A warning sign
Time-limited, diminishes as healing occurs
Cause usually known, identifiable

Theories of Pain
Pain is basic to human experience
Provider’s theories about pain are primarily based upon the provider’s experience
The challenge for pain theory is to account for wide variety of human pain experiences

Limitations
Many people continue to experience pain well after an injury has healed.
People with identical injuries report vastly different levels of pain.
Subjects in experimental pain studies report vastly different levels of pain to the same stimulus.

Specificity Theory 
Negative consequences
Providers question patient’s report of pain when they cannot see evidence of damage
Patients assume that the presence of pain indicates that something is very wrong (which increases pain perception)

Gate Control Theory
Pain perception is a function of sensory input from the body (ascending pathways) and perceptions from the brain (descending pathways).
The “gate” is located within the spinal cord (dorsal horn) and involves input from body and brain operating simultaneously- the gate opens or closes.
Factors that open the gate increase pain, factors that close the gate decrease pain- as with a volume knob.

Gate Control Theory
Factors that Open the Gate 
Negative Emotions 
Depression, anxiety, stress
Negative Thoughts 
“I can’t take this pain anymore”
Focusing Attention on Pain
Absence of pleasant activities, unemployment

Gate Control Theory
Factors that close the gate
Positive emotions 
States of Relaxation 
Guided imagery, Meditation, 
Yoga, etc.
Attention directed away from pain
Recreational activities, positive distraction, etc

Catastrophizing
Catastrophic thoughts involve thinking the worst about pain or its implications
“this will go on forever,” “my pain will never stop,” or “nothing can be done to improve my pain.”
Extremely prevalent and problematic, BUT appears to decrease in response to CBT-CP.

Avoidance
Avoidance of activities and people is a hallmark symptom of CP
“Disuse syndrome”
Avoidance of social or recreational activities can lead to isolation and depression

Solicitous Loved One
Individuals highly responsive to a patient’s pain/pain behaviors actually increase a patient’s level of pain  (compared to spouses/partners who suggest helpful but distracting ways to cope with pain)
If demonstrations of increased pain garner additional attention/assistance, there may also be secondary gains

Social Constraints
If “solicitousness” is at one end of a social dimension then “constraint” is at the other
Social Constraint involves preventing expression about health problems such as pain
This can happen from significant others or from providers
