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 »
Level 1 Meta Analysis

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: 94 patients with chronic nonspecific neck pain were randomized to physical therapy-based treatments using global postural re-education (GPR) or manual therapy. The purpose of this trial was to determine if the global postural re-education therapy could reduce pain and disability in comparison to manual therapy when evaluated over a 6-month follow-up. Results demonstrated that Read More »

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 »
Level 2 RCT

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: 126 patients who had undergone total hip arthroplasty or hip resurfacing and were deemed appropriate cases for same-day mobilization were randomized to mobilization in the afternoon following surgery (POD 0 group), or on the first postoperative day (POD 1 group). The purpose of this study was to compare time to discharge readiness and overall length of hospital stay between groups. The time to Read More »

Synopsis: 80 osteoarthritic patients scheduled to undergo total hip arthroplasty were randomized to preoperative care consisting of either a 10-week explosive-type resistive training program or usual care. The objective of this trial was to determine if this type of preoperative exercise program was feasible and effective. The findings of Read More »
Level 2 RCT

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 »
