Thank You Grand Rounds 5:11 - Death and Transfiguration

Thank you to the blog for including my post 14,000 Miles on a Bike - Herniating and Fixing Discs in this past week's edition of Grand Rounds.

On the web, Grand Rounds is a collection of the best on-line medical posts from the past week. A different host works hard each week to find and list the articles. This is different from the Grand Rounds in a hospital, which is a lecture for doctors about a patient or topic.

MexicoMedStudent wrote that the post, "Reminds us that most intervertebral disc problems happen over time, and so too over time, they can also be repaired sensibly without invasive intervention." Discs can heal, but it does not take much time. Disc healing can be quick, if you stop injuring them with ordinary bad habits that you already know not to do. Check the post for easy ways to prevent and heal discs.

Thank you to this week's host for doing the hard work of collecting and featuring our posts.
