SILVA, Elisa Martins da; RABELO, Ivan  e  RUBIO, Katia. The pain among high level athletes. Rev. bras. psicol. esporte [online]. 2010, vol.3, n.1, pp. 79-97. ISSN 1981-9145.

The pain among high level athletesPain is defined as a "sensitive and emotional displeasing experience, associated with real or potential tissue damage". In this way, one perceives that the association established between injury- painful sensation involves biological factors and an important subjective component. This work has as objective to evaluate how the athletes cope, face and control pain episodes, their capacity to discriminate the different types of pain, as well as their sensitivity to answer to signs and limits, essential conditions in the pursuit of optimum results for the team and the athlete. Therefore, we used the Sports Inventory for Pain and reports about the stories of pain of 32 participant athletes participating in the 2009 Brazilian Open Games. The data point that the representations of pain vary depending on the age and gender, what strengthens the subjective component in inherent to this perception, demanding more attention of those professionals who will deal with patients in these conditions.
