A new method of measuring shoulder hand behind back movement: Reliability, values in symptomatic and asymptomatic people, effect of hand dominance, and side-to-side variability.

A new method of measuring shoulder hand behind back movement: Reliability, values in symptomatic and asymptomatic people, effect of hand dominance, and side-to-side variability. Physiother Theory Pract. 2016 Sep 12;:1-8 Authors: Satpute K, Hall T, Kumar S, Deodhar A Abstract Shoulder hand behind back (HBB) range of motion (ROM) is a useful measure of impairment and treatment outcome. The purpose of this repeated measures study was to identify inter- and intra-rater reliability, of a new simplified method of measuring HBB ROM. Two experienced raters measured HBB ROM with a bubble inclinometer on 25 people (aged 42-75 years, 14 female) with unilateral shoulder dysfunction and 25 age- and gender-matched asymptomatic subjects on two different occasions. Statistical analysis included calculation of intra-class correlation coefficients (ICCs), minimal detectable change (MDC), standard error of measurement (SEM), Pearson correlation coefficient (r), coefficient of determination (R(2)), and the lower bound score. Mean HBB ROM was 108.6° (SD = 16.3) and 23.9° (SD = 10.5) on the pain-free and symptomatic side, respectively. Both intra-rater and inter-rater reliability were high (ICC> 0.80). For asymptomatic people the SEM was at most 3° and MDC was 8° with a strong correlation between the dominant and nondominant sides (r> 0.72). The mean absolute values and lower bound scores were at most 10.2° and 26.0°, respectively. These results ...

Abstract The prolonged disability associated with musculoskeletal (MSK) pain represents an enormous health burden, for individuals as well as society. Promoting pain and disability management for patients with persistent MSK-related conditions can be very challenging for rehabilitation professionals. These often-complex conditions require the adoption of a biopsychosocial perspective in order to assess and address a vast array of potential factors affecting the patient. Fortunately, a self-management (SM) approach has been deemed effective in enhancing patients' control over their symptoms and disabilities. Howeve...

Conclusion: Our results indicate that increase in disability level caused by LBP may lead to decrease in respiratory muscle strength and exercise capacity. So evaluating and training the respiratory muscle strength and exercise capacity is essential for this population and also may crucial for respiratory diseases who complains LBP.

Conclusions: Personal conflicts were identified between clinicians' descriptions of their wishes to "sell" their own perspectives to patients while simultaneously wanting to demonstrate a patient-focused approach and avoid the interpersonal conflicts which arose from clashes with patients' beliefs. Building a good initial rapport, showing empathy and adapting approaches in response to perceptions of patients' reactions were perceived as strategies to help mitigate the risks of failed communication, but this was something for which participants felt unprepared by their prior training.

ConclusionsAdherence was problematic. Benefits at 4  months did not persist and at 12 months, we found no significant differences between treatments. There is inadequate evidence a short physiotherapy intervention of either manual therapy or home exercise provides long-term benefits, but arguably short-term benefits are valuable.Trial registrationISRCTN 49117867.
