Chronic pain is among the most common reasons for seeking medical attention.

It is a prevalent problem among residents in the nursing home. Non-pharmacologic therapies are the most preferred treatment for chronic pain as pharmacological therapies, such as opioids, have proven to be less effective and associated with numerous side effects among older adults.

Authors: Biederman J, DiSalvo M, Woodworth KY, Fried R, Uchida M, Biederman I, Spencer TJ, Surman C, Faraone SV Abstract BACKGROUND.: A growing body of research suggests that deficient emotional self-regulation (DESR) is common and morbid among attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) patients. The main aim of the present study was to assess whether high and low levels of DESR in adult ADHD patients can be operationalized and whether they are clinically useful. METHODS.: A total of 441 newly referred 18- to 55-year-old adults of both sexes with Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders: Fifth...
