Abstract

Date Presented 4/18/2015

Hand pain is common, but how much does pain contribute to deficits in manual ability? In this study, we examined the relationship between perceived pain and the Manual Ability Measure—20 (MAM–20). The results suggest that occupational therapists (OTs) should assess pain and manual ability, as there does not appear to be substantial overlap between these concepts.
