Dysmenorrhea, also known as painful periods, is a common gynecological condition that affects up to 70% of menstruating women. About 15% of individuals with the condition report that it significantly interferes with their activities of daily living (ADLs) and in some cases, results in absence from school and/or work. Studies have found that dysmenorrhea is related to early menarche (the onset of menstruation), nulliparity (not having children), and stress.

According to the Vestibular Disorders Association, there is a classification of dizziness called "cervicogenic dizziness", or dizziness resulting from neck pain. Published reports have linked the influence of head position on equilibrium as far back as the mid-1800s, but it wasn't until 1955 when researchers coined the term "cervical vertigo" to describe a clinical condition relating neck pain and/or injury to dizziness and disequilibrium. These days, cervicogenic dizziness (CD) is considered the more accurate diagnosis for this syndrome. There are a.... <view entire article>

The shoulder is not just one joint but rather four: the sternoclavicular (collar bone/breast bone), acromioclavicular (the "roof" of the ball & socket joint), glenohumeral (the ball & socket joint), and scapulothoracic joints (shoulder blade/rib cage joint). There are also many structures in the vicinity that can mimic shoulder pain-namely, the cervical spine (neck), the upper half of the thoracic spine (upper back), and the rib cage.

Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is one of the many conditions that can accompany a whiplash injury. The term is often used interchangeably with concussion, while "post-concussion syndrome" and TBI (without the word "mild") refer to long-term residual symptoms. Symptoms associated with mTBI initially include dizziness, nausea, and headaches followed by slow cognition-difficulty processing thought, losing one's place during discussions, difficulty with verbal expression, and more. Many mTBI sufferers describe this as "mental fog." Following mTBI, the brain releases various chemicals.... <view entire article>

We all know that bacteria can cause disease, so it makes sense to be at least a little leery about taking a supplement that is loaded with bacteria. There is however, a growing volume of scientific support that probiotics (PBs) can both treat as well as prevent quite a few illnesses. Probiotics literally means "for life" (pro biota), which suggests these must be "good" bacteria and indeed, our digestive system's health depends on maintaining a balance between the good and bad.... <view entire article>
