Reorganizational healing

Simon A Senzon, Donald M Epstein, Daniel Lemberger
OBJECTIVES: This article explains the research on a unique spinal wave visibly observed in association with network spinal analysis care. Since 1997, the network wave has been studied using surface electromyography (sEMG), characterized mathematically, and determined to be a unique and repeatable phenomenon. METHODS: The authors provide a narrative review of the research and a context for the network wave's development. RESULTS: The sEMG research demonstrates that the movement of the musculature of the spine during the wave phenomenon is electromagnetic and mechanical...

Reversible bonds and interactions have been utilized to build stimuli-responsive and reorganizable polymer networks that show recyclability, plasticity, and self-healing. In addition, reorganization of polymer gels at ambient temperature, such as room or body temperature, is expected to lead to several biomedical applications. Although these stimuli-responsive properties originate from the reorganization of the polymer networks, not such microscopic structural changes but instead only macroscopic properties have been the focus of previous work...

Reorganizational Healing, (ROH), is an emerging wellness, growth and behavioral change paradigm. Through its three central elements (the Four Seasons of Wellbeing, the Triad of Change, and the Five Energetic Intelligences) Reorganizational Healing takes an approach to help create a map for individuals to self-assess and draw on strengths to create sustainable change. Reorganizational Healing gives individuals concrete tools to explore and use the meanings of their symptoms, problems, and life-stressors as catalysts to taking new and sustained action to create a more fulfilling and resilient life...

Repair and reconstruction of major nerve trunks in the upper extremity is a very challenging surgical problem. Today, there is no surgical repair technique that can assure recovery of tactile discrimination in the hand of an adult patient following nerve repair. In contrast, young individuals usually attain a complete recovery of functional sensibility. The outcome from nerve repair depends mainly on central nervous system factors including functional cortical reorganizational processes caused by misdirection in axonal outgrowth...

The accumulation of senescent fibroblasts within tissues has been suggested to play an important role in mediating impaired dermal wound healing, which is a major clinical problem in the aged population. The concept that replicative senescence in wound fibroblasts results in reduced proliferation and the failure of refractory wounds to respond to treatment has therefore been proposed. However, in the chronic wounds of aged patients the precise relationship between the observed alteration in cellular responses with aging and replicative senescence remains to be determined...

Hepatocyte growth factor/scatter factor (HGF/SF) is a pleiotropic growth factor produced principally by cells of mesenchymal origin. HGF/SF is an important mitogen, morphogen, and motogen and plays an important role in wound healing, tumorigenesis and particularly fetal development. Oral mucosal fibroblasts exhibit a fetal phenotype, including an increased extracellular matrix reorganizational ability, cellular migration and experimental wound repopulation in comparison to skin fibroblasts. In this study the expression, production, and bioactivity of HGF/SF by oral mucosal and skin fibroblasts was investigated...

BACKGROUND: Oral mucosal wounds are characterized by rapid re-epithelialization and remodelling. In vitro, oral mucosal fibroblasts exhibit a fetal phenotype with increased extracellular matrix reorganizational ability, migration and experimental wound repopulation when compared with skin fibroblasts. OBJECTIVES: To investigate whether phenotypic differences in the expression and production of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) -2 and tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs) could play an important part in mediating these in vitro differences...

The effects of wounding the lower region of rat vibrissa follicles with a sharp tungsten needle were examined histologically, both shortly after injury and up to one year postoperatively. Following cell damage in the dermal papilla component hair growth ceased, and resumption of fibre production was always preceded by dermal papilla reformation. This papilla healing and regeneration was not associated with the production of scar tissue. In follicles undergoing no cell displacement during wounding (an effect associated with the growth of longer than normal hairs) dermal papillae were reformed from the residual papilla cell population, with recruitment of cells from surrounding mesenchyme...

Brain damage may be followed by a number of dynamic events including reactive synaptogenesis, rerouting of axons to unusual locations and altered axon retraction processes. In the present theoretical review, the relationship between these morphological changes and behavioral recovery of function is examined from two perspectives. First, an examination of the research literature reveals that the association between these reorganizational events and recovery of function is inconsistent, and it is proposed that in most cases a causal relationship between neural reorganization and behavioral recovery remains speculative at best...
