ConclusionKnowledge of chiropractic Maintenance Care has advanced. There is reasonable consensus among chiropractors on what Maintenance Care is, how it should be used, and its indications. Presently, Maintenance Care can be considered an evidence-based method to perform secondary or tertiary prevention in patients with previous episodes of low back pain, who report a good outcome from the initial treatments. However, these results should not be interpreted as an indication for Maintenance Care on all patients, who receive chiropractic treatment.

We present the case of a 5-year-old female who developed compartment syndrome of her left foot 26 hours after sustaining an isolated crush injury to the distal forefoot. Her treatment included emergent fasciotomy in combination with 20 hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments. The progression of her acute digital ischemia was monitored by using serial fluorescence microangiography studies performed at 17 hours, 7 days, and 3 weeks postinjury. Throughout these serial studies, improvement in hypofluorescence was noted involving the dorsolateral midfoot, as well as digits 3, 4, and 5, which correlated with physical examination. T...

We describe a method by using combined wedge non-VBG to correct the nonunion deformity when treating scaphoid nonunion with pedicled VBG. The wedge bone graft was harvested just proximal to the 2,3 intercompartmental supraretinacular artery VBG and was used as an inlay at the volar site to correct the humpback deformity, whereas the VBG was set at the dorsal site for bone bridging and blood supply. We also present our results of 10 patients with scaphoid fracture nonunion and humpback deformity treated with this method. Bone healing was achieved and the lateral intrascaphoid angles could be improved in all the 10 patients....
