Tracking ocean heat uptake during the surface warming hiatus.

Nat Commun 2016 Mar 30;7:10926. Epub 2016 Mar 30.

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, 902 Battelle Blvd, Richland, Washington 99354, USA.

Ocean heat uptake is observed to penetrate deep into the Atlantic and Southern Oceans during the recent hiatus of global warming. Here we show that the deep heat penetration in these two basins is not unique to the hiatus but is characteristic of anthropogenic warming and merely reflects the depth of the mean meridional overturning circulation in the basin. We find, however, that heat redistribution in the upper 350 m between the Pacific and Indian Oceans is closely tied to the surface warming hiatus. Read More

Validation of a Hybrid Microwave-Optical Monitor to Investigate Thermal Provocation in the Microvasculature.

Adv Exp Med Biol 2016 ;876:435-441

Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering, University College London, London, UK.

We have previously developed a hybrid microwave-optical system to monitor microvascular changes in response to thermal provocation in muscle. The hybrid probe is capable of inducing deep heat from the skin surface using mild microwaves (1-3 W) and raises the tissue temperature by a few degrees Celsius. This causes vasodilation and the subsequent increase in blood volume is detected by the hybrid probe using near infrared spectroscopy. Read More

[Hyperthermia. Modification of body temperature as clinical therapeutics].

Rev Enferm 2011 Apr;34(4):12-7

Servico Navarro de Salud, Complejo Hospitalario de Navarra.

The application of heat or cold therapy is called thermotherapy Thermotherapy has been used since ancient times, Egyptians, Greeks and Romans used solar radiation or submersion in springs to apply heat and ice and snow for cold application. The first scientific references related to thermotherapy appear in late eighteenth century but the twentieth century when the introduction of new forms of deep heat therapy have expanded their capabilities and their operation with media surface more comfortable and effective. Thermotherapy although they require more experimentation to obtain a solid scientific proof that their use is raising great expectations in various fields such as oncology treatment, surgery neurology etc. Read More

Effects of deep heat as a preventative mechanism on delayed onset muscle soreness.

J Strength Cond Res 2004 Feb;18(1):155-61

Department of Kinesiology and Health Promotion, University of Kentucky, Lexington, Kentucky 40506, USA.

The effects of increased muscle temperature via continuous ultrasound prior to a maximal bout of eccentric exercise were investigated on the symptoms of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) of the elbow flexors. Perceived muscle soreness, upper arm circumferences, range of motion (ROM), and isometric and isokinetic strength were measured over 7 days on 14 college-aged men (n = 6) and women (n = 8). Ten minutes of continuous ultrasound (ULT) or sham-ultrasound (CON) were administered. Read More

Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Johnson Memorial Hospital, Stafford Springs, CT, USA.

According to Krusen's Handbook of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, topical application of ultrasound exerts only an indirect and adjunctive effect as deep-heat treatment. In support of this idea the extensibility of an isolated tendon in a heated water bath is described. The significance of this experiment as a biological phenomenon has never been critically examined.

The Benefits of Deep Heat.

Phys Sportsmed 1994 Feb;22(2):76-88

In brief Ultrasound and electromagnetic diathermy (both shortwave and microwave) have useful roles in treating sports injuries. Ultrasound can control inflammation, improve collagen elasticity, and deliver medication to selected tissues. Electromagnetic diathermy is an alternative to ultrasound for alleviating muscle or joint contractures, muscle spasm, and pain. Read More

Evaluation and conservative management of spondylolisthesis.

Authors:
M R Bookhout

J Back Musculoskelet Rehabil 1993 Jan;3(4):24-31

Physical Therapy Orthopaedic Specialists, Inc., Minneapolis, MN.

Plain x-rays of the lumbar spine are not helpful in diagnosing most known causes of low back pain but can reveal structural changes such as disc space narrowing, scoliosis, lumbarization or sacralization, spondylolysis, and spondylolisthesis. Spondylolisthesis is defined as the forward displacement of one vertebrae upon another, usually at the L5-S1 level, but also occurring at L4-5. For spondylolisthesis to occur there must be an anatomical change in the structures which normally resist the anterior displacement of one vertebrae upon the other. Read More

Authors:
C E Chapman

Can J Physiol Pharmacol 1991 May;69(5):704-12

Ecole de réadaptation, Département de physiologie, Université de Montréal, Québec, Canada.

Physical modalities, including cold and heat, are widely used in the conservative management of pain associated with musculoskeletal disorders. This review has critically appraised the literature supporting the use of these modalities in the treatment of musculoskeletal pain. It was concluded that, apart from a few exceptions and in a few types of disorders, existing evidence does not support the use of these modalities in long-term pain control. Read More

Deep heat in the treatment of inflammatory joint disease.

Med Hypotheses 1988 Apr;25(4):231-3

Dept. of Medicine D, Beilinson Medical Center, Petah-Tikva, Israel.

There is now a growing body of clinical evidence suggesting a therapeutic approach to cancer and prostatic hypertrophy by using hyperthermia. It is proposed that such a hyperthermic modality can produce thermal synovectomy in inflammatory arthritis. Heating the joint cavity up to 42 deg C can inhibit the enzymatic effect of collagenase, oxygenase, and other enzymes playing a role in the inflammatory process. Read More

The use of physical agents in rehabilitation of athletic injuries.

The competitive athlete's motivation to return to activity following injury presents a challenge to the sports medicine specialist to utilize the most effective rehabilitation procedures available. Safe return to competition necessitates maximal restoration of those components of physical fitness affected by injury (such as muscular strength, power, endurance). Various forms of superficial heat and cold application, deep heat modalities, and electrical currents have been used to supplement therapeutic exercise in this process. Read More

Therapeutic cold, or cryotherapy, has the cooling of the tissues as its primary effect. Based on the mode of application and duration of exposure, the basic physiologic effects are sedation, refrigeration, and the possibility of tissue destruction, Therapeutic heat is usually applied for two physical effects: superficial heat and deep heat. Hyperemia, sedation, and analgesia are the primary effects. Read More

Some observations on the pharmacology of 'deep-heat', a topical rubifacient.

Ann Rheum Dis 1984 Jun;43(3):411-5

A topically applied rubifacient delivered by aerosol (Deep-Heat) was studied. After spray application to the forearms of volunteers, without massage, the erythema produced was measured by thermography and correlated with the concentration of 2 salicylate components of the mixture found in local and systemic venous blood. Maximum erythema occurred at about 30 minutes, while blood salicylate levels were maximal between 20 and 30 minutes after application. Read More
