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.

 

INTERESTING STUFF

The three "Neuropathic Pain" Fact Sheets and MCQ's are available to all PMPG members (3 CPD points each). If you haven't received your login details please contact Debbie on 083 443 1111.

NEWSFEED: BODY IN MIND

Body in Mind

Research into the role of the brain and mind in chronic pain
  • Body in Mind The importance of accounting for change over time when investigating how our treatments work Whenever we test a treatment or intervention in the form of a randomised clinical trial (RCT), we should be interested in how and why it was successful (or unsuccessful) at improving patient outcomes and which specific elements or components of the […] The post Opening the “black box” of interventions appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind Our previous post about a classical conditioning model for pain generated some lively discussion.  Some argued vehemently that pain cannot be a classically conditioned response, and others argued vehemently that of course it can and we have known this for decades.  We haven’t yet pinned our colours to any particular mast – we’d like to […] The post Changing pain thresholds with classical conditioning appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind “Can clinically relevant subgroups of low back pain be identified?” Amongst other very important questions this was highlighted by an international panel of leading low back pain (LBP) researchers in primary care, as a relevant area of research to tackle the enormous burden of LBP. Many classification systems have been published, where researchers and clinicians […] The post Classification of patients with low back-related leg pain: a systematic review appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind If you’ve ever heard of stories in which people report having an ‘out of body experience’ (OBE) during a traumatic incident like a car crash you might be able to guess why there could be a link between OBEs and chronic pain. Some scientists have suggested that the very vivid hallucination that is an OBE […] The post Chronic pain can be lessened by an ‘out of body’ illusion appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind I arrived at the University of Iowa to begin the DPT program with the expectation and excitement of learning how to be a human body mechanic. I had an undergraduate education in engineering, architecture, and education, with a minors in physics and math, so I was perfectly suited for the Newtonian approach to physical therapy.
