Systematic reviews and meta-analyses are important studies that can help avoid research waste by synthesising existing evidence, from randomised controlled trials for example, before embarking on new and expensive studies . However many systematic reviews fail to identify sufficient high quality studies to include and therefore effectiveness of an intervention cannot be established. These are often conducted in areas where a condition is prevalent. Systematic reviews with and without meta-analyses are published in most issues of Physiotherapy (e.g.
Conclusion: The results of the study showed that acute stroke patients with a good emotional state had better functional outcomes. It can be concluded that evaluating the emotional state and existing problems while planning of rehabilitation programs will make a positive contribution to both the functional and emotional states of acute stroke patients.
DiscussionPersons with shoulder complaints and high occupational shoulder exposures are an obvious target group for secondary prevention efforts. We developed the Shoulder-Caf é to reduce shoulder complaints and shoulder exposures while unifying the expertise that is needed to evaluate and treat shoulder complaints. If the intervention is effective, it would warrant widespread implementation.Trial registrationClinicaltrials.gov, ID:NCT03159910. Registered on 18 May 2017
ConclusionsAdherence was problematic. Benefits at 4 months did not persist and at 12 months, we found no significant differences between treatments. There is inadequate evidence a short physiotherapy intervention of either manual therapy or home exercise provides long-term benefits, but arguably short-term benefits are valuable.Trial registrationISRCTN 49117867.

Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) is a chronic, multifactorial syndrome with complex symptoms of orthostatic intolerance. Breathlessness is a prevalent symptom, however little is known about the aetiology. Anecdotal evidence suggests that breathless POTS patients commonly demonstrate dysfunctional breathing/hyperventilation syndrome (DB/HVS). There are, however, no published data regarding DB/HVS in POTS, and whether physiotherapy/breathing retraining may improve patients' breathing pattern and symptoms.
