Yoga Balance and Mobility

A recent systematic review was published in the journal Age and Ageing found that one-third of community-dwelling older adults fall annually.

Exercise that challenges balance is proven to prevent falls. The authors conducted a systematic review with meta-analysis to determine the impact of yoga-based exercise on balance and physical mobility in people aged 60+ years.

The review found that yoga interventions resulted in small improvements in balance and medium improvements in physical mobility in people aged 60+ years.

Further research is required to determine whether yoga-related improvements in balance and mobility translate to prevention of falls in older people.

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 the journal Manual Therapy, was to systematically review the literature to investigate the outcome of hip exercise in people with PFP.

Of the papers identified hip and knee strengthening programmes were shown to be equally effective. Limited evidence indicates that the addition of hip exercise to an exercise programme is beneficial. Limited evidence demonstrates that motor skill retraining in a participant group who displayed abnormal hip alignment in running improves pain.

The review concluded that 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 standardisation of methodology is recommended to enable meaningful comparison between trials.

Impact of flare-ups on the lives of individuals with low back pain

Investigating flare-ups has become relevant to understanding and managing low back pain (LBP), particularly because there has been a shift in the conceptualization of LBP from acute or chronic to fluctuating or episodic.

Available research mainly consists of quantitative studies, which are unable to fully explore the perspectives of individuals with LBP. This study aimed to address this gap by exploring the changes in individual’s lives when they experience LBP flare-up.

Chiropractic Care and Falls Risk

A 2016 study published in JMPT, the Journal of Manipulative and Physiologic Therapeutics, assessed whether 12 weeks of chiropractic care was effective in improving sensorimotor function associated with fall risk, compared with no intervention, in community-dwelling older adults living in Auckland, New Zealand.

Outcome measures were assessed at baseline, 4 weeks, and 12 weeks and included proprioception (ankle joint position sense), postural stability, sensorimotor function, multisensory integration, and health-related quality of life.

The study concluded that sensorimotor function and multisensory integration associated with fall risk and the physical component of quality of life improved in older adults receiving chiropractic care compared with control.

Future research is needed to investigate the mechanisms of action that contributed to the observed changes in this study and whether chiropractic care has an impact on actual falls risk in older adults.

SMT Effect on Muscles

A recent study published in the journal Brain Science, investigates whether spinal manipulation leads to changes in motor control by measuring the recruitment pattern of motor units in both an upper and lower limb muscle and to see whether such changes may at least in part occur at the cortical level by recording movement related cortical potential (MRCP) amplitudes.

The study found that the results are consistent with previous findings that have suggested increases in strength following spinal manipulation were due to descending cortical drive and could not be explained by changes at the level of the spinal cord.

Spinal manipulation may therefore be indicated for the patients who have lost tonus of their muscle and/or are recovering from muscle degrading dysfunctions such as stroke or orthopaedic operations and/or may also be of interest to sports performers.

These findings should be followed up in the relevant populations.

BC-BS of NJ Cut Chiro Reimbursement

Chiropractors in New Jersey are waging a legal battle against a decision they say that could make thousands of public workers pay more for out-of-network treatment by cutting reimbursements 70 percent beginning in January.

The case stems from the decision by the State Health Benefits Commission in July to curb out-of-network care by slashing reimbursement rates to $35 a visit or 75 percent of the in-network rate, whichever is less.

The ANJC filed an appeal in September claiming their profession was unfairly singled out among other pain management specialists for drastic cuts.

Of the 2,100 chiropractors working in the state, about 1,800 are in an insurance network, according to the association. The others resist joining or dropped out because of meager reimbursements and the constant battles with insurance companies.

Low Back Pain and Sitting

The relationships between sedentary lifestyle, sitting behaviour, and low back pain (LBP) remain controversial.

In a recent study, published in the journal Applied Ergonomics, the authors investigated the relationship between back pain and occupational sitting habits in 64 call-centre employees.

A textile pressure mat was used to evaluate and parameterise sitting behaviour over a total of 400 h, while pain questionnaires evaluated acute and chronic LBP.

Seventy-five percent of the participants reported some level of either chronic or acute back pain. Individuals with chronic LBP demonstrated a possible trend (t-test not significant) towards more static sitting behaviour compared to their pain-free counterparts.

Furthermore, a greater association was found between sitting behaviour and chronic LBP than for acute pain/disability, which is plausibly due to a greater awareness of pain-free sitting positions in individuals with chronic pain compared to those affected by acute pain.

This study found that Subjects with chronic low back pain tended to show a more static sitting behaviour.
