Understanding the neural processes that govern the attribution of a predictive value to environmental stimuli is a major issue in behavioural neuroscience. The main strategy to explore this question has been the use of Pavlovian fear conditioning paradigms. While a majority of studies have focussed on the specific role of the hippocampus and amygdala in(More)
INTRODUCTION Individuals with tension-type headache (TTH), in addition to headache pain, typically suffer from pericranial muscle tenderness and increased cervical muscle tone. Physical and physiological outcomes related to musculoskeletal function, however, are not commonly assessed in clinical studies and not systematically proposed as outcome measures in(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to critically appraise and synthesize evidence on the effectiveness of noninvasive interventions, excluding pharmacological treatments, for musculoskeletal thoracic pain. METHODS Randomized controlled trials (RCTs), cohort studies, and case-control studies evaluating the effectiveness of noninvasive interventions(More)
To update findings of the 2000–2010 Bone and Joint Decade Task Force on Neck Pain and its Associated Disorders and evaluate the effectiveness of non-invasive and non-pharmacological interventions for the management of patients with headaches associated with neck pain (i.e., tension-type, cervicogenic, or whiplash-related headaches). We searched five(More)
From January 1988 to May 1991, 30 patients (mean age: 27 years old; range: 15 to 45) sustained 57 tendon injuries in 49 fingers. They were treated by primary repair with assisted post-operative mobilisation by a dynamic splint. Adhesion of extensor apparatus rate was 12 p. cent but only one had a functional impairment. No other complications were noted. At(More)
Background: Meningiomas are the most common brain tumor in the adult population. This case report describes the epidemiology, the clinical presentation as well as the current treatment options for this condition. Case presentation: A 49 year-old man attended a chiropractic clinic with non-specific chronic low back pain. Upon the history taking and the(More)
The objective was to study the relationship between life events (LE) and the clinical status of patients suffering from recently diagnosed rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in a 2 yr follow-up. As part of a multicentre European cohort study, 370 French and Dutch patients were questioned three times at 1 yr intervals about LE which had occurred in the previous year.(More)
The use of genuine sheepskin was compared to the use of synthetic sheepskin in two long term care institutions. Data for the control group of 44 residents placed on synthetic sheepskin were obtained by retrospective chart audit. Sixty-four residents were randomly placed on genuine merino sheepskin (WoolTec USA, Maspeth, NY). The two groups were similar in(More)
BACKGROUND Exercise is a key component of rehabilitation for soft tissue injuries of the shoulder; however its effectiveness remains unclear. OBJECTIVE Determine the effectiveness of exercise for shoulder pain. METHODS We searched seven databases from 1990 to 2015 for randomized controlled trials (RCTs), cohort and case control studies comparing(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to evaluate changes in neuromechanical responses and clinical outcomes in chronic low back pain participants after 4 sessions of biofeedback training. METHODS Twenty-one participants took part in an electromyography biofeedback 4-session training program aimed at reducing lumbar paraspinal muscle activity during(More)
