Objective: To compare the effectiveness of aquatic exercises with patient-education in individuals with knee osteoarthritis. Design: Randomized controlled trial with blinded assessor and intention-to-treat analysis. Setting: Aquatic Physiotherapy Centre and Primary Health Care Unit. Subjects: A total of 60 patients, aged 68.3 (SD = 4.8) with clinical symptoms and radiographic grading (Kellgren–Lawrence 1–4) of knee osteoarthritis were included. Interventions: An eight-week treatment protocol of… Expand
Randomized Controlled Trial of Aquatic Cycling for Treatment of Knee Osteoarthritis in Elderly People
TLDR
Aqua-cycling is effective, and can be used alone or combined with other treatments in the management of osteoarthritis. Expand
The effect of Total resistance exercise vs. aquatic training on self-reported knee instability, pain, and stiffness in women with knee osteoarthritis: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Although TRX and aquatic interventions had a similar effect on the patients’ balance, pain and KI, TRX had more effect on WOMAC (stiffness) , quadriceps strength, and knee flexion ROM than aquatic exercises. Expand
Patient education improves pain and function in people with knee osteoarthritis with better effects when combined with exercise therapy: a systematic review.
TLDR
Although patient education produced statistically superior short-term pain and function outcomes compared with usual care, differences were small and may not be clinically important and patient education should not be provided as a standalone treatment and should be combined with exercise therapy. Expand
Is aquatic exercise more effective than land-based exercise for knee osteoarthritis?
TLDR
AQE is comparable to LBE for treating knee OA, and showed a mild effect for elevating activities of daily living and a high effect for improving sports and recreational activities. Expand
The Role of Physical Activity as Conservative Treatment for Hip and Knee Osteoarthritis in Older People: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Active exercise and sport are effective to improve pain and physical function in elderly people with osteoarthritis, Nevertheless, further studies are required to validate the use of land-based exercise, aquatic exercise, or sport to treat the symptoms of older adults that suffer from knee and hip osteOarthritis.

A pilot study of aquatic prehabilitation in adults with knee osteoarthritis undergoing total knee arthroplasty – short term outcome
TLDR
4–8 weeks of aquatic exercise intervention resulted in improved functional outcomes as well as improved depression and cognition in elderly patients undergoing TKA. Expand
Effect of Osteoarthritis of Knee Rehabilitation on Pain & Function on Quality of Life
Purpose: Patients with knee osteoarthritis tend to increase their physical limitations, pain and functional restriction with disease progression. Thus, these individuals suffer from progressiveExpand
Osteoarthritis Year in Review 2019: Rehabilitation and Outcomes.
TLDR
Future work is necessary to identify the ideal exercise frequency and intensity and lifestyle diet intervention parameters and improved adherence to reporting guidelines in future work will greatly enhance the OA rehabilitation field. Expand
Aquatic Exercise for Patients with Osteoarthritis
TLDR
A physical therapist and an occupational therapist have both been exposed to many interventions supported in the literature to reduce pain and improve mobility in individuals with OA, including pharmacological, non-pharmacological, and surgical interventions. Expand

A randomized controlled trial of aquatic and land-based exercise in patients with knee osteoarthritis.
TLDR
Only land-based exercise showed some improvement in pain and muscle strength compared with the control group, while no clinical benefits were detectable after aquatic exercise compared withThe control group; however, aquatic exercise has significantly less adverse effects compared with a land- based programme. Expand
The effect of a group education programme on pain and function through knowledge acquisition and home-based exercise among patients with knee osteoarthritis: a parallel randomised single-blind clinical trial.
TLDR
A simple group education programme for patients with knee osteoarthritis is associated with improved functional abilities and pain reduction and further study is required to determine if this positive effect can be maintained over a longer period. Expand
A randomized controlled trial to investigate the effects of water-based exercise to improve falls risk and physical function in older adults with lower-extremity osteoarthritis.
TLDR
Water-based exercise did not reduce falls risk in this population with a control group that attended a time-dose-equivalent seated community-based activity, and whether gaining computer skills and going out into the community twice weekly is adequate stimulus to reduce fallsrisk in people with OA requires further investigation.

TLDR
Improvements compared with a control group with regard to pain, quality of life and function for participants in the OAK program are recorded on the basis of WOMAC and SF-36 measures taken 8 weeks and 6 months from baseline. Expand
Manual for guided home exercises for osteoarthritis of the knee.
TLDR
This study shows that this guidance can be attained at home with the use of a proper manual for patients with osteoarthritis of the knee in relation to pain, range of movement, muscle strength and function, active goniometry, manual strength test and function. Expand
Comparative Effects of 2 Aqua Exercise Programs on Physical Function, Balance, and Perceived Quality of Life in Older Adults With Osteoarthritis
TLDR
Aqua fitness may offer a number of positive functional and psychosocial benefits for older adults with OA, such as a reduced fear of falling and increased ability to perform everyday tasks. Expand
Aquatic exercise for the treatment of knee and hip osteoarthritis.
TLDR
Aquatic exercise appears to have some beneficial short-term effects for patients with hip and/or knee OA while no long- term effects have been documented, and one may consider using aquatic exercise as the first part of a longer exercise programme for osteoarthritis patients. Expand
