STUDY DESIGN: Randomized clinical trial. INTRODUCTION: Eccentric exercise (EE) was shown to be an effective treatment in tendinopathies. However, the evidence of its effectiveness in subacromial syndrome (SS) is scarce. Moreover, consensus has not been reached on whether best results for SS are obtained by means of EE with or without pain. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of this is to compare the effect on pain, active range of motion (AROM), and shoulder function of an exercise protocol performed with pain <40 mm Visual Analog Scale (VAS) and without pain, in patients with SS...

STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional. INTRODUCTION: The Functional Dexterity Test (FDT) is a timed pegboard hand dexterity test. Normative data have been developed primarily in adults with some studies in the pediatric population. The present study will complement the existing pediatric data and make the FDT a stronger assessment for use in this population. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The primary aim of this study was to collect normative data in typically developing children aged 3-5 years in the Greater Montreal area; the secondary aim was to evaluate the intrarater and interrater reliabilities of the FDT...

STUDY DESIGN: Systematic review. INTRODUCTION: Patient adherence to orthosis wear and/or prescribed exercises improves functional outcome after acute injury and can prevent deformities, contractures, and reinjury of tissues. This is the first systematic review to review the evidence of the effectiveness of interventions to improve treatment adherence in children and adults with acute or chronic upper limb injuries or conditions. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of this study is to establish the effectiveness of interventions to improve hand therapy adherence in people with upper limb conditions and to report on outcome measures used when reporting adherence...

STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive, cross-sectional. INTRODUCTION: Intimate partner violence (IPV) may involve physical, psychological, or sexual abuse. Although hand injuries are reported as common sequelae of IPV, there is limited attention to this issue in hand therapy research reports or practice recommendations. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The primary aim is to describe the attitudes and beliefs of hand therapists (HTs) about IPV issues. METHODS: A sample of 189 HT completed a standardized survey investigating perceptions regarding issues pertaining to IPV...

STUDY DESIGN: Systematic review INTRODUCTION: Trigger finger (TF) is a common condition in the hand. The primary purpose of this systematic review was to evaluate the current evidence to determine the efficacy of orthotic management of TF. A secondary purpose was to identify the characteristics of the orthotic management. The tertiary purpose of this study was to ascertain if the studies used a patient-reported outcome to assess gains from the patient's perspective. METHODS: All studies including randomized controlled trials, prospective, and retrospective cohort studies were included in this review due to limited high-level evidence...

STUDY DESIGN: A case series was carried out. INTRODUCTION: There is a lack of evidence exploring the effectiveness of group exercise classes for people with nonspecific shoulder pain (NSSP). Also, there is a lack of research that measures potential reductions in thoracic kyphosis after exercise interventions in people with NSSP. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: To observe changes in shoulder pain, disability, and thoracic kyphosis in 2 groups of people with NSSP, after 2 different types of group exercise classes...

STUDY DESIGN: Survey. INTRODUCTION: Rotator cuff syndrome (RCS) is one of the most common musculoskeletal disorders reported in workers. The functional incapacity related to RCS may vary according to the sociodemographic context and to the medical management. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of this is to analyze the RCS-related functional incapacity assessed by the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) questionnaires in workers according to their sociodemographic characteristics and the use of care...

STUDY DESIGN: Case series. INTRODUCTION: A salvaged limb is one that has undergone a major traumatic injury, followed by repeated surgical attempts in order to avoid amputation. Psychological recovery for individuals with lower extremity limb salvage has been examined in a number of studies. However, psychosocial reactions for individuals with upper extremity (UE) limb salvage are understudied in the literature. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of this study was to explore the process of psychosocial adaptation for 3 trauma cases after UE limb salvage...

INTRODUCTION: The primary purpose of this scoping review was to describe the nature and extent of the published research that assesses the relationship between psychological features and patient-reported outcome following surgery or rehabilitation of upper extremity disease or injury. METHODS: Twenty-two included studies were examined for quantitative study design, outcome measure, inclusion/exclusion criteria, follow-up and recruitment strategy. Patient population and psychological assessment tools were examined for validity...

STUDY DESIGN: Case series. INTRODUCTION: Upper extremity (UE) trauma and subsequent immobilization affects functional performance. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: Determine the usefulness and feasibility of unilateral hand training (UHT) on improving functional performance in patients with UE trauma.

STUDY DESIGN: Grounded theory. INTRODUCTION: The broader perspective of health offered by the World Health Organization's International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health has had a significant bearing on how we view the measurement of health outcomes after surgical or therapy interventions for peripheral nerve disorders affecting the hand. The value of the patient's perspective is now recognized and outcomes which reflect this are being advocated in the clinical management and support of this population...

STUDY DESIGN: Crossover repeated-measure design. INTRODUCTION: Scapular dyskinesis rehabilitation programs that focus on inhibiting upper trapezius (UT) and activating the lower trapezius (LT) may assist in restoring scapular movements. We hypothesized that taping may be able to normalize scapular movements and associated muscular recruitment. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of this study was to investigate the immediate effects of kinesio taping over trapezius on scapular kinematics and muscular activation in different dyskinesis patterns...

STUDY DESIGN: A male patient with partial hand amputation of his nondominant hand, with only stumps of the proximal phalanx of the first and fifth finger, was evaluated. The performance of using two alternative 3D printed silicone-embedded personalized prostheses was evaluated using the quantitative Jebsen Hand Function Test. INTRODUCTION: Custom design and fabrication of 3D printed prostheses appears to be a good technique for improving the clinical treatment of patients with partial hand amputations...

STUDY DESIGN: Blinded randomized controlled trial. INTRODUCTION: Patients with Parkinson disease (PD) have sensory problems, but there is still no accurate understanding of the effects of sensory-motor interventions on PD. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: To investigate the effects of sensory-motor training (SMT) on hand and upper extremity sensory and motor function in patients with PD. METHODS: Forty patients with PD were allocated to the SMT group or the control group (CG) (mean ages ± standard deviation: SMT, 61...
