Abstract

The bibliography presents the results of searching systematic reviews relating to exercise and physical therapies in osteoarthritis during the last year, however it is recognised that 4 reviews from the Centre for Reviews and Dissemination summarise papers published in 2007 and January 2008.

It has previously been suggested that the most important concept emerging from current research is that joint failure is the problem in osteoarthritis. In assisting patients to manage the resultant symptoms, a range of non-pharmacological therapies is recommended in clinical guidelines (education, exercise and lifestyle changes, including weight loss). As these interventions are rarely given in isolation, research evidence is needed to determine their efficacy and optimal application in clinical practice. Some aspects are addressed in this update; however many questions remain unanswered.
