Effects of resistance training and neuromuscular electrical stimulation in knee osteoarthritis : a randomised control trial.

Robert A. Bruce-Brand
This study compared the effects of 6-week home-based resistance training (RT) and neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) programs on self-reported disability, functional capacity, quadriceps strength and cross-sectional area (CSA), and expression of myosin heavy chain (MHC) isoforms and ubiquitin-protein ligases in older persons with moderate to severe knee osteoarthritis (OA). A total of 41 patients aged 55 to 75 years with arthroscopically or radiographically confirmed moderate to severe knee OA were randomised to a 6-week home...
