Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pain on Movement [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 6 ]
    Subjects will record their level of Pain on Movement in the target knee on a 100-mm VAS scale (with anchors 0=no pain; 100=extreme pain) in response to the question, 'How do you estimate the average amount of your study knee pain while moving during your daily activities within the last 24 hours?'


Secondary Outcome Measures :

  5. Current Knee Pain [ Time Frame: Baseline to Hours 2-6 ]
    After completing a walk of approximately 50 feet, subjects will record their level of Current Knee Pain in the target knee on a 100-mm Visual Analog Scale (with anchors 0=no pain; 100=extreme pain) in response to the question, 'How do you estimate the amount of your study knee pain right now?'

  6. WOMAC Stiffness Subscale [ Time Frame: Baseline to Weeks 2, 4 and 6 ]
    The WOMAC NRS3.1 OA Index is a validated, segregated, multidimensional, self-administered index with three independent dimensions: pain, physical function and stiffness.
