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.

Texas Chiropractors Win Landmark Court Decision

According to the Texas Chiropractic Association, on February 2, 2021, the Texas Supreme Court delivered a landmark victory to Texas chiropractors on January 29, ending a decade-long dispute with the Texas Medical Association (TMA) over the role of the nervous system in chiropractic practice with its ruling in Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners et al v. Texas Medical Association.

The Supreme Court unanimously upheld the Board’s definitions of the “musculoskeletal system” and “subluxation complex” that referenced nerves and, in a split decision, upheld the Board’s rule pertaining to vestibular ocular nystagmus testing (VONT).

Thoracic SMT and Autonomic Control

A study in the journal Spine was recently published to compare the immediate effect of manual therapy at the upper thoracic spine on the cardiovascular autonomic control of patients with musculoskeletal pain.

The study included 59 patients with musculoskeletal pain enrolled at an outpatient clinic. Participants were randomly assigned to spinal manipulation, myofascial manipulation, or placebo administered to the upper thoracic region.

Resting heart rate variability provided indexes of the cardiac autonomic control, and the blood pressure response to the cold pressor test as a proxy of the sympathetic responsiveness to a stressor stimulus.

The study concluded that in patients with musculoskeletal pain, spinal manipulation on the upper thoracic spine led to an immediate improvement in the resting cardiac autonomic control without an effect on the blood pressure responsiveness to a sympathoexcitatory stimulus.

Myofascial manipulation or placebo did not change cardiovascular autonomic control.

And Now for some news ….

Lordosis and Cervical and Shoulder Retraction Exercise in Patients

A recent study was published in the Annals of Rehabilitation Medicine to explore if the modified cervical and shoulder retraction exercise program restores cervical lordosis and reduces neck pain in patients with loss of cervical lordosis.

This study was a retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data.

The parameters of cervical alignment (4-line Cobb’s angle, posterior tangent method, and sagittal vertical axis) were measured from the lateral radiograph.

The conclusion of the study found that modified cervical and shoulder retraction exercise program tends to improve cervical lordosis and neck pain in patients with loss of cervical lordosis.

Disc Degeneration of Young Low Back Pain Patients

The aim of a recent study published in the journal Spine, was to investigate whether early lumbar disc degeneration (DD) in young low back pain (LBP) patients predicts progression of degenerative changes, pain, or disability in a 30-year follow-up.

MRI is an accurate method for studying degenerative changes in intervertebral discs. Decreased signal intensity (SI) can be used as indication of decreased water content. Long-term prognosis of early DD remains unclear.

In an earlier study, 75 conscripts aged 20 years with LBP had their lumbar spine examined by MRI. At a follow-up of 30 years, the subjects were contacted; 35 of 69 filled a pain and disability questionnaire, and 26 of 35 were also reexamined clinically and by MRI. The images were evaluated for decreased signal intensity  and other degenerative changes.

The conclusion stated that in young LBP patients, early degeneration in lumbar discs predicts progressive degenerative changes in the respective discs, but not pain, disability, or clinical symptoms.

And Now for some news ….

Clinical Utility of Routine Spinal Radiographs by Chiropractors

When indicated by signs or symptoms of potentially serious underlying pathology (red flags), chiropractors can use radiographs to inform their diagnosis.

In the absence of red flags, the clinical utility of routine or repeat radiographs to assess the structure and function of the spine is controversial.

A recent study was published in Chiropractic & Manual Therapies to determine the diagnostic and therapeutic utility of routine or repeat radiographs (in the absence of red flags) of the cervical, thoracic or lumbar spine for the functional or structural evaluation of the spine.

The author’s conclusion found no evidence that the use of routine or repeat radiographs to assess the function or structure of the spine, in the absence of red flags, improves clinical outcomes and benefits patients.

Given the inherent risks of ionizing radiation, we recommend that chiropractors do not use radiographs for the routine and repeat evaluation of the structure and function of the spine.

HIPAA Penalty Changes

One of the ongoing problems facing healthcare organizations today is HIPAA breaches. Cyber attacks are occurring with increasing regularity and placing an even greater burden on already overwhelmed healthcare providers.

On January 5, 2021, H.R. 7898 was signed into law in the USA. This new law modifies the HITECH Act such that when an organization experiences a breach, fines and/or penalties may be reduced if (for at least a year) they have instituted “recognized security practices” as defined within the law.

Additionally, there may also be reductions in the length of an audit. It should be noted that if the covered entity was NOT in compliance with these practices, HHS can NOT increase audit lengths, fines, and penalties.

This new law is to be effective “as if included in the enactment of the 21st Century Cures Act (Public Law 114-255).” It should be noted that implementation of the 21st Century Cures Act was delayed again in relation to the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency.

There are different implementation dates within the Cures Act for different provisions of the law.

At the time of publication, it appears that the effective date for H.R. 7898 provisions will be April 5, 2021 when the information blocking and communication requirements take effect.

And Now for some news ….

RSS Info – In this edition of HealthBeat, we discuss SMT vs Physical Therapy for LBP Treatment, And Finally, a Story about Lumbar Fusion and Chronic Low Back Pain.

SMT vs Physical Therapy for LBP Treatment

Low back pain (LBP) is a pandemic and costly musculoskeletal condition in the United States (U.S.).

Patients with LBP may endure surgery, injections, and expensive visits to emergency departments. Some suggest that using physical therapy (PT) or chiropractic in the earlier stage of LBP reduces the utilization of expensive health services and lowers the treatment costs.

Given that there are costs and benefits with each of these treatments, the remaining question is in a short period of time which of these treatments is optimal.

The purpose of a recent study, published in the journal Healthcare, was to investigate the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic versus PT in the U.S.

The findings showed that the total average cost in the chiropractic group was $48.56 lower than the PT group. The findings also showed that the daily adjusted life years (DALY) in the chiropractic group was higher than the PT group.

Chiropractic care was shown to be a cost-effective alternative compared with PT for adults with at least three weeks of LBP over six months.

Lumbar Fusion Necessary for Chronic Low Back Pain

The authors of a recent study review sought to evaluate the efficacy and safety of lumbar fusion versus nonoperative care for the treatment of chronic low back pain associated with degenerative disk disease.

Conclusions found that the present meta-analysis determined that fusion surgery was no better than nonoperative treatment in terms of the pain and disability outcomes at either short- or long-term follow-up.

It is necessary for clinicians to weigh the risk of complications associated with fusion surgery against additional surgeries after nonoperative treatment.

Considering lax patient inclusion criteria in the existing randomized clinical trials, the result needs to be further confirmed by high-quality research with stricter selection criteria in the future.

And Now for some news ….

Cervical Proprioception and Axial Spondyloarthritis

Proprioception is the awareness of body parts and includes joint position sense, kinesthesia, and sense of force.

Cervical spine is one of the major affected areas in axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA), and is an essential region for proprioceptive receptors.

A recent study was published in Musculoskeletal Science and Practice to investigate the cervical joint proprioceptive accuracy by using cervical joint positioning error (JPE) method in patients with axial spondyloarthritis and healthy controls.

Time since diagnosis, symptom duration, spinal mobility, functional status, quality of life, disease activity, and pain were evaluated in axial spondyloarthritis patients. 

Conclusions stated that cervical proprioception accuracy is impaired in patients with axial spondyloarthritis.

It seems that controlling disease activity by using appropriate “treatment” <COT HealthBeat Edit> may have a positive effect on cervical proprioception accuracy.

Discuss all Cervical Arthritis treatment options with your Qualified Healthcare Provider, such as your Doctor of Chiropractic.

CMS Final Rules for E/M Reporting

According to a recent ChiroCode email, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the CMS, released their final rule and now some adjustments in our offices may be required.

While CMS stated that they were adopting the AMA guidelines for Evaluation and Management (E/M) office or other outpatient services, they did make a few changes. 

Some changes include:

A code for Prolonged Services.  Providers will need to compare to use of prior codes.

Related to Chiropractic, there are some payers which state that they follow the Medicare guidelines. Therefore, you will need to check with individual payers and find out if they will be requiring these new codes.

Visit Complexity Add-on – this code is aimed at providers managing more complex patient conditions, either a single serious condition or a complex condition. While CMS is not limiting this to certain specialties, they do anticipate that it will be most common in primary care.

Motor control training of deep neck flexors with pressure biofeedback

The effects of motor control training with pressure biofeedback on neck pain and disability of patients with neck pain is a field that has drawn a lot of research interest.

Therefore, the aim of a recent study published in the journal Musculoskeletal Science and Practice, was to conduct, for the first time, a systematic review and meta-analysis for examining whether motor control training of deep neck flexors with pressure biofeedback improves pain and disability in patients with neck pain.

The study concluded that motor control training of deep neck flexors with pressure biofeedback is an effective intervention for improving pain intensity and disability in patients with neck pain and preferable to strength-endurance training of cervical muscles.

SMT Alters Brain Activity in Patients With Chronic Low Back Pain

Spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) helps to reduce chronic low back pain (cLBP).

However, the underlying mechanism of pain relief and the neurological response to SMT remains unclear.

The authors utilized brain functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) upon the application of a real-time spot pressure mechanical stimulus to assess the effects of SMT on patients with cLBP.

In conclusion, the authors observed alterations in brain activity in regions of the default mode network in patients with cLBP after SMT.

These findings suggest the potential utility of the default mode network as a neuroimaging biomarker for pain management in patients with cLBP.

And Now for some news ….

Transforming low back pain care delivery in the US

Low back pain (LBP) continues to be a challenging condition to manage effectively.

Recent guideline recommendations stress providing non-pharmacological care early, limiting diagnostic testing, and reducing exposure to opioid pain medications.

However, there has been little uptake of these guideline recommendations by providers, patients or health systems, resulting in care that is neither effective nor safe.

A recent paper, published in the journal Pain, describes the framework for an evidence-based pathway that would transform service delivery for LBP in the United States by creating changes that facilitate the delivery of guideline adherent care.

An evidence informed clinical service pathway would be intentionally structured to include;

  • direct linkages to community and population based resources that facilitate self-management,
  • foundational LBP care that is appropriate for all seeking care,
  • individualized LBP care for those who have persistent symptoms, and
  • specialized LBP care for instances when advanced diagnostics and intensive treatments are indicated.

There is an urgent need to transform LBP care by optimizing clinical care pathways focused on multiple opportunities for non-pharmacological treatments, carefully considering escalation of care, and facilitating self-management.

Such approaches have the potential to increase patient access to guideline adherent LBP care as an alternative to opioids, unwarranted diagnostic tests, and unnecessary surgery.

Fat Infiltration in Cervical Extensor Muscles on Cervical Lordosis and Neck Pain

Weakness of cervical extensor muscles causes loss of cervical lordosis, which could also cause neck pain.

The aim of a study published in Clinical Orthopedic Surgery, was to investigate the impact of fat infiltration in cervical extensor muscles on cervical lordosis and neck pain.

Fifty-six patients who suffered from neck pain were included in this study. Fat infiltration in cervical extensor muscles was measured at each level of C2-3 and C6-7 using axial magnetic resonance imaging. 

Fat infiltration in cervical extensor muscles was associated with high visual analog scale scores at both levels. At C2-3, there was a negative correlation between fat infiltration of the cervical extensor muscles and cervical lordosis.

The results of the study suggest that fat infiltration in the upper cervical extensor muscles has relevance to the loss of cervical lordosis, whereas fat infiltration in the lower cervical extensor muscles is associated with cervical functional disability.

And Now for some news ….




Respiratory Disorders and LBP

Muscles, such as the diaphragm, play a key role in both respiration and spinal control. Therefore, diaphragm dysfunctions are often related to low back pain (LBP).

However, few is known on the association between the presence of LBP and the presence of respiratory disorders (RD).

A recent Manual Therapy journal article was published to perform a systematic review on the relation between RD and LBP.

The conclusion stated that this is the first study providing an overview of the literature on the relation between LBP and RD.

Immunological, biomechanical, psychosocial and socio-economic factors might explain this correlation.

Smoking is likely to contribute.

Future studies must reveal the causative relationship.

Hip Exercise and Patellofemoral Pain

Patellofemoral pain (PFP) is one of the most common lower extremity conditions seen in clinical practice.

Current evidence shows that there are hip strength deficits, delayed onset and shorter activation of gluteus medius in people with PFP.

The aim of a recent review published in Manual Therapy, was to systematically review the literature to investigate the outcome of hip exercise in people with PFP.

The conclusion stated that the evidence consistently demonstrated that both hip strengthening and neuromuscular exercise has a beneficial effect on pain and function in people with PFP.

Strengthening exercise predominantly addressed abductor and external rotator muscle groups.

A consensus from PFP researchers for standardization of methodology is recommended to enable meaningful comparison between trials.

And Now for some news ….

Perceived Injustice and Pain-Related Outcomes

A growing body of literature shows that justice-related appraisals are significant determinants of pain-related outcomes and prolonged trajectories of recovery.

The authors conducted a systematic review of the literature assessing the relationship between perceived injustice and pain-related outcomes in individuals with musculoskeletal pain.

This systematic review summarizes the current evidence for the association between perceived injustice and pain-related outcomes.

There is strong evidence that perceived injustice is associated with pain intensity, disability-related variables, and mental health outcomes. Implications and directions for future research are discussed.

Predicting who responds to spinal manipulative therapy 

Spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) is among the nonpharmacologic interventions that has been recommended in clinical guidelines for patients with low back pain, however, some patients appear to benefit substantially more from SMT than others.

Several investigations have examined potential factors to modify patients’ responses prior to SMT application.

The objective of this study, published in PLOS One, was to determine if the baseline prediction of SMT responders can be improved through the use of a restricted, non-pragmatic methodology, established variables of responder status, and newly developed physical measures observed to change with SMT.

It is possible to predict response to treatment before application of SMT in low back pain patients.

The author’s model may benefit both patients and clinicians by reducing the time needed to re-evaluate an initial trial of care.
