Investigators in Norway studied 80 women, with a mean age of 61 years who had osteoarthritis of the hands. The patients were randomly assigned to one of two groups. In the first group, patients were instructed to perform exercises [see image attached below], three times weekly. They were asked to perform 10 repetitions of each exercise for the first two weeks, 12 repetitions during the next two weeks, and 15 repetitions for the remainder of the three-month observation period.

At the end of three months the patients who had been assigned to the exercise group had a significant improvement in their functional ability.

Though hand osteoarthritis is probably the most common type of arthritis, where a few treatments are available for this problematic condition. This small but well performed study demonstrates the usually often overlooked treatment modality.

Please help us understand how twitter can be used to improve your health!

Researchers at Cedars-Sinai learn are studying how to harness Twitter to measure health-related quality of life. Dr. Venuturupalli is collaborating with the The Department of Health Services Research at Cedars-Sinai, led by Dr. Brennan Spiegel to conduct research on the use of technology in medicine. Along with the non-profit Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the researchers are trying to learn how Twitter can be used to measure quality of life.

This important study will provide researchers with new insights about how social media platforms, like Twitter, can be used to measure healthcare and ultimately improve patient outcomes. The team is working with the Department of Rheumatology to recruit patients with rheumatic and immune disorders to make sure their voice is heard in this national study. At the end of the study there will also be a raffle to give away a $500 award to one participant. If you are interested, you need to either have a Twitter account or plan to set one up upon starting.
