The lecture aims to share a perspective on the future of health and the promise of primary health care in Nigeria. I intend to place Nigeria's health situation within the context of important trends that are occurring globally, as well as in our mother continent, Africa. Within that context, I will attempt to link health and economic development, share some observations on Nigeria's demographic dynamics linked to its health status, aspects from recent history of its health system's evolution, identify the underlying reasons for the key challenges and present a few ideas on the way forward. There are several major transitions happening gradually in our world today, and particularly in Africa and Nigeria, which can easily escape notice.
First, chiropractic and osteopathic manipulation was combined in a single variable, making it impossible to make conclusions about the characteristics or complaints of patients of either practitioner. This is an important distinction, since osteopathic scope of practice includes the use of drugs and surgery as well as manipulation, so it is possible that patients who see osteopathic practitioners for manipulation might have different characteristics and chief complaints than those who see chiropractic practitioners.
The concept has been developed by Heiner Biedermann and medical doctors in Germany and contributed significantly to the development of manual therapy in children in that country. Following the walking of 6 minutes, the CVA demonstrated further statistically significant changes for all backpack loads indicating increased forward head postures.
Attitudes and Views on Chiropractic: Responders were certified nurse-midwives and had some form of training regarding chiropractic. The responders were aware that chiropractors worked with "birthing professionals" and attended to patients with both musculoskeletal and non-musculoskeletal disorders.
The vast majority indicated a positive personal and professional clinical experience with chiropractic and that chiropractic was safe for pregnant patients and children.
There is great awareness of and positive personal and professional experience with chiropractic on the part of midwives who participated in this survey.
A number of nutritional depletions occur during pregnancy. Serum concentrations of iron and folate take months before they normalize to pre-pregnancy levels.
Additionally, many micronutrients required during pregnancy interfere with each other, making absorption difficult. Postpartum depression is the primary complication of childbirth, possibly caused by several nutritional and non-nutritional factors.
The current review highlights the impact nutrition may have on the etiology of this debilitating disorder, most notably on prevention of inflammation and maintenance of a healthy central nervous system.
The most notable nutritional deficiencies associated with postpartum depression include omega-3 fatty acids, folate, iron, and zinc; however, supplementation trials for prevention of postpartum depression are severely lacking.
Practical recommendations are given to minimize micronutrient interference and reduce the risk of postpartum depression. Assessing the elbow for fracture can be difficult because of the changing anatomy of the growing skeleton and the subtlety of some of these fractures.
It's important to be aware of the radiographic signs of fracture in the elbow, along with knowing the appearance and fusion of the ossification centers in the pediatric patient, to avoid confusing an ossification center with a fracture fragment.
Of course, alignment and radiographic positioning are also extremely important in making a diagnostic assessment. In Norway one-third of all pregnant women are on sick leave at any given time, and many of these because of back pain. There is little agreement on the best treatment for the various MSK problems in pregnancy and very little is known about the efficacy of chiropractic treatment in pregnancy.
However, chiropractic care has been shown to be both popular with patients during pregnancy, as well as being considered safe and appropriate by chiropractors.
The purpose of this paper is to describe a survey which investigated the characteristics of pregnant women who sought chiropractic care in Norway. The complaints of all children over five years were categorized as musculoskeletal. In all age groups, just over a third A.
