  • a R2, β, 95% confidence interval (CI; of nonstandardized coefficient), and P values were obtained from final regression models. Age and pain duration were entered as continuous variables: sex was coded as follows—1=male, 2=female; work-related pain was coded as follows—1=painful symptoms work related, 2=painful symptoms not work related; and surgery for pain was coded as follows—1=surgery for primary complaint, 2=no surgery for primary complaint. The AR was entered as 4 categorical variables: low back AR (reference category), neck AR, shoulder AR, and knee AR. The mSBT psychosocial subscore was entered as a continuous variable (0–5). The AR × mSBT psychosocial subscore interaction terms were centered and entered as 4 categorical interactions (low back AR × mSBT psychosocial subscore was used as the reference category).
