Jul 20th, 2017 - A headache is a more common disorder and one that prevails over a lifetime of much of the population. Among the causes are in the stress and spasms of the pericranial musculature, presence of painful sensitivity in the region, decrease of pain threshold, and a presence of trigger points (PGs) that can also cause as headaches. The solutions for health and health, in addition to Percutaneous Micr...
Jan 31st, 2012 - OVERVIEW Essential tremor (ET) is a common movement disorder affecting 0.4% of the general population and up to 14% of people 65 years and older. Response to medications such as beta blockers and primidone may be of benefit, but are often accompanied by intolerable side effects. Response to ethanol, on the other hand, has a roughly 80% chance of significant tremor reduction, though daily use of...

Jan 4th, 2018 - The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in conjunction with transcranial ultrasound (TUS) on pain perception and functional limitations in people with osteoarthritis of the knee. The investigators hypothesize that there will be a decrease in pain levels with active stimulation, when compared to sham stimulation.
The main research questions focus on whether the toolkit provides short-term benefits on symptoms associated with surgery (i.e., pain, anxiety, nausea) and whether it impacts emotional distress and other symptoms (i.e., pain, fatigue, sleep disturbance, global health, quality of life) at a two-week post-operative time point. This study will be conducted at San Antonio Military Medical Center (S...
Dec 23rd, 2015 - The protocol "Effect of Affective Content on Drug Induced Amnesia of Episodic Memory" investigates the relationship between the ability of affective ('emotional') content to modulate the formation of episodic memory, and the memory impairment ('amnestic') effects of several common intravenous anesthetic drugs. Because memory modulation by affective content appears to be a distinct memory proces...
Mar 4th, 2015 - To evaluate long-term efficacy and safety of pregabalin (150 to 600mg/day) as adjunctive treatment in patients with partial seizures.
Jan 2nd, 2013 - Laparoscopic adhesiolysis has been used in treatment of chronic abdominal pain. There has been only one previous controlled study, that stated laparoscopy alone had the same benefits than laparoscopic adhesiolysis. The aim of this study is to compare laparoscopic adhesiolysis with a placebo-procedure in chronic abdominal pain.
