Researchers: Spinal Manipulation for Low Back Pain Comparable to NSAIDs: Pain Medicine News

This is a great paper published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. After performing a retrospective review of the scientific literature researchers at the Veterans Administration West Los Angeles Medical Center found that spinal manipulative therapy was as effective as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines for low back pain lasting 6 weeks or less. What the paper doesn’t address is the complications that can occur from the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications which are commonly used by many to manage chronic pain. Severe side effects such as GI bleeding lands thousands of patients in the local emergency departments every year. So one needs to ask, why use non-steroidal medicines for acute low back pain at all? Shouldn’t doctors be referring patients for spinal manipulation instead of giving patients pills? Something to think about.

News & Press: AIPM News- Calling For An Integrative Approach To Pain Management

This is a great piece from the Academy of Integrative Pain Management, formerly known as the American Academy of Pain Management. There are many issues facing more than 100 million American chronic pain sufferers.

Why do we have so many barriers to conservative multi-disciplinary medical care? Why do we continue to create legions of opiod users, or perform surgeries for pain, which can oftentimes have poor outcomes. As I often say, “the health insurance will pay for your bypass surgery, but they won’t pay for an office visit to teach you how to eat healthy.” It really is ridiculous.

In the US we have enormous challenges facing the American public with health insurance and the lack of healthcare choices. Please read the following post which contains a link to the full paper with multiple authors:

New Services and Consumer Reports on Back Pain Treatment

I would like to let everyone know that we have expanded our services even more!

Here is a list of NEW services for patients who suffer from a variety of health concerns:

ECSWT: Commonly called shockwave therapy, this painless treatment is an excellent tool that can be used for many muscle and tendon issues such as plantar fasciitis, shoulder pain, hip pain, frozen shoulder, and tennis elbow, to name a few. When combined with other treatments such as laser therapy or acupuncture, the results are amazing!

Laser Nail Fungus Treatment: This new type of laser helps to eradicate finger or toe nail fungus in a few short treatments. Living with nail fungus is very unhealthy as it can become worse and infect other nails. This is especially important if you have a condition such as diabetes. So get on top of this quickly. Oral medicines are toxic to your liver and topical medicines only work 10% of the time. So call today for a consultation.

NEW Weight Loss Programs: The 500 calorie diet is back, but without having to take potentially dangerous hormones. We also to continue to recommend the low glycemic diet, the T-360 program, as well and the low carb healthy fat diet. So if you are a diabetic, or have any number of metabolic illnesses such as high blood pressure, high LDLs, etc, you owe it to yourself to look into a weight loss program. NOTHING reverses metabolic disease as fast as dietary change. You cannot medicate yourself to wellness!

Lipo Light Laser Treatment: This low level laser therapy lights up your fat and melts it away. This has become a super popular treatment. I have personally seen 7 inches come off a patient’s waistline. This is non-invasive and painless, and best of all it works great.

HILT/HPLT: High power laser therapy is another new addition to the practice. It is a great option for many pain conditions because is not only uses very high power, but it uses a different wavelength of light.

Lastly, here is a link to a great article in Consumer Reports on the best way to diagnose and treat lower back pain. I think you will find it very informative.

So, please feel free to contact our office to discuss our services and to help you get well and stay well!

Statin Use Increases Diabetes 44%, Study Shows

This is a very interesting paper published in nutritional metabolism and cardiovascular disease in March of 2017. In a meta-analysis investigators looked at 20 studies which included a thousand subjects and found that people who were using statins had a 44% increased risk of developing diabetes compared to those who are not ​using ​​the d​rug. Similar results ​have​ also been published from other shorter-term studies. ​

Developing diabetes from statin medications increases the longer the medication is used​,​ and with higher doses. I have spoken extensively to patients on the use of statin medications to manage cholesterol. I w​ill not ​even get into the whole issue of ​who ​should ​taking this drug to begin with. Many experts feel it is over prescribed. None-the-less this just adds to the argument that many people​,​ if not most people​,​ should not be using this very dangerous drug.

Lifestyle modification and healthy eating is clearly the way to go when it comes to managing cholesterol. Eliminating sugar and reducing carbohydrate consumption and adding healthy fats into the diet is your best insurance for protecting your heart. It’s ironic that we’re trying to protect people from heart disease and ​as a result of statin use they’re developing diabetes​,​ which opens the door to not only heart disease​,​ but many other complications.

Dry Needling Improves Spinal Mobility, Reduces Pain in Fibromyalgia, Study Finds

A treatment for fibromyalgia known as dry needling reduces pain stemming from trigger points and increases spinal mobility, according to a clinical study.

The technique uses needles to affect sensitive points in the muscle, which cause pain in seemingly unrelated body parts. Inactivating these trigger points appears to decrease pain.

The study, “Effects of Dry Needling on Spinal Mobility and Trigger Points in Patients with Fibromyalgia Syndrome,” was published in Pain Physician Journal and reported the results of a clinical trial (NCT02380807).

So who should one see for dry needling? See only a professionally trained board certified acupuncturist. Be wary of practitioners with weekend certifications and only see healthcare professionals with thousands of hours of training.

American College of Physicians Issues Guideline For Treating Non-radicular Low Back Pain

Finally some common sense! The American College of physicians have published a new low back pain treatment guideline that includes acupuncture and spinal manipulation (among other therapies) to help patients with low back pain. In addition, they frown upon using narcotic type medications for this condition.

The article goes on to say:

“Low back pain is one of the most common reasons for all physician visits in the U.S. Most Americans have experienced low back pain. Approximately one quarter of U.S. adults reported having low back pain lasting at least one day in the past three months. Pain is categorized as acute (lasting less than four weeks), subacute (lasting four to 12 weeks, and chronic (lasting more than 12 weeks).” For the entire article please click here.
