I wonder how much money was dumped into this study. Wow using a cane would help someone with arthritis. Do you think we are stupid or something?
If you are hurting you will find whatever you can in order to get around. If a cane helps you will use it. If a walker helps you will use it. It doesn't take a study to figure it out, it just takes a couple days of pain and one will figure out how to make it hurt less. How can I get some grant money like that? Where are the truly worthwhile studies that are working towards a cure, or replacing cartilege? That's where I want my money to go. I used to donate to the Arthritis Foundation but if they are doing studies like this, I will find a better place for my money.
