Abstract Purpose Cold hyperalgesia is an indicator of widespread pain sensitivity and is associated with poor clinical outcomes. Menthol activates TRPM8, a cold-sensing receptor channel. This research evaluated topical menthol as a potential stimulus to be used in the clinical evaluation of cold hyperalgesia. Methods Participants were 59 pain free volunteers (17 male: 42 female). A blinded, repeated measures design was used. Participants received applications of menthol at different concentratio...

Objectives: Conditioned Pain Modulation (CPM) and Manipulation Induced Analgesia (MIA) may activate similar neurophysiological mechanisms to mediate their analgesic effects. This study assessed the association between CPM and MIA responses in people with lateral epicondylalgia (LE). Methods: Seventy participants with LE were assessed for CPM followed by MIA. A single assessor measured pressure pain thresholds (PPT) before, during, and after cold water immersion (10°C) of the asymptomatic hand an...

AbstractBackground: Stem cell therapy has emerged as a new, exciting treatment for repair of articular cartilage in osteoarthritis (OA), which currently has no cure. Regenerative cell therapies can potentially offer alternatives to total joint replacement for patients with OA. A variety of cell-based therapies have been developed involving the use of autologous and allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). To date, these stem cell therapies have been shown to be safe and efficacious, but informa...

Novice students may have limited learning opportunities during their early exposure to complex clinical environments, due to the priorities of patient care. Immersive, high-fidelity simulation provides an opportunity for physiotherapy students to be exposed to relatively complex scenarios in a safe learning environment before transitioning to the clinical setting. The present study evaluated the influence of immersive simulation on student confidence and competence. Sixty penultimate year physio...

Many factors interact to influence threat perception and the subsequent experience of pain. This study investigated the effect of observing pain (extrinsic threat) and intrinsic threat of pain to oneself on pressure pain threshold (PPT). Forty socially connected pairs of healthy volunteers were threat-primed and randomly allocated to experimental or control roles. An experimental pain modulation paradigm was applied, with non-nociceptive threat cues used as conditioning stimuli. In substudy 1, t...

Background Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is becoming more widely used in the community however there are differences in knowledge and attitudes among and within the various health professions. Chiropractic and nursing students represent a future generation of two health profession groups who may have differing views on CAM. The objectives of this study were to investigate the knowledge, attitudes and beliefs of nursing and chiropractic students about CAM. To investigate the factor...

Summary Objective Mounting evidence points to the heterogeneity of osteoarthritis (OA) pain, increasing the need for more comprehensive assessment of the efficacy of standard interventions. This study investigated whether 14 days of the selective Cox-2 inhibitor etoricoxib (60 mg/day) would modify self-report of pain intensity and quality, and physical measures of hyperalgesia and function in individuals with knee OA. Design This double-blind placebo-controlled trial included 80 community-recrui...

Objectives:Cold hyperalgesia has been established as an important marker of pain severity in a number of conditions. This study aimed to establish the extent to which patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA) demonstrate widespread cold, heat, and pressure hyperalgesia. OA participants with widespread

Increased sensitivity to cold may be a predictor of persistent pain, but cold pain threshold is often viewed as unreliable. This study aimed to determine the within-subject reliability and between-subject variance of cold response, measured comprehensively as cold pain threshold plus pain intensity and sensation quality at threshold. A test-retest design was used over three sessions, one day apart. Response to cold was assessed at four sites (thenar eminence, volar forearm, tibialis anterior, pl...
