BACKGROUND: The recovery of the functional limb mobility of patients with cerebral damages can take great benefit of the role offered by proprioceptive rehabilitation. Recently have been developed a special Regent Suit (RS) for rehabilitative applications. Actually, there are preliminary studies which describes the effects of RS on gait recovery of stroke patients in acute stage, but none in chronic stage. Moreover, it is known that motor recovery does not always reflect improvements of the muscle activity and coactivity...

AIM: The effect of 10-week core stability training (CST) program on balance in women with relapsing-remitting Multiple Sclerosis (MS) according to Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) score. METHODS: Sixty-nine MS women were randomly assigned into two groups as the intervention group and the control group. These groups were categorized into three subgroups according to the EDSS as follows: subgroup A (EDSS 2.5 to 3.5), subgroup B (EDSS 3.5 to 4.5), and subgroup C (EDSS 4...

BACKGROUND: The management of acute low back pain (LBP) is directed to obtain early and maximum relief of the local and regional pain, and to improve mobility and physical function. AIM: To evaluate the effects of a 4 ml-volume diclofenac 75mg/thiocolchicoside 4mg fixed dose combination (FDC) for intramuscular (IM) injection (test) compared to the separate injection of the two components (reference). DESIGN: Phase III, randomized, controlled, double-blind (blind-observer), parallel-group...

INTRODUCTION: Spastic paresis is a common feature of an upper motor neuron impairment caused by stroke, brain injury, multiple sclerosis and other CNS disorders. Existing national and international guidelines for the treatment of adult spastic paresis tend to focus on the treatment of muscle overactivity rather than the comprehensive approach to care, which may require life-long management. Person-Centred Care is increasingly adopted by healthcare systems in a shift of focus from 'disease-oriented' towards 'person-centred' medicine...

BACKGROUND: Active performance is crucial for motor learning, and, together with motivation, is believed to be associated with a better rehabilitation outcome. Virtual reality (VR) is an innovative approach to engage and motivate patients during training. There is promising evidence for its efficiency in retraining upper limb function. However, there is insufficient proof for its effectiveness in gait training. AIM: To evaluate the acceptability of robot-assisted gait training (RAGT) with and without VR and the feasibility of potential outcome measures to guide the planning of a larger randomized controlled trial (RCT)...

BACKGROUND: Spasticity and spasms are distressing features of the upper motor neuron syndrome (UMNS) following spinal cord injuries (SCI) or multiple sclerosis (MS), and have common therapeutic implications. Despite an increase of antispastic drugs and strategies, sometimes up to the surgical implant of intrathecal baclofen pump, some patients still complain of disabling spasms, which poses diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. Although clinically similar, flexor spasms due to pyramidal tract disruption must be clearly differentiated from periodic limb movements (PLM), often accompanying restless leg syndrome (RLS) and occurring during sleep...

BACKGROUND: Cerebral palsy is a group of movement and posture development disorders. 90% of this population has gait impairment, often due to the presence of spasticity. A number of studies emphasize the importance of combined physical therapy with botulinum toxin A treatment. However, no consensus can be reached concerning the content of the physiotherapy programme after treatment with botulinum toxin A. AIM: The purpose of the present study was to investigate, through a systematic review of the literature, the effects of physiotherapeutic intervention on gait after botulinum toxin application in children with cerebral palsy...

BACKGROUND: Exercise therapy is an effective component of fibromyalgia (FM) treatment. However, it is important to know the effects and specificities of the different types of exercise: muscle stretching and resistance training. AIM: To verify and compare the effectiveness of muscle stretching exercise and resistance training for symptoms and quality of life in FM patients. DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial. SETTING: Physical therapy service, FM outpatient clinic...

BACKGROUND: Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is effective in the treatment of calcific tendinopathy of the rotator cuff, eliciting an analgesic/anti-inflammatory action and promoting tissue regeneration. Kinesio taping (KT), another recently-introduced rehabilitative tool, exerts an analgesic and biomechanical action on joints and muscles. ESWT and KT may have a synergic effect when used in combination, but the effectiveness of the association has not been established. AIM: To test if the association of KT with ESWT is superior to ESWT alone in the treatment of rotator cuff calcific tendinopathy...

INTRODUCTION: Adult Scoliosis (AS) is the most common spine deformity in adults. Back pain is the main symptom leading patients to seek medical consultation. Stabilization exercise has been shown effective for reducing back pain. No literature review has examined the effects of such exercises in adults with scoliosis. OBJECTIVES: To systematically review the effects of stabilization exercises on back pain, disability and quality of life in adults with scoliosis...

Rehabilitation aims to optimize people's lived experience of health or functioning. A comprehensive understanding of people's functioning is thus fundamental for rehabilitation clinicians and scientists. Over the past ten years it has been shown that graphical modelling is a promising technique for modelling data on people's functioning. It can contribute to our understanding of the complex associations between domains of functioning and the identification of potential targets for rehabilitation interventions both at the level of the person and the environment...

BACKGROUND: Driving is a complex ability requiring a broad range of motor, cognitive- behavioural and visual skills that may be impaired after severe Acquired Brain Injury (sABI). Resumption of driving is perceived as a major need by patients, being closely linked to personal autonomy, work and social activities. AIM: The objective of this study was to identify a short battery of neuropsychological tests with predictive value with regard to safe return to driving after sABI...

BACKGROUND: Cognitive reserve (CR) can be considered an active expression of brain resilience in response to damage. Several studies have shown the influence of CR on cognitive impairment and its relationship with cognitive function in Parkinson's disease (PD). AIM: To show if CR influences the effectiveness of balance rehabilitation in PD patients who performed a conventional rehabilitative treatment. DESIGN: Observational longitudinal study...

BACKGROUND: Amputation of a lower-limb results in a severe decrease of functional mobility that deeply alters independent living. Motor imagery (MI) refers to the mental representation of an action without engaging its actual execution. The repetitive use of MI has been shown to contribute to promote motor recovery and phantom-limb pain alleviation. AIM: Given the importance of invoking accurate images to benefit from MI practice, and considering the link between motor capacities and MI, the present study investigated the effect of a rehabilitation program on MI ability in patients with lower-limb amputation...

BACKGROUND: COPD patients experience a sustained deterioration of several capacities. Those with severe COPD undergo a considerable decline in their physical and functional capacities, but pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) is used to reduce the weakness of such patients. To date, neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) has been used in acute COPD patients but NMES superimposed onto voluntary muscular contraction has not been tested in COPD patients. AIM: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of superimposed NMES on the cardiorespiratory performance and functionality of severe COPD patients undergoing a home-based rehabilitation program...
