Synopsis: 90 patients with chronic ankle instability were randomized to either 3 weeks of joint mobilization treatment, 3 weeks of sham mobilization treatment, or no intervention.Patients were assessed following the completion of one session, at the completion of the 3-week treatment phases, and at 6-month follow-up after the completion of treatment for range of motion in dorsiflexion, the Cumberland Ankle Instability Tool, and the Star Excursion Balance Test in the anterior, posteromedial, and posterolateral directions.Results significantly favoured the mobilization group compared to both sham and control groups after 3 weeks and at 6-month follow-up outcome for all measures. Additional, range of... Read More »

Synopsis: 30 patients with chronic ankle instability were randomized to either a session of Maitland grade III mobilizations or to no intervention.Patients were assessed pre- and post-test for ankle range of motion in dorsiflexion, outcome on the Star Excursion Balance Test, spinal reflex excitability of the fibularis longus and soleus muscles, and corticospinal excitability of the fibularis longus and soleus muscles. Results demonstrated a... Read More »

Synopsis: 82 patients, 40-80 years of age, with knee osteoarthritis were randomized to treatment with either hyaluronic acid injections or a physical therapy program.Patients allocated to hyaluronic acid injections were administered either high-molecular-weight HA (Hylan G-F20) or low-molecular-weight HA (Orthovisc). Results demonstrated significant... Read More »

Synopsis: 284 patients with a single, acute osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture were randomized to 12 weeks use of either a rigid or soft thoracolumbosacral orthosis.Patients were assessed for radiographical and clinical outcome over 48-week follow-up.The only significant difference between groups observed was in the primary outcome measure at 12 weeks; the rigid orthosis group demonstrated a significantly lower compression of the injured vertebral body, expressed as a ratio between the anterior and posterior sections of the vertebral body. The primary outcome... Read More »

Synopsis: 76 patients with chronic ankle instability were randomized to one of four groups: joint mobilization, plantar massage, calf stretching, or control intervention with no treatment.Each group received 6 sessions over a 2-week treatment phase.Patients were assessed after 1 session and 6 sessions for data during single-leg stance on a force plate, including center-of-pressure distribution, velocity of center-of-pressure, and time-to-boundary minima. While significant differences... Read More »

Synopsis: 171 elderly patients with knee osteoarthritis were randomized to receive home-based exercise therapy alongside health education, or health education only.The primary outcomes of interest were the WOMAC pain and stiffness scores.Secondary outcomes included the five times sit to stand test (FTSST), the timed up and go test, the 6-minute walking test (6MWT), and the arthritis impact measurement scales 2 - short form (AIMS2-SF) body, symptom, emotional, society and total scores.Follow up was performed 12 weeks after the initiation of treatment. The results of... Read More »

Synopsis: 110 patients scheduled for a primary unilateral total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were randomized to receive an immediate or delayed physiotherapy protocol following surgery.Outcomes of interest included the Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS), VR-12 scores, visual analog scale (VAS) pain scores, range of motion, number of therapy visits, the Timed Up and Go (TUG) test, and rate of manipulation.Follow up was performed at 6 weeks and 6 months. Results from the... Read More »

Synopsis: 50 patients scheduled for total knee arthroplasty were randomized to either an 8-week supervised, preoperative exercise program of strength and balance training, or to usual care.Patients were assessed for postural control on the Romberg test prior to surgery after the completion of preoperative intervention, and at 1 and 3 months postoperatively. Overall, center-of-pressure area... Read More »

Synopsis: 50 patients who underwent an open carpal tunnel release surgical procedure for the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome were randomized to receive 4 weeks of a touchscreen-based exercise therapy delivered on the ReHand tablet application, or a paper-delivered home-based exercise therapy.Treatment programs were performed at least 5 times per week.The primary outcome of interest was functional ability, measured with the QuickDASH questionnaire.Secondary outcomes included pain (measured on a Visual Analog Scale), dexterity (measured with the nine hole peg test) and grip strength.Results from the study revealed a significantly larger improvements in QuickDASH score in the tablet app group compared to the control group. However, there were... Read More »

Synopsis: 652 male footballers from 2nd or 3rd tier Norwegian teams were randomized to receive or not receive the Copenhagen adductor strengthening program in addition to regular pre-season and regular season training.The primary outcome of interest was the prevalence of groin injury.The secondary outcome of interest was the prevalence of substantial groin injury.Intervention was performed during pre-season 2-3 times per week, and during the regular season once per week.Follow up was performed weekly for the duration of the 28 week season.The results from this study revealed significantly lower odds of groin injury in the adductor strengthening group compared to the control group. There was, however,... Read More »
