  • In the adult population undergoing surgical arthroscopic treatment for knee articular chondral defect, is the use of CPM (continuous passive motion) effective in reducing pain and improving function?
  • In adult patients immediately post primary total knee replacement (TKR) for osteoarthritis (OA) is group therapy more clinically effective than an individual programme for pain and function?

Knee arthroplasty

  • In an adult population undergoing primary total knee replacement (TKR) does the addition of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) to usual care improve pain management & as a result improve range of movement (ROM) within 3 months post-operatively?

Knee brace 

  • Does the addition of a knee brace‌, restriciting range of movement, provide improved outcomes compared to rehabilitation alone in meniscal repairs? 

Knee replacement

  • In an adult population undergoing primary total knee replacement (TKR) does the addition of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) to usual care improve pain management & as a result improve range of movement (ROM) within 3 months post-operatively?
