Whether it’s from simply getting up out of bed in the mor ning, gardening, walking the dog, driving the car, or sitting down for too long, knee pain is a common and debilitating problem for many people. Osteoarthr itis is the most common cause of knee pain in people over 50 years of age. It is the third leading cause of disability in Australia after depression and dementia. People with osteoarthritis have more difficulty doing everyday things and they take longer doing them. As part of self-management, many sufferers of osteoarthritis supplement their diet with micro or macro-nutrients, or take natural remedies. However, evidence for the effectiveness of these supplements and natural remedies is often lacking and further research is needed to validate their benefit. Researchers at the Menzies Research Institute Tasmania have begun a new participant-based study that investigates the benefits of vitamin D in managing the progression of osteoarthritis. “ With limited current treatments, Men zies has set up a study to determine if vitamin D is actually an effective therapy for osteoarthritis,” s ays Menzies’ Associate Professor Changhai Ding. “ We are currently looking for people who suffer osteoarthr itis- related knee pain and would be interested in taking part in this study.” Volunteers need to be aged between 50-79 years old, suffer from knee pain on most days, and able to have an MRI scan on the knee. If you’re interested in being involved in the study, please call Kay Nguo on 6226 7793 or Jodi Barling on 6226 4602; or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
