Abstract

Pressure algometry is one of a number of outcome measures that manual therapy practitioners are able to use in both clinical and research settings. The pressure algometer is used to determine the pressure pain threshold of specific muscle and bone locations. The objective of the article is to determine the validity of a commonly utilised electronic pressure algometer.
