Özet

Introduction: In previous studies of pain sensitivity in the elderly, reliance on experimental assessments of the pain threshold has led to inconsistent results; thus, the impact of ageing on pain sensitivity is still uncertain. In this study, we investigate the changes in experimental and clinical pain sensitivity in an elderly population.
