Altered connective tissue structure has been identified in adults with chronic low back pain (LBP). A self-care treatment for managing LBP is the MELT method. The MELT method is a hands-off, self-treatment that is said to alleviate chronic pain, release tension and restore mobility, utilizing specialized soft treatments balls, soft body roller and techniques mimicking manual therapy. The objective of this study was to determine whether thickness of thoracolumbar connective tissue and biomechanical and viscoelastic properties of myofascial tissue in the low back region change in subjects with chronic LBP as a result of MELT...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective review. OBJECTIVE: To identify the top 100 spine research topics. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Recent advances in "machine learning," or computers learning without explicit instructions, have yielded broad technological advances. Topic modeling algorithms can be applied to large volumes of text to discover quantifiable themes and trends. METHODS: Abstracts were extracted from the National Library of Medicine PubMed database from five prominent peer-reviewed spine journals (European Spine Journal [ESJ], The Spine Journal [SpineJ], Spine, Journal of Spinal Disorders and Techniques [JSDT], Journal of Neurosurgery: Spine [JNS])...

BACKGROUND : The aim of this study was to determine whether spinal cord stimulation (SCS) using 3D neural targeting provided sustained overall and low back pain relief in a broad routine clinical practice population. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS:  This was a multicenter, open-label observational study with an observational arm and retrospective analysis of a matched cohort. After IPG implantation, programming was done using a patient-specific, model-based algorithm to adjust for lead position (3D neural targeting) or previous generation software (traditional)...

INTRODUCTION: Mapping algorithms are increasingly being used to predict health-utility values based on responses or scores from non-preference-based measures, thereby informing economic evaluations. OBJECTIVES: We explored whether predictions in the EuroQol 5-dimension 3-level instrument (EQ-5D-3L) health-utility gains from mapping algorithms might differ if estimated using differenced versus raw scores, using the Roland-Morris Disability Questionnaire (RMQ), a widely used health status measure for low back pain, as an example...

OBJECTIVE : To present the 11th in a series of articles designed to deconstruct chronic low back pain (CLBP) in older adults. The series presents CLBP as a syndrome, a final common pathway for the expression of multiple contributors rather than a disease localized exclusively to the lumbosacral spine. Each article addresses one of 12 important contributions to pain and disability in older adults with CLBP. This article focuses on dementia. METHODS:  A modified Delphi technique was used to develop an algorithm for an approach to treatment for older adults living with CLBP and dementia...

OBJECTIVE: Despite widespread use of lumbar spinal fusion as a treatment for back pain, outcomes remain variable. Optimizing patient selection can help to reduce adverse outcomes. This literature review was conducted to better understand factors associated with optimal postoperative results after lumbar spinal fusion for chronic back pain and current tools used for evaluation. METHODS: The PubMed database was searched for clinical trials related to psychosocial determinants of outcome after lumbar spinal fusion surgery; evaluation of commonly used patient subjective outcome measures; and perioperative cognitive, behavioral, and educational therapies...

INTRODUCTION: Treatment of low-back pain using Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) has been historically challenging. Advances in surgical leads and programming capabilities have been thought to potentially enable improved low-back pain relief using SCS. A recently introduced 32-contact surgical lead, which couples multiple independent current control (MICC) and anatomically based neural targeting stimulation algorithms, allows for patient-specific programming optimization. We present here a real-world, observational study of this 32-contact surgical lead...

UNLABELLED: Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (dTMS) is the next generation of technology used to treat Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). dTMS has been proven to be a safe and effective treatment modality for MDD and may have secondary benefits in patients with chronic low back pain by reducing pain related morbidity. We are presenting two case studies with MDD and chronic low back pain to demonstrate the effectiveness of both the antidepressant and analgesic effects of dTMS. BACKGROUND: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) utilizes MRI-strength magnetic pulses outside the cranium to stimulate the brain to a depth of approximately 1 cm...

Low back pain (LBP) has become one of the greatest public health problems. The differentiation between specific and non-specific low back pain is mandatory. In the specific low back pain are classified all diseases whose etiology is well defined, quick and accurate diagnosis is required for specific treatment. Other types of low back pain can be considered non-specific. The management of acute low back pain is mainly based on analgesic treatment and early mobilization. Maintaining activity can prevent chronicity of LBP...

PURPOSE: The stage of unstable dysfunction, also defined as "active discopathy" by Nguyen in 2015 and configuring the first phase of the degenerative cascade described by Kirkaldy-Willis, has specific pathoanatomical and clinical characteristics (low back pain) in the interested vertebral segment, without the presence of spondylolisthesis in flexion-extension radiography. This clinical condition has been defined as "microinstability" (MI). The term has currently not been recognized by the scientific community and is subject of debate for its diagnostic challenge...
