BACKGROUND: Many women would like to avoid pharmacological or invasive methods of pain management in labour, and this may contribute towards the popularity of complementary methods of pain management. This review examined the evidence currently available on manual methods, including massage and reflexology, for pain management in labour. This review is an update of the review first published in 2012. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effect, safety and acceptability of massage, reflexology and other manual methods to manage pain in labour...

Introduction Maximum bite force (MBF) is the maximum force performed by the subject on the fragmentation of food, directly related with the mastication and determined by many factors. Objective Analyze the MBF of subjects according to age groups. Methods One hundred individuals from the city of São Paulo were equally divided according to age groups and gender. Each individual submitted to a myotherapy evaluation composed of anthropometric measurements of height and weight to obtain body mass index (BMI), using a tape and a digital scale (Magna, G-life, São Paulo), and a dental condition and maximum bite force evaluation, using a digital dynamometer model DDK/M (Kratos, São Paulo, Brazil), on Newton scale...

STUDY DESIGN: Seventy-one children (23 boys and 48 girls, aged 6 to 18 year-old) with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) between 11° and 62°, without braces, have been treated manually, only at the level of the neck. PURPOSE: To ascertain that non-surgical straightening of AIS is possible (without brace). OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE: So far no disease modifying treatment for AIS existed. Braces can only slow down worsening (and this can only be achieved if they are worn 23 hours a day)...

The authors describe an approach to the improvement of clinical efficacy of the method used to treat acquired myopia based on a set of reflexotherapeutic modalities. An algorithm is proposed for the choice of an optimal option. The best results were obtained with a combination of reflexotherapy, myotherapy, and pharmacopuncture of the Alloplant biomaterial.

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to describe the frequency and nature of injuries treated by the International Federation of Sports Chiropractic (FICS) chiropractic health care delegation at the 2009 World Games in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. METHODS: A cross-sectional study design with descriptive statistics was used to describe the standard patient care data recorded on FICS treatment forms of individuals voluntarily using FICS chiropractors. Data included patient demographics, region of the body, type of treatment provided, and pre- and posttreatment numerical pain levels...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: This article introduces the STTEP (Sustainable Training, Treatment, Employment Program) Model. The Model has been in operation since 1995. It provides a useful conceptual framework for policy makers, practitioners, and educators. The Model evolved from work carried out by chiropractors, myotherapists, and related health workers in poor communities through the charitable organization Hands On Health Australia. The STTEP Model grew from a recognition that poor communities mostly rely on heavy, repetitive physical labor for work...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: The Backache Index (BAI) is applied to patients with low back pain (LBP) in order to help therapists, doctors, and surgeons perform physical examinations easily. It is carried out within a short space of time (<2 min) without using inclinometric instruments. PURPOSE: To explore the reliability, validity, and responsiveness of this new Backache Index in patients with LBP, which can fulfil the existing need for a reliable routine examination in the clinical environment...

A posttraumatic open bite associated with a bird face is reported. Condylectomy was indicated in relation to the plurifragmentary fracture of the condyles with limitation of mandibular movement. Condylectomies were mandatory as a result of delayed maxillofacial surgical treatment, which was related to the poor general condition of the patient after trauma. Functional disorder recovery and aesthetic deformity correction were planned by a team approach between orthodontists and maxillofacial surgeons with the support of a logopedist for the postural-related muscle problems...

The critical anabolic and trophic role of signaling by insulin-like growth factors (IGF) I and II via the type-I IGF receptor (IGF-IR) is reviewed throughout the life of skeletal myocytes. The proliferative effects of IGF-IR stimulation, both during embryogenesis and during satellite cell proliferation following denervation or muscle injury, are mediated primarily through activation of mitogen-activated protein kinases. Signaling through phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase is essential to muscle protein synthesis and glucose uptake and may contribute to the observed resilience of mature muscle to programmed cell death...

This study addresses speech-language therapy in orofacial myology utilizing a Brief Intervention (in Portuguese: IntervenAão Fonoaudiológica Breve) (IFB). IFB is applied to patient groups between the ages of 8 and 15 years with orthodontic/orthopedic appliances in 1997. Results are presented indicating the advantages of using IFB for breathing, feeding, oral-facial habits, buccal hygiene and corporal posture/physical activity. It concludes that Brief Intervention can be accomplished in 8 sessions, is economically advantageous for use in group therapy, and may be used before or in conjunction with Myofunctional Therapy/Myotherapy...

There are sporadic instances of patients with the motor function disturbance of non-cardiac origin after cardiac surgery, and these patients may need prolonged post-operative cardiac rehabilitation. We established our cardiac rehabilitation program for post-operative patients and a total of 124 patients underwent the post-operative cardiac rehabilitation program (male 73, female 51, average age 60). Among them, 12 patients (9.7%) received the physical therapy for the disturbance of motor function post-operatively...

The article discusses four methods of relieving chronic pain: (1) the therapeutic touch; (2) myotherapy, erasing the body's trigger points; (3) guided imagery; and (4) relaxation combined with rhythmic breathing. Nurses familiar with these pain-relieving techniques are better equipped than others to care for and help chronic-pain patients. These methods are suggested for the following reasons. They: (a) are well within the scope of the average nurse's qualifications to use; (b) do not require any special equipment; (c) may be tried without the attending physician's or surgeon's approval; (d) will not interfere with whatever medical treatment the patient may be undergoing; and (e) do not require the patient's official informed consent...
