REVIEW
Marla K Beauchamp, Annemarie Lee, Rachel F Ward, Samantha M Harrison, Paul A Bain, Roger S Goldstein, Dina Brooks, Jonathan F Bean, Alan M Jette
Background: The World Health Organization recognizes participation in meaningful life roles as a key component of health. However, the evidence base for interventions to improve participation remains inconclusive. In particular, whether exercise interventions improve participation in life roles is unclear. Purpose: The aim of this review was to evaluate the effect of physical exercise interventions on participation in life roles in older adults residing in the community...

Background: Testing aerobic fitness in youth is important because of expected relationships with health. Objective: The purpose of the study was to estimate the validity and reliability of the Shuttle Ride Test in youth who have spina bifida and use a wheelchair for mobility and sport. Design: Ths study is a validity and reliability study.

Background: Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) represents a transition between normal cognitive aging and dementia and may represent a critical time frame for promoting cognitive health through behavioral strategies. Current evidence suggests that physical activity (PA) and sedentary behavior are important for cognition. However, it is unclear whether there are differences in PA and sedentary behavior between people with probable MCI and people without MCI or whether the relationships of PA and sedentary behavior with cognitive function differ by MCI status...

#7
REVIEW
Marian J Hernon, Amanda M Hall, James F O'Mahony, Charles Normand, Deirdre A Hurley
Background: Evidence for the cost-effectiveness of self-management interventions for chronic musculoskeletal pain (CMP) lacks consensus, which may be due to variability in the costing methods employed. Purpose: The purposes of the study were to identify how costs and effects have been assessed in economic analysis of self-management interventions for CMP and to identify the effect of the chosen analytical perspective on cost-effectiveness conclusions. Data Sources: Five databases were searched for all study designs using relevant terms...

Background: The Motor Activity Log (MAL) and Lower-Functioning MAL (LF-MAL) are used to assess the amount of use of the more impaired arm and the quality of movement during activities in real-life situations for patients with stroke. Objective: This study used Rasch analysis to examine the psychometric properties of the MAL and LF-MAL in patients with stroke. Design: This is a methodological study. Methods: The MAL and LF-MAL include 2 scales: the amount of use (AOU) and the quality of movement (QOM)...

Background: Previous research suggested that physical therapy services can be influenced by patient characteristics (age, sex, socioeconomic status) or insurance status rather than their clinical need. Objective: The aim of this study was to determine whether patient-related factors (age, sex, SES) and the source of reimbursement for physical therapy services (insurance status) influence wait time for, frequency of, and duration of physical therapy for low back pain...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
Brian J Loyd, Jason M Jennings, Dana L Judd, Raymond H Kim, Pamela Wolfe, Douglas A Dennis, Jennifer E Stevens-Lapsley
Background: Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is associated with declines in hip abductor (HA) muscle strength; however, a longitudinal analysis demonstrating the influence of TKA on trajectories of HA strength change has not been conducted. Objective: The purpose of this study was to quantify changes in HA strength from pre-TKA through 3 months post-TKA and to characterize the relationship between HA strength changes and physical performance. Design: This study is a post hoc analysis of a randomized controlled trial...

REVIEW
E M Van der Weijden-Van Doornik, Dagmar E Slot, Chris Burtin, G A van der Weijden
Background: Adjuvant endocrine therapy in breast cancer has increased survival rates; however, it is not without musculoskeletal side effects. Purpose: The purpose of this review was to systematically and critically appraise the available scientific evidence concerning the effect of adjuvant endocrine treatment on grip strength in women being treated for breast cancer. Data sources and study selection: The National Library of Medicine (MEDLINE-PubMed), Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), Excerpta Medical Database by Elsevier (EMBASE), Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), and Physiotherapy Evidence Database (PEDro) were searched from inception to February 2017 for appropriate papers that could answer the focused question...

Gustavo C Machado, Chris G Maher, Paulo H Ferreira, Jane Latimer, Bart W Koes, Daniel Steffens, Manuela L Ferreira
Background: Although recurrence is common after an acute episode of low back pain, estimates of recurrence rates vary widely and predictors of recurrence remain largely unknown. Objective: The purposes of the study were to determine the 1-year incidence of recurrence in participants who recovered from an acute episode of low back pain and to identify predictors of recurrence. Design: The design was an inception cohort study nested in a case-crossover study...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Iryna Babik, James Cole Galloway, Michele A Lobo
Background: Non-object-oriented exploratory behaviors infants perform with their bodies and surfaces have been proposed to be key precursors of infants' object exploration, early learning, and future cognitive development. Little is known about the developmental trajectories of these behaviors, especially for infants born preterm. Objective: The purpose of the study was to longitudinally compare non-object-oriented exploratory behaviors performed by full-term and preterm infants...

Background: An increasing variety of short functional exercise tests are reported in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Systematic review of the psychometric properties of these exercise tests is indicated. Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine the reliability, validity, and responsiveness of short (duration < 6 min) lower extremity functional exercise tests in people with COPD. Data Sources: Five databases were searched: MEDLINE, Embase, Scopus, AMED, and CINAHL...

Background: The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching commissioned the Preparation for the Professions Program, a qualitative study of professional education in 5 professions: medicine, nursing, law, engineering, and clergy. These studies identified curricular structures, instructional practices, assessment approaches, and environmental characteristics that support the preparation of professionals and led to educational reforms. The physical therapy profession has not had any in-depth, national investigation of physical therapist education since the Catherine Worthingham studies conducted more than 50 years ago...

Sleep disturbances occur in one third of the US population, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control has deemed insufficient sleep to be a public health problem. Knowledge about sleep and skills to screen sleep disorders and to promote sleep health have been recommended for physical therapists. Furthermore, in survey studies, physical therapists overwhelmingly agree that sleep is important for health and poor sleep impairs function. Sleep is critical for the proper functioning of the body, including immune function, tissue healing, pain modulation, cardiovascular health, cognitive function, and learning and memory...
