Quantitative sensory tests and prediction of early onset chronic pain - project description

Published Updated

This study will explore whether QST measures of pain sensitivity among 15-16 year olds are predictive of new-onset pain assessed two years later.


Summary

Pediatric pain is an important public health issue, affecting 11–44% of the pediatric population. Children with pain may experience poorer psychosocial functioning, decreased levels of physical activity, higher rates of sleep disturbances, and higher levels of school absenteeism. Ultimately, this may result in poorer quality of life, long term disability, and financial impact. Identification of risk factors for the development of chronic pain has drawn from biopsychosocial models of pain. The use of psychophysical pain procedures such as Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST) provides physical correlates by incorporating sensory nervous system assessment. To date, very limited research on QST is available in pediatric populations. Thus the aim of this study is to explore whether QST measures of pain sensitivity among 15-16 year olds are predictive of new-onset pain assessed two years later.
