Experimental knee joint pain during strength training and muscle strength gain in healthy subjects: a randomized controlled trial

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Knee joint pain and reduced quadriceps strength are cardinal symptoms in many knee pathologies. In people with painful knee pathologies, quadriceps exercise reduces pain, improves physical function, and increases muscle strength. A general assumption is that pain compromises muscle function and thus may prevent effective rehabilitation. This study evaluated the effects of experimental knee joint pain during quadriceps strength training on muscle strength gain in healthy individuals.
