Post-stroke shoulder pain subtypes classifying criteria: towards a more specific assessment and improved physical therapeutic care
Manuel Torres-Parada, Jamile Vivas, Vanesa Balboa-Barreiro, José Marey-López
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.02.010

  • There are at least two PSSP clinical profiles differing in onset and course.

  • PSSP subtypes may be classified by degree of shoulder muscle impairment.

  • Severe PSSP subtype seems to be associated with somatosensory sensitization.

  • Low PSSP subtype onset is usually delayed and detected by primary care departments.

  • The MPOC-SP and MPOC-20 – Portuguese Brazil have overall adequate reliability.

  • The MPOCs can be used to assess family centered practice in rehabilitation.

Barbara Alice Junqueira Murta, Thiago Ribeiro Teles Santos, Priscila Albuquerque Araujo, Renan Alves Resende, Juliana Melo Ocarino
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.02.002

  • This study investigated the influence between pelvis–trunk–shoulder.

  • Active reduction of anterior pelvic tilt decreased trunk extension.

  • Active reduction of anterior pelvic tilt increased lower trapezius activity.

Thiago Paulo Frascareli Bento, Caio Vitor dos Santos Genebra, Nicoly Machado Maciel, Guilherme Porfírio Cornelio, Sandra Fiorelli Almeida Penteado Simeão, Alberto de Vitta
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.01.012

  • This study shows a high prevalence of low back pain over a one week period.

  • Older age, low education, hypertension and smoking were associated with back pain in men.

  • Occupational and ergonomic factors were associated with back pain in women.

Measurement properties of quality assessment tools for studies of diagnostic accuracy
Mark A. Kaizik, Alessandra N. Garcia, Mark J. Hancock, Robert D. Herbert
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.01.009

  • First head-to-head comparison of QUADAS, QUADAS-2, DAQS measurement properties.

  • Inter-tester reliability of individual items of the tools was poor.

  • Summary scores were imprecise and convergent validity was often low.

  • The quality of the included studies was mixed.

  • A new quality assessment tool should exclude items relating to generalizability.

Higher order thinking about differential diagnosis
Chad E. Cook, Simon Décary
10.1016/j.bjpt.2019.01.010

  • Diagnosis is designed to improve communication and documentation about a patient's condition and should help refine treatment options for patients. A diagnosis allows clinicians to “cross-talk” and reduce variability of care.

  • Higher order thinking is a form of thinking and learning that requires greater cognitive processing and indirectly requires different forms of learning beyond memorization, facts and, concepts. Higher order thinking occurs after one makes a diagnosis.

  • Diagnostic metrics are either internal (in that they provide information about the test only) or external (in that they provide information about post-test decision making). The best tests influence post-test decision making.

  • Overdiagnosis may lead to overtreatment. A caveat exists that over-pursuing diagnoses may lead to worse outcomes.

  • Within a diagnosis are specific phenotypes. Thus, multiple patients may have a single diagnosis but present markedly differently and respond to different outcomes.

Complexity of knee extensor torque in patients with frailty syndrome: a cross-sectional study
Bianca Ferdin Carnavale, Elie Fiogbé, Ana Claudia Silva Farche, Aparecida Maria Catai, Alberto Porta, Anielle Cristhine de Medeiros Takahashi
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.12.004

  • Knee extensor torque complexity is reduced in the presence of frailty syndrome.

  • Frail participants showed a reduction in body mass, peak knee extensor torque and decreased physical performance.

  • The relationship between complexity and force levels was similar in all groups.

Interventions used for Rehabilitation and Prevention of Patellar Tendinopathy in athletes: a survey of Brazilian Sports Physical Therapists
Luciana De Michelis Mendonça, Natália Franco Netto Bittencourt, Laís Emanuelle Meira Alves, Renan Alves Resende, Fábio Viadanna Serrão
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.12.001

  • Education, joint stabilization, and myofascial release were most used for patellar tendinopathy rehabilitation.

  • Quadriceps eccentrics, education, joint stabilization and lumbo-pelvic stabilization and hamstrings stretching were frequently used for patellar tendinopathy prevention.

  • Brazilian physical therapists consider pain, function and functional test results to discharge an athlete.

  • Our results revealed an inconsistency between interventions used in clinical practice and interventions recommended by the best available evidence.

Viviane Bortoluzzi Frasson, Marco Aurélio Vaz, Anete Beling Morales, Anna Torresan, Marco Aurélio Telöken, Paulo David Fortis Gusmão, Marcus Vinicius Crestani, Bruno Manfredini Baroni
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.11.010

  • Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) syndrome patients had losses in hip muscle strength.

  • Flexion and rotation movements are reduced in FAI syndrome patients.

  • Reduced hip strength and motion should be considered during rehabilitation programs.
