"A manageable and challenging fall prevention intervention with impact on society" - older women's perspectives on participation in the stayBalanced training programme
CONCLUSIONS: The StayBalanced Programme was appreciated and acceptable from the perspective of the participants, and in line with their values and preferences, one of three key components of EPB. The results of this study may support the uptake of the evidence-based StayBalanced Programme for fall prevention in clinical practice.PMID:34550046 | DOI:10.1080/09593985.2021.1972498 (Source: Physiotherapy Theory and Practice)

Effects of sensory cues on dynamic trunk control in children with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy
Conclusion:This study provides evidence that combined visual and verbal cues are more effective at enhancing dynamic trunk control than either visual or verbal cues alone in TD children and children with SDCP.PMID:34424142 | DOI:10.1080/09593985.2021.1967541 (Source: Physiotherapy Theory and Practice)

Rehabilitation of a patient with bilateral rectus abdominis full thickness tear sustained in recreational strength training: a case report
This report aims to describe a case of an acute bilateral full-thickness rectus abdominis tear simulating an acute abdomen that presented to an emergency department.CASE DESCRIPTION: A 25-year-old male (169 cm, 84 kg) was transferred to the emergency room due to severe lancinating (Numerical Pain Rating 10/10) abdominal pain that occurred during weight training at a gym. An orthopedic surgeon, an internist, and a general surgeon assessed him for internal and surgical emergencies. The magnetic resonance imaging of his abdomen revealed a bilateral full-thickness tear of the rectus abdominis muscle. The patient was given an o...

Effect of robotic-assisted ankle training on gait in stroke participants: A case series study

Test-retest reliability of the L-Test in patients with advanced knee osteoarthritis
Conclusions: The L-test is a reliable outcome measurement for the assessment of walking ability in patients with advanced knee OA, and it showed very high test-retest reliability in these patients. This test may assist clinicians and researchers in assessing the functional mobility of patients and planning rehabilitation in patients with advanced knee OA.PMID:34410898 | DOI:10.1080/09593985.2021.1967539 (Source: Physiotherapy Theory and Practice)
