    Chronic pain represents an immense clinical problem. With tens of millions of people in the United States alone suffering from the burden of debilitating chronic pain, there is a moral obligation to reduce this burden by improving the understanding of pain and treatment mechanisms, developing new therapies, optimizing and testing existing therapies, and improving access to evidence-based pain care. Here, we present a goal-oriented research agenda describing the American Pain Society's vision for pain research aimed at tackling the most pressing issues in the field.PerspectiveThis article…
  • Pain and itch neurons grown in a dish : Nature News

    29 Nov 2014 | 2:43 am
    Nerve cells that transmit pain, itch and other sensations to the brain have been made in the lab for the first time. Researchers say that the cells will be useful for developing new painkillers and anti-itch remedies, as well as understanding why some people experience unexplained extreme pain and itching."The short take-home message would be 'pain and itch in a dish', and we think that's very important," says Kristin Baldwin, a stem-cell scientist at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California, whose team converted mouse and human cells called fibroblasts into neurons that detect…

    Problem solving is actually just a series of small decisions. For example, if you’re working a complex math equation, you have to decide whether to divide or multiply first, and also which sets of numbers should be prioritized. Typically when tackling this kind of exercise, you’ll follow the rules set forth by the grand experimenters who came before you and sussed out the common truths that apply to all mathematics. But what do you do when faced with a problem you’ve never encountered before and for which there is no set of rules? What do you do when you’re creating…

    Confidence is one of those elusive things that everybody wants but no one can really define.  It’s not the absence of fear; numerous celebrities who occupy the public eye on a regular basis admit to unrelenting stage fright.  And I don’t think it’s believing in yourself more than everybody else believes in themselves.  We all have mean voices living between our ears.

    Did you know that Iceland is considered the heart chakra of the earth?  It’s interesting to ponder that we usually attribute warmth to the heart – love, affection, passion, fire – but the organ of our affection is also capable of its opposite, ice. I fell in love with the raw Icelandic countryside, acres of lava fields draped in the most downy moss you’ll ever caress and austere mountains rising sharply out of a treeless tundra snaked with rivers.  There is something untamed in this wild place where man and nature teeter on a delicate equilibrium for survival.

    2 Dec 2014 | 4:00 am
    As a professional fisherman and host of the NBC Sports’ TV show “Bass 2 Billfish with Peter Miller,” I have to be at the top of my game at all times. While the highlight of my days on the water is centered on reeling in a large fish, my job also requires a significant amount of physical labor. But more than that, I’m part of a team. I frequently lift objects that weigh a large amount and am continually pushing my body as hard as possible. Because of the strenuous nature of my job, I found myself with two herniated discs and a pinched nerve in my lower back. For a while, I convinced…

    As a professional golfer, I understand the importance of staying physically healthy—especially when it comes to your back. I also know that sometimes, your back just begins to ache for no apparent reason. That’s what happened to me, but Laser Spine Institute helped me find relief from my back pain. For a while, I dealt with the pain and muscled through it because I thought it would go away on its own. But over time, my back pain gradually worsened to the point that I felt like I couldn’t do anything without experiencing what felt like a strike of lightning running through my body. Not…

    One of my favorite things about golfing is the opportunity to connect with my fans. When I started having back pain at the age of 18, I never imagined that it would allow me to better identify with my fans. I understand how chronic neck or back pain can drastically derail your life. And if it wasn’t for Laser Spine Institute, there’s a good chance I would be retired and unable to golf today.   My back pain began shortly after I joined the Ladies Professional Golf Association. The pain got so bad in 2009 that I couldn’t complete the last of my events. In fact, I pulled out of the…

    2 Dec 2014 | 12:03 pm
    Even though winter officially begins December 21, it feels like it may have already arrived. We’ve had a good round of extreme cold, ice and a little snow. Combined, these are perfect conditions for a possible acute back pain or neck pain injury — a fall on the ice, a disc injury from shoveling, an exuberant winter athlete perhaps trying out the half-pipe for the first time. Besides the usual torn muscle or bone fracture, many Canadian adults can do serious damage to their backs: developing a bulging or herniated disc. This is exactly the kind of back pain condition we treat at Back…

Dangerous even. The public has learned a lot over the years, through various news channels, about the risks that come with taking these medications. Patients suffering with serious chronic low back pain or neck pain are likely to ask their doctors for prescription painkillers to help them manage.

  • 3 Tips For Preventing Back Pain Caused By Prolonged Sitting

    Dr. Ron Nusbaum
    2 Sep 2014 | 11:42 pm
    What happens to your spine when you sit for long periods? This infographic explains the different forces in motion and what you can do to prevent low back pain from sitting in your chair. Inner hip muscles, or iliopsoas connect the back to the legs. These muscles get tight when you sit all day, causing the abdomen to be bulled forward and downward, and causing pressure on the lower back. Unnatural pressure on the lower back can certainly lead to pain. Prolonged sitting can compress spinal structures like the discs and lead to their deterioration, and may also aggravate sciatica. 3 Simple Tips…
