Exercise and weight loss are two key conservative treatment strategies for managing symptoms associated with knee osteoarthritis. We will be undertaking a series of research projects that will aim to contribute to and expand on current knowledge around the effects that exercise and calorie restriction, alone and combined can have on a range of features associated with knee osteoarthritis.
Project 1 – To offer an overview on the effect that exercise has on features of pain sensitisation in individuals with lower limb osteoarthritis.
Project 2 – to compare the effects of two different types of exercise on short term pain responses in individuals with knee osteoarthritis.
Project 3 – to compare the effects of a diet and exercise intervention on inflammation and pain in individuals with knee osteoarthritis.
