The majority of football players in the US (70 per cent) are elementary and middle school students. These young athletes enthusiastically put on their gear, learn strategy, acquire skills, and participate in games with their peers. Unfortunately, like their professional counterparts these athletes sometimes get injured. Fairly often they sustain head impacts during tackling and blocking maneuvers. Exposure to head impacts in American football has become a national concern: neurocognitive and brain changes can occur from repeated head impacts, even when no evidence of concussion is found.
Four out of six people with paralyzing spinal cord injuries who were treated with a new cell therapy have recovered two or more motor levels on at least one side, new study results show.

DALLAS – University of Texas Southwestern (UTSW) researchers have uncovered new clues about how gut bacteria and the body's circadian clock work together to promote body fat accumulation.
CHICAGO – Researchers are tackling fresh questions about a degenerative brain disease now that it has been detected in the brains of nearly 200 football players after death. The suspected cause is repeated head blows, an almost unavoidable part of contact sports.
Montreal's world-famous brain research centre is in the middle of conducting an experiment on what could be its most ambitious subject: itself.
TV infomercials offer a world of potential solutions for back pain, but most of them have at least one of three problems – they're unproven, unworkable or just plain unattractive.
A number of systematic reviews have been performed on spinal manipulative therapy (SMT), although their findings have been conflicting.
High-level containment labs at Canada's National Microbiology Laboratory (NML) in Winnipeg are being expanded to allow scientists increased capacity to research some of the world's most dangerous infectious diseases, federal Health Minister Jane Philpott announced Thursday.
