To celebrate PEDro’s 20th birthday we identified the five most important randomised controlled trials in physiotherapy published in the years 2014-2019. We invited PEDro users to nominate randomised controlled trials in physiotherapy for consideration. Nominations were judged by a panel of international physiotherapy trialists.
The PEDro Top 5 Trials 2014-2019 are ground-breaking trials that changed the way people are treated for a variety of conditions seen by physiotherapists and other healthcare professionals. Some of these trials set the stage for breakthroughs, some represent a paradigm shift, and all of them mark important milestones in the evolution of physiotherapy treatment.
We are pleased to announce that video summaries of the PEDro Top 5 Trials 2014-2019 are now available in Portuguese.
PEDro would like to thank Ana Helena Salles and Dr Marina de Barros Pinheiro for creating these videos. Ana, who translated and recorded the videos, was doing a 11 month internship at The University of Sydney and is from the Faculdade de Ciências Médicas de Minas Gerais, Brazil. Marina is an NHMRC Early Career Fellow at the Institute for Musculoskeletal Health at The University of Sydney and Sydney Local Health District.
We present the trials in order of publication, from the most recent to oldest.
