Letter from the Editor-in-Chief

Welcome to the Functional and Clinical Neurology issue of D.C. Tracts! »

In this issue, our contributors review several interesting topics including multisensory myelopathy and central sensitization.

Dr. Brett Winchester’s Feature Article highlights how information from different sensory modalities may be integrated by the nervous system, and the considerable role of spinal manipulation, soft-tissue massage and rehabilitation in modulating dysfunctional afferent feedback.

Dr. Donald Murphy outlines the clinical relevance of cervical spine myelopathy, a common but at times overlooked source of neurological pain. He delivers an evidence-informed approach for managing myelopathy highlighting the importance of a thorough consultation and examination, along with a discussion of its appropriate management and careful monitoring.

In his Audio Lecture, Dr. Jeffrey Remsburg describes the pathophysiology behind nociception, including centrally-mediated pain or central sensitization. In addition, he provides clinical insights for managing chronic pain such as patient education, exercise and lifestyle changes.

Dr. Brian Gleberzon continues his Juris-Proofing series by exploring what constitutes “informed consent,” and Dr. Yasmeen Khan reviews the literature examining the effects of manual therapy on functional neurology.

I trust that you will find this issue of D.C. Tracts both informative and interesting, refining your clinical expertise and patient services.
