147. Distinguishing between nociceptive and neuropathic components in chronic low back pain using behavioural evaluation and sensory examination (PubMed)

Distinguishing between nociceptive and neuropathic components in chronic low back pain using behavioural evaluation and sensory examination Diagnosis of chronic low back pain (CLBP) is traditionally predicated on identifying underlying pathological or anatomical causes, with treatment outcomes modest at best. Alternately, it is suggested that identification of underlying pain mechanisms with treatments targeted towards specific pain phenotypes may yield more success. Differentiation between (...) nociceptive and neuropathic components of CLBP is problematic; evidence suggests that clinicians fail to identify a significant neuropathic component in many CLBP patients. The painDETECT questionnaire (PDQ) was specifically developed to identify occult but significant neuropathic components in individuals thought to have predominantly nociceptive pain.Using the PDQ, we classified 50 CLBP patients into two distinct groups; those with predominantly nociceptive pain (Group 1) and those with a significant

High Prevalence of Undiagnosed Axial Spondyloarthritis in Patients with Chronic Low Back Pain Consulting Non-Rheumatologist Specialists in Belgium: SUSPECT Study Diagnosis of axial spondyloarthritis (SpA) can be delayed for several years mainly because of low awareness of axial SpA among non-rheumatologists who are the first interlocutors of potential SpA patients. One strategy to decrease the delay between appearance of first symptoms and diagnosis of axial SpA and to allow early management (...) of the disease is to provide the non-rheumatologists with tools to identify patients requiring prompt referral to rheumatologists. This study was designed to evaluate in a real-world setting whether screening patients with chronic low back pain who consult physical medicine and rehabilitation (PMR) physicians, orthopedists, and ophthalmologists is useful in detecting axial SpA.During this non-interventional cross-sectional study, data from 161 patients with chronic back pain, consulting an orthopedist, PMR
