60 patients with knee osteoarthritis were randomized to receive 3 weeks of either ultrasound (US) therapy or neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES). Outcomes of interest included pain scores at rest and during activity, the 15 meter walk test, the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) pain, stiffness and physical function scores, and muscular architecture of t...
