  • Mean effect sizes (Hedges’ g) with 95% CIs between separate physical exercise interventions as per the networkmeta-analysis model investigating the effectiveness on pain-related disability. Negative values favour the row-defined intervention, whereas positive values favour the column-defined intervention. Bold denotes statistical significance at p<0.05.
