Dr. John Chisolm commented:
"This is an enormous burden for the NHS and alternative ways to treat knee osteoarthritis are of considerable interest to commisioners, particularly new clinical pathways that result in reduced costs for the system. The working age population feels the benefits of this too - keeping people in work or helping them return to work - has cost saving implications that impact on the economy as a whole. GPs diagnose a large number of osteoarthritis sufferers each year, and so interventions that make a lasting difference to patients' experience and function are clearly very welcome."
