Smarty pants: Wearable tech helps prevent low-back pain

TV infomercials offer a world of potential solutions for back pain, but most of them have at least one of three problems – they're unproven, unworkable or just plain unattractive. A team of Vanderbilt University engineers in Nashville, Tenn., is changing that with a design that combines the science of biomechanics and advances in wearable tech to create a smart, mechanized undergarment.

Clinic files: Essentials of good record-keeping

Correcting neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction is what we do – and we do it really well. We know that we can provide the best kind of care for injuries like this, but the only existing proof of our efficacy will be found inside the patient’s file. If we don’t keep good notes, no one else can know just how good we are at what we do. Record keeping is an asset, not a punishment.

How chiropractors can make money in sports

While many chiropractors volunteer their time and skills caring for athletes with little to no monetary compensation, Dr. Anthony Lombardi outlines some things chiropractors can do to turn this into an opportunity to build your practice.

WEBINAR: Working with the back-pain client, with Back Mechanic author and University of Waterloo Professor Emeritus Stuart McGill

This one-hour webinar will describe an evidence-based process of interpreting patient history followed by “pain provocation” assessment to isolate the mechanism that causes back pain. Eliminating the pain-causing mechanism is the first step. Exercise prescription is the second step, based on the assessment, and involves a blend of strategic mobility and stability. These variables together with movement patterns assist in winding down pain sensitivity. Then, the program shifts to build the foundation for a pain-free body using the “knowledge of mechanism”.

About the Speaker: Stuart McGill is a “University Professor Emeritus” of spine biomechanics, University of Waterloo. His advice is often sought by governments, corporations, legal experts and elite athletes and teams from around the world. Difficult back cases are regularly referred to him for consultation.
