Research performed by the American College of Cardiology shows that cardiovascular diseases like heart disease, stroke and peripheral artery disease cause one-third of deaths around the world.

The study reviewed the deaths of every country around the globe over the past 25 years.

The countries with the highest rates of cardiovascular deaths were in Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East, Southern Africa and South America. Although the United States, Canada, Japan and Western Europe experienced lower rates of cardiovascular death over the last 25 years, these decreasing rates have begun to slow down and plateau, according to the ACC.

American and Dutch scientists have found that stripes trigger migraines in some patients. The study is the first of its kind to link a pattern to the condition.

And it's not just stripes on clothing that can cause migraine symptoms, according to the study - stripes on animals like the zebra, stripes in art or architecture, and even bar codes were also proven to cause head pain for some study participants. Other individuals experienced migraines triggered by the seemingly innocuous striped patterns of awnings, lawn chairs and radiators.

Back injuries are common in sports. Take German Grand Prix driver Pascal Wehrlein, who suffered a fractured vertebra during a crash in Monaco this May. Slipped disks, strains and sprains can leave players on the bench, but another common back injury for athletes is spinal compression fractures.

What Are Spinal Compression Fractures? 

Compression fractures are fractures that occur when there is a compression force on the vertebrae of the back. When a compression fracture occurs, the affected vertebrae collapse due to the force exerted on them. In most compression fractures, the front part of the bone collapses, leaving the vertebrae a wedge shape.

The authors of the editorial are three cardiologists from the United States,England and Switzerland.

Ten percent of the population suffer from plantar fasciitis, according to the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society can be caused by over pronation. Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain and for many individuals means painful standing or walking.

Inflammation usually occurs when individuals have either flat feet or very high arches, wear unsupportive shoes or shoes that do not fit properly or are on their feet for extended periods of time.

b2ap3_thumbnail_leg-cramp.jpgMost people experience leg muscle cramps one time or another in their lifetime. Frequently cited causes of leg cramps include muscle fatigue caused by overuse, dehydration or potassium deficiency. While leg cramps are usually not very serious, sometimes they are an indication of a more serious health threat, such as like poor circulation.

The cramping of muscles caused by poor circulation to the legs is called claudication. In the majority of claudication sufferers, these cramps usually occur intermittently while walking or other physical activity, and stop during periods of rest. Patients with severe claudication can also experience cramps during periods of rest, as well.

b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_529004896.jpgDo your migraines interfere with work? If you suffer from migraines, you know that they can strike at any time, including during your work day. The pain caused by migraines makes it hard to focus and function in the office. Advanced Radiology offers patients some tips to cope when migraines come on at work.

Know Your Triggers. One of the best ways you can reduce the chance of developing a migraine at work is to remove triggers from your office space. Since bright lights kick off migraines for some individuals, replacing fluorescent lighting and using an anti-glare screen on your computer or other screens helps to minimize their migraines.

Other people are triggered by certain smells, like perfumes and cigarette smoke. Many companies are moving to entirely non-smoking workplaces and also asking employees to not wear perfumes or colognes to the office because of smell-sensitive coworkers.
