Why People Are Swimming in Freezing Water

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 13:15:10 +0100

Forget dipping your toe in the deep end. In countries around the world, intrepid swimmers of all ages plunge into ice-cold waters for a thrill that can feel as sharp as daggers–and bragging rights that last all winter. Welcome to the fun and frigid world of cold-water swimming. The hobby is nothing new. It’s been around for centuries in chilly climes such as Russia and Finland, and people have been crossing the notoriously frosty, 21-mile-long English Channel without wet suits since at least the 1800s. The Coney Island Polar Bear Club hosted its first U.S. ocean dip in 1903. And while polar plunges have become relatively common, some of these swims are not for the faint of heart. Only 11 people in recorded history, for example, have completed the so-called Ice Zero: a mile-long...

Lena Dunham Reveals She Had a Hysterectomy to Stop Pain From Endometriosis

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 15:27:44 +0100

Lena Dunham said she underwent a total hysterectomy — the surgical removal of the cervix and uterus — in an attempt to ease the pain caused by endometriosis. In an essay for the March issue of Vogue, which was excerpted by the Endometriosis Foundation of America, the Girls creator said she had the surgery to address chronic pain from endometriosis, which occurs when the tissue that lines the inside of a woman’s uterus grows in places outside the uterus. Dunham, 31, has been open in the past about her struggle with the condition, which affects about 176 million women across the globe. Dunham wrote in her essay that she elected to have a hysterectomy after “years of complex surgeries measuring in the double digits” and alternative treatments, including yoga, acu...

Why Swimming in Cold Water May Be Good for Pain Relief

Mon, 12 Feb 2018 23:30:23 +0100

Taking a plunge in cold water paid off for a 28-year-old man with chronic nerve pain. A case study published Monday in The BMJ tells the plight of a man who was debilitated by chronic pain 10 weeks after a successful surgery to curtail chronic facial flushing. (The procedure involves cutting the nerves responsible for blushing, which are found in the chest.) Drugs weren’t working, the researchers write, and exercise seemed to make things worse, rendering his prescribed physical therapy program all but impossible. Desperate for relief, the man — who had been a triathlete before his surgery — decided to go for an open-water swim. If nothing else, he thought, it would get his mind off the nerve pain for a little while. But after plunging into 51-degree water and swimming for...

New Report Sheds Light on Opioid Industry's Role in Epidemic

Mon, 12 Feb 2018 11:39:00 +0100

WASHINGTON (AP) — Companies selling some of the most lucrative prescription painkillers funneled millions of dollars to advocacy groups that in turn promoted the medications' use, according to a report released Monday by a U.S. senator. The investigation by Missouri's Sen. Claire McCaskill sheds light on the opioid industry's ability to shape public opinion and raises questions about its role in an overdose epidemic that has claimed hundreds of thousands of American lives. Representatives of some of the drugmakers named in the report said they did not set conditions on how the money was to be spent or force the groups to advocate for their painkillers. The report from McCaskill, ranking Democrat on the Senate's homeland security committee, examines advocacy funding by the makers of the t...

Neuromodulation 2.0: Enabling the Next Generation of Device-Based Therapies for Treating Chronic Diseases

Tue, 06 Feb 2018 18:16:13 +0100

The neuromodulation device industry is enjoying a period of tremendous growth and diversification. A 2016 article by Neurotech Reports estimated the global market for neurotechnology products to be $7.6 billion predicted it will hit $12 billion by 2020.

However, there are new neuromodulation devices under development aimed at less traditional applications, including sleep apnea, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory diseases. Electrode and implantable electronics technologies for neuromodulation devices cont...

What Treatment is Recommended for Common Headaches?

Mon, 15 Jan 2018 00:46:32 +0100

Discussion Headache is pain in the scalp, forehead, orbits and temple. Facial and neck pain are usually excluded from this definition. It is a common problem with more than 6 million pediatric patients having migraine. Headaches can also have co-morbidities and more than 1 primary headache type can co-exist. The costs are high both economically and in the quality of life for the patients and families. A review of common headache types and indications for neuroimaging can be found here. Treatment is necessarily multi-pronged. Patients should understand their diagnosis so they can understand what reasonably can be expected from treatment, how they can prevent headaches and how they can help to treat themselves once the headache occurs. When patients and families think about treatment for h...

How Medtronic Wants to & #039;Evolve & #039; Spinal Stimulation

Wed, 10 Jan 2018 19:29:26 +0100

Medtronic seeks to prove high-dose spinal stimulation just as good as low-dose About 9,000 patients with chronic lower back and leg pain have had a personal trial of Medtronic’s Evolve workflow to help their physicians decide how much high- and/or low-spinal cord stimulation they need to manage pain.

Medtronic hopes that the Vectors study will produce step-by-step instructions for physicians on how to best use Intellis’ high- and low-dose stimulation to meet each patient’s needs, according to Matt Thomas, general manager of the company’s stimulation and early interventions business.

Tips For Managing Chronic Pain For A Better Life

Sat, 06 Jan 2018 04:21:06 +0100

Being diagnosed with a chronic pain condition can change a person’s life. This type of pain--defined as lasting longer than 3-6 months--can be the result of many different factors, such as injury, arthritis, or a condition like fibromyalgia, but the effects are similar in many cases: they make life harder. You may find it more difficult to do basic household chores or to find the energy to exercise; it may be harder to concentrate at work or school, and you may be more at risk for depression and anxiety.

[Image from unsplash.com]Opioid-related deaths have become an epidemic in the U.S., garnering attention from the White House, the FDA and many other governmental bodies. From 2000 to 2014, nearly half a million Americans died from drug overdoses. In 2015, more than 50,000 people died from drug overdoses, and 33,000 were opioid-related.

The Council of Economic Advisers reports that the opioid crisis had an economic cost of $504 billion in 2015, and prescription opioid misuse increases healthcare and substance abuse treatment costs by $29.4 billion. There are several devices and technologies currently on the market that are designed to reduce opioid abuse. They include techno...

What is DIOS?

Mon, 18 Dec 2017 00:56:47 +0100

Discussion Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane receptor (CFTR). It is found in the epithelium of the bronchi, intestine, pancreatic duct and biliary tree. It regulates chloride, bicarbonate and water secretion. The heterozygous state helps prevent against secretory diarrhea, but the homozygous state causes thickened secretions in the hollow tubes of the lungs and digestive tract. There are multiple mutations (> 2000) which have been currently classified into classes depending on their protein production and activity. CF patients generally are living longer with improved morbidity because of new treatments including lung transplantation but they also are at higher risk of having gastrointestinal problems over th...

What is Dissociation & Multiple Personality Disorder?

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 14:53:06 +0100

Dissociation is a mental process, which produces a lack of connection in a person’s thoughts, memories, feelings, actions, or sense of identity. During the period of time when a person is dissociating, certain information is not associated with other information as it normally would be. For example, during a traumatic experience, a person may dissociate the memory of the place and circumstances of the trauma from his ongoing memory, resulting in a temporary mental escape from the fear and pain of the trauma and, in some cases, a memory gap surrounding the experience. Because this process can produce changes in memory, people who frequently dissociate often find their senses of personal history and identity are affected. Most clinicians believe that dissociation exists on a continuum ...
