What we call a disease matters. It matters to the person because a diagnosis is a marker: this problem is known, it’s recognised, it’s real (Mengshoel, Sim, Ahlsen &Madden, 2017). It matters to the clinician, particularly medical practitioners, but also those clinicians working within a largely “disease-oriented” framework (for example, physiotherapists, osteopaths) (Haskins, Osmotherly, Rivett, 2015; Kennedy, 2017). It matters also to insurance companies, or funding providers – who is in, and who is out. The diagnostic label itself hides a great many assumptions. The ways in which diag...

Background: Over the next 30 years chronic health problems associated with pelvic floor dysfunction are projected to increase by 50%. Objective: To determine the efficacy of a noninvasive, pain-free procedure of behavioral modifications and a specialized exercise program to improve pain levels and quality of life. Study Design: A quantitative, longitudinal study was conducted. Methods: Forty-one women aged 43.2 ± 9.5 years (mean ± SD) with symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction and pelvic organ prolapse were introduced to a protocol that included eight 45-minute live group sessions and a home exercis...

CONCLUSIONS: This review identified a poor overlap between the PROMIS framework and outcome domains used to define the effectiveness of physical therapy in adults with CLBP. This finding suggests that other potential benefits resulting from physical therapy modalities are not being measured. Furthermore, a large diversity in the outcome domains and instruments was found.

AbstractLow back pain (LBP) is prevalent and may transition into chronic LBP (cLBP) with associated reduced quality of life, pain, and disability. Because cLBP affects a heterogenous population, rehabilitation efforts must be individualized to meet the needs of various patient populations as well as individuals. This narrative review evaluated the many approaches to LBP rehabilitation including treatment-based classifications and specific types of rehabilitation efforts from exercise and physical therapy to spinal manipulation and bracing. Clinicians caring for patients with LBP or cLBP must be aware of the various options...

ConclusionThis study showed that manual therapy with pain specific education is an effective tool to improve QoL in patients with CLBP by reducing pain in the short term. Therefore, combining manual therapy with neuroscience pain education can be a promising option to increase QoL in patients with CLBP.

Study Design. This is an observational cohort study. Objective. The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of PT to an interdisciplinary treatment approach in patients with chronic low back pain (CLBP). Summary of Background Data. CLBP is a costly and potentially disabling condition. Physical therapy (PT), cognitive behavioral therapy, and interdisciplinary pain programs (IPPs) are superior to usual care. Empirical evidence is lacking to clearly support one treatment approach over another in patients with CLBP. Methods. One hundred seventeen adult patients who completed an IPP for individuals with &g...
