Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is indicated in the correction of arthrosis and post-traumatic knee deformities. Early rehabilitation aims to reduce pain, time and costs of hospitalization, improving the quality of life of the patient and promoting their functional recovery. The objective of this retrospective study is to report the clinical and functional results of a group of patients subjected to Optetrak™ TKA after a period between 6 and 13 years.
Project
Numerous literature reviews published in recent years have focused attention on the effectiveness of manual treatment in reducing frequency, intensity and duration of attacks especially in muscle tensive headaches, migraine and Cervicogenic headache (Chaibi & Russell, 2012, 2014; Falsiroli Maistrello et al., 2018; Fernández-de-Las-Peñas & Cuadrado, 2015; Lenssinck et al., 2004; Luedtke et al., 2015; Posadzki & Ernst, 2011); however, none of the aforementioned reviews performed a quantitative analysis of the patient's quality of life outcomes. The aim of the review is to research and summarize in a meta-analysis the results obtained by the Manual Therapy on the quality of life in patients with headache compared to the usual drug care and which could even more justify the use of non-pharmacological techniques in the treatment of headaches.
Project
To establish the effectiveness of manual TrPs treatment compared to minimal active or no active intervention in reducing frequency, intensity and duration of attacks in primary headaches like Tension Type (TTH), Migraine (MH) and Cluster headache.
