NFL and MLB Mortality Rates

https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamanetworkopen/fullarticle/2734063

 

There has been considerable interest, both in the scientific community and among the general public, in the lifelong health of American-style football players. Studies that have compared US National Football League (NFL) players with the general US population have found overall reduced mortality among NFL players. Such studies13have been used in mainstream media to discredit claims that American-style football may have harmful consequences.4,5

In contrast to overall mortality, neurodegenerative disease mortality has been reported to be elevated among NFL players.2 The possibility that there may be an increased risk of neurodegenerative diseases among NFL players has received substantial attention after reports of neuropathology consistent with chronic traumatic encephalopathy in a number of professional American-style football players.

Inflammation and How Vagus Nerve Stimulation Effects Cytokines

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a heterogeneous, prevalent, chronic autoimmune disease characterized by painful swollen joints and significant disabilities.

Symptomatic relief can be achieved in up to 50% of patients using biological agents that inhibit tumor necrosis factor (TNF) or other mechanisms of action, but there are no universally effective therapies.

Recent advances in basic and preclinical science reveal that reflex neural circuits inhibit the production of cytokines and inflammation in animal models.

One well-characterized cytokine-inhibiting mechanism, termed the “inflammatory reflex,” is dependent upon vagus nerve signals that inhibit cytokine production and attenuate experimental arthritis severity in mice and rats.

A 2016 study published in the journal PNSA, found that these findings suggest that it is possible to use mechanism-based neuromodulating devices in the experimental therapy of RA and possibly other autoimmune and auto-inflammatory diseases.

Spinal Manipulation and Pressure Pain Threshold

The objective of a recent systematic review, published in the journal Chiropractic & Manual Therapies, was to determine the effect-size of SM in asymptomatic subjects and its duration.

Spinal manipulation (SM) has been shown in a systematic review to have a statistically significant effect on the pressure pain threshold (PPT) in asymptomatic subjects, when SM is compared to a sham intervention. The magnitude and duration of this effect is unclear.

This is a secondary analysis of data from a previous review. We sought to compare the effect-sizes in the various articles but had to calculate them ourselves, at different follow-up time measurements.

The review concluded that the Authors need to revise their approach to ‘effect size’. Our calculations showed that the effect-size of SM on PPT may go from ‘medium’ to ‘large’ within the first five minutes but appears to diminish again within ten minutes. Research of this type should collect information for longer periods and compare results to other interventions to put results into perspective.

HIPAA Update

According to a recent ChiroCode email, in April 2019 The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that “HHS will apply a different cumulative annual CMP limit for each of the four penalties tiers in the HITECH Act.”

Unlike other notices which require a proposed rule with a comment period, this notice will take effect immediately because the law allows HHS to revise penalty amounts as they see fit.

According to the Federal Register, this notification is to inform the public that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is exercising its discretion in how it applies HHS regulations concerning the assessment of Civil Money Penalties (CMPs) under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), as such provision was amended by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act.

Plant Foods vs Red Meats and Cardiovascular Risks

Findings among randomized controlled trials evaluating the effect of red meat on cardiovascular disease risk factors are inconsistent.

The authors of a recent study published in the journal Circulation, provide an updated meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials on red meat and cardiovascular risk factors and determine whether the relationship depends on the composition of the comparison diet, hypothesizing that plant sources would be relatively beneficial.

The authors conducted a systematic PubMed search of randomized controlled trials published up until July 2017 comparing diets with red meat with diets that replaced red meat with a variety of foods.

The authors stratified comparison diets into high-quality plant protein sources (legumes, soy, nuts); chicken/poultry/fish; fish only; poultry only; mixed animal protein sources (including dairy); carbohydrates (low-quality refined grains and simple sugars, such as white bread, pasta, rice, cookies/biscuits); or usual diet.

The conclusion stated that the authors performed random-effects meta-analyses comparing differences Inconsistencies regarding the effects of red meat on cardiovascular disease risk factors are attributable, in part, to the composition of the comparison diet.

Substituting red meat with high-quality plant protein sources, but not with fish or low-quality carbohydrates, leads to more favorable changes in blood lipids and lipoproteins.

Spinal Manipulation and the Brain

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S2095496419300597

 

Spinal manipulation has been an effective intervention for the management of various musculoskeletal disorders.

However, the mechanisms underlying the pain modulatory effects of spinal manipulation remain elusive.

Although both biomechanical and neurophysiological phenomena have been thought to play a role in the observed clinical effects of spinal manipulation, a growing number of recent studies have indicated peripheral, spinal and supraspinal mechanisms of manipulation and suggested that the improved clinical outcomes are largely of neurophysiological origin.

In this article, we reviewed the relevance of various neurophysiological theories with respect to the findings of mechanistic studies that demonstrated neural responses following spinal manipulation.

This article also discussed whether these neural responses are associated with the possible neurophysiological mechanisms of spinal manipulation. The body of literature reviewed herein suggested some clear neurophysiological changes following spinal manipulation, which include neural plastic changes, alteration in motor neuron excitability, increase in cortical drive and many more.

However, the clinical relevance of these changes in relation to the mechanisms that underlie the effectiveness of spinal manipulation is still unclear. In addition, there were some major methodological flaws in many of the reviewed studies.

Future mechanistic studies should have an appropriate study design and methodology and should plan for a long-term follow-up in order to determine the clinical significance of the neural responses evoked following spinal manipulation.

Central Sensitization and LB Outcomes

Central sensitisation is considered to have a pathophysiological role in chronic low back pain (LBP). Whether individuals with increased central sensitisation early in their condition are more likely to develop persistent pain or whether it increases over time is unclear.

A recent study aimed to determine whether sensory profiles during acute LBP differ between individuals who did and did not recover by 6-months and to identify subgroups associated with outcomes.

Individuals with acute LBP (<2 weeks of onset) underwent pain threshold (heat/cold/pressure) and conditioned pain modulation (CPM) testing after completing questionnaires related to pain/disability, sleep, and psychological status.

Sensory measures were compared during the acute phase (baseline) and longitudinally (baseline/6-months) between unrecovered (≥pain and disability), partially recovered (<pain and/or disability), and recovered (no pain and disability) participants at 6-months.

The study concluded that these data appear to suggest that central sensitisation during the acute-phase resolves for many, but is a precursor to the transition to chronicity when combined with other psychological features.

Joint Hypermobility and Chronic LBP

Chronic low back pain (cLBP) affects millions of Americans and costs billions. Studies suggest a link between cLBP and joint hypermobility.

The authors of a recent study, published in the journal BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, conducted cross-sectional primary analyses of joint hypermobility and cLBP, lumbar spine osteoarthritis (OA), and lumbar facet joint OA (FOA) in 3 large studies—the Generalized Osteoarthritis Study, Genetics of Generalized Osteoarthritis Study, and Johnston County Osteoarthritis Project.

Associations of joint hypermobility and Beighton trunk flexion with cLBP and lumbar OA were estimated using separate adjusted logistic regression models.

The study concluded that Hypermobility was not associated with cLBP or lumbar OA. The inverse association of trunk flexion with cLBP and lumbar OA may indicate a role for a flexible spine in avoiding or managing these conditions.

Exercise Induced Hypoalgesia

Exercise is considered an important component of effective chronic pain management and it is well established that long term exercise training provides pain relief.

In healthy, pain-free populations, a single bout of aerobic or resistance exercise typically leads to exercise induced hypoalgesia (EIH), a generalized reduction in pain and pain sensitivity that occurs during exercise and for some time afterwards.

In contrast, exercise induced hypoalgesia is more variable in chronic pain populations and is more frequently impaired; with pain and pain sensitivity decreasing, remaining unchanged or, in some cases, even increasing in response to exercise.

In this article, published in the Journal of Pain, the authors provide an overview of exercise induced hypoalgesia across different chronic pain conditions.

Exercise vs Inactivity and Metabolic Benefits

Acute exercise improves postprandial lipemia, glucose tolerance, and insulin sensitivity, all of which are risk factors for cardiovascular disease.

However, recent research suggests that prolonged sedentary behavior might abolish these healthy metabolic benefits.

Accordingly, a recent study, aimed to elucidate the impact of an acute bout of exercise on postprandial plasma triglyceride, glucose, and insulin concentrations after four days of prolonged sitting (~13.5 hrs/day).

The study conclude that these data indicate that physical inactivity (e.g., sitting ~13.5 hrs/day and <4,000 steps/day) creates a condition whereby people become “resistant” to the metabolic improvements that are typically derived from an acute bout of aerobic exercise (i.e., exercise resistance).
