A Comparative Study of Treatment Interventions for Patellar Tendinopathy: A Randomized Controlled Trial (2021)

Published by <p>A randomized controlled trial design was chosen to evaluate the effectiveness of dry needling with eccentric exercise, dry needling with percutaneous electrolysis (PNE) and eccentric exercise, and placebo needling with eccentric exercise for patellar tendinopathy. The study was blinded to assessors and subjects. Subjects were people aged 18-45 years old with anterior knee pain located […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

Effectiveness of Progressive Tendon-Loading Exercise Therapy in Patients with Patellar Tendinopathy: A Randomised Clinical Trial (2020)

Published by <p>The presently examined study sought to determine if progressive tendon loading exercise (PTLE) or eccentric exercise therapy (EET) was superior for improving outcomes for people with patellar tendinopathy. Included subjects were 18 to 35 years old with a history of patellar tendon pain, regular participation in sports, structural changes in the patellar tendon assessed by […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

A Controlled Trial of Weight-Bearing Versus Non-Weight Bearing Exercises for Patellofemoral Pain (2007)

Published by <p>Forty-five individuals with patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) between the ages of 18-35 were selected for the study. These 45 individuals were divided into 3 equal groups: non-weight-bearing single-joint exercise (SJNWBE), weight-bearing multiple-joint exercise (MJWBE), and a non-exercise control group. Each subject underwent isometric knee extension strength testing, assessed their pain with isometric testing, assessed their […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

Does Foot Mobility Affect the Outcome in the Management of Patellofemoral Pain with Foot Orthoses Versus Hip Exercises? A Randomised Clinical Trial (2020)

Published by <p>The authors sought to determine if greater midfoot width mobility is associated with better outcomes after treatment with foot orthoses compared to hip exercise, and to compare the treatment effectiveness of foot orthoses compared to hip exercise at 12 weeks regardless of midfoot mobility status. Participants were volunteers aged 18-40 with insidious onset of peri-patellar […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

Can Even Experienced Orthopaedic Surgeons Predict Who Will Benefit From Surgery When Patients Present with Degenerative Meniscal Tears? A Survey of 194 Orthopaedic Surgeons Who Made 3880 Predictions (2019)

Published by <p>Determining which people may benefit more with surgery compared to exercise therapy could theoretically improve outcomes. Other trials have found partial meniscectomy (APM) to be no better than conservative management or sham surgery for people with meniscus tears on average, so surgeons often decide whether patients should have surgery or conservative treatment based on factors […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

The Effect of NMES on Functional Status and Quality of Life After Knee Arthroplasty (2015)

Published by <p>Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is a commonly used surgical intervention to primarily address the consequences of osteoarthritis. While this procedure provides significant benefits in terms of decreased pain and improved function, patients are often left with post- operative weakness of the quadriceps. This weakness is not solely a result of the procedure; even prior to […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

The Therapeutic Role of Motor Imagery During the Acute Phase After Total Knee Arthroplasty: A Pilot Study (2019)

Published by <p>The aim of this study was to measure physical and functional outcomes during the acute postoperative recovery in patients who underwent total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Motor imagery has been shown to decrease pain and promote functional recovery after both neurological and peripheral injuries. Yet, whether motor imagery can be included as an adjunct effective method […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>
