Cross-Cultural Adaptation, Reliability and Validity of the Turkish Version of Patient-Specific Functional Scale in Patients with Chronic Neck Pain.

Cross-Cultural Adaptation, Reliability and Validity of the Turkish Version of Patient-Specific Functional Scale in Patients with Chronic Neck Pain. Turk J Med Sci. 2020 Mar 31;: 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 et al. Sociodemographic data, Turkish version of Patient-Specific Functional Scale and Neck Disability Index were recorded at the initial assessment. Retest assessment was produced for reliability analyses and intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC3,2) was determined. The correlations between Patient-Specific Functional Scale and Neck Disability Index and hypothesis testing was examined for the convergent and construct validity analysis. RESULTS: The final form was completed by 110 chronic neck pain patients (Male:33; mean ages:43.13±13.75 years, Female:77; mean ages:44.45±14.38). Test-retest reliability of Patient-Specific Functional Scale was found g...

AbstractBackgroundClinical trials have shown the safety and clinical superiority of erenumab compared to placebo in chronic migraine (CM). The aim of this analysis is to evaluate the effectiveness and tolerability of erenumab in a real-world setting in patients with refractory CM.MethodsThis is a prospective single centre real-world audit conducted in patients with CM with and without medication overuse, refractory to established preventive medications, who received monthly erenumab for 6 months.ResultsOf 164 patients treated, 162 patients (female  = 135, mean age 46 ± 14.3 years o...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe purpose of this review is to summarize the role of avoidance behavior in headache-related disability and overview relevant clinical implications.Recent FindingsAvoidance occupies a central role in contemporary psychological perspectives on headache disorders and other chronic pain conditions. Several cognitive constructs of relevance to headache are influenced and maintained by avoidance behavior. A growing body of literature attests to the notion that avoidance of headache triggers, of stimuli that exacerbate headache, and of broader life domains can negatively affect headache progression, dis...

This study aimed to assess the efficacy of suprascapular nerve block for the management of shoulder pain in patients with motor neurone disease. METHODS: A total of 27 patients with motor neurone disease and shoulder pain were offered a suprascapular nerve block. Ten of these patients had bilateral shoulder pain and both were injected, making a total of 37 shoulders. The patients were followed up for a total of 3 months, or until death. Shoulder pain was measured using the pain scale (out of 100) of the shoulder pain and disability index and compared with baseline scores and a placebo control group from an earl...

CONCLUSIONS: The ODI appears to be a similarly unidimensional and internally consistent questionnaire in both genders without any substantial variability in the items' difficulty and discrimination. CLINICAL REHABILITATION IMPACT: The ODI produces psychometrically similar results in both genders. Small and clinically hardly significant gender-related differences in the properties of ODI can be neglected. PMID: 32452663 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions Changes in several measures of shoulder pain and function occurred after the home exercise program intervention, although the magnitude of changes was only significantly greater than those of the education-only control condition group for two measures. Significant changes in supraspinatus pathology were not detected with quantitative ultrasound metrics.
