La investigación sobre la analgesia con placebo es relevante para la práctica clínica

Research on placebo analgesia is relevant to clinical practice
Chiropractic & Manual Therapies
Over the decades, research into placebo responses has shed light on several endogenous mechanisms underlying modulation of pain perception initiated after the administration of inert substances. This commentary encourages manual therapists to embrace analgesic-placebo research to maximize clinical benefit. Historical views that placebo responses are fake, passive, and undesirable are outdated. And the contention that the placebo response is a single mechanism are overly simplistic. This commentary discusses research that shows that several active biological processes underlie the modulation of pain perception involved in placebo analgesia and its counterpart, nocebo hyperalgesia
