REVIEW
Johann Beaudreuil
Orthoses for osteoarthritis represent splints, taping, sleeves, unloading knee braces and insoles. This review of the effectiveness of these orthoses involved a search for articles published up to 2015 in MEDLINE via PubMed, with a focus on Osteoarthritis Research Society International, American College of Rheumatology and European League Against Rheumatology international recommendations. Evidence for splinting effectiveness in patients with thumb-base osteoarthritis is now provided. Splints for thumb-base osteoarthritis decrease pain and functional disability...

Recent advances in surgeons' understanding of the anatomic, biomechanical, and radiologic features of the anterolateral ligament (ALL) of the knee have led to an increased interest in reconstruction of this structure as part of the management of knee instability. Even without any technical flaws and proper positioning of the bone tunnels, there is a small subset of patients, approximately 7% of all patients, who experience some residual anterolateral rotational instability after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction...

PURPOSE: It is an established fact that post-operative (p.o.) soft-tissue swelling and lymphoedema after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) have a major influence on the p.o. early functional outcome. Kinesio taping has a proven clinical effect in increasing lymph drainage. Despite the decades of experience gained and the assumed positive effects, hardly any investigations have been conducted to date on the influence of Kinesio taping on the p.o. healing process after TKA. The objective of the present study was to test the hypothesis that Kinesio taping used as a lymph application leads to a reduction of p...

INTRODUCTION: Dynamic clinical tests of hip strength applicable on patients, non-athletes and athletes alike, are lacking. The aim of this study was therefore to develop and evaluate the reliability of a dynamic muscle function test of hip external rotation strength, using a novel device. A second aim was to determine if gender differences exist in absolute and relative hip strength using the new test. METHODS: Fifty-three healthy sport science students (34 women and 19 men) were tested for hip external rotation strength using a device that consisted of a strap connected in series with an elastic resistance band loop, and a measuring tape connected in parallel with the elastic resistance band...

Elite golf athletes suffer from various musculoskeletal injuries due to repeated golf swings. Repetitive varus moment during golf swing has been suggested as a possible cause of injuries to the lead knee. The aim of this study was to objectively and quantitatively evaluate the immediate effects of sports taping on the lead knee of elite golfers to restrict varus moment. Thirty-one elite golfers were assigned to the low (LHG, n = 15) or high handicapped group (HHG, n = 16). By using 3-dimensional motion analysis, the lead knee position on the frontal plane with and without rigid taping (RT), elastic taping (ET), and placebo taping (PT) was identified in four separate phases by the five events of golf swing: the peak of the back swing (E1), parallel to the ground during downswing (E2), ball impact (E3), parallel to the ground during follow-through (E4), and finish (E5)...
