America is in the midst of an opioid epidemic. Consider that in 2012 alone, health care providers wrote 259 million prescriptions for opioid pain medication, enough for every American adult to have their own bottle of pills.

Opioids, responsibly dosed, are an appropriate part of medical treatment in some situations. But they carry significant risks, including depression, withdrawal symptoms, overdose, and addiction. The statistics are scary:

As many as 1 in 4 people who receive prescription opioids long-term for noncancer pain struggle with addiction. Every day, more than 1,000 people are treated in emergency departments for misusing prescription opioids;
People who are addicted to prescription opioids are 40 times more likely to become addicted to heroin; and 78 people die every day from an opioid-related overdose.

To address this national health crisis, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued guidelines in March 2016 urging providers to reduce opioid prescribing in favor of safe, nondrug alternatives such as physical therapy for chronic pain conditions, including low back pain, hip and knee osteoarthritis, and fibromyalgia. In August 2016, the Surgeon General sent a letter to every physician in the country asking for their help to solve the problem.

Meanwhile, the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) launched a national public awareness campaign to educate consumers about the risks of opioids and the safe alternative of physical therapy for pain management.

A safe way to manage and treat pain

Physical therapists treat pain and improve function through movement and exercise without the risky side effects of opioids. A physical therapist's individualized, hands-on approach engages the patient, making her or him an active participant in her or his own recovery.

Patients should choose physical therapist treatment instead of opioids when...

The risks of opioids outweigh the rewards. CDC experts say that opioids should not be considered as first-line or routine therapy for chronic pain. Even when opioids are prescribed, the CDC recommends that patients receive "the lowest effective dosage," and opioids "should be combined" with nonopioid therapies, such as physical therapy.

Pain or function problems are related to low back pain, hip or knee osteoarthritis, or fibromyalgia. The CDC cites "high-quality evidence" supporting exercise as part of a physical therapist treatment plan for these chronic pain conditions.

Pain lasts at least 90 days. At this point, pain is considered "chronic," and the risks for continued opioid use increase. The CDC says that "clinicians should consider opioid therapy only if expected benefits for both pain and function are anticipated to outweigh risks to the patient."

APTA's #ChoosePT initiative is raising awareness about the dangers of prescription opioids and the safe, nondrug alternative for pain management provided by physical therapists. Visit MoveForwardPT.com for information to help you decide if physical therapist treatment is right for you.

Hancock briefs

Main Street leader cites 'sure bet'

HANCOCK — Some Hancock officials and citizens saw the video portion of the town's entry for HGTV's "Home Town Takeover" that will air in 2021.

The 5-minute video was shown during Wednesday's town council meeting. It includes scenes from the town, comments from civic and business leaders and some music from the Hancock Middle-Senior High School Band.

The television show will be hosted by the husband-and-wife team of Ben and Erin Napier, who already lead the network’s “Home Town” home-renovation show. According to the HGTV website, the town makeover will include the rehab of individual family homes, as well as the revitalization of public spaces such as parks, local diners or restaurants and outdoor recreation areas.

The new Main Street Hancock group spearheaded the town's entry.

J Loren, president of Main Street Hagerstown, said he was pleased with the results. He thanked those who have been working with the group and cautioned against placing a lot of hope on a TV-driven revitalization.

"What would be a sure bet is betting on us, our community," he said.

Council supports MARC extension

HANCOCK — The Hancock Town Council has added its voice to those who support extending MARC commuter train service.

The idea is to extend the line that now runs from Washington, D.C., to Martinsburg, W.Va., further west into northern Morgan County, W.Va. The proposed stop would be right across the Potomac River from Hancock.

At its meeting Wednesday, the council unanimously adopted a resolution "to demonstrate support for the MARC train extension." The resolution notes that an Appalachian Regional Commission study in 2000 found "positive results" for the extension.

At the meeting, Hancock Mayor Ralph Salvagno said the resolution did not obligate the town to take any action or spend money.

Council members Timothy Boyer, Ronald Lanehart Jr., Leo Murray and Tim Smith voted in favor.

Gillespie takes workforce job in Hancock

HANCOCK — An adult education veteran has been named economic and workforce development program manager in Hancock.

Amy Gillespie, who started work on Feb. 3, recently married and moved from Connecticut to Hagerstown. Town Manager Joe Gilbert introduced her at Wednesday's town council meeting.

"I was a corporate trainer for 25 years," Gillespie said in a brief interview Wednesday.

She said she then ran a nonprofit, the United Labor Agency, for about a decade.

Hancock's new program is funded through a $75,000 grant from the Rural Maryland Council, Gilbert said. Originally the town partnered with Allegany County to apply for a grant to create an incubator for new businesses. Allegany County received some additional funding and proceeded with the idea, Gilbert said. When Hancock was notified a few months ago that it had received the grant, the need had changed.

Gilbert said he received permission to use the money for the new workforce effort, because it is related to economic development.

Gillespie's main responsibility will be working with area colleges and others to offer courses that will strengthen the area’s workforce skills.

The goal is to help residents prepare for higher-paying jobs and attract businesses to the town.

Bill targeting 2018 W.Va. candidate residency controversy halted
By Matthew Umstead mumstead@herald-mail.com
Published Mon Jan 20, 2020 6:30 PM EST
MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Legislative action on a bill that aims to strengthen residency requirements for candidates for state or local elections in West Virginia was halted Monday by leadership in the House of Delegates. House Bill 4096, which was up for final consideration Monday in the 100-seat House, was moved to the inactive house calendar by the powerful House Rules Committee just before the start of the floor session. Del. Larry D. Kump, R-Berkeley/Morgan, the bill’s lead sponsor, said in a telephone interview that the move to take the bill off the special calendar was concerning, but noted that he wasn’t panicked about the bill’s fate. Kump, along with Rules Committee members Del. Jason Barrett, D-Berkeley, and Del. Eric Householder, R-Berkeley, said they weren’t told why action was halted on the bill. Monday was the 13th day of the West Virginia Legislature’s regular 60-day session. Kump said the introduction of HB 4096 stems from a residency controversy involving Tally Reed, Kump’s opponent in the 2018 GOP primary election in the 59th House District. If adopted, HB 4096 would add a new section to state code requiring candidates to reside in the district they seek to represent. The bill includes a definition for “principal residence” to mean the place where the candidate lives, including both physical residency and an intent to remain in the state, district, county or municipality. In 2018, a couple of 59th District residents filed legal action in court, seeking a declaration that Reed was ineligible for the election due, in part, to the one-year residency requirement in the West Virginia Constitution. Reed disputed the residency claims as a politically motivated distraction to voters. The constitution prohibits individuals from serving as state senators or delegates if they haven’t been a resident within the district or county from which they are elected for one year before the candidate’s election. The residents who challenged Reed’s eligibility cited more than a dozen exhibits in their petition, including property records, voting history and campaign materials linking the candidate to a Berkeley Springs residence in the neighboring 58th District. While Reed’s certificate of candidacy announcement filed Jan. 25, 2018, with the secretary of state’s office indicated her home address was 11348 Martinsburg Road in Hedgesville, the address listed on Reed’s voter registration before Jan. 3, 2018, was 4253 Martinsburg Road in Berkeley Springs, according to information obtained from the secretary of state’s office and the petition. Kump, who defeated Reed in the May 2018 primary election, faces opposition in this May’s Republican primary by Reed’s husband, Ken Reed. In determining residency, the new code section proposed in HB 4096 states facts that might demonstrate the principal residence of a person may include: • The physical character of the person’s residence • Time spent at the residence • A candidate’s reasons for residency • Whether the person intends on returning permanently to another residence outside of the jurisdiction in the future • Whether the person obtains a license to operate a vehicle in the state • Whether the person registers a vehicle or other property at that address • Addresses listed on the person’s vehicle and voter-registration cards and driver’s license • The address where a person receives state or federal benefits • Where the person pays property or income taxes.

Hi Barb. There is a constitutional requirement that House of Delegates members live in their district, and do so for a full year before their election. A business address or PO Box can not be used under current law. The Kump bill would not affect the residency requirement of any House of Delegate district.

Unfortunately, no surprises here. Personally I think no candidate should be able to use their business address (unless they sleep in the back room) or a PO Box address for candidate requirements. What could possibly be the legitimate motivation for halting residency requirements? How can the public believe any candidate that would start their run for public office with a lie?

Becoming physically active requires a conscious effort for most adults. Develop an exercise program to fit your individual goals. Be sure to consider ways to increase your activity levels throughout the day. Every little bit helps! If you find it too challenging to fit 30 minutes of activity into your day, break it up into 10 to 15-minute intervals and accumulate your activity throughout the day.

Exercise Tips to Activate your lifestyle.

Challenge yourself to move more! Find ways to become more active in your daily living. For example, you can:

Take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator.
Take a 10-minute stretch or walk break at work.
Turn on the music and vacuum.
Wash your own car – and your neighbor’s too.
Do strength-training exercises in front of the TV
Park in the furthest parking space and walk.
Make Fitness fun!

The secret to a successful fitness program is enjoyment! Choose physical activities that you enjoy doing. This could mean walking, playing tennis, biking or joining a team sport.

Consider trying something different, such as yoga or kickboxing.
Coach a youth sports team – your rewards will be many.
Enter a race – it will motivate you.
Plant a garden and share its beauty and bounty.
Make Sunday walks or hikes a weekly tradition.
Set up a morning walking or biking club; exercise buddies can help you be honest.
Anticipate the unexpected.

Lousy weather, travel (both business and pleasure) and the ups and downs of daily life can play havoc with your best-laid fitness plan. Always have a backup plan. If it is raining have an indoor activity to do, If you are taking a trip, throw in your walking shoes or a jump rope and fit in exercise when you can.

In addition to being stronger and more fit, aerobic exercise has so many health benefits. If you need help getting started or need some motivation to contact your physical therapist. They can work with you to create an exercise plan that works for you and your ability levels. You are never too old to be more active!
