dc.description.abstractHealth complaint severity at individual level varied greatly over time, and a single-sample approach did not provide data representive of complaint severity over one year. Considering these findings, we used the mean of four or more consecutive months to investigate relations between health complaint severity and physiological responses to standardized laboratory tasks. Musculoskeletal complaints, but not psychological complaints, predicted reduced electromyografic (EMG) activity in the trapezius muscle during submaximal muscle contractions. In contrast, psychological complaints, but not musculoskeletal complaints, predicted differences in the responses between task-engaged and non-involved muscles during standardized cognitive and motor tasks. The muscle responses during the tasks did not predict changes in complaint severity in the subsequent 12 months. No statistically significant relations were found between complaint severity and muscle activity at rest or during pauses from work tasks. We observed large variations at the individual level in physiological responses to standardized tasks over three measurement years. Such large variations represent a challenge when using the measurements to interpret the effects of therapies.
