One of the most common methods of stem cell therapy is taking stem cells from one part of the patient’s body and using it to heal another part. This is typically done using bone marrow, which is rich in stem cells. Their ability to regenerate into tissue cells make them a great option for patients looking for non-invasive healing methods. However, what can be done when the amount of cells extracted is not enough?
Most studies have shown that men are more likely than women to put off visiting the doctor. There are several possible reasons for this discrepancy, but the bottom line is that men may need an extra prod to get health concerns—such as various types of aches and pains checked by a medical professional.
Sleep Better for Back Pain Relief: When you have back pain, sleeping can be hard. It can be a vicious cycle because when you don't get enough sleep, your back pain may feel worse. A poor sleep position can also aggravate back pain. Try lying on your side. Place a pillow between your knees to keep your spine in a neutral position and relieve strain on your back. If you need to sleep on your back, slide a pillow under your knees. Be sure to sleep on a comfortable firm mattress.
What Is Acupuncture? Acupuncture is an age-old healing practice of traditional Chinese medicine in which thin needles are placed at specific points in the body. It's primarily used to relieve pain but also has been used to treat other conditions. More than 3 million Americans use acupuncture, but it is even more popular in other countries. In France, for example, one in five people have tried acupuncture.
What Is Chronic Pain? What condition do more than 100 million Americans share -- maybe including you? Whether it's caused by arthritis, migraines, fibromyalgia, or bad backs, chronic pain -- the kind that hangs on for weeks, months, or years -- can change your life. Never ignore pain. Whatever the intensity -- mild, moderate or severe -- treatment usually can help.
As scientists and physicians race to explore new and more effective strategies to treat pain, many are investigating how technology might play a role. One of the most exciting, and promising, developments in this area is the use of virtual reality.
Every cycling enthusiast knows that the repetitive motion of cycling and sitting in the same position for a long time can take its toll on one’s neck, shoulders, back, tailbone, knees, wrists, and forearms. Especially if you are biking long distances or you are a “mature” rider. To be as comfortable as possible, it’s essential to maintain good hydration to keep tissue flexible, make stretching a daily routine (even if you are only riding on the weekends), and to stretch before and after every ride.
It is accepted that the cartilage in our joints does not have the ability to heal itself due to lack of blood supply. Currently, there are not many effective treatments for cartilage regeneration. Stem cells may be an answer. A recent Phase III clinical trial at the Medical Center for Translational Research (MTR) of Osaka University looks into the effectiveness of stem cells in regenerating cartilage tissues.
New seasons are an opportunity to assess our states of health and realign with our natural rhythms. From an acupuncture perspective, fall is about refinement. It’s time to pare down, to let go of the excesses we allowed ourselves in summer and focus on what’s necessary for winter. In acupuncture theory, humans are viewed as microcosms of the natural world that surrounds them. Weather and climate, particularly during the transition from one season to another, factor significantly into acupuncture diagnoses and treatment plans.
