Arthritic cartilage is primed for mechanical damage. Joint biochemical markers (JBM) could provide insight into the impact of mechanical stimulation on joint tissue turnover in osteoarthritis (OA) of potential use in clinical OA research and practice. However, existing studies of the acute impact of physical activities (PA) on JBM often contain risks of substantial bias. The purpose of this scoping review was to critically review and discuss existing reports of acute joint tissue turnover as reflected in JBM in relation to PA in OA and propose considerations for future research.
