Physiotherapist advice to older inpatients about the importance of staying physically active during hospitalisation reduces sedentary time, increases daily steps and preserves mobility: a randomised trial

ConclusionIn older inpatients, the addition of advice from a physiotherapist about maintaining activity during hospitalisation increases the level of physical activity and prevents loss of mobility.RegistrationClinicalTrials.gov NCT03297567.

This study examines the influence of changes in pelvic tilt and hip adduction on the range of motion (ROM) of the hip. METHODS: Ten FAI hips were used to simulate impingement at two positions: (1) 20° internal rotation (IR) with 100° flexion and 10° adduction and (2) 40° IR with 35° flexion and 10° adduction; the amount of IR was measured at the point of bony impingement or to the defined limit. Each simulation was performed at neutral and 5° and 10° anterior and posterior pelvic tilt. Then, the hip was placed in 10° of abduction, and all simulations were repeated. RESULTS: With ...

Conclusion: Emerging evidence of weak to moderate quality suggest that direct access physiotherapy could provide better outcomes in terms of disability, quality of life, and healthcare costs compared to primary physician-led medical care for patients with musculoskeletal disorders but not for pain outcomes. These conclusions could be modified when higher quality trials are published. Clinical relevance: Direct access physiotherapy for patients with musculoskeletal disorders appears as a promising model to improve efficiency of care and reduce health care costs, but more methodologically sound studies are required to formal...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the additional effects of neuromuscular training in a conservative treatment of trunk-, hip-, and knee-muscle strengthening on pain, function, and kinematics of the trunk, pelvis, and lower limb in women with PFP.MethodsThis is a randomised clinical trial, controlled, blinded. Ninety women who are active and engage in physical activity up to twice a week will be recruited. All participants will undergo an individual physiotherapy assessment and then will be allocated randomly into two groups. Thereafter, both groups will undergo a 12-week intervention protocol: group 1 will perfo...

Authors: Yildiz U, Schleicher P, Castein J, Kandziora F Abstract The basis for assessing thoracolumbar vertebral body fractures are two established classification systems. Important, especially in terms of further treatment, is the distinction between osteoporotic and healthy bones. The AO Spine classification offers a comprehensive tool for healthy bones to reliably specify the morphological criterias (alignment, integrity of the intervertebral disc, fragment separation, stenosis of the spinal canal). In addition to the fracture morphology, the OF classification for osteoporotic fractures includes patient-specific...

Abstract Exploring exercise preferences may help people to adhere to exercise programs by promoting customized programs to suit the person's choices and concerns. We investigated if the Stroke Exercise Preference Inventory, a questionnaire designed to explore stroke survivors' preferences for exercise and potential barriers, was feasible to use, and whether it assisted physiotherapists to design ongoing exercise programs in a mixed diagnostic convenience sample attending community rehabilitation. Physiotherapy staff interviewed 42 participants, and sought feedback about the questionnaire. Participant responses for...

Conclusion: The results indicate that the SAM accurately measures step count in individuals with vestibular disorders. Researchers and vestibular therapists can use the SAM to collect step count data in individuals with vestibular disorders. PMID: 31599185 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

árez MD, García-Saldivia MA Abstract Patients suffering from cardiovascular disease require comprehensive medical attention that involves therapies and procedures necessary to reintegrate them optimally to their personal, family, work and social life. Interventions aimed at achieving these goals are included in cardiac rehabilitation programs. These programs are designed to limit the harmful physiological and psychological effects of heart disease, reduce the risk of sudden death or reinfarction, control cardiovascular symptoms, stabilize or reverse the atherosclerosis process and improve the psychos...

CONCLUSIONS: FND specialty clinics have an important role in ensuring correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Most patients with motor FND require specialized neurophysiotherapy. Patients readily accepted an integrated neuropsychiatric approach. Close collaboration between FND clinics and acute neurology facilities might improve early detection of FND and could improve outcomes. PMID: 31587627 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
