Hi Marian,

I wonder if adding epidemiological terms (e.g. incidence, prevalence) might help capture those kinds of papers?

Good Morning,

I hope I phrase this question correctly. (Library Tech here)

I have a podiatrist looking for systematic reviews on treatments of Achilles Tendonitis/Tendonopathy/Tendonosis.  What I am finding is studies on individual treatments, but he is looking for perhaps 1 study or article with the numbers of all treatments within the same article.  Such as ..% used PT and ..% used steroid injections and ..% used platelet-rich plasma injections and..% used surgery.  He has to speak with PCPs that want numbers of what methods he uses and why and they are looking for numbers.  I know what he is looking for, but I don't think that I am asking for it the right way.

Any help I could get would be much appreciated!
