Psychologically-based interventions for adults with chronic neuropathic pain: A scoping review.


Oguchi M, Nicholas MK, Asghari A, Sanders D, Wrigley PJ


As psychologically-based interventions have been shown to have clinical utility for adults with chronic pain generally, a similar benefit might be expected in the management of chronic neuropathic pain (NeuP). However, to date this has not been established, with existing systematic reviews on this topic being hampered by the scarcity of Randomised Controlled Trials (RCTs). This review aimed to identify the type of psychologically-based interventions studied for adults with chronic NeuP. It also aimed to assess whether there are enough RCTs to justify undertaking an updated systematic review.
