Benefits of vestibular rehabilitation on patient-reported outcomes in older adults with vestibular disorders: a randomized clinical trial
Mayra Cristina Aratani, Natalia Aquaroni Ricci, Heloísa Helena Caovilla, Fernando Freitas Ganança

  • Vestibular disorders have a negative impact on older adults’ physical performance and quality of life.

  • Conventional and multimodal vestibular rehabilitation showed no difference on patient-reported outcomes.

  • Vestibular rehabilitation changes patient-reported outcomes in older people with dizziness.

  • All patient-reported outcomes changes were maintained during a short-term period of three months.

Can Kinesio Taping® influence the electromyographic signal intensity of trunk extensor muscles in patients with chronic low back pain? A randomized controlled trial
Leandro Garcia Pires, Rosimeire Simprini Padula, Maurício Antônio Da Luz Junior, Irlei Santos, Matheus Oliveira Almeida, Shaiane Silva Tomazoni, Lucíola Cunha Menezes Costa, Leonardo Oliveira Pena Costa

  • It is hypothesized that Kinesio Taping® can change muscle activity in patients with low back pain.

  • The Kinesio Taping® technique did not change the electromyographic signal intensity of the longissimus and iliocostalis muscles or reduce pain intensity in patients with chronic low back pain.

  • More research on mechanisms of action is needed.

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.
