Maigne Syndrome: The #1 Overlooked LBP Diagnosis?

Maigne Syndrome: The #1 Overlooked LBP Diagnosis?

Maigne syndrome and cluneal neuropathy are commonly overlooked causes of pain in the lumbosacral region, iliac crest, and buttock. (1-3) In fact, the pair are causative or contributory in up to 40% of LBP cases. (5,40,41) And that prospect increases as symptoms extend over the posterior iliac crest. (2)

Maigne syndrome typically results from irritation of a thoracolumbar dorsal ramus. (3) Facet joint dysfunction, degeneration, and instability are common culprits. Maigne syndrome is particularly elusive because the anatomical site of origin is often asymptomatic. (3)

This blog will cover the essentials of management, including a 5-minute video tutorial detailing the top assessments, treatments, and exercises, plus our top 10 clinical pearls.

Chronic Pain Neuroscience

Chronic Pain Neuroscience

Traditional chiropractic training has primarily focused on the mechanical aspects of pathology. Evidence-based chiropractors routinely seek to answer questions like:

• Which anatomical tissue is irritated?
• What habits and postures caused or perpetuated the dysfunction?
• What physical treatments and recommendations are most appropriate?

While mechanically-based assessment is essential, sometimes examining the non-mechanical issues is equally important. Many experts believe that biopsychosocial aspects of pain, particularly chronic pain, will become significantly higher areas of focus for neuromusculoskeletal providers.

This blog includes three valuable patient education tools that you can download, plus a video interview with Dr. Anthony Nicholson – a practicing chiropractic clinician and leading expert on chronic pain neuroscience.

Patient Reactivation: 5 Steps for a Successful Campaign

Patient Reactivation: 5 Steps for a Successful Campaign

The pandemic has whipped most everyone’s overbooked calendar into something much more manageable. That wouldn’t sound so bad had it not hit our chiropractic patient appointment schedule equally hard with canceled appointments and missed visits. But as society returns to a functional state, chiropractors will seek to prudently fully re-open their practices and refill their appointment books.

Re-activations will be a crucial component of our return to meaningful production. This blog will answer the question: How to start patient recalls & reactivate.

Check it out as we cover the essentials of effective patient recall and patient re-activation programs, including an interview outlining the specific steps to make that happen, along with a customizable template for your reactivation message.
