Original Source: Influence of pain location and hand dominance on scapular kinematics and EMG activities: an exploratory study.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Assessment of three-dimensional kinematics and electromyography (EMG) activities is common in patients with chronic neck pain. However, the effect of hand dominance and neck pain location on the measurement of movement and EMG characteristics is still unclear. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of neck pain location and arm dominance on the scapular kinematics and muscle EMG activities in patients with chronic neck pain. METHODS: Thirty subjects (10 mal...

Spinal Manipulative Therapy-Specific Changes in Pain Sensitivity in Individuals With Low Back Pain (NCT01168999).

Spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) is effective for some individuals experiencing low back pain; however, the mechanisms are not established regarding the role of placebo. SMT is associated with change...

Distinction between hand dominance and hand preference in primates: a behavioral investigation of manual dexterity in nonhuman primates (macaques) and human subjects.

Background The present study aimed to determine and confront hand preference (hand chosen in priority to perform a manual dexterity task) and hand dominance (hand with best motor performance) in eight...

Pain Hypervigilance is Associated with Greater Clinical Pain Severity and Enhanced Experimental Pain Sensitivity Among Adults with Symptomatic Knee Osteoarthritis.

Pain hypervigilance is an important aspect of the fear-avoidance model of pain that may help explain individual differences in pain sensitivity among persons with knee osteoarthritis (OA).

The important role of CNS facilitation and inhibition for chronic pain.

Multiple studies have demonstrated that the pain experience among individuals is highly variable. Even under circumstances where the tissue injuries are similar, individual pain experiences may vary d...
