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 People are often surprised at how badly our treatments for chronic pain perform. Pharmacological, surgical, rehabilitative, and psychological treatments all underperform against our expectations, wishes and ideals (Eccleston and Crombez, 2017). The good news, however, is that there is fervent research activity in the pharmacological and surgical fields to identify novel therapeutic avenues. The same […] The post Designing next-generation psychotherapy in pain appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind The mechanisms through which acute exercise reduces pain (ie, exercise-induced hypoalgesia [EIH]) are poorly understood. This study aimed to determine if ... The post Pain education enhances the pain-relieving effect of exercise in healthy adults appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind In the 21st century, it is hard to imagine pain was once conceptualized as a simple sensory experience. Indeed, pain might be easier to treat if the experience were linearly related to the amount of tissue damage. For better and worse, our experience of pain is anything but straight-forward; it is wrapped up in a […] The post Racial/Ethnic Differences in Pain: Does Biology Play a Role? appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind Some of the difficulties that people with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) report in feeling and moving their affected limb appear to be similar to a condition called hemispatial neglect [1,2]. Patients with ‘neglect’ have difficulty attending to one side of the environment following brain injury, and the similarities between the two conditions might lead […] The post Attention bias in complex regional pain syndrome: it’s not just about the body appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind Earlier this month, Nature Reviews Neurology published a Consensus Statement from a presidential taskforce of the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP), on the use of brain imaging tests for chronic pain. The statement answers the question of whether chronic pain can be identified ‘objectively’. Whether or not brain imaging can provide a […] The post Is finding a pukka neurosignature for pain on the top of our discovery list? appeared first on Body in Mind.
