Abstract Resume

BBackground: Classification of pain according to the underlying neurophysiological mechanisms responsible for their generation and maintenance has brought important information for
clinical decision-making. Despite the growing number of studies on pain classification, knowledge of different populations is still not consistent. Concerning athletes and sports characterization of
the signs and symptoms that most have still lacks a clearer delineation. Methods: Delphi questionnaire containing subjective questions about nociceptive pain, neuropathic central and
peripheral was applied to 120 athletes of modalities soccer, beach volleyball, indoor volleyball, rhythmic gymnastics, swimming and basketball. Data were collected as sex, race, family income,
practice time, weight, height, age, how many people live, level of education. number of workouts per week. It used a chi-square test for variables association and likelihood test, for both tests, a
significance of p <0.05. Results: The variables gender (p = 0.014) and nocturnal pain (0.016) was positively associated with pain rating for the chi-square test. For joint pain men
showed percentage of 81.12% for Neuropathic Pain women had percentage of 66.67% for the nociceptive men showed percentage of 64.58%, and 60% of central neuropathic pain. As for the variable night pain
men had pain 66.67% of neuropathic pain, 85.71% of subjects without pain were men. The prevalence data show that 40% of injuries are nociceptive. Soccer had important values of mixed lesions 54.63%.
Conclusion: Our data point to soccer as the sport with the greatest part of mixed lesions which may be the result of the high level of contact that occurs in practice mode. Gender was
also a determining factor for pain classification, which may be related to hormonal differences and sensitivity to pain between genders. New clinical studies with methodologies would be important for
understanding of our results
