Pain mechanisms should always be considered in rheumatology research!


Researchers from the Parker Institute are part of global initiatives exploring how different pain mechanisms (i.e., nociceptive, neuropathic, nociplastic) impact different health outcomes - modifying, confounding and potentially even bias the outcome measures applied across various aspects of Rheumatic Musculoskeletal Diseases.

Thus, Pain phenotype constitutes an important contextual factor in rheumatology.
