Assessing the efficacy of the stop osteoarthritis (SOAR) Program: A randomized delayed-controlled trial for persons at increased risk of early onset post-traumatic knee osteoarthritis.

The SOAR Program is a physiotherapist guided knee health program designed to help people who are at-risk for knee osteoarthritis development build the capability to self-manage their long-term knee health. This study assessed how well an 8-week SOAR Program does in that regard and found that participant’s experienced improvements in their belief about their ability to actively engage and manage their long-term knee health.
