A comparison of balance and fall risk in patients with unilateral and bilateral total knee arthroplasty
J Back Musculoskelet Rehabil. 2021 Dec 31. doi: 10.3233/BMR-210127. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Static or dynamic postural control cannot be fully restored in patients with knee osteoarthritis, even after total knee arthroplasty (TKA), which may contribute to an increased risk of falls in the elderly.OBJECTIVE: To evaluate balance and the fall risk before and after TKA in patients with bilateral knee osteoarthritis. Secondary outcomes were patient-reported and performance-based activity limitations.METHODS: A total of 45 patients were separated into two groups as unilateral TKA (UTKA, n= 24) and bilateral TKA...

GIRD syndrome in male handball and volleyball players: Is the decrease of total range of motion the turning point to pathology?
CONCLUSION: GIRD is a common phenomenon in handball and volleyball players. Offensive players are frequently suffering from postero-superior impingement. GIRD> 10∘ leads in nearly 75% of the athletes to a decrease of total range of motion and a high rate of postero-superior impingement. Thus, a decreased range of motion seems to be the turning point from adaptation to pathology. Therefore, regular controls of range of motion and countermeasures by means of stretching the posterior shoulder joint should be integrated in the training content.PMID:34957983 | DOI:10.3233/BMR-191767 (Source: Journal of Back and Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation)
