And Now for some news ….
NJ Health Care Transparency Act
In 2020, the Medical Society of New Jersey introduced legislation (S-2465) that helps ensure patients know the education, training and licensure of their health care provider.
Under the “New Jersey Health Care Transparency Act,” all health care professionals will be required to wear a name tag during all patient encounters, clearly identifying the type of license they hold. Health care professionals will also have to clearly display their education, training and licensure in their office.
The new bill will also promote “truth in advertising” among health care professionals, requiring that any advertisements placed or professional websites created by a medical professional do not promote services beyond what the professional is legally permitted to provide.
These advertisements or websites must be free of deceptive or misleading information and must identify the professional license clearly.
Discuss specifics with your State and Local Associations.

SMT and Motor Unit Behavior
Over recent years, a growing body of research has highlighted the neural plastic effects of spinal manipulation on the central nervous system.
Recently, it has been shown that spinal manipulation improved outcomes, such as maximum voluntary force and limb joint position sense, reflecting improved sensorimotor integration and processing.
A recent study aimed to further evaluate how spinal manipulation can alter neuromuscular activity.
High density electromyography (HD sEMG) signals from the tibialis anterior were recorded and decomposed in order to study motor unit changes in 14 subjects following spinal manipulation or a passive movement control session in a crossover study design.
The study found that a significant decrease in the conduction velocity (p = 0.01) was observed during the “ramp and maintain” condition at 5% MVC after spinal manipulation.
A decrease in conduction velocity suggests that spinal manipulation alters motor unit recruitment patterns with an increased recruitment of lower threshold, lower twitch torque motor units.
