Effect of the Triceps Brachii Facilitation Technique on Scapulohumeral Muscle Activation during Reach and Point in a Healthy Population.
Abstract Purpose: Neurodevelopmental techniques are commonly used in upper limb rehabilitation, but little evidence supports the facilitation techniques associated with this concept. This exploratory study determined whether a facilitation technique at the triceps muscle affected scapulothoracic muscle activity during reach in healthy participants compared with self-selected posture and reach. The secondary aim was to determine whether muscle activation levels differed between the facilitation technique and the optimized posture or guided movement. We also hypothesized that activity in the scapular stabilizers (lo...

Understanding Physiotherapists' Intention to Counsel Clients with Chronic Pain on Exercise: A Focus on Psychosocial Factors.
Abstract Purpose: Twenty percent of Canadians experience chronic pain. Exercise is an effective management strategy, yet participation levels are low. Physiotherapists can be key to counselling clients to engage in long-term unsupervised exercise. Yet, investigations that identify psychosocial factors related to physiotherapists' intention to counsel are lacking. The purpose of this study was to examine whether physiotherapists' knowledge of chronic pain, beliefs about pain, and self-efficacy to counsel on exercise predicted their intention to counsel clients with chronic pain on exercise. Method: Practicing physi...

Reliability, Validity, and Responsiveness of the Mini-Balance Evaluation Systems Test in Ambulatory Individuals with Multiple Sclerosis.
Conclusions: The MBT is reliable and valid in pwMS. MDC values will facilitate assessing the effectiveness of treatment. Because ceiling effects were found for two subscales, but not the total MBT, it is recommended that clinicians administer the MBT in its entirety.

Perspectives of Racialized Physiotherapists in Canada on Their Experiences with Racism in the Physiotherapy Profession.
Conclusions: Participants described interpersonal racism often mediated by location and accent and experiences of internalized racism causing self-doubt, but they most commonly detailed institutionalized racism. PT was experienced as being infused with Whiteness, which participants typically responded to by downplaying or ignoring. The findings from this study can be used to stimulate conversations in the Canadian PT community, especially among those in leadership positions, about not only acknowledging racism as an issue but also taking action against it with further research, advocacy, and training.

Evidence-Based Practice: Physiotherapy for Children and Adolescents with Motor Symptoms of Conversion Disorder.
Abstract Clinical Case: A boy aged 14 years with conversion disorder who presented with an ataxic gait pattern experienced complete symptom resolution after engaging in physiotherapy (PT) as part of interdisciplinary treatment. Clinical Question: Is there evidence to support the use of PT in children and adolescents with motor symptoms of conversion disorder? Evidence: All the extant paediatric literature consists of case studies and case series. Some exciting research has been published in the adult literature that suggests the potential positive benefits of PT. Limitation of the Evidence and Future Research: The...

Inter-Instrument Reliability and Agreement of Fitbit Charge Measurements of Heart Rate and Activity at Rest, during the Modified Canadian Aerobic Fitness Test, and in Recovery.
Conclusions: The Charge HR heart rate variable demonstrated excellent inter-instrument reliability compared with the ZB and provided good levels of agreement. The steps taken and energy expenditure variables displayed excellent reliability measures between Charge HR and Fitbit One. Our findings may be used to capture field-based wireless measures of heart rate in various phases and provide information about possibly using the Charge HR and ZB devices interchangeably.

Mapping Physiotherapy Use in Canada in Relation to Physiotherapist Distribution.
Abstract Purpose: In this cross-sectional study, we examined the distribution of physiotherapists at the health region level across Canada in relation to self-reported physiotherapy use across the provinces and territories. Method: We drew on two data sources: the physiotherapy use question from the 2014 Canadian Community Health Survey and physiotherapists' primary employment information, obtained from the Canadian Institute of Health Information's 2015 Physiotherapist Database. We then applied geospatial mapping and Pearson's correlation analysis to the resulting variables. Results: Physiotherapy use is moderate...

Investigating the Test-Retest Reliability and Validity of Hand-Held Dynamometry for Measuring Knee Strength in Older Women with Knee Osteoarthritis.
Conclusions: HHD is a reliable tool for capturing knee extension and flexion in individuals with OA. Because of lower agreement, HHD might be best suited for evaluating within-subject strength changes rather than true strength scores. However, gold-standard extension strength magnitudes may reasonably be predicted from regression equations (r 2 = 0.82). PMID: 31719719 [PubMed] (Source: Physiotherapy Canada)
