Pain sensitization in knee osteoarthritis is associated with greater symptom severity and poorer clinical outcomes. Measures which identify pain sensitization and are accessible to use in clinical practice have been suggested to enable more targeted treatments. This merits further investigation. This study examines the relationship between Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST) and clinical measures of pain sensitization in people with knee osteoarthritis.
