  1. Modified Kennelly [55] rating determined by raw critical appraisal score (out of 21) to determine the overall methodological quality of each study as either poor (≤ 10), fair (11–14), or good (≥ 15). Risk of bias rating was determined by internal validity subset items on the Downs and Black checklist [49] (out of 6) as either low (≥ 4) or high (≤ 3)
