We are continuing the release this week of the fall 2015 registry data, here’s the 2015 Pain and Function Data for Regenexx SD Knee Patients.
This means that the Numeric Pain Scale (NPS 1-10) was used as well as a LEFS (Lower Extremity Functional Scale) questionnaire. These are both research validated ways to collect improvement data on knee arthritis patients.
As always, this is not a drug style randomized controlled trial, but instead registry data collected as patients were being treated. You can see that the 1-10 knee pain goes down as time goes on in the graph in the upper right hand corner. You can also see that function goes up as time goes on in the graph in the lower right hand corner. As always, this data is collected throughout the Regenexx network of physicians, so this was collected from many sites across the U.S.
The upshot? Intermittently this week I’ll continue to release fall 2015 data to update our patient infographics, so stay tuned! Click on the image above to see a higher res PDF.
