Low-back pain is the most common cause of disability worldwide, but it’s even more prevalent in active-duty military personnel. More than 50 percent of all diagnoses resulting in disability discharges from the military—across all armed services—are due to musculoskeletal conditions. Of these, low-back pain is the most common.

To address this widespread problem, the Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research at Palmer College of Chiropractic collaborated with the RAND Corporation and the Samueli Institute to conduct a large-scale, multi-site clinical trial studying the effectiveness of chiropractic care for active-duty military personnel with low-back pain. This study was one of three included as part of a $7.4 million, seven-year grant from the Department of Defense to these three institutions.

This is the largest randomized controlled trial to focus exclusively on chiropractic care to date. “Assessment of chiropractic treatment for active-duty, U.S. military personnel with low back pain: a randomized controlled trial (ACT I)” is completed and currently being prepared for publication. The study included 750 study participants across three military treatment facilities in the U.S, and compared 375 participants who received medical care only to 375 who received medical care plus chiropractic care.

This project was awarded the prestigious Scott Haldeman Award for Outstanding Research by the World Federation of Chiropractic at the March 16-18 DC2017 conference in Washington, D.C.

“We’re deeply honored to be recognized by our scientific peers for our research efforts in the military,” said Palmer College of Chiropractic Vice Chancellor for Research and Health Policy Christine Goertz, D.C., Ph.D., who accepted the award on behalf of co-authors Cynthia Long, Ph.D., Robert Vining, D.C., Katherine Pohlman, D.C., M.S., Joan Walter, J.D., P.A., and Ian Coulter, Ph.D., and other members of the ACT I team.

The winner of the Scott Haldeman Award for Outstanding Research was selected from all abstracts accepted for platform presentation at the DC2017 conference that haven’t been previously published. The presentations were judged on the content of the abstract and its platform presentation. Once the winning presentation has received “in press” status in a journal, the researchers will be awarded a $10,000 prize.

For Low Back Pain, the ACP Recommends Drug-Free Treatments First
The American College of Physicians (ACP) recently released brand-new guidelines regarding treatment for low back pain.† The Annals of Internal Medicine published the ACP's updated guidelines, which are based on a "systematic review of the evidence." This means that a variety of studies were reviewed that examined the effectiveness of both non-drug and drug-based low back pain treatments. Overwhelmingly, non-drug treatments came out ahead.† The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) fully backs these new recommendations, as chiropractic champions treatments without drugs and conservative approaches to back pain. Likewise, the guidelines recommend trying treatments like acupuncture, massage, heat therapy, and others for relief. If these don't work, then patients can try treatments like muscle relaxants or over-the-counter pain medication, like ibuprofen.† For patients who still have pain after trying all of the above, prescription drugs like opioids should only be used as a final measure. The reason is that opioids are notorious for being highly addictive and come with a risk of overdose Ė negatives which make them highly undesirable and to be used in extreme cases as a last resort option. As the ACA notes, the ACP's guidelines push the current in the right direction, as chiropractic has been proven effective for a wide array of bodily pain. Common treatments include spinal manipulation, physical therapy, and a combination of healthy diet and lifestyle changes

Multi-Tasking Surgeons: What People Donít Know

A recent study by the Journal of the American College of Surgeons looked at how many people had heard of something called "overlapping surgery." Overlapping Surgery is when a surgeon performs a critical part of an operation, then leaves a non-critical part to a different surgeon in training, or a physician's assistant, so they can head to a totally different surgery and do the same thing. A common scenario is when the main surgeon leaves closing incisions to an underling so they can move to a different procedure with a different patient. According to the study, although common practice, only a tiny margin of the people surveyed had heard of this practice (4% out of over 1,400 respondents). Almost all of the respondents thought that the patient should be informed of it before going under the knife. Specifically, they thought that patients should know who will perform what aspect of the surgery, including who would be in the room and the role of trainees. Therefore, if you or a loved one is going under the knife, ensure to thoroughly ask who will be involved with all aspects of the surgery so you remain fully informed.

Research Shows Link Between Obesity and Developing 11 Types of Cancer

According to a recent review of research by The BMJ, the tie between obesity and 11 different types of cancers has been strengthened. According to Reuters, the review looked at a larger group of hundreds of studies published in the past that specifically examined the relationship between obesity and 36 types of cancers. Scholars looked for signs that the already-established link between cancer and obesity had been exaggerated, and in the process found a stronger correlation between obesity and 11 specific cancers. In particular, cancers of the organs in the digestive tract as well as womenís reproductive organs were found to have the strongest links to obesity. These include kidney, colon, pancreas, and rectal cancer as well as bone marrow, ovarian, and breast cancer. In addition to these findings, the research review also found a strong connection between a high BMI (body mass index, which measures the ratio of weight to height) and cancers in the pancreas, kidney, esophagus, liver, and bone marrow. Excess weight carried around the midsection also has risk factors for cancer, as women with extra weight and belly fat were found to have an increased chance of developing endometrial cancer. In fact, the risk increases the higher the waist-to-hip ratio (the measurement for belly fat). The takeaway? People can lower their risk for cancer by staying at a consistently healthy weight.
