Pain catastrophizing has dimensions of magnification, rumination, and helplessness, being an important evaluator of chronic pain. Studies with mindfulness intervention point to a possible modulation of chronic pain catastrophizing behavior. However, how these facets of mindfulness are associated with the catastrophizing subscales is uncertain. The scope of this study is to verify how the association of mindfulness facets and catastrophizing subdimensions occurs.
