This study sought to determine if foot and/or ankle symptoms, such as tendonitis, increase the risk of establishing knee symptoms and knee osteoarthritis.

The results demonstrated that, in individuals already at-risk of knee osteoarthritis, the presence of foot/ankle symptoms increased the risk of developing knee symptoms and knee osteoarthritis in the opposite leg to the symptoms.
