The last thirty years in health care have brought about many changes: an emphasis on cost-effective treatments and interprofessional collaboration, an increase in medical specialization and sub-specialization, the concept and implementation of evidence-based practice, and a greater acceptance of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) therapies in mainstream medicine. Amid all of these transformations and shifts in the health care arena, a primary spine care specialist role has not been established.

The literature pertaining to chiropractic students’ opinions with respect to the desired future status of the chiropractic physician is limited. A previous pilot study was performed at a single chiropractic college. This study is an expansion of this pilot project to collect data from chiropractic students enrolled in colleges throughout North America.  The purpose of the study is to investigate North American chiropractic students’ opinions concerning professional identity, role and future.

Most respondents agreed (34.8%) or strongly agreed (52.2%) that it is important for chiropractors to be educated in evidence-based practice. A majority agreed (35.6%) or strongly agreed (25.8%) the emphasis of chiropractic intervention is to eliminate vertebral subluxations/vertebral subluxation complexes. A large number of respondents (55.2%) were not in favor of expanding the scope of the chiropractic profession to include prescribing medications with appropriate advanced training. Most respondents estimated that chiropractors should be considered mainstream health care practitioners (69.1%). Several respondents (46.8%) think that chiropractic research should focus on the physiological mechanisms of chiropractic adjustments.

Pediatric headache is an increasingly reported phenomenon. Headache is the most frequently reported pain in children, with an even sex distribution up to the age of 12, after which more females than males suffer. Cognitive, behavioral, and emotional factors have been shown to play important roles in generating headache in children. In addition, physical factors, such as schoolwork, increased forward head posture, and prolonged static postures of the head have also been shown to play a role in triggering headache. 

Pediatric headache prevalence rates are 50% during school years, increasing during adolescence to 80%. Studies have shown that children with more severe headache report lower quality in life, in general, while early onset headache can be predictive of ongoing problems during adolescence and adult life, indicating the importance of diagnosis and management.

The idea of chiropractors treating children is controversial to some, yet many parents seek chiropractic care for their children. Part one of this study aimed to document the profile of all pediatric patients consulting Norwegian chiropractors in 2013 using National Health Insurance data (NHI) with regards to age, gender and primary complaints.

Musculoskeletal problems constituted the most common presenting complaint for children and adolescents presenting to Norwegian chiropractors. A sizable proportion of children seemed to be adversely affected by their complaints in terms of low mood and limitations of daily activities. Chronic presentations were not uncommon.
