New research provides insight into a long-observed but little-understood connection between chronic pain and anxiety, and offers a potential target for treatment.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – A new Gallup study highlights the extent to which neck and back pain affect American adults, with one in four reporting that they have seen a health-care professional for significant neck or back pain within the past year and nearly two-thirds (65 per cent) saying they have done so at some point in their lives.
FREDERICTON – Researchers at the University of New Brunswick have launched a study to find out whether a protein drink can help build muscle – without exercise.
Instability is thought to be a clinical classification of LBP that clinicians should be aware of.
This Cochrane review summarizes the most current evidence on the effectiveness of acupuncture on acute, subacute and chronic neck pain.
A simple model consisting of four risk factors can help surgeons to predict the risk of complications after surgery for cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) – a common condition causing compression of the spinal cord in the neck, reports a study published in the July issue of Neurosurgery, official journal of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, published by Wolters Kluwer.
Scientists in Montreal have discovered a new genetic mutation linked to ''bone death'' or osteonecrosis of the hip, with the help of four young siblings who suffered from the debilitating disease.
OTTAWA – The Canadian military is trying out a "bionic" knee brace developed by a Halifax-based company.
Graft size, sex and age have a significant effect on the odds of an ACL re-tear post reconstruction with a hamstring graft, say researchers presenting their work at the recent annual meeting of the American Orthopaedic Society of Sports Medicine in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
A new study in zebrafish suggests that irregular fluid flow through the spinal column brought on by gene mutations is linked to a type of scoliosis that can affect humans during adolescence. Found in humans and zebrafish, these mutated genes damage the cilia – tiny hair-like projections that line the spinal canal and help move the fluid – and lead to a curvature of the spine.
Low back pain (LBP) is one of society’s costliest afflictions. Aside from lost work time and treatment costs associated with a new case of LBP, a potentially significant financial burden lies in the recurrence of this condition.
This esteemed group of authors has put together a nice summary of the advances in the understanding of back and neck pain over the past decade as evidenced in the current literature.
While scientists have known for many years that there are cells living in the cavities surrounding various organs such as the heart, lung and liver, their function has remained unknown. A recent study from the Cumming School of Medicine at the University of Calgary examined these cells, and discovered they play an integral role in fast tissue repair. The study was published in the journal Cell this month.
