Objective: To evaluate the efficacy of distention arthrography (DA) alone and in combination with translational mobilization (TM) for treatment of patients with frozen shoulder (FS). Methods: Eighty-five patients diagnosed with unilateral FS (freezing or frozen stage) were included. Forty-one patients were treated with DA and TM (group 1) and 44 patients with DA alone (group 2). Clinical assessments including visual analogue scale (VAS), Cyriax stage, and shoulder passive range of motion (PROM) including forward flexion, abduction, external rotation, and internal rotation were measured at baseline, 1 month, and 3 months following treatment...

OBJECTIVE: The authors present a multicenter retrospective series of different benign rib lesions in children operated on using thoracoscopy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 2005 and 2015, 17 rib resections were performed thoracoscopically, in four French departments of pediatric surgery. Of these 17 cases, 13 exostoses, 2 endochondromas, 1 synostosis, and 1 Cyriax's syndrome were noted. Inclusion criteria were benign tumors or rib anomalies such as synostosis, in children younger than the age of 18 years, and thoracoscopy...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to compare the short-term effects of kinesiotaping and extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) along with physiotherapy on pain, functionality, and grip strength in patients with newly diagnosed lateral epicondylitis undergoing rehabilitation. METHODS: Forty-five voluntary patients (mean age 48 years) were randomly assigned to three groups. Patients in all groups received physiotherapy consisting of a cold pack and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation five times per week for a total of 15 sessions and a home exercise programme including stretching and eccentric strength exercises...

INTRODUCTION: Tennis elbow (TE) is one of the most commonly encountered upper limb conditions. It mainly affects people who use the hand grip against resistance frequently, resulting in microtrauma to the wrist extensors tendon, causing pain. This study was conducted to compare the application of iontophoresis of 0.4% dexamethasone and Cyriax-type exercises in the treatment of chronic tennis elbow (CTE). METHODS: Twenty-two industrial worker diagnosed as having CTE participated in this study, and their ages ranged from 25 to 52...

OBJECTIVE: To systematically review the literature for efficacy of isolated articular mobilization techniques in patients with primary adhesive capsulitis (AC) of the shoulder. DATA SOURCES: PubMed and Web of Science were searched for relevant studies published before November 2014. Additional references were identified by manual screening of the reference lists. STUDY SELECTION: All English language randomized controlled trials evaluating the efficacy of mobilization techniques on range of motion (ROM) and pain in adult patients with primary AC of the shoulder were included in this systematic review...

BACKGROUND: Tension-type headache (TTH) is a disease with a great incidence on quality of life and with a significant socioeconomic impact. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this review is to determine the effectiveness of physical therapy by using manual therapy (MT) for the relief of TTH. DATA SOURCES: A review was done identifying randomized controlled trials through searches in MEDLINE, PEDro, Cochrane and CINAHL (January 2002 - April 2012). STUDY SELECTION: English-language studies, with adult patients and number of subjects not under 11, diagnosed with episodic tension-type headache (ETTH) and chronic tension-type headache (CTTH) were included...

Background Deep transverse friction massage, one of several physical therapy interventions suggested for the management of tendinitis pain, was first demonstrated in the 1930s by Dr James Cyriax, a renowned orthopedic surgeon in England. Its goal is to prevent abnormal fibrous adhesions and abnormal scarring. This is an update of a Cochrane review first published in 2001.Objectives To assess the benefits and harms of deep transverse friction massage for treating lateral elbow or lateral knee tendinitis.Search methods We searched the following electronic databases: the specialized central registry of the Cochrane Field of Physical and Related Therapies,the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL),MEDLINE, EMBASE, the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), Clinicaltrials...

Although there has been a considerable amount of material published on the pathology and the probable aetiology of the frozen shoulder, the same cannot be said of suggestions for an effective method of physical treatment for all stages of the condition. Some authors claim that exercises mar the recovery process (Cyriax, 1957). Others have found that the condition runs a self-limiting course of anything up to three years, and any physical treatment is "notoriously unsuccessful" in altering this pattern (Crisp and Hume Kendall, 1955)...

Divergent opinions exist on whether or not physiotherapists should manipulate. The controversy can be simply resolved by pointing out that the past policy of withholding such tuition from physiotherapists has in no way diminished the public demand for manipulation; it has merely forced potential patients to the bonesetter. Even those doctors who resent the idea of physiotherapists manipulating must surely prefer its performance by trained personnel working under doctors' guidance to indiscriminate recourse to all sorts of largely untrained laymen without doctors' prior approval...

Spinogenic assessment has received voluminous attention (Cyriax, 1969; Grieve, 1970; Maitland, 1973; Mennell, 1952). However, spinogenic data recording is rarely presented. Although proforma systems have been used, they have typically served only as worksheets for the treatment and observation of individual patients (Grieve, op. cit.; James and Stuart, 1975; Maitland, op. cit.). Conclusions about even routine clinical information has rarely been subjected to statistical analysis for error.

STUDY DESIGN: Systematic review. INTRODUCTION: Joint mobilizations are used as an intervention for improving range of motion, decreasing pain and ultimately improving function in patients with a wide variety of upper extremity diagnoses. However, there are only a limited number of studies describing this treatment for conditions affecting the elbow, wrist, and hand. Furthermore, it is unclear as to the most effective joint mobilization technique utilized and the most beneficial functional outcomes gained...

BACKGROUND: Manual therapy of the cervical spine has occasionally been associated with serious adverse events involving compromise of the craniocervical arteries. Ultrasound studies have shown certain neck positions can alter craniocervical arterial blood flow velocities; however, findings are conflicting. Knowledge about the effects of neck position on blood flow may assist clinicians in avoiding potentially hazardous practices. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of selected manual therapeutic interventions on blood flow in the craniocervical arteries and blood supply to the brain using magnetic resonance angiography (MRA)...

STUDY DESIGN: Systematic literature review. OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy of deep friction massage (DFM) in the treatment of tendinopathy. CONTEXT: Anecdotal evidence supports the efficacy of DFM for the treatment of tendinopathy. An advanced understanding of the etiopathogenesis of tendinopathy and the resultant paradigm shift away from an active inflammatory model has taken place since the popularization of the DFM technique by Cyriax for the treatment of "tendinitis...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: To compare the prevalence of positive clinical tests suggestive of disputed neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) in subjects with CTS (CTS+) with that of subjects without CTS (control). STUDY DESIGN: Case-control study. METHODS: Subjects with electrodiagnostically confirmed CTS (CTS+) were recruited consecutively and matched by age (±2 years) and gender with asymptomatic (control) subjects...
