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

Research into the role of the brain and mind in chronic pain
  • Body in Mind Recent global burden of disease surveys tell us that pain and depression are two of the most common and pervasive issues in modern society. The fact that these two are also highly comorbid hardly generates surprise. Living with chronic pain often means restricted mobility, reduced capacity to work and general impairment of quality of life, […] The post Do depressed people experience more physical pain – or less? appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind Introduction Our recent review, published in “Pain Medicine”, highlighted the measurement properties of quantitative sensory testing (QST) and its clinical utility. QST results have been shown to be related to pain or neural sensitivity. QST has been put forward as a potentially useful tool for monitoring disease prognosis and evaluating interventions, but continued research that […] The post Quantitative Sensory Testing in Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind What is inflammation? We usually talk about “inflammation” in relation to infections and injuries. When the body is infected, the immune cells recognize the ‘non-self’ molecules and produce inflammatory factors, called “cytokines”, to coordinate the fight against the infection. Cytokines signal other immune cells and bring them to the site of infection. Inflammation is clinically […] The post Low-grade inflammation and the brain appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind Evidenced-based medicine integrates clinical experience with the results of the best available clinical research data to inform treatment decisions. Optimal application of evidenced-based medicine requires 2 things. First, the results of clinical research must be reported in the peer-reviewed literature in a clear, concise, and transparent manner for busy clinicians and authors of treatment guidelines. […] The post Optimizing the impact of research in chronic pain appeared first on Body in Mind.

  • Body in Mind Approximately 11.25 million Brazilians live in low-income communities or “favelas.” In my home town of Jundiaí, near São Paulo, there are no less than 14 of these low-income communities, the largest of which houses approximately 15 000 families. Some low-income communities, such as Rocinha in Rio de Janeiro, are home to up to 180 000 […] The post “Encontros Saúde & Dor” Bringing Pain Education to Low-Income Communities in Brazil appeared first on Body in Mind.
