INTRODUCTION Obese patients have a high prevalence of painful musculoskeletal disorders that may decrease after massive weight loss. Pain thresholds may be different in obese participants. OBJECTIVES To assess the sensitivity and pain detection thresholds, through the application of an electrical sensitivity, before and after massive weight loss, and to compare the thresholds obtained with those in a control population. METHODS The sensitivity and pain detection thresholds obtained in… CONTINUE READING
