Q: 

spinal cord injury, no mobility ó how can I lose weight?

A: Dear Reader, Many people, whether they are unable to exercise or just don`t like it, have wondered whether weight loss without physical activity is possible. Basically what weight loss comes down to is this: weight stays stable when we take in the same amount of calories that we expend. If we eat more energy than we use, we store it for later, i.e., we put on pounds. Some people accomplish weight loss by limiting caloric intake, others by upping their energy expenditure though exercise, and many people use a combination of both strategies to lose weight. One pound of body fat is equal to about 3500 calories. In order to lose a pound per week, a person would have to create a daily deficit of about 500 calories. Weight-loss of a pound per...

Q: 

what are the Pros and Cons of Stem Cell Research?

A: To understand the pros and cons of stem cell research, one must first understand where stem cells come from. There are three main sources for obtaining stem cells - adult cells, cord cells, and embryonic cells. Pros: Stem cells can be used to help treat severe diseases such as Parkinsonís, Alzheimerís and Multiple Sclerosis. Stem cells offer much hope for medical advancement because of their ability to grow into almost any kind of cell. For instance, neural cells in the brain and spinal cord that have been damaged can be replaced by stem cells. In the treatment of cancer, cells destroyed by radiation or chemotherapy...


Q: 

RSD and spinal cord Stimulator

A: First of all they should be giving you 1-2 blocks a week to try and put this into remission!! It seems to me you had a pretty good result from the one block. Saying, "get an scs now", seems way premature to me. The ones I''ve known who''ve gotten an scs were a few years into rsd and meds weren''t doing much to help the pain and blocks either didn''t work at all or only lasted a couple of hours after. An scs is tricky, IMO. I''ve seen many get it, over the past almost 6 years I''ve had rsd, and a lot of them, end up with complications and a lot of spreading. I don''t want to scare anyone but I firmly believe that "sugar coating" things or saying it might help isn''t helping at all. I believe...

The term cerebral palsy refers to any one of a number of neurological disorders that appear in infancy or early childhood and permanently affect body movement and muscle coordination but donít worsen over time. Even though cerebral palsy affects muscle movement, it isnít caused by problems in the muscles or nerves. It is caused by abnormalities in parts of the brain that control muscle movements. The majority of children with cerebral palsy are born with it, although it may not be detected until months or years later. The early signs of cerebral...


Q: 

what could be causing these painful spasms ?

A: Dear TJ, I"m not quite sure what was going on with you 7 years ago, but I can tell you for sure that the "whiplash" injury can greatly exacerbate any ongoing problems, and often times create significant long term consequences as well. The medical profession is almost useless when it comes to soft tissue injuries unless you have been seen by an Orthopedic sports physician or a Physiatrist.  If you aren"t bleeding, having a heart attack, or a broken bone, the ER is just going to tell you nothing is wrong, or it will go away on its...

Q: 

what does it mean of you have a body temperature of 91* F?

A: Hypothermia, a potentially fatal condition, occurs when body temperature falls below 95°F (35°C).Measured orally, a healthy person''s body temperature can fluctuate between 97°F (36.1°C) and100°F (37.8°C). Survival depends on maintaining temperature stability within this range by balancingthe heat produced by metabolism with the heat lost to the environment through (for the most part) the skin andlungs. When environmental or other changes cause heat loss to outpace heat production, the brain triggersphysiological and behavioral responses to restore the balance. The involuntary muscular activity of shivering,for example, aids heat production by accelerating metabolism. But if the cold stress is too great and thebody''s defenses
Q: 

what remedies for neck pains

A: An acute or chronic pain in the neck is a rather common occurrence and is known to affect two in every three individuals over the world at some point of time in their lives. Although the pain seems to be consigned to the neck, the condition can actually stem from a number of issues of the spinal cord. Some of the most common disorders that give rise to neck ache include whiplash, neck strain, a herniated disc or even a pinched nerve. The pain will often be accompanied by a dull ache that may increase in intensity depending on the amount of movement that is asked of the neck. Some of the other types of neck pain include tingling, numbness, tenderness and a sharp shooting pain. Some sufferers...
