Effects of Photobiomodulation Therapy Combined with Exercise in Patients Who Have Chronic Low Back Pain: Protocol for a Randomized Controlled Trial

CONCLUSIONS AND POTENTIAL IMPACT: The findings will help determine whether adding PBMT to a physical therapist-supervised exercise protocol is more effective than the exercise protocol alone for persistent LBP. This study has the potential to guide clinical practice toward innovative ways of providing health care.PMID:34499157 | DOI:10.1093/ptj/pzab201

Pain-related injustice appraisals are a key determinant of outcomes in chronic low back pain (CLBP) [78,79] and have been defined according to appraisals of severity and irreparability of loss, externalized blame, and unfairness [73]. The principal measure of pain-related injustice appraisal is the Injustice Experience Questionnaire (IEQ) [73], first developed in Canada [73]. Quantitative findings link elevated injustice appraisal with greater ongoing pain intensity, perceived disability, and worse treatment and psychosocial outcomes across a variety of musculoskeletal conditions [22,23,68-71,74,77,83].

This study investigated the limitations and restrictions in the most relevant brief ICF core set categories for chronic low back pain (cLBP) as automatically predicted from routinely measured outcomes using a novel, validated mapping algorithm. Materials and Methods: Of 2718 cLBP patients recruited, data from 1541 (64% females) were available from before and at the end of 6 months comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation. Assessments included the Roland Morris Disability Questionnaire (RMDQ) and Pain Disability Index (PDI) questionnaires, the percentage of patients with predicted limitations and restrictions in impor...

AbstractPurposeTo evaluate the safety and 2-year follow-up clinical outcomes of transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) using imipenem/cilastatin sodium for chronic low back pain resistant to conservative treatment.Materials and MethodsA retrospective review identified 14 patients who underwent TAE for chronic low back pain between October 2017 and August 2018. Patients with low back pain related to the facet or sacroiliac joint, lasting  ≥ 6 months, refractory to ≥ 3 months of conservative treatment were eligible for TAE. Each patient received embolization of feeding arteries ...

Conclusion] SEMG topographic variables are closely associated with changes in pain score in patients with CLBP after IFC treatment. The RMSD of RA at flexion can be used as an objective marker in IFC treatment efficacy evaluation.PMID:34658523 | PMC:PMC8516599 | DOI:10.1589/jpts.33.772
