What is the difference between hip and knee osteoarthritis? with Dr Michelle Hall
Hip and knee osteoarthritis are leading causes of global disability. Most osteoarthritis research has focused on the knee, but what do we know about hip osteoarthritis? Although they are both joints in the leg, there are differences in the prevalence, outcomes and recommended treatments. On this episode of Joint Action, we are joined by Dr Michelle Hall to discuss the differences in hip and knee osteoarthritis.
Dr Michelle Hall is a Senior Research Fellow and Dame Kate Campbell Fellow in the Centre for Health, Exercise and Sports Medicine within the Department of Physiotherapy at the University of Melbourne. Michelle is an emerging leader in the field of hip and knee osteoarthritis, with particular interest in exercise.
