Svensk artrosbehandling är i framkant men underutnyttjad

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a highly prevalent group of disorders and among the most common causes of chronic pain and disability globally. First-line evidence-based treatments for hip and knee OA, two of the most common variants, are available in Sweden with the potential for wide national reach through face-to-face and digital platforms. Research results suggest important reductions in symptoms in patients with knee or hip OA. Despite evidence, availability and low cost, first-line evidence-based treatments are not utilized to the full extent to reduce the burden of OA.
