This article aims to establish a "profile" of patients presenting with chronic pain in the algology service of CHU of Liège to identify possible relationships between diagnoses, psychological states and modes of pain management. Between 2005 and 2010 we monitored 1832 individual chronic pain patients who attended our pain clinic at the University Hospital of Liège. This paper presents the characteristics of these patients and their test scores before the treatment to assess their health status in a biopsychosocial perspective. Demographic and lifestyle as well as occupational factors, pain disability index, pain belief assessment, hospital anxiety and depression scale, SF-36 (Short Form Health Survey) and pain visual analogue scale are presented. The results have clinical implication; they suggest an adaptation of our therapeutic interventions based on these observations. © 2014 Springer-Verlag France.

Introduction. Low back pain (LBP) is common among athletes and can be challenging for athletic trainers and therapists. Unfortunately, little is known about symptoms associated with functional lumbar segmental instability (FLSI) in athletes with LBP. Purpose. To determine subjective and objective symptoms associated with FLSI in athletes with LBP. Materials and Methods. We included 24 male athletes (12 soccer players and 12 tennis players) with non specific LBP mean (± standard deviation) pain intensity (0-100 Visual Analogue Scale) and disability (0-24 Roland-Disability questionnaire) scores reaching respectively 35 (±20) and 4 (±3). Athletes were submitted to a standardized anamnesis (including subjective identifiers of FLSI) and a clinical assessment conducted by a manual therapist who explored objective identifiers of FLSI. Results. According to the manual therapist, 12 athletes (6 tennis and 6 soccer players) presented a FLSI. The two groups did not differ regarding pain intensity and disability (P>0.05). However, athletes with FLSI appeared significantly younger than non FLSI athletes (P<0.01). Only three subjective identifiers appeared significantly related to FLSI in soccer and tennis players with LBP: “reports frequent episodes of muscle spasms”, “reports feelings of giving way or back giving out” and “Pain increased with sudden, trivial, or mild movements”. Regarding objective identifiers of FLSI, “positive prone instability test”, “aberrant movement during active and passive trunk flexion-extension“ and “poor lumbopelvic control” were significantly related to FLSI in these athletes. Conclusions. In this preliminary study, 50% of the athletes with LBP presented a FLSI. Some subjective and objective symptoms are significantly related to FLSI in soccer and tennis players. Implications. Athletes with LSI should be targeted for retraining to restore normal movement control. [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 97 (14 ULg)

Relevance: LBP is common among tennis players. More than one third of professional tennis players reported LBP as reason for missing at least one tournament. As impaired lumbar motor functions have been associated with LBP, it appears particularly relevant to assess lumbopelvic movement control in tennis players. Methods: Twenty amateur tennis players (male, 22.9 ± 3.0 years) were included. Subjects were pooled into two groups: 10 players with chronic LBP (mean pain duration: 3.1 ± 2.6 years, pain severity score: 3.5/10 on a pain visual analogue scale) and 10 players without LBP. The Bent Knee Fall Out (BKFO) test was used to assess the players’ ability to control movement of lumbopelvic region. BKFO was performed in supine position and monitored by means of two pressure biofeedback units inflated to 40 mmHg and positioned under the lumbar spine of the participant. The reliability of this test has been previously assessed. Players were instructed to make an active abduction-external rotation movement of the hip (45°) without concomitant lumbopelvic movement of the pelvis and low back. Pressure modification (mmHg) was recorded, each side was assessed. Results: Tennis players with LBP had a worse lumbopelvic movement control than players without LBP both for dominant (9.0 mm Hg vs 3.4 mmHg, P<0.05) as well for the non-dominant side (9.1 mmHg vs 4.6 mmHg, P<0.05). Conclusions: Tennis players with LBP experience similar alterations of motor control as those observed in sedentary people with LBP. However, it remains unclear if these alterations are the cause of the consequence of chronic LBP. Implications: Further prospective studies should assess the cause or effect relationship and should determine whether motor control exercises are effective in tennis players with chronic LBP.
