Abstract The present work aims to evaluate the effect of melatonin (Mel) on affective and cognitive disorders induced by chronic exposure to Cadmium (Cd). Male and female Wistar rats received either an intraperitoneal injection of saline solution NaCl (0.9%), Mel (4 mg/kg), Cd (1 mg/kg), or Cd (1 mg/kg) + Mel (4 mg/kg) for 8 weeks. Behavioral disorders were evaluated by different tests mainly the open field and elevated plus maze tests for anxiety-like behavior, forced swimming test (FST) for depression-like behavior, and the Y-maze and Morris water maze (MWM) tests for cognitive disorders. Thereafter, oxidative s...

In this study, causal mediation analysis was used to determine whether the effect of CFT on disability and the lack of effect on pain (relative to a group exercise and educati on intervention) is mediated by certain psychological and lifestyle factors. Hypothesised mediators measured were pain self‐efficacy, stress, fear of physical activity, coping, depression, anxiety, and sleep, at 6 months. The outcomes measured were functional disability and pain intensity at 12 mo nths. This causal mediation study shows that the majority of benefit of CFT (relative to a group exercise and education intervention) for disability is d...

Authors: Gire J, Alokozai A, Sheikholeslami N, Lindsay S, Eppler SL, Kamal RN Abstract There are different frameworks to describe how people make decisions. One framework, maximization, is an approach where individuals approach choices with a goal of finding the 'best' possible alternative. We sought to determine the relationship between maximization and patient reported disability in patients with hand problems. We performed a cross-sectional study of 119 patients who presented to a hand surgery clinic. Patients completed a questionnaire that included sociodemographics, QuickDASH, Decisional Conflict Scale, Pain C...

Previous studies have demonstrated that parental cognitive, behavioral, and emotional factors are related to child functioning in children and adolescents with chronic pain. This is particularly important to understand how to potentially enhance the efficacy of psychological interventions for children by incorporating interventions targeting parents. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to identify the specific parent factors that have been examined in the literature and to quantify the associations observed between parent factors and child pain and disability. A search of the electronic databases EMBASE, Psy...

SPONSORED POST By SAM HOLLIDAY Medically reviewed by Jenny Blair, MD Gastrointestinal diseases like inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are more prevalent—and costlier—than many employers realize. Up to 70 million Americans are affected by gastrointestinal (GI) diseases each year—twice as many people as those living with diabetes (34.2 million).[1],[2] Overall direct healthcare costs for GI diseases are estimated to be $136 billion each year in the U.S., more than heart disease ($113bn) and mental health disorders ($99bn...

ConclusionsPatients acknowledge short- and long-term benefits of physical activity for their spine and overall health; however, many are deterred from increasing activity by spine-related concerns. Interventions to improve physical activity should foster self-efficacy and self-direction and should be reinforced by members of the spine care team who are knowledgeable about prudent activities.
