    Abstract

    Background and Purpose: Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is associated with reduced muscle strength and pain sensitization. The purpose of this study was to determine intrarater reliability and agreement (measurement error) of isometric knee extensor and flexor muscle strength assessed using handheld dynamometry and of pressure pain thresholds (PPT; a measure of pain sensitization) from the knee, the leg, and the forearm assessed using handheld algometry in knee OA.
