Le Pub Home Brew
Now I’m the kinda woman who enjoys a bevvie or two – and I do love to talk! Combine them both with my favourite topic of pain, and you end up with Le Pub Home brew…and I’m speaking THIS SATURDAY!! My topic? Let’s stop focusing on pain, because we have a few elephants in the room we need to discuss. Come and join me as I poke and prod at assumptions made about why people come asking for help with their pain, why clinicians often focus on the wrong thing, why we need to listen to the messages buried beneath the “take my pain away” call – and why the skills clinicians have HAD to draw on during lockdown might just well be the Most Important Skills they have (psssst! Call them “soft skills” at your peril!). I might wander into some philosophy, some sociology, and probably I’ll tread on some toes and push my own agenda to have more people recognise what occupational therapists already know about context, meaning, values and being flexible. ’nuff said: click on the link below and get in on the conversation (BYO home brew) https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/stop-focusing-on-pain-tickets-108199724288 Register on Eventbrite

CONCLUSIONS: To avoid running-related injuries, runners should be careful when increasing weekly mileage. Moreover, runners with previous exercise experience may need to approach running more cautiously. Setting goals and pursuing longer-distance running events may be motivating, but at the same time, can increase the risk of running-related injuries.

Authors: Sakamoto T, Ishio Y, Ishida Y, Mogi K, Kikusui T Abstract Deprivation of maternal care has been associated with higher pain sensitivity in offspring. In the present study, we hypothesized that the maternal licking/grooming behavior was an important factor for the development of the pain regulatory system. To test this hypothesis, we used male F2 offspring of early-weaned (EW) F1 mother mice that exhibit lower frequency of licking/grooming behavior. The formalin test revealed that F2 offspring of EW F1 dams showed significantly higher pain behavior than F2 offspring of normally-weaned (NW) F1 dams. We found...
