Abstract

Knee osteoarthritis is a chronic, degenerative disease without therapeutic interventions toward prevent the articular cartilage deterioration, thus pain and functionality limitation are the main goals of the physical therapy treatment. The therapeutic ultrasound is a common physical modality used for the treatment of osteoarthritis, however, the results reported in the literature about the therapeutic effect of this physical modality in patients with knee osteoarthritis are contradictory and limits clinical decision making. Therefore, we made a critical analysis of scientific evidence about this matter, we made an approached to the appropriate parameters to achieve therapeutic effects and we analyzed the possible mechanisms by which these effects can occur.
