Table 1 Pairwise comparisons of absolute and normalized pressure pain thresholds (PPT) from the cervico-thoracic region.

From: Pressure pain sensitivity maps of the neck-shoulder and the low back regions in men and women

Subdivision Absolute PPT (kPa) Normalized PPT
Upper trapezius 295.2 ± 95.9 *,†,‡ [99 - 981] 0.88 ± 0.20 *,†,‡ [0.30 - 2.08]

  1. The results of the pairwise comparisons of the PPT values (mean ± SD and [range]). Symbols mark significant difference (P < 0.05) between respective pair of absolute values (*: upper and middle trapezius, †: upper and lower trapezius, ‡: upper trapezius and spinal processes, •: middle and lower trapezius) and normalized values (*: upper and middle trapezius, †: upper and lower trapezius, ‡: upper trapezius and spinal processes, •: middle and lower trapezius, Δ: lower trapezius and spinal processes).
