Patients With Knee Osteoarthritis Benefit From "Mobility Shoes," Rush University Medical Center Study


4/12/2013 8:02:52 AM

New research suggests that patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA) who wear flat, flexible footwear (mobility shoes) had significant reduction in knee loading - the force placed upon the joint during daily activities.
