Individualized Comprehensive Rehabilitation Program in Chronic Knee Osteoarthritis

2019-10-29 14:36:36 | BioPortfolio


Knee osteoarthritis is a common condition characterized by pain and functional disability in older people. Prevalence increases with age and is more frequent in older women. The aim of this study was to assess the effects of an 8-weeks individualized comprehensive rehabilitation program with elastic bands on pain and functional disability in chronic knee osteoarthritis.


The main symptoms of knee osteoarthritis are pain and functional disability. These symptoms are caused by a progressive loss and deterioration of articular cartilage with reactive new bone formation at the joint's surface and margins involving articular cartilage, soft tissues, and bone damage. Many treatment programs have been developed, including medication with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, physical modalities, and therapeutic exercises. It is hypothesized that an individualized comprehensive rehabilitation program uring 8 weeks would benefit women with knee osteoarthritis.
