CASTELLANO-TEJEDOR, C.; BARNOLA-SERRA, E.  and  MARTINEZ-RAIBAL, I.. Training program in cardiac coherence for stress reduction in healthcare personnel with chronic neck pain: a pilot study. Rev. Soc. Esp. Dolor [online]. 2015, vol.22, n.6, pp.249-252. ISSN 1134-8046.

This case report aims to disseminate the results of a pilot study exploring the potentialities of training program in cardiac coherence (CC) for reducing stress in nurses with chronic neck pain. For this purpose, 8 nurses participated in a training program in CC and were evaluated pre/post on the following factors: pain (VAS), emotional intelligence (TMMS-24), anxious-depressive symptoms (Hamilton & Goldberg scales) and job-related stress (NSS). After the training, a significant decrease in pain scores and associated symptoms (spasms, pain due to mobility and paresthesias) as well as depressive symptoms was observed. Also, higher scores were observed in emotional intelligence (perception scale).

Keywords : Pilot study; Cardiac coherence; Nursing; Stress; Musculoskeletal pain.
