114 patients with knee osteoarthritis were randomized to receive 12 days of focused low-intensity pulsed ultrasound therapy (n=57) or pulsed shortwave diathermy (n=57). The primary outcome of interest was functional capacity as measured by the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) and associated sub-scores (pain; physical function; stiffness). Secondary outcomes of...
