The focus of D.C. Tracts’ final issue of the year is the diagnosis of low back pain – the most common complaint associated with chiropractic care. In this issue, the presenters outline both musculoskeletal and non-musculoskeletal sources of this problem.

The feature article by Dr. Sean Mathers, “Musculoskeletal Causes of Low Back Pain,” recaps for our readers the frequent sources of spinal pain including discogenic pain, Maignes syndrome, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, facet joint pain and spinal stenosis. In their audio lectures, Drs. Brynne Stainsby and Jacqueline Beres describe the non-musculoskeletal and discogenic origins of low back pain.

Dr. Brian Gleberzon’s Juris-Proofing section features part two of his series addressing the question, “What makes ‘informed consent’ truly informed?” Finally, Dr. Yasmeen Khan briefly outlines the scientific literature investigating lumbar disc herniations and uterine fibroids as a source of low back pain.

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