BACKGROUND: Hemiplegic Shoulder Pain (HSP) following stroke significantly affects the individual's function and quality of life. The mechanism of HSP is not clearly understood, hence it is unclear why HSP resolves spontaneously or following routine care in some patients, while in others it becomes persistent. The aim was therefore, to study whether HSP is associated with deficient pain modulation. METHODS: Thirty post-stroke patients; 16 with HSP and 14 without HSP, and 20 matched controls participated...

Chronic non-malignant pain perceived in the pelvic region commonly presents as a diagnostic challenge and is often difficult to manage. Treatment options are delayed as well as limited. The prevalence in the United States and the United Kingdom has been estimated to range from 14.7 % to 24% respectively (1, 2). Common chronic pelvic pain syndromes include interstitial cystitis, chronic prostatitis, coccygodynia, vulvodynia, chronic proctalgia, and pudendal neuralgia. This article is protected by copyright.

BACKGROUND: Phantom limb pain (PLP) affects a high percentage of amputees. Since treatment options are limited, low quality of life and addiction to pain medication is frequent. New attempts, such as mirror therapy or electrical sensory discrimination training, make use of the brain's plasticity to alleviate this centrally derived pain. AIM: This pilot study assessed the question, whether home-based tactile discrimination training (TDT) leads to a stronger decrease in phantom limb pain levels, compared to a standard massage treatment...

BACKGROUND: Intrathecal drug delivery (ITDD) systems are one of a limited number of management options for chronic non-cancer pain, cancer pain and spasticity. Concerns over their effectiveness and high initial costs led NHS England to decommission ITDD for patients with chronic non-cancer pain. However, the extent to which this decision is in line with existing economic evidence is unclear. The aim of this systematic review is to identify and review the existing evidence on the cost-effectiveness of ITDD for chronic non-cancer pain...

BACKGROUND: Factors such as age, gender and genetic polymorphisms may explain individual difference in pain phenotype. Genetic associations to pain sensitivity have previously been investigated in osteoarthritis patients with focus on the P2X7, TRPV1 and TACR1 genes. However, other genes may play a role as well. Osteoarthritis is a common joint disease and many patients suffering from this disease are thought to have increased sensitivity to noxious stimuli resulting from sensitization in the nociceptive system...

BACKGROUNDS: Malignant psoas syndrome (MPS) is a rare but distressing pain syndrome observed in advanced cancer patients. Pain due to MPS is often refractory to multi-modal analgesic treatment, including opioid analgesics. As only one case demonstrating the efficacy of neuraxial analgesia in managing pain due to MPS has been reported, its role in MPS remains uncertain. CASES: We present three cases demonstrating the successful management of pain due to MPS using spinal opioids with local anesthetic agents...

INTRODUCTION: Although the importance of psychosocial factors has been highlighted in many studies in patients with chronic low back pain (CLBP), there is a lack of research examining the role of illness perceptions in explaining functional disability and physical activity in patients with CLBP. AIM: The aim of the study was to explore the value of illness perceptions in explaining functional disability and physical activity in patients with CLBP. METHODS: Eighty-four participants with CLBP (of > 3 months' duration) completed a battery of questionnaires investigating psychosocial factors (Pain Catastrophizing Scale [PCS], Illness Perceptions Questionnaire Revised [IPQ-R], and 36-Item Short Form mental health scale [SF-36_MH]) and perceived pain intensity (visual analog scale [VAS]), as well as the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) and Baecke questionnaire...
