Predicting physical activity recovery after hip and knee arthroplasty? A longitudinal cohort study
Julien Lebleu, Hervé Poilvache, Philippe Mahaudens, Roel De Ridder, Christine Detrembleur
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.12.002

  • 146 patients were rehabilitated by a mobile health program after arthroplasty

  • Physical activity (PA) was recorded each day by means of fitness trackers

  • Patient reached their pre-operative physical activity level at 7-week post-surgery

  • This study identified predictors for physical activity recovery

  • Migraine is associated with high levels of disability and comorbidities.

  • Disability levels can be influenced by the presence of aura and migraine chronicity.

  • Manual and exercise therapy aim to reduce musculoskeletal pain and sensitization.

  • Balance and vestibular rehabilitation is suggested to enhance function and reduce dizziness.

  • Patients may benefit from physical examination and tailored treatment paths including education.

Using research to guide practice: The Physiotherapy Evidence Database (PEDro)
Anne M. Moseley, Mark R. Elkins, Philip J. Van der Wees, Marina B. Pinheiro
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.11.002

  • PEDro is a free global resource to support evidence-based physical therapy

  • PEDro indexes trials, reviews, and guidelines of physical therapy interventions

  • PEDro web-site, newsletter, videos, and social media are available in Portuguese

  • Trials are pre-appraised with the PEDro scale (Portuguese version available)

  • Keep up to date in 15 areas of practice with PEDro’s ‘Evidence in your inbox’

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
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.10.003

  • 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.

Courtney M. Butowicz, Marisa Pontillo, David Ebaugh, Sheri P. Silfies
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.10.002

  • 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.

  • 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
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.09.002

  • 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
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.09.001

  • 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
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.07.010

  • 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.
