EFFECTS OF 12 WEEKS OF CHIROPRACTIC CAREON CENTRAL INTEGRATION OF DUAL SOMATOSENSORY INPUT IN CHRONIC PAIN PATIENTS

June 30, 2016

The purpose of this preliminary study was to assess whether the dual somatosensory evoked potential (SEP) technique is sensitive enough to measure changes in cortical intrinsic inhibitory interactions in patients with chronic neck or upper extremity pain and, if so, whether changes are associated with changes in pain scores.

ASSOCIATION OF SPINAL MANIPULATIVE THERAPY WITH CLINICAL BENEFIT AND HARM FOR ACUTE LOW BACK PAIN

April, 11, 2017

Question Is the use of spinal manipulative therapy in the management of acute (≤6 weeks) low back pain associated with improvements in pain or function?

Findings In this systematic review and meta-analysis of 26 randomized clinical trials, spinal manipulative therapy was associated with statistically significant benefits in both pain and function, of on average modest magnitude, at up to 6 weeks. Minor transient adverse events such as increased pain, muscle stiffness, and headache were reported in more than half of patients in the large case series.

Meaning Among patients with acute low back pain, spinal manipulative therapy was associated with modest improvements in pain and function and with transient minor musculoskeletal harms.

MANIPULATION OF DYSFUNCTIONAL SPINAL JOINTS AFFECTS SENSORIMOTOR INTEGRATION IN THE PREFRONTAL CORTEX

January, 28, 2016

Studies have shown decreases in N30 somatosensory evoked potential (SEP) peak amplitudes following spinal manipulation (SM) of dysfunctional segments in subclinical pain (SCP) populations. This study sought to verify these findings and to investigate underlying brain sources that may be responsible for such changes. Conclusion. A single session of spinal manipulation of dysfunctional segments in subclinical pain patients alters somatosensory processing at the cortical level, particularly within the prefrontal cortex.
