WELCOME TO THE PMPG

The PMPG is a special interest group of the South African Society of Physiotherapists. The group was formed at the end of 2009 to provide a forum for people who have an interest in pain. As pain is common to many different areas, it means that it will be a very diverse group of people who are likely to be part of this initiative. There are many problems that have been identified in the management of pain both at the acute and chronic levels and our hope is that this forum will become a space for the sharing of experiences, the study of evidence-based pain interventions and process and for help in the application of new skills into clinical practice.

Body in Mind

Research into the role of the brain and mind in chronic pain
  • Body in Mind Why is it that some individuals with chronic pain stay fairly active, and others are not? Why do individuals act the way they do? One possible answer to both questions might be motivation. Imagine being an individual suffering from chronic pain. When you experience pain, it may push you to pursue or avoid activities in […] The post Should I stay or should I go? When goals conflict in the context of pain appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind A little while ago now*, O’Keeffe et al published a systematic review and meta-analysis that showed little difference in effect between treatments they described as physical, psychological or combined. The paper was vigorously criticised by Robert Gatchel—of functional restoration fame—and John Licciardone, who run a combined all-on-one-site interdisciplinary program. It was strongly worded – arguing […] The post Prickly issues: The biopsychosociality of pain might not necessarily mean biopsychosocial treatments work.  appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind Chronic pain and other chronic health issues appear to have considerable links. For example, data published by the Australia Institute of Health and Welfare show 64.5% of people with chronic back problems also report another chronic condition, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. One hypothesis for why chronic pain is linked to […] The post Lifestyle behaviour change with chronic pain isn’t a piece of cake appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind I like to measure things. I mean, I really like to measure things. Not entirely sure where that comes from, possibly my love of The Count on Sesame Street during my younger days, or possibly stemming from my philosophical positions on the nature of knowledge and reality:  I believe that any exploration of natural events […] The post The MultiDimensional Symptom Index: A New Tool for Rapid Phenotyping of People in Pain appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind Integrating best evidence on pain management within the entry-level training of healthcare professionals is arguably one of the most comprehensive and effective ways of closing the knowledge-to-practice gap within our field. This, however, is no simple feat. One important challenge is that there are a multitude of factors and invested stakeholders that influence what goes […] The post A national initiative to advance pain education across Canadian physiotherapy programs appeared first on Body in Mind.
