OBJECTIVE: We evaluated whether more severe back pain phenotypes-persistent, frequent or disabling back pain-are associated with higher mortality among older men. METHODS: In this secondary analysis of a prospective cohort, the Osteoporotic Fractures in Men (MrOS) study, we evaluated mortality rates by back pain phenotype among 5215 older community-dwelling men (mean age, 73 years, SD = 5.6) from six U.S. sites. The primary back pain measure used baseline and year five back pain questionnaire data to characterize participants as having: no back pain; non-persistent back pain; infrequent persistent back pain; or frequent persistent back pain...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the predictive value of thoracic sympathetic ganglion block (TSGB) in response to ketamine infusion therapy (KIT) and spinal-cord stimulation (SCS) in patients with chronic upper-extremity pain including complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). DESIGN: Retrospective. SETTING: Tertiary hospital single-center. SUBJECTS: Patients who underwent TSGB receiving KIT or SCS within a 3-year window. METHODS: Positive TSGB outcomes were defined as ≥ 2 0-10 Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) score reduction at 2 weeks post-procedure...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Nikolai Bogduk, John MacVicar
BACKGROUND: Zygapophysial joints (Z joints) can be a source of back pain and of neck pain, but the cause of pain is not known. Some authors attribute the pain to osteoarthritis but without citing evidence. OBJECTIVES: The present review was undertaken to determine if there was sufficient evidence of association between spinal pain and osteoarthritis of Z joints to justify osteoarthritis being held to be the cause of pain. The null hypothesis was that osteoarthritis of Z joints does not cause back pain or neck pain...

BACKGROUND: Given the high prevalence of chronic shoulder pain and encouraging early results of terminal sensory articular branch (TSAB) radiofrequency ablation to treat shoulder pain, research is warranted to refine the procedural technique based on updated neuroanatomical knowledge with the goal of further improving patient outcomes. OBJECTIVE: We describe an updated radiofrequency ablation protocol that accounts for varied locations of the TSABs of suprascapular, axillary, subscapular and lateral pectoral nerves within individual patients...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate prevalence of performance-related pain among musicians and compare pain characteristics, associated disability and approach to pain management, between music students and professional musicians. METHODS: A multicenter cross-sectional study was performed in a multi-stage stratified cluster random sample of 585 musicians, stratified by music students (294, among which 234 were at pre-university level and 60 at university level) and professional musicians (291)...

BACKGROUND: The different clinical presentations of fibromyalgia (FMS) may play independent roles in the unclear etiology of cognitive impairments and depressive symptoms seen in this population. Understanding how these clinical presentations are associated with FMS's clinical and neurophysiological aspects is important when developing effective treatments. AIM: To explore the relationship between memory complaints and depressive symptoms, and the different clinical and neurophysiological characteristics of FMS...

BACKGROUND: There is a close association between diet and abdominal pain, however, relationship between inflammatory diet and characteristics of abdominal pain has not been characterized yet. METHODS: This study analyzed baseline data from the UK Biobank, 3-item DHQ-Abdominal Pain Questionnaire (DHQ-3Q) which including abdominal pain in the past three months, severity of abdominal pain, and frequency of abdominal pain, and data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) from 2017 to 2020...

OBJECTIVE: Ultrasound-guided tibial nerve pulsed radiofrequency (US-TN PRF) and fluoroscopy-guided intralesional radiofrequency thermocoagulation (FL-RFT) adjacent to the painful calcaneal spur are two interventions for pain management in painful calcaneal spur (PCS) and plantar fasciitis (PF). This study aimed to compare the effectiveness of the two procedures. DESIGN: A prospective, randomized, single-blind study. SETTING: Single-center pain clinic...

INTRODUCTION: Peripheral nerve stimulation is a neuromodulation modality that is increasing used to treat chronic pain. The permanent peripheral nerve stimulator systems, while easy to place are designed to stay in place and scar at the implantation site. There is a paucity of literature on explantation techniques for peripheral nerve stimulators. METHODS: In this report describe a needle infiltration assisted technique for lead explantation. This novel technique is minimally invasive, cost effective and utilizes a combination of fluoroscopy and ultrasound imaging...

BACKGROUND: Cannabinoids are increasingly used in the management of chronic pain. Although analgesic potential has been demonstrated, cannabinoids interact with a range of bodily functions that are also influenced by chronic pain medications, including opioids. OBJECTIVE: We performed a scoping review of literature on the pharmacodynamic effects following co-administration of cannabinoids and opioids. METHODS: We systematically searched EMBASE, PubMed, and PsycINFO for studies that experimentally investigated the co-effects of cannabinoids and opioids in human-subjects...

OBJECTIVE: Patients with chronic pain disorders, including Temporomandibular Disorders (TMDs) endorse high levels of sleep disturbances, frequently reporting reduced sleep quality. Despite this, little is known about the effect that daytime pain has on the microstructure and macro-architecture of sleep. Therefore, we aimed to examine the extent to which daytime pain sensitivity, measured using quantitative sensory testing (QST), is associated with objective sleep parameters the following night, including sleep architecture and power spectral density, in women with TMD...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the benefit of inpatient treatment in reducing disease activity in patients with CRPS who have exhausted outpatient options. Furthermore, the study sought to identify patient-related outcome variables that predict a reduction in disease activity. METHODS: The primary outcome was disease severity (CRPS Severity Score, range 0-16 points)). Secondary outcomes included depression, anxiety, physical function, pain interference, fatigue, sleep disturbance, and ability to participate in social roles and activities, all of which were assessed using the Promis-29...
