You have found yourself smack dab in the middle of Episode #330 Now if you missed last week’s episode, we talked about The WHO’s Sources For Opinion On Spinal Manipulative Therapy (Part 13). Make sure you don’t miss that info. Keep up with the class.

On the personal end of things….. What a week so far…..it’s always something isn’t it? While we are still working on the staffer in a bad relationship that I discussed last week, we had what we call a turdfloater here in the Texas panhandle. That rain and hail storm caused an already problematic roof to become even more problematic. Now we have three massage/acupuncture rooms that have wet carpets and smell moldy. This smell has permeated and percolated throughout the entire office now. Also, SONOS decided to do another update and now my music won’t play through the office. The IT guy is working on it. So, if you’ve heard me say that owning a clinic is like a big game of whack-a-mole…..it is. Something new daily. If not daily, definitely weekly.

But, all in all, I have to say, this has been one of the best months business-wise that I’ve had since before COVID. It’s a Tuesday and I have 153 lined up for the week. We know that will increase because Wednesday appointments will reschedule for Friday so it’s looking like a solid week.

Our acupuncturist has 31 on the schedule this week and our nurse practitioner has only 26 which is down from last week but, again, I’m typing this out on a Tuesday.

We use BlueIQ and we are FAR ahead of expectations for the month of May at the moment and it’s showing no signs of lightening up. I’m back to using my 7 account system and putting money away…..I have some staffing issues but overall, things are looking pretty positive. You get to hear me gripe when the tide is against me. You might as well hear me be positive when I’m going with the tide.

Item #1 The first one today is called “Association between chiropractic spinal manipulative therapy and benzodiazepine prescription in patients with radicular low back pain: a retrospective cohort study using real-world data from the USA” by Trager et. Al. and published in BMJ Open in June of 2022 Remember, the citations can be found at chiropracticforward.com under this episode. Trager RJ, Cupler ZA, DeLano KJ, Perez JA, Dusek JA. Association between chiropractic spinal manipulative therapy and benzodiazepine prescription in patients with radicular low back pain: a retrospective cohort study using real-world data from the USA. BMJ Open. 2022 Jun 13;12(6):e058769. doi: 10.1136/bmjopen-2021-058769. PMID: 35697464; PMCID: PMC9196200.

Why They Did It Although chiropractic spinal manipulative therapy (CSMT) and prescription benzodiazepines are common treatments for radicular low back pain (rLBP), no research has examined the relationship between these interventions. We hypothesize that utilization of SMT for newly diagnosed rLBP is associated with reduced odds of benzodiazepine prescription through 12 months follow-up.

How They Did It Retrospective cohort study. Setting: National, multicentre 73-million-patient electronic health records-based network (TriNetX) in the USA, queried on 30 July 2021, yielding data from 2003 to the date of query.

Participants: Adults aged 18-49 with an index diagnosis of rLBP were included. Serious etiologies of low back pain, structural deformities, alternative neurological lesions and absolute benzodiazepine

Outcome measures: The number, percentage and OR of patients receiving a benzodiazepine prescription over 3, 6 and 12 months’ follow-up prematching and postmatching.

What They Found 9206 patients per cohort. Odds of receiving a benzodiazepine prescription were significantly lower in the CSMT cohort over all follow-up windows prematching and postmatching Sensitivity analysis suggested a patient preference to avoid prescription medications did not explain the study findings.

Wrap It Up These findings suggest that receiving CSMT for newly diagnosed rLBP is associated with reduced odds of receiving a benzodiazepine prescription during follow-up. These results provide real-world evidence of practice guideline-concordance among patients entering this care pathway.

Item #2 Our second paper today is called, “Efficacy of topical curcumin on mild to moderate carpal tunnel syndrome: a randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial” by Razavi et al and published in Pain Medicine in May of 2024 and it’s a hot one, folks!! Athena Sharifi Razavi, Fatemeh Mohajerani, Fatemeh Niksolat, Narges Karimi, Efficacy of topical curcumin on mild to moderate carpal tunnel syndrome: a randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, Pain Medicine, Volume 25, Issue 5, May 2024, Pages 327–333, https://doi.org/10.1093/pm/pnae001

Why They Did It Recently, there has been a renewed interest in traditional medicine for carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Curcumin has been reported as an agent with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and neuroprotective attributes. This study is one of the first investigations to assess the effect of curcumin gel on CTS.

How They Did It

  • This study is a prospective, 8-week, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel-group clinical trial.
  • A total of 70 patients with CTS were analyzed.
  • The intervention group (n = 35) received a topical curcumin gel and a night wrist splint and the control group (n = 35) received a placebo gel and a night wrist splint for 8 weeks.
  • The primary outcome was the assessment of the symptom severity scale (SSS) and functional status scale (FSS) of the participants using the Boston Carpal Tunnel Questionnaire (BCTQ) after 8 weeks. In addition, all participants were evaluated by electrodiagnostic (EDX) test at baseline and after 8 weeks.

What They Found

  • The mean scores of SSS demonstrated a significant decrease in the curcumin group compared to the placebo group; P-value= 0.021.
  • The mean change score of SSS after the intervention was 12.45 ± 8.18 in curcumin and 3.28 ± 7.06 in the placebo group; P-value =0.0001 and the mean change score of FSS were 6.24 ± 4.91 and 2.31 ± 4.95 in curcumin and placebo groups, respectively; P-value =0.002.
  • However, the EDX study showed no significant changes in both groups.

Wrap It Up

It seems that curcumin gel could be effective in the improvement of the symptom severity and daily activity of patients with CTS. 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 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!
