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 Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is diagnosed according to a clear and distinct description of the signs and symptoms of the condition [1]. Clinician observations and patient reports are used and reaching a threshold “score” determines a positive diagnosis. This all seems simple enough, and, for the majority of patients, the signs and symptoms of […] The post When can you say you are well again? How do people with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome define recovery? appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind There is a popular belief that chronic non specific low back pain (CNSLBP) patients need to have higher activation of their trunk muscles during simple functional tasks in order to stabilize their spine. Changes in pain and disability, however, do not seem to be mediated by deep muscle activity changes targeted by some exercise interventions […] The post Take a step back to understand muscle behaviour in chronic low back pain appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind Chronic back pain is one of the most common medical problems patients experience, and it may also be psychologically and socially disabling. People with chronic back pain are significantly more likely to experience depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions than the general population. I wanted to get a deeper appreciation of how chronic back […] The post Self-efficacy and paradoxical dependence in chronic back pain appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind A very simple and clinical way to screen how humans perceive touch is to do a tactile acuity assessment. Tactile acuity is a measure of the precision of the sense of touch and there has been fervid interest in tactile acuity and pain in the past decade. Patients with chronic pain, especially chronic low back […] The post A “protection mode” in pain costs appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind When I am asked what my life’s work is, I often respond that I spend my days in a dark basement laboratory, and recruit volunteers who I then subject to painful stimuli (usually electrical shocks). I am an experimental pain researcher after all. My wife, in disbelief, asks a similar question: “Why on Earth would […] The post Pain, please: Why would anybody volunteer to participate in pain research? appeared first on Body in Mind.
