Pain Management Los Angeles: Myofascial Pain Syndrome Common Among Neck Pain Sufferers.
Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) is a regional pain syndrome described as myofascial trigger points in skeletal muscle that can refer pain to nearby regions. A recent study discovered the presence of MPS in a group 224 patients with chronic non-specific neck pain. The investigators found the most common location for myofascial trigger points among participants was in the trapezius muscles, followed by the levator scapulae, multifidii, and splenius cervicis muscles in the neck region. Based on the findings, MPS should be considered a common source of pain among individuals presenting chronic non-specific neck pain. Neuromuscular Massage Therapy care includes myofascial release techniques of many varieties in addition to trigger point therapy and other modalities that reduce the pain and disability associated with MPS.

Mental Attitude: Work Ethic Remains Unchanged.
Contrary to popular belief, baby boomers don’t have a stronger work ethic than their children or grandchildren. Using 105 different measures, including hours worked and commitment to family and work, investigators found no significant difference in work ethic between baby boomers (born between 1946 and 1964), generation X (1965 to 1980), and millennials (1981 to 1999). The findings suggest that human resource departments should not worry about the work ethic of younger employees.

Health Alert: High Blood Pressure May Elevate Dementia Risk.
The American Heart Association (AHA) warns that high blood pressure (hypertension)—especially during middle age—may open the door to dementia. While the precise mechanism is not yet known, researchers speculate that hypertension damages blood vessels in the brain, impairing its ability to control blood flow, which is essential for normal brain function. Researcher Dr. Costantino Iadecola comments, “People with high blood pressure tend to have more dementia… Although scientifically we don’t have evidence, treating blood pressure is going to be important. It not only saves the brain, but also the heart and the kidney. So in the absence of evidence, the best thing to do is to control blood pressure.”

Exercise: Can Minimalist Shoes Be Good for Your Feet?
Running in a minimalist shoe may be good for increasing foot strength. Researchers compared the effects of wearing traditional running shoes to a minimalist shoe with five separate toes and minimal to no cushioning or support. After a six-month running program, those wearing the minimalist shoes experienced an increase in mean volume of the forefoot and rearfoot of 11.9% and 6.6%, respectively, while those wearing traditional running shoes experienced no such gains. The findings suggest that transitioning to this type of shoe may help strengthen the muscular components of the foot core system, indicating its potential application in a rehabilitation program for injured and weak foot muscles.
