High intensity physical activity in early life might help maximise peak hip strength and prevent osteoporosis in later life, according to a new study.
Ultrasound-Guided Peripheral Nerve Stimulation for Shoulder Pain: Anatomic Review and Assessment of the Current Clinical Evidence
To provide a basic overview of peripheral nerve stimulator placement targeting the axillary and suprascapular nerves. Furthermore, to demonstrate the suggested implantation and current evidence of peripheral nerve stimulation for the treatment of shoulder pain.
Back in 2006, scientists made a major breakthrough when they discovered how to turn normal cells back into stem cells. Ever since, scientists have been exploring how to turn stem cells into just what we want them to be. To repair damaged cartilage, what we’d really like is fresh new cartilage grown from our own stem cells. This is what a new study out of Stanford University, just published in the journal Nature Medicine, promises to do.
Regenerative therapies startup Jointechlabs Inc. has won the U.S. FDA’s nod for its MiniTC point-of-care fat tissue processing device. The 510(k)-cleared product is designed to extract microfat for use in grafts for a variety of indications, including medical aesthetics, plastic surgery, orthobiologics and wound healing.
With some gyms closed and a number of people working from home, the COVID-19 pandemic has made it more difficult for many people to get in their daily workout. Sedentary behavior, including sitting for long periods of time, can contribute to adverse health effects
The study led by Imperial College London found that flexibility, as well as density, in the bone nanostructure is an important factor in assessing how likely someone is to suffer fractures.
A variety of issues can cause knee swelling, including injuries and medical conditions such as arthritis. A person can treat some of these causes at home, while other issues require care from a doctor. In some cases, the cause of the swelling is chronic and requires long-term treatment.
Bone density tests are often touted as a way to predict the risk of fracture in postmenopausal women, but a new study casts doubt on the value of repeating this commonly used test.
A mix of non-addictive medicines may be safer and equally successful in managing pain after shoulder or knee surgery, a study from Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit indicates. Concerned about the opioid abuse epidemic, doctors there tested a different regimen for pain relief. They treated post-surgical pain with a combination of non-opioid medications, including anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxants and nerve pain relievers.
