Acupuncture Improves Spinal Cord Injury Bladder Function

Published: September 2, 2019

Acupuncture improves bladder function for spinal cord injury patients. First Affiliated Huai’an People’s Hospital of Nanjing Medical University researchers find acupuncture combined with intermittent catheterization alleviates neurogenic bladder dysfunction caused by traumatic spinal cord injuries . The study found significant improvements in bladder capacity, residual volume, urinary flow rate, urinary volume, and detrusor pressure following this combined treatment approach.

University of Alberta research team receives $3.3 million to create open-source database for international spinal cord injury research

The University of Alberta and the University of California, San Francisco are teaming up to launch the world’s first Open Data Commons for preclinical Spinal Cord Injury research (ODC-SCI). A consortium of international organizations will be providing $3.3 million CAD to help fund the initiative. The ODC-SCI will improve spinal cord injury research and treatment worldwide by reducing data bias and equipping scientists by making data more accessible, enhancing research and translational efforts.

On and off the field, Nick Buoniconti made a difference

Published: August 2, 2019

Yes, Nick Buoniconti was a famous football player. He was a member of the Miami Dolphins’ “Perfect Season” and Super Bowl championship teams. He was known for playing middle linebacker with a passion, tracking down quarterbacks like a heat-seeking missile.

He was an integral part of the Dolphins’ glory years.

But as Buoniconti’s legacy is reassessed following his death on Tuesday, it’s pretty much unanimous that it’s what he did after he left the field — and a horrific family tragedy — that truly meant the most to so many South Floridians.

Life-changing injury leads to research career for Peter Grahn, Ph.D.

Published: February 6, 2019 | Spinal Cord Injury:

WILLMAR — A diving accident the summer after he graduated from Willmar High School changed the whole course of Peter Grahn’s life.

The spinal cord injury he suffered was life-altering but it’s also what led him to his calling — as a researcher into the intricacies of neuromodulation at the Mayo Clinic.

The work he’s doing at Mayo could someday enable people like him to recover, even if only partially, from spinal cord injuries that limit their ability to walk, use their hands and move around freely.
