BACKGROUND: Neck pain is a common presentation in general practice. Nevertheless, recommendations for the investigation and management of neck pain lack a strong evidence base and are predominantly extrapolated from low back pain studies. OBJECTIVE: This review provides an investigation and treatment paradigm to help primary care physicians assess and manage cervical spine pain. DISCUSSION: Although sinister causes of neck pain are rare, clinicians must be mindful of red flags that may indicate serious pathology.

This comparative quantitative study explored General Practitioners' (GPs) attitudes to homeopathy in Dumfries and Galloway, a predominantly rural area in South West Scotland where there is a local British Homeopathic Association Funded Homeopathic Clinic. It aimed to determine whether there was an association between expressed attitudes to homeopathy and a number of variables. Issues arising from the House of Lords Report on CAM were also explored. A self-administered questionnaire was addressed to all 135 GPs within Dumfries and Galloway.

Emil Aarestrup (1800-56) worked as a general physician, later as a public health officer in Denmark. He married his cousin and wrote love poems to her and to other women. His erotic poetry is regarded as the most elegant in Danish literature. His poems have precise words and colourful details and show a special sense of the condensed mood in the erotic situation. He writes upon the complex nature of love: union, separation and death.
