Clinical Trial Summary

The main goal of this study is to get to know if applying both, pain neuroscience education (PNE) plus strength training (ST) will reduce the pain of fibromyalgia (FM). Both therapies have shown evidence of improvement in fibromyalgia patients. However, there are no studies evaluating their efficacy in combination.


Clinical Trial Description

At present, the increase in knowledge about the neuroscience of pain has led to the integration of psychological factors, such as cognitions and beliefs about pain, fear-avoidance behaviors or catastrophism within the integrative perception of the concept . This has led to the development of therapeutic strategies aimed at the reconceptualization of pain through a treatment method called Pain Neuroscience Education (PNE), having shown evidence in the treatment of pain, disability, catastrophism and physical performance. But despite current advances in pain neuroscience, there are still pain syndromes, such as fibromyalgia, that are the subject of debate and controversy. Fibromyalgia is a syndrome that causes generalized musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, sleep disorders, and physical disability. It is the main cause of chronic generalized musculoskeletal pain, with a prevalence of 1-5% of the world population. Scientific research has provided new insight for the diagnosis of fibromyalgia patients, who are characterized by a central sensitization process. Objectives: To assess the effectiveness of Pain Neuroscience Education and Strength Training to decrease pain and disability; and increasing quality of life and functionality in patients with Fibromyalgia. ;
