3Treatment groups
Experimental Treatment
Active Control
Group I: Pain Inducing StretchExperimental Treatment1 Intervention
Participants will be seated in a chair and asked to complete an upper trapezius stretch. They will feel a gentle stretch in the area between the top of their shoulder and the base of their neck. Participants will be asked to stretch until the point of pain. They will hold this stretch for 1 minute, 4 times. Change in Pressure Pain Threshold will be examined on the web space of their foot between each one minute interval of the stretch. Participants will be notified that they may stop the stretch at any point if needed.
Group II: Pain Free StretchActive Control1 Intervention
Participants will be seated in a chair and asked to complete an upper trapezius stretch. They will feel a gentle stretch in the area between the top of their shoulder and the base of their neck. Participants will be asked to stretch in a pain free range. They will hold this stretch for 1 minute, 4 times. Change in Pressure Pain Threshold will be examined on the web space of their foot between each one minute interval of the stretch. Participants will be notified that they may stop the stretch at any point if needed.
Group III: Cold Water ImmersionActive Control1 Intervention
Participants will complete a cold water immersion task to the hand for one minute, four times. Change in Pressure Pain Threshold will be measured between each one-minute interval on the web space of the foot between the first and second toes.
