Patellofemoral pain (PFP) is defined biomechanically, but is characterised by features that fit poorly within nociceptive pain. Mechanisms associated with central sensitisation may explain why, for some, symptoms appear nociplastic. This study compares psychological and somatosensory characteristics between those with persistent PFP and controls.
