Concussions have become a public health issue. This public health concern has drawn the attention of many states in which laws were created to address concussions safety, recognition of signs and symptoms, immediate removal, medical clearance, and return to play protocols. The vast majority of state legislation focused on student athletes participating in organized sports. However the rise in concussion can be directly attributed to children, youth and adolescents participating in non-sports related events...

OBJECTIVE: To estimate the prevalence of late-life community disability for adults aged 65 and older with cardiovascular disease vs. those without. This study also investigated the contributions of environmental and individual risk factors on late-life community disability for persons with cardiovascular disease. DESIGN: Secondary data analysis of the 2016 round of the National Health and Aging Trends Study. The study sample included community-dwelling Americans with cardiovascular disease (n=1,490) and without (n=4,819)...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the transcription profile of the mouse nucleus pulposus (NP) and annulus fibrosus (AF) with an unbiased method. Furthermore, pathophysiological relevance of selected genes was demonstrated in the mouse tail intervertebral disc (IVD) injury model. DESIGN: Paired normal mouse NP and AF tissue from C57BL/6j mice was examined by a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) array. Key gene expression in the normal and injured IVDs were confirmed by Real-Time PCR...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this cross-sectional study was to examine whether an internal focus on different core muscles during the isometric prone plank exercise increase muscle activity. DESIGN: Twenty university students performed 5 different conditions: regular prone plank (external focus) and prone plank with an internal focus on different muscles. Surface electromyography (EMG) signals were recorded for the upper rectus abdominis (UP ABS), lower rectus abdominis (LOW ABS), external oblique (OBLIQ) and lumbar erector spinae (LUMB)...

OBJECTIVE: Prior retrospective studies suggest that early physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) consultation for trauma patients improves outcome and reduces acute care length of stay (LOS). There have not been controlled studies to evaluate this impact. This study assesses the impact of PM&R consultations on acute trauma patients. DESIGN: This study compared measured outcomes before and after the introduction of a PM&R consultation service to the trauma program at a large academic hospital...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to compare the effects of two different task-oriented activity training (TOAT) programs on activity performance and participation in children/adolescents with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA). DESIGN: Sixty-two patients were randomized into group I and group II for TOAT. In group I, activities of daily living (ADL) were practiced using real materials from daily life and, in group II, ADL were practiced using video-based games (Xbox 360 Kinect) for 3 days/a week/8 weeks...

The objectives of this study were to examine the effectiveness of different types of exercise on risk factors of diabetic foot ulcers, including glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), peripheral arterial disease (PAD), and diabetic peripheral neuropathy, in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). PubMed, Web of Science, Cochrane Library, Scopus, and CINAHL were searched from inception to January 2018 for relevant articles. Eligible studies were randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that examined effects of exercise on the selected risk factors...

Mechanical insufflation exsufflation-expiratory flows (MIE-EF) correlate with upper airway patency. Patients dependent on continuous noninvasive ventilatory support (CNVS) with severe spinal muscular atrophy type 1, now over 20 years old, have used MIE sufficiently effectively along with CNVS to avoid tracheotomy indefinitely. While MIE-EF can apparently decrease in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis to necessitate tracheotomy, they can increase over time and remain effective in all spinal muscular atrophy types...

Sung Ho Jang, Seong Ho Kim, Han Do Lee
OBJECTIVE: We investigated the relation between memory impairment and the fornix injury in patients with mild traumatic brain injury(TBI), using diffusion tensor tractography(DTT). DESIGN: Eighty six chronic patients with mild TBI and 50 normal control subjects were recruited. Fractional anisotropy(FA) and fiber volume were measured for each reconstructed fornix. The patients were classified according to three types; type A(47 patients) - intact integrity of both fornical crura, type B(27 patients) - showed a discontinuation in either fornical crus, and type C(12 patients) - discontinuations in both fornical crura...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the outcomes of wearing made-to-measure compression gloves following distal radius fracture. DESIGN: In a randomized controlled trial, adults who were about six weeks post-distal radius fracture were recruited and divided into a comparison control group (N=15), who received standard rehabilitation twice a week for half an hour, and an intervention group (N=17), who additionally used compression gloves. All treatments were conducted at a single rehabilitation clinic...

OBJECTIVES: To provide knowledge about (a) the provision of assistive devices in practice and (b) the challenges of standardizing device provision. DESIGN: Retrospective study using Department of Veteran Affairs National Prosthetic Patient Database and other administrative databases. The cohort included all veterans treated by the VA for stroke during fiscal years 2007-2008. Descriptive methods were used to analyze data with emphasis on inspecting relationships between device provision and motor and cognitive function using Functional Independence Measure scores...
