LOS ANGELES, July 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –S.M. Rezaian, MD, FRCS, FICS, PhD has treated well over 13,000 patients throughout his illustrious career in orthopedic medicine. He’s truly been an innovator in the field, creating the Rezaian Spinal Fixator and applying minimally-invasive laser back surgery both of which allow for more comprehensive and less risky surgical treatments. Through this experience in spinal stenosis treatment , repairing failed back surgery, and more, Dr. Rezaian is aware that misconceptions about back pain continue to cause complications. From inefficient back injury treatment methods that don’t address the root cause to long legal battles to get insurance agencies to cover new issues developing later in life from initial accidents, this ignorance about orthopedics has real world repercussions for those currently suffering from debilitating lower back pain. The most common issue discovered by Dr. Rezaian involves the degradation of the spine following inadequate treatment. Often, the problem is not solved properly; for example, a back brace for proper healing or even minor surgery may be required in cases where the doctor simply treats the patient through pain medication until the constant pain goes away.

New Immune System Clue to Low Back Pain
He calls it “a new twist to an old story.” It’s already known that IL-17 contributes to the chronic inflammation seen in psoriasis vulgaris, the bone resorption problem in rheumatoid arthritis and gum disease , and in the intestinal disorder Crohn’s disease , Oegema writes in the editorial. The new research, he tells WebMD, supplies evidence of IL-17 cell involvement in early disc degeneration, not simply in herniation. In time, he says, researchers may develop methods, possibly with targeted drugs, to stall the degeneration of discs that can occur with age by blocking IL-17 in that area. SOURCES: William J.

Yoga For Back Pain: Researchers Find No Benefit Difference Between Once-Weekly And Twice-Weekly Classes
Researchers found at the end of the 12-week period that all the participants had lower reported pain levels, as well as less need to take pain medications. And surprisingly, they did not find differences in both measures between those who took the yoga class once a week and those who took it twice a week. However, researchers did note some possible reasons for why the once-weekly group seemed to do just as well as the twice-weekly group: “Participants in the twice-weekly group were less likely than once-weekly participants to be adherent. Secondly, home practice in both groups was similar,” main page they wrote. Plus, researchers found that both of the groups seemed to reach their max benefit after six weeks. “Our study suggests that low income minority populations will accept and be satisfied with a yoga program, at least in the context of a clinical trial that offers financial compensation and free yoga classes,” the researchers wrote in the study . “The cost of individual community yoga classes, typically ranging $15$20, may be prohibitive for these populations. Structured yoga programs for chronic low back pain need to be implemented in community and healthcare settings and evaluated to ascertain their feasibility and acceptance.” Loading Slideshow Doctors Mindfulness meditation could help doctors provide better care to their patients, University of Rochester Medical Center researchers found. When doctors underwent mindfulness meditation training, they listened better and were less judgmental at home and at work, according to the Academic Medicine study.
