Abstract INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: Back pain affects specific occupational groups, among which healthcare workers are the most predisposed. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the interdependences between subjective disability and their correlation with pain intensity and quality of life assessment among professionally active medical workers, taking into account working, socio-demographic and health conditions. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The cross-sectional study enrolled 110 professionally active medical workers (nurses, midwives, paramedics and physiotherapists). The study was conducted by a diag...

CONCLUSIONS: This review identified a poor overlap between the PROMIS framework and outcome domains used to define the effectiveness of physical therapy in adults with CLBP. This finding suggests that other potential benefits resulting from physical therapy modalities are not being measured. Furthermore, a large diversity in the outcome domains and instruments was found.

Conclusion. Our findings support that the electronic version of the RMDQ, TSK, CES-D, and BPAQ can be administered in clinical and research settings for assessment of patients with chronic LBP. Nevertheless, electronic version of the NRS for assessment of pain intensity should not be used interchangeably in clinical practice in patients with chronic LBP. Level of Evidence: 3

CONCLUSION: Clinicians perceived a need to communicate the complexity of non-specific low back pain in order to help patients make sense of their condition, rather than applying alternative labelling. There are multiple barriers to integrating a socially constructed framework that need to be overcome. PMID: 32095836 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study involved 87 patients who attended a private physiotherapy practice following a road traffic collision after referral by their solicitor as part of a personal injury claim. Patients were included if they had been diagnosed with WAD (grades I-III) and received acupuncture as part of their treatment. An average of three sessions of acupuncture were received, which primarily involved needling of traditional acupuncture points and/or myofascial trigger points of the neck and upper/lower back. RESULTS: Pain significantly reduced (p

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...

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.
