Pain is the most prevalent symptom in knee osteoarthritis (KOA). Previous studies confirmed that increased pain in KOA, i.e. hyperalgesia, can be attributed to peripheral and central sensitization. In time, pain sensitization may also contribute to the emergence of e.g. diverse sensations and structural changes in joint innervation in KOA. For assessing pain sensitization in KOA, pressure pain threshold (PPT) measurement is the most relevant method. Previous studies confirmed the enhanced pain sensitivity in KOA compared to healthy controls.
Manual therapy is a preferred intervention for decrease of symptoms in KOA based on international guidelines. Interestingly, the effect of Maitland® mobilization on pain sensitization has been rarely investigated in KOA. The speaker, Dr. Miklós Pozsgai, Hungarian Maitland® trained therapist completed his PhD degree in 2022. The main topic of his PhD work was investigating the effect of Maitland® mobilization on both pain sensitization and physical function in KOA. During the webinar, he will refer to the following topics: shortly review the sensitization processes and their consequences, present the clinical features of pain sensitization in KOA, introduce the pressure pain threshold measurement amongst several diverse sensitization measurement methods, highlight possible reasons single end-range Maitland® mobilization being more effective compared to not end-range Maitland® mobilization and sham manual therapy in KOA and make suggestions for the optimal treatment frequency of end-range Maitland® mobilization in the management of KOA.

About the presenter:
