Dr. Oz is at it again. This time its cutting-edge treatments for low back pain. Granted he finally did get a PT on the show (better than just chiropractors!), but really, ultrasound? I would have hopped on the inversion table bandwagon before this modality. I thought we were over modalities by now, especially ultrasound? We do need to keep in mind this is TV but very popular and I’m sure a patient will ask you about it soon. See the segment for yourself here.
Has anyone recommended any of these stress reliever apps to their patients (see USA article here on 8 apps to de-stress)? I’m always in to trying to find improved self-adherence to de-stressing maneuvers and diaphragmatic breathing in particular.
