Abstract

Background: To determine if electronic pressure algometry is a statistically stable measure of spinal pressure pain threshold (PPT) in asymptomatic individuals, in particular, to determine if repeated measurements at the same site changes the PPT, and to determine if repeatability differs in each of the spinal regions tested.
