Initiating physical therapy at the onset of low back pain is better than ‘wait and see’ approach.

By Dr. Erik Hums, DPT, FAAOMPT, CSCS

Lower back pain is a condition that plagues an astonishing 61 percent of Americans, according to a 2012 survey by the American Physical Therapy Association. For years, many people who visit their physician while experiencing back pain have been told to follow the “wait and see” approach to monitor their symptoms before taking action. The “wait and see” approach may involve taking anti-inflammatory medications to temporarily relieve pain while monitoring symptoms. This delayed referral often has patients starting physical therapy 15-90 days after onset of pain, which is valuable recovery time.

Current research shows that this approach may not be the most effective. A systematic review of back pain patient outcomes illustrates that early initiation of physical therapy may decrease health costs and improve overall outcomes. Back pain treatment by a physical therapist can include manual therapy and manipulation, strengthening and flexibility exercises, education regarding proper lifting, bending, and sitting habits, and passive modalities such as heat, ice, and electrical stimulation to the affected area. By starting physical therapy at the onset of musculoskeletal pain, the patient may be able to avoid pain relief medications, painful injections, expensive advanced imaging, and invasive surgeries. Initiating physical therapy treatment early saves patients time and money, due to the high cost of the previously mentioned treatments and modalities.

Speech therapy program helps Parkinson’s patients regain speaking ability.

By Daniel McDonald

Bill Hustrulid is a storyteller.

He also was an engineering professor for many years, and a strong voice has been crucial to his work as a lecturer.

The Spokane resident is retired now – though he keeps himself busy authoring books – but maintaining his speaking abilities is as important as ever.

Hustrulid, 75, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease three years ago, and started noticing his voice getting weak – a symptom of Parkinson’s – when his wife began frequently asking him to repeat himself.

“It’s a very complicated disease,” he said. “Some days it’s better than others.”

Parkinson’s disease is a chronic and progressive disorder of the central nervous system involving neuron damage in the brain that causes dopamine levels to drop, impacting a person’s ability to control their movements. The cause is unknown, and while there is no cure, treatment options are available to manage the symptoms.

“It affects me every day,” Hustrulid said, adding, “In terms of having depression or feeling sorry for myself, I don’t.”

Every week, he participates in a therapy program brought to the Spokane area by Doreen Nicholas, a speech-language pathologist at Eastern Washington University, after she underwent training by Parkinson Voice Project, a Texas-based nonprofit dedicated to helping Parkinson’s patients retain their ability to speak.

It consists of two parts: Speak Out, a series of one-on-one sessions that help the patient regain their voice, followed by the Loud Crowd, weekly group therapy that helps them retain it.

Nicholas, director of the university’s Hearing and Speech Clinic, says the training she received from Parkinson Voice Project helps those with the disease regain and maintain their voice, while also offering graduate students there a valuable learning opportunity.

Saudi doctors fifth best in world


RIYADH: As many as 326 Saudi doctors and physicians enrolled for fellowship programs in the United States in the past three years, indicating an increase in the number of trainees in that country over the years. Moreover, the outstanding performance of Saudi doctors makes them the fifth best in the world in terms of specialist graduate rankings.

According to the Saudi cultural attaché in Washington, Mohammad Al-Essa, another batch of 62 doctors recently joined the program after passing the required test in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).

Approximately 50,000 doctors of all nationalities around the world have applied for the same program, said the report, adding that the program ensures integrity and fair opportunities for all applicants based on advanced research and evaluation methods.

Al-Essa said that when Saudi doctors first started traveling to the US to train, only 10 fulfilled the requirements each year. However, Saudi graduates now rank fifth in terms of the number of doctors from each country graduating every year.
