Anatomy in Action Series: Nursemaid's Elbow

Extremity pain is no stranger to the chiropractic office. DCs very commonly see shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, and feet. This article will focus on a particular condition of the elbow joint called nursemaid's elbow, which is most commonly seen in children.

The ranking of chiropractic has improved steadily from 56 in 2010 to 32 in 2011, and then to 19 in 2012.


How Different Mattresses Deal with Back Pain

Most patients notice that lying down and trying to sleep places pressure on the back, which causes pain. For many patients, this leads to them asking their DC, "Which mattress should I sleep on?"

Fortunately, the tools available to chiropractors and CAs are improving every day, and the thoughtful implementation of software tools, in particular, can really minimize some of the most vexing problems facing an office.
