Abstract

The aim of this study was to predict the 2-year course of activity limitations in patients with early knee and/or hip osteoarthritis (OA). The Cohort Hip & Cohort Knee (CHECK) study is a prospective followup study. The CHECK cohort, comprising participants (n 1,002) with early OA-related knee and/or hip symptoms, was followed for 2 years. Participants completed questionnaires and underwent physical, laboratory, and radiographic examination. Regression models were
used to examine whether baseline variables predicted the course of activity limitations as measured with the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC). Analyses were performed separately for participants
with knee symptoms and participants with hip symptoms.
