And Now for some news ….

Physiological Effects of Slow Breathing

Slow breathing practices have been adopted in the modern world across the globe due to their claimed health benefits.

This has piqued the interest of researchers and clinicians who have initiated investigations into the physiological (and psychological) effects of slow breathing techniques and attempted to uncover the underlying mechanisms.

The aim of a recent article published in the journal Breathe, was to provide a comprehensive overview of normal respiratory physiology and the documented physiological effects of slow breathing techniques according to research in healthy humans.

Some examples of Key Points from the article included:

  • Slow breathing practices have gained popularity in the western world due to their claimed health benefits, yet remain relatively untouched by the medical community.
  • Investigations into the physiological effects of slow breathing have uncovered significant effects on the respiratory, cardiovascular, cardiorespiratory and autonomic nervous systems.
  • There appears to be potential for use of controlled slow breathing techniques as a means of optimising physiological parameters that appear to be associated with health and longevity, and that may extend to disease states; however, there is a dire need for further research into the area.

The review ends with a brief discussion of the potential clinical implications of slow breathing techniques. This is a topic that warrants further research, understanding and discussion.

Sequestered Lumbar Disc Herniation

The aim of a recent study published in the journal Medical Principles and Practice, was to assess radiological changes and clinical outcomes of patients with sequestered lumbar disc herniation (LDH) and evaluate the relationship between them.

Patients diagnosed with sequestered lumbar disc herniation were followed up in 2 groups: operated (within the 1st month after diagnosis) and nonoperated groups.

The student concluded that spontaneous regression was observed in the 6th month post-MRI in most of the nonoperated sequestered LDH patients with conservative treatment.

Improvements in pain and disability scores were higher among the operated patients at the early stage, whereas they were not significantly different compared to patients with spontaneous regression at the 6th month.

Myofascial Pain Syndrome and Electrical Stim

Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) is one of the most common disorders causing chronic muscle pain. Almost one-third of patients with musculoskeletal complaints meet the MPS criteria.

The aim of a recent study published in Chiropractic and Manual Therapies, was to evaluate the effectiveness of intramuscular electrical stimulation (IMES) in patients with MPS through a systematic review method.

Conclusions from the study found that there is preliminary evidence from a few small trials suggesting the efficacy of intramuscular electrical stimulation for the care of myofascial pain syndrome.

The data support the conduct of larger trials investigating the efficacy of intramuscular electrical stimulation.

Low Back Pain Flares vs Pain

The term flare is commonly used to describe low back pain (LBP) fluctuations, but individuals with LBP consider that it does not always correspond to increased pain.

This case cross-over study, published in the Clinical Journal of Pain, aimed to:

(1) determine the extent to which days with a flare identified according to a multidimensional definition (self-reported flare, SRF) corresponded to days with greater than average pain (pain-defined flare, PDF) and

(2) to investigate whether physical and psychosocial features differ between pain-defined flare and self-reported flare.

These findings highlight that when individuals with LBP consider they have a flare, they do not always have greater than average pain, but have worse psychosocial features.

This emphasizes that flare has broader dimensions than pain alone. Consideration of flare according to broad dimensions is important when investigating symptom fluctuations across different LBP trajectories.

Thoracic SMT and Neuroendocrine Response

The purpose of a recent study, published in JMPT, was to determine the neuroendocrine response after a thoracic spinal manipulation in people with Achilles tendinopathy.

The primary outcome measure was the testosterone/cortisol (T/C) ratio (salivary samples). The secondary outcome measures included heart rate variability (measured with electrocardiography) and total oxygenation index (nmol/L) of calf muscle and Achilles tendon (measured with near-infrared spectroscopy).

Conclusions found that in people with Achilles tendinopathy, thoracic spinal manipulation resulted in immediate increase in the total oxygenation index in the calf muscle followed by an increase in the testosterone/cortisol ratio 6 hours post-intervention.

SMT and Oculomotor Control

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a prevalent, chronic neurodevelopmental disorder that affects oculomotor (eye movement) control. Dysfunctional oculomotor control may result in reading or educational difficulties.

A recent randomized controlled crossover study published in the journal Brain Science, sought to investigate the feasibility of a larger scale trial and effects of a single session of spinal manipulation on oculomotor control in children with ADHD.

Thirty children participated in the study and were randomized into either control-first or spinal manipulation first groups.

The results indicate that the trial was feasible. Secondary outcomes showed that there was a significant decrease in reading time after the spinal manipulation intervention compared to the control intervention.

Future studies of the effects of spinal manipulation on oculomotor control in children with ADHD are suggested.

SMT and Risk of Treatment Escalation

The purpose of a recent study, published in JMPT, was to evaluate the relationship between treatment escalation and spinal manipulation in a retrospective cohort of people diagnosed with musculoskeletal disorders of the cervical spine.

A retrospective analysis of insurance claims data (2012-2018) from a single Fortune 500 company. After isolating the first episode of care, we categorized 58 147 claims into 7951 unique patient episodes. Treatment escalation included claims where imaging, injection, emergency room, or surgery was present.

The study concluded that among episodes of care associated with neck pain diagnoses, those associated with other care had twice the risk of any treatment escalation compared with those associated with spinal manipulation.

In the United States, over 90% of spinal manipulation is provided by doctors of chiropractic; therefore, these findings are relevant and should be considered in addressing solutions for neck pain.

Additional research investigating the factors influencing treatment escalation is necessary to moderate the use of high-cost and guideline-incongruent procedures in people with neck pain.

Fructose, Obesity and Cancer

Eating fructose appears to alter cells in the digestive tract in a way that enables it to take in more nutrients, according to a preclinical study from investigators at Weill Cornell Medicine and New York-Presbyterian. These changes could help to explain the well-known link between rising fructose consumption around the world and increased rates of obesity and certain cancers.

The research, recently published in the journal Nature, focused on the effect of a high-fructose diet on villi, the thin, hairlike structures that line the inside of the small intestine. Villi expand the surface area of the gut and help the body to absorb nutrients, including dietary fats, from food as it passes through the digestive tract.

“Fructose is structurally different from other sugars like glucose, and it gets metabolized differently,” said senior author Dr. Marcus DaSilva Goncalves,

“Our research has found that fructose’s primary metabolite promotes the elongation of villi and supports intestinal tumor growth.”

According to the study’s Abstract – The ability of fructose to promote cell survival through an allosteric metabolite thus provides additional insights into the excess adiposity generated by a Western diet, and a compelling explanation for the promotion of tumour growth by high-fructose corn syrup.

Text Neck

The excessive use of hand-held mobile devices (HHMD) leads to a postural phenomenon known as text neck.

The aim of a recent paper, published in the journal, Work, was to discuss the anatomical, biomechanical and muscle activation changes within the cervical and thoracic regions associated with the sustained, forward, flexed neck posture, observed with excessive usage of hand-held mobile devices.

Additionally, this paper examines the relationship of gender, as well as the effects of carrying backpack loads by youth, on this forward, flexed neck posture.

Prolonged use of hand-held mobile devices results in adverse anatomical and biomechanical changes in the cervical and thoracic spine, muscular imbalances, and postural compensations, all of which contribute to muscular overuse and fatigue resulting in pain.

Conclusions found that Proper posture includes: holding the device close to eye level, using the device while standing or sitting and holding the device with a line of sight perpendicular to the surface of the device, using a larger screen, and texting with both hands.

Also, because children are using hand held mobile devices at younger ages, parents and teachers must be educated about the dangers of prolonged use of hand-held devices.

Immune Aging, Inflammation and Neurological Diseases

As we age, the immune system undergoes a process of senescence accompanied by the increased production of proinflammatory cytokines, a chronic subclinical condition named as “inflammaging”.

Emerging evidence from human and experimental models suggest that immune senescence also affects the central nervous system and promotes neuronal dysfunction, especially within susceptible neuronal populations.

In a recent review, published in the journal Frontiers in Neuroscience, the authors discuss the potential role of immune aging, inflammation and metabolic derangement in neurological diseases.

The discovery of novel therapeutic strategies targeting age-linked inflammation may promote healthy brain aging and the treatment of neurodegenerative as well as neuropsychiatric disorders.

Central sensitisation in chronic pain conditions

Chronic pain is a leading cause of disability globally and associated with enormous health-care costs. The discrepancy between the extent of tissue damage and the magnitude of pain, disability, and associated symptoms represents a diagnostic challenge for rheumatology specialists.

Central sensitisation, defined as an amplification of neural signalling within the CNS that elicits pain hypersensitivity, has been investigated as a reason for this discrepancy.

Features of central sensitisation have been documented in various pain conditions common in rheumatology practice, including fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, upper extremity tendinopathies, headache, and spinal pain.

Central sensitisation predicts poor treatment outcomes in multiple patient populations. The available evidence supports various pharmacological and non-pharmacological strategies to reduce central sensitisation and to improve patient outcomes in several conditions commonly seen in rheumatology practice.

These data open up new treatment perspectives, with the possibility for precision pain medicine treatment according to pain phenotyping as a logical next step.

With this view, studies suggest the possibility of matching non-pharmacological approaches, or medications, or both to the central sensitisation pain phenotypes.

Reliability and validity of the One Arm Hop Test and Seated Medicine Ball Throw Test

Functional performance tests are inexpensive, accessible, and easy to apply tools that can be used to help practitioners in daily decision making process.

The purpose of a recent study published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, was to evaluate the reliability and validity of the One Arm Hop Test (OAHT) and Seated Medicine Ball Throw Test (SBMT) in young adults.

Conclusions stated that the One Arm Hop Test and the Seated Medicine Ball Throw Test show moderate/good reliability intra and inter-examiner, however these tests are poorly correlated with Closed Kinetic Chain Upper Extremity Stability Test.

A combination of the Seated Medicine Ball Throw Test and Closed Kinetic Chain Upper Extremity Stability Test is recommended in clinical practice.

Recovery of the lumbar multifidus muscle size in chronic low back pain patients by strengthening hip abductors

Decrease in cross-sectional thickness of lumbar multifidus (MF) muscles during prolonged low back pain episodes commonly occurs. Restoration of the MF muscle size can be an effective way of treating chronic low back pain (CLBP) patients.

Traditionally, clinicians apply muscle stabilization exercises for these patients. Recent studies support the need for active strengthening exercises for treatment of the CLBP patients.

The multifidus muscles provide lumbar stability, and therefore the authors of a recent study published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, hypothesized that strengthening of these muscles can be more effective than the multifidus muscle stabilization exercises in restoration of the muscle size.

Conclusions found that replacement of the traditional stabilization exercises with the hip abductor strengthening exercises for effective treatment of female adults with CLBP is recommended.

And Now for some news ….

Low Back Pain

A recent review of Low back was recently published in The Lancet.

Low Back pain covers a spectrum of different types of pain (eg, nociceptive, neuropathic and nociplastic, or non-specific) that frequently overlap. The elements comprising the lumbar spine (eg, soft tissue, vertebrae, zygapophyseal and sacroiliac joints, intervertebral discs, and neurovascular structures) are prone to different stressors, and each of these, alone or in combination, can contribute to low back pain.

Due to numerous factors related to low back pain, and the low specificity of imaging and diagnostic injections, diagnostic methods for this condition continue to be a subject of controversy.

The biopsychosocial model posits low back pain to be a dynamic interaction between social, psychological, and biological factors that can both predispose to and result from injury, and should be considered when devising interdisciplinary treatment plans.

Prevention of low back pain is recognised as a pivotal challenge in high-risk populations to help tackle high health-care costs related to therapy and rehabilitation.

To a large extent, therapy depends on pain classification, and usually starts with self-care and pharmacotherapy in combination with non-pharmacological methods, such as physical therapies and psychological treatments in appropriate patients.

For refractory low back pain, a wide range of non-surgical (eg, epidural steroid injections and spinal cord stimulation for neuropathic pain, and radiofrequency ablation and intra-articular steroid injections for mechanical pain) and surgical (eg, decompression for neuropathic pain, disc replacement, and fusion for mechanical causes) treatment options are available in carefully selected patients.

Most treatment options address only single, solitary causes and given the complex nature of low back pain, a multimodal interdisciplinary approach is necessary.

Although globally recognised as an important health and socioeconomic challenge with an expected increase in prevalence, low back pain continues to have tremendous potential for improvement in both diagnostic and therapeutic aspects.

Future research on low back pain should focus on improving the accuracy and objectivity of diagnostic assessments, and devising treatment algorithms that consider unique biological, psychological, and social factors.

High-quality comparative-effectiveness and randomised controlled trials with longer follow-up periods that aim to establish the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of low back pain management are warranted.

And Now for some news ….

Targeted Approach to Evaluating the Golfing Athlete with LBP

Low back pain is one of the most common conditions occurring in the golfing population. Many approaches have been utilized throughout the years to address this condition including the concept of regional interdependence.

The purpose of this case report, published in the North American Journal of Sports Physical Therapy, was to describe the evaluation process and treatment approach of a golfer with low back pain using the principles of regional interdependence.

The patient in this case study had mobility restrictions in his thoracic spine and hips that appeared to be contributing to a hypermobility in the lower lumbar spine.

Based on the evaluation, he was placed into the treatment-based classification (TBC) of stabilization but would also benefit from mobilization/manipulation techniques.

This case report describes the evaluation process and treatment approach to specifically target the demands that are required during the golf swing.

Utilizing a targeted approach that includes golf specific movement screening and a swing evaluation can help guide the therapist in their treatment and improve the patient’s outcome.

Reliability and Validity of the Y-balance Test in Chronic LBP

Individuals with chronic low back pain (CLBP) may demonstrate reduced ability to perform dynamic tasks due to fear of additional pain and injury in response to the movement.

The Y-balance test (YBT) is a functional and inexpensive test used with various populations. However, the reliability and validity of the Y-balance test used for assessing dynamic balance in young adults with chronic low back pain have not yet been examined.

A recent study was published in the North American Journal of Sports Physical Therapy, to determine the inter-rater reliability of the Y-balance test and to compare dynamic balance between young adults with chronic low back pain and an asymptomatic group.

Conclusions from the study found that the results demonstrated excellent inter-rater reliability and validity of the Y-balance test for assessing dynamic balance in the chronic low back pain population.

The Y-balance test may be a useful tool for clinicians to assess dynamic balance deficits in patients with chronic low back pain.

And Now for some news ….

Muscle Relaxants and LBP

A recent study in the journal BMJ, was published to investigate the efficacy, acceptability, and safety of muscle relaxants for low back pain.

Low back pain is a global public health problem and muscle relaxants are a commonly prescribed treatment. 

The findings show that muscle relaxants might reduce pain in the short term, but the effect is too small to be considered clinically meaningful, and there is an increased risk of side effects.

But the researchers stress that the certainty of evidence is low and say large trials are urgently needed to resolve uncertainties around the use of these drugs for back pain.

Conclusions found that considerable uncertainty exists about the clinical efficacy and safety of muscle relaxants.

Very low and low certainty evidence shows that non-benzodiazepine antispasmodics might provide small but not clinically important reductions in pain intensity at or before two weeks and might increase the risk of an adverse event in acute low back pain, respectively.

Large, high quality, placebo controlled trials are urgently needed to resolve uncertainty.

Discuss alternative therapies with your Qualified Healthcare Provider, such as your Doctor of Chiropractic!

Chiro SMT and SI Joint Dysfunction Oxidative Stress

A recent study was published in the Turkish Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation to investigate the effect of chiropractic manipulative treatment on sacroiliac joint dysfunction (SIJD) and its relationship to oxidative stress (OXS) parameters.

The patients were evaluated at pre-treatment and one month after treatment with visual analog scale, sacroiliac joint dysfunction test, and total thiol, native thiol, disulphide, and ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) as oxidative stress indicators.

Conclusions from the study found that manipulation is useful in sacroiliac joint dysfunction.

Thiol/disulphide homeostasis and serum IMA levels may be used to measure the oxidative stress in patients with sacroiliac joint dysfunction.
