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 looking for people with ongoing ankle pain or stiffness, and/or a known diagnosis of ankle osteoarthritis to participate in one or both ankle studies described below:    

  • Study 1 is a lab study that involves coming to The University of Queensland, St Lucia campus, to participate in physical testing of the ankle.  Researchers will test posture, ankle muscle strength, joint mobility, sensation, balance, and function.  Research volunteers will be reimbursed for their time and participation with a gift voucher and free x-ray.  If you have or think you have ankle osteoarthrosis, interested in assessing your ankle, and able to attend for lab testing at UQ please express your interest by clicking https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/EOI-Lab
  • Study 2 involves completing online questionnaires about symptoms and disability associated with ankle osteoarthritis.  This study can be completed by individuals living anywhere in Australia.  Completing the survey takes approximately 20-30 minutes, and will help us to better understand the problems experienced by people with ankle osteoarthritis.  To complete the online survey, please click:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ankle-pain-Part2
