The relationship between joint pain and hyperalgesia has been explored in animal models of articular inflammation, but is yet to be shown in the most common rheumatologic condition: osteoarthritis. In this study, cutaneous thermal and mechanical pain thresholds were measured over the thumb of patients with osteoarthritis of the hands. In symptomatic patients, pain was manipulated through resisted active movement of the thumb. Provocation of movement pain (MP) was associated with a sustained… CONTINUE READING
