IJERPH, Vol. 17, Pages 1191: Inflammatory Markers in Dysmenorrhea and Therapeutic Options International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health doi: 10.3390/ijerph17041191 Authors: Zofia Barcikowska Elżbieta Rajkowska-Labon Magdalena Emilia Grzybowska Rita Hansdorfer-Korzon Katarzyna Zorena Dysmenorrhea often significantly reduces the quality of women’s life and is still an important public health problem. Despite numerous studies, the pathomechanism of dysmenorrhea is not fully understood. Previous research indicates the complexity of biochemical reactions between the endocrine, vascular, and immune systems. Prostaglandins play a major role in the pathomechanism of dysmenorrhea. In contrast, cytokines and other proinflammatory factors in primary dysmenorrhea are less studied. In addition to the applied pharmacotherapy, more and more studies proving the effectiveness of non-pharmacological methods appear. Therefore, the present work contains a review of the latest research concerning factors involved in dysmenorrhea, as well as therapeutic options. In the literature search, authors used online databases, PubMed, and clinitrials.gov and browsed through individual gynecology, physiotherapy journals and books.

Conclusion Visual estimation had excellent intra-rater reliability in the assessment of neck active rotation and head tilt on infants with congenital muscular torticollis. Visual estimation had acceptable inter-rater reliability in the assessment of neck active rotation but not of head tilt. There was a wide variation in reliability with no correlation between reliability and clinical experience. Assessment tools for head tilt that are more psychometrically robust should be developed.What is Known:• A thorough assessment of infants presenting with torticollis is essential, using assessment tools with robust psychometr...

Conclusion: It appears that the knee OA pain and disability can be decreased after a dual-frequency LLLT applied to acupoints (SP9, SP10, and EX-LE2). The clinical efficacy of LLLT is highly related to the therapeutic settings of the laser apparatus; hence, more clinical trials with diffident parameter settings are needed to be further clarified.

Conclusion. Approximately one in three patients with LSS experience a poor clinical outcome consistent with surgical non-response. Demographic, health, and clinical factors were more predictive of clinical outcome than surgery-related factors. These predictors may assist surgeons with patient selection and inform shared decision-making for patients with symptomatic LSS. Level of Evidence: 2

CONCLUSION: DN is effective in improving hamstring flexibility compared with SS. One session of DN can be an effective treatment for hamstring tightness and increase hamstring flexibility. The improvements suggest that DN is a novel treatment for hamstring flexibility. PMID: 33027765 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsThe results suggest an overall positive response to EMR implementation. Minimal staff reported effects such as stress or anxiety in the workplace related to EMR implementation, and a perception of 'comfort' was cited once EMR was part of usual practice. However, responders did not report a significant effect on speed, efficiency or quality of patient care following EMR implementation.What is known about the topic?A growing body of literature exists regarding the perceptions of staff (particularly medical officers) in moving towards EMRs, but there is limited evidence regarding the perceptions of AHPs, and the ba...

ConclusionsService provision, support and pessary training in the UK vary greatly. This calls for the standardisation of care, training and development of a national guideline. We present a clear rationale and need for a UK guideline on pessary management of vaginal prolapse and a standardised pessary training model for multi-professional use.

Conclusion: Our findings show how the women explain their recovery in terms of overcoming fear of movement, making sense of their symptoms and becoming more active in everyday life. The close analysis reveals a recovery narrative portraying a complex and ambiguous process consisting of small dramas about the efforts trying to rebuild a meaningful life.
