"Zoom another video. Conferencing tools are here to stay as businesses press pause on the return back to offices. It also means students may continue learning remotely so zoom is introducing a new feature to help keep kids be less distracted. Yeah that's right. zoom revealed. A new mode called focus and it's aimed specifically for teaching environments such as obviously being in class During the class the way it works is if when it's run through zoom and you're using this focus mode. Teachers will be able to see every student in class but students will only see the teacher. So when a student's view you'll have the usual zoom view but instead of seeing all those faces different tiles students will only see the names of other classmates in available windows but they won't hear their peers talking if there's any and they won't see any non verbal feedback or hear them when they're on muted basically just looks like it's the student and the teacher in the zoom at all times It also works to for teachers when they want to enable screen sharing so say an instructor is trying to do some kind of presentation and kids take turns presenting stuff in class. They can basically screen share with that individual child and then everybody else can focus on that. And there's not a zillion other pop ups that are there that are distracting And we've seen zoom take several steps over the last few months to shore up its platform as americans have grown more reliant on using videoconferencing like zoom a to get through working to get through school We just saw last month. Zim zum rolled out apps so basically it just merges popular productivity and entertainment services like games directly into the zoom window and they also launched an events tool to host hybrid meetings or conferences directly within zoom. So we're seeing a lot of different changes with the platform over these last couple months. Sounds pretty interesting. i mean. unfortunately we're going to be doing zoom for the foreseeable future. It sounds like in some fashion. You know whether it's school are worker. What are happy hours. Or whatever so Sounds cool

How to get the most out of your Apple Watch
"Hey there listeners. Mike schneider and i'm brett molina and welcome back to talking tech so bread. I'm driving and apple. Watch for some upcoming coverage we've got coming and i found a very helpful story right here on tech that usa today dot com it trittin buyer pal and colleague mark saltzman about some cool tips and tricks with the apple watch. Yeah it's definitely a good story for myself personally. It's very timely. Because a couple of months ago. I bought an apple watch myself. I had held out from buying one for the longest time and then decided with the price going down and they also introduced the model which ended up picking up. It hit that sweet spot of a good price and a lot of really good features. So i figured alright. I'm diving in so i've dive in. I'm still learning about it. And i've learned quite a bit from marks column one of the recommendations that i've added into my bag of tricks is the ability to adjust the onscreen tech size. Which as you get older a very convenient thing to have so the way you do it is when you're on the apple. Watch home screen. You go to settings and then you scroll down to where it says display in brightness once you get there has an for tech size then what you do is just tap the larger or smaller icon until you get a font size that you like so obviously can use it to decrease it increase the brightness of of the screen as well. Yeah i was test driving to before we started recording i increase. The text is a bit and you can also bold it and that really helped me the other ways. It's helped me is just just like your case. It's a good read for someone who maybe just got an apple watch as a holiday gift. It helps you. Learn the parts of the watch. What they're called. I would not have thought the button on the side is called digital crown. So that helped me because when you're getting advice and suggestions and control things to do with the watch you gotta know what that is or you're to be lost right away one tip. I bet i'll use a lot as a functions to help you find your iphone. You can use your watch. It'll ping your phone so kind like some of those remote controls have with. I think roku has a remote control thing that that you can ping it got your watch. You can't find your phone so you swipe up from the bottom of your main clock to open control center and here you'll see a ping icon. Which looks like an iphone ringing. Just tap this and it prompts.

So he also points out to other quick ways that you mute the apple watch which will definitely be handy if you're in a in a zoo meeting or you're doing something where you need to kind of keep the apple watch quiet Basically what you can do is swipe up from the bottom. Just like you do on an iphone to open up the control center where you have different functions that you can get to really quickly like a calculator things like that in this case if you open up the control center on the apple watch you'll tap an icon. That looks like a bell. And when you tap that you'll see it turn red with a slash across the middle. That means that it's now in silent mode so you'll still receive haptic notifications like the vibrations. That will you'll feel on your wrist as opposed to beeps that. Come off the watch but it's just a way to kind of silence the phone if you need to. There's also this really cool covered.

"We've published on this a little bit. This idea that. All back, pain patients can fit into one bucket is a gross oversimplification and I think what we've learned over the years. Now, when is a chiropractic school back? Pain was well, the bones out of place you put back in place, take the pressure off the nerve you're gonNa be fine is really mechanical simplistic model as you start going through the years you start realizing that. X Ray Marai images don't correlate with back pain which is kind of weird right? You think boy that's a really bad herniated discussing the. Marai. Only find out to patients like, yeah you know it's not really that bad. Other people have small distributions and they have terrible pain. So we're thinking. While was sad about this years go by understanding a lot about the psychology of back pain right that some people are kind of STOIC and they can put up with the pain now the people are. I've heard the term. Fragile East does. Which is interesting term some people just more sensitive to pain. So the psychology the imaging, and then we start realizing social factors kind of work that you have the nutrition that you have and it starts getting really really interesting genetics were starting to find out now unfortunately has to do with some kinds of back pain. So I'm very excited. We're we actually University of Pittsburgh. Just received a huge grant twenty, five, million dollar grant from H. The biggest I've been involved with and I am evolved this study and it's to pheno type chronic back pain. So, this is going to be. Probably going throughout we have a five year grant. I've a feeling. It's going to be twenty year study, and in this study we're going to take. A thousand patients in Pittsburgh of chronic back pain. Get blood samples on them to look for inflammatory biomarkers. We're GONNA, do sly swabs and do genetic testing looking for genetic polymorphisms. We're going to be doing a series of physical exam procedures to see what movements and physical movement characteristics related different types of back pain amateur do a whole bunch of psychological social questionnaires in looking at all those aspects. So it's a huge undertaking and. This is where I think the future back pain is it's a multidimensional problem that requires a lot of different inputs from different healthcare professionals. So this idea that silos needs to be worried about what they're doing. I don't think they need to be. We've been talking with Dr Mike. Schneider think he's given an interesting background about how he got where he is today were overlooking the river. So He's obviously done well with an office with windows but more importantly I think he really.

"So we're talking to Dr Mike Schneider I'm curious just briefly for maybe physical therapists are listening to this and we know depending on the generation some people don't like to read I took the opportunity last night to read up read up on the web page about the program but I'm curious just kind of briefly somebody's listening to this and say boy, that's a really interesting idea I'd like to learn more about it. What exactly is the program as far as how long does it take in just in broad terms? How does it differ from somebody just basically going to a couple of continuing education classes over a couple of weekends. Well or program First of all to come into our program, we have some prerequisites because we're looking for people who want to jump to the next level. This is not for beginners, right this is the advanced class if you're taking dance classes, for example, or music lessons were the advanced class, not the beginners class. So we want people coming in who have good manual therapy skills that have a good understanding of rehabilitative exercises and movement control and. For example, a lot of chiropractors don't know much much about exercise. We said, well, think they'll take those classes I then come back. Some physical therapists had a lot of manual therapy training, go take those classes I then come back to us because then what we do is provide a four unit program and each of our units consists of a lot of online material, as well as an associated three day weekend course and when I say a lot of online is probably about. A five or six to one ratio. The number of hours online heavily outweighs what we do in the weekend, and so our first unit is on the basic principles of delivering primary spine care and doing a good history and examination. Our second unit is focused purely on the lumbar spine low back our third units focus exclusively on the cervical spine, her neck. And our forth unit is all about integrative care case scenarios and managing back pain. Neck pain by the way, I know one of the things no matter what your certification is you often see see user required.

"One of our people can see great I don't care who they are. I don't care what their degrees I'm here for back pain and you've got somebody's qualified cmih. I'm happy to see them whatever their degrees. I know the physical therapy profession has a number of specialty certifications and I'm curious if you see with this melding of healthcare professions or. Hopefully, not putting my foot, my mouth, the blurring wherever the patient centered care where you just WanNa see somebody who's going to help you better. Help you better. You see the day where maybe in addition to primary spine care practitioners, there's going to be maybe shoulder specialists that blurs the line knee specialist specialists or do you think it's more low back? Is the big emphasis because so people have back problems or back injuries. Yes a really good question I think that. The. I don't know is really my answer. I think at some point, there's too much subsidization I think that there's different levels of care the primary care with you come in with shoulder pain for example, fifty percent of shoulder pains actually come from the neck. People. Come in what they think is hip pain more than fifty percents that's coming from the low back. So SP- spine problems are by far and away the most common musculoskeletal disorder but and I didn't want to get into this. But most of our primary spine practitioners, the physical therapist coverage will come in there are good any kind of musculoskeletal diagnosis and triage. So no prediction would be we're not gonNA. Have you know primary shoulder practitioners and primary knee bacterium's we're gonNA, primary musculoskeletal practitioners spine being the predominant but maybe it's spine and musculoskeletal. And again, that analogy with internal medicine works really well. So. Here's here's my. Delusion of grandeur that someday we're GonNa Primary Care Clinics, and that primary care clinics got door a door be. I have a pain in my body. Then where's your pain? I know my chest let me examine you that chess seems to be coming from your back go to a the musculoskeletal door. And then somebody will take care of you over there. Oh, that paying your chest that seems to be coming from your lungs go to the door be and so endure be we've got physician's assistants, nurse practitioners the Primary Care Doc endure a we've got physical therapists, chiropractors, athletic trainers I don't know who, but there's people that do the triage. MUSCO SKELETAL END That's we need an primary care is going to this team based model. And then that's GonNa handle eighty, eighty, five percent of the cases. And there will be a minority that needs to go onto specialty care but the people behind each of those doors can then direct people to the right path..

"I liked this organizations that you can go there and you can see chiropractors you can see physical therapist you can see athletic trainers, strength coaches, personal trainers, and there really isn't a whole lot of silo knowledge in the particular area of resistance training because you have all of these professions when you started this program with chiropractors and physical therapists was there blowback from any chiropractors physical therapists of course, not naming names saying, wait a second I don't WanNa work with. A chiropractor or I don't WanNa work with a physical therapist or why are they here? What would be your guests? Hell. Yes. Yes. Of course I mean, it'd be silly for me to say Yo know everything is you know peachy and we don't have any any blowback sure. There was a there was a lot of dissent from both sides. You know they're chiropractors saying you're selling out the profession to physical therapy and physical therapy you're selling out the profession chiropractors. So we just ignore that noise and move forward. If you don't in fact, that's great. If you feel that way then committees program, we don't want you I know just having had low back problems and knowing people who have you really don't care who's treating you. If they're good, you don't care if they're a chiropractor, you don't care if they're a physical. Therapist, don't care if they're a medical doctor if they help you and you get better, that's what matters. I agree and that's what patient centered cares about. I mean I don't have any tolerance for this blowback because we're trying to help people get better with back pain the number one cause of disability in the world there a lot of people that need our help and I i. think it's. It's sad when professionals fighting with each other over overturf. I've. Nice. Little quota my wall here about we talk about turf wars. Turf is territory that a gang or tribe claims its own. Really, we tribalism here with healthcare professionals over what's going to help patient I again, I have no tolerance for that. One interesting analogy here is thinking what's happened over the past maybe ten or twenty years with respect to nurse Practitioners and physician's assistance in the primary care setting. You know when I grew up, you saw the doctor there was no other person with see. Then as time went by, you went to a primary care clinic and they said Hey Mike, we got the physician. Dr Jones is too busy today. Could you see his physician assistant? Well, okay. I'll give it a try. And now what proclaims do you go to the doesn't have a medically trained physician an osteopathic physician, a nurse Practitioner, a physician's assistant do you really care? If you go in there with an Acre of pain and one of them can see you and they're all qualified. Yes sure. Some of them were qualified than others but they're all delivering primary care medicine. You don't care. I think we're going to predict I predict one day it'll be like that with. Primary Care Clinics offering musculoskeletal care. They'll be multiple practitioners they're including physical therapists, chiropractors my back hurts..

"We Primary Care Physicians are trained in internal medicine right back. Pain is not one of their priorities and we actually have a quote from from one of our physicians to said that. If a patient sees me I'm more worried about their diabetes or hypertension their thyroid problem their kidney problem if they have back pain, that's the least of my worries. And so we're finding the primary care physicians are very much in favor of delegating back pain or neck pain over to physical therapists and chiropractors because they just tend to be the practitioners have the most knowledge in those fields has there been any interest from osteopath or physical medicine physicians as far as this program goes. Yes. We have a lot of actually have a lot of interest from physical medicine and Rehab, physicians and Osteopathic Physicians. But again. To manage patients at the primary care level meaning that you're the first contact provider. Eighty, percent of patients that have low back pain for example, you have an acute onset of back pain eighty, eighty, five percent maybe more of those patients they don't need specialty care, and so a physical medicine Rehab doc is really more of a specialist so for them to see the. Eighty five percent of people who don't need specialty care as kind of below their pay grade. So they're interested in this model and I think that in some sense, we see the. Physical therapists and chiropractors have been through our primary spine practitioner training can almost act as the nurse practitioner if you will to the physical medicine and Rehab physician or the Catholic physician. Even potentially to a primary care physician. And I know Pennsylvania has direct asked access for physical therapist other states and you may not know this that don't have direct access where the physical therapists may not be able to be the primary care person for a spine injury. Well. Yes. I I do know a lot about this the vast majority of states. Have, direct access to physical therapy with that means for your audience, not familiar with it is. People think that you need to have a prescription from a medical doctor to get physical therapy services. That's not true in Pennsylvania and the majority of states, the United States. But here's the RUB. Very few Americans know that there's been surveys done nationally we've asked people do you know that you can see a chiropractor without prescription? No. And we know that utilization rates are extremely low. They're about seven percent so when I say that. Of patients who have an acute episode of back pain when they're asked who? Who was the first provider you saw? Little over fifty percents. Esau..

"Let me go somewhere where I can be seen right away, and by the way I've heard you know this carpeting might work. I'll try that chiropractors get people in very quickly as a rule and I think that's one of the things that's made the profession flourish as well as getting quick results with patients and I'm curious why is it? The chiropractors are able to get patients in so quickly? Well, well, another interesting fact you know that in most of the healthcare professions now let's talk about physical therapists for example, the vast majority well over eighty percent physical therapists are employed by clinic. Seventy five percent of carbon in Solo practice, right? They run their own practice they're by themselves, the not part of a big system, and so they're more flexible in what they can do when they cut to run their own show and they're not salaried employees of a big company. So it creates a different kind of model delivering the care. Why or how is the decision to come up with this primary spine care practitioner because I know from what you said a few minutes ago on from what I've read something both chiropractors and physical therapists in and even though the lines are blurred, we always know that there are egos involved and people who are worried about other professions stepping on their toes, not just in Chiropractic and not just in physical therapy just across the medical, the movement field. Was a I'll be quite honest about a very bold move that we're taking here. We like to say that we're profession agnostic. How's that? For Term? You. Hear a lot about patient centered care. This is patient centered care. This program is WANNA improve spine care we don't care. What degree the person has We need to improve spying here in the United States. It's terrible people back pain get ping pong around. From practitioner practitioner with nobody kind of in charge of their case. It's almost like you come to a path in the woods and you're lost and. You're trying to get out of the woods and you have maybe a pass to choose from with no guide and you choose pathway and wander around guess what you're right back where you started and you choose another paths wander around and you're right back where you started and so we figured that just like in primary care medicine. If you have a pain in your body, you're not sure what is the primary care provider can guide you if they can't do it themselves, they can guide you to what you need. We need the same kind of thing for patients back nickname. I'm always curious when people develop new programs or programs that are different I. think it's very clear just from my knowledge why chiropractors are in the program wife? Physical. Therapists are in the program. Are Physicians allowed in the program to do you have some primary care physicians who say this might be something that can be a valuable part of my practice or is that something that for variety of reasons they aren't included Was His interesting? No, we're not. We don't limit the primary spine practitioner certificate to only physical therapists and chiropractors. It's open to any licensed healthcare professional but. There's not a lot of interest in primary care medicine and we've approached the primary care medicine physicians here at ups. Invariably they just they don't have the time or interest for it..

My thought of Chiropractors were they were somebody that you went to a couple of times a week for basically I'm saying this an air quotes back cracks and I've learned over the past seven or eight years that there's really. . Two directions, the , chiropractors go there's those that do that. . They want to get people in maybe on a subscription basis where they come in multiple times a week, , and then there's others that I've been fortunate to meet where they work in a manner that's very similar to the way physiotherapists work in other countries or physical therapists work. . Which Direction when you started out in your career path where you or was it entirely different when you started out as far as the directions, , the chiropractors tended to go. . Well I'm not embarrassed to tell you to my agent I've been practice I graduated from chiropractic school in Nineteen Eighty two. . So many many years ago well over thirty years ago. . And at that time, , chiropractic. . Had Not quite evolved to where it is now <hes> but over the years since that time we started seeing, , I think the boundaries between physical therapy and carpet professions getting blurred and what I mean by that it's probably in the late ninety s crate Lebron Sin <hes> The chiropractor from Los. . Angeles started bringing his rehabilitation model <hes> to car practic. . So prior to that most banks just doing the manual. . As you call back cracking techniques and then start blending rehabilitation techniques at the same time the physical therapy sessions going the other direction where they mainly just prescribing exercise not putting your hands on people as much and there was an interest in the PT profession and the eighties and nineties start introducing more manual techniques. .
