Running From Arthritis?

Running From Arthritis?

Abundant data is proving that running does not cause or exacerbate osteoarthritis in healthy subjects. (1-10) In fact, some studies have shown that running may help to prevent joint degeneration. (8-11) However, running does not necessarily impart the same protective benefit to the entire kinetic chain. Studies show that one-year lower extremity injury rates for distance runners may reach an astonishing 79%. (12,13) This stat is supported by our own clinical experience and the fact that very few first-time marathoners ever run again competitively.
The good news is that running-related injuries are often preventable. Check out this blog/video that will arm you with the knowledge to help your runners recover and stay injury free. As a bonus, you can download our new running infographic to share with your patients and social media followers.

Impact of Age on Elbow Injuries

Impact of Age on Elbow Injuries

An orthopedic diagnosis identifies a tissue that has failed. Patients engage in activities, play sports, pursue hobbies, develop postures, and traumatically injure themselves to end up in your office. The patient’s age can help narrow the list of potential tissue failures.

Proper diagnosis and subsequent treatment will vary based on your understanding of tissue maturation, and more specifically, growth plates. Understanding tissue injury based upon age will make you more efficient in practice and improve your clinical effectiveness. Watch this quick three-minute video about how pitching impacts the elbow differently, depending upon the patient’s age.

Top Clinical Pearls For Radicular Arm Pain

Top Clinical Pearls For Radicular Arm Pain
Patients often associate pain with muscle, tendon, or ligament injury. However, irritated NERVES may also become the primary source of pain. Tensile stretch or compression of nerves often results in symptoms. Unfortunately, radiculopathies are often the most difficult diagnoses to treat. Without quick symptomatic relief, patient compliance diminishes.

Get Ready. Change Is Coming, and It’s Going to Be Incredible.

More than 10,000 chiropractors rely on this blog for news about the latest test, treatment, finding, or concept to advance our clinical and business excellence. But this week’s blog won’t be discussing any of these topics in isolation. Instead, you’ll learn about a new highly potent tool that incorporates all of these proficiencies into one efficient system – ChiroUp Version 2.0!

So instead of dissecting a new journal article, we’ll relay something that we understand even better – how to efficiently integrate best practices for superior clinical outcomes, then market those outcomes to the people who matter.

Our team has spent the past eight months developing and coding new functionality that will make your life more comfortable. In less than two weeks, your ChiroUp account is going to look very different, but in the best way possible — Consider it a digital facelift gone right.

Here’s a summary and video preview of what you can expect:

Stop Following “Gurus” and People Running Their Business from the Seat of Their Car

Stop Following “Gurus” and People Running Their Business from the Seat of Their Car

Who or what guides your clinical decisions? Is it a particular person, technique, school of thought, or practice management expert? Influential teachers and charismatic “experts” have dominated the chiropractic landscape for a hundred years. They stand on stages to amaze the masses with their knowledge and success. They teach mindsets, techniques, philosophies, business practices, and “fail-safe” marketing schemes. Many of us envy their intelligence and perceived business success. We leave their seminars (i.e., revivals) energized, and ready to emulate them during our next patient encounter.
Each one of us needs to stop imitating other people, systems, and funnels – and start creating OUR practice. While learning evidence-based skills and techniques from others is essential; ultimately, there should only be one guru directing your care in the treatment room: research.
Check out the following video on how evidence-based chiropractors utilize proven evaluations, treatments, and patient educational pieces to guide their decision-making process.
