RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Manipulation under anaesthesia and arthroscopic capsular release are costly and invasive treatments for frozen shoulder, but their effectiveness remains uncertain. We compared these two surgical interventions with early structured physiotherapy plus steroid injection. METHODS: In this multicentre, pragmatic, three-arm, superiority randomised trial, patients referred to secondary care for treatment of primary frozen shoulder were recruited from 35 hospital sites in the UK. Participants were adults (≥18 years) with unilateral frozen shoulder, characterised by restriction of passive external rotation (≥50%) in the affected shoulder. Participants were randomly assigned (2:2:1) to receive manipulation under anaesthesia, arthroscopic capsular release, or early structured physiotherapy. In manipulation under anaesthesia, the surgeon manipulated the affected shoulder to stretch and tear the tight capsule while the participant was under general anaesthesia, supplemented by a steroid injection. Arthroscopic capsular release, also done under general anaesthesia, involved surgically dividing the contracted anterior capsule in the rotator interval, followed by manipulation, with optional steroid injection. Both forms of surgery were followed by postprocedural physiotherapy. Early structured physiotherapy involved mobilisation techniques and a graduated home exercise programme supplemented by a steroid injection. Both early structured physiotherapy and postprocedural physiotherapy involved 12 sessions during up to 12 weeks. The primary outcome was the Oxford Shoulder Score (OSS; 0-48) at 12 months after randomisation, analysed by initial randomisation group. We sought a target difference of 5 OSS points between physiotherapy and either form of surgery, or 4 points between manipulation and capsular release. The trial registration is ISRCTN48804508. FINDINGS: Between April 1, 2015, and Dec 31, 2017, we screened 914 patients, of whom 503 (55%) were randomly assigned. At 12 months, OSS data were available for 189 (94%) of 201 participants assigned to manipulation (mean estimate 38·3 points, 95% CI 36·9 to 39·7), 191 (94%) of 203 participants assigned to capsular release (40·3 points, 38·9 to 41·7), and 93 (94%) of 99 participants assigned to physiotherapy (37·2 points, 35·3 to 39·2). The mean group differences were 2·01 points (0·10 to 3·91) between the capsular release and manipulation groups, 3·06 points (0·71 to 5·41) between capsular release and physiotherapy, and 1·05 points (-1·28 to 3·39) between manipulation and physiotherapy. Eight serious adverse events were reported with capsular release and two with manipulation. At a willingness-to-pay threshold of £20 000 per quality-adjusted life-year, manipulation under anaesthesia had the highest probability of being cost-effective (0·8632, compared with 0·1366 for physiotherapy and 0·0002 for capsular release). INTERPRETATION: All mean differences on the assessment of shoulder pain and function (OSS) at the primary endpoint of 12 months were less than the target differences. Therefore, none of the three interventions were clinically superior. Arthoscopic capsular release carried higher risks, and manipulation under anaesthesia was the most cost-effective. FUNDING: The National Institute for Health Research Health Technology Assessment programme.

RESUMO

Vibration exercise (VE) has been suggested for effective muscle training and conditioning. Surface electromyogram (EMG) is employed as a powerful tool for the analysis of VE. However, sharp peaks are observed in the EMG spectrum. The interpretation of these peaks is controversial, complicating the extraction of EMG parameters for VE analysis. The present study is therefore aiming at quantifying the relevance of these spectral peaks in EMG recording during VE. To this end, surface EMG was recorded on the biceps brachii during VE at different amplitudes and frequencies. The power percentage contained in the two narrow bands (±0.5 Hz) around the vibration frequency and its first harmonic (PPv) was calculated. The root mean square (RMS) value of the EMG was calculated with and without including the spectral peaks and then compared. The results show an average PPv value of 20.7 ± 7.9 % and a relative RMS difference (∆RMS) of 12.2 ± 3.8 %. In PPv and addition, RMS∆ seem to be influenced by vibration amplitude and frequency. Our results provide useful information for the analysis of VE and contribute to better understanding of the EMG spectral peaks.

RESUMO

Contingent learning is an agent for infants to explore the environment, which enhances the maturation of different developmental domains. This paper presents one of the first to investigate neural activities related to contingent learning of infants by analyzing their motor response that could elicit an audio-visual feedback. Three different kinds of motor response of infants were investigated, including unilateral kicks, synchronized kicks, and alternate kicks. Electroencephalographic (EEG) signals of infants were recorded before the motor experiments. Higher theta band power and lower upper beta power at the right temporal lobe of infants predicted a higher ratio of total unilateral kicks and a lower ratio of synchronized kicks at the later acquisition stage of the experiment. As contingent learning could be reflected by specific motor response in relation to the audio-visual stimuli, the results suggested that right temporal oscillations could predict different levels of contingent learning of infants.

RESUMO

Are There Recommended Alternatives to Positive Airway Pressure Therapy in the Treatment of Sleep Apnea? Abstract. For decades, positive airway pressure (PAP) ventilation has been considered the gold standard in the therapy of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Although this is a very successful procedure with regard to the elimination of apnea, the long-term adherence of patients to PAP is only 60-80 % for various reasons. In the meantime, there are numerous options such as intraoral devices, spine sleep position avoidance or newer surgical procedures which are advertised as an alternative to PAP in the therapy of OSA. This raises questions about the significance and effectiveness. This article is intended to provide an up-to-date overview of the significance and possibilities of the therapy alternatives.

RESUMO

AIMS: To assess the effectiveness of a variety of physical treatments in the management of tension-type headache (TTH) in children. METHODS: This review is reported in accordance with the PRISMA guidelines and was registered in the PROSPERO database (CRD42014015290). Randomized and nonrandomized controlled trials that examined the effects of all treatments with a physical component in the management of TTH in children and compared these treatments to a placebo intervention, no intervention, or a controlled comparison intervention were included. The Physiotherapy Evidence Database (PEDro) criteria for bias assessment and the Grades of Recommendation, Assessment, Development, and Evaluation (GRADE) Working Group criteria were used to assess the quality of the body of evidence. The outcome measures were pain, functioning, and quality of life. Only RCTs were included in the meta-analyses. RESULTS: An initial search produced 10,464 published articles. Of these, 17 were relevant trials, including 1,815 participants. The overall GRADE rating of the included studies was moderate, and 11 of the 17 studies could be used in the meta-analyses. The effectiveness of physical treatments in terms of a reduction of pain of 50% or more showed a risk ratio (RR) of 2.37 (95% CI: 1.69 to 3.33). Relaxation training was the most evaluated intervention and proved to be significantly effective (RR: 3.00 [95% CI: 1.94 to 4.63]). In children having TTH combined with temporomandibular disorders, occlusal appliances were effective (RR: 2.58 [95% CI: 1.37 to 4.85]). CONCLUSION: This review supports the use of physical treatments to reduce pain in children with TTH.

RESUMO

Pain assessment of CRPS in Hand Therapy Abstract. Pain massively controls everyday life of affected persons. In case of a nerve being damaged, pain becomes more complex, as the trophism of the affected skin area may significantly be altered in addition to loss of sensibility and / or motor function. Quantifying pain is, therefore, difficult. Nevertheless, there exists a broad variety of pain assessments in hand therapy. A comprehensive documentation of pain and its effects on the patients' life are therefore pivotal for the individual design of therapy. Guidelines recommend an early start of therapy, a multimodal approach and a mixture of drug and non-drug interventions. However, specific recommendations are difficult to make, as the course of therapy is often complex and varies from person to person. Therefore, open and transparent communication, a stable therapeutic relationship, professional knowledge and active involvement of those affected are a prerequisite for successful therapy. In this article, the most frequently used assessments for pain in hand therapy are presented, as they are applied, for example, in complex regional pain syndromes. The clinical examination of allodynia is described in more detail by means of a patient example. Potential therapy goals and contents are illustrated. Despite all launched therapy interventions, treatment of pain remains a challenge that is best approached in an interdisciplinary setting and with the support of those affected.

RESUMO

AIMS: The musician's hand represents a complex system, which requires important motor skills. Although several studies have already investigated rehabilitation outcomes and techniques in musicians after hand lesions, none have been addressed specifically to objectively quantifiable functional parameters. The purpose of our study was to study hand functionality in violinists in order to provide foundations on which to establish and develop more appropriate rehabilitation protocols. STUDY DESIGN: An observational cross-sectional cohort study consisting of 34 subjects, including 23 students and 11 professional violinists who were either studying or working at a conservatory. Results were compared to a data set of a non-musician control group. METHODS: Nine-hole peg test and hand test system (HTS) were used to perform the study. A hand-held dynamometer was used to measure hand grip and tripod pinch maximal isometric voluntary contraction of both hands. RESULTS: Hand strength did not significantly differ on either side between professional and student violinists. A significant difference was seen when comparing violinists as a whole versus the non-musician control group. HTS highlighted significant differences in dexterity. CONCLUSION: Violinists develop better overall motor performances of the left hand, and their performance is better than normal "non-musician" controls. Dexterity and precision of execution positively correlate to years of practice. We conclude that rehabilitation of a violinist's hand should be aimed at enhancing motor performance of the left hand and should be focused to maximize dexterity of both hands.

RESUMO

AIM: Exercise therapy is a key intervention in the management of knee osteoarthritis (OA). This study aimed to test the 6-month effectiveness of Wu Qin Xi Qigong (WQXQ) exercise versus a conventional physical therapy (control group [CG]) on physical functioning in patients with early knee OA. METHODS: This study was a 6-month follow-up from a randomized controlled trial. Participants with knee OA were randomly allocated to the WQXQ or CG. Data from the Berg Balance Scale, Timed Up and Go Test, 6-Minute Walk Test, 30-Second Chair Stand Test, the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index, knee extension strength and knee flexion strength were collected before and after the 6-month intervention. RESULTS: Both treatment groups demonstrated large (20%-50%) and clinically relevant reductions in activity limitations, pain and knee instability, which were sustained at 6 months post-treatment. No differences in effectiveness between experimental and control treatment were found on Timed Up and Go Test, 6-Minute Walk Test, knee extension strength and knee flexion strength except for a higher Berg Balance Scale score (P = 0.029) and lower Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index pain score (P = 0.031) in the WQXQ group. CONCLUSIONS: Both WQXQ and conventional physical therapy exercise programs were highly effective in reducing activity limitations and pain, and promoting balance and muscle power. WQXQ was found to be more effective in promoting balance and reducing pain than conventional physical therapy exercise in patients with knee OA. Geriatr Gerontol Int 2020; 20: 899-903.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Sponsorship bias could affect research results to inform decision makers when using the results of these trials. The extent to which sponsorship bias affect results in the field of physical therapy has been unexplored in the literature. Therefore, the main aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of sponsorship bias on the treatment effects of randomized controlled trials in physical therapy area. METHODS: This was a meta-epidemiological study. A random sample of randomized controlled trials included in meta-analyses of physical therapy area were identified. Data extraction including assessments of appropriate influence of funders was conducted independently by two reviewers. To determine the association between biases related to sponsorship biases and effect sizes, a two-level analysis was conducted using a meta-meta-analytic approach. RESULTS: We analyzed 393 trials included in 43 meta-analyses. The most common sources of sponsorship for this sample of physical therapy trials were government (n = 205, 52%), followed by academic (n = 44, 11%) and industry (n = 39, 10%). The funding was not declared in a high percentage of the trials (n = 85, 22%). The influence of the trial sponsor was assessed as being appropriate in 246 trials (63%) and considered inappropriate/unclear in 147 (37%) of them. We have moderate evidence to say that trials with inappropriate/unclear influence of funders tended to have on average a larger effect size than those with appropriate influence of funding (effect size = 0.15; 95% confidence interval = -0.03 to 0.33). CONCLUSIONS: Based on our sample of physical therapy trials, it seems that most of the trials are funded by either government and academia and a small percentage are funded by the industry. Treatment effect size estimates were on average 0.15 larger in trials with lack of appropriate influence of funders as compared with trials with appropriate influence of funding. Contrarily to other fields, industry funding was relatively small and their influence perhaps less marked. All these results could be explained by the relative youth of the field and/or the absence of clear industry interests. In front of the call for action by the World Health Organization to strengthen rehabilitation in health systems, these results raise the issue of the need of public funding in the field.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Oropharyngeal dysphagia is a common disorder after stroke. Physical therapy has been widely used in the rehabilitation of patients with dysphagia after stroke. Due to the lack of randomized trials directly comparing the efficacy of various physical therapies directly, the relative efficacy of these methods is difficult to determined. Therefore, we intend to conduct a network meta-analysis to evaluate the benefits of these physical therapies. METHODS: According to the retrieval strategies, randomized controlled trials (RCTs) on physical therapies for stroke patients with dysphagia will be obtained from CNKI, Wan Fang Data, PubMed, Web of science, Embase databases and Cochrane Library, regardless of publication date or language. Studies were screened based on inclusion and exclusion criteria, and the Cochrane risk bias assessment tool will be used to evaluate the quality of the literature. The network meta-analysis will be performed in Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) method and carried out with Stata14 and OpenBUGS14 software. Ultimately, the evidentiary grade for the results will be evaluated. RESULTS: This study will compare the efficacy of physical therapies in the treatment of stroke patients with dysphagia and suggests a reasonable clinical choice. CONCLUSION: Our findings will provide references for future guidance developing and clinical decision.

RESUMO

Background: The rapid outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), a public health emergency of grave concern, warranted hospital admissions with almost 90,000 cases in June 2020 in city of Mumbai. 3-10% of the patients with moderate to severe involvement required intensive care unit (ICU) admission with respiratory support. Patients admitted in ICU with an acute COVID event present with respiratory dysfunction and are more likely to have critical illness myopathy and neuropathy (CIMN). Physiotherapy services being integral part of non-pharmacological management of any ICU was implemented for patients with COVID 19; a novel viral disease. Objective: This retrospective study was undertaken to explore the physiotherapy practices that could be implemented in patients admitted with COVID 19 in the ICU and its effect on mobility and oxygen requirement as an outcome. Methodology: Following ethical permission of institute, the data was extracted from electronic data record sheet in which daily parameters for physiotherapy intervention were recorded. Data from a single ICU and step down unit (SDU) from 5th June to 5th July 2020 was analysed. Records of patients diagnosed with COVID 19 and admitted in ICU or SDU were studied. Those in the age group of 18 to 90 years, of either gender were included. Demographic characteristics, disease severity, oxygen requirement, mobility status, physiotherapy intervention were studied. Results: 278 record sheets (110 ICU and 168 SDU) were retrospectively analysed for demographics. 44.55% of patients improved with side lying position, 37.27% with prone position and 10.91% with quarter prone position. 4.55% of patient maintained oxygenation in propped up sitting. 2.73% could not be positioned. Chest physiotherapy techniques applied were deep breathing, ACBT, paced breathing and diaphragmatic breathing. Deep intercostal pressure on NIV along with vibrations was given to 12.72% of patients in the ICU. Group therapy sessions were conducted in SDU where 50.59% patients participated. ICU mobility score showed significant improvement on Wilcoxon Signed Ranks test status on day 7 in the ICU (z=-5.99, p=0.00) and SDU (z= 7.676, p=0.00) compared to day 1. Descriptive analysis showed a definitive reduction in oxygen support requirement. Conclusion: Most common form of physiotherapy interventions in patients with Covid 19 were therapeutic positioning, early mobilization and breathing exercises. Physiotherapy intervention appears promising in facilitating early patient ambulation and discharge. This study shows that it is safe and feasible to provide early physiotherapy treatment techniques in patients with COVID-19 using appropriate measures of infection prevention and cross contamination.
