OBJECTIVE To establish whether proprioception and varus-valgus laxity moderate the association between muscle strength and activity limitations in patients with early symptomatic knee osteoarthritis. DESIGN A cross-sectional study. SUBJECTS A sample of 151 participants with early symptomatic knee osteoarthritis from the Cohort Hip and Cohort Knee study.(More)
The aim of the study was to examine the relationship between comorbidities and pain, physical function and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) after total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA). A cross-sectional retrospective survey was conducted including 19 specific comorbidities, administered in patients who underwent THA or TKA in(More)
OBJECTIVE To test whether knee stabilization therapy, prior to strength/functional training, may have added value in reducing activity limitations only in patients with knee osteoarthritis who have knee instability and (i) low upper leg muscle strength, (ii) impaired knee proprioception, (iii) high knee laxity, or (iv) frequent episodes of knee instability.(More)
A recently developed computerized Animated Activity Questionnaire (AAQ) uses video animations to measure limitations in basic daily activities in patients with hip or knee osteoarthritis (OA). The AAQ is less time and money consuming than performance-based tests and less burdensome for patients. Compared to patient-reported outcome measurements, the AAQ is(More)
BACKGROUND Exercise therapy is generally recommended for patients with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. Comorbidity, which is highly prevalent in OA, may interfere with exercise therapy. To date, there is no evidence-based protocol for the treatment of patients with knee OA and comorbidity. Special protocols adapted to the comorbidity may facilitate the(More)
Total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA) bring relief of pain and functional disability to patients with end-stage osteoarthritis, and however, the literature on their impact on patients' level of physical activity (PA) is scarce. Cross-sectional study in patients who underwent THA/TKA surgery in the preceding 6-22 months and a random(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effectiveness of two educational courses aiming to improve adherence to recommendations in a Dutch physiotherapy practice guideline for hip and knee OA. METHODS Physiotherapists (PTs) from three regions in The Netherlands were invited to participate in a study comparing an interactive workshop (IW) with conventional education(More)
