Medical News Today: How can disc desiccation be treated?

The bones in the back have sponge-like discs between them. These discs can become dehydrated and lose flexibility, often as people age, resulting in desiccation. Treatment, that can include at-home therapy, depends on the severity of the desiccation, which can cause stiffness in the back and pain. Learn more here.

This study examined whether spinal CCL1 is associated with fracture-associated postoperative pain via AMPA receptor.We herein discovered that the tibial fracture with orthopedic surgery initiated and maintained chronic postoperative pain along with spinal up-regulation of CCL1/CCR8 expression and phosphorylation of GluA1-containing AMPA receptor. Central CCL1/CCR8 inhibition impaired mechanical and cold allodynia, and phosphorylated GluA1-containing AMPA receptor in the spinal dorsal horn. Intrathecal injection of GluA1-containing AMPA receptor antagonist NASPM alleviated fracture-related postoperative pain. Also, exogenou...

We thank Orhurhu et al. for their response to our publication. They suggest that future analyses examining the relationship between muscle size and low back pain (LBP) could consider the inclusion of additional confounders, such as psychological factors, patient comorbidities, and treatment modalities, which may influence pain intensity. We agree that understanding the effect of thefactors is important, however we propose that their inter-relationship is complex, particularly in a heterogeneous condition such as nonspecific LBP, and thus further investigation requires specifically designed studies.

This study brings to light the fact that there is very little information linking the relationship of the lumbar paraspinal muscles to low back pain (LBP). The results of the st udy revealed an inverse relationship between paraspinal muscle cross-sectional area and LBP disability, suggesting that treatment aimed at increasing the muscle size may be effective in reducing low back disability.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Several studies showed encouraging results after total disc replacement (TDR) in patients with cervical-brachial syndrome (CBS). OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to supplement the existing documentation of results after total disc replacement and to underline the importance of the correct indication. METHODS: The clinical and radiological outcome of 34 patients was evaluated in a 2-year follow-up by several parameters as the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) for pain, the Neck Disability Index (NDI) and the Kellgren and Lawrence Score. RESULTS: The median values for NDI changed fr...

Confinement experiments are essential to prepare long-term space exploration. The 180-day Chinese CELSS (Controlled Ecological Life Support System) study is unique in its design, including a closed-loop system and mid-mission simulation of Mars-like day-night cycle of 24h40min for 36 days (days 72-108). Our aim was to study physiological and psychological consequences of this confinement in 4 healthy volunteers (1 female). CELSS platform consisted of 6 interconnected modules including 4 greenhouses. Life support systems were controlled automatically. Body composition, fluid compartments, metabolic state, heart, large vess...

Stem cells are considered as the principal source of differentiated cells. In the past few years, the research on the stem cell in various fields had shown success, but the stem cell-based therapies in the dentistry had confined to a particular extent. The present case report was aimed to evaluate the efficacy of stem cells from human exfoliated deciduous teeth (SHED) in the management of a large periapical lesion. A 12-year-old girl reported with a chief complaint of pain in the lower right back tooth region since 5 days. Intraoral examination revealed a deep occlusal cavity in relation to tooth#46 with tenderness on perc...

But the feeling of helplessness it produced in him was even worse."I felt like I was being attacked by this invisible enemy," Witt says."It was nothing that I asked for, and I didn't even know how to battle it."So he channeled his frustration into ...
