Dry needling in chronic abdominal wall pain of uncertain origin.

J Bodyw Mov Ther 2019 Jan 2;23(1):94-98. Epub 2018 Feb 2.

Consultant Laparoscopic Surgeon, RMV Hospital, Bangalore, India.

Background: Abdominal wall pain is considered as pain that arises from the abdominal muscles rather than the underlying viscera or the spine. It is frequently overlooked and is often misdiagnosed, as these patients continue to suffer with pain. Many such patients would have even been subjected to a psychiatric evaluation in view of the absence of any ostensible clinical cause for the pain. Read More

A descriptive analysis of shoulder muscle activities during individual stages of the Turkish Get-Up exercise.

J Bodyw Mov Ther 2019 Jan 31;23(1):23-31. Epub 2018 Jan 31.

Division of Research and Innovation, Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, Toronto, ON, Canada. Electronic address:

The Turkish Get-Up (TGU) is a complex and multi-planar exercise; the performer begins in a supine lying position, progresses toward upright standing through a series of 7 stages while holding a mass overhead in one hand, and returns to the original supine lying position through a reversal of the same 7 stages. A descriptive analysis of shoulder muscle activity during the TGU may provide insight toward its use in training and rehabilitation contexts. Our objectives were to: (1) describe the activity patterns from a subset of muscles that span the glenohumeral joint during individual stages of the TGU, and (2) interpret these patterns through comparisons between left- and right-side muscles, and between the up and down phases of the TGU.

Postgraduate Program in Rehabilitation Sciences, Centro Universitário Augusto Motta, UNISUAM, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Electronic address:

Background: There is a hypothesis that the growing use of mobile phones in an inappropriate posture to text and read (text neck) could be a reason for the increasing prevalence of neck pain in the past decade. Before testing if there is an association between text neck and neck pain, it is necessary to develop reliable pragmatic tools appropriate to epidemiological studies.

Objectives: The primary aim of this study was to assess the reliability of the self-perception of text neck, as well as the reliability of physiotherapists' classification of the text neck. Read More
