PurposeContinued opioid use after total knee and hip arthroplasty (TKA/THA) is well-documented and associated with both surgical and patient-reported factors. Research examining the combined effects of a multitude of factors on continued, and even chronic, opioid use in a systematic algorithmic manner is lacking. This study prospectively evaluated...

Introduction: Complementary and integrative therapies such as physical therapy (PT) and occupational therapy (OT) have been shown to improve functional outcomes and reduce opioid use. Due to the COVID-19 (or SARS-CoV-2 [severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2]) pandemic, these therapies are switching to telehealth and telemedicine practices...
Article
Dear Editor, One in five US adults experiences chronic pain [1]. Complementary and integrative pain management (CIPM) therapies, such as acupuncture, chiropractic care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and massage therapy, are recommended by the US Inter-Agency Task Force to both improve pain management and reduce the opioid crisis [2]. In 2...

Arsenic is a public health concern because of its widespread distribution and high toxicity, even when doses are small. Low birth weight (LBW) occurrence, birth weights less than 2500 g, may be associated with prenatal exposure of arsenic from environmental factors and consuming contaminated drinking water and food. The objective of this study was...

Code
This repository contains R codes that can be used to perform generalized linear models (GLM) and data visualization on low birth weight data and other contributing factors. In these codes, you will be able to learn code that can aggregate data categories; filter and select data from the dataframe; run GLM models; and create table and plots for your...
