Synopsis: Ten randomized controlled trials (645 patients) were included in this meta-analysis to determine the effect of therapeutic ultrasound in the management of knee osteoarthritis when compared to sham or no-intervention. The pooled results of this meta-analysis indicated that therapeutic ultrasound significantly reduced pain and improved function compared to sham treatment. Additionally, few adverse Read More »

Synopsis: 56 patients with pes anserinus tendino-bursitis were randomized to two treatment groups: one group received 3 weeks of kinesiotaping, while the other received 10 days of naproxen 250mg three times daily plus daily physical therapy sessions. The purpose of this study was to compare pain, swelling, and adverse events from pre- to post-treatment. Results demonstrated a Read More »

Synopsis: 5 randomized controlled trials were included in this meta-analysis to compare arthroscopic partial meniscectomy to conservative treatment for the management of nonobstructive meniscal tears. Data from included studies was pooled for physical function outcomes, pain, and activity level over multiple time points up to 24-month follow-up. The results from Read More »

Synopsis: 40 patients with osteoarthritis of the hip were randomized to receive mobilization with movement manual therapy or placebo therapy for the purpose of determining the immediate benefits of mobilization with movement in terms of improvement in hip pain, the internal rotation range of motion, and function. Results demonstrated that Read More »

Synopsis: 70 patients with mechanical low back pain (LBP) were randomized to receive either an 8-week high load lifting exercise program or a low load motor control exercise program. The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of the two aforementioned treatments with regards to pain intensity, disability, and health-related patient quality of life after 12 sessions. After 24-month follow-up, Read More »

Synopsis: 60 patients with a complete Achilles tendon rupture were randomized to either open repair with a Krackow stitch followed by standardized rehabilitation or nonoperative treatment with standardized rehabilitation alone. The purpose of this study was to compare results on the Leppilahti score, calf strength, health-related quality of life and re-rupture rate between groups over an 18-month follow-up. No significant differences Read More »

Synopsis: 83 patients with plantar fasciitis were randomized to one of the three following physiotherapy interventions for the purpose of comparing pain, disability, and balance outcomes after 8 weeks: (1) stretching and exercise of hip and foot muscles, (2) stretching and exercises of foot muscles only, and (3) stretching of foot muscles only. Outcomes of interest included a VAS scale for pain, the Foot and Ankle Outcome Score (FAOS), the Star Excursion Balance test (SEBT). Results demonstrated that Read More »

Synopsis: 32 patients who suffered an anterior cruciate ligament tear were included in this trial and randomized to arthroscopic reconstruction or non-operative care. The objective of this study was to compare functional outcome and the effect of these treatment methods on the incidence and progression of knee osteoarthritis over a 10-year follow-up. The results of Read More »

Synopsis: 59 patients scheduled for total knee arthroplasty were randomized to participate or not participate in a preoperative progressive resistance training program. The purpose of this study was to determine if preoperative resistance training led to significantly increased preoperative and short-term postoperative functional performance and muscle strength. Patients allocated to Read More »
Level 2 RCT

Synopsis: 92 patients over the age of 65 with a subcapital or intertrochanteric hip fracture were randomized to either high-intensity postoperative physiotherapy (PT) sessions in addition to usual PT, or usual PT alone. The purpose of this study was to compare the length of time to discharge readiness, functional performance measures, and patient-reported function at follow-up between groups. The results demonstrated Read More »
