And Now for some news ….

 

 

 

Aerobic Exercise and the Brain

A recent study, published in the Journal of Physiology, looked at the relationship between Exercise and the Brain.

Aerobic exercise, such as running, has positive effects on brain structure and function, for example, adult hippocampal neurogenesis (AHN) and learning.

Whether high-intensity interval training (HIT), referring to alternating short bouts of very intense anaerobic exercise with recovery periods, or anaerobic resistance training (RT) has similar effects on AHN is unclear.

In addition, individual genetic variation in the overall response to physical exercise likely plays a part in the effects of exercise on adult hippocampal neurogenesis but is less studied.

The results of the study suggest physical exercise promotes AHN most if it is aerobic and sustained, and especially when accompanied by a heightened genetic predisposition for response to physical exercise.

As always, discuss all Exercise related activities with your Qualified Healthcare Provider.

Sugar Consumption and the Stress Response

A recent study published in Frontiers of Molecular Neuroscience, looked at the relationship between Sugar Consumption and the Stress Response.

Adverse early life experience is a known risk factor for psychiatric disorders. It is also known that stress influences food preference.

The authors of the study were interested in exploring whether the choice of diet following early life stress exerts long-lasting molecular changes in the brain, particularly the hippocampus, a region critically involved in stress regulation and behavioral outcomes.

In summary, early life stress and post-weaning sugar intake produced long-term effects on hippocampal glucocorticoid receptor and neurogenic differentiation 1 expression. Moreover the Authors found no evidence of altered promoter DNA methylation.

The authors demonstrate for the first time that chronic sucrose consumption alone produces similar detrimental effects on the expression of hippocampal genes as LN exposure.

As always, discuss all Nutritional recommendations with your Qualified Health Care Provider.

And Now for some news ….

 

 

Fat Infiltration of Paraspinal Muscles and LBP

Low back pain and disability are major public health problems and may be related to paraspinal muscle abnormalities, such as a reduction in muscle size and muscle fat content.

The aim of a study published in The Spine Journal, was to examine the associations between paraspinal muscle size and fat content with lumbar spine symptoms and structure.

This was a community-based magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) cohort study.

The study concluded that paraspinal fat infiltration, but not muscle cross sectional area, was associated with high-intensity pain/disability and structural abnormalities in the lumbar spine.

Although cause and effect cannot be determined from this cross-sectional study, longitudinal data will help to determine whether disabling low back pain and structural abnormalities of the spine are a cause or result of fat replacement of paraspinal muscles.

Multifidus Muscle Changes After Back Injury

A study was published in the journal Spine to investigate putative cellular mechanisms to explain structural changes in muscle and adipose and connective tissues of the back muscles after intervertebral disc (IVD) injury.

Structural back muscle changes are ubiquitous with back pain/injury and considered relevant for outcome, but their exact nature, time course, and cellular mechanisms remain elusive.

The authors of the study used an animal model that produces phenotypic back muscle changes after IVD injury to study these issues at the cellular/molecular level.

The study concluded that this study provides cellular evidence that refutes the presence of multifidus muscle atrophy accompanying IVD degeneration at this intermediate time point.

Instead, adipose/connective tissue increased in parallel with the expression of the genes that provide putative mechanisms for multifidus structural remodeling. This provides novel targets for pharmacological and physical interventions.

And Now for some news ….

 

 

NSAIDs and Neck Pain

A study was published in the European Spine Journal to evaluate the effectiveness of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for the management of neck pain and associated disorders (NAD), whiplash-associated disorders, and non-specific low back pain (LBP) with or without radiculopathy.

The authors of the study systematically searched six databases from 2000 to 2014. Random pairs of independent reviewers critically appraised eligible systematic reviews using the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network criteria.

The authors included systematic reviews with a low risk of bias in our best evidence synthesis.

The study concluded that for neck pain and associated disorders, oral NSAIDs may be more effective than placebo. Oral NSAIDs are more effective than placebo for persistent LBP, but not for recent-onset LBP.

Different oral NSAIDs lead to similar outcomes for neck pain and LBP.

Gender Differences in Spine Surgery

Previous studies have shown gender differences in preoperative status and outcome of spine surgery.

A study was published in the European Spine Journal to explores whether gender differences in preoperative demographics exist in patients scheduled for lumbar disc herniation (LDH) surgery.

The study concluded that women scheduled for LDH surgery report inferior clinical status than men scheduled for the same operation.

The authors of the study have in the literature found no evidence-based data that support such a difference, and the reason for the discrepancy is unclear.
