The literature on conditioned pain modulation (CPM) is inconclusive in relation to low-back pain and it is unclear how CPM affects temporal summation as a proxy of central pain integration. The aim of this study was to examine whether the CPM effect would be different on pain induced by temporal summation than single stimuli in a group of low back pain patients.
