Study Description: Brief Summary: A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, single-center, 12-month phase 2 study designed to assess the safety and efficacy of VM202 as a replacement for opioid analgesics in opioid-tolerant subjects with painful diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN).
Brief Summary: The MOCAS Study aims to describe the mechanisms through which sleep deficiency affects youth responses to an online pain self-management intervention over a 6-month period. The study is a single arm trial with repeated measurements using surveys, daily diaries, and actigraphic monitoring.
Brief Summary: The goal of this study is to determine if mind body therapies can help people suffering from chronic back pain. The study is a randomized, partially blinded trial examining the effectiveness of mind body interventions (treatment arms) in reducing disability from back pain and alleviating back pain in participants as compared to usual care (control arm ). The investigators will secondarily investigate whether mind body interventions improve participant quality of life and reduce the need for pain-related hospitalization.
Study Description: Brief Summary: The present prospective trial is designed to evaluate the efficacy of CyMedica Orthopedics e-vive™ system, a multifunctional electrotherapy device providing neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) for reducing pain and accelerating functional recovery in patients with knee osteoarthritis.
Study Description: Brief Summary: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility, acceptability and credibility of a mindfulness-based dance/movement therapy(M-DMT)protocol; to assess and improve methodological procedures for conducting a randomized controlled trial (RCT) test of M-DMT; and to demonstrate proof of principle by gathering information about the process of change between M-DMT and a control condition.
Peripheral electrical stimulation (PES), which encompasses several techniques with heterogeneous physiological responses, has shown in some cases remarkable outcomes for pain treatment and clinical rehabilitation. However, results are still mixed, mainly because there is a lack of understanding regarding its neural mechanisms of action. In this study, we aimed to assess its effects by measuring cortical activation as indexed by functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS).
