Le traitement par l'observation d'action : une plus-value dans la rééducation post-opératoire orthopédique du membre inférieur

Abstract : Summary: The OA treatment was developed following research and the discovery of particular neurons capable of activating when we do and when we watch someone else do an action: the mirror neuron system. This innovative treatment, allows an application to several fields of medicine (neurology, orthopedics, sports), contrasting with the different treatments, specific to each field. Objectives: The aim of this review is to gather the results of studies on the application of OA treatment in the post-surgical orthopaedic field, and to say whether or not this treatment is effective in improving functional status and pain. Method: Searches were performed on several databases (PubMed, PEDro, Google Scholar). A "specification" was established with different inclusion and exclusion criteria, the studies meeting the different criteria were selected, sorted to obtain a total of 4 studies. The risks of bias of these studies were assessed using the PEDro scale. The results were then pooled and analyzed. Results: The results obtained in the different studies are mitigated. Indeed, two of the four studies showed a statistically significant effectiveness of OA for the improvement of the functional state and only one study out of three showed a superiority of the treatment by OA in terms of improvement of the pain. Discussion: After analysis of the results, none of the 4 studies was clinically significant for these 2 variables. Conclusion: In spite of the results not converging towards the same end point, new larger studies should be carried out to ensure the effectiveness of the treatment and the optimal application .
