Integration of Post-Concussion Support Strategies into chiropractic practice

This is a clinically orientated paper which explores an evidence-based rationale for the inclusion of concussion screening protocols and clinical support of the concussion patient in a general chiropractic practice. It includes topics such as: definitions of concussion, concussion screening, clinical assessment, development of an interdisciplinary referral protocol and network, a description of some in-office clinical treatment and support strategies and a discussion of how to enhance patient and community awareness of the illness burden of undetected post concussion syndrome. This document is not a clinical training or certification document or manual; it is recommended that chiropractors wishing to implement the strategies in this paper undergo clinical training in basic concussion diagnostic and treatment protocols.

Leon Chaitow: Fascial Dysfunction: Adaption as a major feature

In 2014 Dr Leon Chaitow gathered some of the most distinguished practitioners and researchers from across the spectrum of the bodywork professions to produce the first edition of this book; a multidisciplinary array of evidence-informed approaches at the cutting edge of new knowledge about fascia. In his own words: ‘This book should be seen as work in progress – a translation of current research-based knowledge, designed to counterbalance the plethora of misinformation related to fascial function, dysfunction, and treatment.’ () 

He completed the draft revision of the second edition just days before becoming critically ill in February 2018. I helped him to complete the proofs and images in his final days. Fascial Dysfunction: Manual Therapy Approaches 2e represents the culmination of his exploration of musculoskeletal function and dysfunction that had concerned him from the beginning of his career, and combines the two aspects that he considered most important: translational research and multidisciplinary clinical perspectives. 

This excerpt summarises the spirit of the book, demonstrating its breadth and potential for practitioners in all fields.
