Abstract

This study had as main objective to investigate the relationship between pain mechanisms through the study of the response of the descending modulatory system performed with the Conditioned Pain Modulation (CPM) paradigm and its relationship with cognitive performance in 17 patients with spinal disorders (spondioarthritis) which is a group of inflammatory rheumatic diseases that cause pain compromising the quality of life of individuals. A sample of these patients with high activity and functional repercussions was evaluated who presented cognitive deficits and marked disturbance of sleep quality, as well as the descending pain pathways (inhibitory pathways producing analgesia in the brain, compromised). These individuals presented with severe physical and psychological problems and compromised mental health in some cases.
