Background A close collaboration between surgeons and non-surgical spine experts is crucial for optimal care of low back pain (LBP) patients. The affiliation of a chiropractic teaching clinic to a university hospital with a large spine division in Zurich, Switzerland, enables such collaboration. The aim of this study was to describe the trajectories and outcomes of patients with chronic LBP referred from the spine surgery division to the chiropractic teaching clinic.

Experiencing pleasure and displeasure is a fundamental part of life. Hedonics guide behavior, affect decision-making, induce learning, and much more. As the positive and negative valence of feelings, hedonics are core processes that accompany emotion, motivation, and bodily states. Here, the affective neuroscience of pleasure and displeasure that has largely focused on the investigation of reward and pain processing, is reviewed. We describe the neurobiological systems of hedonics and factors th...

Phantom limb pain (PLP) has been associated with both the reorganization of the somatotopic map in primary somatosensory cortex (S1) and preserved S1 function. Here we assessed the nature of the information (sensory, motor) that reaches S1 and methodological differences in the assessment of cortical representations that might explain these findings. We used functional magnetic resonance imaging during a virtual hand motor task, analogous to the classical mirror box task, in amputees with and wit...

After limb amputation, most amputees suffer from phantom limb pain (PLP). The mechanisms underlying this condition are complex and insufficiently understood. Altered somatosensory sensitivity (either heightened or lowered) might contribute to PLP. Recent studies have tested this assumption but mainly focused on the residual limb. However, altered somatosensation in PLP might be generalized. In this study, we applied quantitative sensory testing to 37 unilateral upper-limb amputees (23 with PLP, ...

Pain elicits fear and anxiety and promotes escape, avoidance, and adaptive behaviors that are essential for survival. When pain persists, motivational priority and attention shift to pain-related information. Such a shift often results in impaired functionality, leading to maladaptive pain-related fear and anxiety and escape and avoidance behaviors. Neuroimaging studies in chronic pain patients have established that brain activity, especially in cortical and mesolimbic regions, is different from...

1. Why we need a better understanding of fatigue in chronic painFatigue is a prevalent complaint in people with chronic pain.11,46 A study in the general population showed that 64% of the individuals with chronic widespread pain reported co-occurring persistent fatigue.13 In patients with chronic pa

Placebo and nocebo effects are intriguing phenomena in pain perception with important implications for clinical research and practice because they can alleviate or increase pain. According to current theoretical accounts, these effects can be shaped by verbal suggestions, social observational learning, and classical conditioning and are necessarily mediated by explicit expectation. In this review, we focus on the contribution of conditioning in the induction of placebo hypoalgesia and nocebo hyp...

Abstract Current thermal comfort models are fairly inaccurate at predicting occupants' thermal comfort from parameters of indoor environment. The predicted variables, thermal sensation and thermal comfort, are commonly measured using scales. These scales might themselves contribute to the problem of poor prediction due to inter- and intra-individual differences in respondents' interpretation of scales. Until now, it is unclear whether variation in scale use is systematic and potentially statisti...

Background: Nocebo effects, including nocebo hyperalgesia, are a common phenomenon in clinical routine with manifold negative consequences. Both explicit expectations and learning by conditioning are known to induce nocebo effects, but the specific role of conditioning re-mains unclear, because conditioning is rarely implemented independent of verbal suggestions. Further, although pain is a multidimensional phenomenon, nocebo effects are usually assessed in subjective ratings only, neglecting, e...
