Neuropathic pain in a rehabilitation setting after spinal cord injury: an interpretative phenomenological analysis of inpatients’ experiences Qualitative, semi-structured interviews.Neuropathic pain (NP) can be psychologically and physically debilitating, and is present in approximately half of the spinal cord injured (SCI) population. However, under half of those with NP are adherent to pain medication. Understanding the impact of NP during rehabilitation is required to reduce long-term (...) impact and to promote adherence to medication and psychoeducation recommendations.United Kingdom.Five males and three females with SCI and chronic NP, resident in rehabilitation wards at a specialist SCI center in the United Kingdom, took part. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with participants less than 15 months post-SCI (mean = 8.4 months).

Integrated services and early intervention in the vocational rehabilitation of people with spinal cord injuries The design was a narrative review. The objective of the study was to investigate the potential for early vocational rehabilitation (VR) interventions for people with spinal cord injury (SCI) in overcoming barriers in returning to work, and to pinpoint factors contributing to effectiveness in early VR intervention for this population. The setting was at Queensland, Australia.Synthesis (...) until some months post discharge, potentially missing a window of opportunity to preserve pre-existing employment or assist in vocational decision making. The review found that there are opportunities for enhancing VR service provision following SCI, namely integrating the VR programme within the primary rehabilitation team thus facilitating early VR intervention.Emerging evidence shows promising results for early intervention in VR; however, questions remain regarding ideal intervention approaches

Evolution of traumatic spinal cord injury in patients with ankylosing spondylitis, in a Romanian rehabilitation clinic The ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a systemic, multi-factorial, chronic rheumatic disease. Patients are highly susceptible to vertebral fractures with or without spinal cord injury (AS-SCI), even after a minor trauma. The study is a retrospective descriptive survey of post-acute, traumatic AS-SCI patients, transferred from the neurosurgical department and admitted in a Romanian (...) Neurorehabilitation Clinic, during 2010-2014. There were 11 males associating AS-SCI (0.90% of all consecutive SCI admitted cases), with an average age of 54.6 years (median 56, limits 42-73 years). The average duration between the medically diagnosed AS and the actual associated spinal fracture(-s) moment was 21.4 years (median 23; limits 10-34 years). Low-energy trauma was incriminated in 54.5% cases. The spinal level of fracture was: cervical (four cases), thoracic (three), lumbar (four), assessed at admission
