Does age affect the relationship between pain and disability? : a descriptive study in individuals suffering from chronic low back pain
Abstract : Background: Previous studies have revealed a weak to moderate relationship between pain and disability in individuals suffering from low back pain (LBP). However, to our knowledge, no studies have evaluated if ...
Comparison of transcranial magnetic stimulation measures obtained at rest and under active conditions and their reliability
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) studies investigating motor cortex reorganization in clinical populations use a variety of measurements, with some performed at rest and others with the muscle slightly contracted. ...
Interactions between pain and the motor cortex : insights from research on phantom limb pain and complex regional pain syndrome
Abstract : Purpose: Pain is a significantly disabling problem that often interacts with other deficits during the rehabilitation process. The aim of this paper is to review evidence on interactions between pain and the ...
Can we improve pain and sleep in elderly individuals with transcranial direct current stimulation? : results from a randomized controlled pilot study
