Association Between Exercise and Centrally-Mediated Pain Perception
We are studying the association between fitness levels and the perception of musculoskeletal pain.
We are inviting healthy, sedentary (don’t regularly exercise or exercise less than 100 minutes a week) and physically active (exercising 4+/wk or more than 150 minutes of moderate-vigorous activity per wk) adults between the ages of 18 and 45 to participate in a study involving temporary cold- and pressure-sensations on the arm and hand.
The study involves temporary cold- and pressure-sensations on the arm and hand. Visits also includes questionnaires, wearing an activity monitor for 1 week, and a 3-minute submaximal fitness assessment.
The study will consist of two visits approximately 1 week apart:
1st visit is approximately 30 minutes & 2nd visit is approximately 45 minutes.
