Join a pilot study to test combined treatments for knee osteoarthritis and mood changes!
Knee pain is a leading cause of discomfort worldwide. People who have knee osteoarthritis experience great pain and that can influence their mood. Currently, there is no cure for osteoarthritis, but there are a number of treatments to help relieve the symptoms. We are hoping to help patients by treating both physical pain and mood by using a combination of exercise and medication.
If you enroll in this study, you will participate in a six-month-long study involving an aerobic exercise walking program and the antidepressant medication Cymbalta. If you agree to participate, you will be helping future patients with knee osteoarthritis live healthier and happier lives.
