Journal Article

OBJECTIVE: Clinical guidelines recommend exercise as a core treatment for knee or hip osteoarthritis (OA). However, how its analgesic effect compares to analgesics, for example, oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and paracetamol-the...

Prevalence of ultrasound-detected knee synovial abnormalities in a middle-aged and older general population—the Xiangya Osteoarthritis Study (2021)
Journal Article

Background: There is paucity of data on the prevalence of ultrasound-detected synovial abnormalities in the general population, and the relationship between synovial changes and knee pain remains unclear. We examined the prevalence of synovial abnorm...
