Back Packs and Back Pain
The amount of weight carried by children in their backpacks deserves serious consideration. Loading the spine risks low back pain not only in adults but in children; the load that children commonly carry is their school backpack. To quantify how much weight children likely carry in their backpacks, researchers from Milan, Italy ascertained the weight of backpacks used by sixth graders at several schools.


Car Accident, Neck & Back Pain Years Later
With current legislation mandating the use of seat belts, an increased number of neck and back injuries have been reported when seat belts are used. While these injuries may be less significant than in unrestricted accidents, health care providers must address these potentially lifelong problems and not dismiss them as merely "Whiplash". Many cases of tension headache and Cervical Migraine may be the result of a neck injury that may have been forgotten or simply dismissed as trivial by the patient-according to a study published in Spine. In the article, Dr. MacNab reviewed 266 cases and found at least 45% continued to have symptoms 2 years following the settlement of court actions. Most people that are involved in "minor" rear-end collisions do not realize the potential for injury to the spine. If pain does not immediately ensue, the incident may be forgotten.


BURSITIS-There is Hope and Help
Bursitis is an inflammation of a bursa. A bursa is a sac or saclike cavity filled with fluid and situated at places in the tissues where friction would otherwise develop. The fluid acts as a lubricant to tendons where they pass over a bony prominence.


Just Thinking About Headaches is Depressing
Talk about a downward spiral! Most people would agree that being in pain is upsetting. One type of pain, in particular, creates a mental felling of helplessness. That pain is headache pain. It's terribly difficult to determine which comes first, the headache or the distress. What's certain is, once the headache starts, the distress is sure to follow. This added stress frequently increases the pain that increases the stress, thus creating a vicious downward spiral, when your head hurts, it's hard just to think straight. Headaches that are frequent or last for days, sometimes with no relief, easily cause depression.
