Effectiveness of exercise therapy: A best-evidence summary of systematic reviews
Nynke Smidt, Henrica CW de Vet, Lex M Bouter and Joost Dekker for the Exercise Therapy Group

Conclusions about the effectiveness of exercise therapy were based on the results presented in reasonable or good quality systematic reviews (qualityscore ≥ 60 out of 100 points). A total of 104 systematic reviews were selected, 45 of which were of reasonable or good quality.Exercise therapy is effective for patients with knee osteoarthritis, sub-acute (6 to 12 weeks) and chronic (≥ 12 weeks) low back pain,cystic fibrosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and intermittent claudication. Furthermore, there are indications that exercise therapy is effective for patients with ankylosing spondylitis, hip osteoarthritis, Parkinson’s disease, and for patients who have suffered a stroke. There is insufficient evidence to support or refute the effectiveness of exercise therapy for patients with neck pain, shoulder pain, repetitive strain injury, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, and bronchiectasis. Exercise therapy is not effective for patients with acute low back pain. It is concluded that exercise therapy is effective for a wide range of chronic disorders.
