Back in 2014 when PEDro was celebrating its 15th anniversary we decided to identify the 15 most important physiotherapy trials. We added 5 more trials to this list to celebrate PEDro’s 20th anniversary in 2019. Collectively these trials will be called the PEDro Top 20 Trials.
We have made short videos to summarise 17 of the trials.
We have produced videos for the last three of the PEDro Top 20 Trials.
