To develop an evidence‐based guideline for the comprehensive management of osteoarthritis (OA) as a collaboration between the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) and the Arthritis Foundation, updating the 2012 ACR recommendations for the management of hand, hip, and knee OA. 
Management of knee and hip osteoarthritis: an opportunity for the Canadian chiropractic profession.
TLDR
The authors discuss the opportunity for the Canadian chiropractic profession to embrace treatment programs like GLA:D® and take an active role in the strengthening of the Canadian health system from a musculoskeletal perspective.
Treatment Recommendations for the Management of Osteoarthritis
TLDR
The clinical capsule aims to describe the guidelines for OA as outlined by the ACR so that pharmacists in any type of setting, but especially in the community, can recommend appropriate therapy and counsel patients accordingly.
New OA management guidelines

TLDR
New evidence­ based guidelines for the management of osteoarthritis of the hands, hip and knees have been provided by the American College of Rheumato­ logy and the Arthritis Foundation, updating previous ACR recommendations from 2012.
Physical Therapy Is Better than Glucocorticoid Injections for Osteoarthritis of the Knee
TLDR
The results of a recent randomized clinical trial comparing the efficacy of physical therapy with glucocorticoid injections for treatment of knee osteoarthritis are reported.
In knee OA, physical therapy reduced pain and improved function more than glucocorticoid injections at 1 year
  • D. Hunter
  • Medicine
    Annals of Internal Medicine
  • 2020
TLDR
It is concluded that physical therapy versus glucocorticoid injection for osteoarthritis of the knee should be considered as a best method for treatment.
Is There Any Role for Opioids in the Management of Knee and Hip Osteoarthritis? A Systematic Review and Meta‐Analysis
TLDR
Clinicians and policy makers should reconsider the utility of opioids in the management of OA, after it was revealed that incremental pain relief achieved beyond 20-50 mg doses was not substantial in the context of increased safety risks.
Osteoarthritis Care and Risk of Total Knee Arthroplasty Among Medicare Beneficiaries: A Population‐Based Study of Regional Covariation
  • M. Ward
  • Medicine
    Arthritis & rheumatology
  • 2021
TLDR
To examine health care utilization among patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA) and assess whether utilization differs among residents of regions with high and low rates of total knee arthroplasty (TKA), a large number of patients in these regions have had TKA treatment.
Do Glucocorticoid Injections Increase the Risk of Knee Osteoarthritis Progression Over 5 Years?
TLDR
This study was undertaken to assess, in a real‐life setting, the risk of knee OA progression in patients who received IA glucocorticoid injections over a 5‐year follow-up period.
A systematic review of clinical practice guidelines for persons with osteoarthritis. A “Best Evidence for Rehabilitation” (be4rehab) paper to develop the WHO’s Package of Interventions for Rehabilitation
TLDR
The results of a systematic search that aimed to identify clinical practice guidelines relevant to the rehabilitation of people with osteoarthritis are reported and the recommendations and the current state of evidence available for the interventions in the CPGs are presented.
Non-surgical management of knee osteoarthritis: comparison of ESCEO and OARSI 2019 guidelines
TLDR
A working group including authors of the latest OARSI and ESCEO recommendations for the management of knee osteoarthritis and independent experts compare and contrast these guidelines, and provide insights into their differences that could help inform application of the recommendations.

Lifetime Risk of Symptomatic Hand Osteoarthritis: The Johnston County Osteoarthritis Project
TLDR
The objective of the present study was to estimate the overall lifetime risk of symptomatic hand OA, and the stratified lifetime risk according to potential risk factors.
Alternative Methods for Defining Osteoarthritis and the Impact on Estimating Prevalence in a US Population‐Based Survey
TLDR
A contemporary estimate of osteoarthritis (OA) is provided by comparing the accuracy and prevalence of alternative definitions of OA by comparison with current estimates.
Association of Tramadol With All-Cause Mortality Among Patients With Osteoarthritis
TLDR
Among patients aged 50 years and older with osteoarthritis, initial prescription of tramadol was associated with a significantly higher rate of mortality over 1 year of follow-up compared with commonly prescribed nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, but not compared with codeine.
Subgroup analyses of the effectiveness of oral glucosamine for knee and hip osteoarthritis: a systematic review and individual patient data meta-analysis from the OA trial bank
TLDR
There is no goodEvidence to support the use of glucosamine for hip or knee OA and an absence of evidence to support specific consideration of glucOSamine for any clinically relevant OA subgroup according to baseline pain severity, BMI, sex, structural abnormalities or presence of inflammation.
Intentional Weight Loss in Overweight and Obese Patients With Knee Osteoarthritis: Is More Better?
TLDR
To determine the dose response effect of weight loss on clinical and mechanistic outcomes in overweight and obese adults with knee osteoarthritis, a large number of subjects were obese or severely overweight.
A Hierarchy of Patient-Reported Outcomes for Meta-Analysis of Knee Osteoarthritis Trials: Empirical Evidence from a Survey of High Impact Journals
TLDR
Using a prioritised list based on responsiveness for extracting patient-reported outcomes (PROs) measuring pain and disability for performing meta-analyses in knee osteoarthritis is recommended to reduce risk of biased selection of PROs in meta-Analyses.
Effect of Intra-articular Triamcinolone vs Saline on Knee Cartilage Volume and Pain in Patients With Knee Osteoarthritis: A Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
2 years of intra-articular triamcinolone, compared with intra-artsicular saline, resulted in significantly greater cartilage volume loss and no significant difference in knee pain, and these findings do not support this treatment for patients with symptomatic knee osteoarthritis.
Massage Therapy for Osteoarthritis of the Knee: A Randomized Dose-Finding Trial
TLDR
Given the superior convenience of a once-weekly protocol, cost savings, and consistency with a typical real-world massage protocol, the 60-minute once weekly dose was determined to be optimal, establishing a standard for future trials.
