Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common type of arthritis and a leading cause of locomotor disability. Over 4.4 million people in the United Kingdom have moderate to severe OA. It is a chronic disease that causes a significant burden to society and healthcare resources and its impact is likely to increase with an ageing population and rising levels of obesity.
