Study of hip pain to establish a combinatorial biomarker of hip osteoarthritis through evaluation of gait variables
The purpose of this study is to establish a combination of gait variables that characterize hip osteoarthritis. Evaluation of these variables will be performed on a group of subjects with varying levels of osteoarthritis severity through standard gait analysis. All recruiting will be performed by personnel from the Rush University Medical Center Motion Analysis Laboratory. Subjects who qualify and participate will receive X-rays on their hips and then go through a standard gait test at the Motion Analysis Laboratory.
You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:
- Have pain in one or both hips at least one day per month
- Are age 45 or older
You will be excluded from this study if you:
- Have previously been diagnosed with hip osteoarthritis
- Have had pain or prior injury, surgery or diagnosis involving the lower extremity joints, back or spine
