Viviane Bortoluzzi Frasson, Marco Aurélio Vaz, Anete Beling Morales, Anna Torresan, Marco Aurélio Telöken, Paulo David Fortis Gusmão, Marcus Vinicius Crestani, Bruno Manfredini Baroni
2023

  • 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.

  • 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.

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
1267

  • 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.

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
1133

  • 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.

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
1088

  • 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.

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
984

  • 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.

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
935

  • 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.

Can diaphragmatic breathing modify chest wall volumes during inspiratory loaded breathing in patients with heart failure?
Susan Martins Lage, Raquel Rodrigues Britto, Daniella Cunha Brandão, Danielle Aparecida Gomes Pereira, Armèle Dornelas de Andrade, Verônica Franco Parreira
Braz J Phys Ther. 2018;22:452-8
391

  • Inspiratory loaded breathing (ILB) modifies chest wall volumes in patients with heart failure (HF).

  • ILB associated with diaphragmatic breathing (ILBdi) increases abdominal volume in these patients.

  • Chest wall tidal volume and breathing pattern variables are similar between ILB and ILBdi.

Strength of the lower limb and trunk muscles is associated with gait speed in individuals with sub-acute stroke: a cross-sectional study
Larissa Tavares Aguiar, Ludimylla Brennar Alves Camargo, Lorena Dasdores Estarlino, Luci Fuscaldi Teixeira-Salmela, Christina Danielli Coelho de Morais Faria
Braz J Phys Ther. 2018;22:459-66

  • Lower limb and trunk muscle strength are associated with comfortable/maximum gait speed in patients with sub-acute stroke.

  • Non-paretic dorsiflexors and left trunk lateral flexors predict comfortable/maximum gait speed in sub-acute stroke.

  • The effects of strengthening in these muscles on post-stroke gait speed need more investigation.

Prevalence of knee osteoarthritis in former athletes: a systematic review with meta-analysis
Fernanda O. Madaleno, Bruna A. Santos, Vanessa L. Araújo, Vinicius C. Oliveira, Renan A. Resende
Braz J Phys Ther. 2018;22:437-51
354

  • Prevalence of knee OA in former athletes was 30.0% (95% CI 20.0 to 40.0%).

  • Low-quality evidence suggests that this is likely to change with high-quality studies.

  • Diagnostic criteria for knee OA and sport modality may impact on estimated prevalence.
