Amidst the population below the age of 40, the most common form of knee pain is the patellofemoral pain (PFP) with the prevalence of 23% with inferior long-term prognosis. The only one-third of persons get improvement from pain one year after diagnosis. However, the approaches involving its management are not up to the mark. There is a need for the improvisation of strategies with an alternative mechanism of action, beyond joints and muscles, desensitising strategies that involve exercises that target activities and movements of patients find painful and fearful.
A migraine headache is a type of headache that is often accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to light and sound. During pregnancy, many women experience an improvement in migraine symptoms, and about one-third report complete remission. The drug utilization patterns and factors predicting drug use in pregnant women with a migraine have been explored only in limited studies.
Increasing shoulder horizontal abduction position has shown to considerably increase the magnitude of the anterior force on the shoulder at ball release in baseball players confirms a recent study published in "The American Journal of Sports Medicine." In addition, the combination of 80.6° of shoulder abduction and 10.7° of horizontal shoulder adduction reduced the shear forces on the shoulder at this point.
A recent study revealed that the risk (age and sex adjusted) of NL was increased by 60% in cases compared to controls. Increased risk of nephrolithiasis (NL) is a very well-known complication of gout. Though there are few comparative studies revealing the association of risk factors for NL in gout. In this cohort study, scientists investigated:
(1) the overall incidence of NL in gout patients (cases) and the general population (controls);
(2) risk and risk factors such as common comorbidities and medications for first-time NL in cases and controls separately.
Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG) stimulation has shown to significantly reduce the severity of patients' pain and also improved the quality of life of patients through 12-months post-implant, confirms a recent study published in Neuromodulation Journal. Frank J. P. M. Huygen and colleagues conducted a prospective observational study to estimate the effectiveness of DRG stimulation in real-world clinical circumstances.
