Patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA) complain of various types of pain, divided into two main categories: pain on movement and pain at rest. A thorough understanding of pain is essential for managing knee OA; however, few studies have investigated the mechanisms underlying the two different types of pain. This study aimed to clarify the predisposing factors for pain in patients with knee OA with a focus on differences between pain on walking and pain at rest.
