Abstract

Background: Exercise and other rehabilitation strategies are not frequently prescribed, although they are recommended by all published guidelines.1 There is limited access and affordability to multiple pharmacological and surgical interventions for relief, which everybody can not manage.
Objectives: Establishing physiotherapy intervention, a preferable treatment.
Methodology: Reviewing 11 articles meeting inclusion criteria and aggregating their results.
Results: While studying comparison of preferred treatments among pharmacological and non pharmacological for pain of knee osteoarthritis, the results show 70% confidence level for later resulted that evidence based care for adults with knee pain, delivered by primary care physiotherapists and pharmacists, resulted in short term improvements in health outcomes, reduced use of ANSAID and high patient satisfaction,2 than with pharmacists and orthopedic surgeons alone. Regarding physiotherapy techniques exercise regimen and postural guidance seem to give 80 – 90% batter results than modalities.
Conclusions: Ways to promote high quality evidence that physiotherapy practice should be identified and evaluated, also therapeutic exercises show better results than modalities managing O.A knee.
