  Title Chiropractic hazard: DCs' repetitive-motion injuries
Journal JACA Online. 2005 Mar;42(2):Online access only p.2-7
Peer Review No
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes Many doctors of chiropractic know firsthand that using their own bodies to help relieve patient pain can backfire. Kerwin Winkler, DC, is philosophical about it. "Ergonomically, pain goes with the territory. Sore necks are common to electricians. After all, they're always looking up-and we're always adjusting." Ligament strains, vertebral disc conditions, tendinitis, and muscle strains are common among DCs-in addition to problems that arise from degeneration. Wrists, thumbs, shoulders, and lower backs are among the most typical pain-producing sites, according to Ronald L. Rupert, MS, DC, director of research at Parker College Research Institute. Warren Hammer, DC, singles out the carpal metacarpal (CMC) thumb joint as "probably the most injured area" because it was never designed to do what doctors of chiropractic require of it. .
