Purpose of review Despite its critical roles in body movement, structure, and metabolism, skeletal muscle remains underappreciated in the context of rheumatoid arthritis. In rheumatoid arthritis, chronic inflammation, physical inactivity, and medication toxicities impair skeletal muscle. These skeletal muscle alterations contribute to continued rheumatoid arthritis disparities in physical function and cardiometabolic health. Recent findings In the prebiologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drug era, rheumatoid arthritis skeletal muscle atrophy was the central feature of ‘rheumatoid cachexia,’ a hypermetab...

Conclusions: Pediatric physical therapists play a critical role in working with families to promote their self-efficacy for using the modified ride-on car and their capacity for overcoming the inherent difficulties associated with use. Most of the reported perceived barriers are modifiable, at least to some degree, with likely effects on modified ride-on car use.

Conclusions: Our model predicts the gap between estimates of ideally and actually embedding school-based physical therapy services. While 4 variables predicted the gap, further research is needed to develop a predictive model of actual practice to inform school-based physical therapy practice.
