New research from Imperial College London shows that leading an active lifestyle may increase the likelihood of damaged nerves regenerating after a spinal cord injury
Researchers performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of published data on the effect of electrical stimulation therapies on spinal fusion. They found significant improvement overall in the rates of bone fusion following a course of electrical stimulation in both preclinical (animal) and clinical (human) studies.
Non-speciﬁc low back pain is the type of back pain that neither you nor your doctor can definitively, accurately trace back to its root. In other words, it is not related to a specific, diagnosable disease. An example is a back muscle strain due to an athletic injury or other trauma.
Back pain is a well-known source of discomfort in adults, but it is also being diagnosed more frequently in children and adolescents. Most parents don't expect otherwise healthy children to complain of back pain—a problem generally associated with middle age or later. However, back pain has been found to occur in between 14% and 24% of children and adolescents.
