Try using disease and various therapies and review.    That might get you
into the territory you're looking for.

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!
