Experimental: Pain neuroscience education + Exercise
Pain neuroscience education 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 three times (at baseline, one week and one month after intervention). Exercise will be based on a set of 4 exercise implicating flexion, extension, lateral rotation and abduction of lower and upper extremities.
Other: Pain neuroscience education + Exercise
A session of Pain neuroscience education + Exercise covers the activity, strength and endurance of lower and upper muscles of the extremities. Besides that it will be covered the understanding and acknowledgement about how pain is processed.
Active Comparator: Exercise
Exercise will be based on a set of 4 exercise implicating flexion, extension, lateral rotation and abduction of lower and upper extremities. Participants will attend three appointments per week over three weeks. They will complete three sets of 10 repetitions, with the exercises progressed in difficulty at each appointment.
A session of exercise covers the activity, strength and endurance of lower and upper muscles of the extremities.
- Change from Baseline function at 1 month [ Time Frame: 1 month ]This outcome will be measured with the pain disability index (PDI)
- Change from Baseline pain at 1 month [ Time Frame: 1 month ]This outcome will be measured with the numerical pain rating scale (NRS)
- Change from Baseline self-efficacy at 1 moths [ Time Frame: 1 month ]Pain Self-Efficacy Questionnaire (PSEQ) contains 10 questions that will be measure the patient's confidence in performing certain activities despite pain.
