BACKGROUND: Manual physical therapists (MPTs) working in primary care get limited information about patient's courses of (chronic) low back pain (LBP). Identification of kinesiophobia is mostly based on clinical perception. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between the scores with which manual physical therapists in a primary care setting identify kinesiophobia in patients with low back pain, and the patients' self-reported measures of kinesiophobia...

Hysterical paralysis, a type of conversion disorder, presents with the loss of motor or sensory function. Although this disorder is nonorganic, it resembles the symptoms of a structural disease of the nervous system. It is generally associated with a traumatic or social event. The patients often require excessive testing and comprehensive assessment in exposing this psychogenic ailment. We reported the most dramatic type of conversion disorder, hysterical paralysis, in which full recovery was obtained with early recognition and rehabilitation approach including faradic stimulation...

The main reason for waist and back pain in patients with gigantomasty is increased thoracic kyphosis and lumber lordosis. These symptoms and abnormal spinal angulations regress after reduction mammoplasty operations. However, the effect of chronic mechanical stress caused by gigantomasty on the spinal degenerative process is not clear yet. In this study with computed tomography it is shown that degenerative spondylosis is more widespread and severe in patients with large breasts.

BACKGROUND: The potential to accurately perform cervical movements during more challenging tasks might be of importance to prevent dysfunctional motion characteristics. Although sensorimotor function during dual-task conditions are of increasing interest in biomedical and rehabilitation research, effects of such conditions on movement consistency of the neck have not yet been investigated. OBJECTIVE: In this crossover MiSpEx(Medicine in Spine Exercise)-diagnostic study, we aimed to explore differences between single and dual-task conditions on cervical movement variability...

BACKGROUND: Cervical mobilization and manipulation have been shown to improve cervical range of motion and pain. Cervical rotatory thrust manipulation has been associated with adverse patient reaction and damage to the V3 segment of the vertebral artery (VA). OBJECTIVE: To document and describe the effects of an upper cervical (UC) traction based mobilization on participants with restricted and painful cervical rotation and to document if the mobilization changed blood flow velocity through the vertebral artery...

BACKGROUND: Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) arising in benign schwannoma with multiple intraosseous spinal metastasis is extremely rare, having a highly aggressive progression and poor prognosis. In such cases, the malignant cells of MPNST usually have an epithelioid morphology. Here, the authors present a very rare case of spindle cell type MPNST arising in benign schwannoma. CASE: A 47-year-old woman had a history of wide marginal excision of right buttock spindle cell sarcoma previously...

INTRODUCTION: Myofascial pain is a common impairment treated with various manual interventions including spinal thrust manipulation and stretching; however, the comparative efficacy of each intervention is uncertain. Therefore, the purpose of this investigation was to evaluate thrust manipulation targeting the cervicothoracic junction compared to a manual stretch of the upper trapezius muscle on cervical range of motion and upper trapezius pressure pain thresholds (PPTs). METHODS: Healthy participants with no significant history of neck pain were randomized into a thrust manipulation group, a stretching group, or a control group...

BACKGROUND: Studies have shown late post-operative physical disability and residual pain in patients following lumbar disc surgery despite growing evidence of its beneficial effects. Therefore, rehabilitation is required to minimise the late post-operative complications. OBJECTIVE: To assess the feasibility of manipulative rehabilitation to improve late post-operative outcomes. METHODS: Twenty-one patients aged 25-65 years undergoing lumbar microdiscectomy were randomly assigned to the rehabilitation group (n = 14) or active control group (n = 7) by simple randomisation...

BACKGROUND: Inconsistencies in the literature concerning the effect of neck pain have led to a lack of understanding concerning the complete pathophysiology of neck pain. While the effect of neck pain on motor function as measured by active range of motion and isometric neck strength is well documented the effect of neck pain on sensory measures such as tactical acuity and neck reposition error (NRE) remain poorly understood. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate a combined sensorimotor evaluation to explore the potential benefits of incorporating both sensory and motor task into a physical evaluation of neck pain suffers to gain an added knowledge of the complete pathophysiology of their health status...
