Among convicted offenders, receiving methadone is associated with lower rates of death from external and non-external causes, according to new research published this week in PLOS Medicine by Angela Russolillo of Simon Fraser University, Canada, and colleagues.
Faced with the epidemic of opioid addiction, researchers have been charged with finding other strategies to treat pain. Their efforts largely have focused on nerve cells that transmit pain signals to the spinal cord and brain. But new research, led by scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, shows that targeting receptors on immune cells may be more effective, particularly for chronic pain.
New research on spinal injuries has found that rehabilitation should include the mind as well as the body.
According to a study published in PLoS OnE, modified painDETECT scores indicated that 37% of participants with hip OA and 46% of participants with knee OA had possible neuropathic phenotypes.

The purpose of this systematic review was to unravel these differences and inconsistent findings by evaluating the research on the effectiveness of mobilization and manipulation for chronic non-specific low back pain
UNIVERSITY PARK, PA—When migraine sufferers see the tell-tale squiggly lines, light flashes and blind spots of a migraine aura, they prepare for a migraine. When researchers see the brain image of an aura, they try to figure out what causes it and if there is a way to stop the start of the migraine. Now an international team of researchers has identified the electrical activity specific to the start of migraines and demonstrated a way to stop it in animal experiments.
Osteoarthritis present with earlier worsening of knee structure and poorer patient-reported and physical function measures, including a decline in walking speed, compared with individuals who have a more common, gradual onset of knee OA, according to the results of a longitudinal analysis of data from the Osteoarthritis Initiative published in Arthritis Care & Research. | READ MORE
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common arthropathy of the hand, and current treatments carry risks of adverse events.
Movement is the most common final output of nervous system activity and is essential for survival.
Is treating the diaphragm the key to relieving chronic pain in the lower back?
OTTAWA—Science is that much stronger when diverse ideas are welcomed. When Canada's research community has a say in the development of new programs that support it, our researchers are able to discover and innovate in ways that have a profound impact on our health, environment, economy and communities.
For scientists, pain has long presented an intractable problem: it is a physiological process, just like breathing or digestion, and yet it is inherently, stubbornly subjective—only you feel your pain. It is also a notoriously hard experience to convey accurately to others.
