AbstractPurpose of ReviewPeople with headache usually experienced significantly lower health-related quality of life (HRQoL) than the healthy subjects. The goal of this systematic review was to evaluate the effectiveness of manual therapy on HRQoL in patients with tension-type headache (TTH), migraine (MH) or cervicogenic headache (CGH).Recent FindingsWe searched randomized controlled trials (RCTs) on MEDLINE, COCHRANE and PEDro databases. Treatment was manual therapy compared to usual care or placebo. The outcome was the HRQoL that could be measured by Headache Impact Test (HIT-6), Headache Disability Inventory (HDI), Mig...

Authors: Shen T, Xing G, Zhu J, Cai Y, Zhang S, Xu G, Feng Y, Li D, Rao J, Shi R Abstract Background: Uncontrolled blood pressure is the leading cause of mortality and disability due to associated cerebral and cardiovascular diseases and kidney failure. More than one-third of the old adult population have hypertension or prehypertension and many of their blood pressure are poorly controlled. Objective: We hypothesized that plant extracts-based antioxidants may benefit those with prehypertension/hypertension. Method: One hundred age- and gender-matched healthy older adults were randomly assigned to receive H...

ConclusionIt seems a high proportion of migraine patients might suffer from vitamin D deficiency/insufficiency. Further, the current evidence shows that in addition to routine drug therapy, vitamin D administration might reduce the frequency of attacks in migraineurs. However, these results have yet to be confirmed.

Purpose of review To carry out an update on the state of the art of the Mayaro virus (MAYV) infection and its osteoarticular implications. Recent findings There is a wide distribution of MAYV in Latin America and documented exported cases to the United States and Europe. Although osteoarticular involvement is not the most frequent, it is one the most associated with disability. The main mechanisms related to arthropathy involves cellular infiltrates (i.e. macrophages, natural killer cells, lymphocytes) together with production of cytokines, such as IL-6, IL-7, IL8, IL-12p70. Summary MAYV infection is an emerging di...

Abstract Background and Objectives: Inadequate vitamin D and calcium intake have been linked to many health issues including chronic headaches. Some studies suggested an association between low vitamin D levels and increase the risk of frequent headaches in middle-aged and older men; however, no single study reported the role of these deficiencies in migraine patients. We aimed to investigate the association of hypocalcemia and vitamin D deficiency with migraine hospitalizations. Materials and Methods: A population-based retrospective cross-sectional analysis of the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) (years 2003-20...
