Knee Osteoarthritis – Both Band Resistance Training and “Home-based Kinesthesia, Balance and Agility” (KBA) Training Help Knee Pains But Combo No Better Than Either

  • Single-blind, block randomized placebo controlled clinical trial with four interventions
  • Included:

Controls

Reistance training:

“RT participants were trained to use Thera-Band ® non-latex elastic resistance bands (The Hygenic Corporation, Akron, OH, USA) to perform a single 15-repetitionset of lower extremity exercises with each leg as detailed

Kinesthesia, balance & agility exercise training”

results:

Comment – Groups were not very equal for pain levels prior so have no idea where control would actually be.  Looks to me better to stick to resistance training but if getting married soon, might want to use the “wedding march” exercises… maillot de foot pas cher maillot de foot pas cher
