SUMMARY INTRODUCTION The mechanisms of pain reduction have not completely been established following patellar taping in subjects with patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS); although it might be related to alteration in the kinetics of the patellofemoral joint. METHODS Patellofemoral Joint Reaction Force (PFJRF) of eighteen subjects with PFPS and eighteen(More)
Although patellar taping has been shown to reduce pain in participants with patellofemoral pain syndrome, the mechanisms of pain reduction have not completely been established following its application. The purpose of this study was to evaluate EMG activity of vastus medialis and vastus lateralis following the application of patellar taping during a(More)
INTRODUCTION Dentistry is one of the professions that requires a high degree of concentration during the treatment of patients. There are many predisposing factors, affecting dentists when working on the patient's teeth, including neck flexion, arm abduction and inflexible postural positions, which may put them at the risk of developing musculoskeletal(More)
OBJECTIVE Several studies have investigated asymmetry and loading patterns in different spine pathologies, motor disorders, and other conditions; there is a lack of knowledge on these aspects in chronic low back pain (CLBP). The aim of this study was to analyse asymmetry and loading patterns in patients with nonspecific chronic low back pain (NCLBP)(More)
INTRODUCTION Although measuring patellofemoral joint reaction forces (PFJRF) may provide reliable evidence for conservative treatments to correct probable malalignment in subjects with patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS), it may be necessary to determine whether the inherent properties of the dominant leg influences the reliability of measuring PFJRF. The(More)
STUDY DESIGN A cross-sectional, observational study. OBJECTIVE To determine whether pain and fear of pain have competing effects on postural sway in patients with low back pain (LBP). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Competing effects of pain and pain-related fear on postural control can be proposed as the likely explanation for inconsistent results regarding(More)
INTRODUCTION Anterior knee pain or patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) is supposed to be related to patellofemoral joint reaction forces (PFJRF). Measuring these forces may therefore provide reliable evidence for conservative treatments to correct probable malalignment in subjects with PFPS. The aim of the present study was to examine the reliability of(More)
INTRODUCTION Measuring patellofemoral joint reaction forces (PFJRF) may provide reliable evidence for patellar taping to correct probable malalignment in subjects with anterior knee pain, or patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). The aim of the present study was to examine the reliability of PFJRF measurements in different patellofemoral conditions during(More)
INTRODUCTION Measuring vasti muscles activity may provide reliable evidence for patellar taping to correct probable malalignment in subjects with patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). The aim of present study was to examine the reliability of vasti activity measurements in different patellofemoral conditions during squatting in healthy subjects. METHODS(More)
INTRODUCTION Although measuring vasti muscle activity may reveal whether pain relief is associated with altering this parameter during functional activities in subjects with patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS), it may be necessary to determine whether the inherent properties of the dominant leg influences the reliability of measuring VMO/VL amplitude.
