  • A systematic review with meta-analyses of the association between stigma

      Authors: Hickling; Lauren M.; Allani, Selsebil; Cella, Matteo; Scott, Whitney
      Abstract: imageStigma is common in people experiencing chronic pain and there are indications that it may adversely affect pain outcomes. However, to date, there is no systematic review exploring the impact of stigma on chronic pain-related outcomes. This systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to examine the association between stigma and key chronic pain outcomes and differences in stigma between pain conditions. Seven databases were searched for studies reporting a measure of association between stigma and at least one pain outcome in adults with chronic pain. Studies were screened by 2 independent researchers. Nineteen studies met eligibility criteria and data were extracted, quality-assessed, and narratively synthesised and meta-analysed where possible. Meta-analyses of bivariate cross-sectional correlations demonstrated significant positive correlations between stigma and pain intensity, disability, and depression, with small to moderate effects. Data from 2 prospective studies and those only reporting multivariate analyses that were not included in meta-analyses further supported these findings. There was some evidence that individuals who experience pain conditions with less clear pathophysiology may report greater stigma, although more research is needed. The review highlights that there is a growing number of studies on stigma in the pain field showing an adverse association between stigma and chronic pain outcomes.

      Abstract: imageAbstract: The rostral ventromedial medulla (RVM) is a crucial structure in the descending pain modulatory system, playing a key role as a relay for both the facilitation and inhibition of pain. The chronic social defeat stress (CSDS) model has been widely used to study stress-induced behavioral impairments associated with depression in rodents. Several studies suggest that CSDS also causes changes related to chronic pain. In this study, we aimed to investigate the involvement of the RVM in CSDS-induced behavioral impairments, including those associated with chronic pain. We used chemogenetics to activate or inhibit the RVM during stress. The results indicated that the RVM is a vital hub influencing stress outcomes. Rostral ventromedial medulla activation during CSDS ameliorates all the stress outcomes, including social avoidance, allodynia, hyperalgesia, anhedonia, and behavioral despair. In addition, RVM inhibition in animals exposed to a subthreshold social defeat stress protocol induces a susceptible phenotype, facilitating all stress outcomes. Finally, chronic RVM inhibition—without any social stress stimulus—induces chronic pain but not depressive-like behaviors. Our findings provide insights into the comorbidity between chronic pain and depression by indicating the involvement of the RVM in establishing social stress–induced behavioral responses associated with both chronic pain and depression.

  • Identification of group differences in predictive anticipatory biasing of
           pain during uncertainty: preparing for the worst but hoping for the best

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Strigo; Irina A.; Kadlec, Molly; Mitchell, Jennifer M.; Simmons, Alan N.
      Abstract: imagePain anticipation during conditions of uncertainty can unveil intrinsic biases, and understanding these biases can guide pain treatment interventions. This study used machine learning and functional magnetic resonance imaging to predict anticipatory responses in a pain anticipation experiment. One hundred forty-seven participants that included healthy controls (n = 57) and individuals with current and/or past mental health diagnosis (n = 90) received cues indicating upcoming pain stimuli: 2 cues predicted high and low temperatures, while a third cue introduced uncertainty. Accurate differentiation of neural patterns associated with specific anticipatory conditions was observed, involving activation in the anterior short gyrus of the insula and the nucleus accumbens. Three distinct response profiles emerged: subjects with a negative bias towards high pain anticipation, those with a positive bias towards low pain anticipation, and individuals whose predictions during uncertainty were unbiased. These profiles remained stable over one year, were consistent across diagnosed psychopathologies, and correlated with cognitive coping styles and underlying insula anatomy. The findings suggest that individualized and stable pain anticipation occurs in uncertain conditions.

  • The effects of virtual reality neuroscience-based therapy on clinical and

      Authors: Čeko; Marta; Baeuerle, Tassilo; Webster, Lynn; Wager, Tor D.; Lumley, Mark A.
      Abstract: imageChronic pain remains poorly managed. The integration of immersive technologies (ie, virtual reality [VR]) with neuroscience-based principles may provide effective pain treatment by targeting cognitive and affective neural processes that maintain pain and therefore potentially changing neurobiological circuits associated with pain chronification and amplification. We tested the effectiveness of a novel VR neuroscience-based therapy (VRNT) to improve pain-related outcomes in n = 31 participants with chronic back pain, evaluated against usual care (waitlist control; n = 30) in a 2-arm randomized clinical trial (NCT04468074). We also conducted pre-treatment and post-treatment MRI to test whether VRNT affects brain networks previously linked to chronic pain and treatment effects. Compared with the control condition, VRNT led to significantly reduced pain intensity (g = 0.63) and pain interference (g = 0.84) at post-treatment vs pre-treatment, with effects persisting at 2-week follow-up. These improvements were partially mediated by reduced kinesiophobia and pain catastrophizing. Several secondary clinical outcomes were also improved by VRNT, including disability, quality of life, sleep, and fatigue. In addition, VRNT was associated with increases in dorsomedial prefrontal functional connectivity with the superior somatomotor, anterior prefrontal and visual cortices, and decreased white matter fractional anisotropy in the corpus callosum adjacent to the anterior cingulate, relative to the control condition. Thus, VRNT showed preliminary efficacy in significantly reducing pain and improving overall functioning, possibly through changes in somatosensory and prefrontal brain networks.

      Authors: Chen; Ouyang; Jiang, Changyu; Berta, Temugin; Powell Gray, Bethany; Furutani, Kenta; Sullenger, Bruce A.; Ji, Ru-Rong
      Abstract: imageSecreted microRNAs (miRNAs) have been detected in various body fluids including the cerebrospinal fluid, yet their direct role in regulating synaptic transmission remains uncertain. We found that intrathecal injection of low dose of let-7b (1 μg) induced short-term (2 weeks, which was abolished in Tlr7−/− mice. The high dose of let-7b also induced microgliosis in the spinal cord. Of interest, intrathecal minocycline only inhibited let-7b–induced mechanical allodynia in male but not female mice. Our findings indicate that the secreted microRNA let-7b has the capacity to provoke pain through both neuronal and glial signaling, thereby establishing miRNA as an emerging neuromodulator.

      Authors: Moreau; Nathan; Korai, Sohaib Ali; Sepe, Giovanna; Panetsos, Fivos; Papa, Michele; Cirillo, Giovanni
      Abstract: imageBotulinum toxin (BoNT), a presynaptic inhibitor of acetylcholine (Ach) release at the neuromuscular junction (NMJ), is a successful and safe drug for the treatment of several neurological disorders. However, a wide and recent literature review has demonstrated that BoNT exerts its effects not only at the “periphery” but also within the central nervous system (CNS). Studies from animal models, in fact, have shown a retrograde transport to the CNS, thus modulating synaptic function. The increasing number of articles reporting efficacy of BoNT on chronic neuropathic pain (CNP), a complex disease of the CNS, demonstrates that the central mechanisms of BoNT are far from being completely elucidated. In this new light, BoNT might interfere with the activity of spinal, brain stem, and cortical circuitry, modulating excitability and the functional organization of CNS in healthy conditions. Botulinum toxins efficacy on CNP is the result of a wide and complex action on many and diverse mechanisms at the basis of the maladaptive plasticity, the core of the pathogenesis of CNP. This systematic review aims to discuss in detail the BoNT's mechanisms and effects on peripheral and central neuroplasticity, at the basis for the clinical efficacy in CNP syndromes.

      Abstract: imageThe pressing need for safer, more efficacious analgesics is felt worldwide. Preclinical tests in animal models of painful conditions represent one of the earliest checkpoints novel therapeutics must negotiate before consideration for human use. Traditionally, the pain status of laboratory animals has been inferred from evoked nociceptive assays that measure their responses to noxious stimuli. The disconnect between how pain is tested in laboratory animals and how it is experienced by humans may in part explain the shortcomings of current pain medications and highlights a need for refinement. Here, we survey human patients with chronic pain who assert that everyday aspects of life, such as cleaning and leaving the house, are affected by their ongoing level of pain. Accordingly, we test the impact of painful conditions on an ethological behavior of mice, digging. Stable digging behavior was observed over time in naive mice of both sexes. By contrast, deficits in digging were seen after acute knee inflammation. The analgesia conferred by meloxicam and gabapentin was compared in the monosodium iodoacetate knee osteoarthritis model, with meloxicam more effectively ameliorating digging deficits, in line with human patients finding meloxicam more effective. Finally, in a visceral pain model, the decrease in digging behavior correlated with the extent of disease. Ultimately, we make a case for adopting ethological assays, such as digging, in studies of pain in laboratory animals, which we believe to be more representative of the human experience of pain and thus valuable in assessing clinical potential of novel analgesics in animals.

      Authors: Pavy; Fabien; Zaman, Jonas; Van den Noortgate, Wim; Scarpa, Aurelia; von Leupoldt, Andreas; Torta, Diana M.
      Abstract: imageDespite being widely assumed, the worsening impact of unpredictability on pain perception remains unclear because of conflicting empirical evidence, and a lack of systematic integration of past research findings. To fill this gap, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis focusing on the effect of unpredictability on pain perception. We also conducted meta-regression analyses to examine the moderating effect of several moderators associated with pain and unpredictability: stimulus duration, calibrated stimulus pain intensity, pain intensity expectation, controllability, anticipation delay, state and trait negative affectivity, sex/gender and age of the participants, type of unpredictability (intensity, onset, duration, location), and method of pain induction (thermal, electrical, mechanical pressure, mechanical distention). We included 73 experimental studies with adult volunteers manipulating the (un)predictability of painful stimuli and measuring perceived pain intensity and pain unpleasantness in predictable and unpredictable contexts. Because there are insufficient studies with patients, we focused on healthy volunteers. Our results did not reveal any effect of unpredictability on pain perception. However, several significant moderators were found, ie, targeted stimulus pain intensity, expected pain intensity, and state negative affectivity. Trait negative affectivity and uncontrollability showed no significant effect, presumably because of the low number of included studies. Thus, further investigation is necessary to clearly determine their role in unpredictable pain perception.

      Abstract: imageNeuropathic pain is a type of chronic pain that entails severe prolonged sensory dysfunctions caused by a lesion of the somatosensory system. Many of those suffering from the condition do not experience significant improvement with existing medications, resulting in various side effects. In this study, Sprague–Dawley male rats were used, and long-term deep brain stimulation of the ventrolateral periaqueductal gray was conducted in a rat model of spared nerve injury. We found that 5-Hz deep brain stimulation effectively modulated mechanical allodynia and induced neuronal activation in the rostral ventromedial medulla, restoring impaired descending serotonergic system. At the spinal level, glial cells were still activated but only the 5-HT1a receptor in the spinal cord was activated, implying its inhibitory role in mechanical allodynia. This study found that peripheral neuropathy caused dysfunction in the descending serotonergic system, and prolonged stimulation of ventrolateral periaqueductal gray can modulate the pathway in an efficient manner. This work would provide new opportunities for the development of targeted and effective treatments for this debilitating disease, possibly giving us lower chances of side effects from repeated high-frequency stimulation or long-term use of medication.

  • ATF4 inhibits TRPV4 function and controls itch perception in rodents and

      Abstract: imageAcute and chronic itch are prevalent and incapacitating, yet the neural mechanisms underlying both acute and chronic itch are just starting to be unraveled. Activated transcription factor 4 (ATF4) belongs to the ATF/CREB transcription factor family and primarily participates in the regulation of gene transcription. Our previous study has demonstrated that ATF4 is expressed in sensory neurons. Nevertheless, the role of ATF4 in itch sensation remains poorly understood. Here, we demonstrate that ATF4 plays a significant role in regulating itch sensation. The absence of ATF4 in dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons enhances the itch sensitivity of mice. Overexpression of ATF4 in sensory neurons significantly alleviates the acute and chronic pruritus in mice. Furthermore, ATF4 interacts with the transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily V member 4 (TRPV4) and inhibits its function without altering the expression or membrane trafficking of TRPV4 in sensory neurons. In addition, interference with ATF4 increases the itch sensitivity in nonhuman primates and enhances TRPV4 currents in nonhuman primates DRG neurons; ATF4 and TRPV4 also co-expresses in human sensory neurons. Our data demonstrate that ATF4 controls pruritus by regulating TRPV4 signaling through a nontranscriptional mechanism and identifies a potential new strategy for the treatment of pathological pruritus.

      Abstract: imageInterstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) is a debilitating urologic pain condition with few treatment advances in the past 25 years. Individuals with IC/BPS often experience significant psychological distress, which worsens symptoms and functioning. To date, there have been no large-scale, randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of comprehensive psychological interventions for IC/BPS. We conducted a 2:1 RCT of an 8-session patient-informed cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) intervention designed for IC/BPS for reducing pain-related symptoms and improving quality of life, delivered through telemedicine. Individuals with IC/BPS (N = 78) were randomized to receive either 8 weeks of CBT specifically designed for IC/BPS (n = 52) or an attention control condition (n = 26). Urologic symptoms (Genitourinary Pain Index, GUPI), pain-related symptoms, affective distress, and quality of life were evaluated before, immediately after, and 3 months posttreatment. Both conditions reported significant but similar reductions (P = 0.922) in the a priori primary outcome of genitourinary symptoms at posttreatment (GUPI reduction = 6.6 vs 4.8, for CBT and control, respectively) and long-term follow-up (8.1 vs 6.6, for CBT and control). However, the CBT group had significantly greater improvement in Patient Global Impression of Change (PGIC) scores and was significantly more likely to be treatment responders (PGIC ≥ 6) (37% vs 8%, P = 0.019 for CBT and control), with a large relative effect size (OR = 6.68). A subgroup analysis of CBT recipients showed that responders (PGIC 6) displayed significant reductions in genitourinary symptoms (P = 0.023), pain intensity (P = 0.027), and pain interference (P = 0.013) posttreatment. Telemedicine-delivered pain CBT for IC/BPS shows promise for improving outcomes, and this trial demonstrates the need for larger RCTs of CBT for IC/BPS.

      Authors: Wu; Pau Yen; Caceres, Ana Isabel; Chen, Jiegen; Sokoloff, Jamie; Huang, Mingjian; Baht, Gurpreet Singh; Nackley, Andrea G.; Jordt, Sven-Eric; Terrando, Niccolò
      Abstract: imagePostoperative pain is a major clinical problem imposing a significant burden on patients and society. In a survey 2 years after orthopedic surgery, 57% of patients reported persisting postoperative pain. However, only limited progress has been made in the development of safe and effective therapies to prevent the onset and chronification of pain after orthopedic surgery. We established a tibial fracture mouse model that recapitulates clinically relevant orthopedic trauma surgery, which causes changes in neuropeptide levels in dorsal root ganglia and sustained neuroinflammation in the spinal cord. Here, we monitored extended pain behavior in this model, observing chronic bilateral hindpaw mechanical allodynia in both male and female C57BL/6J mice that persisted for>3 months after surgery. We also tested the analgesic effects of a novel, minimally invasive, bioelectronic approach to percutaneously stimulate the vagus nerve (termed percutaneous vagus nerve stimulation [pVNS]). Weekly pVNS treatment for 30 minutes at 10 Hz for 3 weeks after the surgery strongly reduced pain behaviors compared with untreated controls. Percutaneous vagus nerve stimulation also improved locomotor coordination and accelerated bone healing. In the dorsal root ganglia, vagal stimulation inhibited the activation of glial fibrillary acidic protein-positive satellite cells but without affecting microglial activation. Overall, these data provide novel evidence supportive of the use of pVNS to prevent postoperative pain and inform translational studies to test antinociceptive effects of bioelectronic medicine in the clinic.

      Abstract: imageSubstantial interindividual variability characterizes osteoarthritis (OA) pain. Previous findings identify quantitative sensory testing (QST), psychological factors, and health-related quality of life as contributors to OA pain and predictors of treatment outcomes. This exploratory study aimed to explain baseline OA pain intensity and predict OA pain after administration of a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug in combination with paracetamol for 3 weeks. The Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) pain score was used to estimate OA pain presentation. One hundred one patients were assessed at baseline and follow-up using QST (pressure pain thresholds and temporal summation of pain [TSP]), symptoms of depression and anxiety, pain catastrophizing scales (PCSs), and health-related quality of life. Linear regression with backward selection identified that PCS significantly explained 34.2% of the variability in baseline KOOS pain, with nonsignificant contributions from TSP. Pain catastrophizing score and TSP predicted 29.3% of follow-up KOOS pain, with nonsignificant contributions from symptoms of anxiety. When assessed separately, PCS was the strongest predictor (32.2% of baseline and 24.1% of follow-up pain), but QST, symptoms of anxiety and depression, PCS, and quality of life also explained some variability in baseline and follow-up knee OA pain. Further analyses revealed that only TSP and PCS were not mediated by any other included variables, highlighting their role as unique contributors to OA pain presentation. This study emphasizes the importance of embracing a multimodal approach to OA pain and highlights PCS and TSP as major contributors to the baseline OA pain experience and the OA pain experience after OA treatment.

      Abstract: imageFacial grimacing is used to quantify spontaneous pain in mice and other mammals, but scoring relies on humans with different levels of proficiency. Here, we developed a cloud-based software platform called PainFace (http://painface.net) that uses machine learning to detect 4 facial action units of the mouse grimace scale (orbitals, nose, ears, whiskers) and score facial grimaces of black-coated C57BL/6 male and female mice on a 0 to 8 scale. Platform accuracy was validated in 2 different laboratories, with 3 conditions that evoke grimacing—laparotomy surgery, bilateral hindpaw injection of carrageenan, and intraplantar injection of formalin. PainFace can generate up to 1 grimace score per second from a standard 30 frames/s video, making it possible to quantify facial grimacing over time, and operates at a speed that scales with computing power. By analyzing the frequency distribution of grimace scores, we found that mice spent 7x more time in a “high grimace” state following laparotomy surgery relative to sham surgery controls. Our study shows that PainFace reproducibly quantifies facial grimaces indicative of nonevoked spontaneous pain and enables laboratories to standardize and scale-up facial grimace analyses.

      Abstract: imageOur aim was to investigate relative contributions of central and peripheral mechanisms to knee osteoarthritis (OA) diagnosis and their independent causal association with knee OA. We performed longitudinal analysis using data from UK-Biobank participants. Knee OA was defined using International Classification of Diseases manual 10 codes from participants' hospital records. Central mechanisms were proxied using multisite chronic pain (MCP) and peripheral mechanisms using body mass index (BMI). Odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were estimated, and proportional risk contribution (PRC) was estimated from receiver-operator-characteristic (ROC) analysis. To estimate the causal effects, we performed 2-sample multivariable Mendelian Randomisation (MR) analysis. We selected genetic instruments from the largest Genome Wide Association Study of BMI (N = 806,834) and MCP (N = 387,649) and estimated the instruments genetic associations with knee OA in the largest available dataset (62,497 cases and 333,557 control subjects). The multivariable MR was performed using modified inverse-variance weighting methods. Of the 203,410 participants, 6% developed knee OA. Both MCP (OR 1.23, 95% CI; 1.21-1.24) and BMI (1.10, 95% CI; 1.10-1.11) were associated with knee OA diagnosis. The PRC was 6.9% (95% CI; 6.7%-7.1%) for MCP and 21.9% (95% CI; 21.4%-22.5%) for BMI; the combined PRC was 38.8% (95% CI; 37.9%-39.8%). Body mass index and MCP had independent causal effects on knee OA (OR 1.76 [95% CI, 1.64-1.88] and 1.83 [95% CI, 1.54-2.16] per unit change, respectively). In conclusion, peripheral risk factors (eg, BMI) contribute more to the development of knee OA than central risk factors (eg, MCP). Peripheral and central factors are independently causal on knee OA.

  • Sex differences in facial expressions of pain: results from a combined
           sample

      Authors: Schneider; Pia; Lautenbacher, Stefan; Kunz, Miriam
      Abstract: imageFacial expressions of pain play an important role in pain diagnostics and social interactions. Given the prominent impact of sex on various aspects of pain, it is not surprising that sex differences have also been explored regarding facial expressions of pain; however, with inconclusive findings. We aim to further investigate sex differences in facial expressions of pain by using a large, combined sample to maximize statistical power. Data from 7 previous studies of our group were merged, combining in total the data of 392 participants (male: 192, female: 200). All participants received phasic heat pain, with intensities being tailored to the individual pain threshold. Pain intensity ratings were assessed, and facial responses were manually analyzed using the Facial Action Coding. To compare facial and subjective responses between sexes, linear mixed-effects models were used, with study ID as a random effect. We found significant sex differences in facial responses, with females showing elevated facial responses to pain, although they received lower physical heat intensities (women had lower pain thresholds). In contrast, pain intensity ratings did not differ between sexes. Additionally, facial and subjective responses to pain were significantly associated across sexes, with females showing slightly stronger associations. Although variations in facial expressions of pain are very large even within each sex, our findings demonstrate that women facially communicate pain more intensively and with a better match to their subjective experience compared with men. This indicates that women might be better in using facial communication of pain in an intensity-discriminative manner.

      Abstract: imageMusculoskeletal (MSK) pain is a common reason for consultation in general practice and frequently reported in children and adolescents. This study examined the prevalence of MSK pain in 13-year-old children and assessed associations with physical and psychosocial factors. Data from the Generation R Study, a population-based birth cohort, was used. Prevalence and characteristics of MSK pain were assessed, using a pain mannequin, at 13 years of age (N = 3062). Demographics and data on physical activity, sedentary behaviors, previous reported MSK pain, and behavioral problems were extracted from questionnaires. The body mass index (BMI) SD-score was calculated from objectively measured weight and height. A prevalence of 23.3% was found for MSK pain in children of which 87.2% persisted for more than 3 months (ie, chronic), 45.5% experienced pain daily. More physically active children and children with a higher BMI reported MSK pain more frequently compared with non-MSK pain and no pain. The knee was the most often reported location. Children with MSK pain were more likely to have reported MSK pain at 6 years. Multivariable analyses showed significant associations for male sex (OR 0.74, 95% CI 0.56-0.98), high maternal educational (OR 0.69, 95% CI 0.49-0.96), higher BMI (OR 1.19, 95% CI 1.05-1.35), being physically active (OR 1.41, 95% CI 1.03-1.91), and behavioral problems (OR 1.85, 95% CI 1.33-2.59) with the presence of MSK pain. The chronic nature of MSK pain in combination with the relatively high prevalence of MSK pain in this study shows that MSK pain is already an important problem at a young age.

      Abstract: imageParental involvement in neonatal comfort care is a core component of family-centred care. Yet, parents experience a range of positive and negative feelings when providing pain-relieving interventions for their infants. Parents of infants who participated in the Parental touch trial (Petal), a multicentre randomised controlled trial investigating the impact of gentle parental touch on neonatal pain, were asked to complete an anonymous survey. This survey aimed to (1) explore parent-reported motivations in deciding to participate in the Petal trial; (2) understand parent-reported experiences related to trial participation; (3) understand parents' willingness to participate in future studies; and (4) evaluate parent-reported feelings while they were delivering a gentle touch intervention either before or after a clinically necessary blood test. One hundred six parents (1 parent per infant) took part in the survey. Primary motivators for participation were altruistic. Parents most frequently reported that they wanted their child to take part in the research because it has a potential benefit to babies in the future and because they wanted to improve scientific understanding. Parents reported that providing gentle touch to their children during painful procedures was associated with positive emotions, such as feeling “useful” (64%) and “reassured” (53%). Furthermore, nearly all parents (98%) were pleased to have participated in the Petal trial and would consider, or maybe consider, participating in further research studies. These results underscore the importance of structuring trials around parental involvement and providing opportunities for parents to be involved in providing comfort to their infants during necessary painful clinical procedures.

      Authors: Doménech-García; Víctor; Skovlund, Sebastian Venge; Bellosta-López, Pablo; Calatayud, Joaquín; López-Bueno, Rubén; Andersen, Lars Louis
      Abstract: imageAlthough multisite pain can markedly reduce work ability, the relevance of the bodily pain distribution as a predictor of long-term sick leave is still unknown. This study aimed to investigate the association between musculoskeletal pain distributions and long-term sick leave in the general working population of Denmark and included 66,177 currently employed wage earners without long-term sick leave during the prior 52 weeks. Participants reported whether they had pain in the lower extremity (hips/knees), upper extremity (neck/shoulders), or the low back. The analysis controlled for age, sex, year of survey reply, educational level, occupational group, psychosocial work factors, body max index, smoking, leisure-time physical activity, and mental health confounders. The results demonstrated that the risk of long-term sick leave increased with the number of pain sites. Compared with no pain, localized pain in any body region increased the risk/hazard by 25% to 29% (HR [95% CI]: 1.29 [1.07-1.54] for pain only in the low back), whereas pain in 2 regions increased the risk by 39% to 44% (HR [95% CI]: 1.41 [1.18-1.69] for pain in the low back + hips/knees). Workers reporting pain in all 3 regions experienced a 72% increased risk (HR [95% CI]: 1.72 [1.55-1.91]). Thus, the number of pain regions seems to matter more than the exact pain location. The spatial extension of musculoskeletal pain in workers functions as a gradient system, where pain spread throughout the body is an independent indicator of the high risk of long-term sick leave.
