Objective: To determine the effectiveness of balance training with Kinesthetic Ability Trainer 2000 (KAT 2000) in patients with peripheral neuropathic pain related balance disorder. Methods: A total of 60 patients who developed peripheral neuropathic pain-related balance impairment in the chronic phase due to lumber disc herniation, lumber spondylosis and gonarthrosis were included into this randomized controlled prospective study and randomized into either balance exercises groups or KAT 2000 exercises groups. Balance exercises were given all patients in Group 1 (n=30). In addition to balance exercises, KAT 2000 balance exercises were given all patients in group 2 (n=30). All patients received 45-min individualized training session for three times a week for 4 weeks. Patients were evaluated according to pain, static and dynamic balance and quality of life (QoL).
The purpose of this trial is to explore if a novel vagal neuromodulation approach provides analgesic benefit through central mechanisms in patients with chronic pancreatitis
Chronic obliterative arteriopathy of the inferior limbs is a frequent condition observed in diabetics. The later stages induce pain at rest and trophic disorders (ulcer, gangrene) that lead to chronic limb ischemia. Without possible surgical revascularization ,pain management and tissue healing are used to avoid amputation. Prevalence of diabetes is twice higher in Reunion Island than in metropolitan France. As a consequence, the rate co-morbobidities, such as chronic obliterative arteriopathy of the inferior limbs, is also increases. This study compares the efficiency of two analgesic treatments in diabetics with forefoot injuries.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a procedure that has been shown to improve pain in chronic sufferers. It is a well-tolerated procedure that can be performed on an outpatient basis. It uses a plastic covered coil that sends a magnetic pulse through the skull into the brain and by targeting particular areas in the brain it can be used to help modulate the perception of pain. The study intends to use this technique to treat such a disabling symptom in patients who suffer from Parkinson's Disease (PD). Initially the aim is to study this technique in ten patients who are suffering from pain and have PD. These patients would initially require an MRI scan which allows us to map the brain and target the correct brain areas for the delivery of the stimulation. The stimulation would be performed over ten sessions and the patients would be assessed by a clinician using well recognized clinical tools. It is anticipated that there will be a meaningful improvement in pain. It is also anticipated that TMS is a safe technique to use in patients with PD. The study will be used to help plan a future study that compares TMS with sham technique to prove whether TMS could be an option in the treatment of such a disabling condition.
Evaluation of topical treatment with lidocaine 5% patch (daily administration) or capsaicin 8% patch (periodic administration - upon reoccurrence of pain symptoms) in adult patients suffering from localized neuropathic pain (LNP) across a wide variety of etiologies, with a duration between 1 and 12 months (subacute to chronic neuropathic pain (NP)).
This a single center study comparing two forms of electrical stimulation: sub-sensory burst stimulation (DRG-Burst3D) and standard low frequency stimulation (DRG-LF) in the dorsal root ganglion of subjects diagnosed with neuropathic pain
In the oncology area, neuropathic pains are relatively frequent and can be induced by surgery, radiotherapy, or chemotherapy. In usual practice, some units are using qutenza in order to reduce neuropathic pain even though using of this patch for a population of cancer patients has never been demonstrated so far in a prospective study. The present prospective study proposes to evaluate the qutenza efficacy in peripheric neuropathic pain in cancer patients.
Stump and phantom pain after amputation are common, but the responsible mechanisms are still not clarified. It has been suggested that phantom limb pain can be reduced by regional anaesthesia and in several recent studies, pain was reduced following intrathecal and intraforaminal blocks. In this study, the investigators want to investigate if spontaneous and evoked pain in amputees will be relieved by regional nerve blocks involving the damaged nerves.
Some children experience chronic pain that is related to damage or diseases that affect the nerves that send pain signals. This is known as neuropathic pain. This is not well understood and can be difficult to diagnose. It can often produce unusual feelings such as sensitivity of the skin to light touch. Neuropathic pain is often severe and difficult to treat, and can affect quality of life for the child and family. This study aims to better characterise the symptoms and signs, and impact of neuropathic pain in children.
Both neuropathic and nociceptive mechanisms may contribute to the OA pain experience. Aims: The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy of warm whirlpool on pain, disability, quality of life (QoL) and sleep for patients with neuropathic pain.
