Studies suggest that knee osteoarthritis (OA) affects up to 80% of people older than 65 years—and its prevalence among those 65 and younger seems to be increasing. Exercise therapy has proven to be an effective first-line treatment, but the pain and functional deficits caused by this degenerative condition often progress to the point where knee replacement becomes the best management option. 

This complimentary webinar addresses two crucial clinical questions surrounding knee OA:

  • Can the non-surgical management of this prevalent condition be improved?
  • How can patients and their health care providers come to better decisions about when to intervene surgically?

Moderated by JBJS Deputy Editor for Adult Reconstruction Charles Clark, MD, this hour-long webinar will tackle these questions.  Author Kevin Bozic, MD, MBA will present salient conclusions from his JBJS study showing increased all-around satisfaction when patients with knee OA and their doctors engage in "shared decision-making."  Then J. Haxby Abbott, DPT, PhD will discuss findings to be published in JOSPT about the incremental benefits of manual therapy and "booster sessions" added to traditional exercise therapy for knee OA. After the author presentations, two additional knee OA experts, Mark Spangehl, MD and Linda Li, PT, PhD, will share their perspectives on the data and their own experiences managing knee arthritis.
