Differences in the kinematics of the cervical and thoracic spine during functional movement in individuals with or without chronic neck pain: a systematic review.

Physiotherapy 2019 Jan 21. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

Health Sciences (Physiotherapy), University of Newcastle, Newcastle, Australia. Electronic address:

Background: Chronic neck pain is common, impacting a person's ability to complete functional tasks. One method of quantifying functional movement is three dimensional (3D) motion analysis, however, it is unknown whether it may detect alterations in movement kinematics in individuals with neck pain.

Objective: To systematically review studies to determine possible differences in cervical and thoracic kinematics during functional movement as measured by 3D motion analysis in individuals with neck pain compared to controls. Read More

Video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy: which patients require postoperative physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy 2019 Jan 11. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Department of Thoracic Surgery, Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust, Bordesley Green East, Birmingham B9 5SS, UK. Electronic address:

Objectives: Following major thoracic surgery physiotherapy is recommended to improve reduced lung volume, aid secretion clearance, and improve mobility, however, in many centres physiotherapy provision is variable following minimally invasive video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). The objective of this study was to observe frequency of problems potentially amenable to physiotherapy following VATS lobectomy, and to identify associated baseline factors of patients in whom physiotherapy may be beneficial.

Methods: A prospective observational study was performed including all consecutive cancer patients undergoing VATS lobectomy in a regional centre over 4years (2012-2016). Read More

Cognitive factors are associated with disability and pain, but not fatigue among physiotherapy attendees with persistent pain and fatigue.

Physiotherapy 2019 Jan 19. Epub 2019 Jan 19.

School of Health Sciences, University of Salford, Allerton Building, Salford, Manchester, M6 6PU, UK; Department of Research and Innovation, Northern Care Alliance NHS Group, Summerfield House, 544 Eccles New Road, Salford, Greater Manchester, M5 5AP, UK.

Objectives: Most research exploring the relationship between cognitive factors and pain, disability and fatigue in patients with persistent pain/fatigue has been performed in multi disciplinary environments. It is unclear whether these associations are consistent in other contexts. This study therefore aimed to establish the relationships between these factors in patients with persistent pain/fatigue referred for physiotherapy treatment. Read More

Promotion of physical activity for adolescents with cystic fibrosis: a qualitative study of UK multi disciplinary cystic fibrosis teams.

Physiotherapy 2019 Jan 26. Epub 2019 Jan 26.

Children's Health and Exercise Research Centre, Sport and Health Sciences, University of Exeter, St Luke's Campus, Exeter, UK.

Background: The Cystic Fibrosis Trust recently published a standards of care document which stated that patients should be given a physical activity (PA) programme based on their motivations, fitness, and willingness to be active. However, there remains much debate regarding the roles and responsibilities for PA promotion, as well as "optimal" recommendations and advice. This study aimed to qualitatively explore cystic fibrosis (CF) multidisciplinary teams (MDTs) advice, recommendations and practices relating to PA promotion for adolescents with CF. Read More

Physiotherapy 2019 Jan 11. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Research Institute of Primary Care and Health Sciences, Keele University, Keele, Staffordshire, ST5 5BG, United Kingdom.

Background: There is some evidence to support the use of suprascapular nerve blocks (SSNBs) to manage shoulder pain. Although many patients with shoulder pain are referred to physiotherapy, there are no data describing whether physiotherapists currently use SSNBs for these patients.

Effect of 4 weeks of whole-body vibration training in treating stress urinary incontinence after prostate cancer surgery: a randomised controlled trial.

Physiotherapy 2018 Sep 25. Epub 2018 Sep 25.

Department of Physiotherapy, College of Medical and Health Sciences, Ahlia University, Manama, Bahrain; Department of Physical Therapy for Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Faculty of Physical Therapy, Cairo University, Cairo, Egypt.

Background: Stress urinary incontinence is common in men after prostate cancer surgery. Rehabilitative interventions incorporate pelvic floor muscle training, biofeedback, electrical stimulation, lifestyle changes, or a combination of these strategies. However, little is known about the physiological impact of whole-body vibration for stress urinary incontinence after radical prostatectomy. Read More

Models used for case-mix adjustment of patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) in musculoskeletal healthcare: A systematic review of the literature.

Physiotherapy 2018 Nov 9. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

Arthritis Research UK Primary Care Centre, Research Institute for Primary Care & Health Sciences, Keele University, Staffordshire, ST5 5BG, United Kingdom.

Background: Case-mix adjustment is an established method to take account of variations across cohorts in baseline patient factors, when comparing health outcomes. Although commonplace, there is a lack of evidence as to the most appropriate case-mix adjustment model to use to enable fair comparisons of PROM data in musculoskeletal services.

Objectives: To conduct a systematic review summarising evidence of the development, validation, and performance of musculoskeletal case-mix adjustment models, and to make recommendations for future methods. Read More

Effectiveness of interventions for non-specific low back pain in older adults. A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Physiotherapy 2018 Nov 15. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

School of Rehabilitation Sciences, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Ottawa, ON, Canada; Bruyère Research Institute, Ottawa, ON, Canada; School of Human Kinetics, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Ottawa, ON, Canada.

Objectives: Systematically review the literature about all available interventions to manage non-specific low back pain (NSLBP) in older adults (≥60 years).

Design: We searched the Medline, EMBASE, CINAHL, LILACS, PEDro, and Cochrane CENTRAL databases reference lists for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) testing interventions for NSLBP. Two independent reviewers extracted data, assessed the risk of bias and completeness of the description of interventions. Read More
