Tackling the language barrier to implementing research into practice: A survey of usage of the physiotherapy evidence database
Alla Melman, Mark R. Elkins, Steven J. Kamper, Anne M. Moseley

  • Language is a barrier to implementing research evidence into practice.

  • Physiotherapy Evidence Database (PEDro) content is available in 13 languages.

  • English, Portuguese, Spanish, German, and French PEDro content is used the most.

  • Region-specific promotion of the underused PEDro content may facilitate global usage.

  • Awareness and collaboration between stakeholders could reduce the language barrier.

Comprehensive movement system screening tool (MSST) for athletes: Development and measurement properties
Courtney M. Butowicz, Marisa Pontillo, David Ebaugh, Sheri P. Silfies

  • Movement inefficiency and/or impaired stability and mobility increase athletic injury risk.

  • The movement system screening tool was developed to assess athletic injury risk factors.

  • The presented novel screen is a valid and reliable assessment of movement performance.

Lower limb kinematics and hip extensors strengths are associated with performance of runners at high risk of injury during the modified Star Excursion Balance Test
Larissa Santos Pinto Pinheiro, Juliana de Melo Ocarino, Natália Franco Netto Bittencourt, Thales Rezende Souza, Suelen Cristina de Souza Martins, Raffi Antunes Braga Bomtempo, Renan Alves Resende

  • Hip/knee flexion was associated with runners anterior reach distance in the modified star excursion balance test.

  • Hip flexion was associated with the posteromedial and knee flexion with the posterolateral reach.

  • Hip extensor strength was associated with posteromedial, posterolateral and composite reaches.

  • Trunk kinematics and strength were not associated with runners’ performance in this test.

Comparison of processing speed, balance, mobility and fear of falling between hypertensive and normotensive individuals
Isılay Ozaldemir, Gozde Iyigun, Mehtap Malkoc

  • The effects of hypertension on physical function should be considered.

  • Compared to normotensives hypertensives had slower processing speed.

  • Balance and mobility was decreased more in hypertensives than normotensives.

  • The fear of falling was higher in the hypertensives compared to normotensives.

  • Clinicians should include preventive and rehabilitative strategies in hypertensives.

Deficits in motor coordination of the paretic lower limb limit the ability to immediately increase walking speed in individuals with chronic stroke
Lucas Rodrigues Nascimento, Kênia Kiefer Parreiras de Menezes, Aline Alvim Scianni, Iza Faria-Fortini, Luci Fuscaldi Teixeira-Salmela

  • Tonus, strength, and motor coordination are associated with walking speed reserve.

  • LEMOCOT may be used to predict walking speed reserve.

  • Exercises aimed at improving lower limb motor coordination may have the potential to improve walking speed reserve.

Cardiovascular responses to low-intensity isometric handgrip exercise in coronary artery disease: effects of posture
Mariana de Oliveira Gois, Rodrigo Polaquini Simões, Alberto Porta, Vandeni Clarice Kunz, Carlos Marcelo Pastre, Aparecida Maria Catai

  • Posture influences cardiovascular responses during isometric handgrip exercise.

  • STANDING promotes higher cardiovascular stress when compared to SITTING and/or SUPINE.

  • CAD promoted higher arterial pressure responses (systolic and mean arterial pressure), but it was expected.

  • Isometric handgrip exercise can be prescribed to clinically stable CAD patients, with cardiovascular monitoring.

Pressure pain hypersensitivity and referred pain from muscle trigger points in elite male wheelchair basketball players
Ricardo Ortega-Santiago, Álvaro J. González-Aguado, César Fernández-de-las-Peñas, Joshua A. Cleland, Ana I. de-la-Llave-Rincón, Mateusz D. Kobylarz, Gustavo Plaza-Manzano

  • 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.
