Prepare a gel-filled injection against chronic back pain
Oklahoma City: Researchers have developed a gel that can be injected into the lumbar spinal discs to help relieve lower back pain.
Scientists at Clinical Radiology in the US state of Oklahoma said that the treatment reduced pain in 20 people between the ages of 20 and 69, after which the treatment was expected to relieve the discomfort. These people were suffering from disc herniation.
It is estimated that approximately 65 million people in the United States suffer from back pain each year, with the aforementioned disease being the leading cause.
Currently the focus is on traditional treatments for this ailment, including relaxation, physical therapy, and ligaments.
In order to relieve the pain at this time, the treatment that is given from the jail has to be done by putting surgery on the jail which can be removed from its place. In contrast, this new treatment requires only one injection.
The researchers said they selected 20 people from Colombia to study chronic pain in the lower back. All of them used traditional methods to relieve pain but found temporary relief.
This special gel was later inserted directly into his lower back discs as a trial. It was heated to 65 degrees Celsius before being gel. The gel later cooled to body temperature and became an implant to support the discs in that area.
Scientists say that this gel made of plastic cools down quickly and so far no damage has been seen on the surrounding tissues.
The researchers said that before the release of the prison, it was necessary to wait for the results of the trial in the United States and Canada.
