  • Understanding Different Types of Back Pain

    Understanding Different Types of Back Pain

    As you may already know through personal experience, back pain can be uniquely complex and difficult to diagnose and treat. There are many types of back pain and a wide range of treatments that may or may not work for the same condition.

    Back Pain Is A Complicated, Personal Experience - The intensity and manageability of pain are very different for every person.

  • CBD Cream for Pain – Benefits & Instructions

    CBD Cream for Pain – Benefits & Instructions

    What Are the Benefits of CBD Cream? CBD cream can be used to treat a very specific area of your body that’s experiencing pain. If you take CBD oil for a sore muscle, you’ll get a general pain relief throughout your entire body, but the muscle pain itself may not completely disappear. On the other hand, if you apply CBD cream to your sore muscle, all of CBD’s pain-relieving effects will focus on that one area. It’s like taking an aspirin for a sore muscle versus getting a massage. With the aspirin, you get general pain relief, but the muscle may still be tight and sore. But with the massage, you can focus on the muscle until it is relaxed and pain-free.

  • Current Stem Cell‐Based Clinical Trials for Covid‐19 Patients

    Current Stem Cell‐Based Clinical Trials for Covid‐19 Patients

    Although many countries including the USA, China, Italy, UK, France, Spain, Germany, Turkey, Iran, Brazil, and Jordon have proposed stem cell use for COVID‐19 patients, only a limited number of stem cell‐based studies are available currently to deduce solid limitations or potential of such therapy for COVID‐19. A study recently conducted in Beijing's YouAn Hospital, China, from January 23, 2020 to February 16, 2020 suggests a possible role of MSCs administration in COVID‐19 treatment (Leng et al., 2020).

    How Long Does a Pinched Nerve Last?

    When a doctor says you have a pinched nerve in your neck or back, it typically means that a compressed or inflamed nerve root is sending pain, tingling, numbness, and/or weakness into the arm or leg. These symptoms may be caused by a herniated disc, bone spur, or other spinal degeneration or injury. Let’s take a look at how long a pinched nerve and its related pain typically lasts.

  • CBD Cream for Pain Management

    CBD Cream for Pain Management

    We’re probably stating the obvious here, but the pain is a drag! Whether it’s chronic (no pun intended) or acute, pain can make your life unbearable. Up until recently, the solution for a pain that just won’t go away has been powerful opioids. These drugs often cause more problems than they’re worth. Thankfully, a new, non-addictive treatment for pain is taking the medical community by storm: CBD cream.

  • Why Stem Cells Could Be an Effective Treatment Option for Covid‐19 Patients

    Why Stem Cells Could Be an Effective Treatment Option for Covid‐19 Patients

    Most COVID‐19 patients do not develop any major clinical symptoms during the early stages of infection. Common symptoms include mild or high temperature, cough, sore throat, muscle distress, and body pain. In a few patients, shortness of breath can lead to a sudden deterioration in the health of the patient during the later stages of the disease. In severe cases, immune system dysfunction is the major cause of death in patients as infection stimulates inflammatory cytokines that result in the respiratory system being overwhelmed by a storm of inflammatory cytokines such as interleukin 2 (IL‐2), IL‐6, granulocyte colony-stimulating factor, IP10, MCP1, MIP1A, and tumor necrosis factor.

    Severe Lower Back Pain When Sitting or Bending

    Lower back pain may occur while sitting or standing for a prolonged period. Pain may also occur when there is an active spinal movement, such as attempting to stand up and/or bend down. Lower back pain can be an intermittent discomfort or a continuous ache. Sometimes, the pain may be particularly severe when you sit down, rise from a chair, or straighten your back after bending forward. While in most cases the underlying cause of the pain can be identified, sometimes back pain may be non-specific with no identifiable cause.

  • Possible Stem Cell Sources and Types for Covid‐19 Patients

    Possible Stem Cell Sources and Types for Covid‐19 Patients

    Stem cells are unspecialized cells in the body that have the potential to make more stem cells as well as differentiate into specialized cells of the body if appropriate signals are given in vitro or in vivo. Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) can be isolated from the inner cell mass of 5–8 days old embryos and possess high regenerative potential. However, the clinical use of ESCs is restricted due to a number of religious, ethical, and legal controversies. Adult stem cells can be isolated from neonatal sources (such as cord blood, cord tissue, placenta, and menstrual blood) as well as from adult tissues (such as bone marrow, adipose tissue, dental pulp, and peripheral blood) are used for these purposes.
