Perceived risks and benefits of hippotherapy among parents of children currently engaged in or waiting for hippotherapy: A pilot study.

CONCLUSION: Minimization of the perceived risks compared to the numerous perceived benefits could create clinical issues such as the client putting self at risk of injuries (e.g., bites, falls, and kicks) if not cautious enough or complications insufficiently prevented, which suggests the need to develop educational activities for an informed consent to this type of rehabilitation.

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: Locke R, Wilkinson E, Collier R, Harden B Abstract The General Practice Contract 2019/20 established first contact musculoskeletal (MSK) physiotherapists in primary care. This paper describes an evaluation exploring the feasibility of using the MSK Core Capabilities Framework and a peer review process to evidence capability. It discusses how this process may be developed to ensure MSK practitioners are able to evidence the level of practice required within the complex environment of primary care. MSK practitioners were supported to evidence their capabilities against the MSK Framework. Twenty-two participa...

AbstractIntroductionParkinson ’s disease (PD) is managed primarily by dopamine agonists and physiotherapy while virtual reality (VR) has emerged recently as a complementary method. The present study reviewed the effectiveness of VR in rehabilitation of patients with PD.MethodsLiterature search up to June 2019 identified ten studies (n = 343 participants) suitable for meta-analysis and 27 studies (n = 688 participants) for systematic review. Standard mean difference (SMD) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were calculated using a random effects model.ResultsIn meta-analysis, compared with active rehabilitation interven...

This study was designed to assess the long-term outcomes with a new two phase physiotherapy protocol following conservative resection of the ankylotic mass.Materials and methods143 patients who were treated for TMJa were initially recruited, among whom 98 were inducted into the study and retrospectively evaluated using clinical records and 3-dimensional computed tomography. All the patients underwent a minimal pre auricular incision and conservative interpositional gap arthroplasty with collagen membrane. This was followed by the new two phase physiotherapy protocol with the use of a bite block. The primary outcome measure...

It was on November 21st that I was last in Copenhagen, not to have some of that famous Æbleflæsk but to moderate an OECD event. I was tasked to challenge health ministers and other policy makers about the impact of advanced technologies on patients’ lives and what regulations would facilitate these changes. It was encouraging to see country leaders take a positive stance towards digital health and to hear about concrete examples as to how they are implementing technology to modify their local healthcare landscape. This experience served as an inspiration to write this article. In it we will highli...

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...
