Moreover, a longitudinal perspective is essential. A cross-sectional approach will only permit consideration of these factors at a specific point in time, and chronic conditions continually evolve.

In acute pain states it may be useful to reduce movement, and consequently to avoid pain in order to accelerate the healing process. Over time, however, anticipatory anxiety related to activity may develop and act as a conditioned stimulus for sympathetic activation (the conditioned response), which may be maintained after the original unconditioned stimulus (injury) and unconditioned response (pain and sympathetic activation) have subsided [59, 61].
