They also found a significant decrease in the VAS scores; however, they failed to show a significant change in the WOMAC subscores with isokinetic exercises.[9] One of the limitations of this study was that the patients performed only a single day of isokinetic exercise program with 30[degrees]/sec, 60[degrees]/sec, 90[degrees]/sec and 180[degrees]/sec angular velocities.

Recent trials investigating the influence of creatine on isokinetic torque (elbow flexion) did not find significant effects (16,21), but earlier studies in the laboratory setting have shown that supplementation with 20 to 40 g per day for four to seven days may improve isokinetic torque force production and attenuate the decline in power during repetitive isokinetic exercise (6).
