Sleep problems are common in people with low back pain (LBP), however the mechanisms on how sleep influences pain are complex. To date there is a lack of prospective research on the timings and the development of sleep problems in those who have LBP, such information would be useful to identify individuals at risk of poor outcome. Aims are to investigate the predictive role of sleep problems on self-report recovery and pain intensity using logistic regression reporting Odds Ratios (OR). An observational cohort of 761 chronic LBP patients recruited from a pain management clinic participated, and completed data at baseline, and at 6 month follow-up (n = 682)...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: The Pain Sensitivity Questionnaire (PSQ), a self-reported scale, has been used to assess the pain sensitivity level in a Caucasian population. However, a validated Mandarin Chinese version of the PSQ is not available. This study was aimed to translate the PSQ into Mandarin Chinese (PSQ-C) and validate it to measure pain sensitivity among Chinese people. METHODS: The English version of the PSQ has been translated into Mandarin Chinese (PSQ-C), according to the standard steps of cross-cultural adaptation of self-reported scales...

BACKGROUND: There is a growing interest in the role of disturbed body perception in people with persistent pain problems such as chronic low back pain (CLBP). A questionnaire, the Fremantle Back Awareness Questionnaire (FreBAQ), was recently developed as a simple and quick way of assessing disturbed perceptual awareness of the back in people with CLBP and appears to have acceptable psychometric properties. The aim of the present study was to develop a Japanese version of the FreBAQ (FreBAQ-J) and evaluate its psychometric properties in a sample of Japanese people with low back pain (LBP)...

Limb amputation is sometimes being performed in long-standing complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), although little evidence is available guiding management decisions, including how CRPS recurrence should be managed. This report details the management of a young soldier with CRPS recurrence 2 years after midtibial amputation for CRPS. Conventional spinal cord stimulation did not achieve paraesthetic coverage, or pain relief in the stump, whereas L4 dorsal root ganglion stimulation achieved both coverage and initially modest pain relief, and over time, substantial pain relief...

Shervin Harandi, Leonardo Kapural
OBJECTIVES AND METHODS: A few published reports describe successful clinical use of low-frequency spinal cord stimulation (SCS) in the cervical spine resulting in bilateral upper and lower extremity pain relief. Major side-effect when using this modality of SCS is the uneven intensity of paresthesias which are frequently excessive in upper extremities while attempting to achieve optimal paresthesia coverage in all four extremities. RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS: Here we describe a successful case of high frequency SCS at 10 kHz where profound control of neuropathic pain of all four extremities was achieved without the complication of paresthesias...

BACKGROUND: Historically, transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block has been performed to treat acute abdominal pain that accompanies a variety of surgical procedures. This study represents an innovative approach in which the TAP block was performed on patients experiencing chronic abdominal pain who had failed other forms of pain management. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of the TAP block procedure in patients experiencing chronic abdominal pain. METHODS: In this retrospective chart review and data analysis, we reviewed the charts of 30 chronic abdominal pain patients previously treated with 45 TAP blocks after other forms of pain management had failed...

Osteoid osteomas of the spine are benign bone tumors typically presenting with progressive pain without neurological deficit. This report presents a case of an osteoid osteoma in the lumbar spine associated with radicular pain. The patient, a young male athlete, presented with severe chronic nightly left low back pain radiated to the ipsilateral lower extremity who failed to respond to physical therapy and analgesic medications. Initial radiologic examination was reported as normal, but closer inspection of the T1- and T2-weighted magnetic resonance image as well as technetium-99m total body bone scan and a computed tomography scan revealed a bony lesion in the left transverse process of the L4 vertebra consistent with the diagnosis of osteoid osteoma...

BACKGROUND: Enhanced recovery after surgery programs have incorporated gabapentin as part of a multimodal analgesia protocol. The preemptive use of gabapentin was found to be beneficial due to its opioid-sparing effect. However, excessive sedation and delayed discharge from postanesthesia recovery units are of concern. The aim of this study was to investigate whether preoperative gabapentin increased the length of stay in the recovery unit. METHODS: This retrospective cross-sectional study was carried out over a period of 2 months in the postanesthesia care unit (PACU) of a tertiary care hospital in Canada...

BACKGROUND: Recognizing expectations and concerns of patients leads to more specialized management plans and greater adherence to treatment, and improves outcomes. Little is known about how age impacts on expectations or concerns regarding pain in patients attending a chronic pain clinic. METHODS: We prospectively assessed the expectations and concerns of 100 adult patients at their first visit to a pain clinic. Patients reported their expectations and concerns for the clinic visit using a self-completed questionnaire...

Tension-type headache (TTH) is the most prevalent primary headache. Chronic TTH (CTTH), the most serious form of TTH, is refractory, with a high socio-economic burden. Research studies have shown patients with migraine often had cognitive impairment, but few studies have focused on the cognition in CTTH patients. In the present study, we assumed that patients with CTTH also have cognitive impairments, which are modulated by the neuroendocrine state. Participants were recruited, including CTTH patients and healthy controls...

Catelijne M van Bussel, Dirk L Stronks, Frank J P M Huygen
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Patients with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) confined to the knee are often therapy resistant. Neurostimulation is an accepted treatment for CRPS. Although results with dorsal column (DC) stimulation in patients with CRPS confined to the knee are often disappointing, the availability of dorsal root ganglion (DRG) stimulation may provide new opportunities for this complaint. Therefore, this study explores patients' preference for DC stimulation vs. DRG stimulation in treating chronic pain due to CRPS confined to the knee...

As the leading cause of disability among U.S. adults, chronic low back pain (LBP) is one of the most prevalent and challenging musculoskeletal conditions. Neuromodulation provides an opportunity to reduce or eliminate the use of opioids to treat chronic LBP, but the cost and invasiveness of existing methods have limited its broad adoption, especially earlier in the treatment continuum. The present case report details the results of a novel method of short-term percutaneous peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) in 2 subjects with chronic LBP...
