And Now for some news ….

Low Back Pain and Cooled Radiofrequency Therapy

Two studies recently published in Pain Medicine show the efficacy of minimally invasive cooled radiofrequency for treating discogenic and sacroiliac joint low back pain, according to a press release from the manufacturer of the products that were studied.

Radiofrequency neurotomy is recognized as an effective minimally invasive treatment for chronic pain originating in the facet joints.

But in order to deliver relief for patients, successful radiofrequency lesioning requires reaching the pain source.

Investigators enrolled 59 patients in the first randomized study — 29 patients received cooled radiofrequency treatment with intradiscal biacuplasty (IDB) and 30 patients served as controls.

The results showed that, compared to controls, there were significant decreases in pain, disability and opioid use in the IDB group.

The second study, which was conducted in Europe, was a retrospective chart review of 126 patients with sacroiliac joint pain who were treated with cooled radiofrequency. In the study’s 1 year results, 67% of patients stopped or decreased their opioid use, 48% of patients had significant decreases in pain scores and 85% of patients noted an improved quality of life after treatment.

Hypermobile Joints in Children

Children were twice as likely to develop musculoskeletal pain in certain joints when those joints were hypermobile, according to study results in Arthritis Care & Research.

According to the study’s author this “study provides the first prospective evidence that adolescents who display joint hypermobility are at increased risk of developing musculoskeletal pain as they get older, particularly in the shoulder, knee, ankle or feet.”

The results showed 4.6% of children had hypermobile joints by age 14 and 45% of them reported joint pain that lasted one day or more at the age of 18 years. Among the participants, 16.1% had low back pain, 8.9% had upper back pain, 8.9% had neck pain, 9.5% had shoulder pain, 8.8% had knee pain and 6.8% had foot and ankle pain.

For the spine, hands, elbows and hips, investigators found no correlation between hypermobility and musculoskeletal pain.

According to the author of the study, “Further investigation of increased joint pain in teens is warranted to determine if the long-term effects of joint hypermobility puts them at risk for developing osteoarthritis later in life.”

Stress and Physical Activity

Children who undertake more physical activity (PA) not only have more optimal physical health but also enjoy better mental health. However, the pathways by which PA affects well-being remain unclear.

A recent study published in The Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism,  examined whether objectively measured daytime physical activity was associated with diurnal hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical axis (HPAA) activity and HPAA responses to psychosocial stress.

Physical activity was assessed with wrist-worn accelerometers. Overall physical activity and percentage of time spent in vigorous physical activity (VPA) were categorized by sex into thirds. Salivary cortisol was measured diurnally and in response to the Trier Social Stress Test for Children.

The study concluded that these results suggest that children with lower levels of daytime physical activity have higher hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical axis activity in response to stress. These findings may offer insight into the pathways of physical activity on physical and mental well-being.

Remember to discuss all Exercise related issues with your Qualified Health Care Professional.

And Now for some news ….

Spinal fusion for chronic low back pain

Spinal fusion is a common but controversial treatment for chronic low back pain (LBP) with outcomes similar to those of programmed conservative care. To improve the results of fusion, tests for patient selection are used in clinical practice.

A recent study the Spine Journal was published to determine the prognostic accuracy of tests for patient selection that are currently used in clinical practice to identify those patients with chronic LBP who will benefit from spinal fusion.

The authors reviewed studies that compared the results of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), provocative discography, facet joint blocks, orthosis immobilization, and temporary external fixation with the clinical outcome of patients who underwent spinal fusion for chronic LBP.

The Outcome Measures were to determine the prognostic accuracy of tests to predict the clinical outcome of spinal fusion in terms of sensitivity, specificity, and likelihood ratios (LRs).

The study concluded that no subset of patients with chronic LBP could be identified for whom spinal fusion is a predictable and effective treatment. Best evidence does not support the use of current tests for patient selection in clinical practice.

Yoga Stress and Inflammation

Previously it was shown that a brief yoga-based lifestyle intervention was efficacious in reducing oxidative stress and risk of chronic diseases even in a short duration.

The objective of a recent study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, was to assess the efficacy of this intervention in reducing stress and inflammation in patients with chronic inflammatory diseases.

This study reports preliminary results from a nonrandomized prospective ongoing study with pre–post design.

The study was conducted at the Integral Health Clinic, an outpatient facility conducting these yoga-based lifestyle intervention programs for prevention and management of chronic diseases.

Patients with chronic inflammatory diseases and overweight/obese subjects were included while physically challenged, and those on other interventions were excluded from the study.

The study concluded that this brief yoga-based lifestyle intervention reduced the markers of stress and inflammation as early as 10 days in patients with chronic diseases; however, complete results of this study will confirm whether this program has utility as complementary and alternative therapy.

Early Predictors of Lumbar Spine Surgery

A recent study published in the journal Spine was published to identify early predictors of lumbar spine surgery within 3 years after occupational back injury.

Back injuries are the most prevalent occupational injury in the United States. Few prospective studies have examined early predictors of spine surgery after work-related back injury.

The authors of the study examined the early predictors of lumbar spine surgery within 3 years among Washington State workers with new worker’s compensation temporary total disability claims for back injuries.

Reduced odds of surgery were observed for those under age 35, women, Hispanics, and those whose first provider was a chiropractor. 42.7% of workers who first saw a surgeon had surgery, in contrast to only 1.5% of those who saw a chiropractor.

The study concluded that baseline variables in multiple domains predicted lumbar spine surgery. There was a very strong association between surgery and first provider seen for the injury, even after adjustment for other important variables.

And Now for some news ….

CAM Therapy Usage

A recent study published in Health Affairs, looked at the current usage of CAM Therapies.

Complementary and alternative medicine services in the United States are an approximately $9 billion market each year, equal to 3 percent of national ambulatory health care expenditures.

Unlike conventional allopathic health care, complementary and alternative medicine is primarily paid for out of pocket, although some services are covered by most health insurance.

Examining trends in demand for complementary and alternative medicine services in the United States reported in the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey during 2002–08, the authors found that use of and spending on these services, previously on the rise, have largely plateaued.

The higher proportion of out-of-pocket responsibility for payment for services may explain the lack of growth. Our findings suggest that any attempt to reduce national health care spending by eliminating coverage for complementary and alternative medicine would have little impact at best.

Should some forms of complementary and alternative medicine—for example, chiropractic care for back pain—be proven more efficient than allopathic and specialty medicine, the inclusion of complementary and alternative medicine providers in new delivery systems such as accountable care organizations could help slow growth in national health care spending.

White Rice and Type 2 Diabetes Risk

A recent study was published in the British Journal of Medicine to summarize evidence on the association between white rice consumption and risk of type 2 diabetes and to quantify the potential dose-response relation.

Four articles were identified that included seven distinct prospective cohort analyses in Asian and Western populations for this study. A total of 13 284 incident cases of type 2 diabetes were ascertained among 352 384 participants with follow-up periods ranging from 4 to 22 years.

Asian (Chinese and Japanese) populations had much higher white rice consumption levels than did Western populations (average intake levels were three to four servings/day versus one to two servings/week).

The study concluded that higher consumption of white rice is associated with a significantly increased risk of type 2 diabetes, especially in Asian (Chinese and Japanese) populations.

As always, discuss all Nutritional questions with your Qualified Health Care Professional.

Diet Sodas and Diabetes

It has been extensively shown, mainly in US populations, that sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) are associated with increased risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D), but less is known about the effects of artificially sweetened beverages (ASBs).

The Authors of a recent study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition evaluated the association between self-reported sugar-sweetened beverages, artificially sweetened beverages, and 100% fruit juice consumption and T2D risk over 14 y of follow-up in a French Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition cohort.

The study concluded that both sugar-sweetened beverages consumption and artificially sweetened beverages consumption were associated with increased T2D risk. We cannot rule out that factors other than artificially sweetened beverages consumption that we did not control for are responsible for the association with diabetes, and randomized trials are required to prove a causal link between artificially sweetened beverages consumption and T2D.

As always, discuss all Nutritional questions with your Qualified Health Care Professional.

And Now for some news ….

Timing of Food Intake and Weight Loss Effectiveness

A recent study published in the International Journal of Obesity found that there is emerging literature demonstrating a relationship between the timing of feeding and weight regulation in animals.

However, whether the timing of food intake influences the success of a weight-loss diet in humans is unknown.

The present study was conducted to evaluate the role of food timing in weight-loss effectiveness in a sample of 420 individuals who followed a 20-week weight-loss treatment.

Late lunch eaters lost less weight and displayed a slower weight-loss rate during the 20 weeks of treatment than early eaters (P=0.002). Surprisingly, energy intake, dietary composition, estimated energy expenditure, appetite hormones and sleep duration was similar between both groups.

Nevertheless, late eaters were more evening types, had less energetic breakfasts and skipped breakfast more frequently that early eaters.

The Study concluded that eating late may influence the success of weight-loss therapy. Novel therapeutic strategies should incorporate not only the caloric intake and macronutrient distribution—as is classically done—but also the timing of food.

Amount of Weekly Exercise and Effectiveness

A recent study published in the journal Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise examined the effects of three different frequencies of combined resistance and aerobic training on total energy expenditure (TEE) and activity related energy expenditure (AEE) in a group of older adults.

Seventy-two women, 60 – 74 years old, were randomly assigned to one of three groups:

  • 1 day/week of aerobic and 1 day/week of resistance (1+1);
  • 2 days/week of aerobic and 2 days/week resistance (2+2); or
  • 3 days/week aerobic and 3 days/week resistance (3+3).

Body composition (DXA), feeling of fatigue, depression, and vigor (questionnaire), strength (1RM), serum cytokines (ELISA), maximal oxygen uptake (progressive treadmill test), resting energy expenditure, and TEE were measured before and after 16 weeks of training.

Aerobic training consisted of 40 minutes of aerobic exercise at 80% maximum heart rate and resistance training consisted of 2 sets of 10 repetitions for 10 different exercises at 80% of one repetition maximum.

All groups increased fat free mass, strength and aerobic fitness and decreased fat mass. No changes were observed in cytokines or perceptions of fatigue/depression. No time by group interaction was found for any fitness/body composition variable.

Nonexercise training activity related energy expenditure (NEAT) increased significantly in the 2+2 group (+200 kcal/day), group 1×1 showed a trend for an increase (+68 kcal/day) and group 3+3 decreased significantly (-150 kcal/day).

The study concluded that the results indicate that 3+3 training may inhibit NEAT by being too time consuming and does not induce superior training adaptations to 1+1 and 2+2 training.

Glycemic Load and Type 2 Diabetes

Although much is known about the association between dietary glycemic load (GL) and type 2 diabetes (T2D), prospective cohort studies have not consistently shown a positive dose-response relation.

The authors of a recent study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition performed a comprehensive examination of evidence on the dose response that links GL to T2D and sources of heterogeneity among all prospective cohort studies on healthy adults available in the literature.

The study concluded that after the authors accounted for several sources of heterogeneity, findings from prospective cohort studies that related the GL to T2D appear robust and consistently indicate strong and significantly lower T2D risk in persons who consume lower-GL diets.

And Now for some news ….

 

 

The Craniocervical Flexion Test

The Deep Cervical Flexors (DCFs) provide support and segmental stability to the cervical spine. However, their endurance capacity can be reduced in cervicogenic disorders.

The Craniocervical Flexion Test (CCFT) is regarded as the most effective means of assessing the contractile performance of these muscles. However, limited normative data exists to serve as a reference point during diagnosis.

 

A recent study in the journal Manual Therapy examined Craniocervical Flexion Test performance in a group of young asymptomatic subjects and investigated the influence of physical activity levels, age and gender on the Craniocervical Flexion Test score.

The study concluded that the Median Baseline Assessment score was 24 mmHg. Between-subject variability was high while physical activity levels; age or gender did not appear to influence the DCF muscle tonic holding capacity.

The small heterogeneous sample involved in this study highlights the need for high quality normative studies to validate these findings.

Physical therapy treatments for low back pain in children and adolescents

Low back pain (LBP) in adolescents is associated with LBP in later years.

In recent years treatments have been administered to adolescents for LBP, but it is not known which physical therapy treatment is the most efficacious.

By means of a meta-analysis, the current study published in the online journal BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, investigated the effectiveness of the physical therapy treatments for LBP in children and adolescents.

The study concluded that of all the physical therapy treatments for LBP in children and adolescents, the combination of therapeutic physical conditioning and manual therapy is the most effective.

The low number of studies and control groups, and the methodological limitations in this meta-analysis prevent the authors of the study from drawing definitive conclusions in relation to the efficacy of physical therapy treatments in LBP.

Affordable Care Act and Sunshine Rule

ChiroCode recently sent out an update to the Affordable Care Act.

On February 1, 2013, CMS announced a final rule designed to increase transparency in health care. Dubbed the “Sunshine” rule, the “National Physician Payment Transparency Program: Open Payments,” is one of many steps in the Affordable Care Act designed to create greater transparency in the health care market.

The announcement stated that “This rule finalizes the provisions that require manufacturers of drugs, devices, biologicals, and medical supplies covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) to report payments or other transfers of value they make to physicians and teaching hospitals to CMS.”

Additionally, group purchasing organizations (GPOs) must disclose physician ownership or investment interests.

This information will be posted on a public website in an ongoing effort to reduce potential conflict of interest issues between physicians and manufacturers. Data gathering will begin August 1, 2013 and CMS plans to release that data by September 30, 2014.

Treatments for Older Adults with Low Back Pain

Low back pain is a prevalent and debilitating condition that affects the health and quality of life of older adults.

Older people often consult primary care physicians about back pain, with many also receiving concurrent care from complementary and alternative medicine providers, most commonly doctors of chiropractic.

However, a collaborative model of treatment coordination between these two provider groups has yet to be tested.

The primary aim of the Collaborative Care for Older Adults Clinical Trial is to develop and evaluate the clinical effectiveness and feasibility of a patient-centered, collaborative care model with family medicine physicians and doctors of chiropractic for the treatment of low back pain in older adults.

This pragmatic, pilot randomized controlled trial will enroll 120 participants, age 65 years or older with subacute or chronic low back pain lasting at least one month, from a community-based sample in the Quad-Cities, Iowa/Illinois, USA.

Eligible participants are allocated in a 1:1:1 ratio to receive 12 weeks of medical care, concurrent medical and chiropractic care, or collaborative medical and chiropractic care.

Treatment safety and adverse events also are monitored.

This pragmatic, pilot randomized controlled trial uses a mixed method approach to evaluate the clinical effectiveness, feasibility, and participant and provider perceptions of collaborative care between medical doctors and doctors of chiropractic in the treatment of older adults with low back pain.

Low back pain-related beliefs and likely practice behaviours among health students

Evidence points to clinicians’ beliefs and practice behaviours related to low back pain (LBP), which are discordant with contemporary evidence.

While interventions to align beliefs and behaviours with evidence among clinicians have demonstrated effectiveness, a more sustainable and cost-effective approach to positively developing workforce capacity in this area may be to target the emerging workforce.

The aim of a recent study published in the European Journal of Pain, was to investigate beliefs and clinical recommendations for LBP, and their alignment to evidence, in Australian university allied health and medical students.

Physiotherapy and chiropractic students reported significantly more helpful beliefs compared with the other disciplines, while pharmacy students reported the least helpful beliefs. A greater proportion of chiropractic and physiotherapy students reported guideline-consistent recommendations compared with other disciplines.

The study concluded that aligning cross-discipline university curricula with current evidence may provide an opportunity to facilitate translation of this evidence into practice with a focus on a consistent, cross-discipline approach to LBP management.

Mechanisms of chronic pain from whiplash injury

A recent study published in the Journal of Forensic and Legal Medicine, provides insights into the mechanisms underlying chronic pain from whiplash injury.

Studies show that injury produces plasticity changes of different neuronal structures that are responsible for amplification of nociception and exaggerated pain responses.

There is consistent evidence for hypersensitivity of the central nervous system to sensory stimulation in chronic pain after whiplash injury. Tissue damage, detected or not by the available diagnostic methods, is probably the main determinant of central hypersensitivity.

Different mechanisms underlie and co-exist in the chronic whiplash condition. Spinal cord hyperexcitability in patients with chronic pain after whiplash injury can cause exaggerated pain following low intensity nociceptive or innocuous peripheral stimulation.

Spinal hypersensitivity may explain pain in the absence of detectable tissue damage.

Whiplash is a heterogeneous condition with some individuals showing features suggestive of neuropathic pain. A predominantly neuropathic pain component is related to a higher pain/disability level.
