Hip muscle weakness and reduced joint range of motion in patients with femoroacetabular impingement syndrome: a case-control study
Viviane Bortoluzzi Frasson, Marco Aurélio Vaz, Anete Beling Morales, Anna Torresan, Marco Aurélio Telöken, Paulo David Fortis Gusmão, Marcus Vinicius Crestani, Bruno Manfredini Baroni

  • 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.

Exploring the pre-morbid contexts in which central sensitisation developed in individuals with non-specific chronic low back pain. A qualitative study
Jacqui R. Clark, Peter C. Goodwin, Gillian Yeowell
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.10.012

  • Pre-morbid contexts may relate to the onset of central sensitisation in chronic low back pain.

  • Themes of developmental learning experiences and personal characteristics emerged.

  • Themes of physical and emotional sensitivities and traumas also emerged.

  • These four themes may be linked with autonomic stress responses and central sensitisation pain.

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.

The minimal important difference for Glittre-ADL test in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
Aline Almeida Gulart, Cintia Laura Pereira de Araujo, Anelise Bauer Munari, Karoliny dos Santos, Manuela Karloh, Betina Gabriele Foscarini, Pedro Dal Lago, Anamaria Fleig Mayer
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.11.009

  • Glittre-ADL test minimal important difference (MID) is −0.38min in COPD patients.

  • Glittre-ADL test's MID reflects the changes in functional capacity.

  • Two tests are necessary for interpretation of changes induced by pulmonary rehabilitation.

EMG breakthrough during cortical silent period in congenital hemiparesis: a descriptive case series
Maíra C. Lixandrão, James W. Stinear, Tonya Rich, Chao-Ying Chen, Tim Feyma, Gregg D. Meekins, Bernadette T. Gillick
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.11.002

  • Variability exists in the duration of ipsilesional and contralesional cortical silent period durations in children with congenital hemiparesis.

  • EMG breakthrough activity was consistently observed during ipsilesional CSP assessment.

  • The amplitude of ipsilesional EMG breakthrough was higher than contralesional EMG breakthrough.

What are the clinical implications of knee crepitus to individuals with knee osteoarthritis? An observational study with data from the Osteoarthritis Initiative
Marcella Ferraz Pazzinatto, Danilo de Oliveira Silva, Nathálie Clara Faria, Milena Simic, Paulo Henrique Ferreira, Fábio Mícolis de Azevedo, Evangelos Pappas
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.11.001

  • Presence of knee crepitus did not affect knee strength or objective function.

  • People with knee crepitus present lower self-reported physical function (small effect).

  • People with knee crepitus present lower quality of life (small effect).

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.

Communicating vessels volumeter to measure upper extremity in lymphedema after breast cancer: reliability and criterion validity compared to the gold standard
Rogério Mendonça de Carvalho, Fausto Miranda Jr
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.10.015

  • Lymphedema reduces the quality of life of patients after breast cancer.

  • Objective measurement of lymphedema is essential to monitor treatment.

  • Circumference and costly measurements are inaccurate for irregular surfaces.

  • CVV volumes were statistically equal to those of the overflow method.

  • CVV volumes were closer to the actual volume of the phantom.

Seven cervical sensorimotor control tests measure different skills in individuals with chronic idiopathic neck pain
Rutger M.J. de Zoete, Peter G. Osmotherly, Darren A. Rivett, Suzanne J. Snodgrass
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.10.013

  • Seven cervical sensorimotor control tests measure different skills.

  • Tests cannot be grouped according to the subsystems of sensorimotor control.

  • Clinicians have to perform each test, as each test provides unique information.

Roberta de Oliveira Máximo, Jair Licio Ferreira Santos, Mônica Rodrigues Perracini, Cesar de Oliveira, Yeda Aparecida de Oliveira Duarte, Tiago da Silva Alexandre
10.1016/j.bjpt.2018.10.009

  • Dynapenia and abdominal obesity were associated with single fall.

  • Dynapenic-abdominal obesity people are more likely to fall.

  • Dynapenia was the unique condition associated with recurrent falls.
