BACKGROUND: Lhermitte's sign is a nonspecific historical and exam finding that carries with it a differential diagnosis of cervical myelopathy, multiple sclerosis, intradural tumors, or other central nervous system pathology. Regardless of the suspected diagnosis, further diagnostic investigation is indicated to determine etiology of symptoms. CASE PRESENTATION: In this case, a 67-year-old male Veteran presents to a Veterans Affairs (VA) outpatient chiropractic clinic with an insidious 6-month onset of neck pain with historical description of a positive Lhermitte's sign, a single episode of bladder incontinence, and mild changes in upper extremity manual dexterity...

Although most cases of Achilles tendinitis are caused by some form of biomechanical stress, other factors may play a role in its etiology. Fluoroquinolone use is a well-known contributing factor to Achilles tendon pathology. This report describes a case of fluoroquinolone-induced Achilles tendinitis in a 77-year-old woman. Eight weeks after she presented to our office, the patient reported significant improvements after a course of care that included low level laser therapy (LLLT), activity modification and graduated exercises...

BACKGROUND: Spinal epidural lipomatosis (SEL) is a rare contributor of low back pain (LBP) that can present with or without radicular symptoms. CASE PRESENTATION: A 51-year-old and 65-year-old male presented with chronic LBP to the Veterans Affairs chiropractic clinic for a trial of care. One had a moderate degree of lumbar spinal stenosis with known SEL and the other had severe. The patient with moderate grade stenosis responded favorably with weeks of transient benefit after visits and the patient with severe grade did not find benefit with care...

We recently each completed doctoral programs where the major focus of our work was in mixed methods research. In the first part of this three-part commentary, we present an overview of mixed methods research. In the second part, we present a summary of our primary and secondary research findings from our doctoral work involving mixed methods. In a third paper, we will discuss integrating qualitative research with randomized controlled trials and how this mixed methods study design can be applied to research within the chiropractic profession...

In part 1 of this commentary, we presented an overview of mixed methods research and the rationales for using this methodology with examples from the chiropractic literature. We also introduced readers to the three core mixed methods study designs, as well as the advantages and challenges of employing a mixed methods approach. In part 2 of this series, we provide a summary of the primary and secondary findings from our doctoral work involving mixed methods research and make recommendations for improving the reporting and conduct of future chiropractic mixed methods studies...

This is the third of three papers in our series of articles on the use of mixed methods in chiropractic research. In this commentary, we discuss the mixed methods experimental (or intervention) design. This design is a complex mixed methods research design in which qualitative research is integrated with randomized controlled trials. We provide a brief overview of this study design as well as a case example from the literature to illustrate how this approach can be applied to research within the chiropractic profession...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Constance Dubant, Aurore Meugnot
Spinal manipulation learning requires intensive practice, which can cause injuries in students. Motor imagery (MI) paired with physical practice (PP) appears to be a suitable means to reduce the number of physical repetitions without decreasing skill outcomes. This study examines whether a session of MI paired with PP leads to a similar improvement in the ability to precisely produce peak forces during a thoracic manipulation as PP alone. Chiropractic students participated in a thoracic manipulation training program for five weeks...

BACKGROUND: Spinal Manipulative Therapy (SMT) benefits LBP patients, but its mechanism is not well documented. One hypothesis indicates that SMT restores interspinal movements. Ultrasound measurement (UM) of spinous process separation (SPS) assesses the intersegmental movements. METHODS: We used the test-retest reliability of UM between the L3, L4, L5, and S1 spinous processes on fifteen asymptomatic volunteers while lying prone on a chiropractic table. The participants then walked around for over 5 minutes, and ultrasound images were reperformed prone...

JOURNAL ARTICLE

BACKGROUND: Axillary-subclavian venous thrombosis (ASVT) is a type of upper extremity deep vein thrombosis (UEDVT). UEDVTs are classified as either primary or secondary depending on their etiology. Although uncommon, clinicians should be aware of the clinical presentation of UEDVT as timely diagnosis and early treatment is critical in preventing possible post-thrombotic complications. CASE PRESENTATION: We report a rare case of axillary-subclavian and internal jugular vein thrombosis in the absence of clear risk factors in a 78-year-old male weightlifter who presented to the office with two-week duration of left upper extremity pain and swelling following strenuous exercise at the gym...

A questionnaire was emailed to 144 eligible participants including Fellows and Residents of the Royal College of Chiropractic Sports Sciences (Canada) (RCCSS(C)). Fifty-two surveys were returned fully completed. Fifteen respondents completed semi-structured interviews to further examine attitudes and beliefs in sport psychology training, delivery, and referrals...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Andrew Parks, Mohsen Kazemi, David Frost, Samuel J Howarth
The Beighton Score (BS) is a tool that dichotomizes those who have generalized joint hypermobility (GJH) and those who do not. Unfortunately, the BS is often used in populations that it was not originally developed for, including athletes for screening purposes. The construct validity of the BS remains unknown in this population. This secondary analysis investigated the construct validity of the BS by comparing varsity athletes' passive shoulder and hip ranges of motion (ROMs) to their respective BS and individual forward bend tests (FBTs)...

Distal radius fractures are a common sports injury, often managed with reduction, immobilization, and rehabilitation. However, structured sport specific return to play protocols have yet to be developed, specifically within hockey. This case report reviews the various factors to consider when managing an athlete's recovery from a radius fracture, and objective measures to aid with return to play decision making when managing a hockey player.

OBJECTIVES: Previous studies have investigated the role of clinical attire in establishing patient-held perceptions of professionalism and knowledgeability across various healthcare settings. This study aimed to understand patients' preferences for chiropractic student attire. METHODS: Three hundred and twenty patients were recruited from a university chiropractic clinic and asked to complete an online questionnaire. The patients' preferences for five different attires were rated and calculated as the composite score of five domains (knowledgeable, trustworthy, caring, professional, and comfortable)...
