Physical therapy interventions for knee pain secondary to osteoarthritis

Physical therapy

A review funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, USA and conducted by Dr. Wang and his colleagues from the Center for International Rehabilitation Research Buffalo USA looks at the implications for physical therapy interventions for knee pain secondary to osteoarthritis

The group showed that strengthening, and proprioception exercise improved knee osteoarthritis outcomes.
The authors stated that therapeutic exercise programmes should focus on increasing adherence rather than increasing the amount or intensity of exercise.
The LegTutor is used together with dedicated rehabilitation software in order to motivate the patient to comply with the dose of exercise practice recommended by the physical therapist.
