22. Physical Therapy versus Glucocorticoid Injection for Osteoarthritis of the Knee. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Physical Therapy versus Glucocorticoid Injection for Osteoarthritis of the Knee. Both physical therapy and intraarticular injections of glucocorticoids have been shown to confer clinical benefit with respect to osteoarthritis of the knee. Whether the short-term and long-term effectiveness for relieving pain and improving physical function differ between these two therapies is uncertain.We conducted a randomized trial to compare physical therapy with glucocorticoid injection in the primary care (...) setting in the U.S. Military Health System. Patients with osteoarthritis in one or both knees were randomly assigned in a 1:1 ratio to receive a glucocorticoid injection or to undergo physical therapy. The primary outcome was the total score on the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) at 1 year (scores range from 0 to 240, with higher scores indicating worse pain, function, and stiffness). The secondary outcomes were the time needed to complete the Alternate Step Test

24. Physical therapies for postural abnormalities in people with cystic fibrosis. (Abstract)

Physical therapies for postural abnormalities in people with cystic fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common life-threatening, inherited disease in white populations which causes several dysfunctions, including postural abnormalities. Physical therapy may help in some consequences of these postural abnormalities, such as pain, trunk deformity and quality of life.To determine the effects of a range of physical therapies for managing postural abnormalities in people with cystic fibrosis (...) controlled trials examining any modality of physical therapy considered relevant for treating postural disorders compared with each other, no physical therapy, sham treatment or usual care in people with CF (of any age or disease severity).Two review authors independently selected eligible trials, assessed the risk of bias in each trial and extracted the data. We contacted trial authors to obtain missing or additional information. We assessed the quality of the evidence using the GRADE criteria.Two
