This study aims to compare the efficacy between Boonme stick exercise and quadriceps strengthening exercise in knee osteoarthritis.Patients diagnosed as knee osteoarthritis using Altman criteria will be randomized into 2 groups using simple random technique. Patients will be instructed and trained for both quadriceps or Boonme stick exercise by one-trained physical therapist. All patients will be treated with behavioral modification, NSAIDs and analgesic drugs and regularly follow-up . Assessment included visual analogue scale, exercise compliance, WOMAC and patient satisfaction were done by an assessor in a blinded fashion.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

The purpose of this project is to establish evidence to support specific, targeted exercise and rehabilitation recommendations for people over 50 with osteoarthritis of the knee.
Earlier research has shown that exercising while receiving manual therapy improves function and reduces pain in people with knee osteoarthritis. However, very little is known about the me...
This trial will test if walking or bicycling exercise is effective as a non-surgical treatment option for patients with knee osteoarthritis.
This study investigates the effects of unloader knee brace, biomechanical footwear device and exercise therapy on pain, physical function and quality of life in patients with knee osteoart...
The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of neuromuscular exercise and analgesic use on knee joint load, in patients with mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis (OA). It is expec...
Home-based exercise therapy is effective in reducing pain and improving function in adults with osteoarthritis of the knee.
To examine the reporting completeness of exercise-based interventions for knee osteoarthritis (OA) in studies that forms the basis of current clinical guidelines, and examine if the clinical benefit (...
Few studies have investigated the dry needling (DN) approach on knee osteoarthritis (KO) patients. The study's aim was to evaluate the short-term efficacy of adding DN to a therapeutic exercise protoc...
Knee osteoarthritis is a major contributor to the global burden of disease. There is a need of reducing knee joint load and to improve balance and physical function among knee osteoarthritis patients.
"I was really pleasantly surprised": first-hand experience with telephone-delivered exercise therapy shifts physiotherapists' perceptions of such a service for knee osteoarthritis. A qualitative study.
To explore physiotherapists' perceptions before and after delivering exercise therapy via telephone for knee osteoarthritis.
Noninflammatory degenerative disease of the knee joint consisting of three large categories: conditions that block normal synchronous movement, conditions that produce abnormal pathways of motion, and conditions that cause stress concentration resulting in changes to articular cartilage. (Crenshaw, Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics, 8th ed, p2019)
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
An instrument used to assess the results of rehabilitation from knee injuries, especially those requiring ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT RECONSTRUCTION. It measures recovery of knee joint function based on ACTIVITIES OF DAILY LIVING.
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
Injuries to the knee or the knee joint.
Arthritis is by definition the inflammation of one or more joints, characterized by swelling, pain, warmth, redness and diminished range of joint movement (Oxford Medical Dictionary). There are many different types; Noninflammatory; Osteoarthritis, N...
