Study Explores the Molecular Basis of Chronic Pain Following Nerve Injury
Researchers identifiy a key molecule, dual leucine zipper kinase (DLK), that controls pathways leading to chronic neuropathic pain following nerve injury.
Conclusion. These results are not consistent with the literature on adults and could lead to modified therapeutic management of NSCLBP in children and adolescents. Level of Evidence: 3
Conclusion. Preoperative COT is a modifiable risk factor for complications, readmission, adverse events, and increased costs after one- or two-level PLF. Level of Evidence: 3
A study linking silicone gel-filled breast implants with several rare diseases should be viewed with caution, according to FDA. The authors of the study, published last week in the Annals of Surgery, say they looked at data from nearly 100,000 breast implant procedures gleaned from FDA-mandated postmarket studies for implants made by Johnson &Johnson's Mentor business, and by Allergan. The analysis showed that silicone implants are associated with higher rates ofÂ Â SjÃ¶gren syndrome, scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis, stillbirth, and melanoma. The researchers reported that 56% of the ...
CONCLUSION: Consumption of a plant-based diet produced positive improvements in chronic pain and function. Interprofessional collaboration between physical therapists and registered dietitian nutritionists, along with other healthcare practitioners, can encourage and promote diet interventions that positively affect chronic pain.

CONCLUSIONS: While all participants benefitted from the yoga intervention, the degree to which they benefitted varied. Additionally, they did not experience a consistent rate of reduction in NPI - their NPI fluctuated, either increasing and then decreasing, or vice-versa. We comment on the clinical and research implications of our findings. PMID: 30219458 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: Carpellum Mali comp. and Kalium aceticum comp. seem to have been helpful in the case presented here. Experiences with theses remedies in recurrent diverticulitis should be collected to determine whether it would be meaningful to carry out further investigations. PMID: 30219450 [PubMed - in process]
Here is our vision: To provide a credible and reliable channel through which clinical pain scientists can bring their scientific discoveries straight into the real world. We reckon that the communication bit of science is the bit that often drags the chain of knowledge development and transfer. We want to communicate our science better. We want to side-step, or perhaps leap-frog, the arduous journey that new discoveries make before they have the opportunity to influence the real world. We want people to share in our fascination with the fearful and wonderful complexity of the human; we want people to understand the scienti...

(University of Massachusetts at Amherst) A major shift in practice by the VA means that therapies such as meditation and yoga are being offered to VA patients as non-drug approaches for pain management, says Elizabeth Evans of UMass Amherst, who studied their use by gender among veterans with chronic musculoskeletal pain.
