Funding is related to the quality, conduct, and reporting of trial reports in musculoskeletal physical therapy: A survey of 210 published trials.

CONCLUSION: Trial funding was positively associated with having multiple departments represented in the research team, larger sample size, higher quality, and publication in higher impact factor journals. PMID: 27617707 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Tedla JS, Sangadala DR Abstract This systematic review aims to determine the effectiveness of proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) treatment techniques in adhesive capsulitis for decreasing pain and disability and increasing range of motion (ROM) and function. A thorough, computerized search was done using database search engines by two reviewers. After meticulous scrutiny and screening of 410 studies, according to the selection criteria, 10 full-text articles were included in the review and meta-analysis. All 10 studies had undergone a methodological quality assessment by the Physiotherapy Evid...

Neuropediatrics DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-3400987The aim of this paper is to provide a clinically applicable overview of different tone reducing modalities and how these can interact with or augment concurrent physical therapy (PT). Botulinum toxin (BoNT), oral tone-regulating medication, intrathecal baclofen (ITB), and selective dorsal rhizotomy are discussed within a physiotherapeutic context and in view of current scientific evidence. We propose clinical reasoning strategies to identify treatment goals as well as the appropriate and corresponding treatment interventions. Instrumented measurement of spasticity, standardized cl...

Background: Exercise intolerance is hallmark of patients with severe respiratory diseases. Even after lung transplantation (LTx), exercise capacity may not recover fully because of existing skeletal muscle dysfunction.Aim: By tracking longitudinal clinical course, we aimed to explore determinant of long-term recovery of exercise capacity after LTx.Methods: We consecutively enrolled patients who underwent LTx at Kyoto University Hospital. Patients who performed 1-year follow-up evaluation after LTx including exercise capacity (6-minute walk distance; 6MWD) and chest CT were followed-up for additional 1 year (second year aft...

Abstract Given the limitations of current inventories of basic psychological need measurement, and the importance of psychological need support within an injury rehabilitation context, there is an evident need to develop the present inventory. Utilizing Self-Determination Theory (SDT) as a theoretical framework, two studies were conducted to develop and psychometrically test a measure of patients' perceptions of basic psychological needs support in physical therapy: The Basic Psychological Needs Support in Physical Therapy Questionnaire (BPNS-PT). In study 1, a panel of Self-Determination Theory academics assessed...

ConclusionsOur findings question the construct validity of the PEDro scale to assess the methodological quality of clinical trials. PEDro summary scores should not be used; rather the physiotherapy community should consider working with the individual items of the scale.
