    About This Project

    The purpose of the study is to discover how running affects both healthy knee joints and injured knee joints (which are more likely to get knee osteoarthritis). This will be done by comparing knee synovial fluid (a fluid that lubricates the joint) samples from volunteers with an ACL injury and volunteers without one, before and after 30 minutes of running. We hope to better understand the influence of running on knee joint vitality in healthy and previously injured knees.
