Chronic musculoskeletal pain (CMP) is highly prevalent, disabling and with high socio-economic costs, with many negative effects on quality of life. CMP affects the ability to perform work, social, recreational and domestic tasks by changing the mood and concentration of this population that suffers.
In a study carried out in 2010, 17% of the Spanish population had experienced pain in the last month and according to the severity of symptoms 12% felt severe , 64% moderate and 24% mild pain. In this same study it is specified that 61% was due to back pain, 29% due to neck pain and 23% due to shoulder pain.
Pain neuroscience education (PNE) has been shown as an effective treatment strategy in increasing knowledge and understanding of neurobiology, neurophysiology and pain processing, modifying beliefs about it, improving patient skills and encouraging to the accomplishment of physical and social activities in different chronic pathologies.

Pain neuroscience education (PNE) can be defined as an educational session or sessions describing the neurobiology and neurophysiology of pain, and pain processing by the nervous system. It will be applied one time (at baseline). Physiotherapy includes kinesitherapy and exercises.
Physiotherapy cover kinesitherapy and exercises techniques. Besides that it will be covered the understanding and acknowledgement about how pain is processed.
Active Comparator: Physiotherapy
Physiotherapy includes kinesitherapy and exercises.
Physiotherapy cover kinesitherapy and exercises techniques.
- Change from Baseline pain and function pain associated at 1 and 4 months [ Time Frame: 1 and 4 months ]This outcome will be measured with the Graded Chronic Pain Scale
- Central pain sensitization at baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline ]This outcome will be measured with Algometer
- Change from Baseline self-efficacy at 1 and 4 months [ Time Frame: 1 and 4 months ]This outcome will be measured with the Chronic Pain Self-Efficacy Scale
- Patient Satisfaction at 1 month [ Time Frame: 1 month ]This outcome will be measured with the Instrument for Measuring Patient Satisfaction
