Written by Editor   
Monday, October 02, 2017 02:52 PM

Two multidisciplinary working groups formulated recommendations to summarize recommendations about 20 non-surgical interventions for recent onset (<12 weeks) non-specific low back pain (LBP) and lumbar radiculopathy (LR) based on two guidelines from the Danish Health Authority.

Sixteen recommendations were based on evidence, and four on consensus. Management of LBP and LR should include information about prognosis, warning signs, and advise to remain active. If treatment is needed, the guidelines suggest using patient education, different types of supervised exercise, and manual therapy. The guidelines recommend against acupuncture, routine use of imaging, targeted treatment, extraforaminal glucocorticoid injection, paracetamol, NSAIDs, and opioids.

Executive Director’s Message

October 2017 is Texas Chiropractic Health Month. That’s right … Gov. Greg Abbott signed a proclamation recognizing Texas chiropractors and the unparalleled care you provide to your patients. It shows the respect that our state’s top leader has for our profession and he acknowledges that chiropractic is a solution to the nation’s healthcare crisis.

It’s our job as a community to spread the word. So, I encourage you to do the following:

1) Like and follow the Texas Chiropractic Association Facebook page, and follow @TexasChiroAssn on Twitter. Both are open forums and TCA members, non-members and fans of chiropractic are invited to join.

2) Find the Texas Chiropractic Health Month post and be sure to “like” it and share it on your Facebook page and retweet it on Twitter!

3) Look for positive PR from TCA on social media and on our website. It’s yours to use.

FOOT LEVELERS HONORED WITH TCA FRIEND OF CHIROPRACTIC AWARD

The Texas Chiropractic Association (TCA) recently recognized Foot Levelers, Inc., with the prestigious TCA Friend of Chiropractic Award. TCA presented the award last month at the Foot Levelers Extremity Seminar Benefiting the Fight for Chiropractic in Texas in San Antonio.

The TCA Friend of Chiropractic Award is given to individuals and companies who consistently support TCA and have shown a commitment to advance the chiropractic profession in Texas. Previous winners include Parker University and Texas Chiropractic College.

“The Texas Chiropractic Association is thrilled to honor Foot Levelers with the prestigious Friend of Chiropractic Award,” said TCA President Max Vige, DC, of League City, who owns and operates a practice in Dickinson. “For decades, the chiropractic profession has been under assault in Texas, with legislative and legal threats designed to limit what chiropractors can do and restrict access to chiropractic care for all Texans. Foot Levelers is a true partner and is dedicated to keeping chiropractic strong and viable in the Lone Star State. While chiropractic picked up several key victories during the 2017 Texas Legislative Session, there is still much work to do, but it helps to have friends like Foot Levelers.”
