hip/ knee OA and neuromuscular training

3 of 3 X-ray Journey Deuce knee replacement, Michael L. Baird 29 Dec. 2008

Here is an interesting initial study, examining the question if neuromuscular training is feasible in older adults with severe hip or knee OA. The study shows it is tolerated well by the measures they used. I’m curious to know if they plan a follow-up study to show outcomes/ functional improvements and maybe compare it to strengthening alone (which is something they noted needed to be examined in future research).
