Conclusion: The findings highlight how communication and interaction underpin the clinical reasoning process for using education with people who have CLBP. Participating physiotherapists explored and made sense of a person's world before tailoring their educational approach for the individual. Physiotherapists can use this paper to reflect on their practice to inform their own clinical reasoning. PMID: 32431203 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions/Implications for Practice The findings support the theory that RDs have a negative impact on perceived stress and fatigue in women. Physical function, bodily pain, and general health may be the most significantly affected domains of perceived physical health in women with RDs. Of note, with the exception of the vitality subscale, RDs did not adversely affect the perceived mental health of participants with RD in this study. Healthcare professionals should cooperate with clinical rheumatologists, psychologists, and physiotherapists to provide comprehensive care that includes long-term education to help patient...

Conclusions: Osteoarthritis is an inflammatory, age-related, chronic and progressive degenerative joint disease. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), together with clinical symptoms, play significant roles in TMJOA diagnosis. Current MRI techniques seem to be clinically useful for assessment of bony changes in temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Treatment of TMJOA requires a complex, interdisciplinary approach. TMJOA treatment includes the cooperation of physiotherapists, rheumatologists, gnathologists, orthodontists and quite often also maxillofacial surgeons and prosthodontists....

The adductor insertion avulsion syndrome, also called “thigh splints,” is usually considered a sports injury, causing thigh and groin pain. It is related to chronic traction stress of the adductor muscles at their insertion site along the posterior margin of the proximal and mid-femoral diaphysis, and it can get complicated by stress fracture. We r eport the case of a 64-year-old woman—significantly older than previously reported cases—with a history of complete functional loss of the right hip following intensive physiotherapy and a final diagnosis of adductor insertion avulsion syndrome. Published...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare the effects of Kinesio Taping and compression stockings on pain, edema, functional capacity and quality of life in patients with chronic venous disease (CVD). DESIGN: This is a prospective, randomized, controlled, single-blind clinical trial. SETTING: The study was conducted in a physiotherapy and rehabilitation unit of a university hospital. SUBJECTS: A total of 62 patients with early-stage CVD were allocated to either an experimental group or a control group. INTERVENTIONS: Experimental group (n = 29) received Kinesio Tapi...

What we call a disease matters. It matters to the person because a diagnosis is a marker: this problem is known, it’s recognised, it’s real (Mengshoel, Sim, Ahlsen &Madden, 2017). It matters to the clinician, particularly medical practitioners, but also those clinicians working within a largely “disease-oriented” framework (for example, physiotherapists, osteopaths) (Haskins, Osmotherly, Rivett, 2015; Kennedy, 2017). It matters also to insurance companies, or funding providers – who is in, and who is out. The diagnostic label itself hides a great many assumptions. The ways in which diag...

Chronic neck and upper back pain occurs in 40%–60% of patients that suffer whiplash injury. Increasing evidence points to a dysfunction of the cervical and thoracic muscles as the predominant cause of persistent pain in this cohort. Response to standard management including physiotherapy, psychotherapy, medications, and acupuncture are often inadequate. As a result, there is significant functional impairment leading to excessive health care costs. The authors present a novel treatment, intermediate cervical plexus block with depot steroids, in 3 patients presenting with refractory chronic neck and upper back pain fro...
