The thesis set out to investigate persistent pain from a psychobiological perspective. Specifically it outlines a model of persistent pain that focuses on the shared underlying psychobiology of persistent pain and traumatic stress. This model was then used to inform the development of an exercise intervention. A pilot, randomized controlled trial (#MindinBody RCT) was undertaken to assess the efficacy and feasibility of this exercise intervention for improving persistent pain levels in women with a history of trauma.
