Therapies for bruxism: a systematic review and network meta-analysis (protocol)

DiscussionThis systematic review aims at identifying and evaluating therapies to treat bruxism. This systematic review may lead to several recommendations, for both patients and researchers, as which is the best therapy for a specific patient case and how future studies need to be designed, considering what is available now and what is the reality of the patient.Systematic review registrationPROSPEROCRD42015023308

A question I’ve asked myself many times! As a small profession with a long history (as long as physiotherapy, TBH), it does seem odd that there are many, many pain rehabilitation services where never an occupational therapist has darkened the door. Some of the reasons lie within the profession: in general, occupational therapists are busy being clinicians and have little time for research. In New Zealand, few occupational therapists pursue higher degrees, and many avoid statistical analyses, experimental design, randomised controlled studies. In fact, some occupational therapists have argued that the tailored appr...

CONCLUSION: Tai Chi exerts significantly greater effects on patients with FM than standard care; therefore, we suggest that Tai Chi can be used as an alternative treatment. However, more large-scale, high-quality, and multicenter trials are required to provide stronger evidence on the effectiveness of Tai Chi, as an alternative to aerobic exercise, compared with conventional therapeutic exercise.

ConclusionThis alternative model to the traditional hospital-based rehabilitation model needs to be considered in future service planning.

CONCLUSIONS: Well-powered studies to truly detect pillow impact on waking symptoms and sleep quality require 400+ symptomatic subjects. CLINICAL REHABILITATION IMPACT: It has previously been reported that using a latex or polyester pillow significantly improves waking cervical symptoms in the general population. This pilot study did not replicate these results in people with known cervical spine degeneration. PMID: 31489809 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Zampogna E, Centis R, Negri S, Fiore E, Cherubino F, Pignatti P, Heffler E, Canonica GW, Sotgiu G, Saderi L, Migliori GB, Spanevello A, Visca D Abstract BACKGROUND: Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR) is a multimodal treatment that is still poorly investigated in severe asthma where respiratory symptoms remain 'uncontrolled' despite intensive pharmacological therapy. Bronchiectasis and obstructive sleep apnoea (OSAS) are common comorbidities which may worsen asthma control. AIM: Aim of the present study is to investigate the effectiveness of PR on functional exercise, dyspnoea, and muscle fatigue in patients...

AbstractPrader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a genetic disorder characterized by short stature, low lean body mass, muscular hypotonia, mental retardation, behavioral abnormalities, dysmorphic features, and excessive appetite with progressive obesity. It is caused by lack of expression of genes on the paternally inherited chromosome 15q11.2-q13. This genetic disorder has an estimated prevalence that ranges between 1/10,000 –1/30,000. Hypothalamic dysfunction is a common finding in PWS and it has been implicated in several manifestations of this syndrome such as hyperphagia, temperature instability, high pain threshold, sle...

Conclusions Aging leads to a progressive decrease in androgen production that, in turn, leads to the development of LOH, defined by significant low T serum levels (in the lowest quartile) in the presence of signs and symptoms of hypogonadism (51). LOH could be due to both testicular and hypothalamic-pituitary dysfunction (32), and ED is one of its main symptoms. ED in LOH is linked to increased oxidative stress, subclinical inflammation, and subsequent endothelial dysfunction (101). In elderly men, it has been shown that LOH is also linked to lower cAMP pool and to an alteration of the cGMP signaling pathway. PDE5 gene l...

▒ G, Sucak GT Abstract BACKGROUND: A limited number of studies have reported impairments in physical activity, exercise capacity and quality of life (QOL) in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allogeneic-HSCT) recipients. We aimed to compare dyspnea, exercise capacity, physical activity and QOL in allogeneic-HSCT recipients with age-gender matched healthy individuals, since this has not been investigated hitherto. METHODS: A total of 80 allogeneic-HSCT recipients (>100 days status post-transplantation) (38.88 ± 13.25 years) and 60 healthy individuals (35.92 ...
