INTRODUCTION Motor skills play an important role during life span, and older adults need to learn or relearn these skills. The purpose of this study was to investigate how aging affects induction of improved movement performance by motor training. METHODS Serial Reaction Time Test (SRTT) was used to assess movement performance during 8 blocks of motor(More)
OBJECTIVE The purposes of this study were to investigate the prevalence of and risk factors for low back pain (LBP) in teachers and to evaluate the association of individual and occupational characteristics with the prevalence of LBP. METHODS In this cross-sectional study, 586 asymptomatic teachers were randomly selected from 22 primary and high schools(More)
BACKGROUND Activity of deep abdominal muscles increases the lumbar stability. Majority of previous studies indicated abdominal muscle activity dysfunction during static activity in patients with low back pain (LBP). However, the number of studies that evaluated deep abdominal muscle activity in dynamic standing activities in patients is limited, while this(More)
This review compared knee muscle activity between ACL-deficient (ACLD) patients and healthy controls during gait, to find out whether the available electromyography (EMG) studies support Quadriceps (Q-ceps) inhibition or hamstring facilitation during gait in ACLD patients. A systematic review was conducted to retrieve the EMG studies of knee muscles during(More)
The aim of this randomized double blinded sham-controlled study was to determine the effect of cerebellar anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (a-tDCS) on online and offline motor learning in healthy older individuals. Thirty participants were randomly assigned in experimental (n = 15) or sham tDCS (n = 15) groups. Participants in experimental(More)
BACKGROUND Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most widespread disabling neurological condition in young adults around the world. The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of explicit information (EI) on motor-sequence learning in MS patients. METHODS Thirty patients with relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS), age: 29.5 (SD = 5.6) years and 30 healthy(More)
BACKGROUND There was controversy in finding of studies related pelvic floor muscle (PFM) rehabilitation of subjects with low back pain (LBP), while this issue is very important for treatment of subjects with LBP. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate PFM contraction in three conditions of alone and with abdominal hollowing (AH) or abdominal(More)
BACKGROUND Ultrasound (US) imaging can be used for the measurement of trunk muscle activity. The displacements of US transducer, especially during more dynamic situations, however, may disturb the measurement results. To control this variable, some studies have used transducer fixator (TF), but no study evaluated the effect of using TF on US reliability in(More)
The aging population is growing rapidly. Risk of falling is higher in older people compared to young adults due to several reasons including poor posture and balance. The main aim of this study was to investigate the effect of cerebellar anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (a-tDCS) on static and dynamic postural stability in older individuals.(More)
Duodenal ulcer is an uncommon condition in children, that is why it is not usually considered as the differential diagnosis unless it presents with complications including perforation and haemorrhage. Moreover, duodenal ulcer perforation is an uncommon entity in paediatric age group. Early diagnosis and treatment is crucial in order to improve survival. A(More)
