"If You Don't Keep Going, You're Gonna Die.": Helplessness and Perseverance Among Older Adults Living With Chronic Low Back Pain.

This study contributes a vivid illustration of older adults' CLBP illness experiences that are substantially underpinned by helplessness, depression, and a drive to continue thriving in old age. Practice implications include the need for clinic-based mood and suicide assessment. PMID: 33033826 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We describe the most highly recommended generic and disease-specific PRO tools in SCD and discuss the challenges of incorporating them in clinical practice. EXPERT OPINION: PRO measures are essential to incorporate into SCD clinical trials either as primary or secondary outcomes. The use of PRO measures in SCD facilitates a patient-centered approach, which is likely to lead to improved outcomes. Significant challenges remain in adapting PRO tools to routine clinical use and in developing countries. PMID: 33034214 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Currently in fellowship doing bread/butter procedures (MBB, epidurals, PNB, few SCS/PNS trials, etc.) and just interviewed at a private practice spot where they do a lot of procedures that I will have not done any training in prior to graduating (e.g. IT pump, SI fusion, Vertiflex, Kypho, MILD, Discectomy, lots of SCS/PNS trials etc) and significant amount of "OR pain procedures" at a very busy practice seeing 30-40 pts/day - how many of you are commonly performing these procedures and are... private practice concern

Pain has both nociceptive (sensory) and emotional (affective) components (IASP 2016). CLBP remains a significant medical burden; annual prevalence is 15%-45% (Manchikanti et al. 2009). Current pain treatments are primarily analgesic (e.g. opioids) with serious side effects. Limited options (cognitive behavioral therapy [CBT], biofeedback) exist to address the affective component, which causes significant disability and psychiatric sequelae of fear avoidance, anxiety, depression, and suicide. The emerging neuromodulation technique, tDCS, has been applied to the sensory component of pain.
