Excessive deformation of nerve fibres (axons) in the spinal facet capsular ligaments (FCLs) can be a cause of pain. The axons are embedded in the fibrous extracellular matrix (ECM) of FCLs, so understanding how local fibre organization and micromechanics modulate their mechanical behaviour is essential. We constructed a computational discrete-fibre model of an axon embedded in a collagen fibre network attached to the axon by distinct fibre-axon connections. This model was used to relate the axonal deformation to the fibre alignment and collagen volume concentration of the surrounding network during transverse, axial and shear deformations...

Objectives: Current structural associations of patellofemoral pain (PFP) are based on 2D imaging methodology with inherent measurement uncertainty due to positioning and rotation. This study employed novel technology to create 3D measures of commonly described patellofemoral joint imaging features and compared these features in people with and without PFP in a large cohort. Methods: We compared two groups from the Osteoarthritis Initiative: one with localized PFP and pain on stairs, and a control group with no knee pain; both groups had no radiographic OA...

Katherine B Curtin, Deborah Norris
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The Fear-Avoidance Model of Chronic Pain proposed by Vlaeyen and Linton states individuals enter a cycle of chronic pain due to predisposing psychological factors, such as negative affectivity, negative appraisal or anxiety sensitivity. They do not, however, address the closely related concept of anxious rumination. Although Vlaeyen and Linton suggest cognitive-behavioral treatment methods for chronic pain patients who exhibit pain-related fear, they do not consider mindfulness treatments...

Tai Chi mind-body exercise is widely believed to improve mindfulness through incorporating meditative states into physical movements. A growing number of studies indicate that Tai Chi may improve health in knee osteoarthritis (OA), a chronic pain disease and a primary cause of global disability. However, little is known about the contribution of mindfulness to treatment effect of Tai Chi practice. Therefore, our purpose was to investigate the effect of Tai Chi mind-body practice compared to physical therapy (PT) on mindfulness in knee OA...

Integrins modulate chemically-induced nociception in a variety of inflammatory and neuropathic pain models. Yet, the role of integrins in mechanically-induced pain remains undefined, despite its well-known involvement in cell adhesion and mechanotransduction. Excessive spinal facet capsular ligament stretch is a common injury that induces morphological and functional changes in its innervating afferent neurons and can lead to pain. However, the local mechanisms underlying the translation from tissue deformation to pain signaling are unclear, impeding effective treatment...

Chronic low back pain is a major cause of disability and health care costs. Effective treatments are inadequate for many patients. Animal models are essential to further understanding of the pain mechanism and testing potential therapies. Currently, a number of preclinical models have been developed attempting to mimic aspects of clinical conditions that contribute to low back pain. This review focused on describing these animal models and the main behavioral tests for assessing pain in each model. Animal models of low back pain can be divided into the following five categories: discogenic low back pain, radicular back pain, facet joint osteoarthritis back pain, muscle-induced low back pain, and spontaneous occurring low back pain models...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Conventional laminoplasty is useful for expanding a stenotic spinal canal. However, it has limited use for the decompression of accompanying neural foraminal stenosis. As such, an additional posterior foraminotomy could be simultaneously applied, although this procedure carries a risk of segmental kyphosis and instability. PURPOSE: The aim was to elucidate the long-term surgical outcomes of additional posterior foraminotomy with a laminoplasty for cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) with radiculopathy...

Our aim was to prospectively evaluate the relationship between low back pain-related disability and quantitative measures from [(18)F]-sodium fluoride ([(18)F]-NaF) MR imaging. Six patients with facetogenic low back pain underwent dynamic [(18)F]-NaF PET/MR imaging. PET metrics were correlated with clinical measures and MR imaging grading of lumbar facet arthropathy. A significant positive correlation was observed between maximum facet joint uptake rate and clinical disability (P < .05). These data suggest that dynamic [(18)F]-NaF PET may serve as a useful biomarker for facetogenic disability...
