Parent responses to child pain during Intensive Interdisciplinary Pain Treatment and 1 Year Follow-up,, ✯✯✯
Impairment in youth with chronic pain is impacted by observable and unobservable (e.g. emotional and cognitive) behaviors of those around them 11,26, particularly their caregivers. Parents and other caregivers are integral to the social context of all youth, including those with chronic pain 48. Unfortunately, parents of youth with chronic pain often experience increased levels of emotional distress, interpersonal difficulties, and financial hardships 14,17,31, which may impair their ability to respond effectively to their child's pain.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Prevention of Chronic Post-surgical Pain and Opioid Use in At-Risk Veterans: A Pilot Randomized Controlled Study
Chronic post-surgical pain (CPSP) is a common and debilitating problem that occurs in 5-85% of patients following a variety of surgeries.22 Orthopedic surgeries are consistently associated with high postoperative pain, with the prevalence of chronic pain at 3 –24 months to be 20% or more after Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) and 8% or more after Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA).2,4,43,33,11 Disabling pain has a dramatic impact on functioning, quality of life, mood, sleep, cognitive functions and social life.

Experimental referred pain extends towards previously injured location – an explorative study
Musculoskeletal pain affects a vast majority of the population at some stage during the lifespan.4 After an initial painful musculoskeletal event, such as whiplash or an acute back sprain, recurrent episodes of pain separated by pain-free periods are common.11,18,31 Although, the mechanisms for pain recurrence are unclear unresolved tissue pathology is not considered a driving factor.24 (Source: The Journal of Pain)

The opportunity to avoid pain may paradoxically increase fear
It is commonly accepted that pain can occur in the absence of apparent tissue damage, which is often the case in chronic pain17. Furthermore, beliefs and expectations can influence the experience of pain1. The fear-avoidance model of chronic pain provides a cognitive-behavioural explanation on how acute pain may turn into chronic pain, and how pain and disability may be maintained34,35. The model emphasizes how catastrophic (mis)interpretation of pain elicits pain-related fear that in turn may spur avoidance behaviour leading to chronic pain disability. (Source: The Journal of Pain)

Pain management after bone reconstruction surgery using an analgesic bone cement: a functional non-invasive in vivo study using gait analysis
Postoperative pain following bone reconstruction is one of the most frequent undesirable complications, especially in bone iliac crest graft procedures 15,24,28,36,42,54. This pain significantly disrupts patient recovery by reducing their mobility, delaying their functional recovery, increasing their hospital stay and decreasing their quality of life and autonomy 37,53. Furthermore, recent data suggest that chronic pain could induce changes at the immune system level, by modifying immune cell gene expression 29. (Source: The Journal of Pain)

The influence of placebo analgesia manipulations on pain report, the nociceptive flexion reflex, and autonomic responses to pain
Placebo analgesia is pain reduction evoked by sham treatment (e.g., inert cream). Because the treatment has no active ingredient, this implies psychosocial processes are involved. Among the processes identified are 1) expectations for pain relief usually induced by verbal suggestion (e.g., “This cream is a powerful painkiller”) and 2) experience/conditioning usually induced by pairing the sham treatment with pain reduction (achieved in experiments by surreptitious lowering of the painful test stimulus)1,39.

Alcohol and Opioid Use in Chronic Pain: A Cross-Sectional Examination of Differences in Functioning Based on Misuse Status
Opioids are commonly prescribed for the treatment of chronic pain. Rates of opioid prescribing for pain vary across settings and chronic pain location, with estimates of approximately 20% in a nationally representative survey in 2010 [13] to 58% in a community-based health care system in 2012 [54]. While opioids have evidence for pain reduction, they also increase risk of morbidity and mortality [10,11,16,37,48]. Several observational surveys have indicated that rates of opioid-related problems have increased in a manner that parallels the increases in opioid prescription rates over the past few decades [9,61].

Pharmacopuncture with Scolopendra subspinipes suppresses mechanical allodynia in oxaliplatin-induced neuropathic mice and potentiates clonidine-induced anti-allodynia without hypotension or motor impairment
In this study, we examined the effect of SSP into the ST36 acupoint on oxaliplatin-induced mechanical allodynia in mice. Acupoint treatment with SSP (0.5%/20 μL) significantly reduced mechanical allodynia produced by a single oxaliplatin injection (10 mg/kg, i.p.), which was completely prevented by acupoint pre-injection of lidocaine.

Attentional and interpretational biases towards pain-related stimuli in children and adolescents: A systematic review of the evidence
The paediatric fear-avoidance model of pain was based on conceptualisations of fear-avoidance and its role in the development of chronic pain in adults.1 The model 1 suggests that when youth are injured and experience pain, it is their responses to the pain that determine whether pain becomes chronic. Specifically, if youth have no fear of pain, they will gradually resume normal activity which will promote recovery. In contrast, when youth fear pain, they avoid pain-provoking activities and the avoidance promotes further disability and contributes to persistence of the pain. (Source: The Journal of Pain)

Effects of cannabinoid type 2 receptor agonist AM1241 on morphine-induced antinociception, acute and chronic tolerance, and dependence in mice
Morphine is a potent opioid analgesic used to alleviate moderate or severe pain. The repeated administration of morphine for long periods of time is, however, limited by its propensity to cause tolerance, which reduces antinociceptive efficacy, and by physical dependence, which leads to withdrawal symptoms on discontinuation of the drug.[25] The clinical effectiveness of morphine in pain management is seriously restricted by the development of tolerance and dependence and new strategies are needed for better treatment of pain.

Associations Between Catecholaminergic and Serotonergic Genes and Persistent Breast Pain Phenotypes Following Breast Cancer Surgery
In the United States, each year more than 230,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer.66 The majority will undergo breast conserving surgery or mastectomy as part of their treatment regimen. Unfortunately, persistent pain following these procedures is a common problem that has deleterious effects on patients ’ functional status and quality of life (QOL).23,43,68 Estimates of persistent pain following breast cancer surgery range from 25% to 60%.23 This type of persistent pain is characterized by burning, throbbing, or aching in the ipsilateral chest, axilla, and/or arm, and is associated with swelling and weakness....

Oxidative stress contributes to fracture/cast-induced inflammation and pain in a rat model of complex regional pain syndrome
Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) develops after a range of injuries including fractures and soft tissue trauma to the extremities.43 The underlying mechanism of CRPS has not been fully elucidated and there are no specific medications approved for the treatment of CRPS. Oxidative stress results from an imbalance between ROS production and antioxidant defense systems. ROS have been implicated in many degenerative neurological conditions, such as Alzheimer's disease1 and Parkinson's disease18 and oxidative stress may also contribute to pain in various diseases, including fibromyalgia,26 diabetes,35,48 and CRPS.

“I was a little surprised”: Qualitative Insights from Patients Enrolled in a 12-Month Trial Comparing Opioids to Non-Opioid Medications for Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain
Chronic musculoskeletal pain is a major public health problem, associated with disabling physical and emotional consequences for patients and with significant costs related to medical treatment and lost worker productivity.16 Use of opioid analgesics to treat chronic pain has increased dramatically in recent years,7,25 paralleled by increases in opioid-related harms, including addiction and death.1,23,34 While harms of opioids have become apparent, evidence for long-term effectiveness of opioids for chronic pain is lacking; a recent systematic review found no randomized trials that examined effects of opioids on pain, func...

Pupil Size Variation and Pain —Can the Results be Generalized?
I read with great interest the article by Charier et  al,2 describing the increase in pupillary size variation (PSV) associated with labor pain. A method of objectively measuring pain has obvious and profound clinical applications. The hypothesis that pain and pupil size variation could be related is quite reasonable, because it has recently been sho wn that opioids decrease pupil size variation in healthy volunteers,1 and that pupil size variation predicts opioid efficacy in postoperative patients.

Prevalence and Correlates of Low Pain Interference among Patients with High Pain Intensity who are Prescribed Long-Term Opioid Therapy
Chronic pain is a multifaceted experience that involves physiological, psychological, and situational components.17 The experience of pain may vary widely among individuals; differences have been observed by gender,51 ethnicity,32,42 and even certain personality characteristics.41 The pain experience may also vary greatly among individuals reporting equally high levels of pain; while one may function poorly in several areas, another may experience minimal pain-related interference. Although sophisticated diagnostic tools (e.g., imaging studies) can assess anatomic contributions to pain, these are not reliable predictors of...
