Spontaneous resolution of myopic retinoschisis.

AME Case Rep 2019 13;3. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Ophthalmology Department, Hong Kong Adventist Hospital, Hong Kong, China.

Spontaneous resolution of myopic retinoschisis is an unusual event due to the fact that most eyes of patients with this condition have already undergone certain morphological changes and vision will progressively worsen over time. We present a case of spontaneous anatomic and visual improvement in a myopic eye with a macular retinoschisis. The patient was monocular oculus dextrus (OD) with a history of left eye enucleation for recurrent retinal detachment and glaucoma for 30 years prior. Read More

George W Cody

Integr Med (Encinitas) 2018 Jun;17(3):18-21

In the 1930s, chiropractic and naturopathy both moved from amalgamation to professionalization to stabilize the quest for legal status. This part of the history of nonmedical physicians who were largely chiropractornaturopaths has not been well developed. An understanding of this history is necessary to link these professions to the modern professions of chiropractic and naturopathic physicians that exist today. Read More

In-Depth Investigation into the Transient Humidity Response at the Body-Seat Interface on Initial Contact Using a Dual Temperature and Humidity Sensor.

Sensors (Basel) 2019 Mar 26;19(6). Epub 2019 Mar 26.

Faculty of Life Science and Education, University of South Wales, Treforest, Pontypridd CF37 1DL, UK.

Relative humidity (RH) at the body-seat interface is considered an important factor in both sitting comfort and generation of health concerns such as skin lesions. Technical difficulties appear to have limited research aimed at the detailed and simultaneous exploration of RH and temperature changes at the body-seat interface; using RH sensors without the capability to record temperature where RH is recorded. To explore the causes of a spike in RH consistently produced on first contact between body and seat surface, we report data from the first use of dual temperature and RH (HTU21D) sensors in this interface.

Measurement of Dorsal First Ray Mobility: A Topical Historical Review and Commentary.

Foot Ankle Int 2019 Mar 22:1071100719839692. Epub 2019 Mar 22.

2 Michaud Chiropractic Center, Newton, MA, USA.

Despite evidence that instability of the first ray (first metatarsal and medial cuneiform) alters the loading mechanics of the foot, surprisingly few studies have linked the condition with disorders of the foot. A factor limiting this research is the difficulty associated with measuring first ray mobility (FRM). To quantify dorsal FRM, clinicians and researchers have devised a variety of methods that impose a dorsally directed load, and record displacement. Read More

Where has the 'bio' in bio-psycho-social gone?

Curr Opin Support Palliat Care 2019 Mar 18. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

Integrative Spinal Research Group, Department of Chiropractic Medicine, University Hospital Balgrist and University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland.

Purpose Of Review: Current definitions of pain do not necessitate tissue damage. This is important because it does justice to the pain patient in whom a nociceptive source is not detectable. However, in conjunction with exciting findings regarding supraspinal pain modulation and a (perceived) failure of identifying nociceptive sources in individual patients, this might have led to a devaluation of the role of nociception for chronic pain.

Contrasting real time quantitative measures (weekly SMS) to patients' retrospective appraisal of their one-year's course of low back pain; a probing mixed-methods study.

Chiropr Man Therap 2019 26;27:12. Epub 2019 Feb 26.

1Department of Sports Science and Clinical Biomechanics, University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark.

Background: Due to the recurrent nature of low back pain (LBP), the traditional concepts of cure and recovery are challenged, and investigating the course rather than status at fixed time-points may help us understand prognosis as well as treatment effect. However, methods of frequent measuring still need development and validation. Therefore, this study aims to evaluate the agreement between continuous, quantitative self-assessment (weekly SMS) of the course of LBP over a one-year period and qualitatively derived retrospective patient self-appraisal of the same time-period.

Rapid Quantification of the Total Viable Bacterial Population on Human Hands Using Flow Cytometry with SYBR® Green I.

Cytometry B Clin Cytom 2019 Mar 9. Epub 2019 Mar 9.

Water and Health Research Centre, University of Johannesburg, Doornfontein, South Africa.
