Prior studies suggest central sensitization plays an important role in the pathophysiology of fibromyalgia. Dry needling trigger point treatment, while painful, has been demonstrated as useful in fibromyalgia patients for decreasing pain and central sensitization. However, the current biopsicosocial pain paradigm indicates that fibromyalgia subjects with high levels of catastrophism have negative thoughts related to potentially painful episodes, which results in a major amount of pain perceived and efficacy of the treatment. Therefore, the objective of our study was to assess whether catastrophizing could influence the perception of pain during, after and 24 hours after dry needling application
