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.

ConclusionsThree out of every four published low back pain systematic reviews had critically low methodological quality. Journals with higher impact factor were associated with journals endorsing the PRISMA recommendations. Clinicians must know how to critically appraise reviews. Journals ’ editorial policies should include the assessment of study methodological quality and reporting in the review process of an article.Graphic abstractThese slides can be retrieved under Electronic Supplementary Material.

Conclusion: According to the findings, by applying the extracted categories, it is possible to provide quality care based on the patient's individual needs. This can help speed up the treatment and shorten the length of hospitalization significantly. PMID: 31686885 [PubMed]

This study assessed the effect of experimental subacromial pain on contralateral shoulder external rotation (ER) force and activation. We hypothesized that subacromial pain would not affect contralateral shoulder external rotation force and voluntary activation (VA) of the contralateral infraspinatus because we believe that the effects of acute experimental pain will largely exert an ipsilateral, spinal segmental effect. Twenty healthy adults were tested. External rotation force and VA were tested while participants performed maximum voluntary isometric contractions of shoulder external rotation, during which a brief elect...

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...

In this study, 97 patients (women: n=22, men: n=75, mean age: 43.1±10.1 years) with a primary extrinsic shoulder impingement syndrome were included. Patients were divided into blue and white collar workers. Further on the subgroups of conservative and operative therapy were considered. Either a sole conservative therapy or an operative therapy with physiotherapeutic follow-up treatment took place. The conservative therapy was carried out as a structured re-coordination of muscles of the shoulder girdle under supervision of a physiotherapist. In the surgical cohorts an arthroscopic subacromial decompression was perfo...

Conclusions: There is preliminary evidence from individual studies which indicates that people with MS can improve their lower limb flexibility following participation in physical exercise programs, but the meta-analysis did not confirm these findings. PMID: 31684026 [PubMed - in process]
