Updated Nutritional Supplement Unit Conversion Factors

In May 2016, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced regulations that require amendments to the existing supplement facts label, which uses units and conversions based on the 1968 Recommended Daily Allowances (RDA).

The new regulations will be mandatory in 2019-2020. Voluntary compliance prior to that date is permitted, and it is expected that there will be a period of time when both types of labels will be on the market.

The changes that will affect the application of DSID results are the changes in the units used to declare vitamins and minerals on supplement labels.

The FDA will permit manufacturers to include the amounts of nutrients in the old units in parentheses adjacent to the amounts in the new units.

For example, when looking at Vitamin A units, presently designated in IU measurements, the updated Unit of Measurement will be listed as mcg RAE, the latter referring to Retinol Activity Equivalent.

Effect of Exercise Therapy on Inflammation Biomarkers

A recent study was published in the journal Arthritis Care and Research to investigate the impact of exercise therapy on molecular biomarkers related to cartilage and inflammation in people at risk of, or with established, knee osteoarthritis by conducting a systematic review of randomized controlled trials (RCTs).

Literature search up to September 2017 in five major databases with no restriction on publication year or language.

The study concluded that exercise therapy is not harmful, as it does not increase the concentration of molecular biomarkers related to cartilage turnover and inflammation, implicated in osteoarthritis progression.

The overall quality of evidence was downgraded to low because of the limited number of RCTs available.

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

Chiropractors and Limiting Opioid Treatments

A recent study in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings, was published to examine patients seeking care for neck pain to determine associations between the type of provider initially consulted and 1-year health care utilization.

A retrospective cohort of 1702 patients (69.25% women, average age, 45.32±14.75 years) with a new episode of neck pain who consulted a primary care provider, physical therapist (PT), chiropractor (DC), or specialist from January 1, 2012, to June 30, 2013, was analyzed. Descriptive statistics were calculated for each group, and subsequent 1-year health care utilization of imaging, opioids, surgery, and injections was compared between groups.

Compared with initial primary care provider consultation, patients consulting with a DC or PT had decreased odds of being prescribed opioids within 1 year from the index visit.

The study concluded that initially consulting with a non-pharmacological provider may decrease opioid exposure (PT and DC) over the next year and also decrease advanced imaging and injections (DC only).

These data provide an initial indication of how following recent practice guidelines may influence health care utilization in patients with a new episode of neck pain.

Sexual activity after spine surgery

Sexual function is an important determinant of quality of life, and factors such as surgical approach, performance of fusion, neurological function and residual pain can affect it after spine surgery.

The aim of a recent study published in the European Spine Journal, was to perform a systematic review to collate evidence regarding the impact of spine surgery on sexual function.

A systematic review of studies reporting measures of sexual function, and incidence of adverse sexual outcomes after major spine surgery was done, regardless of spinal location.

The study conclude that despite limited evidence from high-quality articles, there is a general trend towards improvement of sexual activity and function after spine surgery.

Future studies incorporating specific assessments of sexual activity will be required to address this important determinant of quality of life so that appropriate pre-operative counseling can be done by providers.

Chronic Conditions and Re-Integration into Work 

Due to low employment rates associated to chronic conditions in Europe, it is essential to foster effective integration and re-integration into work strategies.

The objective of a systematic review published in the journal Environmental Research and Public Health, was to summarize the evidence on the effectiveness of strategies for integration and re-integration to work for persons with chronic diseases or with musculoskeletal disorders, implemented in Europe in the past five years.

Positive changes in employment status, return to work and sick leave outcomes were achieved with graded sickness-absence certificates, part-time sick leave, early ergonomic interventions for back pain, disability evaluation followed by information and advice, and with multidisciplinary, coordinated and tailored return to work interventions.

Additionally, a positive association between the co-existence of active labour market policies to promote employment and passive support measures (e.g., pensions or benefits) and the probability of finding a job was observed.

Research on the evaluation of the effectiveness of strategies targeting integration and re-integration into work for persons with chronic health conditions needs, however, to be improved and strengthened.

Diet and Telomere Length

A recent Metagenics’ Blog discussed how Diet influences Telomere length.

Telomeres are the DNA-protein caps found at both ends of eukaryotic chromosomes. They serve to protect the chromosome from degradation, unnecessary recombination, deleterious repairs at the chromosome ends, and interchromosomal fusion.

The length of the cell’s telomeres shorten with every cell division and, upon reaching a critical length, trigger the cell to either undergo the process of (programmed cell death) or senescence (cells stop dividing and enter state of permanent growth arrest).

This natural cycle indicates that cells possess a limited number of divisions. Telomeres, in essence, serve as a cell’s “biological clock,” influencing the lifespan of the cell and the organism overall.

The shorter the telomere, the shorter the remaining lifespan, and, in humans, shorter telomere length is associated with an increased risk of chronic illness development, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and certain forms of cancers.

There is a rapidly growing body of evidence supporting the idea that the way one lives their daily life and particularly the dietary quality one regularly consumes will influence how long they live and their quality of life.

Recent research demonstrates the significance of foods, food groups, or specific nutrients in foods in supporting telomere health, by facilitating a deceleration of telomere shortening.

Non-surgical Interventions for Managing Adhesive Capsulitis

A systematic review, published in the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, evaluated the effectiveness of non-surgical interventions for managing adhesive capsulitis (AC) in patients with diabetes on pain, function and range of motion.

MEDLINE and other databases were searched for studies published in the last 20 years.

Randomized clinical trials (RCTs) that assessed adhesive capsulitis in people with diabetes and implemented one or a combination of physiotherapeutic interventions, corticosteroids, and manipulation under anesthesia (MUA) were eligible for inclusion.

The study concluded that low quality evidence suggests large effects of joint mobilization plus exercises on adhesive capsulitis in people with diabetes, although confidence in this conclusion is limited due to at the high risk of bias.

Even weaker support was available for corticosteroid and MUA.

Future high quality RCTs are needed to determine the best intervention for managing AC in patients with diabetes.

Chiropractors Traveling with Sports Teams

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) is pleased to announce that Congress has approved legislation that will protect chiropractors who travel with sports teams by ensuring that their license and liability insurance remains in effect even when they cross state lines.

The Sports Medicine Licensure Clarity Act of 2018, as the bill is known, was included in a larger, unrelated piece of legislation (H.R. 302) that passed the Senate overwhelmingly on Oct. 3. The president is expected to sign the bill in the next several days.

The new law stipulates that health care services provided by a covered “sports medicine professional” to an athlete, athletic team, or team staff member in a secondary state outside that professional’s state of licensure will be covered by the appropriate medical malpractice insurance provider.

COT’s HealthBeat recommends contacting your local/state authorities for clarity and confirmation.

Exercise and Improved Cognition

A new study by a Massachusetts General Hospital research team found that exercise is one of the best ways to turn on neurogenesis, the process of producing new neurons. Neurogenesis takes place in the hippocampus and striatum, and is essential to learning and memory.

Because beneficial effects on cognition are often blocked in patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) due to the “hostile inflammatory environment” in the brain, the MGH team set out to see what impact adult hippocampal neurogenesis (AHN) has on AD pathology and if this could reduce symptoms associated with AD.

They demonstrated that exercise did, in fact, induce neurogenesis in the mouse model, and they were also able to mimic these beneficial effects through gene therapy and pharmacological agents. What they found was that the animals with AHN induced by exercise showed improved cognitive performance and reduced levels of beta-amyloid.

The new neurons in the other cohort, however, induced by gene and pharmacological therapy, could not survive in the brain already ravaged by AD.

The study concluded “the key difference was that exercise also turned on the production of brain-derived neurotrophicfactor (BDNF), which is known to be important for the growth and survival of neurons.”  BDNF helped create a more hospitable brain environment for the new neurons to survive. [Thus,] “by combining drugs and gene therapy that both induced neurogenesis and increasing BDNF production, they were able to successfully mimic the effects of exercise on cognitive function.”

Creating new nerve cells is not enough. Survival and growth of new cells is dependent on a hospitable “cleaned up” environment, which exercise was found to foster.

Chiropractic and Maintenance Care

For individuals with recurrent or persistent non-specific low back pain (LBP), exercise and exercise combined with education have been shown to be effective in preventing new episodes or in reducing the impact of the condition.

Chiropractors have traditionally used Maintenance Care (MC), as secondary and tertiary prevention strategies. The aim of this trial was to investigate the effectiveness of MC on pain trajectories for patients with recurrent or persistent LBP.

The study concluded that Maintenance Care was more effective than symptom-guided treatment in reducing the total number of days over 52 weeks with bothersome non-specific LBP but it resulted in a higher number of treatments. For selected patients with recurrent or persistent non-specific LBP who respond well to an initial course of chiropractic care, Maintenance Care should be considered an option for tertiary prevention.

Rejected Medicare CMS 1500 Forms

The ANJC in New Jersey recently reported on rejection of Medicare CMS 1500 Forms.

The ANJC reported that they have heard from numerous members who have received rejections from Medicare due to a format issue concerning dates on the CMS 1500 claim submission form.

The NJ regional Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC), Novitas, began rejecting claims that did not have the proper date formatting as of July 30, 2018.

The article goes on to discuss specific requirements for the Novitas MAC.

COT’s HealthBeat recommends contacting your local MAC or State Association for specifics related to your specific requirements.

Resistance Training Volume Enhances Muscle Hypertrophy

The purpose of a recent study, published in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, was to evaluate muscular adaptations between low-, moderate-, and high-volume resistance training (RT) protocols in resistance-trained men.

Thirty-four healthy resistance-trained men were randomly assigned to 1 of 3 experimental groups: a low-volume group (1SET) performing 1 set per exercise per training session; a moderate-volume group (3SET) performing 3 sets per exercise per training session; or a high-volume group (5SET) performing 5 sets per exercise per training session.

The study concluded that marked increases in strength and endurance can be attained by resistance-trained individuals with just three, 13-minute weekly sessions over an 8-week period, and these gains are similar to that achieved with a substantially greater time commitment.

Alternatively, muscle hypertrophy follows a dose-response relationship, with increasingly greater gains achieved with higher training volumes.

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

Multifidus muscle size changes at different directions of head and neck movements in females

The aim of a recent study, published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, was to compare the dimensions of cervical multifidus muscle (CMM) in different conditions.

Twenty-five women with neck pain and 25 healthy subjects participated in this study. The dimensions of the cervical multifidus muscle were measured at rest, 50% and 100% maximum isometric voluntary contraction (MIVC) at six directions of neck movements, using ultrasonography.

The study concluded that the size of cervical multifidus muscle was decreased in patients with neck pain in rest state. The size of cervical multifidus muscle changes in all directions of neck movements, although the most prominent was during neck extension.

This points out cervical multifidus muscle stabilization role’s in different directions of neck movements.

Leg press exercise can reduce functional hamstring:quadriceps ratio in the elderly

The aim of a recent study, published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, was to investigate whether 12 weeks of leg press strength training exercise could affect the conventional and functional hamstring:quadriceps ratios in the elderly.

Twelve elderly participants were submitted to a 12 week progressive training protocol (two sessions/week) using a 45° leg press exercise.

A significant increase in the one repetition maximum was observed after 4, 8, and 12 weeks compared to week 0 and after 8 and 12 weeks compared to week 4.

The study concluded that although the 45° leg press exercise requires knee extensor and flexor, hip extensor, and plantar flexor muscle strength, the author’s findings suggest that the isolated use of the 45° leg press exercise reduces the knee functional ratio after 8 weeks of training.

Therefore, 45° leg press exercise alone, without a hamstring exercise, should not be recommended for elderly individuals.

As always, COT’s HealthBeat recommends discussing all Exercise recommendations with your Qualified Health Care Provider.
