Associations between pressure-pain threshold, symptoms, and radiographic knee and hip osteoarthritis.
The researchers sought to determine the association between generalized evoked pressure pain sensitivity with distal pressure–pain threshold and the presence, severity, or number of involved knee/hip joints with radiographic osteoarthritis or related symptoms. They found that as a participant’s sensitivity for pressure pain decreased, there were several significant associations with presence, severity, and number of joints with symptoms, regardless of the knee or hip joint.
