AbstractBakker et al found a change in the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings in 29 of 188 patients, when the examination was repeated at three months and at one year (1). The patients were all being investigated on account of back pain, with presumably varying degrees of concern about the possibility of inflammatory spondyloarthritis.Twelve (6.8%) patients were negative at the initial examination but became positive on subsequent testing. A percentage that was lower, but not dissimilar to Van Onna et al's report of 15% at two years (2).

ConclusionsIn this model, compared with IPG SCS or with CMM, Wireless SCS is a superior strategy.
Recently, clinicians have been using repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for treating various pain conditions. This systematic narrative review aimed to examine the use and efficacy of rTMS for controlling various pain conditions. A PubMed search was conducted for articles that were published until June 7, 2019 and used rTMS for pain alleviation. The key search phrase for identifying potentially relevant articles was (repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation AND pain). The following inclusion criteria were applied for article selection: (1) patients with pain, (2) rTMS was applied for pain management, a...
Baseline characteristics of patients low back pain differ substantially between care settings, but it is largely unknown whether predictors are of equal importance across settings. The aim of this study was to investigate whether 8 known predictors relate differently to outcomes in chiropractic practice and in general practice and to which degree these factors may be helpful in selecting patients benefiting more from one setting or the other.
The purpose of this study was to conduct a systematic review of studies to determine whether sitting time measured objectively (by laboratory controlled time trial, direct observation, or wearable sensor) is associated with the immediate increase in low back pain (LBP) (determined by pain scale rating) in people>18 years of age.
Conclusion5R-STS performance differs according to the etiology of back and leg pain, even after adjustment for demographic covariates. In combination with machine learning algorithms, OFI can be used to infer the etiology of spinal back and leg pain with accuracy comparable to other diagnostic tests used in clinical examination.Graphic abstractThese slides can be retrieved under Electronic Supplementary Material.
ConclusionImprovement in stability measures were reported in studies comparing manual therapy in the short term, but not long-term follow-up. There was no clear association between significant pain reduction and measures of stability. Further prospective studies are recommended to investigate whether manual therapies should be part of an integrative healthcare plan for risk of falls management and when a transition from manual therapy to more active interventions should occur for long term management.
