  • WBV alone showed limited evidence compared to minimal intervention.

  • Additional effect of WBV seems to decrease deficiencies and activity limitations.

  • New expensive interventions need to be followed by scientific evidence.

  • Very-low to low quality of evidence suggests caution in recommending WBV.

Prevalence of dyspnea after stroke: a telephone-based survey
Kênia K.P. Menezes, Lucas R. Nascimento, Maria Tereza M. Alvarenga, Patrick R. Avelino, Luci F. Teixeira-Salmela

  • The prevalence of dyspnea after a stroke was 44%.

  • Dyspnea is associated with activity limitations and restrictions in community participation after a stroke.

  • Stroke survivors, who had dyspnea, were six times more likely to report activity limitations and two times more likely to report restrictions in social participation.

Can muscle weakness and disability influence the relationship between pain catastrophizing and pain worsening in patients with knee osteoarthritis? A cross-sectional study
Ryo Tanaka, Kenta Hirohama, Junya Ozawa
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.08.011

  • We studied the likely mediator between pain catastrophizing and pain worsening.

  • This relationship was mediated by disability and muscle weakness.

  • Cognitive intervention for disability and muscle strengthening may be effective for relieving pain.

Effect of pulsed electromagnetic field on nonspecific low back pain patients: a randomized controlled trial
Ahmed Mohamed Elshiwi, Hamada Ahmed Hamada, Dalia Mosaad, Ibrahim Mohammed A. Ragab, Ghada Mohamed Koura, Saud Mashi Alrawaili

  • Magnetic therapy as a novel alternative treatment is suitable for managing LBP. Its advantage over the standard pharmacological intervention is due to fewer side effects.

  • Previous studies reflect that there is still a gap in selecting the optimum parameters of pulsed electromagnetic field for treating acute and chronic nonspecific LBP. Many studies used high intensity and frequency of the PEMF, while others applied low parameters of the PEMF. While this study used 50Hz frequency, with low intensity of 20Gauss.

  • The dose of with 50Hz and 20Gauss seems to be useful.

  • Better QoL of children with asthma is associated with a lower asthma severity.

  • Better QoL is associated with a good sleep quality.

  • Better QoL of children with asthma associated with a lower dyspnea after exercise.

Trunk asymmetry is associated with dominance preference: results from a cross-sectional study of 1029 children
Chiara Arienti, Riccardo Buraschi, Sabrina Donzelli, Fabio Zaina, Joel Pollet, Stefano Negrini
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.08.005

  • Left side dominance has a prevalence for trunk asymmetry.

  • Embryology factors could justify the development of left-right side dominance.

  • It is unclear how neuro-abnormality is common in trunk asymmetry with left convexity.

The effectiveness of dry needling for patients with orofacial pain associated with temporomandibular dysfunction: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Clécio Vier, Marina Barbosa de Almeida, Marcos Lisboa Neves, Adair Roberto Soares dos Santos, Marcelo Anderson Bracht
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.08.008

  • Dry needling (DN) is commonly used for Orofacial pain treatment.

  • DN is better than other interventions for pain in the short-term.

  • DN is better than sham therapy on pressure pain threshold in the short-term.

  • Due to the very low quality of evidence and the small effect size, caution is needed.

  • Randomized controlled trials of high methodological quality are needed.
