Well here it is the last #TOTW for 2014! I’ve chosen a tweet that I think kind of got lost in the Christmas festivities and felt it needed, well, deserved another airing:
#Arthritis sufferers offered hope after electrical implants leave patients ‘pain free @Independent @GSK @ArthritisRUK http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/health-news/hope-for-arthritis-sufferers-after-trial-electrical-implants-leave-some-patients-pain-free-9941001.html …
If you read the article you will see that the study is a small one so the results of the trial need to be treated with caution. However, if a larger scale study were to replicate the same results then surely this would be a massive step forward in the treatment of arthritis and possibly many other chronic diseases that currently rely on patients taking long-term medications to alleviate their symptoms.
Check it out! It’s actually rather interesting!
