Neurology Fellowships for an academic career in neuromodulation?

I’m interested in this broad field and was wondering which fellowships would be good for it. I know of a person who did pain fellowships and now has a good setup at a large-ish hospital, does a lot of spinal cord stimulation but his patient population seems to be relatively….. umm not my cup of tea. Mostly chronic pain with little improvement. I would personally like the same setup- a fair bit of procedure, opportunity for research but with more than just chronic pain patients. I’ve heard...

This study aimed to investigate the altered ultrasonographic activity of abdominal muscles during breathing in males with and without nonspecific chronic low back pain (NSCLBP).DesignCross-sectional study.MethodsTwenty males with NSCLBP and 20 males without NSCLBP were recruited. Muscle thickness change was measured by ultrasonography during breathing in the end-inspiration and end-expiration phases for the transverse abdominis (TrA), internal oblique (IO), external oblique (EO), and rectus abdominis (RA) muscles. The data were normalized to the end-inspiration thickness. An independentt test was run to analyze the data at...

The objective of this study was to compare OAT versus SMT with regard to risk of adverse drug events (ADEs) among older adults with cLBP. Summary of Background Data. We examined Medicare claims data spanning a 5-year period on fee-for-service beneficiaries aged 65 to 84 years, continuously enrolled under Medicare Parts A, B, and D for a 60-month study period, and with an episode of cLBP in 2013. We excluded patients with a diagnosis of cancer or use of hospice care. Methods. All included patients received long-term management of cLBP with SMT or OAT. We assembled cohorts of patients who received SMT or OAT ...

CONCLUSIONS: The study revealed a high prevalence of fatigue symptomatology among middle-aged and older adults with SB. Symptoms of anxiety and depression were more common than among persons with chronic SCI and norms. SB follow-ups should include awareness of psychological distress and fatigue, and investigate pain and medication side effects among possible influencing factors.IMPLICATIONS FOR REHABILITATIONClinicians treating adult persons with SB should be aware of possible psychological distress and fatigue symptomatology among these patients.We suggest an initial screening for psychological distress and fatigue in per...

Conclusion: Identifying the local population needs and the availability of NHS resources helped in developing integrated pathways merging efforts of main teams needed to look after such complex patients, with new MDT clinics and fatigue clinics started. A local model of post COVID 19 follow up was developed with red flags early identified to reduce hospital re admissions and long term complications

J Fam Pract. 2021 Oct;70(8):E2-E3. doi: 10.12788/jfp.0291.ABSTRACTYes, it is somewhat effective. Exercise therapy-including general exercise, yoga, Pilates, and motor control exercise-has been shown to modestly decrease pain in chronic low back pain (LBP); levels of benefit in short- (≤ 3 months) and long- (≥ 1 year) term follow-up range from 4% to 15% improvement (strength of recommendation [SOR] A, based on a systematic review of randomized controlled trials [RCTs]).Exercise therapy may improve function and decrease work disability in subacute and chronic LBP, respectively (SOR A, based on a meta-analysis of RCTs)....

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTRecent studies have revealed that glial sigma-1 receptor (Sig-1R) in the spinal cord may be a critical factor to mediate sensory function. However, the functional role of Sig-1R in astrocyte has not been clearly elucidated. Here, we determined whether Sig-1Rs modulate calcium responses in primary cultured astrocytes and pathological changes in spinal astrocytes, and whether they contribute to pain hypersensitivity in naïve mice and neuropathic pain following chronic constriction injury (CCI) of the...
