When a golfer presents with an injury,
do you know what to do?
By Tom LaFountain, DC
With high levels of earnings at stake each week for the PGA golfer, it is critical that down time be kept to a minimum. The objective from the clinician's perspective is always to secure an accurate assessment of the injuries presented and utilize all conservative means at our disposal to efficiently resolve the condition.
5 lessons from the road.

It all started in a hotel room – at least that's where the pain became so intense that I had to do something. I felt as if I was being stabbed near my left medial scapular border. Since I was traveling I had none of my usual treatment tools. The TV remote control would have to do. It fit nicely into the space between my scapula and spine, and all was well until the pressure I applied sounded a loud crack in the plastic. Surely this was just a rhomboid trigger point.

For almost a century, researchers have been attempting to identify specific dynamic and static anatomical measurements that predict three-dimensional motion during the gait cycle. In the early 1900s, Dudley Morton developed a foot classification system based on the respective lengths of the individual metatarsals. His theory that a shortened first metatarsal could identify overpronators has long since been disproved.

I realize the title of this article is annoying to some within the chiropractic profession. Actually, this is an especially poignant issue for straight chiropractors. The reason is because the straight sector of the profession generally (violently) opposes prescription rights for chiropractors.

The sternocleidomastoid muscle (SCM) can be an elusive contributor to neck pain because of its critical role in stabilization and equilibrium. The SCM is one of the most complex muscles in the body because of its wide array of muscle-patterning actions and intricate connection to force transmission via the fascial lines.

One of the problems with having such a small research community within the chiropractic profession is that we are fairly limited in the number of research studies we are able to conduct. To put it in perspective, the Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research (PCCR) has approximately 30 full-time employees and spends about $5 million per year.

One of my first patients was the wife of a medical doctor. It is difficult to express how nervous a 26-year-old neophyte chiropractor can be in a situation like this, and I was that chiropractor. When she left, I think I threw up in the bathroom. However, she improved quickly, and I obviously overreacted. In those days, I assumed that any MD would be an AMA member, be wary of chiropractors and certainly never refer a patient to one.
