Objectives:Mindfulness-based pain management programs (MBPMs) aim to improve mental and physical health in individuals with chronic pain. In this study, we investigated whether improvement in mental health might require (1) reduction in the sensory pain experience and brain correlates of that experience, and/or (2) improved perceptions of the controllability of pain and corresponding brain activity related to cognitive control and emotional regulation. Methods:Twenty-eight patients with chronic… Expand
Research Findings Using Mindfulness-Based Interventions for Chronic Pain
TLDR
The current evidence is mixed and there are insufficient data to definitively confirm the full impact of the use of MBIs in chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic low back pain, rheumatoid arthritis, and chronic musculoskeletal pain. Expand
Assessing the Effectiveness of Mindfulness in the Treatment of Chronic Back Pain: Use of Quantitative Sensory Pain Assessment
Findings from clinical trials of mindfulness-based interventions (MBI) support significant effects on chronic pain, yet the mechanisms underlying these effects are not well understood. A limitationExpand
Mindfulness interventions and pain management in a patient with encephalomyelitis.
TLDR
The treatment showed a reduction in pain perception, and an improvement in anxious and depressive symptoms, suggesting that MBIs could be useful to relieve disorders related to pain in neurological patients. Expand
Mindfulness is associated with psychological health and moderates pain in knee osteoarthritis.
TLDR
Mindfulness is associated with depression, stress, self-efficacy, and quality of life among knee OA patients and moderates the influence of pain on stress, which suggests that mindfulness may alter the way one copes with pain. Expand
Health-related quality of life improvements among women with chronic pain: comparison of two multidisciplinary interventions
TLDR
This non-randomized study suggests that both NEM and TMP programs improve pain and HRQL among women with chronic pain and sleep quality showed more improvements in NEM while pain intensity in TMP. Expand
Correlations between brain changes and pain management after cognitive and meditative therapies: A systematic review of neuroimaging studies.
TLDR
It is found that regulation of pain by CMT can alter functioning of brain regions in an extensive network including non-nociceptive regions and may represent the clinical implications of changes in brain activity or morphology. Expand
Acceptance- and mindfulness-based interventions for the treatment of chronic pain: a meta-analytic review
TLDR
Current acceptance- and mindfulness-based interventions, while not superior to traditional cognitive behavioral treatments, can be good alternatives. Expand
Mindfulness Meditation and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Intervention Reduces Pain Severity and Sensitivity in Opioid-Treated Chronic Low Back Pain: Pilot Findings from a Randomized Controlled Trial.
TLDR
Meditation-CBT intervention reduced pain severity and sensitivity to experimental thermal pain stimuli in patients with opioid-treated chronic low back pain in a 26-week pilot randomized controlled trial. Expand
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Chronic Pain
Abstract Chronic pain is a prevalent condition that creates extensive suffering and enormous costs to society. It is widely described as a mind–body experience. Limitations of conventional treatmentExpand

The role of mindfulness in a contextual cognitive-behavioral analysis of chronic pain-related suffering and disability
TLDR
Correlation analyses indicated that mindfulness was unrelated to age, gender, education, or chronicity of pain, but was significantly related to multiple measures of patient functioning, and accounted for significant variance in measures of depression, pain‐related anxiety; physical, psychosocial, and “other” disability. Expand
Treating fibromyalgia with mindfulness-based stress reduction: Results from a 3-armed randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Primary outcome analyses did not support the efficacy of MBSR in fibromyalgia, although patients in the MBSS arm appeared to benefit most, and multivariate analysis of secondary measures indicated modest benefits for MBSr patients. Expand
Evaluation of the breathworks mindfulness-based pain management programme: effects on well-being and multiple measures of mindfulness.
TLDR
The results of the pilot investigation of the impact on well-being of the Breathworks mindfulness-based pain management programme support the short-term efficacy of the breathworks programme and reinforce the importance of acceptance for positive outcome with chronic pain patients. Expand
Mindfulness-based interventions for chronic pain: a systematic review of the evidence.
OBJECTIVES Chronic pain is a common disabling illness that does not completely respond to current medical treatments. As a consequence, in recent years many alternative interventions have beenExpand
Pain attenuation through mindfulness is associated with decreased cognitive control and increased sensory processing in the brain.
TLDR
Investigating the underlying brain mechanisms by which the state of mindfulness reduces pain reveals a unique mechanism of pain modulation, comprising increased sensory processing and decreased cognitive control, and is in sharp contrast to established pain modulation mechanisms. Expand
Brain Mechanisms Supporting the Modulation of Pain by Mindfulness Meditation
TLDR
Assessment of neural mechanisms by which mindfulness meditation influences pain in healthy human participants indicates that meditation engages multiple brain mechanisms that alter the construction of the subjectively available pain experience from afferent information. Expand
Mindfulness-based stress reduction and health benefits. A meta-analysis.
TLDR
Although derived from a relatively small number of studies, these results suggest that MBSR may help a broad range of individuals to cope with their clinical and nonclinical problems. Expand
The effects of brief mindfulness meditation training on experimentally induced pain.
TLDR
Changes in the mindfulness and anxiety assessments suggest that meditation's analgesic effects are related to reduced anxiety and the enhanced ability to focus on the present moment. Expand
Relationship between perceived self-control of pain, pain description and functioning
TLDR
The data indicate an association between ability to control pain and variations in magnitude and periodicity of pain, and strategies which provide reduction in pain intensity and frequency might be expected to result in increased perception of personal control of pain. Expand
Arthritic pain is processed in brain areas concerned with emotions and fear.
TLDR
The results suggest that studies of experimental pain provide a relevant but quantitatively incomplete picture of brain activity during arthritic pain, and the search for new analgesics for arthritis that act on the brain should focus on drugs that modify this circuitry. Expand
