Management of persistent coccydynia with transrectal manipulation

A recent study, published in the European Spine Journal, compared the results of manual therapy combined with steroid injection with single steroid injection in the treatment of persistent coccydynia.

Combined therapy was performed in 21 patients (Group 1) and steroid injection in 23 patients (Group 2).

Patients were classified according to the underlying cause, BMI, anatomic type of coccyx and duration of symptoms.

The study concluded that Manual therapy combined with steroid injection would be an alternative method in case of persistent coccydynia.

It is a safe and easy option before surgical treatment.

As always, discuss all forms of therapy with your Qualified Health Care Professional.

Chest Pain and Mental Stress Induced Myocardial Ischemia – Sex Differences

A recent study published in the American Journal of Medicine, looked at the connection between Chest Pain and Mental Stress Induced Ischemia and related sex differences.

Mental stress-induced myocardial ischemia (MSIMI) is a frequent phenomenon in patients with coronary artery disease.

Women with coronary artery disease tend to have more MSIMI and more chest pain/anginal symptoms than men, but whether the association between MSIMI and angina burden differs in women and men, is unknown.

The study concluded, that in women, but not in men, anginal symptoms may be a marker of vulnerability towards ischemia induced by psychological stress.

These results highlight the psychosocial origins of angina in women, and may have important implications for the management and prognosis of women with angina.

Fast Food Physical Activity and Adiposity in Mid-Life

Obesity is strongly linked to a range of chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and contributes substantially to excess morbidity, mortality, and rising health-care costs globally.

The authors of a recent study published in the journal, The Lancet, examined whether neighborhood exposure to fast-food outlets and physical activity facilities were associated with adiposity in UK adults.

The authors examined whether density of physical activity facilities and proximity to fast-food outlets were associated with waist circumference, body-mass index (BMI), and body fat percentage.

The authors used multilevel linear regression models adjusted for potential confounders, and conducted several sensitivity analyses.

This study shows strong associations between high densities of physical activity facilities and lower adiposity for adults in mid-life.

The authors observed weaker associations for access to fast food, but these are likely to be underestimated owing to limitations of the food environment measure.

Policy makers should consider interventions aimed at tackling the obesogenic built environment.

Multisite Peripheral Joint Pin

Research into musculoskeletal conditions often focuses on pain at single sites, such as the knee, yet several studies have previously reported the high prevalence of multiple sites of musculoskeletal pain.

The most common form of musculoskeletal condition is arthritis, with osteoarthritis (OA) the most common cause of joint pain in adults 45 years and over.

However, there is limited recognition of the prevalence of multisite peripheral joint pain in those either living with or at risk of OA, therefore a recent study, published in the journal BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, set out to estimate the prevalence of multisite peripheral joint pain in adults 45 years and older, and its impact on several dimensions of health.

The study concluded that multisite peripheral joint pain is prevalent in the population in adults 45 years and over and has a significant negative impact on several dimensions of health.

Health care professionals should consider joint pain beyond the index site in order to address holistic management.

And Now for some news ….

 

 

SMT and Clinical Benefit for Acute LBP

Acute low back pain is common and spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) is a treatment option. Randomized clinical trials (RCTs) and meta-analyses have reported different conclusions about the effectiveness of SMT.

In a recent systematic review, published in JAMA, a meta-analysis of 26 randomized clinical trials, spinal manipulative therapy was associated with statistically significant benefits in both pain and function, of on average modest magnitude, at up to 6 weeks.

Minor transient adverse events such as increased pain, muscle stiffness, and headache were reported in more than half of patients in the large case series.

Among patients with acute low back pain, spinal manipulative therapy was associated with modest improvements in pain and function and with transient minor musculoskeletal harms.

The study’s goal was to systematically review studies of the effectiveness and harms of SMT for acute (≤6 weeks) low back pain.

The study concluded that among patients with acute low back pain, spinal manipulative therapy was associated with modest improvements in pain and function at up to 6 weeks, with transient minor musculoskeletal harms. However, heterogeneity in study results was large.

Cytokines in Tendon Disease

Emerging evidence indicates that tendon disease is an active process with inflammation that is critical to disease onset and progression. However, the key cytokines responsible for driving and sustaining inflammation have not been identified.

The authors of a recent study published in the journal Bone & Joint

Research, performed a systematic review of the literature using MEDLINE in March 2017.

Studies reporting the expression of interleukins (ILs), tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) and interferon gamma in diseased human tendon tissues, and animal models of tendon injury or exercise in comparison with healthy control tissues were included.

The Study concluded that this review highlights the roles of IL-1β, IL-6, IL-10, and TNF-α in the development of tendon disease, during tendon healing, and in response to exercise. However, there is evidence accumulating that suggests that other cytokines are also contributing to tendon inflammatory processes.

Further work with hypothesis-free methods is warranted in order to identify the key cytokines, with subsequent mechanistic and interaction studies to elucidate their roles in tendon disease development.
