Does age affect the relationship between pain and disability? : a descriptive study in individuals suffering from chronic low back pain
Abstract : Background: Previous studies have revealed a weak to moderate relationship between pain and disability in individuals suffering from low back pain (LBP). However, to our knowledge, no studies have evaluated if ...
Re: Sluka KA, Bjordal JM, Marchand S, Rakel BA. What makes transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation work? Making sense of the mixed results in the clinical literature
Abstract : We read the article recently published by Sluka and colleagues1 in PTJ with great interest. The elements raised by the authors shed important light on the mixed results obtained in the literature concerning the ...
Effect of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy on experimental pain : a double-blind, randomized study in healthy young adults
Abstract : Past studies have suggested that pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy can decrease pain. To date, however, it remains difficult to determine if the analgesic effect observed in patients are attributable ...
Simple things matter! : how reassurance and pain management strategies can improve outcomes in physiotherapy : a case report
Abstract : Psychological barriers to rehabilitation are generally seen as preexisting patient traits that clinicians are asked to evaluate and modify. In the present case report, we provide evidence that these barriers can ...
Interactions between pain and the motor cortex : insights from research on phantom limb pain and complex regional pain syndrome
Abstract : Purpose: Pain is a significantly disabling problem that often interacts with other deficits during the rehabilitation process. The aim of this paper is to review evidence on interactions between pain and the ...
High- and low-frequency transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation does not reduce experimental pain in elderly individuals
Abstract : Despite its widespread clinical use, the efficacy of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) remains poorly documented in elderly individuals. In this randomized, double-blind crossover study, we ...
Unravelling the effect of experimental pain on the corticomotor system using transcranial magnetic stimulation and electroencephalography.
Abstract : The interaction between pain and the motor system is well-known, with past studies showing that pain can alter corticomotor excitability and have deleterious effects on motor learning. The aim of this study was ...
Unpredictable pain timings lead to greater pain when people are highly intolerant of uncertainty
Abstract : Background and purpose: Many psychological factors are known to influence pain perception. Amongthem, intolerance of uncertainty (IU) may play a key modulating role in situations where uncertaintyprevails, ...
