ABSTRACT Teaching people about the neurobiology and neurophysiology of their pain experience has a therapeutic effect and has been referred to as pain neuroscience education (PNE). Various high-quality randomized controlled trials and systematic reviews have shown increasing efficacy of PNE decreasing pain, disability, pain catastrophization, movement restrictions, and healthcare utilization. Research studies, however, by virtue of their design, are very controlled environments and, therefore… Expand

Interventional Clinical Trial
Pain Neuroscience Education (PNE) has been shown to be effective to alter beliefs and decrease pain among individuals with musculoskeletal pain. Additionally, PNE has been shown… Expand

The clinical implementation of pain neuroscience education: A survey study
TLDR
The same five patient characteristics associated with success were also associated with failure of PNE, albeit in a different ranking order, highlighting the need to further investigate the factorsassociated with success and failure ofPNE. Expand
Applicability of pain neuroscience education: Where are we now?
TLDR
The applicability of results of studies focused on PNE is analysed, which has not been done previously and markedly points out the awareness of clinicians on the need for an accurate contextualization when choosing PNE as an intervention in clinical practice. Expand
Neuroscience Education as Therapy for Migraine and Overlapping Pain Conditions: A Scoping Review.
TLDR
NET is an established treatment for pain conditions, and future research should focus on refining NET for migraine, examining delivery modality, dosage, components of other behavioral therapies to integrate, and migraine-specific NET curricula. Expand
Teaching patients about pain: It works, but what should we call it?
TLDR
A systematic review showed that teaching patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain more about pain from a biological and physiological perspective has a positive effect on pain, function, physical movement, and pain catastrophization. Expand
Effectiveness of Pain Neurophysiology Education on Musculoskeletal Pain: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.
TLDR
Overall quality of evidence was low, supporting PNE being safe and having small to moderate effects on pain at both time points, and on disability as well as psychological distress at post-intervention. Expand
Immediate effect of pain neuroscience education for recent onset low back pain: an exploratory single arm trial
TLDR
The present pilot study provides the rationale for studying larger groups of patients in controlled studies over longer periods of time and suggests PNE may be an interesting option in the treatment of patients with non-chronic mechanical LBP. Expand
The use of pain neuroscience education in older adults with chronic back and/or lower extremity pain.
TLDR
PNE is a feasible and potentially efficacious treatment for older adults with chronic pain and there were statically significant positive improvements in gait speed, pain disability, and fear of movement after the intervention. Expand
The use of pain neuroscience education in older adults with chronic back and/or lower extremity pain
TLDR
PNE is a feasible and potentially efficacious treatment for older adults with chronic pain and there were statically significant positive improvements in gait speed, pain disability, and fear of movement after the intervention. Expand
Combining Stress Management With Pain Neuroscience Education and Exercise Therapy in People With Whiplash-Associated Disorders: A Clinical Perspective.
TLDR
Current and previous evidence is used to explain why and how a comprehensive and multimodal treatment for people with WAD-consisting of a combination of pain neuroscience education, cognition-targeted exercise therapy, and stress management-can be applied in clinical practice. Expand
Learning pain neuroscience education from the WHOQOL-Bref instrument in the classroom. Case reports
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: During the undergraduate course students have the opportunity to learn and understand health promotion and prevention, quality of life and other concepts, but they rarelyExpand

TLDR
The underlying clinical biology of pain mechanisms is provided and pain patterns related to the mechanisms are proposed and some clinical decision making skills are proposed. Expand
The effect of neuroscience education on pain, disability, anxiety, and stress in chronic musculoskeletal pain.
TLDR
There is compelling evidence that an educational strategy addressing neurophysiology and neurobiology of pain can have a positive effect on pain, disability, catastrophization, and physical performance in chronic MSK pain. Expand

TLDR
The historical context and beginnings of Explaining Pain are described, suggesting that it is a pragmatic application of the biopsychosocial model of pain, but differentiating it from cognitive behavioral therapy and educational components of early multidisciplinary pain management programs. Expand
Pain neurophysiology education for the management of individuals with chronic low back pain: systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
There was very low quality evidence that PNE is beneficial for pain, physical-function, psychological- function, and social-function and there is a need for more studies investigating PNE by different research groups to support early promising findings. Expand

TLDR
Therapeutic neuroscience education can potentially be delivered to suffering pain patients in remote areas or to individuals who have time and financial constraints, and likely at a significant reduced cost via e-mail. Expand
A Randomized Controlled Trial of Intensive Neurophysiology Education in Chronic Low Back Pain
TLDR
The results suggest that pain neurophysiology education, but not back school type education, should be included in a wider pain management approach. Expand
From acute musculoskeletal pain to chronic widespread pain and fibromyalgia: application of pain neurophysiology in manual therapy practice.
TLDR
An in-depth review of basic and clinical research was performed to design a theoretical framework for manual therapy in patients with chronic widespread pain/fibromyalgia, finding that manual therapy might be able to influence the process of chronicity in three different ways. Expand
Pain Physiology Education Improves Health Status and Endogenous Pain Inhibition in Fibromyalgia: A Double-Blind Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
These results suggest that FM patients are able to understand and remember the complex material about pain physiology and seems to be a useful component in the treatment of FM patients as it improves health status and endogenous pain inhibition in the long term. Expand
Use of an abbreviated neuroscience education approach in the treatment of chronic low back pain: A case report
TLDR
NE aimed at decreasing fear associated with movement may be a valuable adjunct to movement-based therapy, such as exercise, for patients with CLBP. Expand
Use of Therapeutic Neuroscience Education to address psychosocial factors associated with acute low back pain: a case report
TLDR
Therapeutic Neuroscience Education (TNE) has been shown to be beneficial in changing a patient’s cognition regarding their pain state, which may result in decrease fear, anxiety and catastrophization. Expand
