RELIEF FOR ARTHRITIS SUFFERERS WITH NECK AND BACK PAIN Millions of people suffer with arthritic low back and neck pain. Patients who have long-standing osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis often develop painful neck joints and low back pain. Often the pain is located off to one side of the back or neck. It is usually worse with turning the head to one side or the other, or with leaning backwards. A newer treatment called Radiofrequency Neurolysis offers hope for such patients. Radiofrequency Neurolysis, or heat lesioning has been utilized for many years. It has recently gained popularity for treating joint pain. Radiofrequency denervation entails precision lesions placed directly on the nerve going from the painful joint. To assure proper location, the nerve is localized precisely with a nerve stimulator. Radiofrequency energy is then used to heat the area in a controlled method to the proper temperature. Radiofrequency heat lesions can knock out the painful nerve pathway from the joint, reducing pain sensations from the joint. "It is like short-circuiting the pain," explains Dr. Jonathan Daitch of Advanced Pain Management Specialists. "Even pain that has been present for many years can respond to this treatment."

It feels like an ache or burn from the lower back or buttock down the leg, often to the foot and toes. One of the first and most conservative steps in the course of treatment for radiating pain is the use of epidural steroid injections at any level of the spine. The goal of the epidural steroid injection is to decrease inflammation at the nerve root level, and therefore, reduce the radiating or radicular pain associated with the nerve root irritation. Epidural steroid injections can be performed at the cervical, thoracic, lumbar and even sacral region of the spine. Although, there are various techniques to inject the medicine into the affected area, these can essentially be broken down into the traditional mid-line translaminar approach and the transforaminal approach. The translaminar approach places the medicine inside the epidural space with the goal of having the medicine spread out toward the nerve roots themselves. The transforaminal steroid injection involves placing the medicine from the outside of the epidural space, with the goal of it tracking into the epidural space at specific levels.

If the bulging disk is intact, conservative care, including rest, specificstretches and chiropractic adjustments, will be the treatment of choice.
Letter From the Editor Celebrity Muscle Fitness Cafe Exercise Science ... About
About the Author: Dr. Stephen L. Goldman has been practicing chiropractic in California for almost twenty years. He is currently in practice at Fitness Forum in Marina del Rey,California - a state of the art fitness and rehabilitation center. In addition, Dr. Goldman is on the faculty of Masters of Motion, a state recognized training program for personal trainers and aerobics instructors. He received his Bachelors of Science degree from the University of Massachusetts and his Doctorate of Chiropractic at Cleveland Chiropractic College, where he served on the faculty from 1980-84. "I have been training with weights for twenty years and for the first time I recently developed a rotator cuff problem. The rotator cuff has always been sort of a mystery to me because it's not a major muscle. In fact, as I began to research my injury I started to realize why it is so important to have strong, healthy rotator cuffs - and more importantly how to prevent future rotator cuff problems from occuring. Since most people only learn about rotator cuffs due to personal injury, it's important to pay attention to the following article by Dr. Goldman ... it will save you a great deal of future pain and aggravation."

A bulging disk encroaches on the ventral spinal canal and inferior portionsof the neuroforamina but does not displace the nerve roots.
Disk Degeneration One of the earliest signs of disk degeneration is loss of water content or desiccation, most noticeable in the nucleus pulposus. MR can detect early disk degeneration because, as the disks lose water, the MR signal decreases on gradient-echo and T2-weighted images. With more advanced degeneration, the disk collapses and gas may form within the disk. Calcification is not uncommon in chronic degenerative disk disease. As a consequence of intervertebral disk degeneration, normal axial loading on the spine stretches and lengthens the anular fibers, resulting in rounded, symmetric bulging of the disk beyond the margins of the vertebral body. A bulging disk encroaches on the ventral spinal canal and inferior portions of the neuroforamina but does not displace the nerve roots. The combination of sagittal and axial views provides excellent visualization of the relationships of the disk to the spinal canal and neural foramina. When there is a generalized paucity of epidural fat, producing an MR "myelogram" with gradient-echo or T2-weighted images is helpful to show the relationship of the disk with the thecal sac.

The Cowboy Way
November 24, 1995
Went hiking with Henry today. A day trip to Weaver's Needle in the Superstition Mountains. Weaver's Needle is visible from the Lost Dutchman gold mine... or so the legend goes. We saw a couple cowboys on the trail. We knew they were cowboys because they had on blue jeans, button up denim shirts, cowboy hats, and cowboy boots. I think they would have had an easier time with the 1,500 foot climb if they had not worn 45's in heavy leather holsters. Yeeee! Haaaaa! I hope to do a few more hikes before I head back home.

Too much ice-tea... ... is why I write this stuff so late at night. Went hiking with my sister, her husband, and their two dogs today. The hike was in South Mountain park into Hidden Valley and through Fat Man's Pass. Long ago a huge bolder fell across the trail and split in half. The 20 foot long crack is about a foot wide; just big enough for a normal size person to squeeze through. Hence the name. ( Perhaps "Fat Men Don't Pass" would be a better name. ) One of the two dogs is normal, the other is a poofy-dog. I told my sister that the hike would be hard for the poofy-dog, but she wouldn't hear any of that. "Today is her birthday! How can we leave her behind on her birthday?!" ( Poofy-dog was 6 that day. That's 42 in dog years. ) Needless to say, the poofy-dog needed to be carried up the hills.

Hi Beth, I'm hoping you wouldn't mind answering a hopefully brief call for help. I'm 28 years old and have had on-and-off lower back problems for the last year. I've been to physical therapy and chiropractor but the pain always returns. I have almost-2-year-old twins which seem to have coincided with the back pain. Lifting and carrying them hasn't gotten any easier as their size increases. My only relief from the depressing pain is a good surf. Anyhow, my dad has also experienced chronic lower back pain and suffers from a couple bad lumbar disks. I am no small guy at 6'3" and 280 pounds, but am very active and have played sports my entire life (football, wrestling, soccer and now surfing).

    I MUST admit that I have had better weeks than the last seven days. On Monday I sustained a blow to my back going into contact during training for England A resulting in one prolapsed disk and one bulging disk in my spine. This could not have come at a worse time for the club. We are already struggling, with a massive injury list that includes the likes of Mike Catt, Andy Williams, Gareth Cooper and Joe El Abd. My injury means that we will be without any fly half cover for Ollie Barkley so it is a case of praying that he does not get injured over the next few weeks. Recent newspaper reports have suggested that I will be out of action for the rest of the season.

    A Stanford 2002-03 preview, by Sakibomb25
    Here is a breakdown on the positions: Point Guard Looking to spell King will be frosh Clare Bodensteiner. A point guard out of Idaho, she is hailed as one of the dark horse recruits of the freshmen class, as she has slipped under the recruiting radars. VanDerveer has produced some great point guards over the years (Jennifer Azzi, Sonja Henning, Jamilia Wideman, and Milena Flores come to mind) and Bodensteiner has come to the right place to learn from the best. Bodensteiner has great leadership skills and as many have noticed, can take over a game and score at will. She is also an athletic player who plays good defense. Her excellent shooting skills will help add instant offense around the perimeter. If injuries or foul trouble occur, both sophomore Kelley Suminski and junior Nicole Powell have the ability to bail out the Cardinal and run an offense. Despite playing out of their positions, these two have made the best of the situation and helped the Cardinal succeed. There should be no doubt that if Suminski or Powell have to take over the point, the Cardinal are in good hands. Shooting Guard Sophomore Kelley Suminski will return to her natural position this year as her services as a point guard will no longer be needed with the return of King. Suminski was one of the best shooters in the Pac-10 last year, hitting 43.8% behind the three-point line. She also managed to snag a spot on the All Pac-10 Frosh Team (along with post T'Nae Thiel). She is a tough player that can hit a shot when the pressure is on. Although her speed and defense is suspect, she is a solid contributor for the Cardinal, both for her scoring abilities and her warrior mentality.

    Herniated or bulging disks
    Disk injury is a very extensive and complicated classification of soft tissue injury. Simply put, there are three levels of increasing severity. Grade One is called bulging disk, Grade Two is called ruptured disk, and Grade Three is called herniated disk. The grade can be determined by the severity of the symptoms and by a CT or MRI scan. If found to be positive, a neuro-surgical consultation should be made immediately. These are serious injuries that could have a long range effect on your life. Immediate proper evaluation, treatment, and documentation of these serious injuries could be crucial to a successful settlement outcome, which will generally take all elements of your past, present and future medical, emotional, and financial needs into account. For more information on herniated or bulging disks, consult with a personal injury attorney.
