Fit teens less apt to have chronic pain later on

PainFeb 15 06

Good flexibility in the teen years for boys can lower the risk of tension neck in adulthood, while good endurance strength may do the same for girls, Finnish researchers report.

Little is known about how physical fitness in adolescence contributes to the likelihood of common muscle and bone problems later on, such as lower back pain and knee injuries, Dr. Lasse O. Mikkelsson of the Pajulahti Sports Centre in Nastola and colleagues note.

“As our body weight increases, more load and stress are put on the feet,” foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Sean Wilson of Aspen Ortho & Rehab Specialists in West Allis, Wisconsin, and ACFAS spokesman, told Reuters Health.

Extra Nerve Fibers May Heighten Female Pain Perception

PainOct 27 05

Women appear to have a greater density of nerve receptors than men, suggesting that they are constitutionally more sensitive to pain, researches here reported.

Women averaged double the number of receptors compared with men in a certain area of facial skin, according to a study conducted by Bradon J. Wilhelmi, M.D., and colleagues at the Plastic Surgery Institute of the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine.

Low-Dose Radiation Numbs Lengthy Post-Shingles Pain

PainOct 21 05

Low-dose radiation could help relieve long-lasting post-herpetic neuralgia that often trails a painful herpes zoster outbreak, Swiss researchers reported.

“We think that radiation is at least as good as antiviral drugs in preventing post-herpetic neuralgia,” said Mohammed Suleiman, M.D., a radiation oncologist at Hospital of Sion in Switzerland. “This treatment,” he said, “could be an alternative for people who can’t take antiviral medications,” such as Zovirax (acyclovir) and Valtrex (valacyclovir).

Magnetized insoles don’t appear to relieve foot pain

PainSep 22 05

Magnetized insoles have no greater pain-easing effect than similar insoles that don’t contain magnets, according to a new study.

Some study participants did report pain relief, regardless of which type of insoles they were wearing, and the effect tended to be particularly strong among patients who said they believed that magnets could ease pain.

Bone strength may play a role in ‘growing pains’

PainAug 11 05

Weaker-than-average bones may contribute to the “growing pains” some children experience in their legs, a small study suggests.

Israeli researchers found that some children who complained of such aches had less dense shinbones compared with the norm for their age. The finding, according to the study authors, suggests that relatively weaker bones may make some kids more vulnerable to pain from exercise.

That does not mean, however, that parents should stop their children from being active; the reduced bone strength seen in some children, say the researchers, is probably innocuous. Moreover, exercise helps build bone during childhood.

Pelvic inflammatory disease linked to pelvic pain

PainJun 16 05

Researchers have identified a range of factors that increase the risk of developing chronic pelvic pain from pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which results from vaginal infection, often sexually transmitted, that ascends into the pelvis.

“Recurrent PID repeatedly damages the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries, increasing the likelihood of chronic pelvic pain and infertility,” warned the team leader Dr. Catherine L. Haggerty.

Cough suppressant may ease fibromyalgia pain

PainJun 06 05

A medication normally used to quiet a stubborn cough may also help ease the chronic pain of fibromyalgia, a small study suggests.

Researchers found that the cough suppressant, dextromethorphan, temporarily diminished pain perception in both fibromyalgia patients and healthy adults. The benefit appears to stem from the fact that dextromethorphan blocks the action of a chemical messenger known as NMDA, which helps relay pain signals to the brain.
