Many people around the world are disabled by degenerative disc disease in their backs and necks, according to Cornell University’s Chronicle Online. Fortunately, medical and engineering professionals work daily to find new and better ways to offer relief from chronic and debilitating pain.
For example, Cornell engineers and doctors in New York “have created a biologically based spinal implant that could someday mean relief for countless sufferers,” writes Ann Ju in the Cornell Chronicle.
New biologically based discs might have an advantage over potentially risky “bone or metal or plastic implants” which can move around in the body. Also, “debris from the metal or plastic particles” can accumulate inside us from wear and tear.
To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. (1 Corinthians 12:7)
Help relieve the pain that keeps me from living fully, Jesus.
