Significant improvement in VAS, SF-36, WOMAC score, hyperemia, and thickness of suprapatellar recess synovium from baseline was seen up to 6 months after intra-articular HA injection.
All three trials reported reductions in pain and stiffness, as well as improvements to function and the overall WOMAC score. All three studies showed improvements with Pycnogenol compared to placebo, but the third study was the most significant in results with scores for pain, stiffness and physical function dropping by nearly 50%.
A total WOMAC score is calculated by adding together the items for all three subscales, giving a maximum total mark of 2400.

The term “clinically controlled” refers to a WOMAC score ≥75%; “significantly improved” indicates a WOMAC score ≥50%, but <75%; “improved” suggests a WOMAC score ≥25%, but <50%; and “ineffective” referred to a WOMAC score <25%.

The WOMAC score for osteoarthritis hip was used to assess the functional results, the WOMAC score 80 (Range: 37-100).
At baseline, the average WOMAC score was 100.8--but after two years, participants receiving exercise therapy in addition to their usual care improved by 31.7 WOMAC points compared to usual care alone.
The regression model revealed that the variable exhibiting the most significant effect of improvement on KSS and WOMAC score was balanced joint state (P = 0.001; P = 0.014).
