An experimental formulation of a hydrogel, injected into spinal discs, proved safe and effective in substantially relieving chronic low back pain caused by degenerative disc disease (DDD), according to new research to be presented at the Society of Interventional Radiology Annual Scientific Meeting, in Boston.
Results of the study, published in The Spine Journal, the journal World Neurosurgery and Asian Spine Journal showed that the cage-screw and anterior plating combination model has promising potential to reduce the risk of micro motion and subsidence of implanted cages in two or more level ACDFs.
A good sleeping position along with a good quality of sleep throughout the night relaxes the spine and muscles. Sleep is needed not just for relaxation but also for mental and physical recovery.
The effects of orthobiologics in the treatment of tendon pathologies: a systematic review of preclinical evidence
The aim of this systematic review is to explore the current available knowledge about tendon disorders and orthobiologics derived by preclinical experiments to evaluate their role and efficacy in the different stages and conditions related to the tendon healing processes.
Next month, a SpaceX rocket is set to carry an unusual payload to the International Space Station: a sample of stem cells to be cultivated as part of a Cedars-Sinai Medical Center research project to see if the cells can grow more rapidly and achieve better quality in space.
Researchers at the Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation (TIBI) have turned to a silk protein, silk fibroin (SF), produced by the Bombyx mori silkworm as a biomaterial for tendon repair. The researchers report their method has yielded significant improvements in mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) tendon regeneration.
Lower right back pain can be due to a sprain, infection, cancer, pregnancy, and much more. To get proper treatment you need the right diagnosis so track any other symptoms you're having.

PLASMA injections are becoming increasingly popular for those suffering from injury or other minor issues.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) using a digital centrifuge with large sodium citrate tubes on a centrifuge speed of 900 rpm has demonstrated efficacy and safety in female pattern hair loss (FPHL) therapy, according to study findings published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology.
