International society develops 25 treatment recommendations for knee and

MT. LAUREL, N.J., Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- A newly released set of treatment recommendations for knee and hip osteoarthritis may help millions of people worldwide who live in pain due to inconsistent treatment approaches and confusion about what therapies are most effective.
