The effect of ginger therapy on the physical and psychological wellbeing/functioning of adults with osteoarthritis: a pilot study

This study will evaluate the feasibility of the recently developed ginger patch in preparation for a random controlled trial. It will include a pilot study of 3 weeks, the primary intervention and a prospective cohort study for a further 24 weeks, the secondary intervention. The aim of this study is to test methods and procedures for assessing the efficacy of ginger therapy using manufactured ginger patches and ginger compresses for people with osteoarthritis symptoms.
