Brief description Chronic knee pain is a common and disabling musculoskeletal condition that causes a loss of functional independence and results in significant health care costs. In the majority of patients the most common cause is osteoarthritis. Acupuncture is a form of non-surgical treatment commonly sought by patients and often recommended by GP's. The main outcomes from our project are to establish the role, clinical effectiveness and cost benefit of laser and needle acupuncture in knee pain patients.
