Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania are working to uncover ways to encourage the cells in and around the meniscus to repair themselves, hopefully leading to less invasive procedures. Scientists within the McKay Orthopaedic Research Laboratory are taking a tissue-engineering approach to improve many types of healing related to the skeletal system, says Lou Soslowsky, the vice-chair for research in the department of orthopaedic surgery. "We blend biology with engineering to understand normal and pathologic processes to ultimately replace or regenerate musculoskeletal tissues."
STUDY TITLE: Chiropractic Treatments for Idiopathic Scoliosis: A Narrative Review Based on the SOSORT Outcome CriteriaAUTHORS: Morningstar MW, Stitzel CJ, Siddiqui A et al.PUBLICATION INFORMATION: Journal of Chiropractic Medicine 2017; 16(1): 64-71
Idiopathic scoliosis (IS) is widely treated by chiropractors. The common goals of treatment include correction or stabilization of the Cobb angle (i.e. curve severity) and/or to provide pain relief.

It is the number one reason that people go to see the doctor, and it is now a national crisis. The problem: chronic pain and prescription opioids. The dilemma: how to provide the most effective pain treatment for 80 per cent of pain patients who are at least risk for addiction while causing the least harm to the remaining 20 per cent who are at most risk. The solution: it's very complicated, but it may be possible to address both problems without adversely affecting either.
A new national survey for Canadian chiropractors will launch in January 2018 aimed at assessing the profession's use, opinion, skill and training on evidence-informed clinical practice, according to the Canadian Chiropractic Guideline Initiative (CCGI).
