Evaluation of the fear avoidance behavior after traumatic brain injury questionnaire - Snell D, Siegert RJ, Debert CT, Cairncross M, Silverberg ND.

Fear avoidance behavior is related to symptom persistence and disability in various health conditions, such as chronic pain. Fear avoidance behavior may also impact recovery from mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI), but no measure of this construct has been...

Conclusions: CRF denervation of the SIJ can safely elicit pain and disability relief, and reduce opioid use, regardless of intervention success. Future studies may support CRF denervation as a dependable therapy to alleviate opioid use in patients with SIJ-derived LBP and show that opioid use measurements can be a surrogate indicator of pain.

Authors: Yalçinkaya G, Kara B, Arda MN Abstract BACKGROUND/AIM: Current clinical guidelines recommend to use both clinical and self-reported measurements for evaluation of chronic neck pain. Among the self-reported outcomes, Neck Disability Index and Patient Specific Functional Scale are the most widely used and recommended instruments. The purpose of our study was to determine the test-retest reliability and validity of Patient Specific Functional Scale which was not validated in Turkish language previously. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Translation and adaptation process had conducted according to the Beaton ...

This study aimed to assess clinical outcomes in patients who required syndesmosis fixation in the presence of arthroscopically proven instability, the hypothesis being that a delay to treatment would be associated with worse function.MethodA retrospective cohort study was performed of patients with dynamic instability requiring fixation between the years of 2010 –2016. The procedures were performed by two foot and ankle fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeons, over three hospital sites. Patients were classified into three groups based on the time since injury to surgery, acute syndesmotic injury (  6 mont...

ConclusionsWe did not detect a difference in patient outcomes using the dorsal longitudinal mini-arthrotomy; however, it may prevent incongruent joint reconstruction since all cases occurred in Group 1. In the absence of intraoperative CT scan, longitudinal mini-arthrotomy may be used to enhance visualization and achieve joint surface reconstruction.

Conclusion: The relatively high prevalence of symptoms of the cervical spine dysfunction, chronic pain, stress, and neck disability among young people may indicate that numerous spinal disorders identified in dentists result not only from their profession, in which spine is significantly overloaded, but also individual predispositions including biopsychosocial profile and the changing lifestyle habits of young people.

Chronic tension type headache (CTTH) is one of the common cause of hospital visits among adolescents and adults. Chronic tension type headache produces pain, sleep disturbances, and disability among patients leading to a poor quality of life. Knowledge pattern of headache and various associated factors will aid appropriate management.

Conclusions: Participation in community-based exercise opportunities among adults living with chronic pain may be influenced by accessibility, intrinsic factors, social factors, and program factors. Results provide a foundation of understanding to develop person-centered community-based exercise opportunities that are tailored to meet the preferences of this population.Implications for RehabilitationAlthough community-based exercise is commonly recommended as part of ongoing self-management of chronic pain, there is limited research exploring perspectives towards community-based exercise opportunities from the perspective ...

Chronic pain is known to alter the brain's network dynamics. These dynamics are often demonstrated by identifying alterations in the brain network topology. A common approach used for this purpose is graph theory. To date, little is known on how these potentially altered networks in chronic pain relate to the symptoms reported by these patients. Here, we applied a graph theoretical approach to identify network changes in patients suffering from chronic neck pain, a group that is often neglected in chronic pain research. Participants with chronic traumatic and nontraumatic neck pain were compared to healthy pain-free contro...

Objective The aim of the study was to evaluate the efficacy of dextrose prolotherapy in the treatment of chronic resistant plantar fasciitis through comparison with a control group. Design In this double-blind, randomized, controlled study, the patients were divided into two groups. The prolotherapy group (n = 30) was administered 5 ml of 30% dextrose, 4 ml of saline, and 1 ml of 2% lidocaine mixture (15% dextrose solution) and the control group was given 9 ml of saline and 1 ml of 2% lidocaine mixture twice at a 3-wk interval. During the 15-wk follow-up period, pain intensity was measured using the visual analog scal...
