Abstract:
Joint mobility is dependent on comfort, thus pain is associated with mobility. This study examined the relationship between pain perception and joint mobility in arthritis patients before and after total knee arthroplasty. Pain perception was indicated by pain intensity, pain distress and pain expectation; joint mobility was represented by the degree of knee joint flexion. Visual analogue scales were used for pain intensity, pain distress and pain expectation; knee joint flexion as measured using a goniometer. Data were collected on 24 subjects preoperatively (T1), immediately postoperatively (T2) and forty-eight to seventy-two hours postoperatively (T3). Twenty-four subjects participated in the study. Significant paired t-test resulted for joint flexion at T1 and T3 and pain expectation at T2 and T3. Pearson product-moment correlation coefficients were significant for pain intensity and pain distress at all three times, pain intensity and joint flexion at T1 and pain intensity at T1 and at T2.
