Nonoperative Management of Labral Tears of the Hip in Adolescent Athletes: Description of Sports Participation, Interventions, Comorbidity, and Outcomes

Context: Hip injury among young athletes is increasing, especially hip labral tears. Some tears may require surgical intervention, especially if they are associated with boney pathology such as femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). A protocol for nonoperative treatment of the hip labral tears is not well established. Objective: To identify current nonoperative treatment options, comorbidities, sports participation, and outcomes of adolescent athletes who were diagnosed with hip labral tears. Study Design: Retrospective chart review. Setting: A regional tertiary level medical and academic institution. Participants: Physically active 8- to 20-year-old males and females who were diagnosed with hip labral tears in 2010 to 2013. Main Outcome Measures: Nonoperative treatment interventions including physical therapy (PT), intraarticular injection (IAI), the type of sports participation, and comorbidity were extracted. Statistical Analysis: Descriptive statistics and χ2 tests were used with a priori alpha level

I don't know what to do. Since entering my DPT programs, I have been struggling academically. So far I have flunked my first pathophysiology exam and just feel lost in NeuroAnatomy. My school does not have tutoring services available and my efforts to find one have not panned out. So far, I've been trying to make do with Youtube videos for neuroanatomy but it is taking up so much of my study time that it is inefficient. My school doesn't have resources to help me and I feel isolated and... 1st Year DPT Student - Failing

Publication date: 2019Source: International Review of Neurobiology, Volume 147Author(s): Margaret K.Y. Mak, Irene S.K. Wong-YuAbstractParkinson's disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disease with a prevalence rate of 1–2 per 1000 of the population worldwide. Pharmacological management is the mainstay of treatment. Despite optimal medication, motor impairment particularly balance and gait impairment persist leading to various degree of disability and reduced quality-of-life. The present review describes motor impairment including postural impairment, gait dysfunction, reduced muscle strength and aerobic...

Conclusions: AP is a common finding in OI patients (54%). Among hips of OI patients that met criteria for AP in early radiographs, 42% (20/48) demonstrated greater CE angles in their latest radiographs. Similar changes were observed in OI patients who did not initially meet criteria for diagnosis for AP. However, CE angle measurements between the 2 groups did not significantly differ (P=0.71). In terms of Kohler line crossing, patients that met criteria for AP in early radiographs had significantly greater change per year than those that did not have AP criteria (P

Conclusions: Adolescents and their parents felt that successful treatment of an acute patella dislocation was equivalent to perfect health (utility=1); however, adolescents assigned a significantly higher utility to a stable but lower functioning health state compared with their parents. Baseline functional status is an important modifier of health state preference—highly active adolescents assign a significantly greater disutility to health states in which they are not participating in sports at their regular level of play. These findings provide insight into the health-related quality of life impact for acute pat...

Authors: Jellad A, May W, Zrig A, Kalai A, Jguirim M, Frih ZBS, Golli M Abstract BACKGROUND: Intra-articular distension is a validated treatment in adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder and is commonly followed by intensive in-patient physical therapy. A recent meta-analysis found that physical therapy is as effective as intra-articular distension (IAD) and that an early distension could be the primary choice for treating frozen shoulder. The question of the additional contribution of physical therapy prior to IAD compared with IAD followed by physical therapy has not been raised. OBJECTIVES: We compared IAD prec...

This study included 16 patients with a history of MS and spasticity in the adductor hip muscles according to the Modified Ashworth Scale (MAS). The participants were randomized into the active group (n=10) and control group (n=6), in which active rTMS and sham rTMS were applied in 10 sessions, respectively. A physical therapy and rehabilitation program was applied along with rTMS sessions in both groups. The evaluation parameters were assessed at baseline and then 1 week and 1 month after applying rTMS. RESULTS: Statistical analyses with post-hoc correction revealed statistically significant improvements in the active ...
