Psychological therapies for the management of chronic pain (excluding headache) in adults. Chronic non-cancer pain, a disabling and distressing condition, is common in adults. It is a global public health problem and economic burden on health and social care systems and on people with chronic pain. Psychological treatments aim to reduce pain, disability and distress. This review updates and extends its previous version, published in 2012.To determine the clinical efficacy and safety (...) of psychological interventions for chronic pain in adults (age > 18 years) compared with active controls, or waiting list/treatment as usual (TAU).We identified randomised controlled trials (RCTs) of psychological therapies by searching CENTRAL, MEDLINE, Embase and PsycINFO to 16 April 2020. We also examined reference lists and trial registries, and searched for studies citing retrieved trials.RCTs of psychological treatments compared with active control or TAU of face-to-face therapies for adults with chronic

35. Placebos in chronic pain: evidence, theory, ethics, and use in clinical practice. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Placebos in chronic pain: evidence, theory, ethics, and use in clinical practice. Despite their ubiquitous presence, placebos and placebo effects retain an ambiguous and unsettling presence in biomedicine. Specifically focused on chronic pain, this review examines the effect of placebo treatment under three distinct frameworks: double blind, deception, and open label honestly prescribed. These specific conditions do not necessarily differentially modify placebo outcomes. Psychological, clinical (...) , and neurological theories of placebo effects are scrutinized. In chronic pain, conscious expectation does not reliably predict placebo effects. A supportive patient-physician relationship may enhance placebo effects. This review highlights "predictive coding" and "bayesian brain" as emerging models derived from computational neurobiology that offer a unified framework to explain the heterogeneous evidence on placebos. These models invert the dogma of the brain as a stimulus driven organ to one in which

Therapeutic ultrasound for chronic low back pain. This is an update of a Cochrane Review published in 2014. Chronic non-specific low back pain (LBP) has become one of the main causes of disability in the adult population around the world. Although therapeutic ultrasound is not recommended in recent clinical guidelines, it is frequently used by physiotherapists in the treatment of chronic LBP.The objective of this review was to determine the effectiveness of therapeutic ultrasound (...) reported on the number of participants achieving a 30% reduction in pain, patient satisfaction, disability, or adverse events for this comparison.The evidence from this systematic review is uncertain regarding the effect of therapeutic ultrasound on pain in individuals with chronic non-specific LBP. Whilst there is some evidence that therapeutic ultrasound may have a small effect on improving low back function in the short term compared to placebo, the certainty of evidence is very low. The true effect

High-quality best practice guidance is lacking for interventions that are generalizable to all surgery patients to reduce the risk of acute post-surgical pain transitioning to chronic. ? Many publications recognized (...) that control of acute post-operative pain was a primary risk factor for transition to chronic pain; however, long-term outcomes such as transition to chronic pain were not provided in supporting evidence for any acute pain management recommendations. ? Specific surgical techniques have been recommended to reduce the risk of transition from acute to chronic post- surgical pain; however, no generalizable interventions for all surgical patients have been strongly recommended within available CPGs or tested
