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, ...
Can we quickly and thoroughly assess pain with the PACSLAC-II? : a convergent validity study in long-term care residents suffering from dementia.
Abstract : A previous study found that the modified version of the Pain Assessment Checklist for Seniors with Limited Ability to Communicate (PACSLAC-II) is a valid tool to assess pain in elderly individuals suffering from ...
Combining transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation with therapeutic exercise to reduce pain in an elderly population: a pilot study
Purpose: Chronic pain is a highly prevalent and debilitating condition, and there is a pressing need to find safe, effective and affordable treatments to tackle this public health issue. This pilot study aimed to assess ...
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 ...
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 ...

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation and placebo analgesia: is the effect the same for young and older individuals?
Abstract: Purpose: Placebo analgesia refers to a perceived reduction in pain intensity following the administration of a simulated or otherwise medically ineffective treatment. Previous studies have shown that many factors ...
Can we improve pain and sleep in elderly individuals with transcranial direct current stimulation? : results from a randomized controlled pilot study
Abstract : Background: The prevalence of chronic pain and sleep disturbances substantially increases with age. Pharmacotherapy remains the primary treatment option for these health issues. However, side effects and drug ...
Altered autonomic nervous system reactivity to pain in trigeminal neuralgia
BACKGROUND: In the last two decades, there has been increasing evidence to suggest that trigeminal neuralgia (TN) may be linked to a dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The aim of the present study was to ...
