What does it mean to have a sub-acute annular tear at s1 vertebrate?

What does it mean to have a sub-acute annular tear at s1 vertebrate?

Disk injury: Technically is not not a tear of the vertebra (a bone), but the disk between two bones. The outer disk (annulus fibrosis) is made of layers of collagen (a material). Think of them as threads woven in layers. They allow for some flexibility and movement between the bones. With aging and time some of the fibers can tear. If nerve fibers grow into the area, it might be a source of pain. ...Read more

Any truth to online claims that those over 35 can still grow 1-3 inches cause spinal chord vertebrates don't fuse? Would chiropractic cause that growth

Any truth to online claims that those over 35 can still grow 1-3 inches cause spinal chord vertebrates don't fuse? Would chiropractic cause that growth

No: That does not happen in real life, only in the online world. Spinal vertebrae that are not supposed to fuse need to stay free. Fusion would prevent movement, because there are movable joints between each of the unfused vertebrae. ...Read more

I have scoliosis at 35% and a doctor told me it looks like my lower vertebrate have fused crookedly. How can this be treated?

I have scoliosis at 35% and a doctor told me it looks like my lower vertebrate have fused crookedly. How can this be treated?

By 35%, you likely: Mean 35 degrees. There are congenital forms of scoliosis, where some vertebrae are wedged in shape (they did not form fully), and then they can also not separate appropriately, during the segmentation stage, hence you have a wedge vertebra fused with another vertebra, causing the spine to be fixed in a "crocked" position at that region, leads to scoliosis. See a scoliosis specialist for evaluation. ...Read more

I am experiencing major pain in my neck. It hurts to cough, because of a stinging pain in my cervical vertebrate. Do you know what this could be?

I am experiencing major pain in my neck. It hurts to cough, because of a stinging pain in my cervical vertebrate. Do you know what this could be?

See doctor: Since much of the nerve pathway goes through the neck area if this pain has been going on for more than a few days or is getting worse, you need to consult your doctor immediately. An orthopedist would be the preferred specialist. I don't know what the cause is (trauma or injury?) but whatever it is, it needs immediate attention. ...Read more

How long does HIV remain active once it outside of it's host. Aside from temperature fluxations, what is the average time depending on regular temp?

How long does HIV remain active once it outside of it's host. Aside from temperature fluxations, what is the average time depending on regular temp?

Not long: Hiv does not typically live very long outside it's host, mainly because it requires a temperature of 98.6 degrees, give or take a degree or two, to survive and flourish. It can live anywhere from several minutes to a few hours on surfaces, depending on the surface and the environmental conditions. Many soaps, bleach, and peroxide will kill the virus on surfaces. Beware of used syringes, however. ...Read more
