Characteristics of chronic non-specific musculoskeletal pain [CNSMSP] in children and adolescents attending a rheumatology outpatients clinic: a cross-sectional study PDF

“In the psychosocial domain CNSMSP subjects had increased levels of anxiety and depression, and had more somatic pain complaints. In the lifestyle domain CNSMSP subjects had lower physical activity levels, but no difference in television or computer use compared to pain free subjects. Physically, CNSMSP subjects tended to sit with a more slumped spinal posture, had reduced back muscle endurance, increased presence of joint hypermobility and poorer gross motor skills.”

“Conclusion: These findings support the notion that CNSMSP is a multidimensional biopsychosocial disorder.”

I hope the subjects were tested for EDS.

What does that mean?
