What Is the #1 Disability for Active Military Personnel?

You guessed it, back pain. What a shame. I have mentioned before the rise of back pain disability in this country and the world (It is the #1 cause of disability!!).

Here is an article focused mostly on the drugs, shots and surgery offered back pain sufferers in the military, and how that amounts to the “poster child of inefficient spine care.”

“The DoD readily admits that 20 percent of disabled vets and 30 percent of hospitalizations stem from low back pain, which has become the largest disabling condition among active forces. According to research done in 2000 by Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, “Unintentional and Musculoskeletal Injuries Greatest Threat to Military Personnel,” “in all three branches of the service, injuries and musculoskeletal conditions resulted in more soldiers missing time from work than any other health condition.”13

A Johns Hopkins study 10 years later found that the top reasons for medical evacuation from Iraq and Afghanistan are musculoskeletal disorders, not combat injuries. In the study, “Back Pain Permanently Sidelines Soldiers at War: Few Rejoin Units in Iraq or Afghanistan Regardless of Treatment,” researchers examined the records of more than 34,000 military personnel evacuated from Iraq and Afghanistan between January 2004 and December 2007. They found that 24 percent had musculoskeletal disorders, compared to only 14 percent who had suffered combat injuries.”

It’s gotten so bad that the terms “Disability Industrial Complex” are used to describe, essentially, the economics of profiting from this suffering.

From the standpoint of back pain injury in the Military, it’s no different that any other workplace injury. When it comes to that, the numbers are revealing as well.

And I have mentioned some options as an alternative.

When offered, people often say that prevention costs too much. It costs individuals, companies and our entire country NOT to invest in prevention, I would say. And prevention is possible, predictable and measurable.

I often think that we are like the adult circus elephants tethered to a small stake with an even smaller chain. Here, especially page 5, is how that works…

“Services of Doctors of Chiropractic result in improved health, satisfaction, safety and reduced per capita costs.”

That’s a quote from Oregon Governor, Dr. John Kitzhaber, M.D., in his Proclamation naming October “Oregon Chiropractic Health and Wellness Month”.


“Bought” the documentary

It’s out, here is the trailer info.

You can get the movie here.

If you saw “Doctored” then you’ll want to see “Bought”.

Makes me think of Permaculture. But then maybe it isn’t “permanent”.

How Much Protein Do You Need To Build Muscle?

Here the assumption is that you are training to increase lean body mass (build muscle); and that you are doing that properly, but… all else being equal, the Juice Lady has some information on protein sources and their relative contribution to a daily protein consumption goal.

She just started with a personal trainer (all the rage these days you know:-). Here are her thoughts.

As usual there are many issues that go into a decision about where, when, why and how to get your protein. We often recommend JuicePlus+ Complete because it’s plant-based (no dairy thank you, so no whey isolates, no “Isotean”, etc.), packed with all kinds of synergistic goodies (meaning it will digest and assimilate well), and provides 13 grams of protein per serving. (It’s also gluten free, vegetarian, and Kosher.)

And while many people are now using JuicePLus+ Complete in a detox, rejuvenation, and weight loss strategy (TRANSFORM 30), it will just as easily add weight (muscle) when you add the shakes to your diet without skipping the meals. These shakes can be added before and/or after the workouts or as part of regular meals.

There is a long list of negative consequences to the typical dairy-based and meat-based approaches to increasing your protein intake. Skip all of that and get something that will do the job and make you healthier as a consequence. Here we could talk about all the workout recovery issues, the energy demands on the body, and others but that’s a subject for another Post.
