Neuralstem can treat the symptoms of Spinal cord injury

mar 21

Neuralstem’s NSI-566 neural stem cells could provide a neuron-rich substrate to the injured spinal cord segments, possibly promoting and supporting repair, regeneration and reorganization. Neuralstem expects its cells will integrate into a patient’s own neural tissue and possibly create new circuitry to help transmit nerve signals to muscles.

Any problem with the foot or ankle resulting in a compromised posture or gait can lead to lower back pain, as well as possible pain in other weight-bearing joints, such as the hips, knees and ankles. A shoe insole can help you achieve a healthy posture and gait. This correction can allow the soft tissues in the lower back to heal, reducing pain.

Scoliosis: Mild curves, however, can develop without the parent or child knowing it because they appear gradually and usually don’t cause pain. Occasionally, teachers, friends and sports teammates are the first to notice a child’s scoliosis.

The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons recommends that the weight of a backpack should be less than 10-15 percent of a child’s body weight, but that isn’t always the case. Too often, children don’t wear their packs correctly, increasing risk of injury. Improperly used backpacks may injure muscles and joints and can lead to severe back, neck, and shoulder pain, as well as posture problems. ‪#‎MedicalFacts‬ ‪#‎SpineDisorders‬

Is applying ice helpful during sore joints?

Heat can make inflammation worse, and ice can make muscle tension and spasms worse, so they have the potential to do some mild harm when mixed up.
Both ice and heat are pointless or worse when unwanted: icing when you’re already shivering, or heating when you’re already sweating.

Obesity can cause low back pain

In addition to muscle strain, spinal structures such as the discs can be negatively impacted by obesity. Patients with significant excess weight also may experience sciatica and low back pain from a herniated disc or from a pinched nerve if the discs have been damaged from compensating for the extra weight.
