The importance of skeletal muscle strength to physical function in older adults. They recorded an increase in strength in both groups, without any differences between groups. Random effects models were used for all analyses. Journal List Dtsch Arztebl Int v. When data from 8 RCTs were synthesized using meta-analysis, a significant benefit from PRT was found on lower extremity extensor strength standardized mean difference SMD 0. All of the programs had participants exercise 3 times per week, except in the study by Lim et al26 where people exercised 5 times per week.
Table 2 Comparison of strength and functional outcomes between older adults with and without OA.
Strength training in older adults: The benefits for osteoarthritis
The effect of dynamic versus isometric resistance training on pain and functioning among adults with osteoarthritis of the knee. Functional losses in strength and balance capacity, and increasing gait uncertainties are the result. Exercise prescription in the older athlete as it applies to muscle, tendon, and arthroplasty. They recorded an increase in strength in both groups, without any differences between groups. Comparison of strength and functional outcomes between older adults with and without OA. Latham N, Liu CJ.
