PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review aims to describe the nonreconstructive options for treating ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) injuries ranging from nonoperative measures, including physical therapy and biologic injections, to ligament repair with and without augmentation. RECENT FINDINGS: Nonoperative options for UCL injuries include guided physical therapy and biologic augmentation with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). In some patients, repair of the UCL has shown promising return to sport rates by using modern suture and suture anchor techniques...

The positive effects of physical and sports therapy for strain dependent physical practice and improved quality of life (QoL) are well known. Nevertheless, the available capacities and problem-oriented therapies in the setting of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) are limited. We conducted a prospective, randomized study among 42 HSCT recipients in order to investigate the influence of exergaming on Nintendo Wii® or classical physiotherapy (PT) on physical fitness and psychological well-being. The trial included evaluation of muscle strength, endurance, physical activity, distress, QoL, anxiety, and depression...

There is irrefutable evidence that routine physical activity or exercise can offer considerable health benefits to individuals living with various mental disorders. However, it is not clear what effect physical activity has on the symptoms of Tourette syndrome. Despite a paucity of evidence, physical activity or exercise has already been recommended by various health organizations for the management of tics. We provide a systematic review of the effects of physical activity or exercise on tic symptomology in individuals with Tourette syndrome...

The improvement of existing obesity treatment for children and adolescents requires knowledge about social and personal conditions, individual needs, and life style. From particular importance are information about physical activity and media use, in order to target and adjust content and methods of therapy interventions. In 2013, 510 adolescents aged 11 to 17 years participated in a survey on above named factors. Physical activities were conducted with friends (64%) and in sport clubs (43%). Girls (OR 0.55) and children of unemployed parents (OR 0...

Medial-sided elbow pain is becoming more common among pediatric overhead sport athletes. One potential cause of this is a partial or complete tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL). Because the growth plate remains open in many of these athletes, the most common injury experienced is an avulsion at the medial epicondyle. However, although rare, there is a potential to tear the UCL, with the most common tears occurring at the anterior bundle. However, tears to the posterior bundle are quite rare in pediatric patients...

A 15-year-old baseball pitcher presented to physical therapy with a 1-week history of acute right shoulder pain experienced during the acceleration phase of throwing. The week after physical therapy evaluation, the patient returned with radiographs and magnetic resonance imaging results that revealed lateral physeal widening with adjacent edema. Additionally, a nondisplaced labral tear was noted. In this case, imaging was necessary for an accurate diagnosis of lateral physeal widening, commonly referred to as "Little League shoulder...

Issue: Lower extremity tendon injuries often occur in physically active individuals. Most ruptures not involving great force are diagnosed in patients presenting underlying tendon degenerations. This also applies to patients taking medications because of a disease. We have observed several cases of bilateral Achilles tendon ruptures in patients who have been taking cortisone for a long period. We treated a healthy colleague (neurologist) in our clinic who sustained ruptures of the Achilles tendon on the left side (2012) and the peroneus brevis tendon on left side (2015) and right side (2016) after minimal traumata...

REVIEW
Lindsay S Flynn, Thomas W Wright, Joseph J King
Quadrilateral space (QS) syndrome (QSS) is a relatively rare condition in which the axillary nerve and the posterior humeral circumflex artery are compressed within the QS. Fibrous bands are most commonly implicated as the cause, with true space-occupying lesions being less common. QSS is characterized by poorly localized shoulder pain and paresthesia over the lateral aspect of the shoulder and arm in a nondermatomal pattern. These symptoms are aggravated by shoulder abduction and external rotation. Point tenderness is typically present over the QS; however, diagnosis on physical examination can be difficult...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate how women with bulimia nervosa (BN) and binge eating disorder (BED) experience participating in a new treatment programme for eating disorders, based on guided physical exercise and dietary therapy. DESIGN AND PARTICIPANTS: Six women with BN and four with BED were semistructurally interviewed. Transcribed interviews were analysed using a text-condensing analytic approach. RESULTS: The analysis resulted in four main categories: (1) 'a renewed attitude towards physical activity', (2) 'a new perception of food', (3) 'mixed feelings of being in a heterogeneous treatment group' and (4) 'insight in one's own recovery process', each with 2-4 subcategories to express nuances...

BACKGROUND: The International Knee Documentation Committee Subjective Knee Form (IKDC) and the Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) are knee-specific questionnaires that have been widely used and translated into numerous languages. However, the differences in the psychometric properties between the Chinese IKDC and KOOS remain unclear. The purpose of this study was to conduct a cross-cultural adaptation of the Chinese IKDC and Chinese KOOS and to compare the psychometric properties of these two measures in patients with various knee injuries from the acute stage up to 12 weeks after receiving treatment...

On May 25, 2017, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a decision memo establishing coverage for supervised exercise therapy (SET) for Medicare beneficiaries experiencing intermittent claudication due to peripheral artery disease (PAD). A meaningful impact on population health is possible with greater freedom to participate in regular physical activity. The authors of this editorial explain the potential roles of physical therapists in the SET program and argue for further integration of physical therapists through collaborative practice...

Elaine Toomey, Wendy Hardeman
Intervention fidelity is a key component of the design and conduct of physical therapy research, defined as "the methodological strategies used to enhance and monitor the reliability and validity of behavioral interventions." This includes enhancing and assessing the extent to which an intervention is implemented as intended by its developers, including how they envisage the participants or patients to interact with the intervention. The authors of this Viewpoint focus predominantly on the fidelity of intervention delivery; highlight the importance of intervention fidelity for the physical therapy profession and its relevance for both physical therapy researchers and practitioners; and explore potential barriers to enhancing and assessing the fidelity of intervention delivery in physical therapy research...

Kelsey Flanders, Heather Feldner
Background and Purpose: Whiplash Associated Disorders and the interventions used to remediate them are well documented in physical therapy literature. However, specific interventions for spasms of the neck musculature that also involve constant ear twitching have yet to be addressed. The purpose of this case report is twofold. First, to describe comprehensive physical therapy management and outcomes for a subject with uncontrolled ear twitching and related musculoskeletal impairments, and second, to discuss the physical therapist's approach to evidence-based care when faced with a paucity of literature addressing physical therapy interventions for subjects with uncontrolled ear twitching...
