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.
