Lower Back Pain A Worldwide Problem

Low back pain is the single biggest cause of years lived with disability worldwide.  It is therefore also a major challenge to international health systems. In 2018, the Lancet Low Back Pain Series Working Group identified a global problem of mismanagement of low back pain.

The group documented the phenomenon of unnecessary care whereby patients receive health services which are discordant with international guidelines.  There was strong evidence that this unnecessary care, including complex pain medications, spinal imaging tests, spinal injections, hospitalisation and surgical procedures, were hazardous for most patients with low back pain.  

At Restore we have always found that conservative management, lifestyle changes, improvement in strength and osteopathic care have a significant improvement in symptoms of lower back pain, and in the majority of patients will resolve it entirely.

Exciting New Research into Osteoporosis

Scientists at the University of Nottingham have been researching how to trigger new bone growth in people with osteoporosis using liquid bone tissue created from material containing stem cells. The technique could be used to target specifically weak and fragile bones in those who suffer from osteoporosis to help prevent fractures.
  A representative for the University of Nottingham’s team, Dr Ifty Ahmed said he and his team aimed to provide a preventative treatment for fractures associated with osteoporosis.  The experimental treatment is yet to be trialed on humans, but if successful would aim to find people at risk and strengthen their bones to avoid fractures from occurring. Previous attempts at regenerating weak bones in sufferers of osteoporosis have failed due to the fragile nature of the stem cells required to do the job.

What an amazing step forward in the fight against osteoporosis.
