Brief Summary:
The objective of this study was to objectively measure daily physical activity and spatiotemporal gait pattern, as well as improvements in self reported symptoms and quality of life, before and six weeks after an intra-articular corticosteroids injection in patients suffering from knee osteoarthritis. Fourteen patients with unilateral knee osteoarthritis were recruited. The intra-articular corticosteroid injection was given at the end of the second week. Physical activity was objectively measured by an accelerometer worn by the participants for eight weeks. In addition, the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Arthritis Index (WOMAC), the Medical Outcome Study Short Form-36 (MOS-SF36) and gait trials were completed every two weeks to assess symptoms, quality of life and spatiotemporal parameters of gait.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Injection
Corticosteroids injection
Drug: Corticosteroids injection
A solution of triamcinolone 40 mg (Kenalog) mixed with 3 cc of 2% xylocaine without epinephrine.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Knee pain [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline at 2, 4 and 6 weeks ]
  2. Change in physical activity [ Time Frame: Change from baseline at 2, 4 and 6 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in function and quality of life [ Time Frame: Change from baseline at 2, 4 and 6 weeks ]
    Assessment with WOMAC and MOS-SF36 questionnaires

  2. Change in Spatiotemporal gait parameters [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline at 2, 4 and 6 weeks ]
    Gait symmetry was verified with regards to the swing and stance phase durations and step length
