Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the leading cause of disability. Walking speed is an essential indicator of functional limitation. Individuals with symptomatic OA (sOA) are at high risk of rapid declines in walking speed.
Today, Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is assumed to be highly prevalent as due to recent increases in life expectancy and body mass index (BMI), but this assumption has not been tested applying the long-term historical or evolutionary data.
Around 60% - 80% adults experience low back pain (LBP) at some point throughout their lifetime. Various treatment options are available for LBP management, but it is crucial to issue an evidence-based assessment for these options.
Around 1% of world's population suffers from rheumatoid arthritis (RA). People between 40 – 65 years are prone to RA with women three times more likely to get affected as compared to men. The study mentioned here was performed with an objective to analyze the immediate effects of a thin, easily customizable insole on pain and walking ability of RA patients, who have forefoot pain. It even determined whether the insoles were in use one year afterwards.
Psoriatic arthritis, an inflammatory autoimmune arthritis disease, which if left untreated or treated unsuccessfully, can initiate severe joint, bone damage and functional disability. Affecting nearly 2 percent of the population, this arthritis commonly develops between the ages of 30 to 50 with symptoms like pain, swelling and stiffness.
