Journal Article
Hawarden, A., Holden, M. A., Paskins, Z., Roddy, E., Mallen, C. D., Liddle, J., …Jinks, C. (2023). Experiences of living with hip osteoarthritis and of receiving advice, education and ultrasound-guided intra-articular hip injection in the hip injection trial. A qualitative study. Musculoskeletal Care, https://doi.org/10.1002/msc.1830

Objectives: The Hip Injection Trial (HIT) compared the effectiveness of adding a single ultrasound-guided intra-articular injection of either corticosteroid and local anaesthetic, or local anaesthetic alone, to advice and education among people with...

Treatment targets and outcomes in randomised controlled trials of exercise for non-specific low back pain (2021)
Thesis
Wood, L. (2021). Treatment targets and outcomes in randomised controlled trials of exercise for non-specific low back pain. (Thesis). Keele University

Persistent non-specific low back pain (NSLBP) is the leading cause of years lived with disability globally, and exercise is the most widely recommended treatment for persistent NSLBP. Previous randomised controlled trials (RCTs) tend to conclude that... Read More about Treatment targets and outcomes in randomised controlled trials of exercise for non-specific low back pain.

Exploration of the use of decision analytic modelling in low back pain and sciatica (2020)
Thesis
Ashwell Hall, J. (2020). Exploration of the use of decision analytic modelling in low back pain and sciatica. (Thesis). Keele University

Low back pain (LBP) is a global public health problem. Keele University developed the STarT Back tool to stratify LBP patients according to their risk of persistent disability, matching treatments to individual risk. A 12-month trial-based economic e...

Subgrouping patients with sciatica in primary care for matched care pathways: development of a subgrouping algorithm (2019)
Journal Article
Konstantinou, K., Dunn, K., Windt, D., Ogollah, R., Jasani, V., & Foster, N. (2019). Subgrouping patients with sciatica in primary care for matched care pathways: development of a subgrouping algorithm. BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, https://doi.org/10.1186/s12891-019-2686-x

Background Sciatica is a painful condition managed by a stepped care approach for most patients. Currently, there are no decision-making tools to guide matching care pathways for patients with sciatica without evidence of serious pathology, early in...

Characteristics of patients with low back and leg pain seeking treatment in primary care: baseline results from the ATLAS cohort study. (2016)
Journal Article
Konstantinou, K., Dunn, K., Ogollah, R., Vogel, S., & Hay, E. (2016). Characteristics of patients with low back and leg pain seeking treatment in primary care: baseline results from the ATLAS cohort study. BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, 332. https://doi.org/10.1186/s12891-015-0787-8

Background Patients with back pain radiating to the leg(s) report worse symptoms and poorer recovery than those with back pain alone. Robust evidence regarding their epidemiological profile is lacking from primary care, the setting where most of the...
