ConclusionsAlmost one quarter of study participants were not actively engaged in their spine care. Key barriers likely to influence uptake of SMS among patients were identified and used to inform the design of a theory-based KT intervention to increase their participation level. The proposed multi-component KT intervention may be an effective strategy to optimize the quality of spine pain care and improve patients ’ health-outcomes.

The TV ad promises pain relief for knee osteoarthritis, the source of most of the 600,000 knee replacement surgeries performed in the US each year. A man in a bowling alley winces with pain. He nearly falls as he rolls a ball into the gutter. (Did I mention the arrow sticking out of his knee?) “Knee acting up again?” asks his buddy, clearly concerned. When pain pills don’t seem to help, his buddy suggests a procedure called Coolief for knee osteoarthritis. “I had it done six months ago,” says the bowling buddy. “And the best part is that it lasts up to one year.” What is Coolief? C...

CONCLUSIONS: One year after elective cervical spine surgery, patients with preoperative opioid use were significantly more likely to report ongoing opioid use. However, patients in both groups reported similar improvements in patient-reported outcomes and satisfaction with pain relief. Interventions targeted at decreasing opioid use may need to focus on patient factors such as preoperative opioid use or duration of symptoms before surgery.

This article will review this evidence in the context of its implications for pain. We first provide a brief overview of CB1R's role in the regulation of nociception, followed by a review of the evidence that the peripheral endocannabinoid system modulates nociception. We then look in detail at regulation of central-mediated analgesia, followed up with evidence that cannabinoidmediated modulation of pain involves modulation of GABAergic and glutamatergic neurotransmission in key brain regions. Finally, we discuss cannabinoid action on non-neuronal cells in the context of inflammation and direct modulation of neurons. This ...

Authors: Chang MC, Lee DG Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: We evaluated the effect of caudal epidural pulsed radiofrequency stimulation in patients with chronic lumbosacral radicular pain due to postlumbar surgery syndrome who were unresponsive to at least two epidural steroid injections through the interlaminar, transforaminal, or caudal route. METHODS: We recruited 25 patients with chronic persistent radicular pain in one or both legs (⩾ 4 on the Numeric Rating Scale [NRS]) despite spinal surgery. They were unresponsive to at least two epidural steroid injections. We retrospectively conducted this study. ...
