BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Slumped posture is a diagnostic feature of depression. While research shows upright posture improves self-esteem and mood in healthy samples, little research has investigated this in depressed samples. This study aimed to investigate whether changing posture could reduce negative affect and fatigue in people with mild to moderate depression undergoing a stressful task. METHODS: Sixty-one community participants who screened positive for mild to moderate depression were recruited into a study purportedly on the effects of physiotherapy tape on cognitive function...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of neck pain with manual therapy demonstrated to be more effective and cost-effective than general practitioner (GP) care or physiotherapy in a high quality RCT in the Netherlands in 2002. However, referral to manual therapy for neck pain is still relatively low. This study aims to explore the barriers and facilitators affecting the implementation of manual therapy in neck pain management in primary care. METHODS: An explorative study was conducted comprising semi-structured interviews with GPs (n = 13), physiotherapists (n = 10), manual therapists (n = 7) and their patients with neck pain (n = 27), and three focus groups with additional stakeholders (n = 10-12 per group)...

BACKGROUND: Management of rotator cuff disease often includes manual therapy and exercise, usually delivered together as components of a physical therapy intervention. This review is one of a series of reviews that form an update of the Cochrane review, 'Physiotherapy interventions for shoulder pain'. OBJECTIVES: To synthesise available evidence regarding the benefits and harms of manual therapy and exercise, alone or in combination, for the treatment of people with rotator cuff disease...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) is commonly used to treat spinal disorders. Although clinical practice guidelines recommend the use of SMT in the treatment of neck and back disorders, concerns exist about the nature and incidence of adverse events associated with the intervention. Comprehensive reporting of adverse events in clinical trials could allow for accurate incidence estimates through meta-analysis. However, it is not clear if randomized clinical trials (RCTs) that involve SMT are currently reporting adverse events adequately...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of intermittent femoral and sciatic nerve blocks combined with an in-house physiotherapy protocol for treating postoperative knee stiffness. Sixty-eight patients with postoperative knee stiffness were evaluated for passive knee flexion and extension at different time points, beginning preoperatively and continuing throughout a median 10-month follow-up after mobilization intervention. Sciatic and femoral nerve catheters were activated 1 hour prior to each physiotherapy session, which was performed twice per day and supported by a continuous passive range of motion machine...

BACKGROUND: Robotic devices have been utilized in gait rehabilitation but have only produced moderate results when compared to conventional physiotherapy. Because bipedal walking requires neural coupling and dynamic interactions between the legs, a fundamental understanding of the sensorimotor mechanisms of inter-leg coordination during walking, which are not well understood but are systematically explored in this study, is needed to inform robotic interventions in gait therapy. METHODS: In this study we investigate mechanisms of inter-leg coordination by utilizing novel sensory perturbations created by real-time control of floor stiffness on a split-belt treadmill...

BACKGROUND: The therapeutic approach to chronic aspecific low back pain (CALBP) has to consider the multifactorial aetiology of the disorder. International guidelines do not agree on unequivocal treatment indications. Recommendations for fascial therapy are few and of low level evidence but several studies indicate strong correlations between fascial thickness and low back pain. This study aims at comparing the effectiveness of Fascial Manipulation® associated with a physiotherapy program following guidelines for CALBP compared to a physiotherapy program alone...

BACKGROUND: Neck pain is one of the most common musculoskeletal disorders in clinical practice. However neck pain may mask more serious pathology. Although uncommon in most musculoskeletal physiotherapy practices, it is possible to encounter rare and extremely life-threatening conditions, such as craniovertebral congenital anomalies. Basilar invagination is an abnormality where the odontoid peg projects above the foramen magnum and is the commonest malformation of the craniocervical junction...

INTRODUCTION: Heterotopic ossification (HO) is a benign condition of abnormal bone formation in soft tissue. It is frequently asymptomatic, though it manifests as decreased range of motion in the affected joints that may occur in the shoulder after a substantial traumatic injury and can complicate the functional outcome of the affected upper extremity. However, severe HO is an extremely rare event following acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) injury. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We are presenting a case of a 29-year-old male patient who had a trauma with resultant Rockwood type II injury...

BACKGROUND: Various interventions are available for the treatment of chronic low back pain (LBP), including Manual Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether the addition of an internet-based CBT program leads to better outcomes in patients who are treated with multimodal manual therapy for chronic LBP. METHODS/DESIGN: A randomized controlled trial comparing a combined intervention, consisting of internet-based CBT utilising MoodGYM plus multimodal manual therapy, to multimodal manual therapy alone for patients with chronic LBP...

BACKGROUND: Management of primary frozen shoulder is still controversial. Many authors tend to treat patients with an arthroscopic release, if conservative therapy fails. We aimed to demonstrate the efficiency of manipulation under anaesthesia (MUA) in patients with primary frozen shoulder and to contrast the outcome of single MUA with the results of MUA with an additional subacromial injection of cortisone. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A prospective trial with a 1-year follow-up was performed...

The Australian Physiotherapy Association's Clinical Guidelines for Pre-Manipulative Procedures for the Cervical Spine represent a positive step towards the goal of reducing the incidence of vertebrobasilar strokes following neck manipulation. Nevertheless, the predictive value of the guidelines is largely contingent upon the validity of the physical screening tests, particularly sustained end-range cervical rotation. The primary issue is the sensitivity of the tests for detecting patients with vertebral artery occlusion and vertebrobasilar insufficiency, and who are at high risk of experiencing significant forces during manipulation which could result in intimal dissection...

We applaud Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Australia for the formulation of the new Pre-Manipulative guidelines. The new guidelines are a step forward from the previous protocol because they allow individual practitioners choice when making clinical decisions. The previous protocol proved to be legally challenging and further increased practitioners' fear of manipulating.

The MPA undertook a survey of its members in 1997 to determine their compliance with and opinion of the APA Protocol for Pre-Manipulative Testing of the Cervical Spine (Magarey et al 2000a, Magarey et al submitted-a). As a result of that survey and a comprehensive literature review, the MPA developed a new set of guidelines for premanipulative procedures for the cervical spine (Magarey et al 2000b, Magarey et al submitted-b).

This issue of the Journal includes a new feature: the 'AJP Forum'. The Editorial Board envisages that this feature will be used from time to time to provide a venue for expert comment on issues of importance for physiotherapy practice. The first Forum examines issues related to premanipulative testing of the cervical spine. It follows the Australian Physiotherapy Association's recent release of Clinical Guidelines for Pre-Manipulative Procedures for the Cervical Spine (Magarey et al 2000). The 2000 guidelines replace the protocol published in 1988...

Chest physiotherapy is an empirical technique used to help secretions to get out of the lung whenever stagnation occurs. Although commonly used, little is known about the inner mechanisms of chest physiotherapy and controversies about its use are coming out regularly. Thus, a scientific validation of chest physiotherapy is needed to evaluate its effects on secretions. We setup a quasi-static numerical model of chest physiotherapy based on thorax and lung physiology and on their respective biophysics. We modeled the lung with an idealized deformable symmetric bifurcating tree...

After explaining that low back pain is considered the most common pregnancy complication, its pathogenesis, risk factors and the clinical characteristics of the very painful symptoms of this condition are described. As for its approach, it is stressed that it must be multidisciplinary, introducing very important preventive measures, including proper postural hygiene. For its treatment, the methods may be based on non-surgical or pharmacological interventions of a conservative non-invasive nature. Thus, physiotherapy, osteopathic manipulation, multimodal intervention (exercise and education), exercises performed in water environment, acupuncture, etc...
