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]

A 46-year-old man originally from Vietnam with no known long-term medical conditions presented to a primary care clinic for evaluation of gradually progressive, left-sided, lower back pain accompanied by resolving flulike symptoms. He had a history of episodic back pain dating to his mid-20s, but the cause had never been determined. Unlike his prior episodes, on this occasion he first noticed the discomfort after what he thought was a flulike illness, characterized by fevers, chills, myalgia, malaise, and headache, as well as a 6.8-kg unintended weight loss.

A lack of adequate lumbopelvic movement control has been suggested as an underlying mechanism contributing to the development and persistence of low back pain and lower limb pathologies. The purpose of this study was to assess the within and between session reliability (i.e. the ability to discriminate between subjects), and the agreement (i.e. whether scores are identical on repeated measures) of lumbopelvic kinematics in the sagittal plane during functional movement control tasks. Kinematics were measured with a portable inertial measurement unit system.

Conclusion People living with OA in their knees often spend many years having difficulty managing their pain before they are able to have surgery. From recent research in New Zealand, I don’t think many people are offered a pain “education” approach, and indeed, I’d bet there are a lot of people who don’t get referred for movement-based therapy either. Misunderstanding is rife in OA, with some people uncertain of the difference between osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, and others very worried that they’re going to “wear the joint out” if they exercise. While OA isn&rsq...

Kamper, Hopin Lee, Amanda Williams, Kate M. O'Brien, Christopher M. Williams The evidence base regarding treatment for back pain does not align with clinical practice. Currently there is relatively little evidence to guide health decision-makers on how to improve the use, uptake or adoption of evidence-based recommended practice for low back pain. Improving the design, conduct and reporting of strategies to improve the implementation of back pain care will he...
