Physical Methods of Rehabilitation for Patients with Osteoarthritis: A Scientometric Analysis of Evidence-Based Studies

Cover Page

Abstract

Relevance. A rise in the life expectancy of the planet’s population, lack of exercise and growth in the number of people suffering from overweight lead to an increase in the number of patients suffering from diseases of the musculoskeletal system, including osteoarthritis. Given the absence of specific pharmacological treatment of osteoarthritis, as well as the increase in the number of patients with co-morbid pathology, it became necessary to search for the proven technologies of physical and rehabilitation medicine (PRM). The purpose of the study was to identify the most effective PRM technologies in the treatment of patients with osteoarthritis and to formulate recommendations on their use for practitioners, based on the proof obtained through the analysis of evidence-based high quality studies on the application of PRM technology. Materials and Methods. Over the past decade, there has been a significant increase in the number of studies on non-pharmacological methods of osteoarthritis treatment. The most studied of the PRM technologies with the proven effect were the following: physical exercises combined with traditional healthy gymnastics, acupuncture, peloid therapy, balneo therapy, as well as low-frequency electrotherapy, ultrasound therapy and infrared laser therapy. Conclusion. The use of PRM technologies in the treatment of patients with osteoarthritis should be based on the results of high-quality randomized controlled clinical trials which serve as the basis for the development of clinical recommendations. The process of the obtained data analysis should be conducted on the regular basis.
