Osteochondroma is the most common benign bone tumor but it rarely arises from the scapula. Scapulothoracic bursitis is quite rare and osteochondroma is one of the unusual causes of this condition. Synovial chondromatosis may occur extremely uncommonly in this bursa. We reported an unusual case of scapulothoracic bursitis with synovial chondromatosis which is caused by osteochondroma. To the best of our knowledge, there is no defined chondromatosis in the scapulothoracic bursa secondary to scapular osteochondroma in the literature...

Cancer diagnosis often substantially affects patient's physical, psychological, and emotional status. The majority of cancer patients experience declining of energy, activity levels, social-cultural participation and relationships. In addition, cancer progression and side effects of aggressive cancer treatment often cause debilitating pain, fatigue, weakness, joint stiffness, depression, emotional instability, limited mobility, poor nutritional status, skin breakdown, bowel dysfunction, swallowing difficulty, and lymphedema leading into functional impairment and disability that can be addressed through rehabilitation care...

Managing top-level athlete's recovery after an injury is very complicated because it requires a challenging combination of clinical and social/professional aspects with the need to return as soon as possible to sports play. Herein, we report a top-level volleyball player for whom a finger splint combined with a custom made thermoplastic protection was used for the conservative management of a Mallet fracture re-injury. This way our player continued training and competitions in contrast to conventional rehabilitation protocols which suggest to avoid new traumas until the healing phase is completed...

Individuals with cerebral palsy (CP) exhibit neuromuscular complications and low physical activity levels. Adults with CP exhibit a high prevalence of chronic diseases, which is associated with musculoskeletal deficits. Children with CP have poor musculoskeletal accretion accompanied by excess bone marrow fat, which may lead to weaker bones. Mechanistic studies to determine the role of bone marrow fat on skeletal growth and maintenance, and how it relates to systemic energy metabolism among individuals with CP, are lacking...

OBJECTIVES: Activity of Daily Living (ADL) stages and Instrumental Activity of Daily Living (IADL) stages demonstrated ordered associations with mortality, risk of hospitalization, and receipt of recommended care. This paper explores the associations of stages with three dimensions of patient activation: self-care efficacy, patient-doctor communication and health-information seeking. We hypothesized that higher ADL and IADL stages (greater limitation) are associated with a lower level of patient activation...

OBJECTIVE: To systematize the disability condition related to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) patients using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) and Narrative Medicine approach as a common tool to identify a patient's functional problems. Once identified, this can be used as the basis for an individual rehabilitation project. DESIGN: An observational study on patients residing in a central region of Italy with a diagnosis of ALS...

OBJECTIVE: Strenuous exercise can induce apoptosis in a variety of tissues. We investigated the effects of creatine loading on apoptosis markers after downhill running. DESIGN: Twenty-two middle-aged men were randomly assigned to either a creatine or a placebo group. Crossover design, double-blind controlled supplementation was performed using 20 g/d of creatine or maltodextrin for seven days. Downhill running (12% incline) at 70% of HRmax for 40 min was performed on the 8th day...

To investigate whether low physical fitness and inactive and sedentary lifestyles play a role in the severity of fatigue in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (a-SAH). DESIGN: Prospective one-year follow-up study, including a total of 52 patients with a-SAH. Outcome measures included the Fatigue Severity Scale -score, peak oxygen uptake (V[Combining Dot Above]O2peak), isokinetic knee muscle strength (peak torque), physical activity (%24h period) and sedentary behavior (% waking hours), and were evaluated at six and twelve months post onset...

OBJECTIVES: To describe: (1) the amount of physical activity (PA) in cardiac rehabilitation (CR) graduates by sex, and (2) the correlates of their PA. DESIGN: Secondary analysis of baseline data from a randomized trial was undertaken. Graduates were recruited from 3 CR programs. Participants completed a questionnaire which assessed constructs from the Socio-ecological model (i.e., individual-level, social and physical-environmental levels). PA was measured objectively using an ActiGraph GT3X accelerometer...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the effectiveness of physiotherapy (PT) interventions on spasticity in people with multiple sclerosis (PwMS). DESIGN: A systematic search was performed using PRISMA guidance. Studies evaluate the effect of PT interventions on spasticity were included. PwMS, spasticity, disability and PT interventions characteristics were extracted in included studies. Level of evidence was synthesized by GRADE approach. Meta-analyses were performed by calculating Hedges g at 95% confidence interval...

OBJECTIVE: Determine whether somatosensory stimulation affects outcomes of motor training for moderate-to-severe upper extremity hemiparesis less than 12 months post-stroke. DESIGN: 55 adults participated in 18 intervention sessions pairing 2 hours of active (n=33) or sham (n=22) somatosensory stimulation with 4 hours of intensive task-oriented motor training. Wolf Motor Function Test, Action Research Arm Test, Fugl-Meyer Assessment, and Stroke Impact Scale were administered at baseline, post-intervention, and 1- and 4-month follow-up...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to examine whether a diagnosis of pre-fracture Dementia (PFD) affects functional outcome at discharge from a geriatric rehabilitation setting. DESIGN: A total of 211 consecutive elderly hip fracture patients were evaluated retrospectively. We used the Functional Independence Measure (FIM) and analyzed data by t-test, chi square-test and multiple linear regression analysis. RESULTS: Patients with PFD were older (P = 0...
