|Official Title:||Effectiveness of a Cognitive and Physical Intervention to Reduce Head and Muscle Pain in a Population of an Extensive Territory|
- Reduction in number of days per month with headache and shoulders pain after 12 months. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
- Reduction in number of days per month of drug intake after 12 months [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
|Study Start Date:||June 2009|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||November 2011|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||June 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Cognitive and physical program
Experimental: Cognitive and physical program. Non randomized residents in the territory of Piedmont (Piemonte) Italy.
Behavioral: Behavioral: Cognitive, Relaxation, Exercise Therapy
Behavioral: Cognitive, Relaxation, Exercise Therapy The intervention consists of brief shoulder and neck exercises to be performed several times a day, a relaxation exercise and instructions of how to reduce hyperfunction of the craniofacial and cervical muscles during the day
In a previous non-randomized-controlled study in which the cognitive and physical programme was applied to a consistent number of office workers, a significant reduction of frequency of pain in the head and neck areas and of analgesic drug consumption was obtained. The results were stable at a 12 month follow up. More recently a controlled, cluster randomised, interventional trial was conducted on 1930 local government employees of the Municipality of Turin. The data obtained confirm those of the previous studies.
The present study was designed to confirm the data in a much more extensive population , that is, residents of the Italian Region Piemonte (Piedmont) who will apply to participate.
Primary objective is to confirm the effectiveness of the cognitive and physical programme (Intervention), in reducing the frequency of pain involving the head and neck area in a large population of a territory.
Secondary objective is to confirm the effectiveness of the Intervention, in reducing analgesic drugs consumption after the Intervention in the same population.
