Abstract

Nineteen chronic low back pain patients (aged 19-63) and 17 controls (aged 20-41) received electrical pain stimuli during manipulation of their carotid baroreceptors. The non-invasive mechanical manipulation of baroreceptors, using the PRES technique (Phase Related External Suction), simulates the end-effects of phasic blood pressure changes. Thistechnique was developed to assess pain responses induced by changes in blood pressure without the typical shortcomings of pharmacological manipulation or lack of a control condition. During maximum baroreceptor activity, there was an unexpected increase in the amplitude of the somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) elicited by the electrical pain stimuli condition (N150-P260 peak-to-peak). In most other studies the opposite effect was found, with decreased pain responses during maximum baroreceptor activity. The chronic pain group reported greater pain during highest baroreceptor activation than did the controls. In addition, the chronic pain group showed lower diastolic blood pressure. To determine whether pain and baroreceptor responses observed in the chronic pain group depended on lower blood pressure levels, a second experiment with a non-clinical sample was performed. Results showed that lower tonic blood pressures are associated with greater baroreceptor activity amplifying pain, while higher blood pressure is associated with pain dampening during high baroreceptor activity. Data suggested that the differences in pain responses found in low back pain patients wereassociated with their lower tonic blood pressure levels. It is proposed that in general, lower blood pressures may be associated with greater pain during baroreceptor activation. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science B.V.
