Authors: Notarnicola A, Maccagnano G, Gallone MF, Mastromauro L, Rifino F, Pesce V, Covelli I, Moretti B Abstract The physiotherapy treatment of low back pain (LBP) with physical stimulation offers different possibilities of application. Until now, the physical therapies used in LBP are laser therapy, ultrasonotherapy and currents. We conducted a clinical trial in order to verify whether shockwave therapy, which is very effective in treating tendinopathies and fracture consolidation delays, leads to clinical and electromyographic improvement in patients affected by LBP. We randomized thirty patients affected by LBP...

Authors: Bellido-Fernández L, Jiménez-Rejano JJ, Chillón-Martínez R, Gómez-Benítez MA, De-La-Casa-Almeida M, Rebollo-Salas M Abstract Background: There are a great number of interventions in physiotherapy, but with little evidence of their effectiveness in chronic low back pain. Therefore, this study assesses effectiveness of Massage Therapy and Abdominal Hypopressive Gymnastics and the combination of both to decrease pain and lumbar disability while increasing joint mobility and quality of life in patients with chronic nonspecific low back pain. Methods: A randomized, ...

The objective of this study was to replicate the previous validation study on the German PABS-PT. EFA was implemented to reexamine the underlying structure of the scale, and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was used to test the fit of the hypothesized two-factor model. Results of the initial validation study were not replicated. EFA indicated that a two-factor solution is an inadequate representation of the PABS-PT data, and CFA showed insufficient fit of the hypothesized two-factor model to the PABS-PT data. Our results indicate a need for caution when using the PABS-PT to measure physiotherapists' orientation toward LB...

Clinical reasoning has been defined as “the process by which a therapist interacts with a patient, collecting information, generating and testing hypotheses, and determining optimal diagnosis and treatment based on the information obtained.” (thanks to https://www.physio-pedia.com/Clinical_Reasoning#cite_note-Higgs-1). The model or lens through which we do these processes naturally has a major influence on our relationship with the person, the information we think is relevant, the hypotheses we develop, and ultimately the problems we identify and how we treat them. No arguments so far, yes? So when we come to t...

man T Abstract BACKGROUND: It has been speculated that there is an association between pain area and psychological factors in chronic musculoskeletal pain conditions; however, this relation is not well established. PURPOSE: To investigate the association between pain distribution and psychological factors in chronic musculoskeletal pain conditions. STUDY DESIGN: Systematic review. METHODS: We searched the following databases using optimized search strategies: MEDLINE, PsycINFO, Scopus, Web of Science and Cochrane. Studies were included if they investigated the relation between pain area using a pain...
