OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of dry needling (DN) and ischemic compression (IC) on the headache symptoms as well as MTrP-related features in subjects with CeH originating from MTrPs of the SCM muscle using a sonographic method. METHODS: A total of 29 female su...

Authors: Teragaki M, Yamamoto T, Hosomi K, Tada Y, Maeda K, Nishiya D, Miyazaki C, Takagi Y, Sakanoue Y, Nishida Y, Okuno H, Tsuiki M, Naruse M Abstract A 46-year-old woman complained of a 10-year history of headache, nausea, a precordial oppressive feeling and shortness of breath on miction. She had noted a marked elevation in her blood pressure after miction using home blood pressure measurement. Her catecholamine levels were less than twice the value of the normal upper limit. Several imaging modalities detected a urinary bladder tumor, and 123I- metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scintigraphy showed positive accumu...

Abstract Neurological diseases particularly Alzheimer's disease (AD), Parkinson's disease (PD), stroke, and epilepsy are on the rise all around the world causing morbidity and mortality globally with a common symptom of gradual loss or impairment of motor behaviour.

Dopamine, serotonin, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), and glutamate, to name a few, interact in regulating the excitation and inhibition of motor neuro...

Studies have indicated that a rising number of mothers-to-be have turned to marijuana products for relief from morning sickness and headaches, though its effectiveness has not been backed by science. Cannabis industry officials say too little sound research is available on THC to support such a move and warn that it could make marijuana companies a target for lawsuits with unve...
