    Jordan Rapp
    SpiderTech Tape is credited with helping 2-time Ironman winner, Jordan Rapp, compete again after a life-threatening biking accident. As Rapp prepared for the 2010 Ironman season, his life suddenly changed on March 23 of that year when he was struck by a car while training on his bicycle. Rapp suffered numerous broken bones including his clavicle and scapula, as well...
  3. New advances in musculoskeletal pain

    Bove SE, Flatters SJ, Inglis JJ, Mantyh PW. New advances in musculoskeletal pain. Brain Res Rev. 2009 Apr;60(1):187-201. Non-malignant musculoskeletal pain is the most common clinical symptom that causes patients to seek medical attention and is a major cause of disability in the world. Musculoskeletal pain can arise from a variety of common conditions including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, surgery...
  4. Towards a theory of chronic pain

    Apkarian AV, Baliki MN, Geha PY. Towards a theory of chronic pain. Prog Neurobiol. 2009 Feb;87(2):81-97. In this review, we integrate recent human and animal studies from the viewpoint of chronic pain. First, we briefly review the impact of chronic pain on society and address current pitfalls of its definition and clinical management. Second, we examine pain mechanisms via nociceptive...
  5. Clinical efficacy of kinesiology taping in reducing edema of the lower limbs in patients treated with the ilizarov method--preliminary report

    Białoszewski D, Woźniak W, Zarek S. Clinical efficacy of kinesiology taping in reducing edema of the lower limbs in patients treated with the ilizarov method--preliminary report. Ortop Traumatol Rehabil. 2009 Jan-Feb;11(1):46-54. INTRODUCTION: Postoperative edema of predominantly lymphatic origin is a significant hindrance to physiotherapy in patients subjected to limb lengthening by the Ilizarov method. New treatment methods are being sought...
  6. Pain perception in relation to emotional learning

    Apkarian AV. Pain perception in relation to emotional learning. Curr Opin Neurobiol. 2008 Aug;18(4):464-8. Noninvasive brain imaging has established the participation of the cortex in pain perception and identified a long list of brain structures involved. More recent studies show the interaction between clinical chronic pain conditions and the reorganization of the brain functionally, anatomically, and chemically. Mechanisms underlying this...
  7. Muscle pain: sensory implications and interaction with motor control

    Arendt-Nielsen L, Graven-Nielsen T. Muscle pain: sensory implications and interaction with motor control. Clin J Pain. 2008 May;24(4):291-8. Muscle hyperalgesia and referred pain plays an important role in chronic musculoskeletal pain. New knowledge on the involved basic mechanisms and better methods to assess muscle pain in the clinic are needed to revise and optimize the treatment regimes. Increased muscle sensitivity...
  8. Activating muscle stem cells: therapeutic potential in muscle diseases

    Boldrin L, Morgan JE. Activating muscle stem cells: therapeutic potential in muscle diseases. Curr Opin Neurol. 2007 Oct;20(5):577-82. PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The satellite cell is the principal muscle stem cell. Recent research, however, has highlighted new stem cell sources that, once activated in the muscle tissue, can participate in muscle regeneration. This article reviews the state of research on stem...
  9. Imaging pain modulation in health and disease

    Bingel U, Schoell E, Büchel C. Imaging pain modulation in health and disease. Curr Opin Neurol. 2007 Aug;20(4):424-31. PURPOSE OF REVIEW: In this review, we discuss recent advances in pain imaging research. We focus on the involvement of endogenous pain control mechanisms in the healthy central nervous system and the potential contribution of failure within this system for chronic pain...
  10. Central sensitization in fibromyalgia and other musculoskeletal disorders

    Arendt-Nielsen L, Graven-Nielsen T. Central sensitization in fibromyalgia and other musculoskeletal disorders. Curr Pain Headache Rep. 2003 Oct;7(5):355-61. Muscle hyperalgesia and referred pain play an important role in chronic musculoskeletal pain. New knowledge on the involved basic mechanisms and better methods to assess muscle pain in the clinic are needed to revise and optimize treatment regimens. Increased muscle sensitivity is...
