Dear Editor, Pitted keratolysis (PK), also known as keratosis plantaris sulcatum, is a non-inflammatory, bacterial, superficial cutaneous infection, characterized by many discrete superficial crateriform ''pits'' and erosions in the thickly keratinized skin of the weight-bearing regions of the soles of the feet (1). The disease often goes unnoticed by the patient, but when it is noticed it is because of the unbearable malodor and hyperhidrosis of the feet, which are socially unacceptable and cause great anxiety to many of the patients...

Study Design Epidemiological retrospective database study. Background It is widely believed that structured rehabilitation programs by professional therapists help guide patients through the various recovery periods after shoulder arthroplasty, speeding up their recovery and improving their final functional gains. However, to our knowledge, there are no studies providing information about the current state of physical rehabilitation use after shoulder arthroplasty. Objectives Describe the variation in physical rehabilitation utilization after total and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty and identify differences in utilization based on type of insurance (private versus public), gender, age, region of the country, and type of replacement...

REVIEW
Roberto Codella, Marta Ialacqua, Ileana Terruzzi, Livio Luzi
Physical activity, together with diet and pharmacological therapy, represents one of the three cornerstones in type 2 diabetes mellitus treatment and care. The therapeutic appeal of regular physical activity stems from: (i) its non-pharmacological nature; (ii) its beneficial effects on the metabolic risk factors associated with diabetes complications; (iii) its low costs. Evidence accumulated in the last years suggests that aerobic training-endurance training-constitutes a safe modality of intervention, achievable, and effective in diabetes treatment, whenever it is not limited by comorbidities...

A 16-year-old high school baseball pitcher with a 3-week history of acute-onset pain in his medial elbow during throwing presented to physical therapy. Following examination, physical therapy was initiated and the patient was referred for imaging, with suspicion of ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) injury. Radiographs were noncontributory. Ultrasound imaging, however, was performed by a physiatrist and was suggestive of a partial-thickness tear of the UCL and ulnar nerve enlargement. The physiatrist ordered magnetic resonance imaging, which confirmed a medial apophyseal stress reaction, a mild UCL sprain, and reactive ulnar nerve edema...

Background: Patellofemoral pain (PFP) is the most common knee condition among adolescents, with a prevalence of 6-7% resulting in reduced function and quality of life. Exercise therapy is recommended for treating PFP, but has only been tested in older adolescents (15-19 years). This pilot study aimed to investigate the adherence to, and clinical effects of, exercise and patient education in young adolescents (12-16 years), with PFP. Methods: Twenty adolescents (16 females) with PFP were recruited from a population-based cohort to undergo a 3-month multimodal intervention...

Synopsis Hip and knee osteoarthritis (OA) are among the leading causes of global disability, highlighting the need for early, targeted, and effective treatments. The benefits on symptoms and impairments of exercise therapy in people with hip and knee OA are substantial and supported by high-quality evidence, underlining that it should be part of first line treatment offered to all people with hip and knee OA in clinical practice. Furthermore, unlike other treatments for OA such as analgesia and surgery, exercise therapy is not associated with risk of serious harm...

Study Design Subgroup analysis of a controlled clinical trial. Background Current evidence suggests that people with chronic low back pain who are distressed may require different interventions than do those who are not distressed. Recently, the enhanced transtheoretical model intervention (ETMI) reported significant improvements in disability and pain and increased physical activity in patients with chronic low back pain compared to physical therapy as usual. Objectives To compare outcomes between ETMI and physical therapy interventions for participants with and without self-reported distress...
