Objective: Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is an autosomal dominant tumor predisposition syndrome with a tendency to develop peripheral nerve sheath tumors (PNST). Plexiform neurofibromas (PNF) are detected in a high proportion of affected patients. The tumors can lead to severe disfigurement and are classified as precancerous. This study examines the surgical procedures that have been performed on large PNST of the upper limb and hand, and investigates whether a specific distribution pattern of the tumors can be detected in surgically treated cases...

The physiotherapist's clinical practice includes proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF), which is a treatment concept that accelerates the response of neuromuscular mechanisms through spiral and diagonal movements. The adaptations that occur in the nervous system following PNF are still poorly described in the literature. Thus, this study had a goal to investigate the electrophysiological changes in the fronto-parietal circuit during PNF and movement in sagittal and diagonal patterns. This study included 30 female participants, who were divided into three groups (control, PNF, and flexion groups)...

BACKGROUND: Impairment of spine rotation is a key concept in several theories explaining the pathogenesis and progression of scoliosis. In previous studies, a more limited range of motion in scoliotic girls compared to their non-scoliotic peers was noted. The Trunk-Pelvis-Hip Angle measurement is a test used to assess the range of motion in the trunk-pelvis-hip complex in the transverse plane. The aim of this study was to assess an immediate effect of Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation specific mobilization (mPNF) on the angle of trunk rotation and Trunk-Pelvis-Hip Angle range of motion in adolescent girls with double scoliosis...

The objective of this study was to explore the neurophysiological remote after-effects of resistive static contraction (SC) of the muscles of the upper extremity, considering the resistant direction on the ipsilateral (right) soleus H-reflex. The participants included 12 normal subjects with a mean (SD) age of 23.8 (2.8) years. The subjects were asked to maintain their upper extremity against the traction force, at a level of resistance that was 50% of the maximal SC strength. A 20-s SC of the muscles of the upper extremity utilizing contraction of the upper extremity muscles using a diagonal flexion (shoulder flexion-adduction-external rotation) or extension (shoulder extension-abduction-internal rotation), a proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) pattern was induced...

REVIEW
Anna Świerczyńska, Renata Kłusek, Marek Kaciński
The authors reviewed neurophysiological methods, which are used in the evaluation of children referred for neurorehabilitation. Rehabilitation techniques which may stimulate or provoke pathological changes in EEG must be ruled out. Electrophysiological and clinical improvement allow for the extension and intensification of rehabilitation. Normal EEG pattern ensures the safe use of techniques consisting of neuromuscular re-education or passive verticalisation, electrotherapy and thermotherapy. Quantitative and qualitative assessment of cognitive impairment is based on neuropsychological tests and endogenous evoked potentials (most often P300)...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
Eric R Pedersen, Grant N Marshall, Terry L Schell
BACKGROUND: Young adult veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan represent a population at-risk for heavy and problematic alcohol use. Unfortunately, few seek treatment for alcohol concerns and those that do seek care may drop out from lengthy multicomponent treatments. Additionally, veterans who live in rural areas and those who are not engaged in the Veterans Affairs Healthcare System are often overlooked, difficult to engage in treatment, and may not be actively seeking treatment for heavy patterns of use that may develop into an alcohol use disorder...

#18
Barbara J Hoogenboom, Michael L Voight
UNLABELLED: Rolling is a movement pattern seldom used by physical therapists for assessment and intervention with adult clientele with normal neurologic function. Rolling, as an adult motor skill, combines the use of the upper extremities, core, and lower extremities in a coordinated manner to move from one posture to another. Rolling is accomplished from prone to supine and supine to prone, although the method by which it is performed varies among adults. Assessment of rolling for both the ability to complete the task and bilateral symmetry may be beneficial for use with athletes who perform rotationally-biased sports such as golf, throwing, tennis, and twisting sports such as dance, gymnastics, and figure skating...
