Quantifying step length using two-dimensional video in individuals with Parkinson's disease.

Physiother Theory Pract 2019 Mar 21:1-4. Epub 2019 Mar 21.

a Rinker-Ross School of Health Sciences, Doctor of Physical Therapy Program , Trine University , Fort Wayne , IN , USA.

Individuals with Parkinson's disease demonstrate a shorter step length compared to individuals without the disorder, which may place them at greater risk for falls. As a result, rehabilitation professionals often attempt to increase or maintain step length in this population. The ability to quantify step length may be useful for tracking changes or identifying individuals who may be at risk for a fall. Read More

Hip exercises improve intravaginal squeeze pressure in older women.

Physiother Theory Pract 2019 Feb 1:1-8. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

a Doctor of Physical Therapy Program , San Diego State University , San Diego , CA , USA.

Objective: Pelvic Floor Muscle Training (PFMT), an accepted treatment for incontinence and pelvic floor dysfunction, has good evidence, though it is unknown if adjunct therapies can be useful. Strengthening the obturator internus (OI), along with other hip external rotator muscles, may help strengthen the pelvic floor muscles (PFM) through fascial attachment. We hypothesized that strengthening the hip external rotators will improve intravaginal squeeze pressure in older women. Read More

Laser testing for upper extremity proprioceptive deficits following rotator cuff injury: two case reports.

Physiother Theory Pract 2019 Jan 24:1-9. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

a Brooks Rehabilitation , Jacksonville , FL , USA.

Background: Rotator cuff (RTC) dysfunction incidence ranges from 7% to 25% in the general population with a high recurrence rate. RTC musculature plays a significant role in dynamic stability of the glenohumeral joint with damage to these structures associated with proprioceptive impairments. Impaired proprioception has been linked to increased injury risk in other body regions; however, similar relationships with the upper extremity have not been extensively evaluated. Read More

Exercise adherence: beliefs of adults with knee osteoarthritis over 2 years.

Physiother Theory Pract 2019 Jan 17:1-16. Epub 2019 Jan 17.

d Department of Physical Therapy , MGH Institute of Health Professions , Boston , MA , USA.

Exercise is an established treatment to alleviate pain and improve function among adults with knee osteoarthritis (KOA). However, long-term adherence to exercise is poor and effective approaches to support adherence are limited. Here, we report on an ancillary study to a randomized controlled trial (RCT) where the primary outcome was 2-year adherence to a home based strength-training program. Read More

Background: Osteoporosis (OP) is a metabolic bone disease defined by low bone strength and deterioration of bone tissue, which has wide clinical presentations. The World Health Organization's International Classification of Functioning Disability and Health (ICF) provides a common language, classification system, and conceptual framework to describe the consequences of health conditions in terms of body function and structure, activities and participation, environmental and personal factors.

Objectives: The ICF conceptual framework was used, in this paper, to integrate OP research-based knowledge into clinical application using clinical vignettes. Read More

Background: Allgrove syndrome is a multisystem disorder first described in 1978 and is classically associated with esophageal achalasia, alacrima, and adrenal insufficiency. Allgrove syndrome is caused by homozygous and/or compound heterozygous mutations on Chromosome 12q13, designated as "AAA" (Achalasia, Addisonianism Alacrima). AAA encodes the protein ALADIN (Alacrima, Achalasia, aDrenal Insufficiency Neurologic disorder), a member of the nuclear porin family forming the nuclear pore complex. Read More

The effects of dual task gait and balance training in Parkinson's disease: a systematic review.

Physiother Theory Pract 2018 Dec 3:1-9. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

a Laboratory of Motor Behavior, School of Physical Education and Sport , University of São Paulo , São Paulo , Brazil.

In patients with Parkinson's disease (PD), the ability to perform simultaneous tasks may be impaired. However, there is no consensus as to whether the strategy of use dual task (DT) should be used with PD patients during gait and balance training because DT can increase the risk of falls. Therefore, it is necessary to critically analyze the relevant studies and evaluate the indications for the use of DT and its effects as a therapeutic strategy. Read More
