REVIEW
Yi Zhu, Yujie Yang, Jianan Li
Spasticity is a motor disorder encountered after upper motor neuron lesions. It adversely affects quality of life in most patients and causes long-term burden of care and has significant financial implications. The effect of conventional therapies for spasticity including physical therapy, surgery, and pharmacotherapy are not always satisfying because of the short-term effects or side effects in some patients. Acupuncture is a part of traditional medicine originating from China. It has been used to resolve functional recovery problems after central nervous system injury for many years in Asian countries and is increasingly popular in western countries...

Activity-dependent processes addressing the central nervous system (CNS) and musculoskeletal structures are critical for maintaining motor performance. Chronic reduction in activity, whether due to a sedentary lifestyle or extended bed rest, results in impaired performance in motor tasks and thus decreased quality of life. In the first part of this paper, we give a narrative review of the effects of hypoactivity on the neuromuscular system and behavioral outcomes. Motor impairments arise from a combination of factors including altered muscle properties, impaired afferent input, and plastic changes in neural structure and function throughout the nervous system...

REVIEW
Alexis Lheureux, Anne Berquin
This semi-systematic review compared 2 prognostic questionnaires about back pain (STarT Back Screening Tool and Örebro Musculoskeletal Pain Screening Questionnaire) in terms of prognostic power and clinical aims, to guide the healthcare provider in choosing a questionnaire. By its large inclusion criteria, our study is the broadest on the topic. Although the 2 questionnaires present good and equivalent predictive power, we highlight important differences between them in clinical objectives and usefulness, which may be the most important to consider when deciding which tool to use...

REVIEW
B Chi, B Chau, E Yeo, P Ta
BACKGROUND: Treatment of spinal cord injury (SCI)-associated neuropathic pain is challenging, with limited efficacy and no definitive options, and SCI patients often show resistance to pharmacologic treatment. Virtual reality (VR) therapy is a non-invasive, non-pharmacologic alternative with minimal adverse effects. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of VR therapy on SCI-associated neuropathic pain in a systematic review. METHODS: Articles needed to 1) be written in English; 2) include adult subjects, with at least half the study population with a SCI diagnosis; 3) involve any form of VR therapy; and 4) assess neuropathic pain by quantitative outcome measures...

BACKGROUND: The effects of physical activity (PA) in disease prevention and therapy have well-known effects on lower-limb osteoarthritis (OA), decreasing pain and improving function. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to describe the level and factors affecting PA practices of people with knee OA. DESIGN: Prospective epidemiological study. SETTING: In all, 548 people with knee OA were interviewed by use of self-administered anonymous questionnaires...

REVIEW
F Genêt, P Denormandie, M A Keenan
Since ancient times, the aim of orthopedic surgery has been to correct limb and joint deformities, including those resulting from central nervous system lesions. Recent developments in the treatment of spasticity have led to changes in concepts and management strategies. The increase in life expectancy has increased the functional needs of patients. Orthopedic surgery, along with treatments for spasticity, improves the functional capacity of patients with neuro-orthopaedic disorders, improving their autonomy...

OBJECTIVE: Ankle sprains are common injuries that may lead to long-term morbidity. Individuals with obesity are at increased risk for ankle sprains; however, prognostic associations between body mass index (BMI) and recovery are less well understood. This study investigated whether BMI status affects recovery from ankle sprains. METHODS: We included individuals≥16 years old with grade 1 or 2 ankle sprains who sought emergency department treatment in Kingston, Ontario, Canada...

BACKGROUND: Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are at increased risk of falls, with potential adverse outcomes. There is a considerable variation across studies regarding the prevalence of falls and its correlation with clinical data, disease-related outcomes and physical performance tests. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of falls and its association with clinical data, disease-related outcomes and physical performance tests...

BACKGROUND: Flap surgery for deep pelvic pressure ulcers (PPUs) has been found effective, but the recurrence rate remains high and few risk factors have been identified. OBJECTIVE: We evaluated risk factors for PU recurrence after primary flap surgery in people with spinal cord injury (SCI). PATIENTS AND METHODS: This observational retrospective study based on medical charts included all individuals with SCI who underwent primary flap surgery for a PPU in the Hérault department in France between 2006 and 2014...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: A wide range of adjunct therapies after botulinum toxin administration have been proposed. The aim of the present paper is to provide an overview of major writings dealing with adjuvant (non-pharmacological) treatments associated with botulinum toxin for managing spasticity in order to provide some up-to-date information about the usefulness of the most commonly used procedures. METHODS: The literature in PubMed was searched with the MeSH terms botulinum toxins, muscle spasticity, physical therapy modalities, and rehabilitation...

BACKGROUND: Return to work (RTW) is a major objective in the rehabilitation of individuals with severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). Implications for long-term occupational integration (beyond 5 years) have rarely been studied. OBJECTIVE: The objective was to assess long-term RTW and the associated factors after severe TBI. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective analysis of a cohort of individuals 16 to 60 years old admitted to hospital after severe TBI from 2005 to 2009 and followed prospectively...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the adherence, usability and acceptance of a rehabilitation protocol with a music-based serious game (SG) and its effect on rhythmic skills in Parkinson disease (PD). METHODS: Sixteen PD patients with mild cognitive and motor impairments were included (mean [SD] age 65 [7.28] years and Hoehn & Yahr score 2-3). Rehabilitation consisted of a 6-week at-home training program targeting rhythmic skills with a dedicated SG, Rhythm Workers, implemented on a tablet device...

BACKGROUND: In an ideal experimental setting, 2 randomized controlled trials recently showed the efficacy of physiotherapeutic scoliosis-specific exercises (PSSEs) for adolescents with idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). Now large observational studies are needed to check the generalizability of these results to everyday clinical life. OBJECTIVE: To explore the effectiveness of PSSEs for avoiding bracing or progression of AIS in everyday clinics. METHODS: This was a longitudinal comparative observational multicenter study, nested in a prospective database of outpatient tertiary referral clinics, including 327 consecutive patients...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The study aimed at inducing a visual vertical (VV) bias by immersion in a virtual tilted room (VTR, visual cues), then testing the effect of 30% body-weight support walking (BWSW, somaesthetic cues) to correct this bias. METHODS: We included 20 healthy participants (median age 54 years; 12 females) who wore the Oculus-Rift® Head Mounted Display to produce the virtual reality and generate the VV. VV (8 trials) was tested at baseline, then in 3 postural conditions (walking, sitting and BWSW), by 2 visual conditions (darkness and VTR), according to a pseudo-randomized blocked design...
