Authors: Yadav S, Dwivedi VK, Gupta S, Surolia A Abstract Neuropathic pain arises because of neuronal injury. Unlike inflammatory pain which can be managed by classical nonsteroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), neuropathic pain is difficult to treat. The classical NSAIDs work through inhibition of cyclooxygenase 2 (COX2) enzyme. However, COX2 inhibitors are insufficient to treat neuropathic pain. Hence, it becomes important to explore for novel molecules acting through cell surface molecules like ion channels, for the treatment of neuropathic pain. We investigated multiple bromobenzothiophene carboxamides for th...

Authors: Hellwinkel JE, McCarty EC, Khodaee M Abstract Sports-related injuries to the shoulder are common causes of disability. Injuries to the sternoclavicular joint (SCJ) in sports are more rare, though have been reported in a small number of cases. SCJ injury classification is determined by the degree of joint displacement and direction of clavicular displacement. Direction of displacement is particularly important due to risk of injury to intrathoracic structures, which has the potential to result in fatal outcomes. These injuries are important to identify in athletes and can be difficult to assess on the field...

Authors: Henn L, Hardt J Abstract Chronic pain and especially back pain rank among the most meaningful medical conditions worldwide. This leads to extensive costs in medical care systems. In about 80-85% of cases there is no morphologic evidence for a possible pain etiology, hence such forms are called "non-specific back pain". Therapies with a pure focus on symptomatic aspects are not effective to treat non-specific pain. The origin of chronic back pain can be best explained via a multi causal mechanism with a combination of bio-psycho-social, biographical, neurobiological, genetic, and cognitive factors...

ConclusionConservative non-pharmacologic therapies reflect an adequate strategy to relief pain in elite athletes. Chronic states of pain reflect more complex scenarios requiring further comprehensive techniques. Future research should thus also address multimodal approaches combining several of the mentioned therapies.RésuméActualitésLa douleur aiguë est un signe d’alerte qui induit l’arrêt de la pratique sportive. Lorsqu’elle se prolonge, la douleur limite l’activité de l’athlète et peut anticiper la fin de sa carrière. Soigner la douleur e...
