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 A diagnosis of chronic pain is not a milestone that parents and young people plan for. Similarly, knowing how to effectively respond to and care for a child who is experiencing pain that sticks around for longer than anticipated is not part of most parents’ parenting toolkit. Thus, parenting a child with chronic is pain […] The post Balancing confidence and compassion when responding to children’s chronic pain appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind About thirty years ago, de Roos et al. [1] found some signal changes in the endplates of the lumbar vertebra on MRI that had not been described in the literature before. Dr. Modic and his group picked up on the findings and described them further, classifying them into three distinct types, Type 1, Type 2 […] The post Are Modic changes associated with low back pain? appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind “Physicians and patients usually harbor a concept of pain that involves a linkage between body damage and the pain reported by the patient. This is an inadequate concept that leads both physicians and their patients into unnecessary difficulties in the management of chronic pain.” Loeser, 1982 [1] We recently read the classic article by Loeser […] The post A mechanistic approach to pain management: Applying the biopsychosocial model to physical therapy appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind Associative learning is the process by which people and animals learn that two events or stimuli occur together. One of the evolutionary advantages of associative learning is to identify predictors of adverse situations or consequences (i.e., those that produce harm), so that we can anticipate and avoid them. For example, a person suffering from back […] The post Biased towards pain: the role of expectancy in impaired selective learning in fibromyalgia patients appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind The obvious answer to the question, why do people seek healthcare for musculoskeletal conditions might be because of pain, loss of function, or disability. To some degree, all of these reasons are suitable answers.  However, as the British economist E.F. Schumacher once stated “everything can be seen directly except through the eye through which we […] The post A simple question with a complex answer: Why do people seek healthcare? appeared first on Body in Mind.
