Do You Have Ongoing Ankle Pain?

Do you have or think you have ANKLE JOINT OSTEOARTHRITIS?

If you have or think you have ankle osteoarthrosis, join us to uncover how ankle OA affects people.

Researchers at The University of Queensland are undertaking a series of research projects to investigate the effects of ankle osteoarthritis on function, muscle strength, joint movement, posture and sensitivity.

We are looking for people over 18 years of age with ongoing ankle pain or stiffness, and/or a known diagnosis of ankle osteoarthritis to participate in this research.

We are recruiting participants for two studies:  

  • Study 1 involves completing on online questionnaire about symptoms and disability associated with ankle osteoarthritis. This study can be completed by individuals living anywhere in Australia. This survey takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete, and will help us to better understand the problems experienced by people with ankle osteoarthritis. To thank you for participating in this study you will be send a Merlo coffee voucher. To complete the online survey, please click: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ankle-pain-study
  • Study 2 involves coming to The University of Queensland, St Lucia campus, to participate in physical testing of the ankle. We will test muscle strength, joint movement, posture, sensitivity and performance during a range of daily task. You will receive a Cole-Myers voucher to thank you for your participation in this study. If you are interested in participating in testing of your ankle please visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/EOI-Lab or email munira.almahrouqi@uq.net.au.
