How does context influence arm use after stroke? A qualitative content analysis among rural community-dwelling stroke survivors
Vasanthan Rajagopalan, Manikandan Natarajan, Johnson Alex, John M. Solomon
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.11.008

  • Personal and environmental context influence affected arm use of stroke survivors.

  • Rural stroke survivors have limited awareness and knowledge of active functional task practice.

  • For recovery of the affected upper extremity, many stroke survivors rely on passive recovery methods.

  • Self-engagement in active functional task practice is facilitated by an enriched home environment and perception of ongoing recovery.

Evidence of stabilizing exercises for low back- and pelvic girdle pain – a critical review
Britt Stuge
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.11.006

  • The evidence of core stabilization exercises is controversial.

  • Exercises need to be understood in the bio-psycho-social context.

  • Individually tailor the exercises to the patient's needs and capability.

  • Adherence might increase when the patients understand the aim of the exercises.

  • Exercises need to guided and supervised to secure performance and quality.

Reliability of two functional clinical tests to evaluate trunk and lumbopelvic neuromuscular control and proprioception in a healthy population
Cedric De Blaiser, Roel De Ridder, Tine Willems, Lieven Danneels, Philip Roosen
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.10.014

  • Scoring methods for two lumbopelvic sensorimotor control tests were developed.

  • Good to excellent reliability was found for the lateral step test scoring method.

  • Fair to excellent reliability was found for the lumbopelvic position–reposition test.

  • The lateral step down test can be used in clinical practice.

  • The scoring method for the lumbopelvic position–reposition test needs to improve.
