Synopsis: 102 patients with first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint osteoarthritis (OA) were randomized to receive individualized, prefabricated foot orthoses or rocker-sole footwear. The purpose of this study was to compare the orthoses and footwear to determine their effects on pain reduction. Findings indicated no Read More »

Synopsis: 126 patients with patellofemoral joint (PFJ) osteoarthritis (OA) were randomized to either a knee support brace, or a control group without brace support for 6 weeks. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of a flexible knee brace on quadriceps maximum voluntary contraction (MVC) and athrogenous muscle inhibition (AMI) in PFJ OA patients. Patients in the 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: 9 randomized controlled trials (n= 696 patients) of low to moderate quality were included in this systematic review and meta-analysis to determine the effects of isokinetic muscle strengthening on pain, function, and disability in patients with knee osteoarthritis when compared to another isokinetic muscle strengthening treatment, another muscle reinforcement treatment, or no treatment. Data of the following outcomes were available for meta-analysis: standing pain, Lequesne index for function, WOMAC index, and ambulation speed. Findings indicated significant Read More »

Synopsis: 26 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) with a total of 2565 patients were included in this systematic review to determine whether massage therapy is an effective method to treat patients diagnosed with common musculoskeletal complaints, such as shoulder pain, knee osteoarthritis, low back pain, and neck pain. Pooled analysis of a limited number of studies for each complaint demonstrated favourable results for massage therapy compared to no intervention of pain and function associated with shoulder complaints and knee osteoarthritis, while no significant clinically relevant benefits were observed in cases of low back pain and neck pain. Analyses of massage Read More »

Synopsis: 57 patients surgically treated for neglected Achilles tendon rupture were randomized to receive either early physical rehabilitation or conventional postoperative cast immobilization. The purpose of this study was to compare improvements in clinical outcomes (assessed with the Leppilahti scoring system), calf nerve response, and volume regeneration of the ruptured tendon over a two-year follow-up period. Results demonstrated that Read More »
