INTRODUCTION: Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) is an ossification of the vertebral body's anterior and lateral side (1,2). This is a rare entity and also known as Forestier’s disease, rarely associated with systemic diseases such as diabetes mellitus and obesity and occurs mostly in the fifth and sixth decade of life and in males (3). The osteophytes are usually seen in the thoracic, lumbar and cervical vertebrae (97%, 90%, 78%) (4). Most of patients are asymptomatic, dysphagia is the most common symptom due to compression of esophageus by anterior osteophytes at the level of C4-5. Cervical subaxial pain, stiffness and decreasing range of motion of the cervical spine are the other complains (5).
My contact information was provided. IMPRESSIONS Ms. Tocco had a recent cervical fusion in the healing phase just prior to the accident. This has impacted her recovery. She also reported having prior anxiety issues which have increased since the auto accident. The Official Disability Guidelines for Fractured ribs are 28 to 45 days, for a fractured clavicle is 38 to 53 days, for a pneumothorax is 27 to 55 days, for a cervical fusion is 76 to 140 days, low back pain with radiculopathy is 16 to 31 days, for TMJ is 10 to 24 days and for vertigo is 14 to 87 days.
The vast majority of patients with ALS have no prior family history of the disease. Around 75% of individuals develop limb-onset ALS, with initial involvement occurs in the upper and lower extremities. The other 25% develop bulbar-onset ALS, with initial involvement occurring in the bulbar muscles. The bulbar muscles are considered to be the muscles of the mouth and throat that are responsible for speech and swallowing. Bulbar-onset ALS is more common in middle-aged women with the prevalent beginning stage symptoms being difficulty swallowing, chewing and
Finding Relief From Back Pain With The Aid of Reflexology Back pain can be classified as anything from tenderness to discomfort and actual pain that occurs in the spinal area. However, everyone can agree that because the spinal cord is so sensitive it is very unwelcome to experience any sort of pain or discomfort related to it. Back pain is also very common, with up to eight out of ten people experiencing some form of it during their lifetime. Women are also more susceptible to this condition compared to men. Regardless of the cause of the back pain and whether it is acute or chronic the desired outcome of any treatment is obviously to find relief.
RARE PEDIATRIC DISEASE DESIGNATION FOR THE POTENTIAL TREATMENT OF DUCHENNE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a serious and rare genetic disorder characterized by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness, primarily affecting boys. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 15 out of every 100,000 males, aged between 5 and 24 years are affected. Symptoms usually start appearing in early childhood between 3 and 5 years of age. Gradually, the disease progresses with the weakening of skeletal or voluntary muscles in the arms, legs, and trunk. Due to this progressive muscle weakness, often the patients become bound to the wheelchair at an early age.
Pain and pain on pressing were elevated, as were limited jaw movement and the bite feeling off. No clicking and popping were found during the clinical exam, suggesting that jaw functioning was not impaired, and this was confirmed by the TMJ Scale. The Non-TMJ scale was also elevated, reflecting the tension headaches. X-rays found no evidence of bony abnormalities. The patient reported significant emotional problems, and borderline stress, probably reflecting the result of eight months of searching for a solution for her pain problems.
Pre-eclampsia is one of the most common cause of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. It affects around 5-8% of all pregnancies. When superimposed with convulsions it is termed as eclampsia. Other high-risk factors are multiple pregnancy, hydramnios, and molar pregnancy. It is estimated that around 1400 women dye from pregnancy-related causes
SECTION 1 Osteoporosis is a condition of fragile bones that occurs when the body loses too much bone or makes too little bone. Bone may breaks from a fall or in some serious cases, from sneezing and minor bumps. According to the 1993 Consensus Development Conference, osteoporosis was defined as a disease characterized by low bone mass and structural deterioration to fractures (Anonymous, 1993). Based on statistic given by International Osteoporosis Foundation, in the worldwide stage, osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures annually, resulting in an osteoporotic fracture every 3 seconds. 200 million women worldwide are estimated to have osteoporosis where 1 in 3 women over age 50 will experience osteoporotic fractures.
The average age of former patients was 39,3 ± 14,7 years, and the average age of new patients was 41,02 ± 17,6 years. 41% of former patients was female and 59% of them was male, and 37% of new patients was female and 63% of them was male. 83% of former patients was paraplegic and 17% of them was tetraplegic, and 76% of new patients was paraplegic and 24% of them was tetraplegic, were detected respectively. The most common etiological factors in former patients were found to be 34% falls from a height, 25% traffic accidents, 14% gunshot wounds, 6% iatrogenic factors, and the most common etiological factors for new patients were determined as 31% falls from a height, 17% traffic accidents, 11% gunshot wounds, 12% iatrogenic factors. 51% of former patients was admitted to the first time in rehabilitation, and this rate was 46% in new patients.
