Introduction:

Our understanding of the etiology and management of knee osteoarthritis is quickly evolving. This informative and engaging session will debunk several knee osteoarthritis myths, provide clinicians with a better understanding of the complex etiology of knee osteoarthritis, and provide an update of the evidence-based recommendations from several international guidelines on the conservative management of knee osteoarthritis.

 

Relevance to Physiotherapy Practice:

There is a strong push towards evidence-based practice in physiotherapy. A number of international guidelines (OARSI, EULAR, NICE and ACR) providing evidence-based recommendations on the conservative management of knee osteoarthritis are currently available to clinicians. However, current research indicates that clinical practice does not reflect these recommendations. Evidence-based guidelines have the potential to improve the quality of care provided by clinicians by promoting the use of effective interventions and discouraging unnecessary and ineffective interventions. Consequently, there is a need for better dissemination of international guideline recommendations for the conservative management of knee osteoarthritis in order to ensure optimum guideline adherence.

 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Gain a better understanding of the complex etiology of knee osteoarthritis, and identify important risk factors contributing to disease initiation and progression.
  2. Understand and integrate current recommendations from international guidelines regarding best practice in the conservative management of knee osteoarthritis.

 

Poll Questions:

  1. Knee osteoarthritis is about to wear and tear (Yes/No)
  2. Knee osteoarthritis is a disease of the elderly (Yes/No)
  3. The clinical diagnosis of knee osteoarthritis can be made without a radiograph (Yes/No)
  4. Individuals with more severe osteoarthritis report higher levels of pain (Yes/No)
  5. Loading is bad for the knee (Yes/No)
