Muscle pain induced by hypertonic saline in the knee extensors decreases single-limb isometric time to task failure
TLDR
It is demonstrated that hypertonic saline increases the intensity of pain during exercise, which results in a faster occurrence of exercise-induced fatigue.
Affective - behavioral symptoms and coping strategies of pain in patients with fibromyalgia (FM)
TLDR
The affective-behavioral symptoms are associated with perception of pain and are relate to the use of passive strategies, and focused on emotion as a mechanism to confront the experience of pain.
THE EFFECT OF NOXIOUS STIMULATION OF THE RIGHT MASSETER MUSCLE ON SINGLE MOTOR UNIT ACTIVITY AT TWO SITES IN THE MASSETER MUSCLE DURING STANDARDIZED JAW CLOSING TASKS
TLDR
The Integrated Pain Adaptation Model and the New Theory on the Motor Adaptation to Pain, which have attempted to explain the comprehensive organization of the jaw motor system along with psychosocial dimensions in order to understand the effects of pain on muscle activity, are proposed.
Pain relief for women with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia undergoing colposcopy treatment.
TLDR
To assess whether the administration of pain relief (analgesia) reduces pain during colposcopy treatment and in the postoperative period, 19 trials aimed at reducing pain in women who underwent treatment for CIN were compared.
Effects of Whole-Body Heating on Chronic Low Back Pain
TLDR
Results suggest promising potential for whole body heating as a non-invasive, non-pharmacologic method of treating chronic low back with benefits lasting for days or weeks post-therapy.
Self‐report pain and symptom measures for primary dysmenorrhoea: A critical review
TLDR
Future research needs to strengthen dysmenorrhoea‐specific symptom measures by including a comprehensive list of symptoms based on the pathogenesis of PD, exploring relevant symptom dimensions beyond symptom severity, and testing psychometric properties of the adapted tools using sound methodology and diverse samples.
Are primary and secondary provoked vestibulodynia two different entities? A comparison of pain, psychosocial, and sexual characteristics.
TLDR
Comparisons of the pain, sexual and psychosocial functioning of a large clinical and community-based sample of premenopausal women with PVD1 and PVD2 show that there are no significant differences in the sexual and Psychosocial profiles of women with BRCA-related PVD.
Intrinsic Organization and Function of Human Brain Networks Supporting the Spontaneous Dynamics of Attention and Pain
TLDR
Findings underscore the behavioural significance of activity fluctuations within attention and sensory modulation networks and have implications for understanding of pathological states such as chronic pain, where altered activity dynamics in attention/antinociceptive networks may determine disease prognosis and therapeutic outcomes.
