Cognitive Benefits of Learning the an Instrument

Frank Bryant, MD, of Roswell, New Mexico, has practiced as an orthopedic surgeon and pursued a number of interests in other fields, such as hay farming and natural energy. Apart from his professional endeavors, Frank Bryant, MD, enjoys a wide range of hobbies, including playing the accordion.

Scientists have dedicated significant amount of research into the effects learning an instrument, such as the accordion, has on the musician and his or her cognitive capacities. Different studies have yield a variety of results, suggesting that learning to play an instrument can elevate IQ scores by roughly seven points and that music study can improve language processing.

While conflicts exits among researchers as to the immediate benefits of music on children, scholars have found common ground in their evaluations of musical instrument learning on cognitive longevity. Research findings assert that music can condition the mind to perform at higher levels for many years and that it can fulfill a preemptive role against memory loss, among other age-related issues.

A Brief History of Foxhunting around the Globe

A surgeon and entrepreneur with over three decades of experience, Frank Bryant, MD, recently relocated and joined a medical practice in his hometown of Roswell, New Mexico. In his free time, Frank Bryant, MD, enjoys a range of activities, including farming, playing the accordion, and English foxhunting.

Although the practice of chasing prey with the aid of hunting dogs dates back to ancient Rome, the first recorded English foxhunt took place in Norfolk in 1534, when a local farmer attempted to track down a fox using his farm dogs. Foxhunting soon became a favored sport throughout the United Kingdom, and it remained popular well into the 20th century.

In recent decades, foxhunting has become a less common activity in the United Kingdom, but it is still going strong in many other countries around the globe. According to the Masters of Foxhounds Association and Foundation (MFHA), there are 156 organized foxhunting clubs in North America alone. The sport remains especially popular in the United States, where it has been enjoyed since the late colonial period.

Tibial Torsion in Children

With over 25 years of experience, Frank Bryant, MD, treats patients in his capacity as an orthopaedic surgeon in Roswell, New Mexico. Also an experienced presenter, Frank Bryant, MD, has shared his knowledge of such issues as tibial torsion in children.

Tibial torsion, or twisting of the shin bone, is a common cause of intoeing in children. It occurs when the child's tibia, the larger of the two bones in the lower leg, rotates inward and causes the toes on the affected foot to point toward the other leg.

The condition often develops as a result of the fetal legs rotating inward to fit within the uterus. In many cases, the condition resolves itself naturally after birth. Cases that take longer to resolve often become apparent when the child begins learning to walk, at which time the toes will turn inward. Most children who present in this way do experience a natural realignment of the tibia, however, and are walking normally by the time they enter elementary school.

Some cases of tibial torsion are permanent, though they are asymptomatic the majority of the time. The most severe presentations of tibial torsion may cause locomotor difficulties and thus require surgery, which involves the mechanical separation and rotating of the tibia. A qualified physician can determine whether patient circumstances indicate the need for such intervention.

Recovery Periods Vary Greatly for Common Orthopedic Surgeries

Orthopedic surgeries involve preoperative, operative, and post-operative treatment for musculoskeletal problems. Frank Bryant, MD, is an orthopedic surgeon working at a private practice in Roswell, New Mexico. In addition, Frank Bryant, MD, is certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery.

Undergoing invasive orthopedic surgeries requires a specific maximal recovery time to promote proper healing. The time it takes to recover from a recent surgery varies from person to person, depending on the status of their health and their ability to follow post-operative instructions.

A study pertaining to at-home recovery for common orthopedic surgeries was presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. The results of the study showed an estimate of how long a patient stayed at home while recovering from a recent surgery. The researchers chose to study subjects who were five to 19 years old who were enrolled in elementary school, middle school, and high school from September 2014 to December 2015. The results found that, depending on the type of surgery done, a patient can stay at home from 4 to 42 days.

The Different Forms of Spinal Stenosis

A board-certified orthopedic surgeon, Frank Bryant, MD, leverages decades of experience to serve patients at a private practice in Roswell, New Mexico. Throughout his career, Frank Bryant, MD, has remained current in his field by pursuing continuing education in such areas as spinal stenosis.

In those with spinal stenosis, the empty spaces in the spine become more confined than normal, which causes a build-up of pressure in various regions of the spinal cord. Some patients have the congenital form of this condition, while others develop it as they age. Most commonly, however, spinal stenosis arises in patients who have experienced the spinal changes of osteoarthritis.

Spinal stenosis typically affects patients in either the lumbar or cervical areas. In the lumbar form, the narrowed spine compresses the root nerves in the L3-L4 or L4-L5 regions of the lower back. This most often causes a tingling or painful feeling in the legs, particularly when standing. Cervical stenosis occurs in the neck region, which can lead to a compression of the entire spinal cord. In addition to numbness in the limbs, it can cause more serious side-effects such as paralysis and incontinence.
