And Now for some news ….
WFC releases new guiding principles document
The World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) has recently published a suite of guiding principles that will support its strategy for supporting, empowering, promoting and advancing chiropractic globally.
The WFC’s new Principles document consists of 20 statements that set out clearly what the organization stands for and how it views chiropractic as a contemporary global health profession.
The statements, which align with the WFC’s mission to advance awareness, utilization and integration of chiropractic internationally, were approved unanimously by the Board of Directors.
In drafting the statements the WFC has been mindful of the social determinants of health that influence access to care and the variety of environments in which chiropractic is practiced.
Secretary-General Dr Richard Brown commented: “The WFC is an inclusive, global organization and we want these statements to resonate with chiropractors around the world.
They reflect our commitment to support and develop the profession for the benefit of patients and the public and we’re excited to be launching the Principles document at this time.”

Chiropractic Care for Patients With Low Back or Neck Pain
Musculoskeletal disorders are the second leading cause of disability worldwide.
A recent study published in the Journal of Patient Experience, examined experiences of chiropractic patients in the United States with chronic low back or neck pain.
Observational study of 1853 chronic low back pain and neck pain patients (74% female) who completed an online questionnaire at the 3-month follow-up that included Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) items assessing their experiences with care.
The study concluded that the positive experiences of patients with chronic back and neck pain are supportive of their use of chiropractic care.

Finally, I leave you with the following quote:
“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life–think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.”
