Objective: There is high unmet need for effective behavioral treatments for chronic pain patients at risk for or with demonstrated histories of opioid misuse. Despite growing evidence supporting technology-based delivery of self-management interventions for chronic pain, very few such programs target co-occurring chronic pain and aberrant drug-related behavior. This randomized controlled trial evaluated the effectiveness of a novel, web-based self-management intervention, grounded in cognitive behavior therapy, for chronic pain patients with aberrant drug-related behavior...

Background: Chronic nononcological perineal pain has been effectively managed by ganglion Impar block. Chemical neurolysis, cryoablation, and radiofrequency ablation have been the accepted methods of blockade. Recently, pulsed radiofrequency, a novel variant of conventional radiofrequency, has been used for this purpose. Study Design: This was a prospective, randomized, double-blind study. Setting: Two different interventional pain management centers in India...

Objective: To pilot test the effectiveness, feasibility, and acceptability of instituting a 15-pill quantity default in the electronic health record for new Schedule II opioid prescriptions. Design: A mixed-methods pilot study in two health systems, including pre-post analysis of prescribed opioid quantity and focus groups or interviews with prescribers and health system administrators. Methods: We implemented a 15-pill electronic health record default for new Schedule II opioids and assessed opioid quantity before and after implementation using electronic health record data on 6,390 opioid prescriptions from 448 prescribers...

Objectives: The analgesic mechanism of long-lasting exercise on neuropathic pain is not well understood. This study explored the effects of swimming training on neuropathic pain and the expression of irisin, GAD65, and P2X3 after chronic constriction injury (CCI) of the sciatic nerve. Methods: Thirty-five male rats were randomly assigned to one of the following five groups: 1) no CCI or swimming (control); 2) swimming without CCI (SW); 3) swimming with CCI (CCISW); 4) CCI without swimming (CCI); and 5) sham CCI surgery (sham CCI)...

Objective: To determine 1) the feasibility of implementing an e-learning module on chronic low back pain (CLBP) in an older adult into an existing internal medicine residency curriculum and 2) the impact of this module on resident attitudes, confidence, knowledge, and clinical skills relating to CLBP. Methods: Participants were assigned to complete either the online module (N = 73) or the Yale Office-based curriculum on CLBP (N = 70). Attitudes, confidence, and knowledge were evaluated pre- and postintervention via survey...

Aim: The principal study objective was to investigate the pharmacokinetic characteristics and determine the absolute bioavailability and tolerability of a new sublingual (SL) buprenorphine wafer. Methods: The study was of open label, two-way randomized crossover design in 14 fasted healthy male and female volunteers. Each participant, under naltrexone block, received either a single intravenous dose of 300 mcg of buprenorphine as a constant infusion over five minutes or a sublingual dose of 800 mcg of buprenorphine in two treatment periods separated by a seven-day washout period...

Background: Impairment in the cervical proprioception and deep flexor muscle function and morphology have been regarded to be associated with chronic neck pain (CNP). Objective:  The aim of the study is to assess the relationship between proprioception and flexor endurance capacity and size and clinical CNP characteristics. Design:  This was an observational, cross-sectional study. Setting:  Rehabilitation hospital laboratory...

Objective: Hyperexcitability of the central nervous system plays an important role in the development and maintenance of chronic pain in adults. This knowledge has led to improved treatment strategies within this population. In children, however, research on the presence of central hyperexcitability is scarce. To further investigate this topic in children with chronic pain, there is a need for a clear literature overview. Design: Systematic review. Methods: The literature search was performed using the electronic databases PubMed and Web of Science...

Background: Although the brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) has been intensively investigated in animal models of chronic pain, its role in human pain processing is less understood. Objective: To study the neurophysiology of BDNF modulation on acute experimental pain, we performed a cross-sectional study. Methods: We recruited 20 healthy male volunteers (19-40 years old) and assessed their serum BDNF levels, quantitative sensory testing, and cortical excitability parameters using transcranial magnetic stimulation...

Objective: Acupuncture is a low risk option in pain management following total knee replacement as an alternative to opioid analgesics. Therefore, the benefit of acupuncture as adjunct to an exercise program was investigated. Furthermore, the modifying effect of previous benefit from acupuncture was explored.

Objective: Previous studies have demonstrated the effects of positive psychological factors on pain adjustment. Specifically, optimism has been linked to better physical functioning and less psychological distress. Until recently, these beneficial effects have mostly been examined in correlational studies or laboratory settings. The aim of this study was to test the efficacy of the Best Possible Self intervention using information and communication technologies with fibromyalgia patients...
