The Effect of Lumbar Disc Herniation on Musculoskeletal Loadings in the Spinal Region During Level Walking and Stair Climbing.
CONCLUSIONS LDH patients exhibited different kinetic alternations during level walking and stair climbing. However, both adaptive strategies added extra burdens to the trunk system and further increased the risk for development of LDH. PMID: 28796755 [PubMed - in process]
Today, the public has criticized health care as too high in technology and too low in touching. Computers take patients’ histories, provide a differential diagnosis, supply educational materials and even submit a bill for the services that we render. A new specialty — telemedicine — offers health care service to rural areas that were previously underserved or couldn’t afford the latest diagnostic technology. Telemedicine, a technology in its infancy, offers improved access to care, greater efficiency in diagnosis and treatment, improvement in productivity. Although telemedicine technology is accepte...
Mobilization and manipulation therapies are widely used to benefit patients with chronic low back pain. However, questions remain about their efficacy, dosing, safety, as well as how these approaches compare to other therapies.
ConclusionsAlthough student responses were generally good, there is still room for improvement, especially for non-indicated care. The quality of students ’ clinical decisions can be measured and thus has the potential to be used by chiropractic educators and regulatory bodies to identify student’s in need of assistance as well as to monitor chiropractic programs in relation to student competence.Trial registrationNot applicable.
ConclusionsDespite some differences in prognostic factors for trial participants with knee OA who were older and had more chronic conditions, similarity of outcome predictors across regional MSK pain sites provides evidence to support targeting of treatment based on prognostic factors rather than site of pain.This article is protected by copyright.

ConclusionThe identified associations between inflammatory MRI findings and pain characteristics indicate that axial inflammation to some degree induces a specific pain pattern. Thus, the results add to knowledge of axial inflammatory processes. However, all identified associations were weak, which compromises the use of IBP as a marker of axial inflammation.
Conclusions Aquatic exercise can statistically significantly reduce pain and increase physical function in patients with low back pain. Further high-quality investigations on a larger scale are required to confirm the results.
CONCLUSIONS: Our preliminary experience supports the success of coblation on pain relief, aiming to show progressively that this treatment is suitable even in case of great extrusions, which are generally treated only with surgical approach. It's not clear the usefulness of MRI control yet, even if in most of cases we could have found a certain reduction of expulsion degree. PMID: 29350650 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: In patients with suspected no-disc-related low back pain, the implementation of T2w FS and CE T1w FS sequences to the standard MR protocol could allow a better identification of degenerative-inflammatory changes more likely associated to the pain. PMID: 29350649 [PubMed - in process]
Abstract BackgroundLow back pain is common in the general population and in individuals with primary headaches. We assessed the relative frequency of self‐reported back pain in persons with and without primary headaches and examined pain sensitivity. MethodA population of 796 individuals completed a headache interview based on ICHD criteria and provided data of interest in a self‐administered questionnaire. Headache cases were classified into chronic (≥15) (CH) or episodic (
