And Now for some news ….
Management of persistent coccydynia with transrectal manipulation
A recent study, published in the European Spine Journal, compared the results of manual therapy combined with steroid injection with single steroid injection in the treatment of persistent coccydynia.
Combined therapy was performed in 21 patients (Group 1) and steroid injection in 23 patients (Group 2).
Patients were classified according to the underlying cause, BMI, anatomic type of coccyx and duration of symptoms.
The study concluded that Manual therapy combined with steroid injection would be an alternative method in case of persistent coccydynia.
It is a safe and easy option before surgical treatment.
As always, discuss all forms of therapy with your Qualified Health Care Professional.

Chest Pain and Mental Stress Induced Myocardial Ischemia – Sex Differences
A recent study published in the American Journal of Medicine, looked at the connection between Chest Pain and Mental Stress Induced Ischemia and related sex differences.
Mental stress-induced myocardial ischemia (MSIMI) is a frequent phenomenon in patients with coronary artery disease.
Women with coronary artery disease tend to have more MSIMI and more chest pain/anginal symptoms than men, but whether the association between MSIMI and angina burden differs in women and men, is unknown.
The study concluded, that in women, but not in men, anginal symptoms may be a marker of vulnerability towards ischemia induced by psychological stress.
These results highlight the psychosocial origins of angina in women, and may have important implications for the management and prognosis of women with angina.
