Conclusions: Half of this group of young children with CP were reported to have pain. Pain restricted the children's everyday lives and seemed to be under-treated. If pain can be addressed early, the children's everyday lives are likely to be improved. Implications for rehabilitation There is a need to early identify and treat pain in young children. Important to discuss pain with parents irrespectively of the child's age and severity level. Pain interference assessment gives valuable information. Early treatment of pain might improve children's everyday life. PMID: 31526138 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a common, often debilitating mental health condition that occurs in some people who have experienced trauma. It can have a negative impact on mood, mimicking depression, and is characterized by petrifying episodes in which affected people re-experience trauma. New research suggests psychotherapy may provide a long-lasting reduction of distressing symptoms. Over the course of a lifetime, many people directly experience or witness trauma, such as sexual assault, violence, or natural disasters. Experts estimate that 10% to 20% of these people will experience acute (short-term) PTSD. So...

Purpose of review Vomiting can be a primary symptom or associated with various other functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs). The purpose of this review was to discuss the evidence for psychological treatments for vomiting in pediatric FGID. Recent findings Vomiting of functional origin is an increasingly recognized symptom among children and adolescents. It is highly aversive and associated with disability and poor quality of life. Cognitive behavioral therapy, lifestyle modification (especially sleep), diaphragmatic breathing, and hypnosis can be helpful in preventing vomiting episodes and reducing disability....

CONCLUSIONS: Well-powered studies to truly detect pillow impact on waking symptoms and sleep quality require 400+ symptomatic subjects. CLINICAL REHABILITATION IMPACT: It has previously been reported that using a latex or polyester pillow significantly improves waking cervical symptoms in the general population. This pilot study did not replicate these results in people with known cervical spine degeneration. PMID: 31489809 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Purpose Previous research has identified seizures, intellectual disability, learning disability, pervasive developmental disorder, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder as coexisting disabilities frequently seen in children who stutter (CWS). The observation that those conditions are affected by sleep has incited the present study, which aimed to explore if sleep problems are also more frequent in CWS. Method Data was obtained from the 2012 National Health Interview Survey. Children included in the analysis were those whose caregivers answered definitively whether or not the sample child stuttered ...

CONCLUSION: These studies underscore the importance of preventing and/or minimizing disturbances due to shift work. This may be achieved through various strategies, such as the employer's commitment to adopt ergonomic criteria in shift design and to implement work-environment interventions like controlled bright light. Health personnel is of pivotal importance to detect potential factors of intolerance to shift work or early symptoms of SWD. Additional and improved studies are needed to further evaluate the effectiveness and safety of both pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions. PMID: 31471831 [PubMed -...

This report addresses the potential clinical relevance of circadian MT rhythms in relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS) patients. The study sample comprised of fifty-five RRMS patients and fifty age- and sex-matched healthy control (HC) subjects. Circadian salivary MT was measured non-invasively at 12 time points over day in participants ’ home environment. 6-Hydroxy-melatoninsulfate (MT sulfate) concentration in night-time urine was assessed as an estimate for nocturnal MT. Ratings for neurological disability, health-related quality of life (HrQoL), fatigue, depressive symptoms and sleep patterns were additionally obtained....
