About the Study
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disorder around the world. It affects over 27 million people in the United States and 40 million people in Europe. OA of the knee wears and tears at your cartilage, a cushion and protector between your bones, until the cartilage is gone. This leaves your bones grinding up against each other, causing pain, swelling or even the knee to lock or stick during movement.
Rochester Clinical research is currently adding individuals between the ages of 40 -75 years old to an interest list for a research study aimed at reducing your knee pain for those who suffer from osteoarthritis in the knee.
Study lengths vary and compensation is available for time and travel. Study related care is available to participants at no cost and health insurance is not required nor needed.
