Effectiveness of physical and cognitive-behavioural intervention programmes for chronic musculoskeletal pain in adults: A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials

TLDR
The value of adding CBT to exercise interventions is questionable, as consistent benefits were not seen, and most studies reporting null or small effects but a few studies reporting very large effects up to 2-year follow-up.

The Effectiveness of Cognitive and Behavioural Treatment of Chronic Pain in the Elderly: A Quantitative Review

Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy for persistent pain : does adherence affect outcome at one-month follow-up

TLDR
A review of the available literature on predictors of outcome for persistent pain showed that of the many personal variables investigated to influence outcome, only socioeconomic status (SES), social support, and applying for compensation or disability pension consistently predicted outcome.

Behavioral Treatment for Chronic Low Back Pain: A Systematic Review Within the Framework of the Cochrane Back Review Group

Behavioral treatment seems to be an effective treatment for patients with chronic low back pain,but it is still unknown what type of patients benefit most from whattype of behavioral treatment.

Behavioural treatment for chronic low-back pain.

Behavioural rehabilitation of chronic low back pain: comparison of an operant treatment, an operant-cognitive treatment and an operant-respondent treatment.
