Table 2 Change (follow-up minus baseline) in knee muscle strength

From: Is the relationship between increased knee muscle strength and improved physical function following exercise dependent on baseline physical function status?

  Baseline physical dysfunction severity
Total group Mild Moderate Severe
Knee extensor strength (Nm/kg) 0.12 (0.07 to 0.17)* 0.08 (0.02 to 0.15)* 0.12 (0.06 to 0.19)* 0.17 (0.00 to 0.33)*
Knee flexor strength (Nm/kg) 0.05 (0.02 to 0.07)* 0.03 (−0.02 to 0.07) 0.05 (0.01 to 0.09) 0.08 (0.01 to 0.15)
WOMAC physical function −11.07 (−13.59 to −8.54)* −3.92 (−7.26 to −0.57)* −14.69 (−18.23 to −11.14)* −17.18 (−23.04 to −11.32)*
WOMAC pain −10.40 (−13.10 to − 7.70)* −6.73 (−11.41 to −2.05)* −10.91 (−14.83 to −6.98)* −16.59 (−21.76 to −11.44)*
