Abstract

Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) is a painful chronic disorder. Evidence has shown that a history of chronic pain plays an important role in shaping empathy. Empathy, a valuable indicator of social functioning that refers to an individual's ability to share the experiences of others, however, has been overlooked in KOA patients. This study aimed to investigate empathy and its association with clinical pain in KOA patients.
