Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is among the most common and disabling persistent pain conditions, with increasing prevalence in the developed world, and affects women to a greater degree than men. In the USA, the growth of knee OA has been paralleled by an increase in rates of total knee arthroplasty (TKA), a surgical treatment option for late-stage knee OA. While TKA outcomes are generally good, postoperative trajectories of pain vary widely, with some patients reporting a complete absence of pain, b...

Abstract Acute pain after breast surgery decreases the quality of life of cancer survivors. Previous studies using a variety of definitions and methods report prevalence rates between 10% to 80%, which suggests the need for a comprehensive framework that can be used to guide assessment of acute pain and pain-related outcomes after breast surgery. A multidisciplinary task force with clinical and research expertise performed a focused review and synthesis and applied the five dimensional framework...

Abstract Background Previous studies suggest that truncal regional anaesthesia (TRA), including techniques such as paravertebral block, may contribute significantly to analgesia after mastectomy. However, the severity and impact of postoperative pain varies markedly amongst individuals, making the identification of patients who would benefit most from TRA a potentially important step toward personalised perioperative care. Methods In this prospective observational study, mastectomy patients (n=1...

Abstract Pain has well-established effects on attention. At present, parallel literatures exist that have examined the effects of experimentally induced pain and consider cognitive performance in patients with chronic pain states. However, no study to date as attempted to examine the combined or differing effects of these 2 manifestations of pain in a single study. Twenty-four participants with fibromyalgia (aged 43.00 ± 28.28 years) and 26 healthy controls (aged 36.07 ± 11.93 years) completed a...

Abstract The severity and impact of acute pain after breast surgery varies markedly among individuals, underlining the importance of comprehensively identifying specific risk factors, including psychosocial and psychophysical traits. In this prospective observational study, women (n = 234) undergoing breast-conserving surgery, mastectomy, or mastectomy with reconstruction completed a brief bedside quantitative sensory testing battery, along with measures of psychosocial characteristics. Postoper...

Music has been shown to decrease pain and modulate affect, but the mechanism by which music conveys analgesia in relatively unexplored . Using quantitative sensory testing (QST), we assessed the impact of a novel app-based music intervention on the nociceptive processing of pain. Healthy volunteers (n=60) were assessed for psychosocial traits including anxiety, depression, and catastrophizing using validated questionnaires. QST included investigation of: 1) pain sensitivity as measured by pressu...

Fibromyalgia (FM) is characterized by chronic widespread pain, sleep disturbance, fatigue, and catastrophizing. This pilot study explored whether gentle, daily yoga-based exercise practice could improve pain and sleep quality, and whether certain patient phenotypes were associated with greater improvement. Fibromyalgia patients (n = 36) attended a six-week yoga program, with weekly, in-person, pain-tailored group yoga classes, and were sent daily yoga videos to practice for 30 minutes at home. P...
