BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: It is known that patients with diabetes can develop limited joint mobility (LJM) and that this can depend on the metabolic control maintained and the duration of the disease. The aims of this study were to verify the presence of ankle joint mobility (AJM) deficits in both plantar and dorsiflexion in young type 1 diabetic patients (T1D) considering also the possible role of sport practiced as a further factor, able to modify AJM. METHODS: AJM was evaluated by an inclinometer in 82 T1D patients (M/F: 48/34), mean age 12...

A literature review of the application of kinesio taping in the prevention of professional dancers' injuries indicated frequent dance-related and overuse injuries and a lack of organized information about this issue. This study aimed to assess the impact of kinesio taping on the musculoskeletal system of dancers, based on scientific research data from 2015-2017. The analysis revealed that kinesio taping can effectively reduce muscle spasms, rebuild muscle strength of the injured extremity, improve static and dynamic balance and ease pain, due to its ability to improve proprioception of joints and regulate muscle tone...

BACKGROUND: In people with multiple sclerosis (MS) disabilities and limitations may negatively affect self-efficacy. Lowered self-efficacy has been associated with decreases in health-related quality of life, physical activity and cognitive performance. In an explorative observational study we found that a 3-day intensive social cognitive program (Can Do Treatment [CDT]) with the participation of support partners was followed by substantial increases in self-efficacy control and health-related quality of life 6 months after treatment in those people with MS who had relapsing remitting disease and low disability...

The Fit to Dance survey has been conducted twice previously, in 1993 and 2002, without dancesport participants. The purpose of this present online survey was to supplement a comparison of dancesport against the earlier results. The current study had a greater percentage of male respondents than previous studies (43% vs 24% and 26%). The dancesport participants were older (28% at 40+ yrs vs 3% and 1%) and more likely to have normal (69% vs 57%) to overweight BMI (18% vs 2%). Dancesport participants spent more time in various non-dancing conditioning activities than previous surveys (5...

The foot and ankle are prone to injury in the performing arts population, not least amongst dancers who require extreme ranges of movement in this area. This is a complex anatomical area which can be vulnerable to wide array of injuries. Many of these injuries stem from the dancer's posture, technique and environmental factors such as footwear and flooring; therefore, a thorough understanding of these by the clinician is important to ensure full rehabilitation and to prevent recurrence. This article presents an overview of the most common injuries seen in the dancer population and explores the underlying postural, technical and environmental factors that need to be addressed for full recovery...

PURPOSE: To understand why professional female ballet dancers often complain of inguinal pain and experience early hip osteoarthritis (OA). Goals were to examine clinical and advanced imaging findings in the hips of dancers compared with those in a matched cohort of nondancers and to assess the femoral head translation in the forward split position using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS: Twenty professional female ballet dancers and 14 active healthy female individuals matched for age (control group) completed a questionnaire on hip pain and underwent hip examination with impingement tests and measurement of passive hip range of motion (ROM)...

OBJECTIVE: To study the impact of generalized joint hypermobility (GJH) in professional dancers on physical fitness, musculoskeletal complaints and psychological distress. METHODS: Thirty-six professional dancers were recruited and compared with control subjects (mean age 20.1, range 17-27). Height, weight, Beighton score, physical fitness (walking distance, muscle strength, estimated VO2max), musculoskeletal complaints (pain, fatigue) and psychological distress (anxiety, depression) were measured...

Hip pain in dancers is typically attributed to musculoskeletal etiologies due to local "wear-and-tear"; however, one must be aware of neurologic etiologies that may present with additional clinical findings and require specialized treatment. This article explores the presentation, potential causes, suggested work-up, and treatment options for femoral neuropathy, lateral femoral cutaneous syndrome, and piriformis syndrome.

Over the past decade numerous articles have been published regarding the hip labrum. Injuries to the labrum are becoming better understood as biomechanical, kinematic, and diagnostic technologies improve. When the last article on acetabular labral tears appeared in the Journal of Dance Medicine and Science in 2006, this injury was widely handled surgically by debridement. Just 5 years later, we see a shift toward preservation and repair of the labrum and correction of morphology when possible. This change in philosophy has come about as new information on the function of the labrum and the stresses placed upon it at extremes of hip range of motion became available...

In the present study, we tried to determine the association between joint ranges of motion, anatomical anomalies, body structure, dance discipline, and injuries in young female recreational dancers. A group of 1336 non-professional female dancers (age 8-16 years), were screened. The risk factors considered for injuries were: range of motion, body structure, anatomical anomalies, dance technique, and dance discipline. Sixty-one different types of injuries and symptoms were identified and later classified into four major categories: knee injuries, foot or ankle tendinopathy, back injuries, and non-categorized injuries...

Little has been written about rehabilitation of low back pain (LBP) specific to the professional dancer. However, there is a rapidly increasing amount of rehabilitation research related to the care of LBP in the general population that may be applied to the dancer population. The purpose of this case report is to describe the physical therapy management of a 37-year-old female professional dancer with a 5-year history of spinal pain and loss of function in the presence of degenerative joint disease at a single segment (T12-L1)...

MOTIVATION: Copy number alterations (CNAs) associated with cancer are known to contribute to genomic instability and gene deregulation. Integrating CNAs with gene expression helps to elucidate the mechanisms by which CNAs act and to identify the transcriptional downstream targets of CNAs. Such analyses can help to sort functional driver events from the many accompanying passenger alterations. However, the way CNAs affect gene expression can vary in different cellular contexts, for example between different subtypes of the same cancer...

Dancers frequently sustain hip injuries, including labral tears, coxa saltans, stress fractures, tendinosis, and joint disease. High velocity kicks (grand battement), with extreme abduction and external rotation (ER), may stress the hip, sacroiliac joint, and surrounding soft tissue. However, three-dimensional kinematic dance descriptions are limited. The purpose of this study was to describe the kinematics of the pelvis and hip in grand battement movements in healthy dancers. Seventeen advanced-level college dancers performed three battement conditions: battement devant to the front, à la seconde to the side, and derrière to the back...

Articular cartilage is susceptible to damage; however, it has limited capacity for repair. Damage can lead to persistent symptoms including pain, swelling, and loss of function and may ultimately progress to symptomatic degeneration of the joint. To restore function and minimize symptoms, many advocate surgical intervention in selected candidates, which can range from arthroscopic debridement to restorative procedures depending on patient and lesion characteristics. Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation (ACI) is a two-stage, typically second-line intervention where cultured autologous chondrocytes are used with the aim of resurfacing symptomatic chondral defects with hyaline or hyaline-like cartilage...

BACKGROUND: Early hip osteoarthritis in dancers could be explained by femoroacetabular impingements. However, there is a lack of validated noninvasive methods and dynamic studies to ascertain impingement during motion. Moreover, it is unknown whether the femoral head and acetabulum are congruent in typical dancing positions. HYPOTHESIS: The practice of some dancing movements could cause a loss of hip joint congruence and recurrent impingements, which could lead to early osteoarthritis...

Ankle sprain is a common injury in dancers. Because of the relative frequency of this injury and its wide acceptance as a likely part of an active lifestyle, in many individuals it may not receive the careful attention it deserves. An extreme ankle range of motion and excellent ankle stability are fundamental to success in dance. Hence, following a proper treatment protocol is crucial for allowing a dancer who suffers an ankle sprain to return to dance as soon as possible without impaired function. This article reviews the basic principles of the etiology and management of ankle sprain in dancers...

Dance is a high performance athletic activity that leads to great numbers of injuries, particularly in the ankle region. One reason for this is the extreme range of ankle motion required of dancers, especially females in classical ballet where the en pointe and demi-pointe positions are common. These positions of maximal plantar flexion produce excessive force on the posterior ankle and may result in impingement, pain, and disability. Os trigonum and protruding lateral talar process are two common and well-documented morphological variations associated with posterior ankle impingement in ballet dancers...
