group getting their fantasy football draftFor anyone who is an avid sports fan, this is a great time of year. The baseball pennant races are full-bore, the college football season has kicked off and the 94th season of the National Football League (NFL) begins on Thursday night, September 5, 2013. Six months later, on February 2, 2014, the NFL season will end with the crowning of a champion team of Super Bowl XLVIII.

Between now and February, a curious addiction will befall many otherwise sane men and women who enjoy following professional football. They will be consumed with the stats of players who most likely don’t even play for their favorite teams. They will spend many hours studying obscure facts such as how well a given running back performs on artificial turf versus real grass. They will struggle to juggle all-star lineups to best take advantage of a scoring system that approaches the complexity of the U.S. Tax Code.

Unlike the treatment delivered by the specialists at Texas Back Institute to patients with back pain, herniated discs or other back problems, there is really no cure for this football sickness. These lost souls are smitten by the phenomenon of playing fantasy football!

Consuming Football Facts

It may not surprise you to learn fantasy football is a very big business. It is estimated by the Fantasy Sports Trade Association that 32 million people, aged twelve and older in the U.S. and Canada, play fantasy sports. The trade group notes that fantasy football players make up 90% of the fantasy sports “industry.” This participation has grown by over 60% the last four years with 19% of males in the U.S. playing fantasy sports.

Because of this high level of participation many consumer products companies such as Sprint, Yahoo, ESPN, Fox and others have invested millions of dollars in fantasy football services and promotions. The two groups who usually disagree about almost everything associated with professional football – NFL properties (composed of the team owners) and NFL Players (the players’ union) – have both created products and services that encourage fans to play fantasy football.

The Texas Back Institute Dream Team 

Most of the fun of playing fantasy football involves choosing a “dream team” from a group of outstanding players. There are no bad football players in the NFL. They’re all good. Therefore, getting to choose the best of the best for one’s own team can be great fun.

In a similar fashion, the spine specialists at Texas Back Institute are the best in their class and as such, there are only great choices. In celebration of the hundreds of thousands of fantasy drafts in full-swing at this moment, we thought we’d introduce you to our dream team.

History of the Team:

Texas Back Institute was formed in 1977 by Stephen Hochschuler, M.D., Ralph Rashbaum, M.D. and Richard Guyer, M.D. The organization is internationally recognized for excellence for spine injuries. In football terms, this team plays offense and defense equally well and the patients are the big winners.

The Texas Back Institute Fantasy Team:

As with NFL teams, the Texas Back Institute team is composed of the best of the best of spine surgery, research and therapy. The game plan for our team has been consistent for more than 35 years. Each patient injury or condition is unique and is best treated with the most minimally invasive approach.

Choosing Your Team

There are literally hundreds of ways to set up your league and arrange for a draft of NFL players. The best advice for those new to this pastime is to understand how the players’ performance will be scored each week. This will help determine the number of running backs, wide receivers, tight ends to choose. For example, in some leagues, the yardage gained by running backs is weighted higher than the passing yardage of quarterbacks.

One should also be aware of the “bye” weeks each team has (when they are not playing) because this will mean a player on the team with the bye, will not play that week and should not be in the lineup.  Here’s a good primer  on choosing your fantasy team.

Fortunately, choosing a spine specialist is much easier than choosing a fantasy football team! With more than 35 years of excellence in spine treatments, management of many FDA trials and a foundation of minimally invasive treatment, the dream team of physicians at Texas Back Institute is championship caliber.

DUCK-DYNASTY-facebookYou might say the executives of the A&E cable network were pleased with the premiere of the 2013 season of Duck Dynasty. Actually, it would be more accurate to say they were happy, happy, happy – to borrow a phrase from the patriarch of the Robertson clan!  As USA Today noted, “Wednesday’s episode, which focused on a surprise wedding-vow renewal ceremony for Phil and Kay Robertson, attracted 11.8 million viewers and 6.3 million advertiser-coveted young adults (18-to-49).” This was no fluke. This episode was up 37% in viewers and 26% in young adults vs. last season’s premiere, which also set records.

So, what gives here? Why would almost 12-million viewers tune in to a reality show based on the often ridiculous exploits of a group of self-avowed, redneck duck hunters?

Dr. Ralph F. Rashbaum, M.DWe asked Texas Back Institute surgeon and avid outdoor sportsman Dr. Ralph Rashbaum that question and his response is consistent with media observers around the world, “It’s simple, really. This show is about family values. All of the hunting, fishing, duck calls and related hijinks are just supporting storylines to this.”

Whether it was intentional or not, Duck Dynasty and the Southern charm of the extended Robertson family has had a positive influence on a large number of people –  both city slickers and country bumpkins – who have developed an interest in hunting and fishing. While the fishing rod, shotgun and camouflage apparel manufacturers are (dare we say it) happy, happy, happy, this will inevitably lead to more people in the fields when the fall hunting season kicks off in September.

Unfortunately, some of these hunters will show up in Dr. Rashbaum’s examining room shortly thereafter. Before getting some advice from him about avoiding back injuries while swinging that shotgun, let’s take a moment to introduce Duck Dynasty to precious few who have not made the acquaintance of the Robertson family of West Monroe, Louisiana.

Meet the Folks who Work for Duck Commander

 

The storylines of the 1950’s situation comedy “I Love Lucy” worked around a one-bedroom apartment in New York City where Lucy and Ricky Ricardo managed to get into hysterical predicaments with the help of their neighbors, Fred and Ethyl Mertz. Similarly, almost every episode of Duck Dynasty incorporates the “Duck Commander” duck call factory. Unlike Lucy and Ricky’s home, this factory actually exists and this very successful company, started by Phil Robertson, has produced highly regarded duck calls for many years.

When Phil retired to hunt ducks, fish for crappie and teach his grandbabies “how to avoid becoming yuppies,” his son Willie took over as CEO of Duck Commander. The other Robertson son, Jase, is an employee of the company and, as the most of the funny premises of the show result from Jase refusing to recognize the authority of his older brother, Willie. He is usually joined in this harassment of his brother by their Uncle Si, Phil’s brother, a Vietnam vet, perpetual ice-tea drinker and full time philosopher, and the rest of the employees at Duck Commander.

Each week, these real-life characters deal with simple issues that are cleverly embellished to become a comedic crisis. In the end, everything gets worked out and the last scene of every episode has the entire family around the dinner table with Phil saying grace.

Duck Dynasty: A Boon for Outdoor Sports

The fun these folks on Duck Dynasty are having is resonating with men and women who have decided to take up the sports of hunting and fishing. Several outdoor sports trade publications have noted that the show has done more for increasing the popularity of these ancient pursuits than anything in the past century.

It’s estimated by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) that more than 20.6 million people in the U.S. hunt each year and this number will likely increase with the popularity of this show and others like it. Two years ago, the NSSF noted that more than 8,000 U.S. hunters annually were injured while enjoying their time in the woods and as more novice hunters get out in the field, this number will likely increase.

As someone who is both an avid outdoor sportsman and highly-regarded spine surgeon, Dr. Ralph Rashbaum is in a unique position to offer some guidance to both novice and seasoned hunters and anglers. “Stamina and flexibility are the two most important factors in avoiding back strains or injuries, but common sense and proper safety precautions are even more important,” he said.

Hochschuler and Rashbaum 03Dr. Rashbaum continued, “I love to bow hunt and many times this is done from a tree stand to avoid the superior sense of smell enjoyed by deer. Climbing up to the stand can cause back strains if the muscles are not properly conditioned. Falling from a tree stand can seriously injure or facture the vertebrae in the spine. This type of accident is very common and it can be avoided with proper precautions.”

Dove season begins in most states in September and many hunters will be donning the camo and swinging their 12 and 20-guage shotguns for hours. What does Dr. Rashbaum suggest for these hunters to avoid back strains and injuries?

“I’ve been on a 4-day dove hunt in South America, where my son-in-law and I shot more than 2,300 rounds of 12 and 20-gauge shells! Needless to say, we were tired at the end of the day (however, not as tired as the retrievers who brought back the birds!), but because we had conditioned our shoulders, neck and arms and had spent time stretching these muscles before the hunt, we were able to have an amazing experience and very little back pain.”

Fishing is also popular with the Duck Dynasty clan and millions of other outdoor sports enthusiasts. What does Dr. Rashbaum recommend to avoid back strain from a day of casting? “It really depends on the type of fishing you are thinking about. I love to deep-sea fish and also enjoy fly fishing in fresh water. These are two very different experiences and require different conditioning.”

“If you think you might fighting a marlin for two hours on the open sea, you should definitely get to the gym a few weeks before the trip and work on building strength in your back, shoulder and arm muscles. This can be done with weight training as well as such exercises as rowing and pull-downs. On the other hand, the most dangerous part of fly fishing is not from casting but rather from walking on slippery rocks to get near the fish. Having appropriate equipment – waders with boots that don’t slide and using a walking stick – will help with this.”

Life Lessons of Duck Dynasty

It’s interesting that the situations and values portrayed on Duck Dynasty seem to be as relevant to an urban audience as it is to that which is rural. While he lives and practices in the highly-urbanized area, Dr. Rashbaum is a big fan of the show. “The people on Duck Dynasty are the salt of the earth and represent the best of family values. Plus, they’re very funny!”

It appears that life lessons of Phil, his family and friends on Duck Dynasty go beyond frog catching and duck calling. As Uncle Si would say: “That’s a fact, Jack.”

Kentucky derby

Each year, on the first Saturday in May, horse lovers and sports fans turn their rapt attention to Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky for the “fastest two minutes in sports.” Since its beginning in 1875, The Kentucky Derby has run consecutively each year and has become the premier event in thoroughbred horse racing.

Because of this pomp, pageantry and publicity associated with this race, many amateur riders become interested in equestrian sports and some of these will experience injuries from their new sport – especially in the area of the neck and back. This is where the advice of spine specialists at Texas Back Institute such as Dr. Ralph Rashbaum can come in handy. However, before getting some back health tips for equestrians, let’s take a two-minute look at the Run for the Roses.

A New Method for Qualifying This Year

The Kentucky Derby is a 1 and a quarter mile (2 km) race for 3-year old, thoroughbred horses and is the first race of horse racing’s championship series – The Triple Crown. Sports pundits call the race “The Run for the Roses” because the winning horse is draped with a blanket of stunning spring roses when it is in the winner’s circle after the race.

As every horse racing enthusiasts knows, there are hundreds of thoroughbred horses racing at tracks around the world each week. With this many horses, it’s interesting to note how the top 20 horses are chosen to line up at the gate in Louisville on Derby day. The eventual winner of the Kentucky Derby will have gotten there after competing in races around the country to qualify.

As the website of the Kentucky Derby notes, “This year marks the debut of a new way to determine which horses will join this select and storied field: The Road to the Kentucky Derby is a points-based system that replaces the previous selection method (graded stakes earnings) with a series of key races offering escalating points stakes during the course of the Derby year.

The Road to the Kentucky Derby is a long one, starting with the Prep Season races the previous September and building to a crescendo with the Championship Series in the weeks before the Kentucky Derby. Each race awards the top four finishers points that are tallied across all the races to determine the ranking of horses competing to make it into the Derby.”

Questions, Rumors and Facts about the 2013 Derby

As with all high-profile sporting events – the NFL’s Super Bowl, MLB’s World Series, and others – even the most minute facts, trends and rumors about the participants (in this case, the horses) entered in the Kentucky Derby are thoroughly scrutinized by experts and casual fans alike. This year’s Derby has a few questions that add to the drama of the race.

  • Highly successful trainer Todd Pelcher has 5 horses in this year’s race and he is teaming up with hall of fame jockey Calvin Borel on one of the favorites in this year’s race – Revolutionary. In 2010, the team of Pelcher and Borel won the Derby with Super Saver. Can they repeat this year?
  • One of the prominent prep races, The Bluegrass Stakes, was run on synthetic surface and since Churchill Downs is good, old fashion dirt, handicappers are trying to determine whether the winners of the race on synthetic surface will translate to the dirt track at the Derby.
  • Well-known and liked jockey, Gary Stevens, is returning to the sport at age 50. Stevens has been an actor and news anchor since retiring from racing a few years ago and will be riding one of the contenders – Oxbow – in this year’s race. Can someone who is old enough to be the father of most of the other jockeys win the race?
  • Highly respected trainer D. Wayne Lukus who is 77 years old and has been enormously successful at the Kentucky Derby will have two thoroughbreds in the race – Oxbox and Will Take Charge. Anytime Lukus has horses in the race, handicappers take notice because of his history.
  • The colt, Lines of Battle, is the only European entry in this year’s race and has won races going longer distances than the other horses in the race. Some feel that Lines of Battle is an excellent choice for a long shot.

Enjoy the Ride and Save Your Back

Just as NCAA’s Final Four tournament has the effect of getting many people out, shooting hoops, the Kentucky Derby energizes those who love horses. Since participating in equestrian sports can result in accidents and even long-term damage to the back, some caution and proper techniques should be considered before saddling up. To help us with this we’ve asked Texas Back Institute spine surgeon Dr. Ralph Rashbaum to give us some insights on back safety when involved in horseback riding.

In addition to diagnosing and treating patients with chronic back pain, herniated discs, back injuries and sacroiliac joint dysruption, Dr. Rashbaum has additional knowledge that most back specialists don’t have. He spent 16 years breeding Arabian horses and his wife and daughter have been involved in the sport of Hunter/Jumper equestrian competitions. With the Kentucky Derby approaching the final turn, we asked Dr. Rashbaum for some tips on back safety and riding.

RashbaumPatientWhat is the most serious health problem casual riders and competitors in equestrian sports should be concerned with? 

The biggest danger to the recreational rider is falling off the horse and injuring his/her spine, long bones (such as legs and arms) and pelvis. After a period of time, the ligaments of the rider get tired or become sore and the muscles become more lax. When this happens, a rider – especially one who does not ride on a regular basis – can be jostled off the horse and take a tumble. This can cause fractures in the vertebra and other injuries we would need to treat.

Are there any dangers to the neck and spine of riders who ride on a regular basis and if so, how can they avoid this? 

Riders who spend a lot of time pursuing this sport can experience a pinpoint injury or tenderness in the area where the sacroiliac joint and buttocks meet. This is not a spine injury but is caused by the repetitive concussion of the buttocks on the saddle when the horse is walking or jogging. This is not as big a problem when the horse is galloping.  Over time, this can result in a sharp pain. The best way to avoid this injury is to learn the proper posture and techniques for cushioning the constant bouncing when riding. This involves using the thighs and leg muscles to cushion the concussive bounces. This is a great argument for young riders to get professional instruction on riding techniques.

What are some physical signs a horse rider should come see a physician at Texas Back Institute? 

Anytime there is a burning pain, particularly if this runs down the leg and lower extremities, these suggest some problems and the rider should come see us. This is sometimes called “sciatica” and can be treated in several ways.

What is your opinion about the athleticism of the professional jockeys that will be riding in the Kentucky Derby Saturday?  

They are amazing athletes! Imagine getting into the posture they must get into in order ride – hips flexed, legs underneath, tremendous extension of the torso and neck all while keep their head up – for the length of time of a race. The jockeys who compete at this level have rigorous stretching exercises and are much more flexible than other athletes.

While their numbers are dwindling, there are still many men and women who raise cattle on large ranches. These folks spend a lot of time on horseback and this is not a sport but rather a job. What are the problems they should be aware of? 

Cowboys, whether they are working on a cattle ranch or competing in rodeos, have the same potential for concussive damage as a hunter/jumper contestant. Most learn, at an early age, how to reduce the concussive blows by using leg muscles to reduce this. However, rodeo contestants – particularly those who are involved in bulldogging where the cowboy ropes the calf, jumps off the horse, lifts the calf and then ties him – have a high risk of spine damage and disc herniation and we’ve seen a few in our examination rooms.

 

Protecting your neck and spine from wear and tear damage as well as injuries is an important part of enjoying equestrian sports. Plus, now that you have the scoop on the horses in this year’s Kentucky Derby, you’re ready for the race. All you need is a mint julep and you’re good to go!    

Denys Kendall….Back to Feeling Like a Person!

Denys Kendall never thought he would need spine surgery.  He was jumping out of airplanes, serving his country in Iraq and living the life of a true adrenaline junkie.  Denys served in the Army for 4 years, starting off in Special Forces and eventually moving into the First Cavalry at Fort Hood in Killeen, TX. 

Unfortunately for Denys, while receiving a series of vaccines to protect him from contracting anthrax, he developed a severe staph infection. The infection settled in his hip eventually eating away at the sacroiliac joint and the lower area of his lumbar spine. During the removal of an abscess, by surgeons outside of Texas Back Institute (TBI), one of his nerves was severed causing pain and weakness in his leg.

Denys’s pain got to a point where he knew he needed to seek attention from an expert and he began seeing Dr. James Cable, a pain management specialist at the Texas Back Institute to help determine what treatment options were available for his specific condition.  After performing a physical evaluation and reviewing Mr. Kendall’s case Dr. Cable referred him to his colleague Dr. Ralph Rashbaum, co-founder and orthopedic spine surgeon at the Texas Back Institute specialized in chronic pain management and interventional pain management.

Dr. Rashbaum and Denys discussed the possible treatment options and determined a spinal cord stimulator was going to give him the best possible results.  Luckily for Denys, the FDA had just approved the use of a new stimulator device that automatically adjusts to movements in his posture, making it virtually effortless to use.

Dr. Rashbaum recalls, “Denys came to Texas Back Institute with unrelenting pain radiating down his leg. He was the perfect candidate for the RestoreSensor because he is a very active gentleman and the sensor works well for people with active lifestyles.”

The decision to undergo the spinal cord stimulator implant was not an easy one for Denys, however, after doing his own research and his trust in Dr. Rashbaum Denys moved forward with the procedure.  “Dr. Rashbaum was very straightforward with me, and I love that,” said Denys. “He gave me realistic expectations but he was very confident this was going to be a life changer. Since my procedure the device has been doing its job like a champ.”

When asked what he most looks forward to doing now that his back pain is under control Denys states, “to me, it’s not so much about what activity, it’s about getting a life back! I can be a person again and that for me is invaluable. Dr. Rashbaum is a savior! He saved me.”
