Clinical Trial Summary

The high prevalence of knee osteoarthritis and the absence of well-defined protocols for the application of Magnetotherapy (MT), makes it necessary to investigate the effect of this therapy on patients with knee osteoarthritis. Furthermore, no studies are comparing the effectiveness of the two interventions proposed in this project (MT) and microwaves (MW), which are routinely applied in clinical practice, without solid scientific evidence to justify their use. The purpose of the present clinical trial is to compare MT with MW both combined with a therapeutic exercise program in patients with painful knee osteoarthritis and its influence on pain and function.


Clinical Trial Description

This study is a double-blinded, sham-controlled, randomized clinical trial whose main objective is to investigate the effect on pain and function in people with moderate knee osteoarthritis of the intervention with Magnetotherapy (MT) combined with an exercise program compared to microwave (MW) application combined with an exercise program and to MT placebo combined with an exercise program. The study will take place at several centers of primary healthcare centers in Spain. After receiving the approval of the Ethics and Clinical Research Committee of Talavera de la Reina Hospital (Toledo). It is proposed to perform the study between March 2021 to March 2022. The secondary objectives are: - To investigate the effect of intervention with MT and MW plus exercise on quality of life and psychosocial factors of pain in people with osteoarthritis of the knee. - To evaluate the effect of both interventions on knee joint kinematics and range of motion and lower limb strength. - To evaluate the success of the blinding method of participants and professionals. - To measure the possible adverse effects of the application of MT and MW in patients with moderate osteoarthritis of the knee. The participants will be randomly assigned in three groups: - Group A: Magnetotherapy combined plus exercise program. - Group B: Sham magnetotherapy plus exercise program. - Group C: Microwaves combined plus exercise program. A minimum of 72 adults, older than 45 years old, diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the knee who meet the inclusion criteria will be recruited by voluntary admission. ;
