UCSF/SFSU decisions?

Anyone heard from UCSF/SFSU? I know they’ve recently geared towards holistic admissions, so I’m hoping for the best of luck!

People who experience debilitating back pain come to their doctors with one pressing question: Do I need back surgery? Often, they are surprised to hear me, a neurosurgeon, answer, “No.” In many cases, physical therapy, pain management, weight loss management, and physiatry can help people to delay – and in some cases avoid – backRead more …Expertise is the backbone of successful spine treatment originally appeared inKevinMD.com.

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTTo identify the association between traditional cardiovascular risk factors, diseases related factors, body composition and adipokines with high cardiovascular risk (HCVR) in psoriatic arthritis and non-psoriatic spondyloarthritis. This was a cross-sectional study involving age and BMI matched adults with psoriatic arthritis (PsA) (n = 56) and non-psoriatic spondyloarthritis (nPsA-SpA) (n = 58). Body composition using whole-body dual energy X-ray absorptiometry, adipokines and disease characteristics along with cardiovascular risk sc...

I am noticing alot of new hybrid dpt programs. I am assuming it is because of the pandemic. I was wondering if this would harm the profession in any sort of way. Will we see more saturation in the future?

Phys Ther. 2022 Jan 3:pzab296. doi: 10.1093/ptj/pzab296. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPhysical therapists have unique education in the comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment and treatment of chronic pain and its mechanisms. Recently, physical therapists have raised awareness regarding the impact of nutrition on promoting health and managing noncommunicable diseases. Robust evidence supports the implementation of nutrition in physical therapist education and practice. Of particular interest for the physical therapist are investigations which use dietary interventions for the treatment of chronic pain. Yet physical therap...

Int J Sports Phys Ther. 2022 Jan 1;17(1):104-110. doi: 10.26603/001c.30023. eCollection 2022.ABSTRACTLifting something off the ground is an essential task and lifting is a documented risk factor for low back pain (LBP). The standard lifting techniques are stoop (lifting with your back), squat (lifting with your legs), and semi-squat (midway between stoop and squat). Most clinicians believe the squat technique is optimal; however, training on squat lifting does not prevent LBP and utilizing greater lumbar flexion (i.e. stoop) when lifting is not a risk factor for LBP. The disconnect between what occurs in clinical practice ...
