Superior effect of forceful compared with standard traction mobilizations in hip disability?
The results suggest that a compiled physiotherapy program including forceful traction mobilizations are short-term effective in reducing self-rated hip disability in primary healthcare. Expand
Primary functions of the quadratus femoris and obturator externus muscles indicated from lengths and moment arms measured in mobilized cadavers.
These findings indicate that maximal strength of the quadratus femoris muscle will be delivered in a flexed position towards extension, while maximalstrength of the obturator externus muscle will been delivered in an extended position towards flexion and adduction. Expand
Lengths of the external hip rotators in mobilized cadavers indicate the quadriceps coxa as a primary abductor and extensor of the flexed hip.
This cadaver study indicates that the quadriceps coxa is a primary abductor and extensor from flexed positions, a strength function which may be of major importance in rising and propulsive motions. Expand
The importance of the new CONSORT Statement for clinicians.
It is instructive to appraise the Participants and Intervention sections from the Method section of the Harts et al (2008) paper using the CONSORT checklist, to see whether there is sufficient information to form a full PITCOCS conclusion about the generalisability of the results. Expand
