Sleep therapy may help ease knee pain troubles for some
Patients with knee osteoarthritis and insomnia may be less troubled by joint pain after they get treatment to help them sleep better, a recent study suggests.
Conclusion Hip pain patients with radiographs demonstrating minimal to no hip arthritis with and without hip deformity experience significant contributory yet modifiable disorders of sleep and anxiety. If recognized early in presentation, treatment of insomnia and anxiety ultimately will improve outcomes for hip patients treated either conservatively or surgically for their hip disorder.

Conclusion Hip pain patients with radiographs demonstrating minimal to no hip arthritis with and without hip deformity experience significant cofounding yet modifiable disorders of sleep and anxiety. If recognized early in presentation, treatment of insomnia and anxiety ultimately will improve outcomes for hip patients treated conservatively or surgically for their hip disorder.
This study examined if interventions targeting sleep found to be effective in improving sleep in KOA also reduce pain catastrophizing measured as a trait through the pain catastrophizing scale and measured as a daytime and nocturnal state through daily diaries. Secondary analyses were conducted on data collected as part of a randomized controlled trial assessing the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia in patients with KOA at 5 different time points: pretreatment, midtreatment and posttreatment and at 3- and 6-month follow-up. One hundred patients diagnosed with KOA and insomnia were randomized to rec...

Insomnia is common among chronic pain (CP) patients, and is linked with greater clinical pain and impaired functioning. Poor sleep habits contribute to chronic insomnia, and behavioral theory postulates that CP patients may develop maladaptive sleep habits to cope with pain, thus perpetuating insomnia, independently from pain. However, little is known about how pain-related sleep behaviors uniquely impact insomnia and pain outcomes among patients with CP. We developed the Sleep and Pain Behaviors Survey (SPBS), comprised of 3 items measuring pain-specific sleep behaviors (i.e., lying down/resting during the day due to pain...
ConclusionThese findings highlight the importance of assessing sleep efficiency, CS, and catastrophizing in chronic pain patients and have important clinical implications for treatment planning.

(Reuters Health) - People suffering from osteoarthritis, the most common type of joint inflammation, are more likely to have knee pain when they also have difficulty getting enough sleep, a study suggests.
