Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a prevalent chronic joint disease causing pain and disability. Physiotherapy, which encompasses a number of modalities, is a non‐invasive treatment option in the management of OA. This review summarizes the evidence for commonly used physiotherapy interventions. There is strong evidence to show short‐term beneficial effects of exercise on pain and function, although the type of exercise does not seem to influence treatment outcome. Delivery modes, including… Expand
Effectiveness of Kinesio Taping in the Management of Knee Osteoarthritis
TLDR
KT plus conventional exercise is more effective than conventional exercise alone in terms of relieving pain, reducing stiffness and improving function in patients with OA knee. Expand
Knee Manual Therapy for Aging and Older Adults
TLDR
Increasing evidence suggests that manual therapy can have significant hypoalgesic and pain-inhibitory effects, which in turn may play a role in reducing disability and improving function in this population of patients with knee osteoarthritis. Expand
Effectiveness of Mobilization with Movement on the Management of Knee Osteoarthritis: A Systematic Review of Randomized Controlled Trials
TLDR
This systematic review demonstrated that MWM was effective to improve pain, range of motion, and functional activities in subjects with knee osteoarthritis. Expand
The Effects of Exercise and Kinesio Tape on Physical Limitations in Patients with Knee Osteoarthritis
TLDR
It is asserted that therapeutic knee kinesio taping in association with a moderate adapted training is an effective method for the management of pain and disability limitations in patients with knee osteoarthritis. Expand
Current state of unloading braces for knee osteoarthritis
TLDR
Current biomechanical evidence suggests that unloading of the affected knee compartment does not significantly hinder disease progression, and overall improvements in parameters such as pain, instability, and quality of life are revealed. Expand
Taping for knee osteoarthritis.
TLDR
Taping for knee osteoarthritis has National Health and Medical Research Council Level I evidence of efficacy for pain relief and is associated with negligible adverse effects that generally include minor skin irritation. Expand
Does the addition of hip strengthening exercises improve outcomes following total knee arthroplasty? A study protocol for a randomized trial
TLDR
This trial is to compare the effects of targeted hip abductor strengthening to those of traditional care in a TKA rehabilitation program on muscle strength, patient reported outcomes and functional performance measures to determine whether targeted hip strengthening exercises should be included in traditional rehabilitation programs to improve the outcomes following total knee arthroplasty. Expand
Immediate and short-term effects of Mulligan's mobilization with movement on knee pain and disability associated with knee osteoarthritis – A prospective case series
TLDR
MWM was associated with immediate pain relief and improved knee function, suggesting its potential as a component of early management of knee OA. Expand

TLDR
It is likely that a combination of pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments is most effective in treating patients with knee osteoarthritis. Expand

The effect of a manual therapy knee protocol on osteoarthritic knee pain: a randomised controlled trial.
TLDR
A short-term manual therapy knee protocol significantly reduced pain suffered by participants with osteoarthritic knee pain and resulted in improvements in self-reported knee function immediately after the end of the 2 week treatment period. Expand
Efficacy of strengthening exercises for osteoarthritis (Part I): A meta-analysis
TLDR
Strengthening exercises alone have some effects on improving pain and functional outcomes in clients with OA, but in order to maximise the effectiveness of strengthening exercise for these clients, it is necessary to combine strengthening exercises with a more complete exercise programme including ROM, stretching, functional balance and aerobic exercises. Expand
Effect of length on laterally-wedged insoles in knee osteoarthritis.
TLDR
The aim of this laboratory study was to compare the effect of a full-length, laterally-wedged insole on the adduction moment with that of a rearfoot wedge in patients with medial knee OA. Expand
Long-term clinical benefits and costs of an integrated rehabilitation programme compared with outpatient physiotherapy for chronic knee pain.
TLDR
ESAPE-knee pain can be delivered as a community-based integrated rehabilitation programme for people with chronic knee pain and produced sustained physical and psychosocial benefits, but ESCAPE- knee pain cost less and was more cost-effective. Expand
Efficacy of knee tape in the management of osteoarthritis of the knee: blinded randomised controlled trial
TLDR
Therapeutic knee taping is an efficacious treatment for the management of pain and disability in patients with knee osteoarthritis and benefits were maintained three weeks after stopping treatment. 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
Quadriceps Weakness and Osteoarthritis of the Knee
TLDR
The relation among lower-extremity muscle strength, lower-Extremity lean tissue mass, and osteoarthritis of the knee in men and women 65 years of age and older is studied. Expand
Brace treatment for osteoarthritis of the knee: a prospective randomized multi-centre trial.
TLDR
The results indicate that a brace intended to reduce load shows small effects in patients with unicompartmental OA, however, many patients do not adhere in the long run to this kind of conservative treatment. Expand
Does knee malalignment mediate the effects of quadriceps strengthening on knee adduction moment, pain, and function in medial knee osteoarthritis? A randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Knee alignment represents a local mechanical factor that can mediate symptomatic outcome from exercise interventions in knee OA and the benefits of quadriceps strengthening on pain were more evident in those with more neutral alignment. Expand
The initial effects of knee joint mobilization on osteoarthritic hyperalgesia.
TLDR
New experimental evidence is provided that accessory mobilization of an osteoarthritic knee joint immediately produces both local and widespread hypoalgesic effects and may therefore be an effective means of reducing pain in this population. Expand
