Comparison of clinic-and home-based rehabilitation programs after total knee arthroplasty.

After primary total knee arthroplasty, patients who completed a home exercise program (home-based rehabilitation) performed similarly to patients who completed regular outpatient clinic sessions in addition to the home exercises (clinic-based rehabilitation).  Read More

Can Exercise Therapy Improve the Outcome of Microdiscectomy?

Exercise has been shown to improve pain and disability in patients with nonspecific chronic low back pain.  Read More

Effectiveness of a home-based exercise therapy and walking program on osteoarthritis of the knee.

As a result, we conclude that a simple home-based exercise therapy and a regular walking program are effective in treating the symptoms of OA.  Read More

Evaluation of a specific home exercise program for low back pain.

Thus clinicians should prescribe exercise programs based on individual muscular deficits rather than most commonly prescribed exercise programs.  Read More

A controlled trial of hospital versus home-based exercise in cardiac patients.

This study suggests that low-risk CABG surgery patients may be served as well or better with a monitored, home-based exercise program than with an institution-based program.   Read More

Home based exercise programme for knee pain and knee osteoarthritis: randomised controlled trial.

A simple home based exercise programme can significantly reduce knee pain.   Read More

Home based exercise therapy for older patients with knee osteoarthritis: a randomized clinical trial.

Addition of a progressive exercise program to nonsteroidal antiinflammatory therapy in patients with knee OA can improve measures of activity and activity related pain more than medication alone.   Read More

Inpatient compared with home-based rehabilitation following primary unilateral total hip or knee replacement: a randomized controlled trial.

Despite concerns about early hospital discharge, there was no difference in pain, functional outcomes, or patient satisfaction between the group that received home-based rehabilitation and the group that had inpatient rehabilitation. On the basis of our findings, we recommend the use of a home-based rehabilitation protocol following elective primary total hip or knee replacement as it is the more cost-effective strategy.  Read More

Comparison of Home Versus Physical Therapy–Supervised Rehabilitation Programs After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction.

A structured, minimally supervised rehabilitation program was more effective in achieving acceptable knee range of motion in the first 3 months after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction than a standard physical therapy–based program.   Read More

Physical Therapy for Acute Low Back Pain: Associations With Subsequent Healthcare Costs

Adherence to the recommendation for active care was associated with better clinical outcomes and decreased subsequent use of prescription medication, MRI, and injections. Improving adherence to this recommendation may present an opportunity to improve the cost-effectiveness of care for acute LBP.  Read More

Does it Matter Which Exercise?: A Randomized Control Trial of Exercise for Low Back Pain

Regardless of subjects’ direction of preference, the response to contrasting exercise prescriptions was significantly different: exercises matching subjects’ DP significantly and rapidly decreased pain and medication use and improved in all other outcomes.   Read More

The efficacy of home based progressive strength training in older adults with knee osteoarthritis: a randomized controlled trial.

High intensity, home based strength training can produce substantial improvements in strength, pain, physical function and quality of life in patients with knee OA.   Read More
