Clinical Scenario: Hip osteoarthritis currently affects up to 28% percent of the population, and the number of affected Americans is expected to rise as the American population increases and ages.1,2 Limited hip range of motion (ROM) has been identified as a predisposing factor to hip osteoarthritis and limited patient function.3,4 Clinicians often apply therapy techniques, such as stretching and strengthening exercises, to improve hip ROM.5 Although traditional therapy has been recommended to improve hip ROM, the efficiency of the treatments within the literature are questionable due to lack of high quality studies...

Joint pain attributable to osteoarthritis (OA) is complex and influenced by a myriad of factors beyond local joint pathology. Current practice continues to predominantly adopt a biomedical approach to OA despite emerging evidence of the importance of a more holistic approach. This paper will summarise evidence for the presence of multidimensional pain profiles in knee joint pain and the presence of subgroups characterized by systemic features such as psychological distress, high comorbidity load or sensitisation of the nervous system...

BACKGROUND: Exercise interventions improve clinical outcomes of pain and function in adults with knee pain due to osteoarthritis and higher levels of physical activity are associated with lower severity of pain and higher levels of physical functioning in older adults with knee osteoarthritis in cross-sectional studies. However, to date no studies have investigated if change in physical activity level during exercise interventions can explain clinical outcomes of pain and function. This study aimed to investigate if change in physical activity during exercise interventions is associated with future pain and physical function in older adults with knee pain...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of hand osteoarthritis (HOA) has been reported to be higher amongst women over 50 years old (66%) compared to men of the same age (34%). Although exercise therapy has been shown effective in reducing symptoms and disability associated with HOA, adherence to treatment programs remains low. The primary objective of this RCT is to examine the effectiveness of a 12-week knitting program for morning stiffness (primary outcome) and pain relief (secondary outcome) 2 h post-wakening in females (aged 50 to 85 years old) with mild to moderate hand osteoarthritis (HOA)...

Sirtuins (SIRT1-7) are NAD+-dependent deacetylase/deacylases that regulate a wide variety of biological functions. Although the roles of sirtuins in cartilage homeostasis and cartilage diseases have been well studied, there is no information on the contribution of SIRT7 to cartilage homeostasis and osteoarthritis (OA) pathologies. Here, we demonstrate that Sirt7 knockout mice are resistant to the development of aging-associated OA and forced exercise-induced OA. Attenuation of Sirt7 in the murine chondrogenic cell line ATDC5 increased the deposition of a glycosaminoglycan-rich extracellular matrix and the mRNA expression of extracellular matrix components such as Col2a1 and Acan...

Background: Ergonomic hazards are the most important cause of knee osteoarthritis (OA) in aged para rubber farmers. Ergonomic management comprising improvement of working conditions and muscle-strengthening exercise has been well documented in terms of workers' health benefit. However, those interventions were not adequate to sustain the advantage. Few studies have demonstrated the effect of integrating participatory ergonomic management (PEM) in non-weight-bearing exercise (NWE) and progressive resistance exercise (PRE), and none has focused on aged para rubber farmers with knee OA...
