    The goal of this session is to empower attendees with the information and tools necessary to deliver, and instruct chiropractic students in best practice management of low back pain.

    The purpose of the Choosing Wisely campaign is to spark thoughtful conversations between patients and their doctors about the best,
    most appropriate care. Choosing Wisely is a joint effort between the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation and Consumer
    Reports.
    They feature recommendations about health care procedures that are common, but whose usefulness in some cases is not supported
    by the evidence. To participate, healthcare organizations develop a list of 5 tests and/or procedures that may be common but for whom
    routine use is not necessarily based on the best evidence available. In August of 2017, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA)
    released their Choosing Wisely list. This list focuses on the use of x-rays, back braces, physical therapy modalities and psychosocial
    assessments for patients who need longer term care.
    Since the release of this list, there has been significant controversy regarding the ACA's Choosing Wisely recommendations, including
    misunderstandings regarding how they are to be applied in chiropractic clinical practice. The ACA’s Choosing Wisely campaign creates
    an opportunity for our chiropractic educational institutions to discuss best practices in spine care, and what constitutes patient centered,
    evidence informed management of back pain.
    Panelists will begin with a discussion of the Choosing Wisely campaign, and the evidence base that informed recommendations.
    Leading experts will supplement the discussion by challenging and exploring various facets of the recommendations. This includes
    imaging related questions to consider as part of our chiropractic research agenda, an update of best practices for active care in patient
    treatment plans, and perspectives on the extent to which Doctor of Chiropractic Programs should reflect Choosing Wisely
    recommendations in their curricula. The goal of this session is to empower attendees with the information and tools necessary to
    deliver, and instruct chiropractic students in best practice management of low back pain.

    This presentation by Dr. Robert Silverman, DC will explore the commonalities between Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, and metabolic disorders. They can all be induced by systemic gut bacterial toxins. The pathogens involved in gut dysbiosis possess inflammatory toxins such as lipopolysaccharides (LPS) and cytolethal distending toxins (CDT). The release of these toxins in the gut opens intestinal tight junctions and degrades epithelial cells allowing for unfettered infiltration of LPS and CDT into the periphery. Once in circulation, the inflammatory LPS and CDT can travel throughout the body, opening the blood-brain barrier, inflaming joint tissues, dysregulating the thyroid, and initiating insulin resistance. This therapeutic opportunity applies to many of the patients seen each week. Detection of systemic bacterial toxins can guide an appropriate gut-healing protocol. Repairing and maintaining the intestinal barrier is a key component in combating many extra-intestinal disorders.
