Cervical Spine and MRI After Whiplash Injury

Some patients suffer from long-lasting symptoms after whiplash injury. However, there are few reports on the long-term changes in the cervical spine after whiplash injury using imaging tests.

The purpose of a recent longitudinal study, published in the Journal of Orthopedic Science, was to determine the changes on MRI of the cervical spine 20 years after whiplash injury, and to examine the relationships between changes in the cervical spine on MRI and changes in related clinical symptoms.

Eighty-one subjects finally participated in this study. Statistic analyses were used to investigate whether the progression of each MRI finding was associated with the severity of neck pain, stiff shoulders, dizziness and tinnitus.

The study concluded that twenty years after whiplash injury, 95% of the subjects showed a progression of degeneration in the cervical spine.

The progression of the intervertebral disc degeneration in the cervical spine on MRI after whiplash injury was not significantly associated with changes in the severity of related clinical symptoms, indicating that the degenerative changes on MRI may reflect the physiological aging process rather than post-traumatic sequelae.

Inflammatory Back Pain Characteristics and MRI Findings in the Spine and Sacroiliac Joints

A recent study was published in the journal Arthritis Care and Research to investigate the association between magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings at the sacroiliac (SI) joints and vertebral endplates and pain characteristics assumed to be indicative of axial inflammation.

Patients ages 18–40 years with persistent low back pain referred to an outpatient spine clinic participated, including an unknown proportion of axial spondyloarthritis patients.

The study concluded that the identified associations between inflammatory MRI findings and pain characteristics indicate that axial inflammation to some degree induces a specific pain pattern.

Thus, the results add to knowledge of axial inflammatory processes. However, all identified associations were weak, which compromises the use of inflammatory back pain as a marker of axial inflammation.

Non-Responders to Exercise

It is well established that exercise is an important component in the maintenance of good health, and yet recent studies have demonstrated that a sub-section of individuals experience no significant improvements following an exercise training intervention.

Such individuals are commonly termed “non-responders”.

However, recently a number of researchers have taken a skeptical view as to whether exercise non-response either exists, or is clinically relevant.

In this study, the authors explore the research underpinning exercise response, to determine whether non-response to exercise actually exists.

The authors state in their conclusion, “based on our interpretations of the available evidence, we suggest that it is unlikely that global non-responders to exercise exist.

Furthermore, we suggest this realization effectively counters the perception that some individuals will not positively respond to exercise, and that in turn, this insight serves to encourage health professionals to create more nuanced, efficacious, and individually-focused exercise prescriptions designed to circumvent and overcome apparent non-responsiveness.

Adopting a more individually-adaptive approach to exercise prescription could, subsequently, prove a powerful tool in promoting population health.”

As always, discuss all Exercise related issues with your Qualified Healthcare Provider.

Cracking Sounds and Spinal Manipulation Beliefs

The journal Joint Bone Spine, recently published a study to examine beliefs about cracking sounds heard during high-velocity low-amplitude (HVLA) thrust spinal manipulation in individuals with and without personal experience of this technique.

The authors included 100 individuals. Among them, 60 had no history of spinal manipulation, including 40 who were asymptomatic with or without a past history of spinal pain and 20 who had nonspecific spinal pain. The remaining 40 patients had a history of spinal manipulation; among them, 20 were asymptomatic and 20 had spinal pain.

The study concluded that certain beliefs have documented adverse effects. This study showed a high prevalence of unfounded beliefs regarding spinal manipulation. These beliefs deserve greater attention from healthcare providers, particularly those who practice spinal manipulation.

Global patterns in excess body weight and the associated cancer burden

The prevalence of excess body weight and the associated cancer burden have been rising over the past several decades globally.

Between 1975 and 2016, the prevalence of excess body weight in adults—defined as a body mass index (BMI) ≥ 25 kg/m2—increased from nearly 21% in men and 24% in women to approximately 40% in both sexes.

Notably, the prevalence of obesity (BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2) quadrupled in men, from 3% to 12%, and more than doubled in women, from 7% to 16%. This change, combined with population growth, resulted in a more than 6‐fold increase in the number of obese adults, from 100 to 671 million.

Given the pandemic proportion of excess body weight in high‐income countries and the increasing prevalence in low‐ and middle‐income countries, the global cancer burden attributable to this condition is likely to increase in the future.

There is emerging consensus on opportunities for obesity control through the multisectoral coordinated implementation of core policy actions to promote an environment conducive to a healthy diet and active living.

The rapid increase in both the prevalence of excess body weight and the associated cancer burden highlights the need for a rejuvenated focus on identifying, implementing, and evaluating interventions to prevent and control excess body weight.

Touch and Infants

A study in the journal Current Biology looked at the connection between Touch and Pain modulation.

Noxious-evoked brain activity in infants is similar to that observed when adults experience pain providing an objective method of assessing pain-relieving interventions.

A subclass of C fibre sensory neurons found in hairy skin are activated by gentle touch and respond optimally to stroking at 1–10 cm/s, serving a protective function by promoting affiliative behaviours. In adult humans, stimulation of these C-tactile (CT) afferents is pleasant, and can reduce pain perception.

Touch-based techniques, such as infant massage and kangaroo care, are designed to comfort infants during procedures, and a modest reduction in pain-related behavioural and physiological responses has been observed in some studies.

In this study, the Authors investigated whether touch can reduce noxious-evoked brain activity.

It was demonstrated that stroking prior to an experimental noxious stimulus or clinical heel lance can attenuate noxious-evoked brain activity in infants.

CT fibres may represent a biological target for non-pharmacological interventions that modulate pain in early life.

Psychological and Social Factors and Spinal Pain in Adolescents

Spinal pain, back pain, and/or neck pain begins early in life and is strongly associated with spinal pain in adulthood. Understanding the relationship between psychological and social factors and adolescent spinal pain may be important in both the prevention and treatment of spinal pain in this age group.

The authors of a recent study published in the European Journal of Pediatrics, aimed to determine if psychological and social factors were associated with spinal pain in a cross-sectional study of a school-based cohort of 1279 Danish adolescents aged 11-13, who were categorized into “any” and “substantial” spinal pain.

“Substantial spinal pain” was defined as a lifetime frequency of “sometimes” or “often” and a pain intensity of at least two on the revised Faces Pain Scale.

The study concluded that psychological and social factors may be important determinants in adolescent spinal pain.

What is Known:

  • Spinal pain begins early in life to reach adult levels by age 18. Spinal pain in adolescence is strongly associated with spinal pain in adulthood.
  • In adults, psychological and social factors and spinal pain are strongly related; however, this relationship in adolescence is poorly understood.

What is New:

  • Adolescents with spinal pain reported a significantly higher frequency of psychological factors and loneliness and lower levels of pupil acceptance.
  • Adolescents reporting higher levels of loneliness, lower levels of pupil acceptance, and increased frequency of psychological factors had increased odds of reporting “substantial spinal pain”.

Logan College and Medical College of Wisconsin Department of Neurosurgery

Logan’s College of Chiropractic has entered into an affiliation agreement to establish a preceptorship program with The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) Department of Neurosurgery.

Under the direction of Jeff King, DC, MS, 2011 graduate of Logan University, who serves as an assistant professor at MCW, Logan student interns will receive clinical training in a high-quality patient care delivery system.

The goal of the preceptorship program is to enhance patient care, education and research opportunities for both institutions.

During 2018, Logan placed approximately 165 student interns in preceptorship programs with organizations, institutions and private practices around the world.

Preceptorships at The Medical College of Wisconsin will start in May 2019 wherein eligible students will go through a selection process.

MRI and 1st Time LBP Episodes

Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is frequently used to evaluate first-time episodes of serious low back pain (LBP). Common degenerative findings are often interpreted as recent developments and the probable anatomic cause of the new symptoms.

To date no prospective study has established a baseline MR status of the lumbar spine in subjects without significant LBP problems and prospectively surveyed these subjects for acute changes shortly after new and serious LBP episodes. This method can identify new versus old MR findings possibly associated with the acute symptomatic episode.

The purpose of a recent study, published in The Spine Journal, was to determine if new and serious episodes of LBP are associated with new and relevant findings on MRI.

Findings on MR imaging within 12 weeks of serious LBP inception are highly unlikely to represent any new structural change. Most new changes (loss of disc signal, facet arthrosis, and end plate signal changes) represent progressive age changes not associated with acute events. Primary radicular syndromes may have new root compression findings associated with root irritation.

The study concluded that findings on MR imaging within 12 weeks of serious LBP inception are highly unlikely to represent any new structural change. Most new changes (loss of disc signal, facet arthrosis, and end plate signal changes) represent progressive age changes not associated with acute events.

Primary radicular syndromes may have new root compression findings associated with root irritation.

Aerobic Exercise and Concussions

A recent study was published in PLOS One, to determine whether earlier time to initiation of aerobic exercise following acute concussion is associated with time to full return to (1) sport and (2) school or work.

A retrospective stratified propensity score survival analysis of acute (≤14 days) concussion was used to determine whether time (days) to initiation of aerobic exercise post-concussion was associated with, both, time (days) to full return to (1) sport and (2) school or work.

The study concluded that earlier initiation of aerobic exercise was associated with faster full return to sport and school or work.

This study provides greater insight into the benefits and safety of aerobic exercise within the first week of the injury.

As always, discuss all Exercise recommendations with your Qualified Health Care Provider.

Low Muscle Mass and Continuum of Care

Abnormalities in body composition can occur at any body weight. Low muscle mass is a predictor of poor morbidity and mortality and occurs in several populations.

A recent narrative review published in the journal Annals of Medicine, provides an overview of the importance of low muscle mass on health outcomes for patients in inpatient, outpatient and long-term care clinical settings.

Low muscle mass is associated with outcomes such as higher surgical and post-operative complications, longer length of hospital stay, lower physical function, poorer quality of life and shorter survival.

As such, the potential clinical benefits of preventing and reversing this condition are likely to impact patient outcomes and resource utilization/health care costs.

Clinically viable tools to measure body composition are needed for routine screening and intervention.

Future research studies should elucidate the effectiveness of multimodal interventions to counteract low muscle mass for optimal patient outcomes across the healthcare continuum.

Risk factors for low back pain and sciatica

Low back pain (LBP) is a highly prevalent condition and it is associated with significant disability and work absenteeism worldwide.

A variety of environmental and individual characteristics have been reported to increase the risk of LBP.

According to the Author’s, there has been no previous attempt to summarize the evidence from existing systematic reviews of risk factors for LBP or sciatica.

A recent study was published in the Spine Journal, to provide an overview of risk factors for LBP, we completed an umbrella review of the evidence from existing systematic reviews.

An umbrella review was carried out. A systematic literature search was conducted in MEDLINE, EMBASE, PubMed PsychINFO, and CINAHL databases.

The study concluded that poor general health, physical and psychological stress, and characteristics of the person increase risk for a future episode of LBP or sciatica.

ACA Introduces New Medicare Legislation

Legislation championed by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) to expand Medicare coverage of services provided by chiropractors within the scope of their license has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The bill, H.R. 7157, introduced on Nov. 16th, would allow Medicare beneficiaries to access the chiropractic profession’s broad-based, non-drug approach to pain management, which includes manual manipulation of the spine and extremities, joint mobilization, soft-tissue massage techniques, physiological therapies, exercise instruction and activity advice.

Access to non-drug approaches to pain management in Medicare as well as private health care plans has become increasingly important in the wake of the nationwide opioid crisis. The bill adds no new services; it only allows access to those current Medicare benefits that chiropractors are licensed to provide.

Since 1972, the year chiropractic was first made available in the Medicare program, until today, Medicare beneficiaries have been covered for only one chiropractic service—manual manipulation of the spine—forcing them to access additional medically necessary care from other types of providers or to pay out of pocket for the services from their chiropractor.

Chiropractors are the only physician-level providers in the Medicare program whose services are restricted in this manner.

ACA Year to Date Update

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) recently sent out a mailer with their Year to Date Update, as of November 2018.

Following are some of the highlights:

In January 2018, President Trump signed into law the ACA-supported “Jobs for Our Heroes Act.” The law includes a provision allowing chiropractors working within the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to perform physical exams on veterans needing a medical certificate to operate a commercial motor vehicle.

In February 2018, ACA was successful in getting “The Chiropractic Health Parity for Military Beneficiaries Act” introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives. The bill would expand access to chiropractic to military retirees, dependents and survivors through the U.S. Department of Defense TRICARE program.

In March 2018, President Trump signed into law an ACA-championed plan to expand access to chiropractic to American veterans. The approved language calls for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to expand the availability of chiropractic services at no fewer than two medical centers or clinics in each Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN) by no later than Dec. 31, 2019, and at no fewer than 50 percent of all medical centers in each VISN by no later than Dec. 31, 2021.

Currently, veterans have access to chiropractic services at more than 70 major VA treatment facilities in the United States–but nearly 100 VA sites offer little to no availability.

In July 2018, ACA rallied chiropractic organizations from across the country to opposes a new policy by United Healthcare (UHC) that denied reimbursement for spinal manipulative therapy for the treatment of headache.

ACA drafted a letter to the UHC President and CEO that eventually included the names of leaders from 41 national, state and regional chiropractic associations. This effort was pulled together in just a few days after the UHC policy was announced.

Finally, in October 2018, the president signed into law ACA-supported legislation that protects chiropractors who travel with sports teams by ensuring that their license and liability insurance remains in effect even when they cross state lines.

Thanks to ACA, the Sports Medicine Licensure Clarity Act of 2018 was included in a larger, unrelated piece of legislation (R. 302) that passed the Senate overwhelmingly on Oct. 3rd.

The original version may have excluded chiropractors from the list of included “sports medicine professionals.”
