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: 52 recreational athletes with chronic Achilles tendinopathy symptoms, on an eccentric exercise (EE) regimen, were randomized to receive an 8 week treatment with either a low-level laser therapy (LLLT) or a placebo LLLT. LLLT use in this study has been found to accelerate the clinical recovery in chronic Achilles tendinopathy when added to the EE regimen. The LLLT treatment Read More »

Synopsis: Twenty randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were included in a meta-analysis and systematic review comparing pain, treatment-emergent adverse events, and function between Hylan G-F 20 injections and low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid (LMWHA) injections for knee osteoarthritis. No significant differences between products were observed in pain overall or the incidence of treatment-emergent related adverse events. When subgrouped based 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: Nine studies (6 randomized controlled trials and 3 prospective comparative studies) were selected to examine the effects of leukocyte-poor platelet rich plasma and leukocyte-rich platelet rich plasma in knee osteoarthritis treatment. Due to the presence of only one direct comparison between LP-PRP and LR-PRP at the time of the study, studies which compared either to hyaluronic or placebo were included, and network meta-analysis was undertaken. Primary outcome was Read More »

Synopsis: 68 patients scheduled for arthroscopic debridement and microfracture for osteochondral defects (OCD) of the talus were randomized to postoperative rehabilitation with or without the use of pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy. The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that the use of PEMF therapy postoperatively in these patients would increase the rate of return to sport and also reduce the time to return to sport. Results demonstrated no Read More »

Synopsis: A total of 15 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were included in this systematic review to determine the efficacy and safety of different forms of acupuncture in the management of musculoskeletal disorders. Ten trials reported on musculoskeletal disorders of the upper extremities: three on carpal tunnel syndrome; two on lateral epicondylitis; four on shoulder pain; and one on general upper extremity pain. Five trials reported Read More »

Synopsis: Seven randomized controlled trials were included in this systematic review and meta-analysis to compare functional outcome measures between patient-specific instrumentation and conventional instrumentation in total knee arthroplasty. Pooled outcomes included the Knee Society Knee Score, Knee Society Functional Score, the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) score, the Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS), and visual analog scale (VAS) scores. Results demonstrated no Read More »
