One of the most pervasive descriptions of what it is like to live with persistent pain is the loss of sense of self. Time after time in qualitative research we read about people feeling they’re in “limbo land”, losing confidence that they can do what matters in their lives, feeling stigmatised and isolated – not themselves any more. An in-depth meta-ethnography of qualitative research showed that pain undermined participation, ability to carry out daily activities, stymied a sense of the future, and intruded on the sense of self (MacNeela, Doyle, O’Gorman, Ruane &McGuire, 2015). To unde...

In conclusion; the present study provides a variety of dynamic and isometric exercises; where muscle activity values and tolerability can be used as guide to design evidence-based exercise programs for outpatients with NSCLBP.

To retrospectively investigate trunk-pelvis kinematic outcomes among persons with unilateral transtibial and transfemoral limb loss with time from initial independent ambulation with a prosthesis, while secondarily describing self-reported presence and intensity of low back pain. Over time, increasing trunk-pelvis range of motion and decreasing trunk-pelvis coordination with increasing presence and/or intensity of low back pain were hypothesized. Additionally, less trunk-pelvis range of motion and more trunk-pelvis coordination for persons with more distal limb loss was hypothesized.

CONCLUSION: The current study indicates that knee muscle strength variables, resulting from an isokinetic testing, have the potential to discriminate between soccer players with and without a history of low back pain. However, low back pain is a multidimensional phenomenon and knee muscle strength or imbalance alone cannot be expected to explain low back pain. PMID: 31524139 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Roberts SB, Calligeros K, Tsirikos AI Abstract This narrative review will summarise a clinical approach to the investigation of back pain in children and adolescent patients, including a discussion of the epidemiology, presentation, investigation and clinical management of back pain in children and adolescents. This will assist the prompt and accurate diagnosis of spinal disorders that require significant medical intervention. Existing evidence suggests a relatively high incidence of non-specific back pain among young people; 27-48% of presentations of back pain in children and adolescents are attributed t...

CONCLUSIONS: Achieved research highlights the importance of a multifactorial approach to pain management and the enormous significance of pain catastrophizing in patients with low back pain. PMID: 31524136 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion. Patients with symptomatic LBP who underwent low-pressure PD, but who did not undergo a subsequent spinal fusion surgery, developed disc degeneration and new disc herniations at a similar rate to corresponding discs in matched control patients. Level of Evidence: 3

Study Design. Prospective research in middle-aged and elderly people. Objective. To investigate low back pain (LBP) and neuropathic pain (NeP); spinal alignment and range of motion (ROM); spinal degenerative changes in plain radiography; osteoporosis; muscle strength; and physical ability as possible risk factors for poor quality of life (QOL). Summary of Background Data. The aging of society has led to an increase in elderly people with chronic pain, including LBP and NeP. However, there has been no analysis of NeP and spinal sagittal alignment as potential risk factors for decreased QOL in the healthy general pop...

Study Design. Prospective study. Objective. Determine risk factors and consider impact of low back pain for medical students. Summary of Background Data. Low back pain (LBP) is one of the most prevalent complaints among students. The vulnerability of medical students due to stress and numerous hours of studying and training makes them at risk of LBP. Methods. We submitted an online self-administered modified version of the Standardized Nordic Questionnaire to 1800 medical students from 2nd to 6th year from December 2017 to March 2018. Results. A total of 1243/1800 (68.9%) students responded to our survey. Mea...

Rosenbaum J Abstract PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is a serious and fairly frequent disorder with prevalence increasing with age which often results in a disability. The surgical procedures are often very risky due to the greater age of patients with severe stenosis and their comorbidities. The study aimed to assess the functional outcomes and complications in patients who underwent surgical treatment for LSS at one year postoperatively and to identify the differences in the functional outcomes, if any, in dependence on the number of operated segments. MATERIAL AND METHODS It was a prospective ...
