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 This study [1] arose out of a clinical aspiration to do things better.  Daily practice in secondary care spinal clinics at a large metropolitan hospital saw distressed and disabled patients with low back pain (LBP) come and go.  Many had waited months or years for ‘surgical’ consultation, only to be promptly discharged – with “community-based […] The post Managing low back pain in secondary care:  Should we screen to target those ‘at risk’ or treat them all? appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind There are easily a thousand clinical prediction rules (CPRs) related to managing musculoskeletal pain. Okay, maybe a thousand is an exaggeration. My point is there are many. All designed with the aim of helping clinicians to make more certain decisions about diagnosis (diagnostic CPRs), prognosis (prognostic CPRs) or likely response to an intervention (prescriptive CPRs). […] The post Clinical prediction rules: Use the babies and throw the bathwater? appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind Our tactile world is infinitely rich: a cold breeze, a sharp poke, raindrops, or a mother’s gentle caress all impose mechanical forces on our skin, and yet we encounter no difficulty in telling them apart and can react differently to each. How do we recognize and interpret the myriad of tactile stimuli to perceive our […] The post Wired for touch: the neurons and circuits of the somatosensory system appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind I am down on sleep and have penned a rather personal post, because right now, on the back of some outstanding conversations with some truly impressive newly ‘graduating’ Anaesthetic and Pain Medicine fellows*, it seems an important reflection to share. Yesterday I caught up with my good mate Jono.  Conversation with Jono is always rewarding. […] The post Reductionism vs The Big Picture – can we have our kayak and heat it too? appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind Many of us will have heard of the visual blind spot, scotomas (an area of partial or complete loss of visual acuity in an otherwise clear field of vision) and phantom limb sensations, but what do these have in common? They show us that despite a void in our perceptual field, we can maintain a […] The post Cartographers need not apply: Skin-based maps are self-organising appeared first on Body in Mind.
