NORWALK, Conn., April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that Musculoskeletal Network features exclusive coverage of the Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI), concluded on Sunday, April 21, in Philadelphia. OARSI is the premier international organization for scientists and health care professionals focused on the prevention and treatment of osteoarthritis (OA).
The latest reports from the world's top researchers in osteoarthritis include new support from a large study in Europe for use of the supplement chondroitin sulfate to treat osteoarthritis pain, new tests that will allow doctors to better judge fitness in patients with osteoarthritis of the hip and knee, and a debate about whether osteoarthritis specialists have been paying too little attention to arthritis pain as they focus on physical changes in bones and joint tissues.
Other topics to be covered in forthcoming articles include new reports on the benefits of exercise for relieving osteoarthritis, research toward better medications to relieve osteoarthritis pain, and progress toward finding ways to identify people whose osteoarthritis is likely to worsen rapidly rather than remaining stable for years or decades.
