Douleur et syndrome douloureux régional complexe : quelle place pour l’hypnose en kinésithérapie ?

Abstract : Evidence levels of analgesic physiotherapy techniques for CRPS are low. Hypnosis is a proven analgesic tool. The purpose of this work is to determine whether hypnosis can be beneficial to the physiotherapists in the management of pain for patients with CRPS. Method : implementation of a questionnaire for physiotherapists with the aim of analysing the analgesic techniques used, and to compare the results in physiotherapists using or not using hypnosis in addition. Results : 68 complete responses were analysed. The analgesic techniques most used by physiotherapists are not those with the best levels of evidence. No difference in pain reduction has been objectified according to whether or not hypnosis is used. Hypnosis appears to be beneficial in reducing treatment time, the frequency of stopping the session and the satisfaction of both the physiotherapist and the patient. Discussion : hypnosis appears to be beneficial as an analgesic tool for both the physiotherapist and the patient in the management of chronic pain. But the low response rate to the questionnaire does not allow to conclude with certainty on the added value of the tool. Wider studies are therefore recommended.
