BACKGROUND: Chronic low back pain (LBP) can be managed by exercises which should be tailored to an individual's readiness to behavioral change. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of an intervention program based on the Transtheoretical Model of behavioral change (TTM) on back muscle endurance, physical function and pain in rice farmers with chronic LBP. METHODS: In a 32-week study, 126 rice farmers were allocated to the TTM (n= 62) and non-TTM (n= 64) groups...

Waqar Ahmed Awan, Muhammad Naveed Babur, Tahir Masood
BACKGROUND: The management of De Quervain's disease is determined more by Intuition than scientific data. The choice of first line conservative option for the management of De Quervain's disease is still a topic of debate. AIM: To evaluate the effectiveness of therapeutic ultrasound with or without spica splint in the management of De Quervain's disease (DQD). DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial (RCT). SETTING: Outpatient department of Al-Nafees Medical College Hospital, Islamabad, Pakistan...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Low back pain is a common problem during pregnancy. Although the pain usually occurs in the third trimester, it might be seen in the first trimester, too. There are various types of applications for the treatment of low back pain during pregnancy. However, there is a lack of evidence for the effectiveness of each method. If there is not an obvious deficit, bed rest, exercise, conventional physiotherapy, using protective principles for the lumbar area are recommended, since the main and the only complaint is low back pain...

BACKGROUND: Lateral gliding cervical spine mobilisation is shown to improve shoulder pain, disability and function. However, despite common clinical-use, no study reports the effect of unilateral anterior-posterior (A-P) cervical mobilisation on shoulder pain and function, and particularly in patients after arthroscopic shoulder surgery. OBJECTIVE: Examine the immediate effect of single-level Grade III cervical unilateral A-P mobilisation on shoulder pain, flexion and abduction range of motion (ROM) and external rotator strength compared to placebo cervical unilateral A-P light touch pressure...

BACKGROUND: Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a commonly seen peripheral nerve mononeuropathy. Corticosteroid injection within the carpal tunnel is among the conservative treatment options. The exact mechanism of action of steroids is not fully clear; decreased inflammation surrounding nerves or tendons is thought to be the main effect. Lidocaine has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects on certain cells (monocytes, macrophages, neutrophils etc.). The aim of this study is to evaulate the efficacy of lidocaine treatment as a alternative to corticosteroid treatment in carpal tunnel syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Plantar pressure leads to stress on plantar tissue and can be seen as risk factor for metatarsal stress fractures or plantar ulcers and is associated with prolonged and complicated recurrence of existing tissue damages. A clear demarcation of a systematic raise of body load regarding its effect on plantar pressure has not been described. OBJECTIVE: Assessing plantar pressure in different conditions of body weight, comparing data to initial body weight...

#7
R Bornemann, T R Jansen, L A Otten, K Sander, D C Wirtz, R Pflugmacher
BACKGROUND: In case of complex vertebral fractures, posterior fixation is often required for correction of deformity and instability. Fixation is commonly supported by balloon kyphoplasty (BKP) anterior. A development of BKP is radiofrequency-targeted vertebral augmentation (RF-TVA), which leads to comparable results for augmentation and pain relief. OBJECTIVE: This prospective study evaluates the outcome of posterior fixation combined with RF-TVA or BKP, respectively...

PURPOSE: To investigate the relation between chondromalacia patella and the sulcus angle/trochlear depth ratio as a marker of trochlear morphology. In addition, we also planned to show the relationship between meniscus damage, subcutaneous adipose tissue thickness as a marker of obesity, patellar tilt angle and chondromalacia patella. METHODS: Patients with trauma, rheumatologic disease, a history of knee surgery and patellar variations such as patella alba and patella baja were excluded...

BACKROUND: The aim of our study is to examine effects of aerobic and Pilates exercises on disability, cognition, physical performance, balance, depression and fatigue in relapsing-remitting Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients as compared to healthy controls. METHODS: The subjects were divided as aerobic exercise (n = 26), Pilates (n = 9), and the healthy control group (n = 21). We used MSFC, physical performance, Berg balance scale, Beck depression scale, fatique impact scale...

BACKGROUND: Pain sensitivity has been negatively associated with physical activity levels. Few studies have examined associations between experimentally induced pain sensitivity and physical activity in adults with chronic low back pain and pain-free controls. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to examine associations between physical activity levels and how an individual processes pain using experimentally induced pain stimuli. METHODS: Seventy subjects (CLBP = 49; mean age = 46...

Hurler syndrome is an inherited autosomal recessive disorder of lysosomal accumulation of un-degraded glucosaminoglycan secondary to deficiency of a-L-Iduronidase enzyme. It is most severe form of Mucopolysaccharidosis with incidence of 1:100 000. It has multisystemic involvement leading to multiple deformity, disability and death within 10th years of life. A 2 year old boy presented with umbilical hernia, gross developmental delay and a progressive spinal deformity. On detailed clinical, radiological and laboratory investigation he was diagnosed as Hurler's syndrome...

STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective study in Chinese Han people. PURPOSE: To explore whether promoter polymorphisms of matrix metalloproteinases-3 (MMP-3) (rs3025058) and interleukin-6(IL-6) (rs1800795) genes are associated to AIS gender bias. METHODS: A total of 200 patients (100 boys and 100 girls) with AIS and 200 healthy age-matched adolescents were recruited from July 2008 to August 2013 in our scoliosis center. All AIS patients had Cobb angles larger than 20°, average 43 ± 3...

BACKGROUND: Radiographic examination is the gold standard to evaluate spine curves, but ionising radiations limit routine use. Non-invasive methods, such as skin-surface goniometer (IncliMed®) should be used instead. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate intra- and interrater reliability to assess sagittal curves and mobility of the spine with IncliMed®. METHODS: a reliability study on agonistic football players. Thoracic kyphosis, lumbar lordosis and mobility of the spine were assessed by IncliMed®...

BACKGROUND: According to previously conducted studies, people with Low Back Pain (LBP) present with static balance deficiencies. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study was to compare static, as well as dynamic balance ability between Chronic Low Back Pain (CLBP) and healthy subjects. METHODS: The CLBP group comprised 17 subjects and the control group of 16 subjects, matched for age, BMI and gender. The protocol applied compared the balance ability when performing the Star Excursion Balance Test (SEBT) and the static 1-leg stance position...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of three injections of standard linear HA versus single injection of lightly cross-linking HA in patients with knee OA. METHODS: Forty subjects were randomized into two groups. The first group received single dose intraarticular injection of 4 ml lightly cross-linking sodium hyaluronate (Monovisc), and the second group received three consecutive intraarticular injections of 2.5 ml standard linear sodium hyaluronate (Adant) with one week intervals...

BACKGROUND: Lateral epicondylitis (LE) is a painful condition that affects the tendinous tissue of the lateral epicondyle of the humerus and leads to loss of function of the affected limb. Therefore it can have a major impact on the patient's social and personal life. Many treatments are recommended for lateral epicondylitis; unfortunately the evidence is limited. OBJECTIVES: The aim of study was to investigate the effect of kinesio taping (KT) on pain, grip strength and function in patients LE...

REVIEW
Zexin Chen, Yunxian Yu
OBJECTIVE: The objective of this meta-analysis was to systematically assess the association between aortic calcification (AC) and fractures. METHOD: Relevant studies were identified through searching PubMed, EMBASE and Cochrane databases before August 2014. Two investigators extracted data independently from the included studies. A random-effects model was derived to composite the pooled HRs or ORs for association of aortic calcification with fractures. RESULTS: A total of 15 articles (21927 subjects) were included in the final meta-analyses...
