About

The primary objectives of this study are to: * Evaluate the ability of the older adults to understand the biological processes underneath a pain experience. * Evaluate their ability to modify their behaviors and beliefs about pain and health.

Full description

The purpose of this study is to test the effectivity of a single, group-based session of pain neuroscience education (PNE) on old adults. Participants will be 65 years or older, and they will be recruited from primary care medical clinics, public lectures, community centers and through the word of mouth. The intervention consist in one educational session of pain neuroscience education delivered by a physiotherapist. The study design is a single arm, crossover clinical trial, participants will be assessed in 3 different times (1 month before PNE ,pre-PNE, post-PNE) for knowledge of pain neuroscience, pain attitudes, pain catastrophizing and pain-related fear of movement.

Description:
Procedure: This educational intervention is based in the latest evidence of pain neuroscience education, used in multiple rehabilitation programs. Its aim is to change the subject's pain understanding, teaching them the biological processes underneath the pain construct, as a mechanism to reduce itself and its related maladaptive thoughts and behaviors.
