Procedure: This educational intervention is based in the latest evidence of pain neuroscience education, used in multiple rehabilitation programs. Its aim is to change the subject's pain understanding, teaching them the biological processes underneath the pain construct, as a mechanism to reduce itself and its related maladaptive thoughts and behaviors.
The PNE will be delivered by a physiotherapist in a single, group-based session.
- Knowledge of Pain Neuroscience. Changes from baseline to immediately after PNE. [ Time Frame: baseline, pre-PNE, immediately after PNE ]Participants will be asked to complete the Neurophysiology of Pain Questionnaire (NPQ) (Spanish version)
- Pain Attitudes. [ Time Frame: baseline, pre-PNE, immediately after PNE ]Participants will be asked to complete the Survey of Pain Attitudes Brief Version (SOPA-B) (Spanish version).
- Pain Catastrophism. [ Time Frame: baseline, pre-PNE, immediately after PNE ]Participants will be asked to complete the Pain Catastrophizing Scale (PCS) (Spanish version).
- Pain-related Fear of Movement. [ Time Frame: baseline, pre-PNE, immediately after PNE ]Participants will be asked to complete the Tampa Scale of Kinesiophobia (TSK-11) (Spanish version).
