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.

  • Body in Mind We all know how common back pain is and how back pain comprises a significant proportion of the 1 in 4 people with persistent pain. There is clearly an established link between the meaning of one’s pain and the fear it evokes, right?  Someone’s perception of what it happening in their back relates to their […] The post We should be worried about gravity?!?! appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind Avid readers of BodyinMind.org know all too well that chronic pain can be associated with perceived distortions of the painful limb, be it in size, shape or posture [1-4].

What they report […] The post Should proprioceptive training be a priority in the management of chronic pain? appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind In recent times, there has been a surge of interest in the use of cell-based therapies for the treatment of a range of musculoskeletal conditions, with many high profile sportspeople availing of these therapies (e.g here and here). Cell-based therapies can involve the use of chrondrocyte or mesenchymal stem cells. These are typically extracted from […] The post Are cell-based therapies effective for low back pain? appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind Children and young people often complain about pain such as headaches, stomach aches, and muscle pain. However, as with adults, there is huge variability in how frequently the pains are experienced, how intensely they are felt, and how much control individuals have over the pain, to prevent it from being overwhelming and affecting everyday life.
