Exploring the pre-morbid contexts in which central sensitisation developed in individuals with non-specific chronic low back pain. A qualitative study
Jacqui R. Clark, Peter C. Goodwin, Gillian Yeowell
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.10.012

  • Pre-morbid contexts may relate to the onset of central sensitisation in chronic low back pain.

  • Themes of developmental learning experiences and personal characteristics emerged.

  • Themes of physical and emotional sensitivities and traumas also emerged.

  • These four themes may be linked with autonomic stress responses and central sensitisation pain.

How does context influence arm use after stroke? A qualitative content analysis among rural community-dwelling stroke survivors
Vasanthan Rajagopalan, Manikandan Natarajan, Johnson Alex, John M. Solomon

  • Rural stroke survivors have limited awareness and knowledge of active functional task practice.

  • For recovery of the affected upper extremity, many stroke survivors rely on passive recovery methods.

  • Self-engagement in active functional task practice is facilitated by an enriched home environment and perception of ongoing recovery.
