Chronic joint pain is a widespread problem that frequently occurs with aging and trauma. Pain occurs most often in synovial joints, the body's load bearing joints. The mechanical and molecular mechanisms contributing to synovial joint pain are reviewed using two examples, the cervical spinal facet joints and the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Although much work has focused on the macroscale mechanics of joints in health and disease, the combined influence of tissue mechanics, molecular… Expand
The Physiological Basis of Cervical Facet-Mediated Persistent Pain: Basic Science and Clinical Challenges.
TLDR
In vivo models of cervical facet injury that reproduce clinical pain symptoms have been developed and used to define the complicated and multifaceted electrophysiological, inflammatory, and nociceptive signaling cascades that are involved in the pathophysiology of whiplash facet pain. Expand
Experimental Methods to Inform Diagnostic Approaches for Painful TMJ Osteoarthritis
TLDR
The articular and neural contributors to TMJ pain, imaging modalities with clinical potential to identify TMJ OA early, and future directions for clinical management of TMJOA are reviewed in the context of evidence in the field. Expand
Intra-articular collagenase in the spinal facet joint induces pain, DRG neuron dysregulation and increased MMP-1 absent evidence of joint destruction
TLDR
The induction of sustained sensitivity and nociception without joint damage may explain the clinical disconnect in which symptomatic joint pain patients present without radiographic evidence of joint destruction. Expand

TLDR
The results validate the ratgnawmeter as an efficient method to evaluate functional TMD pain by evaluating chewing time, and this protocol as a model with face and construct validities to investigate symptomatic TMD mechanisms. Expand
Neuroimmune interactions in painful TMD: Mechanisms and treatment implications
  • Yating Yi, Xueman Zhou, Xin Xiong, Jun Wang

TLDR
The role of neuroimmune interactions in the onset of painful TMD is discussed from the peripheral and centralized perspectives, and how understanding this mechanism could provide new treatment options is discussed. Expand
Concentration dependent effects of fibroblast-like synoviocytes on collagen gel multiscale biomechanics & neuronal signaling: Implications for modeling human ligamentous tissues.
TLDR
A novel DRG-FLS co-culture collagen gel system is presented that provides a platform for investigating the complex biomechanics and physiology of human joint capsules, and is the first relating DRG and FLS interactions. Expand
The Effect of Lumbar Spine Osteoarthritis on the Manifestation of Central Sensitization and Neurogenic Inflammation in Musculoskeletal Tissues in Rats
TLDR
The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate the presence of neuropeptides related to NI in heterologous knee and quadriceps muscle tissue as a response of experimentally-induced lumbar facet OA disorder. Expand
Propargylglycine decreases neuro-immune interaction inducing pain response in temporomandibular joint inflammation model.
TLDR
The results elucidated the molecular mechanisms by which H2S exerts its pro-inflammatory and pro-nociceptive role in the orofacial region by alterations in both local tissue and TG. Expand
Increased Substance P Immunoreactivity in Ipsilateral Knee Cartilage of Rats Exposed to Lumbar Spine Injury
TLDR
The hypothesis that neurogenic mechanisms may mediate the spread of SP to neurosegmentally linked heterologous joints affecting the distal cartilage homeostasis is supported. Expand
Metallic crown-induced occlusal trauma as a protocol to evaluate inflammatory response in temporomandibular joint and periodontal tissues of rats
TLDR
This study demonstrates in detail a methodology of Occlusal trauma resulting from the cementation of metallic crowns in the lower molars of rats, mimicking occlusal interferences commonly evaluated in the dental clinic, which makes new studies to better understand the mechanisms involved in the occLusal trauma of orofacial tissues possible.

Painful facet joint injury induces neuronal stress activation in the DRG: Implications for cellular mechanisms of pain
TLDR
Findings suggest neuronal stress activation is associated with painful facet joint injury, and that joint loading may directly mediate the behavior of DRG neurons in this class of injury. Expand

TLDR
The data support existing clinical reports suggesting that therapeutic interventions directed at the facet capsule may be effective in treating this painful injury, and suggest that different joint loading scenarios produced varied inflammatory responses in the CNS. Expand
A novel rodent neck pain model of facet-mediated behavioral hypersensitivity: implications for persistent pain and whiplash injury
TLDR
It is suggested that a facet joint tensile strain threshold may exist above which pain symptoms result and continued investigation into the relationship between injury mechanics and nociceptive physiology will strengthen insight into painful facet injury mechanisms. Expand

A comprehensive review of the breadth and depth of knowledge regarding the mechanical and adaptive responses of the facet joint and its tissues across a variety of relevant size scales is presented. Expand

TLDR
Recent studies indicate that low stretch levels activate proprioceptors in the facet-joint capsule, suggesting that facet capsule overstretch is a possible cause of persistent neck pain. Expand
Joint distraction magnitude is associated with different behavioral outcomes and substance P levels for cervical facet joint loading in the rat.
TLDR
Joint distractions producing different behavioral outcomes modulate SP mRNA and protein in the DRG and spinal cord, suggesting that SP responses may be involved with different temporal responses in painful joint loading. Expand

TLDR
The presence of inflammatory cytokines in the osteoarthritic joint raises the question whether they may directly participate in pain generation by acting on innervating joint nociceptors, and what is known about their contribution to joint pain based on studies in animal models. Expand

TLDR
OA pain is a mixed phenomenon where nociceptive and neuropathic mechanisms are involved in both the local and central levels, and should be considered as a complex and not unique pain condition. Expand
Simulated whiplash modulates expression of the glutamatergic system in the spinal cord suggesting spinal plasticity is associated with painful dynamic cervical facet loading.
TLDR
The results suggest that the spinal glutamatergic system may potentiate the persistent behavioral hypersensitivity that is produced following dynamic whiplash-like joint loading; chronic Whiplash pain may be alleviated by blocking mGluR5 expression and/or enhancing glutamate transport through the neuronal transporter EAAC1.
