This randomized, double-blind cross-over trial evaluated the efficacy of gabapentin (1800 mg/day) for FBSS. Eligible patients had a diagnosis of FBBS, an average daily pain score of at least 4 of 10, a neuropathic pain component (indicated by the PainDetect), and reported at least half of their pain radiating in thei...

AbstractObjectiveTo examine the impact of demographic, clinical, and genetic factors as well as herniated discs on 5-year development of disc degeneration in the lumbar spine, and to investigate associations between changes in lumbar degenerative findings and pain.Materials and methodsIn 144 patients with lumbar radicular pain or low back pain, we scored disc degeneration, herniated discs, and high-intensity zones in the posterior annulus fibrosus on lumbar magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at baseline and 5-year follow-up. Genotyping (TaqMan assay) was performed for genes encoding vitamin D receptor (VDR), collagen XI &alp...

Because each sport has its own set of characteristics and physiological complications that tend to appear during exercise training, the effects and underlying mechanisms of exercise remain unclear. Thus, the first step in probing exercise effects on different diseases is the s...
