The aim was to examine effects of mindfulness training on generalized hyperalgesia in chronic tension-type headache (CTH) sufferers. Method: Forty-three CTH sufferers participated in a randomized wait-list controlled trial of a mindfulness intervention for headache. Pressure and thermal (cold) pain detection thresholds, cold pain rating and tolerance, pericranial muscle tenderness, and conditioned pain modulation were assessed before and after intervention. Pain sensitivity was also measured in a sample of 56 healthy headache-free subjects and compared with the headache group.
