Abstract Our primary objective was to examine external hip joint moments during walking in people with mild radiographic hip osteoarthritis (OA) with and without symptoms and disease-free controls. Three groups were compared (symptomatic with mild radiographic hip OA, n = 12; asymptomatic with mild radiographic hip OA, n = 13; OA-free controls, n = 20). Measures of the external moment (peak and impulse) in the sagittal, frontal and transverse plane during walking were determined. Variables were ...

ObjectiveThe aim of this study was to evaluate referral and treatment delays by ethnicity/race in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) treated at an academic rheumatology center.MethodsWe reviewed the medical records of all RA patients evaluated at an outpatient clinic between 2011 and 2016 to id

Abstract Background The knee adduction moment (KAM) is a surrogate measure of mediolateral distribution of loads across the knee joint and is correlated with progression and severity of knee osteoarthritis (OA). Existing biomechanical approaches for unloading the arthritic medial knee compartment vary in their effectiveness in reducing KAM. This study employed a completely wireless, pressure-detecting shoe insole capable of generating auditory feedback via a smartphone. Research question: To inv...

Introduction:Little is known about the loading patterns in unilateral hip osteoarthritis (OA) and their relationship to radiographic severity and pain. We aimed to examine the loading patterns at the hips of those with unilateral symptomatic hip OA and identify associations between radiographic severity and pain with loading alterations.Methods:61 subjects with symptomatic unilateral hip OA underwent gait analyses and evaluation for radiographic severity (Kellgren-Lawrence [KL]-grade) and pain (...

The study compares patient–physician discordance in global assessment in patients with osteoarthritis (OA) versus patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) seen in routine care. This is a cross-sectional study conducted at an academic rheumatology center at which all patients are asked to complete a Multi-Dimensional Health Assessment Questionnaire (MDHAQ), which includes a patient global assessment (PATGL). Rheumatologists are encouraged to complete a physician questionnaire, which includes a phy...

Pain in osteoarthritis (OA) remains poorly understood. Different types of somatosensory alterations exist in OA including hyperesthesia and increased sensitivity to painful stimuli as well as those of decreased sensitivity to cutaneous stimuli including vibratory perception threshold. The relationship between these different somatosensory measures has not been previously evaluated in OA. In this observational study, we evaluated relationships between vibratory perception (VPT), pressure pain det...

Background Glucocorticoids are commonly used in a wide variety of inflammatory conditions treated by rheumatologists. Bone loss from glucocorticoids is known to occur early and with relatively small doses. The American College of Rheumatology outlines that Glucocorticoid-Induced Osteoporosis (GIOP) is under screened and undertreated. The ACR guidelines suggest standard clinical care to obtain a baseline DEXA in any individual with anticipated long-term steroid use, primary prevention with calciu...

Background: Disparities in the initiation of disease modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) therapy in ethnic minorities have been described in rheumatoid arthritis (RA)(1). These disparities are of particular concern in view of the emergence of early diagnosis and aggressive treatment as a cornerstone of management. Delays in diagnosis and treatment have been ascribed in part to lack of awareness, insidious onset, and atypical clinical presentation, but patient-dependent factors may be as impor...
