Assessment of musculoskeletal pain in dance focusing on dance-style related differences.
Assessment of musculoskeletal pain in dance focusing on dance-style related differences. Phys Sportsmed. 2019 May 17;:1-8 Authors: Lampe J, Groneberg DA, Borgetto B, Ohlendorf D, W.e EM Abstract OBJECTIVES: Pain in dance may be related to the high specific load on the musculoskeletal system caused by dance techniques. Up to the present, data on pain-relevant aspects considering the dance style as a contributing factor to pain occurrence in dance are still pending. The aim of this study was to analyze and compare dance-style specific pain with regard to prevalence, localization, subjective pain perception, duration, frequency, temporary dynamics and pain evaluation in dancers of the two popular dance styles (ballet and contemporary dance). METHODS: The quantitative cross-sectional observation study with descriptive focus was carried out in n = 64 classical (ballet) dancers (B) and n = 81 jazz/modern/contemporary dancers (JMC). All participants were non-professional dancers. The data were collected by using an online questionnaire consisting of existing pain assessments adapted for dance. RESULTS: Above all, differences were found in the comparison of the dancers' body regions. While the lower extremity was particularly affected in ballet dancers (B) (right calf, p = 0.04; forefoot and toes, p

This study included 65 patients with lumbar spondylolisthesis, who underwent either open transpedicular screw fixation (OTPSF) with posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) (OTPSF group, n = 33) or PPSF with reduction system (PPSFr group, n = 32) after PLIF. The slippage degree (SD); the intervertebral disc height (IDH); lumbar lordosis (LL); and segmental angle (SA) were measured on the follow-up simple lateral radiographs. For pain and functional assessment in patients, visual analogue scale (VAS) scores for low back pain and leg pain, and Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) scores were measured. SA (P

Authors: Dosoky NS, Satyal P, Pokharel S, Setzer WN Abstract Rhododendron anthopogon D. Don., A small compact Himalayan shrub growing in Nepal, is a known medicinal plant used to treat sore throat, colds, blood disorders, bone disease, potato allergies, and vomiting, and to relieve liver disorders, headaches and back pain. The present study investigated the chemical composition and bioactivities of the leaf essential oil from R. anthopogon from Dhankuta, Nepal. The essential oil from leaves was obtained by hydrodistillation and a detailed chemical analysis was conducted by gas chromatography - mass spectrometry.(GC...
ConclusionsMusculoskeletal problems are the main occupational health problems experienced by the study group. New findings include a low but important prevalence of ultraviolet radiation–associated conditions. One in 3 guides have experienced significant psychological trauma, and one quarter of these had symptoms of PTSD.
Conclusions: Acupuncture reduced visceral pain behavior and induced significant changes in neuronal activity as well as in the levels of pain/inflammation-related cytokines and neurotransmitters in the brain-gut axis. Further researches on the thalamus and on a standard animal model are warranted to improve our knowledge on the mechanism of acupuncture that facilitates visceral pain modulation.
