Rank #3: Treating Back Pain: Avoiding Unnecessary Treatment

Podcast cover
Read more

September 19, 2013: Given the frequency of back pain, one might assume the health care system adheres to the most current guidelines that call to treat the condition conservatively, with over the counter pain medication and physical therapy. But a recent study from the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) suggests that back pain is often being over-treated with referrals to specialists, orders for expensive imaging, and prescriptions for pain medication.

In this episode, a physical therapist discusses the findings of this study and describes how the medical community’s understanding of back pain has evolved over the years, from once recommending bed rest to now recommending against it, for example.  He also provides tips for avoiding back pain in the first place.

Podcast cover

May 21, 2015: Spinal stenosis is a degenerative disease that causes a narrowing within vertebrae of the spinal column that results in pressure on the spinal cord. And while it may sound like a serious problem in need of an invasive medical procedure (such as surgery), a recently published study in the the Annals of Internal Medicine suggests that surgery should be considered only when other more conservative treatments, such as physical therapy, fail.

In this episode, we’ll talk to one of the authors of the study, physical therapist Anthony Delitto, PT, PhD, FAPTA, of the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh, about treatment of lumbar spinal stenosis and what patients need to know about options to avoid going under the knife.

Rank #13: Sports Psychology and Injury Rehabilitation

Podcast cover
Read more

November 6, 2014: An athlete with a torn anterior cruciate ligament faces a daunting rehabilitation challenge, with or without surgery.  A significant amount of physical therapy is likely to be involved to regain strength and range of motion. But the athlete’s body might not be the only thing that could benefit from treatment. Their thoughts and emotions could need rehabilitation as well.

Recent studies suggest that fear of reinjury is commonly cited among knee injury patients who don’t return to their sport. The body may be willing, but the mind may not.

In this episode, a sports psychologist from the Ohio Center for Sports Psychology and a physical therapist from the Cleveland Clinic discuss how an athlete’s belief in his or her ability to recover from any injury, and their understanding of the process to get there, can be key to returning to sport.

Rank #20: Blood Flow Restriction Training and Physical Therapy

Podcast cover
Read more

January 21, 2015: Improving strength is a typical component of physical rehabilitation after injury. But often standing in the way of all the muscle building necessary to recover from an injury is the injury itself.

While working at Brooke Army Medical Center, physical therapist Johnny Owens, MPT, saw wounded warriors who needed to improve strength in injured limbs without further compromising vulnerable joints or soft tissue. So he and his colleagues began experimenting with a relatively new treatment method that’s gaining in popularity: blood flow restriction training, or BFR.

The technique, which involves applying a tourniquet to an injured limb to partially restrict blood flow, allows patients to make greater strength gains while lifting lighter loads, thereby reducing the overall stress placed on the limb.

In this episode of Move Forward Radio, Johnny Owens, MPT, describes how blood flow restriction training works, shares his vision for the potential of the technique within health care, and discusses where research is ongoing.
