A widely distributed purinergic P2X receptor subtype that plays a role in pain sensation. P2X4 receptors found on MICROGLIA cells may also play a role in the mediation of allodynia-related NEUROPATHIC PAIN.
The use of mental images produced by the imagination as a form of psychotherapy. It can be classified by the modality of its content: visual, verbal, auditory, olfactory, tactile, gustatory, or kinesthetic. Common themes derive from nature imagery (e.g., forests and mountains), water imagery (e.g., brooks and oceans), travel imagery, etc. Imagery is used in the treatment of mental disorders and in helping patients cope with other diseases. Imagery often forms a part of HYPNOSIS, of AUTOGENIC TRAINING, of RELAXATION TECHNIQUES, and of BEHAVIOR THERAPY. (From Encyclopedia of Human Behavior, vol. 4, pp29-30, 1994)
A quality-of-life scale developed in the United States in 1972 as a measure of health status or dysfunction generated by a disease. It is a behaviorally based questionnaire for patients and addresses activities such as sleep and rest, mobility, recreation, home management, emotional behavior, social interaction, and the like. It measures the patient's perceived health status and is sensitive enough to detect changes or differences in health status occurring over time or between groups. (From Medical Care, vol.xix, no.8, August 1981, p.787-805)
Works about clinical trials that involve at least one test treatment and one control treatment, concurrent enrollment and follow-up of the test- and control-treated groups, and in which the treatments to be administered are selected by a random process, such as the use of a random-numbers table.
A set of statistical methods for analyzing the correlations among several variables in order to estimate the number of fundamental dimensions that underlie the observed data and to describe and measure those dimensions. It is used frequently in the development of scoring systems for rating scales and questionnaires.

The process in which specialized SENSORY RECEPTOR CELLS transduce peripheral stimuli (physical or chemical) into NERVE IMPULSES which are then transmitted to the various sensory centers in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM.
Cell membrane proteins that bind opioids and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behavior of cells. The endogenous ligands for opioid receptors in mammals include three families of peptides, the enkephalins, endorphins, and dynorphins. The receptor classes include mu, delta, and kappa receptors. Sigma receptors bind several psychoactive substances, including certain opioids, but their endogenous ligands are not known.
The endogenous peptides with opiate-like activity. The three major classes currently recognized are the ENKEPHALINS, the DYNORPHINS, and the ENDORPHINS. Each of these families derives from different precursors, proenkephalin, prodynorphin, and PRO-OPIOMELANOCORTIN, respectively. There are also at least three classes of OPIOID RECEPTORS, but the peptide families do not map to the receptors in a simple way.

Childhood chronic pain affects at least 5% of the population under the age of 18, according to conservative epidemiological studies. Rates of paediatric chronic pain have also increased in the past 20 years. While chronic pain conditions vary significantly in severity, they often affect childrens mental health, academic performance, and general quality of life. The outcomes of childhood chronic pain are affected by a number of factors, including demographic factors, genetics, and school and family support. Chronic pain is defined as pain that lasts at least 3-6 months and, in the case of injury or surgery, remains present after standard recovery time has elapsed. The ICD-11 provides seven categories for diagnosing chronic pain: Chronic primary pain Chronic cancer pain Chronic postsurgical and posttraumatic pain Chronic neuropathic pain Chronic headache and orofacial pain Chronic visceral pain Chronic musculoskeletal pain Childhood chronic pain can be caused by a number of conditions, including ...

Evidence for cognitive inhibitory deficits in chronic pain patients is mixed; research in this area is complicated by the heterogeneity of chronic pain disorders and the variety of ... read more tasks used to measure cognitive inhibition. Although the exact mechanisms underlying cognitive deficits in chronic pain are currently not known, processing of pain and cognition occurs in overlapping brain areas and significant changes in grey matter density and functional changes in these areas have been observed in chronic pain patients. Because physical fitness has been associated with neuroprotective effects and improved cognition in healthy adults, it has been suggested that improving physical fitness in chronic pain patients might benefit cognitive inhibitory ability. However, some evidence is available that cognitive inhibitory ...
Chronic pain, or persistent pain, is pain that last for weeks, months or even years.. For some, chronic pain is the result of an injury, like a sprained back, or an ongoing problem like arthritis. For others, chronic pain occurs in the absence of a past injury.. Many chronic pain conditions affect older adults. Common chronic pain complaints include headache, low back pain, arthritis pain, or neurogenic pain (pain resulting from damage to the peripheral nerves or to the central nervous system itself.). A 2011 Global Industry Analysts, Inc. report estimates that over 1.5 billion people worldwide suffer from chronic pain, with the incidence rate increasing with age.

Chronic pain affects the life quality of the suffering patients and posts heavy problems to the health care system. Conventional medications are usually insufficient for chronic pain management and oftentimes results in many adverse effects. The NLRP3 inflammasome controls the processing of proinflammatory cytokine interleukin 1β (IL-1β) and is implicated in a variety of disease conditions. Recently, growing number of evidence suggests that NLRP3 inflammasome is dysregulated under chronic pain condition and contributes to pathogenesis of chronic pain. This review provides an up-to-date summary of the recent findings of the involvement of NLRP3 inflammasome in chronic pain and discussed the expression and regulation of NLRP3 inflammasome-related signaling components in chronic pain conditions. This review also summarized the successful therapeutic approaches that target against NLRP3 inflammasome for chronic pain treatment.
Animal models of chronic pain are widely used to investigate basic mechanisms of chronic pain and to evaluate potential novel drugs for treating chronic pain. Among the different criteria used to measure chronic pain, behavioral responses are commonly used as the end point measurements. However, not all chronic pain conditions can be easily measured by behavioral responses such as the headache, phantom pain and pain related to spinal cord injury. Here I propose that cortical indexes, that indicate neuronal plastic changes in pain-related cortical areas, can be used as endpoint measurements for chronic pain. Such cortical indexes are not only useful for those chronic pain conditions where a suitable animal model is lacking, but also serve as additional screening methods for potential drugs to treat chronic pain in humans. These cortical indexes are activity-dependent immediate early genes, electrophysiological identified plastic changes and biochemical assays of signaling proteins. It can be used to

Chronic pain often differs from acute pain. The correlation between tissue pathology and the perceived severity of the chronic pain experience is poor or even absent. Furthermore, the sharp spatial localization of acute pain is not a feature of chronic pain; chronic pain is more diffuse and often spreads to areas beyond the original site. Of importance, chronic pain seldom responds to the therapeutic measures that are successful in treating acute pain. Physicians who are unaware of these differences may label the patient with chronic pain as being neurotic or even a malingerer. During the past decade, an exponential growth has occurred in the scientific underpinnings of chronic pain states. In particular, the concept of non-nociceptive pain has been refined at a physiologic, structural, and molecular level. This review focuses on this new body of knowledge, with particular reference to the chronic pain state termed fibromyalgia ...

Depression and/or anxiety. Pain can make it difficult to sleep, so many patients with chronic pain have trouble sleeping at night. In some cases, sleeping medications can be used to help the patient sleep despite the pain. In other cases, ensuring adequate pain control at bedtime can give enough respite to allow the patient to sleep. However, sleep may still be affected by chronic pain despite treatment.. Its very common for patients with chronic pain to experience severe fatigue. This is related not only to difficulty sleeping, but also to the pain itself, which demands a lot of energy. It may also be related to certain pain medications, or to the underlying cause of the pain (in the case of chronic illness). In many cases, fatigue in chronic pain patients is related to all of these factors. It may be difficult for chronic pain patients to function because of their severe fatigue.. Chronic pain often causes physical limitations. Pain in certain parts of the body may cause the patient to avoid ...
Chronic pain is a major source of suffering. It interferes with daily functioning and often is accompanied by distress. Yet, in the International Classification of Diseases, chronic pain diagnoses are not represented systematically. The lack of appropriate codes renders accurate epidemiological investigations difficult and impedes health policy decisions regarding chronic pain such as adequate financing of access to multimodal pain management. In cooperation with the WHO, an IASP Working Group has developed a classification system that is applicable in a wide range of contexts, including pain medicine, primary care, and low-resource environments. Chronic pain is defined as pain that persists or recurs for more than 3 months. In chronic pain syndromes, pain can be the sole or a leading complaint and requires special treatment and care. In conditions such as fibromyalgia or nonspecific low-back pain, chronic pain may be conceived as a disease in its own right; in our proposal, we call this ...
Chronic pain patients may be more susceptible to COVID-19, and if infected with the virus, may face different consequences than others.. There is a complex relationship between chronic pain and the immune system, said Samer Narouze, MD, PhD, of Western Reserve Hospital in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.. Generally speaking, chronic pain patients can be considered immunocompromised, mainly because so many are elderly and have multiple comorbidities, he noted. Many also are on long-term opioid therapy, and this is known to interact with the immune system. Some are on steroids, which also may induce immunosuppression.. A number of resources are available to guide chronic pain treatment during the COVID-19 outbreak, including guidelines published jointly by the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine and the European Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Therapy.. Pain management during COVID-19 is particularly important to prevent emergency room visits, Narouze said. Our role is to ...

Pain is a component of many chronic conditions, and chronic pain is emerging as a health concern on its own, with negative consequences to individual persons, their families, and society as a whole. The nations science-based health objectives, has a developmental objective to decrease the prevalence of adults having high-impact chronic pain. This analysis extends previous national studies of chronic pain prevalence by identifying adults with high-impact chronic pain. In 2016, approximately 20% of U.S. adults had chronic pain (approximately 50 million), and 8% of U.S. adults (approximately 20 million) had high-impact chronic pain. ...
Under persistent activation nociceptive transmission to the dorsal horn may induce a pain wind-up phenomenon. This induces pathological changes that lower the threshold for pain signals to be transmitted. In addition it may generate nonnociceptive nerve fibers to respond to pain signals. Nonnociceptive nerve fibers may also be able to generate and transmit pain signals. The type of nerve fibers that are believed to propagate the pain signals are the C-fibers, since they have a slow conductivity and give rise to a painful sensation that persists over a long time.[17] In chronic pain this process is difficult to reverse or eradicate once established.[18] In some cases, chronic pain can be caused by genetic factors which interfere with neuronal differentiation, leading to a permanent reduction in the threshold for pain.[19] Chronic pain of different etiologies has been characterized as a disease affecting brain structure and function. Magnetic resonance imaging studies have shown abnormal ...
If youre reading this, my guess is that you have some experience with chronic pain. Perhaps you experience chronic pain yourself, or maybe you know someone that does. Regardless, I think that it is so important to truly understand chronic pain and what contributes to it, so that it can be better managed.. As a physical therapist, I see a lot of chronic pain. And let me tell you, its pretty darn complex. Management of chronic pain is multifaceted. Sure, it requires traditional PT modalities (manual therapy and corrective exercise), but it goes beyond that. I coach my clients in lifestyle changes that help to reduce their pain (e.g. nutrition, sleep, stress management). In fact, the complexity of chronic pain is what inspired me to go to nutrition therapy school. There is also a huge psychosocial component to everyones pain experience, which must be addressed for effective pain management.. Its important to note that pain is actually a good thing.

The researchers assessed chronic (long-term) pain after mastectomy for breast cancer in 175 women. Chronic pain was compared for women receiving two different types of general anesthetics commonly used for surgery: propofol and sevoflurane.. When assessed up to four years after breast cancer surgery, 56 percent of the women said they had chronic pain. Chronic pain was less common for women who received propofol anesthesia: 44 percent, compared to 67 percent for those receiving sevoflurane anesthesia.. On analysis adjusting for other factors, women receiving sevoflurane were about 50 percent more likely to develop chronic pain after mastectomy. Among women with chronic pain, there was no difference in pain severity or duration between the propofol and sevoflurane groups.. Other factors associated with an increased risk of chronic pain after mastectomy were younger age, more extensive surgery (axillary lymph node dissection), and need for more morphine for pain relief after surgery. Higher use of ...

Title: Opiate reduction in chronic pain patients: a comparison of patient-controlled reduction and staff controlled cocktail methods. Source: Pain. 1994 Mar. 56(3). P 279-88. Journal Title: PAIN. Abstract: This study compares the effectiveness of two methods of opiate reduction in 108 chronic pain patients during a 4 week inpatient pain management programme, and at 1-month and 6-month follow-up. Patients chose either the patient-controlled reduction (PCR) or cocktail reduction method, aiming to complete withdrawal by discharge. Use of opiates and other drugs was recorded, and psychological measures taken, at admission, at discharge, and at follow-ups. Patients who opted for the cocktail reduction method started at higher morphine equivalents (P , 0.001), were less confident in their ability to cope without medication (P , 0.05), and rated their everyday activities a more disrupted by pain (P , 0.05). At discharge, 89% of ...
Author: Schofferman-J. Title: Long-term use of opioid analgesics for the treatment of chronic pain of nonmalignant origin. Source: J-Pain-Symptom-Manage. 1993 Jul. 8(5). P 279-88. Journal Title: JOURNAL OF PAIN AND SYMPTOM MANAGEMENT. Abstract: The use of long-term opioids (LTOs) to treat chronic pain of nonmalignant origin (CNMP) is controversial. Most physicians had felt there was essentially no role for LTOs in CNMP, but successful treatment outcomes have recently been reported. Tolerance, organ toxicity, or fear of addiction are not reasons to limit LTOs. The significant question is efficacy. Does LTO therapy improve pain and increase function with minimal side effects or risk? It is useful to divide chronic pain patients into three types. Type 1 patients are typical chronic pain patients with pain and disability far out of proportion to the peripheral stimulus. Psychological factors are significant. In this type of patient, opioids appear to do more harm than good. Type 2 patients have ...

Working together the Pain Alliance Europe (PAE), the Active Citizenship Network (ACN), and the pharmaceutical company Grünenthal have set as the Recommendations ultimate goal to reduce the impact of chronic pain in Europe. The data, collected through interviews with representatives of national Ministries of Health, patients and citizens associations and healthcare professionals, fed into a project report which set the scene for the development of EU Pain Patient Pathways Recommendations. The Recommendations ...
Social media is a powerful tool for raising awareness. We must use it for raising awareness of this important issue.. What is chronic pain?. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke defines chronic pain as pain that persists over a long period of time. Unlike short-term or acute pain, chronic pain is not a normal sensation; it is a continuous sensation of hurt that lasts for weeks, months or even years. More often than not, pain is caused by an initial injury or condition such as a sprained wrist, arthritis, or an ear infection or sometimes no obvious injury or inciting factor.. However, people may experience pain without having suffered a previous injury or health problem. Some of the most common complaints of chronic pain stem from headaches, lower back problems, cancer, arthritis and damage to nerves. The AAPM estimates that over 1.5 billion people suffer from chronic pain worldwide, with the top three leading causes resulting from low back pain, severe headache or ...

Pain is a normal human experience. Without the ability to experience pain, people would not survive. Living in pain, however, is not normal.1 Pain that lasts beyond the normal healing time of tissues is called chronic or persistent pain. Worldwide, chronic pain is increasing. In the US alone, chronic pain has doubled in the last 15-20 years.2 With this increase, comes increased cost. Within Medicare, a US government-based insurance, epidural steroid (pain) injections have increased 629% in the last five years and the use of opioids (for example, hydrocodone and oxycodone) is up 423%.1 This increase is not isolated to the US and represents a global concern. In the shadow of this growing epidemic, we are faced with serious questions. Why is chronic pain increasing? Why are some of our most heroic treatments (opioids, injections, surgery, amputations, etc.) not working? The answer to these questions is complex and contains a variety of issues. ...
Objective. International research has consistently found increased risk for physical health and psychological difficulties among prison officers including elevated risk of assault resulting in acute pain. This study represented an exploratory examination of the experience of chronic pain conditions among Irish prison officers with particular reference to the psychosocial predictors of pain severity, pain interference, and depression. Design. A questionnaire battery was completed by 152 Irish prison officers. The questionnaires measured pain severity and interference, anxiety, depression, social support, coping strategies, and resilience. Results. Results showed that 48% of participants reported chronic pain based on the International Association for the Study of Pain definition. Psychological distress was high among respondents reporting chronic pain, with 38% of participants meeting the criteria for "probable depression" while 51% met the criteria for "probable ...
Chronic pain is typically defined as pain lasting at least 3 to 6 months or that which persists past the time for normal tissue healing. From a strictly biological perspective, pain is activation of the sensory nervous systems nociceptive and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. Adding to the complexity of chronic pain are its diverse origins and the subjective experience of a sufferer. Chronic pain can be the result of several issues ranging from a potential underlying medical condition or disease, to inflammation of injured tissue, to neuropathic pain where the patients central or peripheral nervous system is damaged. The manner in which pain is experienced is more than simply the biological output of an underlying issue. Attitudes, emotional disposition, and belief systems can shape the experience of pain. It is also heavily influenced by extrinsic psychosocial and socioeconomic factors and thus the biopsychosocial impact of chronic pain on the individual is as complex and varied as the disease
In an address to attendees at the European League Against Rheumatism, experts stated that the psychological aspects of managing chronic pain play a large part in patient behavior and treatment adherence.

By Steve Dechan. Chronic pain is currently defined as any pain that persists or recurs for longer than three months. Whilst traditionally an issue among adults across the world, chronic pain in children is becoming a significant public health problem and a leading cause of morbidity in children globally.. The quality of life for children and teens with chronic pain is seriously compromised without access to all-important pain control. Compared to their peers, children with chronic pain report higher levels of physical disability, anxiety, depression, sleep problems, and poor academic performance.. Fortunately, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has released guidelines on the management of chronic pain in children, with recommended physical, psychological and pharmacological interventions for pain relief in children aged 0-19 years. These guidelines represent a step in the right direction and support the drive of WHO member states and their partners to develop and implement national and local ...
We conducted a large nationwide postal survey to estimate the prevalence of chronic pain with or without neuropathic characteristics in the French general population. A questionnaire aimed at identifying chronic pain (defined as daily pain for at least 3 months), evaluating its intensity, duration and body locations, was sent to a representative sample of 30,155 subjects. The DN4 questionnaire was used to identify neuropathic characteristics. Of the questionnaires, 24,497 (81.2%) were returned and 23,712 (96.8%) could be assessed. Seven thousand five hundred and twenty-two respondents reported chronic pain (prevalence=31.7%; [95%CI: 31.1-32.3]) and 4709 said the pain intensity was moderate to severe (prevalence=19.9%; [95%CI: 19.5-20.4]). Neuropathic characteristics were reported by 1631 respondents with chronic pain (prevalence=6.9%; [95%CI: 6.6-7.2]), which was moderate to severe in 1209 (prevalence=5.1% [95%CI: 4.8-5.4]). A higher prevalence of chronic pain with neuropathic characteristics was

Pain can be present even if there is no tissue damage, and pain can persist even after tissues heal from an injury. Your brain can create, amplify or diminish your experience of pain. This doesnt mean that your pain is not real. All pain is real, and all pain exists only in the brain.. Central Sensitization Pain arises when the central nervous system becomes hypersensitive, interpreting otherwise normal stimuli as pain. In fact, the brain can even feel pain in tissues or limbs that no longer exist - a surprisingly common occurrence in amputated limbs (phantom limb syndrome). Treating hypersensitivity therefore requires a different approach than treating a physical injury.. If your chronic pain is not rooted in a musculoskeletal problem, or if the underlying injury has not healed, classic orthopaedic physiotherapy is not indicated as it is not likely to be effective long-term. Instead, chronic pain treatment focuses on desensitizing the nervous system using a whole-body approach that ...
