Abstract Objective Running is an easy way of meeting physical activity recommendations for individuals with knee osteoarthritis (KOA); however, it remains unknown how their cartilage reacts to running. The objective of this pilot study was to compare the effects of 30 min of running on T2 and T1ρ relaxation times of tibiofemoral cartilage in female runners with and without KOA. Methods Ten female runners with symptomatic KOA (mean age 52.6 ± 7.6 years) and 10 without KOA (mean age 52.5 ± 7.8 yea...

Objectives To evaluate the perceptions of the general public and healthcare practitioners (HCP) in Canada about the relationship between running and knee joint health, and to explore HCP`s usual recommendations to runners with knee osteoarthritis (KOA). Methods Non-runners and runners (with and without KOA) and HCP completed an online survey regarding the safety of running for knee joint health. HCP also provided information related to usual clinical recommendations. Proportions of agreement wer...

Summary Objective To compare changes in knee pain, function, and loading following a four-month progressive walking program with or without toe-out gait modification program in people with medial tibiofemoral knee osteoarthritis. Design Individuals with medial knee osteoarthritis were randomized to a four month program to increase walking activity with (toe-out) or without (progressive walking) concomitant toe-out gait modification. The walking program was similar between the two groups, except ...

Abstract Background Gait modification is a treatment approach often used for a variety of neuromuscular and musculoskeletal pathologies. Gait modification is commonly applied to a single limb, as is done with foot rotation (FR) in people with knee osteoarthritis (KOA). However, the extent to which gait changes observed in the trained limb are also exhibited in the untrained, contralateral limb during a training session is unknown. Research question The purpose of this study was to examine the wi...

Pronated foot posture is associated with many clinical and biomechanical outcomes unique to medial compartment knee osteoarthritis (OA). Though shoe-worn insole treatment, including lateral wedges, is commonly studied in this patient population, their effects on the specific subgroup of people with medial knee OA and concomitant pronated feet are unknown. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether lateral wedge insoles with custom arch support are more beneficial than lateral wedge insole...
