  • 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.

  • Aging reduces rib cage contribution and increase abdominal contribution.

  • Aging increases end-inspiratory and end-expiratory chest wall volumes.

  • Sitting position might benefit patients who present reduced tidal volume.

  • Posture influences all variables of breathing pattern and chest wall motion, except respiratory rate and duty cycle.

  • Women present higher thoracic contribution to the tidal volume.

  • The LCADL%total reflected better outcomes for COPD when compared to LCADLtotal.

  • The 28% cut-off point for LCADL has clinically relevant discriminatory power.

  • The LCADLtotal may compromise the interpretation of the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program effects.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Braz J Phys Ther. 2020;24:177-84
1682

  • 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.
