AbstractGlobally, chronic pain is a major therapeutic challenge and affects more than 15% of the population. As patients with painful terminal diseases may face unbearable pain, there is a need for more potent analgesics. Although opioid-based therapeutic agents received attention to manage severe pain, their adverse drug effects and mortality rate associated with opioids overdose are the major concerns. Evidences from clinical trials showed therapeutic benefits of cannabis, especially delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabinoids reduced neuropathic pain intensity in various conditions. Also, there are reports on using co...

Back in May, Bruce Schoneboom wrapped up his appointment to the HHS Pain Management Best Practices Inter-Agency Task Force. The group determined best practices for managing chronic and acute pain—and addressed judicious prescribing of opioids. If you didn’t know: The CDC reports there are 192 overdose deaths in the U.S. every day. Forty percent of The post Dr. Bruce Schoneboom and the HHS Pain Task Force appeared first on Johns Hopkins Nursing Magazine.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the potential analgesic action of 8% capsaicin cream for topical use in patients with myofascial pain syndrome. METHODS: Initially, cream formulations of PLA (Placebo) and CPS (Capsaicin 8%) were developed and approved according to the current requirements of the health authority agency. The 40 participating patients were randomly assigned to the PLA and CPS groups in a double-blind fashion. Before the creams were topically administered, according to the allocation group, the local anesthetic was used for a period of 50minutes directly in the area of interest. The cream was a...

A generator produces a high-frequency current that passes from an electrode to an earthing plate. The electromagnetic field created around the tip of the electrode then has an effect on the surrounding nervous tissue resulting in pain relief.

Baranidharan, Ibrahim MohamedAbstractNeuropathic pain is a well-recognized chronic pain condition. This can have a significant impact in patients' quality of life. Neuromodulation is defined by the International Neuromodulation Society as ‘the therapeutic alteration of activity in the central or peripheral nervous system either electrically or pharmacologically’. Electrical stimulation can be performed at the motor cortex, deep brain, spinal cord, dorsal root ganglion, peripheral nerve and peripheral...

CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that inhibitory effects of bPNS on bladder pain could be suppressed in subjects receiving benzodiazepine therapy, suggesting that potential clinical testing of pudendal nerve stimulation for the treatment of painful bladder syndromes may be confounded by the use of benzodiazepines. Clinical assessment of other forms of neuromodulation should also be screened for impacts of benzodiazepines. PMID: 31490256 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
