Kudos Greene County Public Health on the CoViD-19 vaccination effort! The experience was seamless and efficient in spite of early morning computer issues. The staff and volunteers were friendly and caring. I am so grateful for all the researchers from all branches of science all over the world who worked (and continue to work) so tirelessly in this effort to mitigate the negative effects and consequences of the SARS-2 coronavirus.

For your information, Phase 1A and Phase 1B are currently ongoing. If you are interested in signing up and being notified when you can receive your vaccine, follow this link to GCPH's website.

Institute of Clinical Excellence

It's time to stop being afraid of normal findings on MRI (or any other medical imaging for that matter).

It’s certainly time to stop being lured into unnecessary, risky, and invasive medical procedures based on normal findings being pitched as abnormal findings. All of the tissues in our body undergo changes in shape as we age, an entirely normal process that parallels the gift of another trip around the sun.

Just as our skin will wrinkle and our hair will gray, our intervertebral discs and vertebrae will develop cracks and bulges. Fortunately neither the wrinkles on your face OR the wrinkles in your spine tend to cause pain.

The evidence for this statement is robust, one example is the famous paper by Nakashima published a few years ago in the prestigious SPINE journal that is highlighted in the images here. Nakashima et al examined MR images of 1,211 ASYMPTOMATIC individuals (people with no neck pain) and found that nearly 88% of the images revealed intervertebral disc bulging at one or more levels.

In other words, 88 PERCENT of people across the lifespan who have no neck pain whatsoever have what radiologists routinely call “abnormal” images. Does that sound as ridiculous to you as it does to us?

If 88% of people that don’t have a problem have this going on how in the world can we call it abnormal? We can’t, we shouldn’t, and it needs to stop immediately.

Please share this information widely and let’s push back together on a harmful and inaccurate narrative that has led to massive unnecessary costs and overmedicalization.

Nakashima H, Yukawa Y, Suda K, Yamagata M, Ueta T, Kato F. Abnormal findings on magnetic resonance images of the cervical spines in 1211 asymptomatic subjects. Spine (Phila Pa 1976). 2015;40(6):392-398.

The science keeps supporting exercise as medicine

Picture look crazy? Taking it a bit too far perhaps? Tell us the research isn’t there (and trust us, the only thing limiting the length of this list is Instagram’s word count):

Depression: Journal of the American Medical Association Psychiatry (2018) Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of 33 publications: “Resistance exercise training significantly reduced depressive symptoms among adults regardless of health status...”

Metabolic Syndrome: Mayo Clinical Proceedings (2017) Prospective cohort of 7,418: “Less than 1 hour of weekly resistance training exercise was associated with 29% lower risk of development of metabolic syndrome”

Infection Susceptibility: The Lancet (2020) Systematic Review and Meta Analysis of 55 publications: “Regular physical activity should be promoted to decrease the risk of community acquired infection and infectious mortality disease, strengthen the potency of immunisation programme and lessen the impact of pandemics such as the recent COVID-19”

All Cause Mortality: British Medical Journal (2020) Prospective cohort trial of 479,856: “Adults who engage in leisure time aerobic and muscle strengthening activities at levels recommended by the 2018 physical activity guidelines for Americans show greatly reduced risk of all cause and cause specific mortality”

Let’s say you have two options to help a patient with a condition. One of them is a drug that may indeed help ameliorate symptoms of the current complaint but will likely come with a few negative side effects of varying severities AND MORE IMPORTANTLY WILL HAVE ZERO POSITIVE SIDE EFFECTS. The other option will also ameliorate current symptoms but is completely devoid of negative side effects but chock full of positive side effects that improve virtually every other aspect of a person’s life while also happening to elongate it. HOW DO YOU CHOOSE THE FIRST ONE? Perhaps it’s time to put a check box on those prescription pads for assault bikes, barbells, and jump ropes. Call us crazy if you will but please bring your research when you do, we showed you ours

To think like a "caring clinician"

Can Herd Immunity Save Us from COVID-19? | ASA Monitor | American Society of Anesthesiologists

"For now, the most important science describes the actions we can take, as citizens, to help stop the transmission of this virus. As succinctly summarized by Dr. Haseltine: “Every American also has a role to play and an opportunity to stamp out this disease. By wearing masks, practicing safe social distancing, and choosing the inconvenience of self-isolation when we fear we’ve been exposed to infection, we can stop this outbreak dead in its tracks."
