarterbacks, and swimmers. Not everyone responds to treatment to the same degree, and a new study that reviewed two specific cases may offer a possible reason: the neck. One of the two cases involved a high school football quarterback and the other a collegiate swimmer. Both participants presented with signs and symptoms of subacromial impingement with minimal neck complaints and few clinical signs that.... <view entire article>





How Does Chiropractic Help Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?..

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) occurs when pressure is placed on the median nerve as it passes through bones and ligaments of the wrist in order to innervate a portion of the hand. This pressure can be cause by compression of the carpal tunnel due to mechanical injury or when other tissues near the median nerve become inflamed, either from disease or overuse. When it comes to treating a patient with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), what separates chiropractic care from standard medical.... <view entire article>

Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a pathological hip condition found in 17% of the population, and it's caused by abnormal contact between the ball of hip and the socket. To be more precise, it's the head-neck junction that impinges against the rim of the acetabulum. There are three types of FAI: cam, pincer, or a combination of the two. The cam deformity (also called "pistol-grip") is from too much bone at the head-neck junction and is found in 65-75% of FAIs.... <view entire article>





Neck Posture BEFORE a Car Wreck - Is It Important?..

Date: February 24, 2019 | Time: 12:00pm

Abnormal postures of the neck-straight and reversed (kyphotic) curves, for example-are commonly encountered after an individual has experienced a motor vehicle collision (MVC). Many studies discuss the mechanism of injury during a rear-impact MVC that result in a straight or kyphotic curve, but few have considered the importance of this abnormal posture being present BEFORE the MVC and the role that plays regarding the degree of the resulting injury. A group of researchers looked at this very issue and compared what.... <view entire article>





Can Brain Exercises Help Those with ADHD?..

Date: February 22, 2019 | Time: 12:00pm

For many individuals-especially those with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and attention-deficit disorder (ADD)-staying "on task" can be a challenge. Though medications are commonly used as a first line treatment for these conditions, research has shown the benefits may only last for a few years. University of California, Irvine scientist Dr. James M. Swanson even reports that pharmacological interventions for ADHD offer no lasting, long-term benefits. Because of this, researchers have been on the lookout for non-drug treatments to improve mindfulness, and.... <view entire article>
