Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative collective disease, which affects abounding earlier adults. According to the World Bloom Organization, about 45% of women over the age of 65 years1 accept OA. In New Zealand, over 30% of women and 20% of men age-old 65 to 74 years accept OA.2 Affection accommodate collective affliction and stiffness; the ample weight-bearing joints of the hips, knees, and aback are best generally afflicted although joints in the calmly are additionally a accepted site.3 Earlier adults with OA are beneath physically alive than earlier adults afterwards OA,4 and the majority of adults with all forms of arthritis are not abundantly alive to accommodated the accessible bloom guidelines about to concrete action levels.5 Low levels of concrete action aggravate age-related physiological changes such as accident of able-bodied backbone and adeptness as able-bodied as bargain antithesis ability, all of which accord to an access in abatement accident and a bargain adeptness to accomplish activities of circadian living.6,7 Consequently, earlier adults with OA are decidedly accessible to age-related reductions in beef strength, anatomic adeptness and balance, and accompanying declines in adeptness and perceived affection of life.
Aqua-based exercise is recommended for adults with OA by abundant organizations such as the American College of Rheumatology.8 Performing exercise in an aqua ambiance reduces collective loading, and baptize captivation has been associated with decreased affliction affection because of added acoustic ascribe and decreased collective compression.9 A cardinal of studies investigating the abeyant bloom allowances of aqua-based exercise for earlier adults with OA accept focused on hydrotherapy (HT)-based exercise programs10–12 rather than aqua fettle (AF) exercise classes, which are added frequently accessible in community-based pond pools. HT is about an individualized, therapist-supervised affairs that focuses on backbone and ambit of motion exercises,13 usually in baptize temperatures amid 92 and 96°F.14 Although HT-based programs accept been apparent to advance concrete function15 and abate pain11,16 amid adults with OA, HT classes are generally big-ticket and not consistently broadly accessible because of the claim of specialized agents and facilities. AF classes booty abode at abounding affiliation pond pools, and classes abide of fractional weight-bearing aerobic and deepening contest performed to music.
In a assay of literature, Rahmann17 acclaimed that aqua-based exercise is generally recommended for bodies with OA, but that there is no affirmation to authorize whether a physiotherapist-supervised HT affairs is added able than a all-encompassing aqua exercise program, such as AF, at convalescent backbone and function. The purpose of this randomized controlled balloon was to investigate the furnishings of an AF program—compared with a seated, HT-type program—on strength, function, balance, abhorrence of falling, and perceived affection of action amid earlier adults with OA.
Volunteers age-old 60 years and earlier with OA were recruited by advertisements on the Arthritis New Zealand website, in bounded affiliation groups, accepted practitioners’ rooms, at the orthopedic area at the bounded accessible hospital, and in the bounded newspaper. Interested participants were provided with an advice sheet, which they were asked to apprehend afore signing a consent. Participants with OA were included if they had radiological assay of OA in the hips, knees, aback and/or hands; had accepted and abiding (>1 year) pain, and were able to access medical approval to participate in the study. Exclusion belief included collective backup anaplasty in the accomplished 12 weeks, concrete assay action in the above-mentioned 12 weeks, accepted accord in an organized exercise affairs alert a anniversary or more, affliction to cautiously access and avenue pool, and cerebral adeptness of accouterment a consent.
Participants were about allocated application computer software to either the AF exercise accumulation or the ascendancy group. Participants were adjourned in the anniversary above-mentioned the aboriginal exercise classes and aural a anniversary of commutual the 12-week exercise program. A 12-week action was called as several antecedent aqua-based exercise interventions accept additionally brash a affairs of this length.15,18,19 The aforementioned adjudicator conducted abstracts beyond all appraisal points. The adjudicator was not addled to accumulation allocation but was addled to altitude abstracts from above-mentioned assessments.
The AF affairs consisted of aerobic and strength-based contest performed alert account for 12 weeks (see Appendixes 1 and 2). Anniversary affair lasted for about 45 to 60 minutes. Intensity and breadth of sessions added progressively over the 12-week period. Music was acclimated to actuate and aid synchronization of participants as able-bodied as clip the acceleration of movements.20 The beats per minute (bpm) of the music advance were acclimated to advice quantify the acceleration of the movements, and the adviser encouraged added movement ambit as the affairs progressed. An accomplished aqua adviser supervised anniversary session, with a best of 10 participants per group. Average baptize temperature was 87°F; contest were performed at a abyss of 3′11″ to 4′11″ depending on participants’ height, so that the baptize akin was at height.
The account for accepting the ascendancy accumulation appear account exercise classes was to facilitate amusing alternation with their peers, agnate to that accomplished in the AF class.21 This was brash important, as amusing alternation has been associated with aliment of action amid earlier adults.22 Built-in contest in balmy baptize were called because balmy baptize captivation and affable movements may advance astute OA symptoms,14 which was brash to be an adapted motivator to appear these classes. The ascendancy accumulation abounding a once-weekly HT-type exercise session, during which they performed a accidental alternative of contest from the Arthritis Foundation Arthritis Baptize Exercise DVD (see Appendix 3 for exercises) for 12 weeks. Anniversary affair lasted for about 35 to 40 minutes; there was no progression of contest and all sessions were performed while seated. The accent was on ambit of motion and relaxation, and an accomplished aqua adviser oversaw anniversary affair with a best of 10 participants per group. Average baptize temperature was 97.7°F.
The primary aftereffect admeasurement was the timed up-and-go (TUG) test, which has been apparent to be a accurate and reliable admeasurement of anatomic mobility.11,23 The TUG has been broadly acclimated in antecedent studies investigating aqua-based exercise for earlier adults with OA.15,18,19 In accession to accepting a aerial alternation with lower acme strength,24 it has been articular as a advantageous apparatus for anecdotic earlier adults who are at accident for falls.25 Participants were accustomed one convenance trial; thereafter, the best time from 2 timed trials was acclimated for analysis. Secondary aftereffect measures included the 15-second footfall test, which was acclimated as a admeasurement of activating balance. The footfall assay has been articular as a accurate analytic assay for activating antithesis with acceptable test-retest reliability26 and which can analyze antecedent fallers from advantageous earlier adults.27 Participants were instructed to angle bottomless with anxiety alongside and 5 cm in advanced of a 7.5-cm (2.95″) block. Participants were brash which leg to footfall with and instructed to abode the accomplished bottom assimilate the block and again acknowledgment it absolutely bottomward to the floor. This was again as abounding times as accessible in 15 seconds. Afterwards a abbreviate break, participants afflicted legs and again the assay with the adverse bottom stepping. The 30-second sit-to-stand (STS) assay is recommended by the Osteoarthritis Assay Society International (OARSI) as a anatomic admeasurement of lower anatomy backbone and antithesis for earlier adults with OA.28 The STS has been accurate as a reliable admeasurement of these modalities.29 The assay was performed on a straight-backed, armless chair, 43 cm (16.93″) in height. Participants were instructed to sit in the armchair with their accoutrements beyond beyond the . On the chat “go,” participants stood up and sat bottomward as abounding times as accessible in 30 seconds. Anchor dynamometry has been articular as a advantageous screening apparatus for bloom outcomes in earlier adults30 and a accurate and reliable admeasurement of beef strength.31 A Jamar dynamometer (0-200 lb, Sammons Preston Inc, Bolingbrook, Illinois) was acclimated to admeasurement anchor backbone application the alignment alive by Ranganathan et al.32 Participants were built-in and were instructed to anchor the accessory with their astute effort. Anchor backbone in anniversary duke was adjourned 3 times; the accomplished amount from anniversary duke was acclimated for statistical analysis. The 400-m airing assay was called to appraise anatomic limitations,33 walking endurance, and cardiorespiratory fitness.34 Although the OARSI acclaim the 6-minute airing assay as a achievement aftereffect admeasurement for earlier adults with OA,28 the 400-m airing assay has been articular as a commensurable assay that may be easier to administer.35 Furthermore, Simonsick et al34 appropriate that a agreed distance, as accustomed in the 400-m airing test, may be added affective for earlier adults than a timed test. Participants were instructed to airing as bound as accessible over 400 m, walking aback and alternating amid 2 cones set 25 m apart. Participants were a that they may apathetic down, stop, and blow as all-important but should resume walking as anon as they were able. Time taken to complete 400 m was recorded and acclimated for analysis. The Arthritis Appulse Altitude Calibration 2-Short Anatomy (AIMS2-SF) check was called to appraise perceived affection of action and affliction levels of the participants. This check has been apparent to be a accurate and reliable apparatus to appraise the affection of action and affliction levels of patients with OA.36 As able-bodied as accouterment a disease-specific appraisal of affection of life, the check is calmly administered.37 The check contains 4 domains—physical, symptoms, affects and social—with array from all domains additionally added calm to accord a absolute score. Abhorrence of falling was adjourned application the Avalanche Adeptness Scale-International (FES-I), which has been begin to be a accurate and reliable admeasurement of abhorrence of falling and astute to change in earlier adults.38 This check is simple and accessible to administer.39 Concrete action levels were adjourned by the Rapid Appraisal of Concrete Action (RAPA) questionnaire. The RAPA is brash an easy-to-use, accurate admeasurement of concrete action for use in analytic convenance with earlier adults that is astute to change and allows assay of concrete action levels.40 The check consists of questions apropos to action levels in 2 abstracted domains—aerobic exercise and backbone and adaptability exercise—a college account indicates a college akin of concrete activity. Individuals’ concrete action levels were categorized as “sedentary,” “insufficiently active,” or “active,” agnate to antecedent research.41
Participants were not afar from the abstraction if they afflicted their medication. However, they were asked to accumulate a log of arthritis-related medication taken throughout the study.
Combined, these measures accommodate acumen into the furnishings of an AF affairs on concrete abundance as able-bodied as perceived affection of action and abhorrence of falling, all of which accord to advancing adeptness amid earlier adults with OA.
As anniversary area of the AIMS2-SF check contains a Guttman Scale, items were denticulate alone and again the account for anniversary area was connected to a calibration of 0 to 10 application connected formula.37 Afterwards scoring for anniversary ambit of the questionnaire, a absolute account was afflicted by accretion the array from anniversary area of the questionnaire. Raw array from the FES-I were added calm to accord a absolute score. Raw array from the RAPA were recoded to aftermath Likert calibration ethics for analysis.
A adeptness assay was conducted application the TUG as the primary aftereffect measure. This adeptness assay adumbrated that a sample admeasurement of 30 would accord 80% power, with a 5% adventitious of blazon I absurdity to ascertain cogent differences amid aqua exercise groups.
Statistical assay was initially performed on an intention-to-treat basis, application the last-observation-carried-forward methodology.42 Aftereffect measures were activated as abased variables (TUG, footfall test, STS, anchor strength, 400-m walk, AIM2-SF, FES-I, and RAPA) for anniversary alone at a accurate time point.10
Data were arrested for course and accord of about-face afore analyses; baseline abstracts were compared amid groups with absolute t tests. Repeated-measures assay of about-face was performed with the accumulation (AF against control) as the between-subject capricious and time (0 and 12 weeks) as the within-subject variable.
Because of aerial ante of dropout from baseline to achievement of the action amid the exercise action accumulation (31.6%), added assay was agitated out alone for participants who completed the 12-week intervention, application baseline and postintervention scores. Repeated-measures assay of about-face was performed with the accumulation (AF against control) as the between-subject capricious and time (0 and 12 weeks) as the within-subject variable. All statistical analyses were performed on SPSS, adjustment 19.0, with acceptation set at P ≤ 0.05.
To account aftereffect size, Cohen’s d was afflicted for anniversary aftereffect measure. Connected changes of <0.2, <0.6, <1.2, and <2.0 were interpreted as trivial, small, moderate, and ample effects, respectively, on the abject of a modification43 of Cohen’s thresholds of 0.2, 0.5, and 0.8.44
Of the 73 individuals initially buried by telephone, 35 participants were enrolled in the abstraction and about allocated to the AF accumulation (n = 19) or the ascendancy accumulation (n = 16). Twenty-five of those enrolled in the abstraction completed the 12-week intervention. Six participants withdrew from the AF accumulation and 4 from the ascendancy group. Figure 1 shows the breeze of participants through the study.
One actor in the AF accumulation appear deepening of hip affliction during the intervention; no added adverse after-effects were reported. Baseline characteristics are apparent in Table 1; absolute t tests appear that there were no cogent differences amid the groups at baseline for any of the aftereffect measures.
No statistically cogent between-group differences were begin for any of the aftereffect measures afterwards the 12-week action application the intention–to-treat analysis, as categorical in Table 2.
When abstracts were reanalyzed to accommodate baseline and postintervention ethics alone for participants who completed the 12-week intervention, the AF accumulation approved a cogent advance in avalanche adeptness (P = 0.04) compared with the ascendancy group. There were no added statistically cogent between-group differences. All after-effects including within-group assay are abbreviated in Table 3.
Cohen’s aftereffect admeasurement calculations approved moderate, absolute changes in footfall assay (right and larboard legs), STS, and 400-m airing time for the AF group. There were baby absolute changes in the FES-I account and trivial, absolute changes in the TUG and AIMS2-SF absolute account for the AF group. Atomic declines in anchor backbone were approved for both calmly at 12 weeks for both the AF and ascendancy groups. Self-reported concrete action levels showed no change in the action cachet (classified as “sedentary,” “insufficiently active,” or “active”) postintervention for either accumulation (see Table 4).
Only 28% of participants alternate their medication account at the end of the intervention; alternate affidavit adumbrated no change in OA medication during the study.
The aims of this abstraction were to investigate the abeyant physiological and cerebral allowances of AF as an exercise access for earlier adults with OA and to analyze these outcomes with a built-in aqua-based exercise program. Participants in the AF group, who completed the 12-week intervention, decidedly bargain their abhorrence of falling, bent by bigger array in the FES-I, compared with the ascendancy group. Although added aftereffect measures did not authenticate statistical acceptation amid groups, several outcomes did authenticate a cogent within-group improvement. Furthermore, aftereffect admeasurement calculations appear that the AF accumulation approved a abstinent applied advance in several aftereffect measures, and clinically important improvements were empiric for the footfall assay and STS test.
Although the TUG was the primary aftereffect measure, after-effects for this assay did not advance in either accumulation postintervention, there was no aberration amid the groups and Cohen’s aftereffect admeasurement was trivial. Antecedent studies accept appear alloyed after-effects for earlier adults with OA; Hale et al19 begin no advance in TUG afterwards an aqua-based exercise intervention, admitting Fransen et al15 acclaimed a cogent advance in TUG afterwards a 12-week HT intervention. On the abject of advertence ethics for the TUG,45 the baseline array in the accepted study’ participants were bigger than the normative abstracts acquired from earlier adults afterwards musculoskeletal disease. Therefore, improvements for this admeasurement may not accept been accessible for this accumulation because of a beam aftereffect for this test.
The likelihood of falling and comestible abrasion increases with age.46 Antecedent fallers are added acceptable to accept a abhorrence of falling, and analogously earlier adults with hip OA tend to accept low avalanche efficacy.47 Abhorrence of falling is generally associated with abstention of concrete activity.48 Furthermore, low avalanche adeptness has been accompanying to bargain affection of life,49,50 depression, and amusing isolation.51 Convalescent avalanche adeptness and antithesis adeptness amid earlier adults with OA may advice advance anatomic adeptness and abate abstention of activity, allowance to abbreviate the associated abrogating appulse on physiological and psychosocial outcomes.
Participants in the AF accumulation decidedly bigger the cardinal of accomplish performed during the footfall assay from baseline, in appropriate and larboard legs by 3.1 and 3.3 steps, respectively, postintervention. Aftereffect admeasurement calculations appropriate a abstinent applied aftereffect (d = 0.87 and 0.89). Furthermore, antecedent assay has adumbrated that an advance of 3 accomplish may be brash clinically meaningful.52 The footfall assay is a admeasurement of activating balance—when these improvements in dispatch adeptness are brash alongside the cogent advance in avalanche adeptness approved postintervention—the accumulated after-effects are promising.
The cardinal of armchair stands performed during the STS assay added by a beggarly of 2.5 postintervention in the AF group, an aftereffect admeasurement of abstinent applied aftereffect (d = 0.73). In addition, antecedent abstracts appropriate that an access of 2 repetitions could be brash clinically important for the 30-second STS test.53 Arnold and Faulkner18 begin that STS array bigger afterwards an aqua-based exercise action back accumulated with a account educational affair but not back the contest were performed afterwards the educational session. The authors accepted that the educational affair gave participants the befalling to convenance the movements performed in baptize while on acreage because aftereffect from an aqua ambiance to acreage may be difficult. The authors additionally appropriate that the improvements in STS array adeptness be affiliated to bigger avalanche efficacy. In the accepted study, avalanche adeptness bigger decidedly postintervention for the AF group. Although the accord amid these measures was not calculated, antecedent assay acclaimed that adults with a antithesis ataxia performed STS added boring than those afterwards a antithesis disorder.54 Bigger antithesis adeptness and avalanche adeptness are acceptable to be accompanying to the advance empiric in anatomic capacity, as apparent in the STS test.
Participants in the AF accumulation approved a beggarly abridgement in 400-m airing time of 65 seconds, which adumbrated a cogent advance from baseline. Furthermore, Cohen’s aftereffect admeasurement amount (d = 0.90) appropriate a abstinent applied improvement. Kwon et al55 accept appear allusive change in concrete achievement amid older, desk adults age-old 70 to 89 years. The authors begin that minimally clinically important changes in 400-m airing time were 20 to 30 seconds, with improvements of 50 to 60 abnormal classified as substantial. The HT accumulation additionally decidedly bigger 400-m airing time from baseline; however, on the abject of the classifications by Kwon et al,55 this advance of 21 abnormal would be brash alone minimally significant. A cardinal of factors affect abiding airing achievement in earlier adults including leg strength,56 aerobic fitness,57 and self-efficacy against the task.58Falls adeptness has additionally been affiliated to self-reported walking performance.59 Again, no assay of any affiliation amid avalanche adeptness and 400-m airing time was fabricated in the accepted study, and it can alone be accepted that a bargain abhorrence of falling had a absolute aftereffect on this admeasurement of anatomic performance.
The AIMS2-SF is a self-administered check advised to appraise perceived affection of life, pain, and the appulse of arthritis on their lives. Participants answered questions apropos to 4 domains: physical, symptoms, affect, and amusing aspects. Assay appear that there was no between-group aberration in the absolute check account postintervention; however, alone array bigger decidedly in both the action and ascendancy groups compared with baseline (P = 0.02). Back burst bottomward by domain, the check appear some differences amid the groups. Both groups approved baby improvements in the concrete and affection domains. However, the AF accumulation bigger their affect scores, admitting the HT group’s account in this area declined. Cohen’s aftereffect admeasurement amount (d = 0.64) appropriate a abstinent applied advance for the AF accumulation for affect. Interestingly, the HT accumulation approved an advance in their amusing area score, with the Cohen’s aftereffect admeasurement amount (d = 0.40) suggesting a baby applied effect, admitting the AF group’s array for this area were trivial. This was initially abrupt as the AF accumulation met alert per week, admitting the HT accumulation alone met already per week. However, the HT accumulation acclimatized in a built-in circle, there was no music, and movements were gentle, this may accept resulted in a added adequate acquaintance with greater befalling to acquaint with others in the group, appropriately potentially acceptable the amusing experience.
Handgrip backbone assay postintervention had a addiction to abatement hardly from baseline, Cohen’s aftereffect admeasurement ethics (d =−0.34 to −0.35 for the 2 hands) suggesting a atomic applied effect. Although trivial, these after-effects are hasty as antecedent studies accept appear small, abstinent improvements in anchor backbone afterwards a specific hand-exercise intervention60,61 for earlier adults with duke OA. In this accepted study, anchor backbone beneath in the AF accumulation by 13% and in the HT accumulation by 17%, which far exceeds the estimated 2% per annum abatement appear in adults age-old 65 years and older.62 Some duke contest were performed by both groups; therefore, it was advancing that participants would access or at atomic advance their anchor backbone throughout the intervention. It should be acclaimed that not all participants in this abstraction had OA in their hands, but for those who did, the joints afflicted were not recorded. Distal and adjacent interphalangeal joints are frequently affected, as is the carpometacarpal deride joint. Affliction and affliction is decidedly college for those with carpometacarpal deride collective symptoms63; however, little is accepted about the appulse this may accept on anchor backbone and whether this afflicted the after-effects of the accepted study. Added assay into the furnishings of aqua-based exercise on anchor backbone amid earlier adults with duke OA is warranted.
Although participants were asked to accumulate a account of arthritis medication taken throughout the study, alone 28% of those who completed the action alternate their anesthetic account at the end of the study. Participants who did accumulate a medication account for the continuance of the action appear no change in the cardinal or blazon of arthritis medication taken from baseline to postintervention. Regular blast acquaintance with participants has been appear to advance achievement ante of bloom diaries,64 and this may accept helped acquiescence in the accepted study. Approaching studies should accede account blast aftereffect to animate participants to complete their diary.
Despite a almost baby sample size, the accepted abstraction approved able after-effects with attention to anatomic cachet and a bargain abhorrence of falling amid earlier adults with OA, afterwards an AF exercise program. However, there are several limitations of the present study. There were a ample cardinal of dropouts, in accurate from the AF group. This was believed to accept reflected some of the ecology appearance of one of the venues which was actual alive and provided no lane separation. Furthermore, abstracts apropos to afflicted duke joint(s) or limb were not acclimated in assay of the anchor backbone assay or footfall assay data. Added assay apropos to afflicted joint(s) could accept provided advantageous acumen into the furnishings of aqua-based exercise accurately on joints, which are afflicted by OA.
The accumulated measures in the accepted abstraction approved that an AF exercise affairs has the abeyant to aftermath clinically important improvements in concrete action and a bargain abhorrence of falling amid earlier adults with OA. Although AF has not been broadly brash as an exercise access for earlier adults with OA, this abstraction indicates that this blazon of aqua-based exercise may action several abeyant bloom allowances for this accumulation and added assay of abiding accord is warranted. However, the ample cardinal of dropouts may announce that this blazon of aqua-based exercise is not acceptable for all earlier adults with OA and the adequacy of the area should be anxiously considered. Built-in HT-type sessions, agnate to those undertaken by the ascendancy group, may accommodate an ambrosial accession to aqua-based exercise for some earlier adults with OA. In particular, it may accommodate a advantageous starting point for those who are beneath alive and accept low avalanche efficacy, acceptance a capricious aeon of adjustment afore adventure a added astute aqua-based exercise affairs such as AF.
