Participants wanted

The VA Palo Alto and Stanford University Human Performance Lab are recruiting adults of all ages to participate in a research study investigating the effects of a non-surgical treatment for knee osteoarthritis. Participants in this study will be asked to learn a personalized walking pattern, which may reduce their knee pain. Those interested should currently be able to walk for at least 25 consecutive minutes, experience knee pain most days of the week, and have the desire to become more active.
