You have found yourself smack dab in the middle of Episode #221 Now if you missed last week’s episode, we talked about Sleep, Energy, and Pain & Depression and Rehab. Make sure you don’t miss that info. Keep up with the class. 

On the personal end of things…..

Business is still slowly creeping back up to where we’d like to see it. Now if the employee aspect of it will follow. So, I told you all we’d been a month since the 7-week front desk staffer we had quit.  So we’ve been hiring for a damn month. We found one but she needed to give her two-week notice. So we’ve been waiting on her to start.  So the Thursday before the Monday she’s supposed to start, she calls to let us know that she took another job. Holy guaca freakin moly.

Ya can’t make this stuff up. So we get in the horn….two weeks after we closed out the hiring process and started calling some of the old resumes. 

Luckily, our #2 answered and still wanted the job and she can start on Monday. The day the loser was supposed to start anyway. 

Hallelujah crap fire, save the queen, the new Batman is too damn emo and God bless America.

I’ll let you know if she lasts more than 7 weeks. I don’t have high hopes by this point in time. As the great Texas singer/songwriter Ray Wylie Hubbard once said, let’s rock n roll and hootchie coo. Here we go

Item #1

This one is called “Estimated Number of Deaths Prevented Through Increased Physical Activity Among US Adults” by Saint-Maruice et. al.  ( Saint-Maurice PF 2022) and published in Jama Internal Medicine on January 24, 2022……schiza!! It’s muy Caliente on my plate. That’s three languages right there people. 

Why They Did It

Previous studies suggest that a substantial number of deaths could be prevented annually by increasing population levels of physical activity. But they say previous attempts at quantifying it have been lackluster.  They accelerometer measurements 

  1. to examine the association of physical activity and mortality in the US
  2. to estimate the number of deaths prevented annually with modest increases in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA).

How They Did It

It doesn’t matter. Lol. Well, technically, of course, it matters. But, you’re not going to want to hear it. Sometimes, it’s like sausage. You really don’t want to see how it’s made. You just want to enjoy the results so….let’s just enjoy the results so y’all don’t tune out on me. 

Wrap It Up In this cohort study, we estimated that approximately 110,000 deaths per year could be prevented if US adults aged 40 to 85 years or older increased their moderate-to-vigorous physical activity by a small amount (ie, 10 minutes per day). 

Item #2 Our last one this week is called, “Steps per Day and All-Cause Mortality in Middle-aged Adults in the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults Study” by Paluch et. al.  and published in JAMA Network Open on September 3, 2021. 

Why They Did It

To estimate the association of steps per day with premature (age 41-65 years) all-cause mortality among Black and White men and women.

How They Did It

  • It was a prospective cohort study. 
  • Participants were aged 38 to 50 years and wore an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006. 
  • Participants were followed for a mean of 10.8 years. 
  • Daily steps volume, classified as 
  1. low (<7000 steps/d), 
  2. moderate (7000-9999 steps/d), and 
  3. high (≥10 000 steps/d) and 
  • Stepping intensity classified as 
  1. peak 30-minute stepping rate and 
  2. time spent at 100 steps/min or more.
  • All-cause mortality was the outcome measure.
  • A total of 2110 participants from the CARDIA study were included, 

Wrap It Up

This cohort study found that among men and women in middle adulthood, participants who took approximately 7000 steps/d or more experienced lower mortality rates compared with participants taking fewer than 7000 steps/d. There was no association of step intensity with mortality. So get moving rock n roll and hootchie coo. Like you know you’re supposed to do.  Alright, that’s it. Keep on keepin’ on. Keep changing our profession from your corner of the world. The world needs evidence-based, patient-centered practitioners driving the bus. The profession needs us in the ACA and involved in the leadership of state associations. So quit griping about the profession if you’re doing nothing to make it better. Get active, get involved, and make it happen. Let’s get to the message. Same as it is every week.

The Message

I want you to know with absolute certainty that when Chiropractic is at its best, you can’t beat the risk vs reward ratio because spinal pain is primarily a movement-related pain and typically responds better to movement-related treatment rather than chemical treatments like pills and shots. When compared to the traditional medical model, research and clinical experience show us patients can get good to excellent results for headaches, neck pain, back pain, and joint pain to name just a few. It’s safe and cost-effective can decrease surgeries & disability and we do it through conservative, non-surgical means with minimal hassle to the patient. And, if the patient treats preventatively after initial recovery, we can usually keep it that way while raising the overall level of health!

Key Point:

At the end of the day, patients should have the guarantee of having the best treatment that offers the least harm. When it comes to non-complicated musculoskeletal complaints…. That’s Chiropractic!
