Liu).Aims: The purpose of this study was to investigate potential gender differences in pain referral patterns induced by a tonic painfulmechanical stimulus.Methods: Forty-five healthy adults (22 women) participated inthis study. Pressure pain thresholds (PPTs) were assessed at theinfraspinatus, the brachioradialis and the gastrocnemius muscleson the dominant side, using handheld algometry. Following this,painful pressure at the infraspinatus muscle was induced usingthe algometer by rapidly increasing the pressure until it reachedthe level of 7 cm on VAS (PVAS7). This pressure was kept constantfor 60 s. Upon release, the subject was asked to indicate the areaof the pressure-induced pain on a digital body chart. PPT values,PVAS7 and the pain area (number of pixels) were extracted for dataanalysis.Results: No gender differences were found in PPT values(P > 0.05). The pressure needed to reach 7 cm on the VAS was significantly lower in the female group (687.4 ± 50.5 kPa) compared withmales (971.0 ± 49.6 kPa; unpaired t-test: P < 0.05). The size of thepain area following PVAS7 stimulation for 60 s was significantlylarger in the female group (12,578.5 ± 17,280.3 pixels) comparedwith the male group (6175.0 ± 9518.5 pixels; Mann–Whitney-U;P < 0.05).Conclusions: Despite comparable PPT values, women demonstrated larger pain areas compared with men although thestandardized painful stimulus which intensity was perceived similarly as 7 cm on the VAS scale in both groups.
