Effects of a periodized circuit training protocol delivered by telerehabilitation compared to face-to-face method for knee osteoarthritis: a protocol for a non-inferiority randomized controlled trial

This study presents a single-blinded protocol for a non-inferiority randomized controlled trial. One hundred participants diagnosed with knee OA (grades II and III Kellgren and Lawrence system), aged 40 years or more, and BMI

Conclusion: Multimodal intervention including exercise rehabilitation combined with usual medical care is an efficacious therapeutic option to reduce disabilities in older adults with chronic MSKDs. A significant but not clinically important effect was observed for pain. The most beneficial component of the multimodal interventions in terms of education, exercises, or medication remains to be determined.

ConclusionSustained Acoustic Medicine treatment provides tissue heating and tissue recovery, improved patient function and reduction of pain. When patients failed to respond to physical therapy, Sustained Acoustic Medicine proved to be a useful adjunct to facilitate healing and return to work. As a non-invasive and non-narcotic treatment option with an excellent safety profile, Sustained Acoustic Medicine may be considered a good therapeutic option for practitioners.

Conclusions: Combined topical treatment was an effective treatment regimen for pes anserinus bursitis. With the support of daily functional modification, this treatment decreased the healing time and increased patient function during the treatment with better pain control. Level of Evidence: Level II.

CONCLUSION: Based on these explorative analyses it can be concluded that sex and preoperative pain measures may influence the effectiveness of preoperative PNE for some specific outcome measures in people scheduled to undergo TKA.IMPACT: Although further research on this topic is needed, the potential influence of sex and preoperative pain measures on the effectiveness of preoperative PNE should be considered when implementing this intervention in people undergoing TKA.PMID:34459493 | DOI:10.1093/ptj/pzab197

Did you know that antidepressant medications are often prescribed for people without depression? It’s true. Antidepressants are frequently prescribed for chronic pain, especially pain related to nerve disease (called neuropathic pain), chronic low back or neck pain, and certain types of arthritis. In fact, some guidelines for the treatment of chronic low back pain and osteoarthritis (the most common type of arthritis) include antidepressants. One antidepressant in particular, duloxetine (Cymbalta), is FDA-approved for these conditions. Just how antidepressants reduce pain is not well understood. One possibility is th...

CONCLUSIONS: MCE leads to statistically greater pain and disability reductions when compared to strengthening exercises among adults with MSKDs in the short term, but these effects might be clinically important only in conditions that do not involve osteoarthritis. Inclusion of new trials might modify these conclusions. IMPACT: These results suggest that MCE could be prioritized over strengthening exercises for adults with the included non-osteoarthritis MSKDs; however, results are unclear for OA disorders.

Authors: Allaeys C, Arnout N, Van Onsem S, Govaers K, Victor J Abstract Osteoarthritis of the knee causes chronic knee pain, loss of function and disability in the ageing population. When no treatment is applied, a guaranteed onset of symptoms and/or structural damage can be observed in the diseased knee. This work reviewed the different published guidelines, proposing combinations of weight reduction, physical therapy and rehabilitation, self-management education programs and pharmacological treatment. Randomized clinical trials, systematic reviews and guidelines were identified using the databases PubMed and Web ...

This study aimed to, in patients with knee osteoarthritis, (i) examine the convergent validity of mSBT with the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) and (ii) compare the predictive validity of mSBT and HADS with gait speed and knee pain. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort analysis of mSBT, HADS, gait speed, and knee pain outcomes data collected from 119 patients who received outpatient physical therapy. Of these patients who were evaluated at their first (baseline) physical therapy visit, 55 had available data at the Week-16 follow-up visit. RESULTS: mSBT and HADS showed moderately strong pairwi...

CONCLUSION: Individuals with symptomatic radiographic ankle OA had poorer physical outcomes, function, and QoL compared to asymptomatic individuals with and without radiographic ankle OA. This suggests that disability in ankle OA is related to symptoms rather than to radiographic evidence of degeneration. J Orthop Sports Phys Ther 2020;50(12):711-722. doi:10.2519/jospt.2020.9376.
