Which treatment approach is better for hemiplegic shoulder pain in stroke patients: intra-articular steroid or suprascapular nerve block? A randomized controlled trial
TLDR
The results showed that neither injection technique was superior to the other and both injection procedures are safe and have a similar effect in stroke patients with hemiplegic shoulder pain.
Are rehabilitation outcomes after severe anoxic brain injury different from severe traumatic brain injury? A matched case–control study
TLDR
The multiple linear regression analysis showed that intensive care unit length of stay had an inverse relationship with the FAC change, and did not find significant differences in the rehabilitation outcomes of participants with ABI compared with participants with TBI.
Quality of life and functionality after lower limb amputations: comparison between uni- vs. bilateral amputee patients
TLDR
Physical capacity of bilateral lower extremity amputee patients is lower than the unilateral amputees; satisfaction with prosthesis and body image are not related with the amputation level; and the life quality and Satisfaction with prostheses are increased in parallel with the use of the prostheses.
Effects of botulinum toxin-A on the muscle architecture of stroke patients: the first ultrasonographic study.
TLDR
The results confirm that muscle structure changes due to botulinum toxin-A are confirmed and the use of musculoskeletal ultrasonography appears to be promising in this regard.
Medical complications, physical function and communication skills in patients with traumatic brain injury: A single centre 5-year experience
TLDR
Considering the wide spectrum of complications, this study advocates that these persons with TBI should be followed promptly by a multidisciplinary team.
The effects of balneotherapy on disease activity, functional status, pulmonary function and quality of life in patients with ankylosing spondylitis.
TLDR
The AS patients' symptoms, clinical findings, pulmonary function test results, and quality of life showed a trend to improve following balneotherapy, although without reaching significant differences.
The effects of electrical stimulation combined with continuous passive motion versus isometric exercise on symptoms, functional capacity, quality of life and balance in knee osteoarthritis:
TLDR
It is demonstrated that knee OA patients could improve their balance function in both static and dynamic conditions after CPM–ES combination or isometric exercise therapy, which might prevent knee Oa patients from falling down and increase their sense of security during physical activities.
Quality of Life in Patients with Lower Limb Amputation: Does It Affect Post-amputation Pain, Functional Status, Emotional Status and Perception of Body Image?
TLDR
It was found that QOL and emotional status deteriorated in male patients with LLA and depression, anxiety and body image disturbances may be the determinants of QOL.
Muscle Strength and Bone Mineral Density in Mine Victims with Transtibial Amputation
TLDR
The results indicate that muscle strength itself might not be of decisive importance for bone mass in transtibial amputees and that bone mineral density values of the femur and tibia were significantly decreased on the amputated side.
