Managing Sciatica and Radicular Pain in Primary Care Practice Excerpt :

Low back pain is described as a very common condition that tends to affect about 70% of the population at some point in time with varying degrees of symptom severity. Although definitions vary, sciatic pain is generally defined as back-related pain radiating to the leg (normally below the knee and into the foot and toes) and is one of the commonest variations of low back pain. Patients with sciatica typically experience a more persistent and severe type of pain, a less favorable outcome, consume more healthcare resources and have more prolonged disability and absence from work than those with low back pain alone. Managing Sciatica and Radiculopathies in Primary Care Practice provides a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of the subject and key information for primary care practitioners about low back pain in patients, including definitions and causes, current management approaches, diagnostic and treatment algorithms, as well as clinical practice guidelines.

Relieving Pain in America Excerpt :

Chronic pain costs the nation up to $635 billion each year in medical treatment and lost productivity. The 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act required the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to enlist the Institute of Medicine (IOM) in examining pain as a public health problem. In this report, the IOM offers a blueprint for action in transforming prevention, care, education, and research, with the goal of providing relief for people with pain in America. To reach the vast multitude of people with various types of pain, the nation must adopt a population-level prevention and management strategy. The IOM recommends that HHS develop a comprehensive plan with specific goals, actions, and timeframes. Better data are needed to help shape efforts, especially on the groups of people currently underdiagnosed and undertreated, and the IOM encourages federal and state agencies and private organizations to accelerate the collection of data on pain incidence, prevalence, and treatments. Because pain varies from patient to patient, healthcare providers should increasingly aim at tailoring pain care to each person's experience, and self-management of pain should be promoted. In addition, because there are major gaps in knowledge about pain across health care and society alike, the IOM recommends that federal agencies and other stakeholders redesign education programs to bridge these gaps. Pain is a major driver for visits to physicians, a major reason for taking medications, a major cause of disability, and a key factor in quality of life and productivity. Given the burden of pain in human lives, dollars, and social consequences, relieving pain should be a national priority.

Background and Aims:Complex regional pain syndrome is currentlyapoorly understood disease. Symptoms are usually very intense and profoundly affect the quality of lifeofpeople who suffer from the disease. We present the case of a woman withComplex regional pain syndrome in externalmalleolus due to fall skiing.Methods:52 year old female presented to the pain department with severe external malleolus pain and stiffness, persisting for more than 8 months after falling in the snow. The patient met the criteria for a probable diagnosis of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) ankle. She had already been treated with corticoids and we decided to discontinue the treatment as no response was found. We prescribed gabapentin and tramadol with almost no response. After this treatment we undergo a superficial peroneus block with 100 % improvement that lasted 3 weeks, therefore we decided to apply radiofrequency to that nerve during 6 minutes and 45 V.ResultsAfter the radiofrequency, we applied 3 milliliters of levobupivacaine plus 4 milligrams of dexamethasone. The patient had an improvement of 100 % that lasted at least during 6 months. She could come back to work and we follow her up every 3 months.Conclusions:TheComplex regional pain syndrome is a pain treatment challenge. We must have open minds and offer our patient the best option according to their illness.

Epiduroscopy Excerpt :

Endoscopy of the spinal canal – epiduroscopy (EDS) – has proven to be a safe, efficient and future-oriented interventional endoscopic procedure for everyday clinical use in diagnosing and managing pain syndromes. Epiduroscopy can be used in the sacral, lumbar, thoracic and even cervical regions of the spine to identify pathological structures, carry out tissue biopsies and perform epidural pain provocation tests to assess the pain relevance of visualized anomalies, making it an excellent diagnostic tool. Spinal endoscopy allows targeted epidural analgesic pharmacologic therapy for affected nerve roots or other painful regions in the epidural space. Treatment options provided by epiduroscopy include laser-assisted adhesiolysis or resection of pain-generating fibrosis, catheter placement, as well as support with other invasive procedures for pain relief. Professional EDS management enhances a multimodal philosophy and opens up new treatment strategies for patients. If used early on, it can control pain well before chronicity sets in.
