Knee osteoarthritis is a major contributor to the global burden of disease. There is a need of reducing knee joint load and to improve balance and physical function among knee osteoarthritis patients.
Our study analyzes the association between chemokine-ligand-2 (CCL2) serum concentrations at baseline and knee radiographic OA (knee-rOA), knee-rOA progression, individual radiographic features and kn...
Crepitus is a common clinical feature of knee osteoarthritis. However, the importance of crepitus in the overall clinical presentation of individuals with knee osteoarthritis is unknown.
To study the development of early knee osteoarthritis (OA) in subjects with and without risk factors for knee OA.
