BACKGROUND: Significant progress and new insights have been gained since the Dutch Physical Therapy guideline on low back pain (LBP) in 2013 and the Cesar en Mensendieck guideline in 2009, necessitating an update of these guidelines. AIM: To update and develop an evidence-based guideline for the comprehensive management of LBP and lumbosacral radicular syndrome (LRS) without serious specific conditions (red flags) for Dutch physical therapists and Cesar and Mensendieck Therapists...

BACKGROUND: Family caregivers (FC) contribute to reducing the misdiagnosis rate in patients with disorders of consciousness (DOC). Unfortunately, the recent pandemic of COVID-19 imposed drastic restrictions that limited the access of FC to the sensory/cognitive stimulation protocols. Telemedicine approaches have been implemented to avoid discontinuity in care pathways and to ensure caregivers involvement in rehabilitation programs. AIM: The aim was to investigate whether the presence of FC remotely connected might help clinicians in eliciting higher cortically mediated behavioral responses in patients with DOC...

BACKGROUND: Motor control exercise (MCE) is effective in alleviating non-specific chronic low back pain (NCLBP). Neuro-imaging research is warranted to explore the underlying neural mechanisms of MCE. AIM: We used resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (rs-fMRI) to explore the central mechanism underpinning the effects of MCE in patients with NCLBP. DESIGN: A randomized, single-blinded, controlled trial. SETTING: The setting was out-patient and community...

INTRODUCTION: Neuromuscular diseases (NMDs) include a large group of heterogeneous diseases. NMDs frequently involve gait disorders, which affect quality of life. Several walking tests and tools have been described in the literature, but there is no consensus regarding the use of walking tests and tools in NMDs or of their measurement properties for walking outcomes. The aim of this review is to present an overview of walking tests, including their measurement properties when used in adults with inherited or genetic NMDs...

Research on health policy, systems, and services (HPSSR) has seen significant growth in recent decades and received increasing attention in the field of rehabilitation. This growth is driven by the imperative to effectively address real-life challenges in complex healthcare settings. A recent resolution on 'Strengthening rehabilitation in health systems' adopted by the World Health Assembly emphasizes the need to support societal health goals related to rehabilitation, particularly to promote high-quality rehabilitation research, including HPSSR...

BACKGROUND: Poliomyelitis is a global disabling disease affecting 12-20 million of people. Post poliomyelitis syndrome (PPS) may affect up to 80% of polio survivors: increased muscle weakness, pain, fatigue, functional decline. It relies on aging of an impaired neuro-muscular system with ongoing denervation processes. A late involvement of humoral or cellular pro-inflammatory phenomena is also suspected. AIM: To assess the dysimmune hypothesis of PPS by comparing lymphocyte subpopulations and humoral immune factors between PPS patients and controls...

BACKGROUND: The Coma Recovery Scale-Revised (CRS-R) is the most recommended clinical tool to examine the neurobehavioral condition of individuals with disorders of consciousness (DOCs). Different studies have investigated the prognostic value of the information provided by the conventional administration of the scale, while other measures derived from the scale have been proposed to improve the prognosis of DOCs. However, the heterogeneity of the data used in the different studies prevents a reliable comparison of the identified predictors and measures...

This study aimed to synthesize evidence from studies that addressed the influence of bias domains in randomized controlled trials on rehabilitation intervention effect estimates and discuss how these findings can maximize the trustworthiness of an RCT in rehabilitation. We screened studies about the influence of bias on rehabilitation intervention effect estimates published until June 2023. The characteristics and results of the included studies were categorized based on methodological characteristics and summarized narratively...

BACKGROUND: Osteoarthritis (OA) is a heterogenous condition, in which different subgroups are present. Individualized interdisciplinary multimodal pain treatments (IMPT) based on the biopsychosocial model have resulted in positive improvement of pain, health and disability in OA patients. Moreover, predictive factors for treatment success of IMPT in different musculoskeletal pain populations have been examined, but a clinical prediction model which informs whether an OA patient is expected to benefit or not from IMPT is currently lacking...

INTRODUCTION: Periodic increases in West Nile virus (WNV) infections have been documented. Proper rehabilitative management is essential for these patients, who may experience limitations in daily activities even after the resolution of the acute infection. Since there are currently no globally accepted guidelines, our aim is to conduct a best-evidence synthesis on rehabilitative management for patients with neuroinvasive WNV. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: We screened the literature with two independent researchers conducting searches on PubMed, Embase, SCOPUS, and Google Scholar databases for WNV-related studies in the field of rehabilitation...

Rehabilitation providers and policymakers need valid evidence to make informed decisions about the healthcare needs of the population. Whenever possible, these decisions should be informed by randomized controlled trials (RCTs). However, there are circumstances when evidence needs to be generated rapidly, or when RCTs are not ethical or feasible. These situations apply to studying the effects of complex interventions, including rehabilitation as defined by Cochrane Rehabilitation. Therefore, we explore using the target trial emulation framework by Hernán and colleagues to obtain valid estimates of the causal effects of rehabilitation when RCTs cannot be conducted...
