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.
After a concussion, the most common symptoms are headache and dizziness, followed by nausea and neck pain. Although the majority of symptoms resolve in seven to 10 days, in approximately 30 per cent of athletes they persist. Post-concussion headaches have been reported as a predictor of longer time loss, while cervical spine trauma may cause prolonged post-concussion headache. Dizziness and balance dysfunction are also commonly reported following sport-related concussion.
Neck pain and headache (including migraine) are very common conditions that prompt millions of people to seek health care every year, and persons with these conditions often utilize chiropractic care.
Doctors of chiropractic serve approximately 10 per cent of the Canadian population annually, with the aim to improve the health and well-being of Canadians, primarily with musculoskeletal disorders. Despite available evidence for optimal management of these disorders, poor adherence to guidelines and wide variations in service delivery by clinicians have been noted across health-care disciplines, including chiropractic.
Breaking a major bone may increase risk of widespread chronic body pain in later life, a new study has found.
Despite the health-enhancing benefits of physical activity, this alone may not be enough to reduce the risk of disease and illness. Population-based studies found more than half of an average person’s working day involves sedentary activities associated with prolonged sitting.
PHILADELPHIA – Physicians and others now recognize that seemingly mild, concussion-type head injuries lead to long-term cognitive impairments surprisingly often. A brain protein called SNTF, which rises in the blood after some concussions, signals the type of brain damage that is thought to be the source of these cognitive impairments, according to a study led by researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, and the University of Glasgow in Glasgow, U.K.
HALIFAX – In a lab at Dalhousie University's medical school, a few twitches of a mouse's leg represent a big step forward for research into motor neuron disease.
Some six million people in the U.S. suffer from scoliosis, a sideways curvature of the spine. These include approximately two to three per cent of adolescents who are diagnosed each year with idiopathic scoliosis, which is usually identified during puberty and progresses until skeletal maturity. One in 500 children today require treatment using spine braces and one in 5,000 need spinal surgery.
