Comparing the impact of different levels of pain neuroscience education in people with fibromyalgia


  • Different dosages of pain neuroscience education (PNE) and biomedical education had similar effects on central nociceptive processing, disability, and psychological variables in people with fibromyalgia (FM), although higher PNE dosage had a greater benefit on pain intensity.

Why this matters

  • Educating people with FM improves outcomes for patients and compared to biomedical education, higher levels of PNE may prove more effective in the long term particularly on pain intensity.
