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 2013 issue of Topics in Integrative Health Care presents articles of interest to clinicians, particularly those with a focus on neuromusculoskeletal conditions. This issue’s authors represent a number of health professions, including acupuncture, chiropractic, nursing and psychology. Antoinette Nguyen DC, MSHCA, and colleagues present a case report on a combination of acupuncture and chiropractic treatment for a patient with persistent Bell’s palsy symptoms. Jordan Gliedt, DC, and colleagues present a clinical brief on neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome, a challenging and frequently misdiagnosed disorder of the upper extremity. Finally, Samuel Saikia, DC, and Rodger Tepe, PhD, contribute a literature review on the etiology, treatment, and prevention of iliotibial band syndrome, a common condition among athletes. This issue’s Fast Facts was contributed by Stacie Salsbury, PhD, RN. We also welcome Clinton Daniels, DC, MS, to TIHC’s editorial board.

We invite readers to contribute to Putting Research into Practice, clinical briefs, and 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.
