Citrulline and Tight Junctions

Impairments of intestinal barrier function are discussed as risk factors for the development and progression of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

Studies suggest an association between arginine/citrulline homeostasis and the development of liver damages.

A recent study, published in the European Journal of Nutrition, found that the effect of an oral l-citrulline (Cit) supplement on the development of a Western-style diet (WSD)-induced NAFLD was determined in mice.

Data from the study’s conclusion suggest that the protective effects of supplementing oral l-citrulline on the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in mice are associated with a decreased translocation of endotoxin into the portal vein.

As always, discuss all Nutritional Recommendations with your Qualified Healthcare Provider.

Low Grade Inflammation and Aging

Despite a wealth of clinical data showing an association between inflammation and degenerative disorders in the elderly, the immune sensors that causally link systemic inflammation to aging remain unclear.

In a study published in the journal Cell Metabolism, the authors detail a mechanism by which the Nlrp3 inflammasome controls systemic low-grade age-related “sterile” inflammation in both periphery and brain independently of the inflammasome.

Ablation of Nlrp3 inflammasome protected mice from age-related increases in the innate immune activation, alterations in CNS transcriptome, and astrogliosis.

Consistent with the hypothesis that systemic low-grade inflammation promotes age-related degenerative changes, the deficient Nlrp3 inflammasome-mediated caspase-1 activity improved glycemic control and attenuated bone loss and thymic demise.

Notably, IL-1 mediated only Nlrp3 inflammasome-dependent improvement in cognitive function and motor performance in aged mice.

These studies reveal Nlrp3 inflammasome as an upstream target that controls age-related inflammation and offer an innovative therapeutic strategy to lower Nlrp3 activity to delay multiple age-related chronic diseases.

Pre-Manipulative Treatment for Athletes

One of the goals of providing manipulative treatment such as osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) is to restore maximal, pain-free movement of the musculoskeletal system and to enhance neuromuscular function. Anecdotally, some athletes have reported that their athletic performance improves after manipulative treatment.

The objective of a study published in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association was to develop preliminary data to gain more understanding about the association between precompetition manipulative treatments provided to Division I football players and their athletic performance during each game for 2 consecutive football seasons.

The study design was a retrospective cohort study. Participants were football athletes at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech).

Board-certified osteopathic physicians who were trained in osteopathic manipulative medicine and sports medicine performed OMT and determined the type of OMT techniques used and the spinal segments treated. One chiropractor provided chiropractic manipulative therapy.

The study concluded that precompetition manipulative treatment was positively associated with improved performance among both offensive and defensive Virginia Tech football players. Although the associations between these 2 factors were relatively small and not statistically significant, the authors of the study found positive correlations in performance of the offensive and defensive players.

Effects of Cervical Extension on the Intervertebral Disc

The authors of a study published in the journal PM&R theorized that active cervical extension should influence the position of the nucleus pulposus (NP) within the intervertebral disc (IVD) in the sagittal plane.

While several studies on the lumbar intervertebral disc have been conducted, there are no quantitative data for in vivo positional changes of the nucleus pulposus in the cervical intervertebral disc.

The objective of the study was to evaluate the influence and mechanism of cervical extension on the deformation and migration of intervertebral disc and nucleus pulposus in the sagittal plane and understand underlying mechanisms of the extension maneuver.

Results of the study found that anterior and posterior intervertebral disc margins moved posteriorly with respect to the vertebral body in extension. Both NP margins remained unchanged relative to the vertebral body but moved anteriorly with respect to the intervertebral disc.

Intervertebral disc outer and inner heights in the anterior region increased in extension, and morphological changes of the nucleus pulposus were less noticeable when compared with its relative migration within the intervertebral disc. Most of the intradiscal changes were linearly correlated with the segmental extension angle.

The study concluded that cervical extension induces anterior migration of the nucleus pulposus away from the posterior disc margin and may have a clinical effect on discogenic neck pain resulting from internal disc disruption.

Running and Cooling Strategies

An investigation, published in the Journal of Sports Science, compared the effects of external pre-cooling and mid-exercise cooling methods on running time trial performance and associated physiological responses.

Nine trained male runners completed familiarisation and three randomised 5 km running time trials on a non-motorised treadmill in the heat (33°C).

The trials included pre-cooling by cold-water immersion (CWI), mid-exercise cooling by intermittent facial water spray (SPRAY), and a control of no cooling (CON).

Temperature, cardiorespiratory, muscular activation, and perceptual responses were measured as well as blood concentrations of lactate and prolactin.

Performance time was significantly faster with cold-water immersion and SPRAY compared to CON.

Both cooling strategies significantly reduced forehead temperatures and thermal sensation, and increased muscle activation. Only pre-cooling significantly lowered rectal temperature both pre-exercise and throughout exercise, and reduced sweat rate.

Both cooling strategies improved performance by a similar magnitude, and are ergogenic for athletes. The observed physiological changes suggest some involvement of central and psychophysiological mechanisms of performance improvement.

CMS Issues Notice about Chiropractic Services

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the CMS, recently issues the following posting on their web site related to Chiropractic Services and Error Rates.

The CERT program’s review of claims for chiropractic services has consistently yielded high improper payment rates. The majority of chiropractic services claims were the result of insufficient documentation, such as:

  • Documentation submitted did not adequately describe the service defined by the billed procedure code or modifier
  • Treatment plan was not submitted
  • Signature on notes was illegible

The article goes on to discuss Documentation Requirements.  For Example, for the initial chiropractic visit, the documentation must include the following information:

  • Patient history
  • Description of present illness and evaluation of musculoskeletal/nervous system through physical exam
  • Diagnosis (primary diagnosis must be subluxation)
  • Treatment plan
  • Date of initial treatment

Surf to our Show Notes for links to this article, which further discusses documentation for the Physical Examination, Subsequent Visit, etc., along with a WebCast discussing Improving Documentation of Chiropractic Services.

Soil inoculation steers restoration of terrestrial ecosystems

A study published in the journal Nature Plants looked at the Microbiome in soil.

Many natural ecosystems have been degraded because of human activities and need to be restored so that biodiversity is protected.

However, restoration can take decades and restoration activities are often unsuccessful because of abiotic constraints (for example, eutrophication, acidification) and unfavourable biotic conditions (for example, competition or adverse soil community composition).

A key question is what manageable factors prevent transition from degraded to restored ecosystems and what interventions are required for successful restoration.

Experiments have shown that the soil community is an important driver of plant community development, suggesting that manipulation of the soil community is key to successful restoration of terrestrial ecosystems.

The impact of soil inoculation on plant and soil community composition was most pronounced when the topsoil layer was removed, whereas effects were less strong, but still significant, when the soil inocula were introduced into intact topsoil.

Therefore, soil inoculation is a powerful tool to both restore disturbed terrestrial ecosystems and steer plant community development.

A commentary on Chiropractic and Prescription Drugs

There is a growing desire within the chiropractic profession to expand the scope of practice to include limited medication prescription rights for the treatment of spine-related and other musculoskeletal conditions.

Such prescribing rights have been successfully incorporated into a number of chiropractic jurisdictions worldwide. If limited to a musculoskeletal scope, medication prescription rights have the potential to change the present role of chiropractors within the healthcare system by paving the way for practitioners to become comprehensive specialists in the conservative management of spine / musculoskeletal disorders.

However, if the chiropractic profession wishes to lobby to expand the scope of practice to include limited prescriptive authority, several issues must first be addressed. These would include changes to chiropractic education and legislation, as well as consideration of how such privileges could impact the chiropractic profession on a more theoretical basis.

In this commentary, published in BioMed Central, the authors examine the arguments in favour of and against limited medication prescription rights for chiropractors and discuss the implications of such privileges for the profession.

Cervical Joint Manipulation and Motion Palpation

The aim of a recent study was to determine the effect of cervical posture manipulation, based on passive motion analysis (MBPMA) and general mobilization, on cervical lordosis, forward head posture (FHP), and cervical ROM in university students with problems in cervical posture and range of motion (ROM).

The Subjects were 40 university students in their 20s who displayed problems in cervical posture and ROM; they were divided into an manipulation, based on passive motion analysis group and a mobilization group.

The study concluded that manipulation, based on passive motion analysis can be utilized as an effective method for decreasing FHP and improving cervical lordosis and cervical ROM.

Neck Pain and Static Neck Flexion

Neck pain is a common musculoskeletal disorder, especially among skilled workers who must keep their necks in a flexed position frequently during the day.

A 2015 study published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, investigated changes in cervical flexion-relaxation phenomenon parameters after sustained neck flexion.

The participants were 40 healthy subjects grouped by gender (20 females, 20 males). They were exposed to static neck flexion at the full angle of cervical flexion for 10 min.

Each subject underwent three trials of cervical flexion and re-extension before and after this period. Differences in onset and cessation angle of flexion-relaxation phenomenon, maximum neck flexion angle, amplitude of neck muscle activation and flexion-relaxation ratio were evaluated.

It was concluded that 10 min of static flexion results in a delay in flexion-relaxation phenomenon and a shortened silence period. Also the cervical erector spinae muscles are required to be active longer and generate more activity.

These neuromuscular changes may be a risk factor for neck pain.

The Aging Brain and Physical Activity

Physical activity (PA) can be neuroprotective and reduce the risk for Alzheimer’s disease (AD).

In assessing physical activity, caloric expenditure is a proxy marker reflecting the sum total of multiple physical activity types conducted by an individual.

A recent study was published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease to assess caloric expenditure, as a proxy marker of Physical activity, as a predictive measure of gray matter (GM) volumes in the normal and cognitively impaired elderly persons.

Higher energy output, from a variety of physical activity types, was associated with larger gray matter volumes in frontal, temporal, and parietal lobes, as well as hippocampus, thalamus, and basal ganglia.

High levels of caloric expenditure moderated neurodegeneration-associated volume loss in the precuneus, posterior cingulate, and cerebellar vermis.

The study concluded that increasing energy output from a variety of physical activities is related to larger gray matter volumes in the elderly, regardless of cognitive status.

Discuss all Exercise related questions with your Qualified Healthcare Professional.

Radiographic Progression of Rheumatoid Arthritis Flare Ups

Disease flares are common in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and are related to structural damage. However, few data on the impact of flares reported by patients on radiographic progression are available.

The aim of a recent study published in the journal Arthritis Research and Therapy, was to investigate whether overall flares (OF), self-reported flares (SRF) and short flares assessed at the visit (SF) predict radiographic progression in rheumatoid arthritis patients in DAS28 (28-joint disease activity score) remission.

The study concluded that overall flares and self-reported flares are predictors of structural damage.

Flares assessed at the visit, short flares, do not impact on radiographic progression as they might underestimate the actual number of flares.

And Now for some news ….

 

 

Trunk Stability and Sports-related testing protocols

Trunk/core stability is considered a key component of training programs, because it could contribute to prevention of low-back and lower-limb injuries and to sports performance.

Based on the specificity principle, sports-related trunk stability tests would be required in elite sports performance. However, there may be some generic qualities underlying trunk stability that can be assessed with nonspecific protocols, which are broadly used in sport and rehabilitation.

To assess whether specific tests are needed in a high-performance context, the authors of a study published in the journal Gait and Posture, analyzed the influence of specialization in sports with large but qualitatively different balance control demands (judo and kayaking) on trunk stability and compared high-performance athletes with recreational athletes without a specific training history.

The study concluded that specific-sport training induces specific trunk stability adaptations, which are not revealed through nonspecific tests.

Role of Core Stability and Function

A study in the journal Sports Medicine looked at the importance of function of the central core of the body for stabilisation and force generation in all sports activities is being increasingly recognised.

‘Core stability’ is seen as being pivotal for efficient biomechanical function to maximize force generation and minimise joint loads in all types of activities ranging from running to throwing. However, there is less clarity about what exactly constitutes ‘the core’, either anatomically or physiologically, and physical evaluation of core function is also variable.

‘Core stability’ is defined as the ability to control the position and motion of the trunk over the pelvis to allow optimum production, transfer and control of force and motion to the terminal segment in integrated athletic activities.

Core muscle activity is best understood as the pre-programmed integration of local, single-joint muscles and multi-joint muscles to provide stability and produce motion.

This results in proximal stability for distal mobility, a proximal to distal patterning of generation of force, and the creation of interactive moments that move and protect distal joints.

Evaluation of the core should be dynamic, and include evaluation of the specific functions (trunk control over the planted leg) and directions of motions (three-planar activity). Rehabilitation should include the restoring of the core itself, but also include the core as the base for extremity function.
