A recent systematic review by Ye et al.1 synthesizes, evaluates and presents the best available evidence from high quality trials to describe the effects of rehabilita- tive interventions on pain, function and physical impairments in people with hand osteoarthritis (OA). The findings will assist with clinical decision making, but they also highlight the dearth of high quality evidence on which to base recommendations for nonpharmacological therapy of hand OA.
