Academy e-letter
Volume 4, Number 1
January, 2005

From the Desk of J. R. Brandt, DC, FACO
President, Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists

Good Morning Doctor,

We all have great cases that would benefit the membership, but don’t seem to have the time or the energy to put the case together. Usually it is because one is not certain about the format that should be used.

Here are some guideline suggestions:

  1. Case must have orthopedic relevance
  2. Case must be sanitized to HIPPA standards
  3. Submit on diskette, CD-rom or via e-mail. The e-letter is being set up to accept video.
  4. A recommended outline, but not mandatory is on outline that is on the website (www.dcorthoacademy.com). This is found under “Guidelines for Authors.” Other recommendations are given on this link.
  5. You can earn 4 hours of credit towards voluntary re-credentialing with the Academy if your article is published. When you apply for re-certification, place the name of the article and the date/e-journal volume in which the article appears.

Cases involving but not limited to unusual injury onset, fracture, disc injuries, sports, MVA, diagnostic imaging, rheumatic disease, entrapment syndromes, interesting diagnostic work-ups, treatment of conditions, medical-legal or other areas of interest to the orthopedist. Good information can be given in short articles or papers; they don’t have to be lengthy to be interesting. I hope you will consider and put a case or two together.

Looking foreword to April in San Antonio…it was -54 degrees F in northern Minnesota this week… Stay warm!
