Topics in Integrative Health Care welcomes unsolicited manuscripts with original research, Grand Rounds, clinical briefs and “fast facts” collections. All submissions are peer-reviewed.

The September 2012 issue of Topics in Integrative Health Care presents articles of interest to clinicians, particularly chiropractors and other complementary and alternative health care providers who care for patients with musculoskeletal conditions. TIHC Associate Editor, Daniel Redwood, DC, contributes a timely commentary on the implications of the Supreme Court’s upholding of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Ekele Enyinnaya, DC, MS, and colleagues present their research on chiropractic care and Medicaid coverage for patients with arthritis, an important public health and health service issue. Jay Greenstein, DC, and colleagues investigate the effect of an orthopedic cervical pillow on sleep outcomes among patients with Whiplash Associated Disorder, a topic of interest to any providers serving patients with this very common complaint. Clinton Daniels, DC, MS, and Frank Scali, DC, have contributed a clinical brief on sports hernia, a topic of particular interest to clinicians serving athletes.
 
We invite readers to contribute clinical briefs, as well as citations for “Fast Facts,” a feature included in every issue. We also welcome concept proposals for “Grand Rounds,” in which a complex case is presented and discussants from various disciplines give their perspective on treatment.
 
We hope you will find something of interest in the journal and that you will share this with others and encourage them to use this valuable online resource.
