Pain Control - Science Daily

Pain Management and Pain Control. Read about causes of aches and pains and breaking news on conventional and alternative pain control methods.
  1. Osteoarthritis patients that are more confident in their abilities in the morning go on to be more physically active throughout the day, according to a team of researchers.
  2. Those who completed a 12-week yoga program had better scores on a disability questionnaire, improved pain intensity scores, and a decline in opioid use, a study that included 150 veterans with chronic low back pain found. The findings jibe with those from two past clinical trials involving non-veterans.
  3. After participating in a single, 15-minute session of certain mind-body therapies, patients reported an immediate decrease in pain levels similar to what one might expect from an opioid painkiller. This study is the first to compare the effects of mindfulness and hypnosis on acute pain in the hospital setting.
  4. Pain sensitivity associated with alcohol withdrawal may activate the same brain region in both drinking and non-drinking mice, finds a study.
  5. A classification system based on patient symptoms and basic lab tests can reduce the need for diagnostic imaging, hospital admissions, and surgery in patients with suspected appendicitis, suggests new research.
