Knee Osteoarthritis - Factors That Influence Physiotherapy Interventions
Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is increasing in Canada.
Physiotherapists provide treatment for people with knee OA to improve their mobility and maximize their function. Because we do not have much information about what treatments physiotherapists in Canada utilize when treating people with knee OA and what factors influence treatment choice, we conducted a study to determine both.
Join the Canadian Physiotherapy Association and course presenter Brenda Tittlemier for this online course Knee Osteoarthritis - What Factors Influence the Interventions that Canadian Physiotherapists Provide?
