  • Sedentary behaviour is characterised by a seated or reclined posture with a low energy expenditure of 1.0–1.5 metabolic equivalents (METS) during waking hours.

  • Too much sitting behaviour is associated with health deficits in the adult population.

  • There has been less examination of sedentary behaviours in people with COPD and bronchiectasis.

  • There was no difference in the high sedentary time between people with COPD and bronchiectasis.

  • No significant associations between sedentary time and functional performance or health-related quality of life were present.

  • Unloader brace did not change co-contraction of agonist and antagonist muscles.

  • Unloader brace produced changes in gluteal and gastrocnemius timing and amplitude, however, the clinical relevance is unclear.

  • There were no differences between adjusted and unadjusted brace conditions.

  • Brazilian physical therapists had positive attitudes regarding evidence-based practice.

  • Personal characteristics were poorly associated with evidence-based practice.

  • Organizational characteristics could be the main barriers for evidence-based practice.

  • Potential strategies to improve evidence-based practice should include mentoring and research-related activities.

  • Most patients reduced pain in 30% and 50% after the first week of treatment.

  • Most patients reported complete pain improvement after the last week of treatment.

  • Postural abnormalities are more common in people with emphysema.

  • People with emphysema have more head protraction and greater scapular elevation.

  • Postural differences exist between COPD patients and healthy individuals.

Short period of high-intensity inspiratory muscle training improves inspiratory muscle strength in patients with chronic kidney disease on hemodialysis: a randomized controlled trial
Thiago Dipp, Fabrício Edler Macagnan, Jociane Schardong, Rafael Oliveira Fernandes, Luisa Cioato Lemos, Rodrigo Della Méa Plentz
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.04.003

  • CKD patients commonly develop muscle atrophy with an impairment of exercise tolerance.

  • Randomized control trial with high-intensity IMT (70% MIP) for 5 weeks can reverse respiratory muscle strength loss.

  • Five weeks of IMT did not change exercise capacity or vascular function.

Overall confidence in the results of systematic reviews on exercise therapy for chronic low back pain: a cross-sectional analysis using the Assessing the Methodological Quality of Systematic Reviews (AMSTAR) 2 tool
Matheus Oliveira Almeida, Tiê Parma Yamato, Patricia do Carma Silva Parreira, Leonardo Oliveira Pena Costa, Steven Kamper, Bruno Tirotti Saragiotto
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.04.004

  • Overall confidence of reviews of exercise for low back pain was very low.

  • Higher confidence was found in Cochrane reviews and reviews with registered protocol.

  • Confidence in the results is important to generate unbiased clinical recommendations.

Combining balance-training interventions with other active interventions may enhance effects on postural control in children and adolescents with cerebral palsy: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Priscila Albuquerque de Araújo, Juliana Maria Pimenta Starling, Vinícius Cunha Oliveira, Ana Paula Bensemann Gontijo, Marisa Cotta Mancini
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.04.005

  • There was a large effect of BTI combined with other strategies on postural control at short-term.

  • Combining BTI with other intervention may enhance effects on postural control in young CP patients.

  • Due to the very low quality of the current evidence, caution is needed.

Quantifying acromiohumeral distance in elite male field hockey players compared to a non-athletic population
Fran Vanderstukken, Annelies Maenhout, Valentien Spanhove, Nick Jansen, Tom Mertens, Ann Marcelle Cools
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.04.006

  • With active abduction, field hockey players have a larger AHD than controls

  • AHD measurement may help decide who could benefit from AHD enlarging exercises

  • Subacromial space enlargement may add to shoulder tenability and injury prevention. Targeting athletes with smaller acromiohumeral distance(s) with specific exercises may contribute to the tenability of the shoulder and add to shoulder injury prevention.
