STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional survey. INTRODUCTION: Multifactorial risk factor screening and treatment is needed for subsequent falls/osteoporotic fractures prevention (SFOFP), given the elevated risk among patients with distal radius fracture (DRF). PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The primary objective was to describe hand therapists' knowledge and clinical practice patterns for assessment, treatment, referral, and education with respect to SFOFP for patients with DRF older than 45 years...

Ann M Lucado, R Barry Dale, Joshua Vincent, Joseph M Day
STUDY DESIGN: Systematic review. INTRODUCTION: No consensus exists as to which are the most effective methods to treat the symptoms associated with lateral elbow tendinopathy (LET). Research has suggested that joint mobilizations may assist in the recovery of patients with LET. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: To determine if joint mobilizations are effective in improving pain, grip strength, and disability in adults with LET. METHODS: Searches in 3 databases were performed to identify relevant clinical trials...

STUDY DESIGN: Prospective cohort study. INTRODUCTION: Diabetes is reported to adversely affect outcomes; however, its effect on distal radial fractures (DRF) is not well examined. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: This study investigated the effect of diabetes on pain, hand function, physical health status, grip strength, and wrist and forearm range of motion among patients with DRF. METHODS: A total of 479 patients with DRF were classified into patients with and without diabetes based on self-report...

STUDY DESIGN: Systematic review. INTRODUCTION: Mirror therapy is a treatment used to address hand function following a stroke. Measurement of outcomes using appropriate assessment tools is crucial; however, many assessment options exist. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of this study is to systematically review outcome measures that are used to assess hand function following mirror therapy after stroke and, in addition, to identify the psychometric and descriptive properties of the included measures and through the linking process determine if the outcome measures are representative of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF)...

DESIGN: Case study. INTRODUCTION: Hand therapists are often called upon to provide treatment for thumb carpometacarpal joint osteoarthritis. PURPOSE: These 2 case studies present a client-centered approach in the selection of orthoses and joint protection strategies for patients with thumb carpometacarpal joint osteoarthritis. At baseline, the participants presented with pain, decreased active range of motion, decreased pinch strength, and limitations in activity and participation...

STUDY DESIGN: Case report. INTRODUCTION: Conventional rehabilitation alone may not be effective in reducing symptoms in some patients with complex regional pain syndrome. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: This case report portrays the benefits of a new tailored rehabilitation program for a 39-year-old patient suffering from upper limb complex regional pain syndrome with severe touch-evoked pain (static mechanical allodynia). METHODS: This patient had previously received conventional rehabilitation for a year and a half including physical and nonsurgical medical interventions that did not improve symptoms or function...

STUDY DESIGN: Narrative Review. INTRODUCTION: Hand surgeons and therapists play an important role in the early identification of children at risk of developing chronic or recurrent pain after an upper extremity injury. Early identification of children at risk of developing a pain syndrome is critical because their physical, psychological, and/or social functioning may decline quickly without proper management due to the multidimensional nature of pain. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: This article outlines one approach to evaluating upper extremity pain in children to help identify those with, or at risk of, chronic pain...

STUDY DESIGN: Implementation paper. INTRODUCTION: Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is relatively a common condition in the distal radius fracture (DRF) population with the effects resulting in many sufferers experiencing persistent pain and impairment 2 to 6 years after onset. Prevention is desirable as there is no known proven cure. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: This study demonstrates how knowledge about CRPS and its prevention generated through iterative studies can be translated into practice in the workplace and how an interdisciplinary community of practice with therapists at the core can effect change...

INTRODUCTION: Peripheral nerve injuries (PNIs) cause both structural and functional brain changes that may be associated with significant sensorimotor abnormalities and pain. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The aim of this narrative review is to provide hand therapists an overview of PNI-induced neuroplasticity and to explain how the brain changes following PNI, repair, and during rehabilitation. METHODS: Toward this goal, we review key aspects of neuroplasticity and neuroimaging and discuss sensory testing techniques used to study neuroplasticity in PNI patients...

STUDY DESIGN: Narrative review. INTRODUCTION: There are a variety of treatments with demonstrated effectiveness for the management of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). However given the variability in symptom presentation in this population, therapists may be unsure what treatments would be most effective for individual clients. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: To present a brief synthesis of the literature and propose a rehabilitation version of a mechanism-specific management algorithm to guide personalized treatment of CRPS...

STUDY DESIGN: Literature review. INTRODUCTION: Pain is a subjective experience that results from the modulation of nociception conveyed to the brain via the nervous system. Perception of pain takes place when potential or actual noxious stimuli are appraised as threats of injury. This appraisal is influenced by one's cognitions and emotions based on her/his pain-related experiences, which are processed in the forebrain and limbic areas of the brain. Unarguably, patients' psychological factors such as cognitions (eg, pain catastrophizing), emotions (eg, depression), and pain-related behaviors (eg, avoidance) can influence perceived pain intensity, disability, and treatment outcomes...

Christine B Novak
Cold intolerance after nerve injury can be severe and has been associated with high levels of pain and disability. This article provides an overview of the assessment and nonoperative management of cold-induced symptoms after peripheral nerve injury. A comprehensive evaluation should include both objective measures such as skin temperatures and subjective tools to assess the patient's perspective and impact of the symptoms. Management of the patient with cold intolerance remains challenging and should include adaptive strategies, warming interventions, and desensitization conditioning programs to minimize cold-induced pain and hyperresponses...

STUDY DESIGN: Reliability study. INTRODUCTION: Quantifying compensatory movements during work-related tasks may help to prevent musculoskeletal complaints in individuals with upper limb absence. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: (1) To develop a qualitative scoring system for rating compensatory shoulder and trunk movements in upper limb prosthesis wearers during the performance of functional capacity evaluation tests adjusted for use by 1-handed individuals (functional capacity evaluation-one handed [FCE-OH]); (2) to examine the interrater and intrarater reliability of the scoring system; and (3) to assess its feasibility...
