A major limitation in treatment outcomes for chronic pain is the heterogeneity of the population. Therefore, a personalized approach to the assessment and treatment of children and adolescents with chronic pain conditions is needed. The objective of the study was to subgroup pediatric patients with chronic MSK pain that will be phenotypically different from each other based on their psychosocial profile, somatosensory function, and pain modulation.
