Brief Summary in Lay Language

An online survey will be conducted to evaluate the current physiotherapy management for patients with hip and knee osteoarthritis. We will invite German physiotherapists who are involved in the management of patients with hip and knee osteoarthritis. We will describe the treatment modalities most frequently used in osteoarthritis management and guideline adherence regarding the German AWMF guidelines will be assessed. Participants will be asked for awareness of different osteoarthritis guidelines. In addition, general barriers to guideline use in clinical practice as well as, in particular, barriers and facilitators to the implementation of the AWMF guidelines will be assessed.
