PURPOSE Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and labral pathology have been recognized as causative factors for hip pain. The clinical diagnosis is now based on MRI-A (magnetic resonance imaging-arthrogram) because the physical diagnostic tests available are diverse and information on diagnostic accuracy and validity is lacking. The purpose of this systematic(More)
BACKGROUND Hip arthroscopies are often used in the treatment of intra-articular hip injuries. Patient-reported outcomes (PRO) are an important parameter in evaluating treatment. It is unclear which PRO questionnaires are specifically available for hip arthroscopy patients. The aim of this systematic review was to investigate which PRO questionnaires are(More)
Although eccentric exercise training has shown favorable results in chronic mid-portion Achilles tendinopathy, the optimum dosage remains unknown. A systematic review of the literature was performed in accordance with the PRISMA guidelines, in order to describe different exercise protocols and to determine the most effective training parameters. An(More)
BACKGROUND The popularity of running continues to increase, which means that the incidence of running-related injuries will probably also continue to increase. Little is known about risk factors for running injuries and whether they are sex-specific. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to review information about risk factors and sex-specific differences(More)
To investigate whether double-leg stance could reveal balance deficits in subjects with functional ankle instability (FAI) and whether such an assessment of static balance would be correlated with measures of dynamic instability, 16 individuals with FAI and 16 healthy controls participated in this study. Static postural control was tested using double-leg(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the acromiohumeral distance (AHD) and the change of this distance during abduction between the dominant and nondominant shoulders of female overhead athletes and to compare AHD between elite and recreational female athletes. DESIGN : Case-control study. SETTING Laboratory, institutional. INDEPENDENT VARIABLES "Side" (dominant and(More)
Numerous athletes with patellar tendinopathy (PT) use a patellar strap or sports tape during sports. This study's aim was to investigate the short-term effect of these orthoses on patellar tendon pain. Participants performed the single-leg decline squat, vertical jump test, and triple-hop test under four different conditions (patellar strap, sports tape,(More)
STUDY DESIGN A comparative study. OBJECTIVES To assess whether in subjects with unilateral chronic ankle instability the dynamic reaction time of the affected ankle differs from the healthy ankle and from ankles of a control group. BACKGROUND Reaction time is an essential element in joint protection against sudden unexpected excessive movement requiring(More)
AIM The Royal Dutch Society for Physical Therapy (KNGF) instructed a multidisciplinary group of Dutch anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) experts to develop an evidence statement for rehabilitation after ACL reconstruction. DESIGN Clinical practice guideline underpinned by systematic review and expert consensus. DATA SOURCES A multidisciplinary working(More)
BACKGROUND Femoroacetabular impingement has been recognized as a common cause of hip pain and dysfunction, especially in athletes. Femoroacetabular impingement can now be better treated by hip arthroscopy but it is unclear what postoperative rehabilitation of hip arthroscopy should look like. Several rehabilitation protocols have been described, but none(More)
