Sodium MRI gives new insights into detecting osteoarthritis, researchers find (8/31/2010)

Researchers at New York University have developed an innovative way to look at the development of osteoarthritis in the knee joint -- one that relies on the examination of sodium ions in cartilage. ...> Full Article


Research demonstrates benefits of medical cannabis as a treatment for chronic pain (8/31/2010)

Research demonstrates benefits of medical cannabis as a treatment for chronic painThe medicinal use of cannabis has been debated by clinicians, researchers, legislators and the public at large for many years as an alternative to standard pharmaceutical treatments for pain, which may not always be effective and may have unwanted side effects. A new study by the McGill University Health Centre and McGill University researchers provides evidence that cannabis may offer relief to patients suffering from chronic neuropathic pain. ...> Full Article


Supplement produces a 'striking' endurance boost (8/30/2010)

Research from the University of Exeter in the UK has revealed taking a dietary supplement to boost nitric oxide in the body can significantly boost stamina during high-intensity exercise. The study has important implications for athletes, as results suggest that taking the supplement can allow people to exercise up to 20 percent longer and could produce a 1-2 percent improvement in race times. ...> Full Article


Healthy ears hear the first sound, ignoring the echoes (8/27/2010)

Healthy ears hear the first sound, ignoring the echoesVoices carry, reflect off objects and create echoes. Most people rarely hear the echoes; instead they only process the first sound received. For the hard of hearing, though, being in an acoustically challenging room can be a problem. For them, echoes carry. ...> Full Article


New study: More than 20,000 sledding injuries each year (8/24/2010)

Although sledding is a popular winter pastime, it can unfortunately lead to serious injury. A new study conducted by the Center for Injury Research and Policy of the Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital found that from 1997-2007, an estimated 229,023 children and adolescents younger than 19 years were treated in US hospital emergency departments for sledding-related injuries -- an average of more than 20,000 cases each year. ...> Full Article


'Rotten eggs' gas and inflammation in arthritic joints (8/23/2010)

Hydrogen sulfide is a gas more commonly associated with the smell of "rotten eggs" and blocked drains. However, it has now been shown to be present naturally in our bodies and reside in knee joint synovial fluid, the protective fluid found in the cavities of joints that reduces friction between the cartilage of joints during movement. Synovial fluid H2S may play a role in reducing inflammation in joints. ...> Full Article


Gender bender: Do gender knee implants provide better outcomes? (8/20/2010)

A recent study in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery found that 85 women who received a gender-specific implant in one knee and a standard prosthesis in the other knee found no clinical benefits of the gender-specific knee. ...> Full Article


Sports brain trauma may cause disease mimicking ALS (8/19/2010)

The Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy at Boston University School of Medicine and Department of Veterans Affairs announced today that they have provided the first pathological evidence that repetitive head trauma experienced in collision sports is associated with motor neuron disease, a neurological condition that affects voluntary muscle movements. The most common form of motor neuron disease is amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig's disease. ...> Full Article

Tinnitus study looks for cure to 'ringing in the ears' (8/15/2010)

The NIH has granted a University of Texas at Dallas researcher and a university-affiliated biomedical firm $1.7 million to investigate whether nerve stimulation offers a long-term cure for tinnitus. Described as a ringing in the ears, tinnitus affects 20 percent to 40 percent of recently returned military veterans and about 10 percent of all people over 65 years old. The disorder causes mild irritation for some people but is disabling and painful for many others, said Dr. Michael Kilgard of UT Dallas. ...> Full Article

Lubricating the knee cartilage after ACL repair may prevent osteoarthritis (8/6/2010)

While ACL injuries can often be corrected through surgery, they can lead to increased risk of developing degenerative joint diseases, including osteoarthritis. The fluid in the knee joint, which lubricates the cartilage, is impacted by the trauma of the injury and begins to deteriorate. A new study from Rhode Island Hospital researchers identifies options for restoring that lubrication to potentially prevent development of OA. ...> Full Article


All-over tan is a myth, study finds (8/5/2010)

New national study examines US high school sports-related fractures (8/4/2010)

The popularity of high school sports in the United States has continued to increase over the past decade, with more than 7.5 million athletes participating in school sports during the 2008-09 academic year. A new study conducted by the Center for Injury Research and Policy of The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital found that 95 percent of fractures required costly diagnostic imaging, including x-rays, MRIs and CT scans, and 16 percent required surgical repair. ...> Full Article
