OBJECTIVE Cervical mobilization has been shown to elicit effects on pain perception, autonomic function, and motor function in subjects who experience musculoskeletal pain. The improvement in motor function may be a direct effect of the treatment or secondary to a hypoalgesic effect. This study tested whether it is possible to alter motor function following(More)
Recent studies demonstrated that patients with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) have signs of thermal and mechanical hyperalgesia in extra-median territories suggesting an involvement of central pain mechanisms. As previous studies included patients with shoulder/arm symptoms or neck pain, a potential influence of these coexisting disorders cannot be excluded.(More)
Preliminary evidence from studies using quantitative sensory testing suggests the presence of central mechanisms in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) as apparent by widespread hyperalgesia. Hallmarks of central mechanisms after nerve injuries include nociceptive facilitation and reduced endogenous pain inhibition. Methods to study nociceptive(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose was to synthesize the current evidence for the impact of muscle fatigue on measures for active repositioning task of the glenohumeral or scapulothoracic movements including the absolute error and/or scapulothoracic resting alignment. METHODS We searched the PubMed, EMBASE, MEDLINE, CINAHL, SCOPUS, SportDiscuss and the Cochrane(More)
