Samenvatting

Throughout the study of physiotherapy the western medical methods have been applied over and over again, with little regard for Chinese medicine. The client Contra expertise en Inspanningsonderzoek naar Arbeidsbelastbaarheid (CIA) has tasked two third year students from the ESP to investigate in the professional assignment project, “the effect of acupuncture compared to physiotherapeutic intervention in the management of knee OA’’. Osteoarthritis (OA), also called osteoarthroses or degenerative joint disease, is the most common type of arthritis. OA is a chronic condition characterized by the breakdown of the joint’s cartilage. The breakdown of cartilage causes the bones to rub against each other, causing stiffness, pain and loss of movement in the joint. The purpose of this study is to compare two types of therapy acupuncture (TCA) and physiotherapeutic intervention for the management of osteoarthritis of the knee in adult population aged 55 and above Results: Articles found and included in this literature research focused on acupuncture as an adjunctive therapy to physiotherapeutic intervention.. Discussion: Based on the literature reviewed, the authors could not conclude whether physiotherapeutic intervention is more effective than acupuncture or vise versa. In this, both therapies are effective if combined in the management of osteoarthritis of the knee.
