The use of arthroscopic hip surgery for pain relief has increased dramatically in the past decade.

Exposure to Narrow Band of Green Light Improves Migraine Symptoms

Light sensitivity, or photophobia, is a frequent symptom of migraine headaches, which affect nearly 15 percent of the world’s population. A new study, led by researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and published today in Brain, has found that exposing migraine sufferers to a narrow band of green light significantly reduces photophobia and can reduce headache severity.

Minimally Invasive Tendon Repair Technique Supports Knee Movement Sooner after Surgery

Sherman_Seth.jpg

Quadriceps tendon ruptures are disabling knee injuries that typically occur in adults ages 40 and older. Obesity, illness or traumatic injuries can cause these types of injuries. Most tendon ruptures require surgery, and the current gold-standard technique for repairing these ruptures is transosseous (literally, through-the-bone) tunnel repair, a lengthy, technically demanding procedure. In a new study, University of Missouri researchers have found that suture anchors, a less-invasive repair technique, responded better to strength-testing after the surgery, supporting more movement in the knee earlier in the recovery process.

Evidence Shows Benefits of Psychological Care in Pain Management

Increasing practitioner skepticism about the long-term safety of opioid pain medications for treating chronic pain and compelling evidence showing the benefits of cognitive-based therapies are convincing more and more physicians to consider referring their pain patients for psychological care. In a symposium titled “Pain Psychology 101,” hosted by the American Pain Society (APS) www.americanpainsociety.org today at its annual scientific conference, leading pain psychologists presented compelling clinical evidence showing that cognitive therapies are safer and often more effective than opioids in fostering chronic pain relief.

Genetic Biomarker May Predict Nerve Pain Side Effects Associated with Prostate Cancer Treatment, Moffitt Researchers Say

Taxanes are a group of drugs commonly used to treat cancers of the breast, lung, ovary, or prostate, but its use can be limited by significant side effects. Researchers from Moffitt Cancer Center report prostate cancer patients who have a variation in the VAC14 gene are more susceptible to a side effect called peripheral neuropathy when treated with the taxane docetaxel.
