    Hi NewsBot,

    You reported (much cut):
    ""Physical therapy works," Ross said of the study's results. "Early intervention is worthwhile."

    Hmmmm. aren't the cohorts a little small in this study?

    Regards,
    davidh

    You right - but it was just a news report from Biomechanics and not data was given in the story, so we can not judge that statement

    Small sample sizes are not necessarily a problem if the effect size was large (in fact if the effect size was large, it would be unethical to deny the control group the intervention).
