  • Wheelchair basketball players with shoulder pain get localized pain sensitivity.

  • Basketball players without shoulder pain had similar pressure pain sensitivity.

  • Elite wheelchair basketball players with shoulder pain get active trigger points.

  • The referred pain elicited by active trigger points reproduced shoulder pain.

  • Basketball players without shoulder pain get similar latent trigger points.

Alterations in knee sensorimotor brain functional connectivity contributes to ACL injury in male high-school football players: a prospective neuroimaging analysis
Jed A. Diekfuss, Dustin R. Grooms, Katharine S. Nissen, Daniel K. Schneider, Kim D. Barber Foss, Staci Thomas, Scott Bonnette, Jonathan A. Dudley, Weihong Yuan, Danielle L. Reddington, Jonathan D. Ellis, James Leach, Michael Gordon, Craig Lindsey, Ken Rushford, Carlee Shafer, Gregory D. Myer

  • Prospective brain connectivity was evaluated in male high school football players.

  • Three athletes sustained complete ACL ruptures.

  • Twelve healthy athletes were matched based on school, age, height, weight, and grade.

  • Our sample (n = 3) of ACL-injured athletes exhibited prospective decreased connectivity.

  • We discuss augmenting ACL prevention programs with sensorimotor-based training.

Factors affecting exercise program adherence in acute hip fracture patients and impact on one-year survival
Ana María Rosas Hernández, Teresa Alarcón, Rocío Menéndez-Colino, Isabel Martín Maestre, Juan Ignacio González-Montalvo, Ángel Otero Puime

  • Three quarters of acute hip fracture patients were able to fully adhere with an Early Inpatient Exercise Program (EIEP).

  • Living at home, absence of disability/cognitive impairment and comorbidities before an acute hip fracture is associated with Early Inpatient Exercise Program adherence.

  • Early Inpatient Exercise Program adherence is an independent predictor of one-year survival in patients with acute hip fracture in community dwelling.

  • It is important to evaluate dynamic balance ability during fall risk assessment.

  • The Mini-BESTest was the strongest individual predictor of falls in PD.

  • Individuals with scores less than 21.5/28 had 70.7% greater chance of falling.

Prediction of maximum oxygen uptake through incremental exercise testing using ventilometry: a cross-sectional study
Fernando Policarpo Barbosa, Paulo Eugênio Silva, Andréa Carmen Guimarães, Carlos Soares Pernambuco, Estélio Henrique Dantas
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.07.002

  • The high operational cost of implementing CPET hampers its use.

  • Ventilometry combined to ergometric test can be used for estimating V˙ O2max.

  • We analyzed the reliability of ventilometry for estimating V˙ O2max.

  • We presented two reliable equations for estimating V˙ O2max.

Shoulder kinematics impact subacromial proximities: a review of the literature
Rebekah L. Lawrence, Jonathan P. Braman, Paula M. Ludewig
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.07.009

  • Altered shoulder kinematics are believed to contribute to rotator cuff pathology by reducing the subacromial space.

  • During arm elevation, the rotator cuff insertion is closest to the coracoacromial arch between 40° and 75° humerothoracic elevation.

  • Glenohumeral plane of elevation and axial rotation impact subacromial proximities in complex ways.

  • More research is needed to better understand the role of shoulder kinematics in the etiology of rotator cuff pathology.

  • A single cryolipolysis session has no effect on abdominal adipose tissue in healthy women.

  • Randomized controlled trial with blind assessor.

  • Ultrassonography was used as a method of evaluating the outcome.

Sedentary behavior: barriers and facilitators among older adults after hip fracture surgery. A qualitative study
Suzana Albuquerque de Moraes, Ecleide Cunico Furlanetto, Natalia Aquaroni Ricci, Monica Rodrigues Perracini
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.07.001

  • Physical complaints are not the only barriers to reduce sedentary behavior.

  • This population also experiences poor accessibility and lack of social support.

  • Individual barriers like demotivation and self-ageist stereotypes also emerged.

  • Physical therapists should have a comprehensive approach to manage sedentary behavior.

  • Understand barriers and facilitators may help design future clinical trials.
