And Now for some news ….


Pediatric Back Pain – Diagnostic Algorithm

Back pain in the pediatric population is common. History and a thorough physical examination and a systematic work-up approach are key components to guide the physician in evaluating the possible causes of pain and providing appropriate treatment.

The main aim of a recent review, published in the journal Orthopäde was to develop an algorithmic approach to assist physicians in the assessment of pediatric back pain.

A comprehensive review of prevalence, differential diagnoses and proper management of pediatric back pain are also presented.

Conclusions found that a well-defined strategy in the diagnostic process is needed in approaching children/adolescents with back pain.

This would have the benefit of minimizing costs, unnecessary tests and child/family anxiety as well as increasing the likelihood of early diagnosis and proper treatment.

Computer methods in biomechanics and biomedical engineering

The biomechanical effects of intervertebral discs and facet joints degeneration on the cervical spine are essential to understanding the mechanisms of spinal disorders to improve pathological and clinical treatment.

In a recent study published in Computer Methods in Biomechanical and Biomedical Engineering, the biomechanical effects of a progressively degenerated C5-C6 segment on the human lower cervical spine are determined by a detailed simulation of intervertebral disc degeneration.

With progressive degeneration in the C5-C6 segment, the range of motion of degenerated and normal segments decreases in all postures.

Intradiscal pressure of the degenerated segment decreases but increases in normal segments of degenerated segment C5-C6, and facet joint forces increase at both degenerated and normal segments.

This study emphasizes that the degenerated disc alters the degenerated and normal segments’ motion and loading patterns.

The abnormal increase in facet joint force in the degenerated models threatened to accelerate the degeneration in the normal segments.

And Now for some news ….

Lumbosacral Transitional Vertebra-Related Low Back Pain

A recent study, published in the Asian Spine Journal, aimed to determine if any association of lumbosacral transitional vertebra with LBP exists. If so, the association of the level of physical activity and presence of other spinal disorders with LSTV-related LBP was determined.

The cause of LBP has been linked to proximal level disc degeneration, arthritic pseudoarticulation between lumbosacral transitional vertebra and the sacral ala, facet joint degeneration, and nerve root compression due to a broadened transverse process.

Lumbosacral transitional vertebra (LSTV) is a congenital anomaly of the spine that arises because of mutations in the Hox genes, giving rise to sacralization (fifth lumbar vertebra shows assimilation to the sacrum) and lumbarization (first sacral vertebra shows lumbar configuration).

Conclusions found that the presence of lumbosacral transitional vertebra was associated with an increased prevalence of LBP. This association was probably due to the confounding effect of other spinal disorders.

The level of occupational physical activity was not associated with LSTV-related LBP.

The authors speculate that advanced age and female sex caused the spurious association of LSTV with LBP in the study, rendering LSTV-related LBP controversial in published literature.

And Now for some news ….

NY State Opioid Legislation.

The NY State Assembly, Bill A273, is considering legislation for a practitioner to consider and prescribe non-opioid treatment alternatives for treatment of neuromusculoskeletal conditions.

Wording for this bill includes:

“WHEN A PATIENT SEEKS  TREATMENT  FOR  ANY NEUROMUSCULOSKELETAL CONDITION  THAT  CAUSES  PAIN,  WHERE A PRACTITIONER CONSIDERS AN OPIOID TREATMENT, THE PRACTITIONER SHALL CONSIDER, DISCUSS  WITH  THE  PATIENT, AND,  AS  APPROPRIATE,  REFER OR PRESCRIBE NON-OPIOID TREATMENT ALTERNATIVES, BASED ON  THE  PRACTITIONER’S  CLINICAL  JUDGMENT  AND  FOLLOWING GENERALLY  ACCEPTED  NATIONAL  PROFESSIONAL OR TREATMENT GUIDELINES, AND CONSISTENT WITH  PATIENT  PREFERENCE  AND  CONSENT,  BEFORE  STARTING  A PATIENT  ON OPIOID TREATMENT.”

According to the NY Senate’s web site, the bill has passed both the NY Senate and Assembly.

Surf to our Show Notes for a link to this bill – https://www.nysenate.gov/legislation/bills/2021/A273

Combining Clinical Exams to Better Predict Lumbar Radiographic Instability

Several clinical tests have been proposed to diagnose lumbar instability, but their accuracy is still in question.

The primary purpose of a recent study published in the journal Musculoskeletal Science and Practice, was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of the clinical lumbar instability tests. The secondary goal was to design a model to detect lumbar instability.

Highlights from the study found that:

  • Lumbar instability tests were not accurate enough to detect lumbar instability.
  • Patients with lower weight are more prone to lumbar instability.
  • Lumbar lordosis can be a predictor of lumbar instability.

Conclusions found that each individual test had very small to no power in discriminating patients with lumbar instability. The developed model just slightly improved the accuracy of radiological instability detection.

Prevalence of Optimal Metabolic Health in American Adults

Several guidelines for cardiometabolic risk factor identification and management have been released in recent years, but there are no estimates of current prevalence of metabolic health among adults in the United States.

The authors of a 2019 study published in the journal Metabolic Syndrome and Related Disorders, estimated the proportion of American adults with optimal cardiometabolic health, using different guidelines.

The purpose of this research is to determine the number and proportion of American adults who have optimal levels of each of five traditional cardiometabolic risk factors in the absence of pharmaceutical treatment.

The authors consider metabolic health to be related to, but not the same as, the absence of metabolic syndrome.

Conclusions found that Prevalence of metabolic health in American adults is alarmingly low, even in normal weight individuals. The large number of people not achieving optimal levels of risk factors, even in low-risk groups, has serious implications for public health.

And Now for some news ….

Minimal-Dose Resistance Training for Improving Muscle Mass, Strength, and Function

Resistance training (RT) is the only non-pharmacological intervention known to consistently improve, and therefore offset age-related declines in, skeletal muscle mass, strength, and power.

Resistance training is also associated with various health benefits that are underappreciated compared with the perceived benefits of aerobic-based exercise.

For example, Resistance training participation is associated with reduced all-cause and cancer-related mortality and reduced incidence of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and symptoms of both anxiety and depression.

Across the lifespan, declines in strength and power occur up to eight times faster than the loss of muscle mass, and are more strongly associated with functional impairments and risks of morbidity and mortality.

Strategies to maximise healthspan should therefore arguably focus more on improving or maintaining muscle strength and power than on increasing muscle mass per se.

Accumulating evidence suggests that minimal doses of Resistance training, characterised by lower session volumes than in traditional Resistance training guidelines, together with either:

  • higher training intensities/loads performed at lower frequencies (i.e. low-volume, high-load Resistance training)
  • lower training intensities/loads performed at higher frequencies and with minimal-to-no equipment (i.e. resistance ‘exercise snacking’), can improve strength and functional ability in younger and older adults.

In addition, brief but frequent minimal-dose Resistance training approaches (i.e. resistance ‘exercise snacking’) may provide additional benefits for interrupting sedentary behaviour patterns associated with increased cardiometabolic risk.

Compared to traditional approaches, minimal-dose Resistance training may also limit negative affective responses, such as increased discomfort and lowered enjoyment, both of which are associated with higher training volumes and may negatively influence exercise adherence.

This narrative review, published in the journal Sports Medicine, aims to summarise the evidence for minimal-dose Resistance training as a strategy for preserving muscle strength and functional ability across the lifespan, and to discuss practical models and considerations for the application of minimal-dose Resistance training approaches.

Cervical and Post-Concussion Symptoms

A recent study was published in JMPT to describe individual long-term outcomes of people with persistent symptoms following a concussion who received neck treatment as part of multidisciplinary concussion care.

A secondary objective was to report on how participants describe the outcomes of neck treatment.

Conclusions found that long-term follow-up of individuals receiving neck treatment shows improvement across a range of patient reported outcomes, yet highlights frequent recurrence of symptoms.

Neck treatment can play a valuable role in people’s recovery that extends beyond local effects on the neck.

Howard Wolinksy Webinar

COT Contributor Howard Wolinsky is holding a free webinar for ACA at on the Wilk et al. v. AMA et al trial.

I plan to dedicate my program to Chet.

Registration can be found at – https://bit.ly/3rtbYWC

Join us live at 1 pm Eastern on Thursday, April 21. Or watch the video.

As a reminder, Howard has written a book on the history of the Wilk et al. v. AMA et al. case: “Contain and Eliminate: The AMA’s Conspiracy to Destroy Chiropractic.”

It’s a story of the Chiropractic profession and how it had to fight for a place in the sun.

The book is a courtroom drama. It’s a tale of spies who infiltrated the AMA, broke into their lawyer’s offices, the exposes of “Sore Throat” that led to a dozen Congressional investigations, DC Chester Wilk’s brave stand, attorney George McAndrew’s revenge on the AMA for the persecution of his DC father, the biggest FBI raid in its history, a year-long manhunt for a Scientology spy etc.

Patient Perceptions of Discomfort Pain and Stiffness

While pain is often the focus of clinical interventions, other clinical outcomes (e.g., discomfort, stiffness) might also contribute to patients’ functionality and well-being.

Although researchers and clinicians may view discomfort, pain and stiffness as different constructs, it remains unclear how patients perceive and differentiate between these constructs.

Therefore, the purpose of a recent study, published in BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, was to explore patients’ perceptions of pain, discomfort, and stiffness.

Chiropractic patients were invited to complete an online cross-sectional survey and describe what ‘discomfort’, ‘pain’ and ‘stiffness’ meant to them using their own words.

Conclusions found that Patients perceived discomfort, pain and stiffness as different, yet overlapping constructs.

This preliminary work advances knowledge of how patients conceptualize these constructs, contributing to better understanding of what patients mean when reporting these experiences, potentially improving the clinician-patient communication.

And Now for some news ….

Gut Disc Axis and LBP

Low back pain (LBP), a widely prevalent and costly disease around the world, is mainly caused by intervertebral disc (IVD) degeneration (IDD).

Although numerous factors may trigger this degenerative process, microbiome dysbiosis has recently been implicated as one of the likely causes.

However, the exact relationship between the microbiome and IDD is not well understood.

A recent review published in the European Spine Journal, summarizes the potential mechanisms and discusses microbiome dysbiosis’s possible influence on IDD and LBP.

Conclusions found that future studies on microbiome, fungi and viruses in IDD is necessary to revolutionize our thinking about their possible role in the development of IVD diseases.

Furthermore, it is believed that inflammation inhibition and interruption of amplification of cascade reaction in IVD by targeting the gut and IVD microbiome is worthwhile for the treatment of IDD and LBP.

Foot Mobilization and Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome

Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) is defined as pain around the patella while performing activities such as squats, running, and climbing steps.

One of the inherent risk factors for Patellofemoral pain syndrome is an excessively pronated foot posture.

The aim of a recent study, published in the journal BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, was to investigate the effect of foot intervention, talonavicular joint mobilization (TJM) and foot core strengthening (FCS), on Patellofemoral pain syndrome.

The primary outcomes were pain while the secondary outcomes were lower extremity function, valgus knee, foot posture, and muscle activity ratio measured at baseline, after 12 sessions, and at the 4-week follow-up.

Conclusions found that this study is a novel approach to the potential impact of foot interventions on patellofemoral pain.

Foot intervention including talonavicular joint mobilization and foot core strengthening is effective for pain control and function improvement in individuals with Patellofemoral pain syndrome.

Lumbar Myofascial Release Techniques and LBP

A recent article in the Journal of Modern Rehabilitation was recently published to evaluate the effect of lumbar Myofascial release techniques on clinical outcomes of Non-specific low back pain and thickness of the lumbar fascia tissue.


Low back pain severity and thickness of the lumbar fascia tissue were assessed by ultrasonographic imaging before and after the myofascial release techniques.

Conclusions found that improvements in the outcome measures suggest that lumbar myofascial release may be effective in subjects with non-specific low back pain.

Following myofascial release, the thickness of the lumbar fascia and low back pain has decreased.

Pitching Mechanics and Accuracy

A recent study in the American Journal of Sports Medicine was published to differentiate high- and low-accuracy professional pitchers by full-body kinematic and upper extremity kinetic parameters.

Conclusions found that professional pitchers with increased accuracy experienced decreased throwing arm kinetics. These pitchers had increased lead knee extension at later stages of the pitch, potentially providing more stable engagement with the ground and transference of kinetic energy to the upper extremities.

Professional pitchers can consider increasing lead knee extension at the final stages of the pitch to improve the accuracy of their throws and mitigate elbow varus torque.
