Association between sitting and occupational LBP
TLDR
Sitting for more than half a workday, in combination with WBV and/or awkward postures, does increase the likelihood of having LBP and/ or sciatica, and it is the combination of those risk factors, which leads to the greatest increase in LBP. Expand
The burden and determinants of neck pain in workers: results of the Bone and Joint Decade 2000-2010 Task Force on Neck Pain and Its Associated Disorders.
TLDR
Preliminary evidence is found that gender, occupation, headaches, emotional problems, smoking, poor job satisfaction, awkward work postures, poor physical work environment, and workers' ethnicity may be associated with neck pain. Expand
Biomechanical Differences Between Unilateral and Bilateral Landings From a Jump: Gender Differences
TLDR
Male and female recreational athletes performed unilateral landings with significant differences in knee kinematic and EMG variables compared to bilateral landings, and females landed with increased knee valgus and VGRF compared to males during both types of landing. Expand
Treatment of neck pain: noninvasive interventions: results of the Bone and Joint Decade 2000-2010 Task Force on Neck Pain and Its Associated Disorders.
TLDR
The best evidence synthesis suggests that therapies involving manual therapy and exercise are more effective than alternative strategies for patients with neck pain; this was also true of therapies which include educational interventions addressing self-efficacy. Expand
The burden and determinants of neck pain in the general population: results of the Bone and Joint Decade 2000-2010 Task Force on Neck Pain and Its Associated Disorders.
STUDY DESIGN Best evidence synthesis. OBJECTIVE To undertake a best evidence synthesis of the published evidence on the burden and determinants of neck pain and its associated disorders in theExpand
Course and prognostic factors for neck pain in whiplash-associated disorders (WAD): results of the Bone and Joint Decade 2000-2010 Task Force on Neck Pain and Its Associated Disorders.
TLDR
The Neck Pain Task Force undertook a best evidence synthesis to establish a baseline of the current best evidence on the course and prognosis for WAD, and preliminary evidence that the prevailing compensation system is prognostic for recovery in WAD. Expand
Course and Prognostic Factors for Neck Pain in the General Population: Results of the Bone and Joint Decade 2000–2010 Task Force on Neck Pain and Its Associated Disorders
TLDR
Psychosocial factors, including psychologic health, coping patterns, and need to socialize, were the strongest prognostic factors in neck pain and its associated disorders. Expand
Treatment of Neck Pain: Noninvasive Interventions: Results of the Bone and Joint Decade 2000–2010 Task Force on Neck Pain and Its Associated Disorders
TLDR
The best evidence synthesis suggests that therapies involving manual therapy and exercise are more effective than alternative strategies for patients with neck pain; this was also true of therapies which include educational interventions addressing self-efficacy. Expand
Body composition, endurance, strength, cross-sectional area, and density of MM erector spinae in men with and without low back pain.
TLDR
The back healthy group was significantly stronger and had longer trunk muscle endurance times than men with chronic LBP, and Radiological density for mm erector spinae was significantly decreased in the chronic L BP group compared to the back healthy and intermittent LBP groups. Expand
