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 Mindset. It’s an interesting, some would say controversial topic. Carol Dweck and colleagues [1] first started investigating school students’ attitudes to failure and were intrigued as to why some students rebounded and others seemed devastated by small setbacks. Following years of research, they created the terms ‘fixed mindset’ and ‘growth mindset’ to describe the underlying […] The post Treating chronic low back pain: is it as simple as changing a person’s mindset? appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind Similar to developed countries, low back pain (LBP) is the biggest cause of disability in developing countries such as Nepal [1]. Surprisingly, most research on LBP in Nepal has focused on low value care – treatments with questionable effects but often with known risks or side effects and significant costs. As most health expenses in […] The post Development and testing of pain education programme for low back pain in Nepal: The PEN-LBP trial appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind There is substantial variability in the clinical course of people presenting with acute low back pain (LBP) – pain that lasts for up to 3 months. The majority of patients with acute LBP recover from the episode within a few weeks or months;[1] however, substantial variability exists between patients: some will recover within a few […] The post Acute low back pain: Can screening predict recovery? appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind Some time ago we reported here about the effect of visual induced analgesia on experimental pain in chronic back pain patients. In short to remind you: we used real-time video feedback; a video camera filmed the back and presented the video in real-time on a monitor in front of the subjects, and that was compared […] The post Seeing your pain site – continued appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind Goal setting is well accepted amongst healthcare workers and is included in guidelines in the management of chronic low back pain (CLBP). Most self-management programs, aimed at motivating a person to change behaviour to achieve a specific outcome, include goal setting. The majority of clinicians agree that goal setting is important and think they are […] The post Who’s goal is it anyway? appeared first on Body in Mind.
