Research News

Read about Dr Lynn and Jane Greening's research and our meeting with Dr Lynn in Christchurch

"Old news" but Good News for RSI/OOS sufferers!
RSI (OOS) is shown to involve nerve injury.

Use of high frequency ultrasound to measure nerve movements occurring during limb movements
by Dr Bruce Lynn and Jane Greening at University College, London. From the Journal of Physiology

High frequency ultrasound as opposed to normal ultrasound testing. Better imaging than ordinary ultrasound, and has the advantage of being able to scan the structure in different positions. (Ultrasound pics of the forearm tendons are shown.)

Possibility of fibromyalgia and spinal disc origin,
Dr McFadden's research.
(Note: It's possible for OOS to become a fibromyalgia condition. Fibromyalgia means "pain in the fibrous tissues and muscles".)
