Observational Arthritis foundation Internet Study (OASIS): Physical Activity and Pain 

Are you 45+ with knee pain? Learn more about our online exercise study at the link below.

The purpose of this research study is to examine the relationship of reduced sedentary behavior with meaningful changes in pain, physical function, and Health Related Quality of Life.

We are studying the relationship of physical activity with pain and physical function in a Nationwide, internet-recruited study of 500 adults with arthritis.  Our study will make it possible, for the first time, to evaluate physical activity and their relationship with pain and functional limitation in adults with all types of arthritis.

These findings will lead to identifying how much physical activity needs to be increased to meet recommended guidelines, which can serve as an important metric for future clinical intervention trials.

This study is funded by the Arthritis Foundation.
