Study Shows Opioids Offer Little Chronic Pain Benefit

Is the use of opioids to treat chronic noncancer pain associated with greater benefits or harms compared with placebo and alternative analgesics?  A new analysis again demonstrates opioids may provide benefit for chronic noncancer pain, but the magnitude is likely to be small.

Pain creates a quality of life issue that opioids have utterly failed to address. Where should patients turn instead to treat and manage chronic pain conditions? Research released recently stated that patients undergoing chiropractic maintenance care had less back pain days than those not receiving chiropractic maintenance care. 

The “Triple Aim” in modern healthcare requires patient satisfaction, low costs and effective treatment. Chiropractic care has high marks in all these areas, yet physicians and private insurers continue to opt for low value, ineffective care – like opioids –  that carry devastating consequences for patients and their families.

ACA's NCLC Becomes "ACA Engage"

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) has announced plans to rename its annual meeting “ACA Engage” beginning in 2020. The new name is part of the association’s ongoing efforts to position members for success by bringing them cutting-edge education, networking and leadership-development opportunities, and the chance to lobby Congress on behalf of their patients and the profession. 

The National Chiropractic Leadership Conference (NCLC) has long been known for bringing together industry leaders from all over the country to meet with members of Congress on Capitol Hill, and engaging legislators will always be a priority. Over the past several years, however, the program has expanded considerably to include a wide variety of education offerings (with CE credit available), speeches from respected thought leaders and panel discussions that delve into some of the profession’s most compelling and important topics. The new name better reflects the expanded focus of the conference.

TCA Motion for Reconsideration Filed in VONT Case
Written by Editor   
Thursday, December 13, 2018 10:15 AM

On Wednesday, December 12, TCA filed a motion for reconsideration with the Third Court of Appeals in Austin in the TMA vs. TBCE/TCA (VONT) appeal. In its decision, the Court struck down the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners’ definition of the subluxation complex, faulting TBCE for calling it “a neuromusculoskeletal condition.” However, TCA believes the Court did not analyze whether “subluxation complex” – a freestanding part of the Texas Chiropractic Act – might include some element of nerves. TCA also contends that TBCE’s definition is the only correct definition of the subluxation complex and that it accurately reflects the core concept of chiropractic. TCA believes the Court should have separately analyzed the term “subluxation complex” instead of lumping it together with “musculoskeletal system” and that the subluxation complex—even with a role for nerves—is not the practice of neurology.
