Poster presentation at the British Pain society’s ASM

Published: 21 June 2011

Dr Sally Curtis presented a poster of her research findings at the Joint Annual Scientific Meeting of the British Pain Society & The Canadian Pain Society in Edinburgh (Tuesday 21st – Friday 24th June 2011)

The content of her poster resulted from her PhD on the activation of superficial cervical muscle activation in chronic neck pain. The poster focussed on correlations between pain and fatigue ratings and muscle activity during a sustained fatiguing task in individuals with chronic neck pain. The main findings were that subjective pain and fatigue ratings appear to correlate with upper trapezii activity and that this relationship is less pronounced in individuals with chronic neck pain of a traumatic onset than those with a non-traumatic onset.
