Knee osteoarthritis (KOA), also called degenerative knee disease, is one of the most common bone and joint diseases in clinic. It often occurs in middle-aged people, especially women. It was estimated to affect more than 9 million individuals in the United States in 2005 and is a leading cause of disability and medical costs. Most elderly people over the age of 65 have radiographic and/or clinical evidence of osteoarthritis. KOA is a lifelong disease which can lead to obvious p...
To evaluate the effect of fumigation in conjunction with acupuncture for knee osteoarthritis, participators were collected from acupuncture and Chinese traumatology clinic at Linsen Chinese Medicine and Kunming Branch, Taipei City Hospital. Participators were randomized into 3 groups, one for acupuncture with fumigation, one for acupuncture with diluted fumigation, one for acupuncture only.
Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) is a major public health problem among the elderly and is associated with considerable disability. A recent analysis of data indicated that about 35% of women and men aged 60 years and above had radiographic knee OA.Despite the high prevalence rate of OA, the treatment of OA is far from satisfactory. Acupuncture may be a promising treatment option for knee OA due to the effectiveness of the pain relief and the rarity of adverse effects. In order to get...
The aim of this study was to evalute three different acupuncture techniques, including one sham control, in its effect on osteoarthitis of the knee
Interactions between patients and healthcare providers may have a significant impact on a patient's response to therapy. In this study, patients with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee will receive either acupuncture or sham acupuncture. The acupuncturists will be trained to interact with the patients in specific ways. The study will evaluate those interactions.
Knee osteoarthritis (KOA), also called degenerative knee disease, is one of the most common bone and joint diseases in clinic. It was estimated to affect more than 9 million individuals in the United States in 2005 and is a leading cause of disability and medical costs. Most elderly people over the age of 65 have radiographic and/or clinical evidence of osteoarthritis. KOA is a lifelong disease which can lead to obvious pain, joint stiffness, limitation of activity and even joi...
The results of the proposed experiments will directly inform clinicians who treat patients with osteoarthritis of the knee about how to maximize the benefits of acupuncture treatments. And because the experiments specifically asks the question of what is the relation between a patient's expectation of how a treatment will relieve their pain and the outcome of the treatment, the results will potentially inform care givers about all treatments for osteoarthritis and other chroni...
Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) a chronic disease with symptoms of persistent pain or rest pain , joint stiffness, numbness, limitation of activity and even disability, with significant associated costs and effects on individuals' life quality. Acupuncture as an approach for the management of chronic pain, is receiving increasing recognition from both the public and professionals. The aim of this study is to indicate the effects of three commonly used acupuncture treatments for KOA.
This is a two-armed randomised controlled pilot study that investigates the component efficacy of moxibustion for osteoarthritis of the knee. Participants will be randomised to receive either warm needle acupuncture or needle acupuncture. Participants and acupuncturists will be blinded to group allocation. The primary and secondary outcome measures are WOMAC and SF36 respectively. Qualitative interviews will be used to gather information on the patients' experiences and percept...
The purpose of this study is to estimate the cost-effectiveness of acupuncture and to determine the long-term outcomes and health care utilization of people with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee.
No randomized trials have tested the effectiveness of acupuncture as a supplement to rehabilitation after total knee replacement. Studies from related fields, however, have shown reduction of symptoms as a result of acupuncture treatment in patients with knee pain caused by severe osteoarthritis in the knee. Furthermore, studies have reported that the need of pain medication was lower when acupuncture treatment was performed immediately after knee surgery. The aim of thi...
The goal of this study is to use single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (f-MRI) of the brain to study the response of both normal participants and participants with Osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee to acupuncture.
The study evaluates analgesic, antiinflammatory and metabolic effects of a supplement Epigenome-Antivir (extracts of glycyrrhiza roots, hippophae rhamnoides leaves, curcumin, green tea, and vitamin C) combined with acupuncture in patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA) and metabolic syndrome.
Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) is one of the most common musculoskeletal diseases in clinic. It usually occurs in middle-aged people, especially women. An estimated lifetime risk for KOA is approximately 40% in men and 47% in women. KOA is a chronic disease which can lead to obvious pain, joint stiffness, limitation of activity and even disability, with significant associated costs and effects on society, health systems, and individuals. The use of acupuncture as an approach for the...
The goal of this research is to determine the efficacy and safety of Traditional Chinese Acupuncture (TCA) in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. A three arm randomized controlled trial (RCT) using sham TCA, true TCA, and an education/attention comparison group with a total sample of 525 is proposed. Primary hypothesis to be tested is that patients randomized to true TCA will have significantly more improvement in pain and function as measured by the Womac Pain & Functi...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether implanting gold beads extraarticularly in five acupuncture-points around a knee improves pain, stiffness and function in patients with knee osteoarthritis.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the feasibility, effectiveness, and duration of treatment response of periosteal electro-acupuncture (osteopuncture) for osteoarthritis (OA)-associated chronic knee pain.
180 veterans with chronic knee pain and advanced knee osteoarthritis will be recruited to participate in this study designed to test the effectiveness of a special type of electrical acupuncture called periosteal stimulation (PST). Participants will be divided into three groups. They will receive PST or a control condition once a week for 10 weeks. Two-thirds of the participants will receive booster sessions periodically over the course of the next 6 months. Everyone will b...
The treatment that patients with knee OA are offered varies largely. There is a need for more evidence-based individualized guidance to treatment choice for knee osteoarthritis. This study will register and evaluate the course and outcome of treatment in 5,000 patients with knee osteoarthritis. The understanding of knee OA treatment will advance in three ways: Firstly, by describing the different treatment pathways that are currently being used for knee OA. Secondly, by identif...
This study compared the effects of tidal lavage (washing out) of the knee joint and an imitation lavage procedure in people with knee osteoarthritis. In tidal lavage, the doctor flushes out a knee joint with repeated injections of a mild salt solution, done under local anesthesia. Study participants had to meet standard criteria for diagnosis of osteoarthritis but could have low, medium, or high severity of x-ray changes indicating knee osteoarthritis. We performed the lavage p...
The population affected by degenerative knee arthritis is very large. The investigator performed dry needle (DN) treatments with acupuncture needles. This experiment used a randomized single-blind experiment to assess the immediate, short-term and long-term effects of dry needle therapy on patellar pain in patients with degenerative arthritis.
The hypotheses of this study are: In the older population with knee OA, - When acupoints are chosen for both sleep and pain, there are additive effects on sleep improvement and pain relief (i.e. no interaction). - Main effects of acupuncture on sleep improvement and pain relief are anticipated when acupoints are separately targeted for sleep and for pain, respectively.
The study evaluates pain relief and subsequent range of motion changes combining battlefield acupuncture with sodium hyaluronate vs local anesthetic and sodium hyaluronate
The purpose of this study is to determine whether Gel-One demonstrates a superior effectiveness in osteoarthritis (OA) knee pain compared with phosphate buffered saline (PBS) injections.
The purpose of this study is to use better magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to examine the knee and the bony and soft tissue changes so as to better predict the progression of osteoarthritis and acute knee injuries.
