Abstract

Competing in various athletic events (track meet, basketball game, or fencing match) can produce analgesia to cold presser stimuli in male and femalecollege athletes compared with baseline assessments. This competition-induced analgesia has been attributed to the stress associated with competition, which has components related to both physical exercise and the cognitive aspects of competing. This study evaluated the analgesic effect of exercise-related stress, and that caused by the cognitively stressful components ofcompeting independent of exercise. Cold presser pain ratings were assessedafter competition in a track meet and after treadmill exercise or sedentary video game competition in both athletes and nonathletes. As expected, competing in athletics resulted in a decrease in cold presser ratings in both male and female athletes. Independent of athletic status, treadmill runninginduced analgesia in women, but not in males, whereas sedentary video gamecompetition produced analgesia in men, but not in women. These findings suggest that different components of the competitive athletic experience might be responsible for the analgesic effects in a sex-dependent manner.
