The present study was planned to compare the efficacy of the combination of pregabalin plus ıv ibuprofen. METHODS: 58 patients were included in this prospective, randomized, double-blinded study. The pregabalin group (Group P, n = 29) received 150 mg pregabalin, the pregabalin plus ibuprofen group (Gropu PI, n = 29) received 150 mg pregabalin and 400mg ıv ibuprofen before surgery. Postop...

To report successful results with non-pharmacological pain management, and scoliotic curvature reduction utilizing spinal manipulation and adjunct therapies, in a case of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. It is also important to enhance awareness to spine care clinicians regarding the utilization of spinal manipulation and adjunctive therapies in the management of scoliosis, and musculoskeletal pain.

Chronic shoulder pain is a common after spinal cord impairment (SCI) and limits community mobility. This leads to loss of independence and reduced quality of life. Evidence suggests that exercises can help reduce shoulder pain, however, cost, expertise and transport barriers can limit access to treatment services. Objective: to translate evidence-based exercise principles in to an acceptable, usable and persuasive web-based tool to support self-management of shoulder pain in people living with SCI.

Clinicians at Brigham and Women’s Hospital published a paper in the December issue of Anesthesia &Analgesia showing that digital pills successfully monitored patients taking opioids following an injury. To track the participants’ opioid use, researchers used etectRx‘s ID-Cap system, which includes a capsule embedded with an ingestible sensor. Get the full story at our sister site, Drug Delivery Business News. The post Using digital pills, researchers find patients consume fewer opioids than expected appeared first on MassDevice.

Abstract Patients with fibromyalgia (FM) experience increased lifetime levels of psychosocial adversity, trauma, and emotional conflict. To address these risk factors, we developed emotion awareness and expression therapy (EAET) and tested its benefits against an active control condition, FM education, and the field's gold standard intervention for FM, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for symptom management. Adults with FM (N = 230) formed 40 treatment groups, which were randomized to EAET, CBT, or education and given 8, 90-minute sessions. Patient-reported outcomes were assessed at baseline, posttreatment, and 6-month...

This study assessed whether intrathecal MMG22 also is effective in reducing pain of neuropathic origin. Furthermore, we theorized that MMG22 should reduce hyperalgesia in nerve-injured mice in a manner consistent with a synergistic interaction between MOR and mGluR5. Several weeks after spared nerve injury, tactile hypersensitivity was reversed in mice by the intrathecal injection of MMG22 (0.01-10 nmol) but also by its shorter spacer analog, MMG10, with similar potency. The potencies of the bivalent ligands were 10- to 14-fold higher than those of the compounds upon which the bivalent structure was based, the MOR agonist ...
