OBJECTIVES: Chronic non-specific low back pain (CNLBP) is a prevalent problem among athletes that can cause long-lasting disability and time lost from sporting activities. Thus far, a variety of methods have been suggested to address this problem, including spinal manipulation (SM) and Kinesio Tape® (KT). The aim of this study was to investigate whether adding KT to SM can provide any extra effect in athletes with CNLBP or not. METHOD: Forty-two athletes (21males, 21females) with CNLBP were randomized into two groups of SM (n = 21) and SM plus KT (n = 21)...

BACKGROUND: Neck pain is a common musculoskeletal complaint in computer users due to prolonged static or awkward work postures. It has been shown that pathogenesis of neck pain is associated with scapular movement impairment syndromes. However, there is a dearth of literature in treatment based on these syndromes. AIM: To identify the effects of movement impairment-based treatment in the management of mechanical neck pain, in computer users. METHODS: In the present study, twenty-seven subjects were recruited...

It is believed that Quadriceps strength training may reduce pain and improve functional activity in patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA). This improvement is generally attributed to an increase in quadriceps strength. This study investigated whether quadriceps muscle strength increases with decreasing pain, improving functional activity in knee OA. Twenty-four patients with knee OA participated in an 8-week treatment protocol including traditional physical therapy and strength training 3 sessions per week...

STUDY DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial. OBJECTIVES: To improve hip function by an additional targeted mobilization and strength training of the hip muscles within the first postoperative week following a total hip arthroplasty (THA) in contrast to standard physiotherapy. BACKGROUND: The aim of early postoperative physiotherapy is to improve the functioning of the artificial hip joint as well as the restoration of mobility and independence of the patient...

OBJECTIVE: Therapeutic lateral knee joint muscle taping potentially offers a low-risk, economical and effective alternative for the clinical treatment of light to moderate knee overload, due to misalignment in patients with genu varum. In this study, we aimed at investigating the immediate effect of lateral knee joint muscular kinesio taping on lower limb joint powers, during the stance phase of walking, in individuals with genu varum. METHODS: Fifteen male subjects with genu varum misalignment (age: 24...

INTRODUCTION: Evaluating responsiveness has an important role in design and interpretation of the interventional studies. The aim was to estimate the responsiveness and minimally important difference (MID) of postural performance measures following balance rehabilitation in patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS, n = 38). METHODS: Postural measures were evaluated at baseline and after 4 weeks intervention. Laboratory-based measures were center of pressure parameters...

BACKGROUND: Mobilisation with movement treatment techniques have been used to increase the range of motion following pathologies associated with shoulder, elbow and ankle joints. Lack of posterior tibial glide and reflex muscle inhibition are common physical impairments in individuals with post-traumatic stiffness of the knee joint. Current evidence is lacking for the benefits of mobilisation with movement treatment techniques for the knee joint disorders. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the short-term effects of mobilisation with movement techniques following post-traumatic stiffness of the knee joint...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to investigate the possible alterations in postural control during upright standing in subjects with non-specific chronic low back pain and the effect of Kinesio taping on the postural control. METHODS: Twenty subjects with non-specific chronic low back pain and twenty healthy subjects participated in this study. The center of pressure excursion was evaluated before the intervention for both groups, and immediately after intervention for the low back pain group...

BACKGROUND: The deterioration in the somatosensory and motor systems observed with increasing age can cause balance problems. Studies have shown that the use of infrapatellar bandages can enhance proprioception and improve postural balance. AIMS: To evaluate the effect of an infrapatellar bandage on static balance and mobility in elderly female fallers and non-fallers. METHODS: Forty older women (20 fallers and 20 non-fallers) were evaluated...

Dominique Claire Leibbrandt, Quinette Abigail Louw
INTRODUCTION: Anterior knee pain (AKP) is a common condition frequently causing young, athletic patients to attend sports rehabilitation centres. Abnormal biomechanics are thought to contribute towards the development and chronicity of the condition. Gait analysis is commonly used to identify abnormal biomechanics in subjects with AKP, however the reliability of these measurements are unknown. Therefore, the aim of this study was to quantify the test retest reliability of hip, knee and ankle kinematics during gait in an AKP population so the true effects of an intervention can be established...

The purpose of this study was to compare the activation of deep abdominal and spine stabilizer muscles of subjects with and without Pilates experience. Twenty-three subjects were divided into a no-experience group (n = 13) and an experienced group (n = 10). The subjects performed three 12-s drawing-in maneuver trials at 50% TrA/IO maximal voluntary contraction (MVC). The experienced group presented greater activation of both muscles than the no-experience group (62% vs. 32% MVC for the TrA/IO, and 52% vs...

OBJECTIVE: To analyse the influence of belly dance on the quality of life, fatigue, and depressive symptoms in women with breast cancer. METHODS: Pilot study, with a design of non-randomised clinical trial study, analysing 19 women, with 8 allocated in the experimental group and 11 in the control group. The experimental group underwent 12 weeks of belly dance classes, with a frequency of twice a week and duration of 60 min for each lesson. Data collection was made through the use of questionnaires containing general information, quality of life (EORTC QLQ-BR23), fatigue (Piper Fatigue Scale) and depressive symptoms (BECK's Depression Inventory) applied on baseline and after intervention...

INTRODUCTION: The importance of physical exercise for patients with fibromyalgia (FM) is very clear in the literature. Dancing is a type of aerobic exercise that has great acceptance. In addition to the beneficial effects of aerobic exercise, Zumba works on motor coordination and also has socializing as a part that should be included in patients with fibromyalgia. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effectiveness of Zumba dancing in improving pain, functional capacity, quality of sleep and quality of life of women with fibromyalgia...

EDITORIAL
Matt Wallden, Paul Chek
In recent times there have been, concurrently, increasing volumes of research questioning whether biomechanics have any relevance at all to musculoskeletal medicine; and a blossoming field of Pain Science identifying that perception of, and context for, pain is often more important than the tissues generating the pain in the first instance. From the academic world to social media, much excitement has been generated in supporting this new direction. However, most of the great work arising from the Pain Science arena is focused on pain itself and on the patients' conscious beliefs around their pain...

INTRODUCTION: Several studies have been developed to determine which type of muscular action (isometric, isotonic and isokinetic) elicits more gains in functional strength and muscle mass. The comparisons between training outcomes are inconclusive due to lack of exercise standardization. OBJECTIVE: To compare muscle strength, mass, and functional performance in response to isometric, isotonic, and isokinetic contractions, when training loads (volume and intensity) are equated...

The aim of this study was to determine the effects of Pilates-based mat exercises on functional autonomy and life satisfaction among elderly women. A randomized controlled trial was conducted in Caxias do Sul, Brazil in 2015, in which 61 healthy older women were randomized into two groups (experimental group, EG = 31 participants with 64.25 mean years of age, SD = 0.14, and a control group, CG = 30 participants, 63.75 mean years of age; SD = 0.08). The EG participants performed the mat Pilates twice per week, 60-min per session...
