Neuropathic pain is a common phenomenon that affects millions of people worldwide. Maxillofacial structures consist of various tissues that receive frequent stimulation during food digestion. The unique functions (masticatory process and facial expression) of the maxillofacial structure require the exquisite organization of both the peripheral and central nervous systems. Neuralgia is painful paroxysmal disorder of the head-neck region characterized by some commonly shared features such as the unilateral pain, transience and recurrence of attacks, and superficial and shock-like pain at a trigger point...

Osteoarthritis (OA), the most common form of arthritis, is a significant public health burden in U.S. adults. Among its many risk factors, obesity is a key player, causing inflammation, pain, impaired joint function, and reduced quality of life. Dietary polyphenols and other bioactive compounds in berries, curcumin, and tea have shown effects in ameliorating pain and inflammation in OA, but few clinical studies have been reported. The purpose of the present study was to examine the effects of dietary strawberries on pain, markers of inflammation, and quality of life indicators in obese adults with OA of the knee...

The Orthopaedic Section of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) has an ongoing effort to create evidence-based practice guidelines for orthopaedic physical therapy management of patients with musculoskeletal impairments described in the World Health Organization's International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF). The purpose of these revised clinical practice guidelines is to review recent peer-reviewed literature and make recommendations related to neck pain. J Orthop Sports Phys Ther...

[Purpose] The aim of this study was to examine the effects of exercise to strengthen the muscles of the hip together with lumbar segmental stabilization exercise on the lumbar disability index, lumbar muscle strength, and balance. [Subjects and Methods] This study randomly and equally assigned 40 participants who provided written consent to participate in this study to a lumbar segmental stabilization exercise plus exercise to strengthen the muscles of the gluteus group (SMG + LES group) and a lumbar segmental stabilization exercise group...

OBJECTIVE: To provide evidence for the existence of 6 myofascial meridians proposed by Myers based on anatomic dissection studies. DATA SOURCES: Relevant articles published between 1900 and December 2014 were searched in MEDLINE (PubMed), ScienceDirect, and Google Scholar. STUDY SELECTION: Peer-reviewed human anatomic dissection studies reporting morphologic continuity between the muscular constituents of the examined meridians were included...

BACKGROUND: Deaths due to prescription opioid overdoses have increased dramatically. High-quality guidelines could help clinicians mitigate risks associated with opioid therapy. PURPOSE: To evaluate the quality and content of guidelines on the use of opioids for chronic pain. DATA SOURCES: MEDLINE, National Guideline Clearinghouse, specialty society Web sites, and international guideline clearinghouses (searched in July 2013). STUDY SELECTION: Guidelines published between January 2007 and July 2013 addressing the use of opioids for chronic pain in adults were selected...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
Francesca L Beaudoin, Charlie Lin, Wentao Guan, Roland C Merchant
OBJECTIVES: Low-dose ketamine has been used perioperatively for pain control and may be a useful adjunct to intravenous (IV) opioids in the control of acute pain in the emergency department (ED). The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of low-dose ketamine as an adjunct to morphine versus standard care with morphine alone for the treatment of acute moderate to severe pain among ED patients. METHODS: A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial with three study groups was conducted at a large, urban academic ED over a 10-month period...

OBJECTIVES: To describe pediatric emergency medicine (PEM) physicians' reported pain management practices across Canada and explore factors that facilitate or hinder pain management. METHODS: This study was a prospective survey of Canadian pediatric emergency physicians. The Pediatric Emergency Research Canada physician database was used to identify participants, and a modified Dillman's Total Design Survey Method was used for recruitment. RESULTS: The survey response rate was 68% (139 of 206)...

OBJECTIVE: Certain patient populations may be unable to communicate their needs in the emergency department (ED) setting, and the ability to communicate varies between age groups. We aim to determine if there are differences in pain management of acute long-bone fracture (ALBF) among age groups presenting to the ED. METHODS: This study was a retrospective chart review of a consecutive sample of subjects over 13 months. Fracture site, subject age, arrival time, whether pain medication was administered, and time to initial administration were recorded...

INTRODUCTION: While the benefits of regional analgesia (RA) for preoperative pain relief in hip fracture (HF) in elderly patients are well recognised, this service is yet to be established in many UK emergency departments (EDs). We set out to discover how widely RA is adopted in the UK EDs. METHODS: In April-July 2010, we conducted a postal survey of 218 UK EDs, followed up with fax reminders for non-respondents. RESULTS: A total of 147/218 (67%) EDs completed the survey...
