Professor Philip Conaghan

Professor and Chair of Musculoskeletal Medicine, University of Leeds

It’s great to see that AposTherapy are serious about looking into the mechanisms by which their therapy might be effective.” 

 

 

Professor Philip Conaghan commented:

The osteoarthritis research community accepts that biomechanical interventions will theoretically be a good thing - what we need is the evidence that this can happen. It’s great to see that AposTherapy are serious about looking into the mechanisms by which their therapy might be effective.”

“People don’t really understand what this problem is – they understand cancer because it can kill you, but they don’t understand knee osteoarthritis. In fact, around half of people with severe knee pain do not go to the doctors, possibly through a misconception that nothing can be done, that it’s simply part of getting old. So how do you treat people? Well we would welcome anything that helps people. Patient compliance is ultimately what it comes down to.”
