Why is it important?

The relationship between pain intensity and knee joint position sense is very important for patients with OA in the improvement of rehabilitation programs16). Given these findings, only few studies have considered pain severity during rehabilitation programs for patients with knee OA.


Pain intensity is one of the prominent factors that are responsible for the improvement of knee osteoarthritis. Consequently, pain intensity should be considered during rehabilitation of knee osteoarthritis.
