    Background: Pain MESHD Pain HP management services and support programs have been closed during pandemic. Self-management options, particularly for chronic pain MESHD chronic pain HP, is required which can be undertaken at ones own convenience and without leaving home. Objectives: To evaluate the impact of tele-yoga therapy on patients suffering with chronic pain MESHD chronic pain HP reducing pain MESHD pain HP intensity, disability, anxiety HP and depression. Material and methods: In total 18 patients with different chronic pain MESHD chronic pain HP diagnosis were recruited to individual yoga Therapy sessions twice a week at home (tele-yoga) using a videoconference app. Each participant followed set of practices every day at home. Main outcome measures included pain MESHD pain HP intensity, pain MESHD pain HP disability, anxiety HP and depression scores. Data were collected at baseline and after 6-weeks of intervention. Results: There were significant improvement in pain MESHD pain HP intensity from Baseline to 6-weeks (P<0.001); also pain MESHD pain HP disability (P<0,001). Both scores of anxiety HP and depression reduced at the end of intervention period (P<0,001; P<0,001). Conclusions: Pilot results suggest that tele-yoga therapy may be an effective tool to self-manage chronic pain MESHD chronic pain HP and related functional and psychological impacts. Further larger studies, randomized, controlled trials are needed to confirm the preliminary outcome.

    Countries across the world imposed lockdown restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been proposed that lockdown conditions disproportionately impact those living with chronic pain MESHD chronic pain HP, requiring adaptation to treatment and care strategies. We investigated how lockdown restrictions in the United Kingdom impacted individuals with chronic pain MESHD chronic pain HP (N=431) relative to a healthy control group (N=88) using an online survey. In accordance with the fear-avoidance model, we hypothesised increases in perceived pain MESHD pain HP and psychological distress that would be mediated by pain MESHD pain HP catastrophizing. Survey questions answered during the lockdown period, probing patients self-perceived changes retrospectively, revealed that people with chronic pain MESHD chronic pain HP perceived increases in their pain MESHD pain HP severity compared to before lockdown. They were also more adversely affected by lockdown compared to pain MESHD pain HP-free individuals, demonstrating greater increases in anxiety HP and depressed mood, increased loneliness and reduced levels of physical exercise. Pain MESHD Pain HP catastrophizing was found to be an important factor in predicting the extent of self-perceived increases in pain MESHD pain HP, and accounted for the relationship between decreased mood and pain MESHD pain HP. Perceived decreases in levels of physical exercise also independently predicted perceptions of increased pain MESHD pain HP. Interestingly, actual changes in pain MESHD pain HP symptoms (measured at two time points at pre- and post-lockdown in a subgroup, N = 85) did not change significantly on average, but those reporting increases also demonstrated greater baseline levels of pain MESHD pain HP catastrophizing. Overall, the findings suggest that remote pain MESHD pain HP management provision to target reduction of catastrophizing and increases to physical activity could be beneficial for chronic pain MESHD chronic pain HP patients in overcoming the adverse effects of lockdown.
