Self-Management of Chronic Low Back Pain: Targeting Patient Activation

Start date: July 16, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Patients with chronic low back (cLBP) pain report reduced physical function and ability to participate in social roles and are more likely to use opioid pain medications. While self-management interventions have been shown to support these patients, effectiveness has been limited due to poor patient engagement. "Patient activation" encompasses the skills, knowledge, and motivation that a person has to manage the person's health. Supporting patient activation may improve the effectiveness of self-management for cLBP. In this single-masked pilot study of adults with cLBP, patients were randomized to receive either no intervention (control) or 6 weekly sessions of an evidence-based web-based self-management program (SMP) with or without health behavior change counseling (HBCC) using motivational interviewing. Participants were assessed at baseline and at 12 and 26 weeks using the Patient Activation Measure, Oswestry Disability Index and Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) physical function, social role participation, and pain interference. The investigators assessed acceptability and feasibility based on recruitment, session attendance, and follow-up.

Investigation of the Effect of Different Intensity Stabilization Exercises on Core Muscles

Start date: January 22, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Chronic low back pain, which individuals have difficulty coping with in the modern age and is one of the most common reasons for applying to health institutions, has important consequences for individuals and society. Approximately 80% of individuals experience low back pain throughout their lives, and 10-20% become chronic. Low back pain causes varying degrees of restrictions in individuals' daily living activities, modification or reduction of movements due to pain. This situation causes the pain to continue and causes the functional level to decrease in individuals with low back pain. There are many approaches to the treatment of chronic low back pain, and among these, exercise treatments have been shown to be effective in reducing pain and improving functionality. Spinal stabilization exercises, which have an important place among current exercise approaches for chronic low back pain, ensure the formation of a neutral position in the spine by activating the core muscles consisting of multifidus, transversus abdominis, diaphragm and pelvic floor muscles. Perception of neutral position is provided and applied in daily living activities. In this way, pain is reduced and functionality increases by providing appropriate loading. What kind of changes occur in the core muscles due to the strengthening of the core muscles as a result of spinal stabilization exercises is an important question that needs to be clarified scientifically. It is possible to observe the mechanical changes occurring in the core muscles with shear wave elastography, which has been frequently used in clinical research and practice in recent years. However, in the detailed literature review, no scientific studies were found that evaluated what level of exercise intensity produces optimal changes in the muscle and the correlation of these changes with pain and functional improvement. In this study, where different intensities of exercise will be applied, the mechanical changes occurring in the core muscles before and after exercise will be evaluated with shear wave elastography and the aim is to evaluate the correlation of these changes with pain and pain

Cupping Therapy in Chronic Nonspecific Low Back Pain

Start date: January 1, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Chronic non-specific low back pain is a common condition that can cause disability, physical and psychological impairment, limitations in daily activities, and participation restrictions. It also has significant economic and social impacts. Clinical guidelines recommend non-pharmacological interventions as the first-line treatment, including exercises, psychological therapies, and multidisciplinary rehabilitation. Pharmacological therapies are used when non-pharmacological approaches are not effective. Alternative therapies like cupping therapy have gained attention, but their efficacy is still debated due to limited high-quality studies. Further research is needed to determine the true benefits and effectiveness of cupping therapy in managing chronic low back pain. A recent study found that dry cupping therapy was not superior to sham cupping in improving pain, physical function, mobility, quality of life, psychological symptoms, or medication use in individuals with chronic non-specific low back pain. However, it's important to note that the study used dry cupping therapy in isolation, which may not reflect typical clinical practice. Well-designed clinical trials can provide a better understanding of the potential impact of cupping therapy on various aspects of chronic low back pain. Hence, the primary goal of this randomized clinical trial is to compare the effectiveness of true cupping therapy combined with routine physiotherapy versus sham cupping therapy combined with routine physiotherapy in patients suffering from chronic non-specific low back pain. The study aims to address the following key questions: - Does true dry cupping therapy, when combined with routine physiotherapy, provide greater improvement in pain and functional disability for patients with chronic non-specific low back pain? - Does true dry cupping therapy, when combined with routine physiotherapy, result in a higher improvement in quality of life for patients with chronic non-specific low back pain? Participants in the intervention group will undergo 10 sessions of dry cupping therapy, with each session lasting 5 minutes and conducted three times per week. During the sessions, the therapist will move the cups longitudinally in upward-downward and downward-upward directions. In the control group, participants will assume the same positions as the intervention group, but two cups with small holes (<2mm in diameter) will be used to release negative pressure within seconds.

Mind Your Pain: Validating a Mindful Interoceptive Exposure Task for Patients With Chronic Low Back Pain

MyP
Start date: May 21, 2021
Phase:
Study type: Observational

The usual coping mechanism with chronic pain is distraction, It is unclear whether the opposite, sensory monitoring, can benefit patients with chronic low back pain (cLBP). The study assesses the feasibility and acceptability of a 2-minute phone-based attention exercise, used several times a day over 8 weeks plus a 1-hour introduction, in patients with cLBP. The attention exercise is based on mindfulness-based interoceptive exposure, a task that has been tested before in a mixed pain population in Australia.
