Am I Damaging My Tendons? (with Jill Cook, PhD)

Achilles. Rotator cuff. Patella. Hamstring. They're all structures involving tendons, and you probably either know someone who's injured them, or have experienced the dreaded tendon injury yourself. Aaron Rodgers experienced an acute Achilles tendon rupture on Monday Night Football in September 2023, just 4 plays into his first season as QB for the New York Jets. Fans watched as he dramatically pulled up lame after a tackle, having snapped his Achilles, and subsequently sitting out the 2023 season. Just this week he stated in an interview "my summer ends Sunday", confirming that he is back to play this upcoming 2024 football season for the Jets. So what the heck is actually going on? Why do tendons hurt sometimes? Why do they snap? Is it all just degenerative, "getting old"-type stuff? How can we prevent an injury like Rodgers' from happening to US?? In this episode, we reveal it all, friends! We have a world’s expert in tendon pathology, treatment and injury prevention to tell us why our tendons get injured, what we can do to treat them and most importantly, the things we can do prevent them from breaking down. Jill Cook, PhD is a professor in musculoskeletal health in the La Trobe Sport and Exercise Medicine Research Centre at La Trobe University in Melbourne Australia. Jill's research areas include sports medicine and tendon injury. She is the "tendon guru" and has dedicated her career to learning about and improving our care of tendons. Jeremy recently had the privilege of attending Jill's educational lecture at the NBA Team Physician's national meeting, and she so graciously agreed to be our guest for this episode! Your Doctor Friends bring the professional-level expert education straight to you, friends! Topics covered in today's episode include: What actually ARE tendons? What do they do? Types of tendon injuries- including acute tears, "overuse" injuries, and degenerative "wear and tear". Risk factors associated with tendon injuries. What is "tendinopathy"? Is it there forever? What is the role of imaging/MRI in the diagnosis and treatment of tendon injury? What about shots? Do cortisone or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections help in tendon injuries? How do you actually treat tendinopathy? Can it be "cured"? Thanks for tuning in, friends! Please sign up for our “PULSE CHECK” monthly newsletter!

Am I “Winning” at Fitness? (V02 max and MORE with Phil Skiba, DO)

Do you remember "Presidential Physical Fitness” testing from youth? Can you name all 6 of the “classic” tests it included? Fun fact: (according to a Feb. 2024 NYT article) Born of Cold War-era fears that America was becoming “soft,” the test was first introduced by President Lyndon Johnson in 1966.  The goal was to improve the fitness of the nation’s youth for military service. The original test also included a softball throw, which mimicked throwing a grenade So if you don’t have antiquated mid-century calisthenics metrics to tell you if you’re fit/athletic, what can you use? How can you know if you’re WINNING AT FITNESS?? What’s an average human to do? Your Doctor Friends came across NYT article titled “This Test Might Be the Best Way to Track Fitness and Longevity” which focused on V02 max. The article presents the pros and cons of using V02 max as a valid, objective measure of cardiopulmonary fitness. Your Doctor Friends decided to reach out to our Exercise Physiology MASTER EXPERT, to break it down for y’all! Welcome, Philip Skiba, DO! Dr. Skiba is the outgoing Director of Sports Medicine/Fellowship Director for Advocate Health - Chicago, where he served for 12 years Dr. Skiba founded the Advocate Human Performance and Biomechanics Laboratories, helping amateur, elite and professional athletes explore their limits using state-of-the-art technology.

Dr. Skiba serves on the medical boards of both USA Triathlon and USA Cycling and accompanied Team USA to the World Championships in Australia.  Unusual for a physician, he has also personally coached dozens of world-class athletes.

He remains a familiar presence in print and broadcast journalism.

Information Blocking By Your Provider Is Illegal (Republished/Updated Episode)

Over 60% of patients say that having fast electronic access to their complete medical record is important. It is a safety issue, a quality issue and your legal right. The 21st Century Cures Act went into effect in 2021, but the Federal Government just decided on the penalties incurred by providers if they create any unnecessary hassle in making your records available. Kelsey's story is about the hassle she faced in the healthcare system including how hard it was to simply get a copy of her radiology report. Key Takeaway: Know Your Rights Under the 21st Century Cures Act Examples of Information Blocking Requesting lab, xray or biopsy results and being told, "Wait for your next visit so the doctor can discuss it with you." Lack of access to the clinical notes written about you in the office or hospital by your doctor, specialists or other ancillary providers (ie physical therapist, social work) Charging excessive fees for access to your medical records. Tip: Request digital/electronic access to information because the "reasonable" cost for paper requests can get pricey. Delay or refusal to transfer of medical records to another doctor/specialist/provider What To Do If You Think Information Blocking Is Happening To You Know how to log in to your healthcare portal Sign any forms required for sharing/transferring information Mention your right to information under the 21st Centure Cures Act. Contact the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) to report potential information blocking. Use the OIG Hotline via the web at https://oig.hhs.gov/fraud/report-fraud/index.asp or by phone at 1-800-HHS-TIPS (1-800-447-8477).

UPDATE: Is Gun Violence a Public Health Problem? (with Garen Wintemute, MD, MPH)

The United States Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Murthy, declared this week that gun violence in the US is a public health crisis. Dr. Murthy publicly stated, in a 39-page advisory, that the U.S needs to treat gun violence in the same way we have tackled smoking or car crashes. Deaths caused by guns rose to the highest in three decades in 2021. In 2020, firearm-related injuries became the leading cause of death of children and adolescents aged 1-19. Gun-related deaths for youths were higher than car accidents, cancer, and heart disease. To quote Dr. Murthy,  “I want people to understand the full impact of firearm violence in our country, and I want them to see it as a public health issue. I know it’s been polarizing and I know it’s been politicized, but if we can see it as a public health issue, we can come together and implement a public health solution.” Also, this week marks two years since since the mass shooting at the July 4th parade in Jeremy's hometown of Highland Park, Illinois that killed seven people, and injured many more. Your Doctor Friends decided it was timely to re-release last year's Independence Day episode. Our expert for this episode is THE INCOMPARABLE Garen Wintemute MD, MPH: Dr. Wintemute is Distinguished Professor of Emergency Medicine and Baker–Teret Chair in Violence Prevention at the University of California, Davis. He is the founding director of the Violence Prevention Research Program there and of the California Firearm Violence Research Center, the nation’s first publicly-funded center for research in this field. Trained initially as a biologist at Yale University, Dr. Wintemute attended medical school and residency at UC Davis and studied epidemiology and injury prevention at The Johns Hopkins University. He practices and teaches emergency medicine at UC Davis Medical Center, a Level I trauma center, and is a public health leader in the world of violence prevention Key highlights in this episode include: Background in the history of gun violence in the US. Where are we now? What makes the US unique in its struggle with gun violence? What's the history of legislation re: gun violence (including assault-type weapons) prevention? Are there actually more mass shootings now than in previous years? Does Chicago have more gun violence than other major cities? Why is Chicago so often highlighted? What is the mental health toll that gun violence takes? How is this being addressed? What can people do to make a difference in gun violence prevention? Dr. Wintemute recommends the following resources to learn about gun violence prevention: The "What Can You Do" Initiative via UC Davis Health.

Am I Doing Sunscreen Wrong? (with Vidya Shivakumar, MD)

We know we are supposed to wear sunscreen. We know sun exposure can increase our risk for skin cancer. So how do we reconcile our desire for that "desirable summer glow" with the risk of medical harm? Your Doctor Friends get these texts all the time, especially post-summer solstice: "If I wear sunscreen, what SPF should I use? Is chemical or mineral better? Is it actually waterproof? And I’ve heard it can get into my bloodstream, what's that all about??"  Friends, are you ready to soak up the sun…safely? As is standard with Your Doctor Friends, we were able to find one of OUR doctor friends to come on and clear this all up. Welcome Vidya Shivakumar, MD! Dr. Shivakumar is a Dermatologist at Rush University Medical Center, board-certified by the American Academy of Dermatology since 2015. She provides comprehensive skin (and all things Dermatology) care at her bustling academic practice in Chicago at RUSH. She is active in research, teaching, and has presented many times in both the community setting, scientific arena, and in news media. AND NOW she graciously agreed to come chat with us to give us the scoop on the goop we put on our skin to protect ourselves from the sun! Topics covered in today's episode include: What is a sunburn? What are short and long term consequences of a sunburn? Why do some people burn and some people tan? Does this change people’s risk of harm? Do burns affect kids skin differently than adult skin? Are there long term consequences to burns earlier in life? Is there a right or wrong way to put on sunscreen? What is the best SPF to choose? What's the difference between chemical and mineral sunscreen? Is it actually waterproof? When should we reapply? If I wear sunscreen, does that mean I won't tan? What's better, aerosol or regular tube form? Can I become vitamin D deficient from wearing sunscreen? What about "oral sunscreen", or "sunburn reduction pills"? Do they work? Does that take the place of regular sunscreen application? Here are some great FAQs from the American Academy of Dermatology about sunscreen. Thanks for tuning in, friends!
