This study was part of ESPaCe, a national survey aimed at documenting the views of individuals with cerebral palsy and their families regarding MR services via a questionnaire, developed by a multidisciplinary group. The ESPaCe questionnaire included the Client Satisfaction Questionnaire (CSQ-8), whose total score was the primary outcome of this study. Survey participation was promoted nation-wide. The questionnaire could be completed by the person with cerebral palsy or their main carer. Analysis included the description of determinants across CSQ-8 quartiles and generalised linear modelling of the CSQ-8 score.ResultsFrom...
Conclusion: Non-odontogenic toothaches may be multifactorial. The case presented emphasizes the importance of a comprehensive evaluation to differentiate odontogenic pain from non-odontogenic pain. Irreversible dental procedures should be instituted after an accurate diagnosis and multidisciplinary management may be required in complex cases.

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...

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...
Sham-controlled trials of dry needling, a popular treatment for pain, use a range of methods and theoretical frameworks and most have high risk of bias. Critically, patient blinding is often unsuccessful and therapist blinding has not been attempted. The specific effects of dry needling on pain therefore remain unclear. Our objectives were to identify (1) important elements of active dry needling; (2) important elements of shams for dry needling.
Conclusion: New-graduate physiotherapists reflect strongly on challenges associated with the complexity of chronic pain and subsequent management. Readiness to manage chronic pain is strongly linked to direct experience and workplace support to foster confidence and perceived competency in this area.

CONCLUSIONS: The use of thermotherapy reduced NRS compared to the TENS and Placebo after 20, 110 min and 24 h. Thermotherapy demonstrated an increase in the PPT in the abdomen after 50 and 110 min and decreased the Br-MPQ scores after 110 min in patients with PD. PMID: 31779988 [PubMed - in process]
