This trial is evaluating whether Treatment will improve 1 primary outcome and 10 secondary outcomes in patients with Pain, Postoperative. Measurement will happen over the course of baseline; prior to surgery.
This trial requires 90 total participants across 1 different treatment groups
This trial involves a single treatment. Treatment is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. There is no placebo group. The treatments being tested are not being studied for commercial purposes.
In a large number of people, postoperative pain is multifactorial, with many factors, including psychological. Pain perception is modulated by a variety of biological and psychological factors and, in particular, psychological pain processing.
Noninvasive therapy with pain medication, physical therapy, and counseling are commonly recommended for all kinds of people who have a physical disorder and who are currently undergoing treatment or evaluation. There are few studies that compare the treatment of people who are in acute pain with those who have chronic pain issues. Most of these studies recommend a single therapy or multi-modal approach. There is also a paucity of comprehensive guidelines for prescribing medication to treat chronic pain. In this article, we describe the treatments commonly recommended for adults with chronic pain who are being evaluated at a tertiary care center. Based on the scientific literature and the consensus of the clinical staff, we suggest an integrated approach incorporating multiple medications to control pain over the long term.
Pain is a common symptom of acute pain, and postoperative pain in infants and children is a growing issue. The children are often treated empirically with acetaminophen or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, and their pain is often inadequate. Pain assessment, education, and appropriate pain management for children with pain is key in acute pain management. Physicians and other health care providers should be counseled about a possible role for PONV in children with postoperative pain.
The study results provide support for the concept of a multifactorial etiology for postoperative pain and that pain may be more amenable to therapy than historically acknowledged.
Around 810,000 Americans a year experience postoperative spinal-cord or epidural anesthesia associated [back pain](https://www.withpower.com/clinical-trials/back-pain) or pelvic-pelvic pains after a hysterectomy, prostatectomy, or colorectal tumor surgery.
Postoperative pain is important in perioperative management. It has significant effects on patient's recovery, satisfaction, and quality of life. Inappropriate analgesics and opioid-related side effects are important factors for the postoperative pain management.
Despite the importance of postoperative [pain management](https://www.withpower.com/clinical-trials/pain-management), the treatment for the pain has not changed dramatically since the introduction of opioids in the surgical setting. There is still great need for effective analgesics that are convenient to administer such as non-opioid or non-psychotropic.
Our analyses suggest postoperative pain is a complex disorder. As many patients, we have not been able to reduce pain by using pharmacological or interventional methods. Therefore, as pain specialists we must be mindful of the need to increase our understanding of the pain experience and ensure the patient's safety and welfare. We also need to be aware of the emerging use of complementary analgesic, as some may be more effective than opioids. To date, no research has investigated the therapeutic potential of complementary analgesics. Therefore, we need to further understand their mechanism of action and their potential for side effects, to facilitate their use appropriately.
A good knowledge of the results of the published studies on treatment for chronic postoperative pain is indispensable when the decision to use systemic or local analgesic therapy is made.
Participation in clinical trials for pain is an option for patients recovering from a variety of surgeries, including major joint surgery. Because the studies are highly regulated, selection of appropriate surgical patients for these trials is a critical challenge for the surgeon. In our experience, patients with the expectation that they will not receive a full benefit from participating in a clinical trial for pain after surgery can make an informed decision about participating in a clinical trial. A pain trial may not be appropriate for patients who expect to regain full return to active functional status within 7 days of surgery. An attempt to collect data on their use of opioid after surgery should be part of routine postoperative pain management.
Patients who received multimodal analgesia were significantly more likely to report no pain or mild/no pain compared with patients who did not receive multimodal pain relief.
With current technologies and treatment, postoperative pain is a manageable problem. In this cohort study, the rate of pain postoperatively was moderate at 4 months of follow-up. Pain remained manageable when measured by the number of medications prescribed and the total daily doses of opioids provided to the patient.
