(Wiley) Among patients with osteoarthritis of the knee, women experienced greater sensitivity to various pain modalities -- such as lower tolerance to heat, cold, and pressure -- and greater widesprea...
Background: In this study, we investigated whether an abnormal hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis response to psychosocial stress at 18 years of age is associated with musculoskeletal (MS) pai...
A 34 year old white man presented to his general practitioner with a one year history of progressive bilateral hand pain. There was no trauma history or previous arthropathy. He consumed 84 units of.....
Genetics play a key role in knee pain sensitivity, according to a team of researchers studying knee osteoarthritis patients.
Nursing researchers examined the validity, sensitivity, and specificity of symptoms for detecting breast cancer-related related lymphedema. The study also determined the best clinical cutoff point for...
Pain sensitivity and central excitability improve after transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) independent of age, type of back pain and disability, a research team highlights in The Journ...
(MedPage Today) -- Early targeting of inflammation may be effective for pain prevention
A new study suggests an entirely different set of targets, pathways and cells may be responsible for mechanical pain sensitivity in males and females.
We examined changes in pain sensitivity in the rubber hand illusion (RHI). Experiment 1 investigated changes in pain tolerance immediately after a "healthy" and "wounded" RHI when immersing the hand i...
Age-related changes occur in both the peripheral and central nervous system, yet little is known about the influence of chronic pain on pain sensitivity in older persons. The aim of this study was to ...
High anxiety sensitivity (AS) has been associated with elevated pain-related anxiety in anxiety and pain samples. The present study investigated (a) the associations among the lower order dimensions o...
Last year (VSS 2014), we reported that adults' ability to tolerate pain predicted performance on tests of spatial contrast sensitivity (CS). More specifically, those who were more sensitive to pain al...
Upper limb fracture is a common musculoskeletal injury that can lead to marked pain-related disability. Unlike other common painful musculoskeletal conditions, such as low back pain, little considerat...
