Letter from the Editor-in-Chief

We are delighted to share our latest volume of D.C. Tracts, exploring chiropractic management of head/neck pain..

According to the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, head/neck complaints are frequently managed by chiropractors. In addition, head/neck complaints are a common source of patient-reported disability and represent a significant cost of healthcare spending in the United States, and across the global community.

In this issue, Dr. Tracey Littrell provides the second in a two-part series describing the clinical application and role of cone beam computer tomography (CBCT) technology. Dr. Littrell reviews a number of developmental anomalies and acquired conditions that may be encountered in a chiropractic practice. Drs. Justin Hildebrand and Brad Muir deliver audio lectures focusing on the assessment of neurological sources of head/neck pain, including cervical radiculopathy, cervical myelopathy, and trigeminal neuralgia. In addition, Dr. Muir presents abstracts and commentaries describing mechanical, neurological and soft-tissue causes of head/neck pain. Dr. Brian Gleberzon outlines part 2 of his Juris-Proofing series discussing the significance of keeping appropriate patient health records.

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

Best regards,

Bryan M. Bond, BSc, BS, MS, PhD
