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.

Research into the role of the brain and mind in chronic pain
  • Body in Mind Yoga has been practiced around the world for thousands of years and usually involves a series of integrated mind-body exercises – concentrating on stretching, breathing, balance, co-ordination and control. It also involves significant aspects of meditation and relaxation. These days in Western cultures, yoga is often practised within the context of fitness and general health, […] The post Are people who practice yoga better at motor imagery? appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind One high profile campaign to raise awareness of persistent pain uses the tagline ‘persistent pain doesn’t kill, but it does ruin lives’. This is a fair argument, but recent data raise the possibility of an increased risk of death from other diseases (e.g. cardiovascular disease, cancer) in people who suffer from chronic pain[1]. We now […] The post When pain kills – chronic pain and chronic diseases appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind In April 2017, Lorimer and an equally passionate bunch of clinicians, academics and supporters rode their bikes from Melbourne to Adelaide with the aim of reaching out to rural communities struggling with the problem of persisting pain. They challenged themselves with the long days on the bike, and they planted seeds of change in how […] The post Pain Revolution Rides Again! appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind From infancy onward, mammals express pain by vocalization, body movement, and facial actions. Such expression can communicate danger to others or elicit support. But these observable actions are not always specific to pain, and they diminish as pain persists. In humans, the understanding, prevention, and relief of pain is helped by receptive and expressive language. […] The post Can preschool-age children reliably report the intensity of their pain? appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind This is the second summary in a series of two blog posts highlighting valuable information about our current understanding of mechanisms of pain in endometriosis from a recent review led by researchers at the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of Oxford [2]. It continues with peripheral mechanisms and then highlights the possibility that […] The post Talking about endometriosis – part 2 appeared first on Body in Mind.
