  The most common symptoms associated with limb length discrepancy are low back pain, which usually appears on the longer side first.

It is currently unknown if there are important differences in the effects of different manual physical therapy techniques for patients with knee OA and there are virtually no studies comparing manual physical therapy and electrotherapy modalities. The aim of the study was to compare long-term results between three treatment groups (mobilization.

Total knee replacement (TKR) is one of the most common elective surgical procedures, w operations performed in the NHS during ().The procedure is performed to provide pain relief and restore physical functioning; it can also improve health-related quality of life and enable some people to return to social, leisure, and sporting activities (2,3).Cited by: A repeated measures ANOVA and a post hoc Tukey test were used to compare the three methods of assessing strength and imbalance ratios of the knee.

Absolute strength values were significantly different according to gender and mode of testing. Bilateral strength imbalance ratios for knee flexion were significantly lower for the Nautilus leg curl Cited by:   The WOMAC pain scale was used to assess severity of pain experienced in the replaced knee when performing five different activities.

To aid interpretation and comparison as per consensus in the orthopaedic literature this was transformed into a 0– scale with 0 indicating extreme pain and indicating no p 20, Cited by: Phase 2: Baseline clinical assessment study of the knee (CAS(K)) Respondents to the Regional Pain Survey questionnaire who report experiencing pain in or around the knee within the last 12 months and who provide written consent to further contact will then be sent a letter of invitation and a Patient Information Sheet outlining the CAS(K) and the details of reimbursement for their travel to.

The knee is the largest joint in the body and is also the most commonly injured joint. As a result there are many special tests that have been developed to help diagnose the source of knee pain, stability and function.

The following is a list of some of the many special tests that have been developed for the knee. Pain is the most common indication for joint replacement surgery (JRS) in an osteoarthritis (OA) population ().The patient-reported pain experience is affected by physiological (), psychological (depression and catastrophizing) (3,4) and demographic factors (age, sex and comorbidity) (5,6), which provide great variation in how individuals perceive pain.

This article – the first of a three-part series on managing pain in children – covers pain assessment. It identifies best practice with reference to current guidelines, outlines the strategies that can be used to assess children’s pain, and describes pain assessment tools for different ages and cognitive abilities.
