Abstract
Purpose Body image may be distorted in chronic back pain patients (Moseley 2008). We thus asked pain patients to complete (by drawing) pre-defined, printed body schematics, which were lacking the outlines of the particular body parts affected (neck and back). This way the patients were free to complete the outlines according to their subjective perception of their body. The primary aim of this study was to evaluate these drawings as an outcome tool for pain related CAM interventions.
