INTRODUCTION: Recovering the ability to walk is an important goal of physical therapy for patients who have survived cerebrovascular accident (stroke). Orthotics can provide a reduction in plantar flexion of the ankle, leading to greater stability in the stance phase of the gait cycle. Postural insoles can be used to reorganize the tone of muscle chains, which exerts an influence on postural control through correction reflexes. The aim of the present study was to perform kinematic and spatiotemporal analyses of gait in stroke survivors with hemiparesis during postural insole usage...

BACKGROUND: It has been established that Hyper-pronation of the foot may lead to postural changes in the lower limbs, with a resultant pelvic ante-version, and a subsequent risk of development of low back pain. However, the association between the presence of a hyper-pronated foot and the severity of disability in low back pain is currently not known. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to examine whether the presence of a hyper-pronated foot has any impact on the degree of severity of disability (functional status) in patients with non-specific low back pain...

Dynamic joint stiffness represents the resistance that a joint opposes to an applied moment. Stiffness arises in conditions of joint laxity, instability and increased co-contraction and is commonly utilized as a means to stabilize the joint. The knee joint seems to be crucial for determining the walking pattern. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between the gait pattern, globally quantified by the Gait Profile Score (GPS), which indicates the 'quality' of a particular walking strategy, and knee dynamic joint stiffness (Kk) in children with diplegia...

AmirAli Jafarnezhadgero, Morteza Madadi-Shad, Fatemeh Salari Esker, D G E Robertson
Gait asymmetry is defined as a loss of perfect agreement between the dominant and non-dominant lower limbs. Conflicting results from gait asymmetry studies may be due to different definitions of asymmetry, different research methods, and/or different variables and formulas used for asymmetry calculation. As a result, this makes it difficult to compare joint asymmetry values between studies. An accurate and precise understanding of asymmetry during human walking is an important step towards developing enhanced rehabilitation protocols for pathological gait...

Katharine Spens, Lance Bird, Philip Bright
BACKGROUND: Caesarean section is common in the UK with post-procedural adhesions causing life-long clinical symptoms and impacting future pregnancies. This study's aim was to explore associations between these surgical adhesions, via transabdominal ultrasound findings, and perceived symptoms. METHOD: Females demonstrating 1-3 transverse, lower-segment Caesareans were included. Visceral slide transabdominal ultrasound elicited positive adhesions (<1 cm movement) and negative adhesions (>1 cm movement)...

BACKGROUND: Deficiency in hip girdle neuromuscular control can cause exaggerated Dynamic Knee Valgus (DKV) which afflicts the knee joint and lead to knee injuries especially ACL injury in sports. Though Kinesio taping (KT) is known to improve function, stability and proprioception, the evidence is inconclusive on its effectiveness in athletes. We hypothesized that kinesio taping could enhance neuromuscular control of the hip girdle there by causing a reduction in DKV. AIM/OBJECTIVE: To determine whether KT on Gluteus medius can correct exaggerated dynamic knee valgus and improves hip abductor strength when compared to sham KT...

Scott W Cheatham, Kyle R Stull
BACKGROUND: University and collegiate education of the human myofascial system is commonly taught in basic science courses such as anatomy. Allied health programs may expand upon these concepts by teaching interventions such as myofascial release in clinical education courses. Self-myofascial release (SMR) with a device such as a foam roller is an emerging intervention that has become popular among clinicians and active individuals. Currently, it's unknown if allied health programs provide SMR education...
