The Minimal Clinically Important Difference (MCID) is receiving increasing interest and importance in medical practice and research. The MCID is the smallest improvement in scores in the domain of interest which patients perceive as beneficial. In clinical trials, comparing the proportion of individuals between treatment and control groups who obtain a MCID may be more informative than comparisons of mean change between groups since a statistically significant mean difference does not necessarily represent a difference that is perceived as meaningful by treatment recipients.

Patients at-risk of, or those with knee osteoarthritis (OA) may present with a knee flexion contracture (FC). A knee FC can cause pain and can decrease function. By altering lower extremity biomechanics, the impact of a knee FC goes beyond the affected joint. Compensatory movements during gait can chronically affect other joints in both lower limbs. Few studies describe the impact of a knee FC on, or direct assessment toward, the contralateral knee. We investigated the associations between knee FC with range of extension, function, pain, and stiffness of the contralateral knee.
