Understanding exercise promotion in rheumatic diseases: A qualitative study among physical therapists.

Conclusion: Physical therapists in rheumatology understand exercise promotion in various ways that differ with respect to comprehensiveness and patient-centeredness. The physical therapists' use of behavior change techniques serves different purposes in exercise promotion, varying from external control to self-management. The present results might thus be used to develop awareness, knowledge, and skills for more deliberate exercise promotion among physical therapists working with patients having rheumatic diseases.

Abstract Given the limitations of current inventories of basic psychological need measurement, and the importance of psychological need support within an injury rehabilitation context, there is an evident need to develop the present inventory. Utilizing Self-Determination Theory (SDT) as a theoretical framework, two studies were conducted to develop and psychometrically test a measure of patients' perceptions of basic psychological needs support in physical therapy: The Basic Psychological Needs Support in Physical Therapy Questionnaire (BPNS-PT). In study 1, a panel of Self-Determination Theory academics assessed...

ConclusionsOur findings question the construct validity of the PEDro scale to assess the methodological quality of clinical trials. PEDro summary scores should not be used; rather the physiotherapy community should consider working with the individual items of the scale.

CONCLUSIONS: Evidence for the use of exercise therapy as an intervention for SSP is increasing and strengthening. Ongoing research is required to provide guidance on exercise type, dose, duration and expected outcomes. A strong recommendation may be made regarding the inclusion of manual therapy in the initial treatment phase. J Orthop Sports Phys Ther, Epub 15 Nov 2019. doi:10.2519/jospt.2020.8498.

ConclusionThe results of the present metanalysis support a paradigm shift in arthrogenous TMJ disorder treatment. There is a new evidence (though on a very low to moderate quality level) that minimally invasive procedures, particularly in combination with IAI of adjuvant pharmacological agents (PRP, HA or CS), are significantly more effective than conservative treatments for both pain reduction and improvement of MMO in both short (≤5 months) and intermediate term (6 months to 4 years) periods. In contrast to traditional concepts mandating exhaustion of conservative treatment options, minimally invasive procedures, ther...

Discussion: This case report describes the use of MSK US imaging as part of the clinical decision-making process when treating a patient with cervicogenic headaches. This case illustrates the successful management using manual therapy to restore position, mobility, decrease muscle tone, and normalize upright posture. Complementary research is necessary to further validate MSK US imaging as the preferred method to objectivize joint mobility and guide decision-making. Additionally, the cause-effect relationship between the treatment and positive outcomes in this case report has to be further validated. PMID: 31686564 [P...

CONCLUSION: Measuring task-specific sensitivity is predictive of pain intensity after 3 months in patients with LBP. The prognostic value appears limited in respect to disability.

Resumo O Problema Cr ônico de Coluna (PCC) é uma das doenças mais prevalentes no mundo e representa uma das principais causas de anos de vida perdidos por incapacidade. Embora de grande relevância para a saúde pública, estudos sobre o acesso e a utilização dos tipos de tratamento são escassos. O objetivo deste artigo é descrever os principais tratamentos para PCC no Brasil, analisar os fatores associados à sua utilização e discutir possíveis desigualdades na utilização de fisioterapia /exercícios e a utiliza...
