Research Review - Does cartilage loss cause pain in osteoarthritis and if so, how much?
In this week's research review, Alex explores the relationship between cartilage loss and osteoarthritis related pain.The focus in the management and prevention of future deterioration of osteoarthritis pain has focused around the concept of chondral surface protection and in some cases regeneration. However, there has never been an established link showing a definitive relationship between loss of cartilage leading to increased pain.This is the question this study looks to answer and it's an interesting one!
