BACKGROUND: Translation of research into practice is a methodological challenge. The GLA:D® Back program was initiated to implement evidence-based care for people with low back pain inspired by GLA:D® (Good Life with osteoArthritis in Denmark) that has succeeded in implementing evidence-based care for knee and hip osteoarthritis. This study evaluates the spread and reach of promotion initiatives for GLA:D® Back clinician courses, and the adoption of the GLA:D® Back intervention in clinical practice...

OBJECTIVE: This is a report of the results of 4 facilitated workshops aimed at developing a standardized chiropractic technique curriculum. METHODS: Workshops were held at research conferences during 2014, 2016, 2018, and 2019. Participants were tasked with developing recommendations for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures appropriate for chiropractic technique programs. RESULTS: For diagnostic procedures, there was general agreement among participants that chiropractic programs should include diagnostic imaging, postural assessment, gait analysis, palpation (static, motion, and joint play/springing), global range of motion, and evidence-based orthopedic/neurological tests...

BACKGROUND: Opioid abuse has developed into a public health emergency within the last decade because opioid medications, while addictive, are effective and commonly used for pain management. In 2016, over 42,000 deaths were attributed to opioids. Chronic pain affects about 50% of people experiencing homelessness in the US, and they have a higher overall rate of chronic pain than the general population; opioids are among the methods they might use to manage that pain. Complementary and alternative therapies for pain management have largely gone unexplored in the homeless population...

Together, neck pain and back pain are the first cause of disability worldwide, accounting for more than 10% of the total years lived with disability. In this context, chiropractic care provides a safe and effective option for the management of a large proportion of these patients. Chiropractic is a healthcare profession mainly focused on the spine and the treatment of spinal disorders, including spine pain. Basic studies have examined the influence of chiropractic spinal manipulation on a variety of peripheral, spinal, and supraspinal mechanisms involved in spine pain...

BACKGROUND: Managing low back pain (LBP) often involves MRI despite the fact that international guidelines do not recommend routine imaging. To allow us to explore the topic and use this knowledge in further research, a reliable method to review the MRI referrals is needed. Consequently, this study aimed to assess the inter-rater reliability of a method evaluating lumbar spine MRI referrals' appropriateness. METHODS: Four inexperienced students (chiropractic master's students) and a senior clinician (chiropractor) were included as independent raters in this inter-rater reliability study...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of ischemic pressure (IP) vs postisometric relaxation (PIR) on rhomboid-muscle latent trigger points (LTrPs). METHODS: Forty-five participants with rhomboid-muscle LTrPs were randomly assigned into 3 groups and received 3 weeks of treatment-group A: IP and traditional treatment (infrared radiation, ultrasonic therapy, and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation); group B: PIR and traditional treatment; and group C: traditional treatment...

Hypopressive exercise (HE) has been contraindicated for people with cardiovascular disease because it involves isometric postures performed with low-pulmonary volume breath-holds, which are thought to increase blood pressure. The objective of this study was to analyze the hemodynamic responses to HE performed in the seated posture on systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), mean arterial pressure (MAP) and heart rate (HR) in normotensive females. Ten women (age = 31.2 ± 6.3 years) with previous experience in HE participated...

INTRODUCTION: Neck pain is one of the most common musculoskeletal disorders worldwide. Osteopaths are primary contact health professionals who predominantly manage musculoskeletal complaints. How Australian osteopaths manage neck pain is beginning to emerge in the literature and there may be differences based on clinical experience. This work presents a secondary data analysis of the Australian osteopathy practice-based research network and aims to examine the clinical management characteristics of experienced and novice osteopaths who often treat neck pain...

INTRODUCTION: It is well known that physical exercise improves functional capacity (FC), promoting healthy aging. The Pilates method (PM) is an example of well-accepted physical exercise by the elderly and has been reported in studies to be beneficial for this population. However, it is not yet known whether there is a difference between the practice of mat and apparatus PM. The goal of this study was to compare the effect of mat versus apparatus Pilates training on functional capacity in elderly women...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Considering the importance of non-specific low back pain (NSLBP) and its increasing spread, the need for instruments for the accurate diagnosis of back pain is evident in order to offer more effective treatment. One such instrument is the STarT Back Screening Tool (STarT) which is examined by numerous studies, while some of its psychometric dimensions still require attention. Therefore, the objective of this study was to assess the internal consistency and construct validity of this questionnaire to propose a modified version...

INTRODUCTION: Smartphone app-based goniometer (SG) are emerging as an alternative to Universal Goniometers (UG) in assessing joint range of motion (ROM). This study examined whether the experience level of examiner affected the reliability of assessing knee flexion (KF) and knee extension (KE) ROM using UG and SG. METHODS: Participants with osteoarthritis of the knee or following total knee replacement were recruited. KF and KE ROM using UG and SG were assessed twice by an experienced physical therapist (PT) and a student PT (SPT)...

INTRODUCTION: The reliability of the information on the Internet, which people use as an easy and practical solution about diseases, is essential for public health. Our aim in this study is to evaluate the quality and readability of websites related to myofascial pain syndrome. METHODS: On April 4, 2020, websites were searched on the Google search engine using the term "myofascial pain syndrome". The typologies, quality, readability, and content parameters of the sites were analyzed...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The thoracolumbar junction syndrome or Maigne's syndrome is one of the causes of low back pain, for which no comprehensive treatment has yet been proposed. This case report aims to assess the effectiveness of a global physiotherapy approach, such as the Mézières method, to reduce pain and improve posture and mobility in a patient with thoracolumbar junction syndrome (TLJS). CASE DESCRIPTION: A 42-year-old woman patient presented a chronic nonspecific low back pain associated with severe pain in the right inguinal fold which has disabled her for two years...

BACKGROUND: Stroke is the leading cause of long-term disability in adults, causing residual sensorimotor deficits in many survivors. Patients may have different impairments according to laterality of injury, as well as different responses to some therapies. OBJECTIVE: This preliminary study sought to investigate motor learning in rehabilitation of stroke patients with non-immersive virtual environment by process (electroencephalography) and product (performance) measures in stroke patients with left and right cerebral hemispheres damage...

OBJECTIVES: To compare acute effects of isometric abdominal exercises performed with or without vibration on the electromyographic activity and cutaneous temperature in the abdominal region of physically active individuals. METHODS: A randomized controlled crossover clinical trial was undertaken in thirty volunteers who completed one unique session of two different protocols of interventions apart from a week from each other, in a two-week study protocol. The subjects were randomly divided in to two groups of 15 volunteers; both were assigned to perform board exercise (30 s on the front, right and left lateral boards, with a rest interval of 2 min)...
