The influence of treatment expectations on clinical outcomes and cortisol levels in patients with chronic neck pain: an experimental study
AbstractBackgroundThe role of contextual factors like pre ‐existing treatment expectations has been established. However, the effect of verbally‐delivered treatment expectations in patient‐therapist communication has not been considered, nor the role of cortisol changes within the placebo/nocebo response in people with chronic neck pain.ObjectiveTo examine the effect of verbally delivered treatment expectations on clinical outcomesin physical therapy practice and to determine if changes in cortisol levels are associated to changes in neck pain and disability.MethodsEighty ‐three patients with chronic neck pain were...

Anchoring the Numeric Pain Scale Changes Pain Intensity Reports in Patients With Chronic But Not With Acute Pain
AbstractBackgroundDespite enormous differences between acute and chronic pain, the numeric pain scale (NRS) is commonly used in pain research and clinical practice for assessing the intensity of both acute and chronic pain. The use of this scale has been challenged as it may fail to accurately reflect the pure intensity of chronic pain.AimTo compare the effect of anchoring the NRS on the intensity of pain reported by patients with acute vs. chronic pain.MethodsPatients with acute postoperative or chronic pain (n = 100/group) were requested to rate their: current clinical pain intensity on an NRS from 0 to 100; th...

The role of sleep quality and fatigue on the benefits of an interdisciplinary treatment for adults with chronic pain
ConclusionsIn addition to sleep, fatigue emerged as a key potential mechanism of multidisciplinary chronic pain treatment ‐related improvements, suggesting that interventions including elements which effectively target sleep and fatigue may enhance the efficacy of interdisciplinary chronic pain programs. This possibility should be evaluated in future research.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved. (Source: Pain Practice)
