Patient AdhereNce To Home Exercise pRograms (PANTHER)

Project Details

Exercise is an integral component of the conservative management of most musculoskeletal conditions. However adherence to exercises is often low and this impacts on treatment effectiveness. The aim of this randomised controlled trial is to evaluate whether the addition of a web-based system, Physitrack, to usual physiotherapy treatment improves patient adherence levels to exercises compared to the usual non web-based methods physiotherapists use to deliver exercise programs to people with musculoskeletal conditions.
