OBJECTIVE: Chronic pain is common in military veterans with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Neurofeedback, or electroencephalograph (EEG) biofeedback, has been associated with lower pain but requires frequent travel to a clinic. The current study examined feasibility and explored effectiveness of neurofeedback delivered with a portable EEG headset linked to an application on a mobile device. DESIGN: Open-label, single-arm clinical trial...

IMPORTANCE: Buprenorphine is a Schedule III analgesic that is recommended as the firstline long-acting opioid for the treatment of chronic pain due to its ceiling effect on respiratory depression, adverse effect profile, and analgesic efficacy. However, prescription drug coverage policies commonly require that patients try and fail multiple Schedule II conventional opioids before approval of on-label use of buprenorphine for chronic pain. DESIGN: A retrospective review was performed looking at coverage of buprenorphine in the forms of Butrans and Belbuca...

OBJECTIVE: Pain is challenging to diagnose and manage in primary care, especially when patients have limited English proficiency (LEP). Little is known about whether LEP patients can provide pain information that is consistent with the process and the content that providers expect in a clinical interaction. We explore how LEP Hmong patients communicate their pain to providers in primary care settings. METHODS: A qualitative study with 67 Hmong participants (63% female and x̄ age = 53...

OBJECTIVE:  This study aims to assess whether acupuncture analgesia's effects are local or systemic and whether there is a dose response for these effects. METHODS:  Twenty-eight healthy volunteers aged 18-45 were randomized to two doses of acupuncture using points closely associated with peripheral nerves in the legs. The lower-dose group involved acupoints overlying the deep peroneal nerve (DP), and the higher-dose involved acupoints overlying the deep peroneal and posterior tibial nerves (DPTN)...

OBJECTIVE: Dyadic coping is a process of coping within couples that is intended not only to support the patient with chronic pain but also to maintain equilibrium in the relationship. This study aims to investigate the effect of patient-perceived and spouse-reported dyadic coping on both the patient and their partner's relationship quality and anxiety, stress, and depression over time. METHODS: One hundred thirty-nine couples, with one partner experiencing chronic pain, participated in this study...

OBJECTIVE: This randomized clinical trial investigated the effects of adding cervico-mandibular manual therapies into an exercise and educational program on clinical outcomes in individuals with tinnitus associated with temporomandibular disorders (TMDs). METHODS: Sixty-one patients with tinnitus attributed to TMD were randomized into the physiotherapy and manual therapy group or physiotherapy alone group. All patients received six sessions of physiotherapy treatment including cranio-cervical and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) exercises, self-massage, and patient education for a period of one month...

METHODS: All PM programs approved for at least four fellows as of December 2017 were identified. Websites of these programs were reviewed to determine the number and gender of current fellows and faculty, and programs were contacted to verify the information...

OBJECTIVE: Drug injections and surgery are popular treatments for knee joint osteoarthritis. However, these treatments are invasive, and new noninvasive treatments with similar or better efficacy are needed. Here, we evaluated the application of 4.4 MHz of pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) as a new treatment. METHODS: Acute arthritis was induced by injection of carrageenan into the intra-articular space of the knee in male rats. At 4.5 hours after arthritis induction, PRF with the treatment protocol of three seconds on and off was applied to the affected knee joint for 20 minutes...

OBJECTIVE: Serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are commonly co-prescribed with opioids for chronic pain. The purpose of this study was to describe pain and mood response to venlafaxine among older adults with chronic low back pain (CLBP) and depression relative to opioid exposure. DESIGN: Secondary analyses were collected from a randomized clinical trial testing a stepped-care approach to comorbid pain and depression in older patients: the Addressing Depression and Pain Together study (ADAPT: 2010-2016)...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to determine if pre- to post-treatment changes in pain-related activity patterns (i.e., overdoing, avoidance, and pacing) were associated with pre- to post-treatment changes in function (i.e., pain interference, psychological function, and physical function) in patients with fibromyalgia syndrome who participated in either an operant learning- or an energy conservation-based training in activity management. METHODS: Sixty-nine patients with fibromyalgia syndrome participated in an activity management treatment (32 in an operant learning group and 37 in an energy conservation group)...

OBJECTIVE: To examine associations between opioid prescriber specialty and patient likelihood of opioid use disorder (OUD), opioid misuse, and opioid overdose. DESIGN: Longitudinal retrospective study using Pennsylvania Medicaid data (2007-2015). METHODS: We constructed an incident cohort of 432,110 enrollees initiating prescription opioid use without a history of OUD or overdose six months before opioid initiation. We attributed patients to one of 10 specialties using the first opioid prescriber's specialty or, alternatively, the specialty of the dominant prescriber writing the majority of the patient's opioid prescriptions...
