Embodied Pain: There is a Need to Reflect Interactions between Cognitions, Behavior and Neuromuscular Activity in Chronic Pain.



This issue of the Clinical Journal of Pain includes a series of review articles from the international symposium "Approach to physical activity in pain: translation from theory to the lab, from the clinic to the patient" which was held as an Official Satellite Symposium of the 17 World Congress on Pain, 2018 in Boston, USA and organized by the Mind and Pain in Motion Research Group (Chair: MIH) and colleagues from the field of clinical rehabilitation in Austria (EF, GE). The symposium brought together world's leading researchers from multiple disciplines to further advance our understanding of the complex interaction of cognitive, behavioral and neuromuscular mechanisms that may play a role for the development and maintenance of chronic musculoskeletal pain. Following up on a previous Satellite Meeting 2012 in Nottwil, Switzerland and the first Mind and Pain in Motion Symposium, held 2016 at Ruhr University of Bochum, Germany, the 2018 meeting in Boston presented (1) new theoretical approaches in psychobiological pain research, (2) current experimental research in endogenous pain modulation, initiated by exercise behavior, stress and pain cognitions (3) latest findings on the phenomena of physical overactvity, endurance-related pain response pattern, neuromuscular activity and possible interrelations, and (4) clinical approaches to a more individualized, patient-oriented management in the field of musculoskeletal pain disorders.
