Respiratory muscle strength, exercise capacity, resting oxygen consumption and resting energy consumption relationship with disability level caused by low back pain

Conclusion: Our results indicate that increase in disability level caused by LBP may lead to decrease in respiratory muscle strength and exercise capacity. So evaluating and training the respiratory muscle strength and exercise capacity is essential for this population and also may crucial for respiratory diseases who complains LBP.

Abstract The prolonged disability associated with musculoskeletal (MSK) pain represents an enormous health burden, for individuals as well as society. Promoting pain and disability management for patients with persistent MSK-related conditions can be very challenging for rehabilitation professionals. These often-complex conditions require the adoption of a biopsychosocial perspective in order to assess and address a vast array of potential factors affecting the patient. Fortunately, a self-management (SM) approach has been deemed effective in enhancing patients' control over their symptoms and disabilities. Howeve...

Conclusions: Personal conflicts were identified between clinicians' descriptions of their wishes to "sell" their own perspectives to patients while simultaneously wanting to demonstrate a patient-focused approach and avoid the interpersonal conflicts which arose from clashes with patients' beliefs. Building a good initial rapport, showing empathy and adapting approaches in response to perceptions of patients' reactions were perceived as strategies to help mitigate the risks of failed communication, but this was something for which participants felt unprepared by their prior training.

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...

ConclusionThere was no additional benefit of an internet-delivered CBT program (MoodGYM) to physical treatments in those with chronic non-specific LBP at medium risk of ongoing disability measured at post-treatment, or at 6 and 12  months.Trial registrationThis trial was prospectively registered with Australian New Zealand Clinical Trials Registry Number (ACTRN)12615000269538.

CONCLUSION: CFT reduced disability, but not pain, at 6 and 12 months compared with the group-based exercise and education intervention. Future research should examine whether the greater reduction in disability achieved by CFT renders worthwhile differences for health systems and patients.

Once you begin to dip your toes into psychological therapies, it doesn’t take long before you begin to see TLAs all over the place. So today I’m going to post on two things: some of the TLAs, and why or how we might consider using these approaches in pain rehabilitation. The first one is CBT, or cognitive behavioural therapy. CBT grew out of two movements: behaviour therapy (Skinner and the pigeons, rats and all that behaviour modification stuff), and cognitive therapy (Ellis and Beck and the “cognitive triad” – more on this later). When the two approaches to therapy are combined, we have c...

Authors: Sheng Y, Duan Z, Qu Q, Chen W, Yu B Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect comparison of kinesio taping on chronic non-specific low back pain with that of other general physical therapies. METHODS: Relevant studies published up to 31 July 2018 were searched in electronic databases (PubMed, Web of Science, Science Direct, Physiotherapy Evidence Database (PEDro), Cochrane Library, Wanfang Data, Vip Data and China National Knowledge Infrastructure). The quality of included studies was assessed using a risk of bias assessment tool, as recommended by the Cochrane Collaboration. Data from visual analogue...
