And Now for some news ….

 

 

Amount and Intensity of Leisure-Time Physical Activity and Lower Cancer Risk

A recent study was published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology to determine whether recommended amounts of leisure-time physical activity are associated with lower cancer risk, describe the shape of the dose-response relationship, and explore associations with moderate- and vigorous-intensity physical activity.

In the United States, 1.7 million individuals are diagnosed with invasive cancer and > 600,000 people die as a result of malignant diseases annually,1 which highlights the importance of cancer prevention.

It has been long known that physical activity is associated with a lower risk of colon and breast cancer, but the 2018 US Physical Activity Guidelines Advisory Committee found strong evidence that physical activity is associated with a lower risk of several additional cancer sites, including endometrial, bladder, esophageal adenocarcinoma, kidney, and gastric.

Given this evidence, physical activity will play an increasingly important role in population-based cancer prevention efforts.

The study concluded that health care providers, fitness professionals, and public health practitioners should encourage adults to adopt and maintain physical activity at recommended levels to lower risks of multiple cancers.

Exercise and Depression

Exercise and advice can reduce pain and disability in patients with subacute low back pain. However, the mechanisms by which this combined intervention works are unclear.

The objective of a recent study published in the journal Musculoskeletal Science and Practice, was to estimate how much of the effect of a physiotherapist-directed exercise and advice intervention on pain and disability is mediated via changes in depressive symptoms.

The study concluded that depressive symptoms did not mediate the effect of exercise and/or advice in this sample. However, depressive symptoms were associated with pain and disability.

Relationship Between Forward Head Posture and Neck Pain

Forward head posture (FHP) is the most common cervical postural fault in the sagittal plane that is found with different severity levels in almost all populations. Despite claims that Forward head posture may be related to neck pain, this relation seems to be controversial.

Thus, the purpose of a recent review published in Current Reviews in Musculoskeletal Medicine, is to determine whether Forward head posture differs between asymptomatic subjects and those with neck pain and to investigate if there is a relationship between head posture and neck pain.

This systematic review found that age played an important role as a confounding factor in the relation between FHP and neck pain.

Also, the results showed that adults with neck pain show increased Forward head posture when compared to asymptomatic adults and that Forward head posture is significantly correlated with neck pain measures in adults and older adults.

No association was found between Forward head posture and most of neck pain measures in adolescents.

Psychosocial Stress and Overweight and Obesity

Psychosocial stress has been implicated as a risk factor for overweight and obesity. However, research on psychosocial stressors and overweight and obesity has typically focused on single stressors in isolation, which may overestimate the impact of a specific stressor and fail to describe the role of cumulative stress on overweight and obesity risk.

A recent study, published in the journal Oxford Academic, explores the association between overweight/obesity and cumulative exposure to a wide range of psychosocial stressors, among a multiracial/ethnic sample of adults.

The study concluded that multiple types of stressors may be risk factors for obesity, and cumulative exposure to these stressors may increase the odds of obesity.

Reducing exposure to stressors at the population level may have the potential to contribute to reducing the burden of obesity.

Personal and Societal Impact of Low Back Pain

The aim of a recent study published in the journal Spine, was to study the personal and societal impact of low back pain (LBP) in patients admitted to a multidisciplinary spine center.

The socioeconomic burden of LBP is very high. A minority of patients visit secondary or tertiary care because of severe and long-lasting complaints. This subgroup may account for a major part of disability and costs, yet could potentially gain most from treatment.

Currently, little is known about the personal and societal burden in patients with chronic complex LBP visiting secondary/tertiary care.

The study concluded that in patients seeking multidisciplinary spine care, the personal and societal impact of LBP is very high.

Specifically, quality of life and work ability are poor and health care costs are twice as high compared to patients seeking primary LBP care.

Chronic LBP and Effectiveness of an Interdisciplinary Pain Program

The aim of a recent study published in the journal Spine, was to compare the effectiveness of PT to an interdisciplinary treatment approach in patients with chronic low back pain (CLBP).

CLBP is a costly and potentially disabling condition. Physical therapy (PT), cognitive behavioral therapy, and interdisciplinary pain programs (IPPs) are superior to usual care.

Empirical evidence is lacking to clearly support one treatment approach over another in patients with CLBP.

One hundred seventeen adult patients who completed an IPP for individuals with ≥3 months of back pain were compared to 214 adult patients with similar characteristics who completed PT.

The Modified Low Back Pain Disability Questionnaire was the primary outcome measure.

The study concluded that CLBP patients in an interdisciplinary pain programs demonstrated greater functional improvements compared to similar patients participating in PT.
