Clinical Case Series

Clinical Case Series Is the most basic type of study design, in which researchers describe the experience of a group of people. Case series describe individuals who develop a particular new disease or condition. This type of study can provide compelling reading because they present a detailed account of the clinical experience of individual study subjects. Dr. Alex Jimenez conducts his own case series studies.

A case study is a method of research that is commonly used in social sciences. It is a research strategy that investigates a phenomenon within a real context. They are based on in-depth investigation of a single person, group or event to explore the how of underlying problems/causes. It includes quantitative evidence and relies on multiple sources of evidence.

Case studies are an invaluable record of clinical practices of a profession. They do not provide specific guidance for the management of successive patients but they are a record of clinical interactions which help to frame questions for more rigorously designed clinical studies. They provide valuable teaching material, which demonstrate both classical and unusual information that can confront the practitioner. However, the majority of clinical interactions occur in the field and so it’s up to the practitioner to record and pass on the information.  Guidelines are intended to assist the relatively novice writer, practitioner or student to efficiently navigate the study to publication.

A Case series is a descriptive study design and its just a series of cases of any particular disease or disease discrepancy that one might observe in a clinical practice. These cases are described to suggest at best a hypothesis. However, there is no comparison group so there cannot be many conclusions about the disease or the disease process. Therefore, in terms of generating evidence regarding various aspects of a disease process this is more of a starting point.

Evaluation of the McKenzie Method for Low Back Pain

Evaluation of the McKenzie Method for Low Back Pain

Acknowledging statistical data, low back pain can be the result of a variety of injuries and/or conditions affecting the lumbar spine and its surrounding structures. Most cases of low back pain, however, will resolve on their own in a matter of weeks. But when symptoms of low back pain become chronic, its essential for the affected individual to seek treatment from the most appropriate healthcare professional. The McKenzie method has been used by many healthcare specialists in the treatment of low back pain and its effects have been recorded widely throughout various research studies. The following two articles are being presented to evaluate the McKenzie method in the treatment of LBP in comparison to other types of treatment options.

Pilates Chiropractor vs. McKenzie Chiropractor: Which is Better?

Low back pain, or LBP, is a very common condition which affects the lumbar spine, or the lower section of the spine. Approximately more than 3 million cases of LBP are diagnosed in the United States aline every year and about 80 percent of adults worldwide experience low back pain at some point during their lifetime. Low back pain is generally caused by injury to a muscle (strain) or ligament (sprain) or due to damage from a disease. Common causes of LBP include poor posture, lack of regular exercise, improper lifting, fracture, herniated discs and/or arthritis. Most cases of low back pain may often go away on their own, however, when LBP becomes chronic, it may be important to seek immediate medical attention. Two therapeutic methods have been utilized to improve LBP. The following article compares the effects of Pilates and McKenzie training on LBP.

Chiropractic Management of Low Back Pain and Low Back-Related Leg Complaints: A Literature Synthesis


Chiropractic care is a well-known complementary and alternative treatment option frequently used to diagnose, treat and prevent injuries and conditions of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Spinal health issues are among some of the most common reasons people seek chiropractic care, especially for low back pain and sciatica complaints. While there are many different types of treatments available to help improve low back pain and sciatica symptoms, many individuals will often prefer natural treatment options over the use of drugs/medications or surgical interventions. The following research study demonstrates a list of evidence-based chiropractic treatment methods and their effects towards improving a variety of spinal health issues.
