  1. SF-MPQ-2 Revised Short McGill Pain Questionnaire Version-2, CI confidence interval, SEM standard error measurement, MDC minimal detectable change
  2. SEM (%) and MDC (%) is expressed as the proportion of the obtained SEMagreement or MDC90individual of domain represented on the SF-MPQ-2 to the total score of the scale (i.e. 10 points)
