This study aims to evaluate the efficacy of LAT in patients experiencing inadequate recovery from Bell's palsy. Methods: This 2-armed, parallel, randomized, subject-assessor-blinded, single-center, sham-controlled pilot trial will randomly assign 32 eligible patients into either a real LAT group (nā€Š=ā€Š16) or a sham LAT group (nā€Š=ā€Š16). The real LAT group will receive 3 LAT sessions each week for 6 weeks (a total of 18 sessions), delivered to acupoints corresponding with the affected side of the face. The sham LAT group will receive the same treatment as the real LAT group, but with a sham laser device. The primary...

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.

(SAN FRANCISCO) — Veterinarians successfully used alternative medical treatments such as acupuncture on three wild animals burned in the Southern California wildfires, although one patient — a 5-month-old mountain lion — did keep eating his fish-skin and corn-husk bandages, vets at the University of California, Davis said Wednesday. Rescuers brought two adult bears, one of them pregnant, and the young mountain lion to veterinarians with the state Department of Fish and Wildlife and the university after the animals were hurt in the largest wildfire in state history. They were found in the Los Padres Nation...

AbstractLow-level laser acupuncture (LLLA) produces photobiomodulation through acupuncture point and is an alternative to low-level laser therapy. Although the analgesic effect of LLLA on chronic pain has been proven, its effect on acute postincisional pain has yet to be investigated. A plantar incision (PI) model was used to mimic human postsurgical pain. Male adult rats received GaAlAs laser irradiation at the right ST36 acupoint immediately after operation and on the following 4  days. Three laser treatment groups (two red laser groups with a 30- or 15-min treatment duration and one 30-min near-infrared laser group...
