Activity-related pain and sensitization predict within- and between-person pain experience in people with knee osteoarthritis: An ecological momentary assessment study.


Overton M, Swain N, Falling C, Gwynne-Jones D, Fillingim R, Mani R


Knee Osteoarthritis (OA) is a prevalent musculoskeletal condition that often results in pain and disability. Determining factors predicting variability in pain experience is critical to improving clinical outcomes. Underlying pain sensitization and its clinical manifestations, such as activity-related pain, may better predict the knee OA pain experience. This study aimed to determine whether Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST) derived sensitization measures and activity-related pain predict knee OA pain experiences collected via smartphone ecological momentary assessment (EMA).
