BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Spasticity is a major disabling symptom in patients post stroke. Although studies have demonstrated that transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) can reduce spasticity, the duration of single session TENS is a subject of debate. The purpose of this study was to determine the sustainability of the effects of TENS applied over(More)
BACKGROUND Establishing and promoting connections between health researchers and health professional clinicians may help translate research evidence to clinical practice. Social media may have the capacity to enhance these connections. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to explore health researchers' and clinicians' current use of social media and their(More)
Few studies have reported the effects of lumbar spine mobilization on neurodynamics. In a recent study, Szlezak et al. (2011) reported immediate improvement of posterior chain neurodynamics [range of passive straight leg raise (SLR)] following ipsilateral lumbar spine zygopophyseal (Z) joint mobilization. We re-duplicated the study with a 24 h follow-up(More)
BACKGROUND Approximately 80% of research evidence relevant to clinical practice never reaches the clinicians delivering patient care. A key barrier for the translation of evidence into practice is the limited time and skills clinicians have to find and appraise emerging evidence. Social media may provide a bridge between health researchers and health(More)
BACKGROUND Glenohumeral subluxation is the most frequent complication in post stroke hemiplegia and its reduction has been considered an important goal. Though it has been demonstrated that cyclical electrical stimulation of posterior deltoid and supraspinatus muscles can reduce subluxation, the role of biceps has not been given due consideration.

INTRODUCTION Spasticity occurs in disorders of the central nervous system such as stroke, spinal cord injury (SCI), multiple sclerosis and traumatic brain injury. The recently developed clinical measurement for the measurement of spasticity is the Modified Modified Ashworth Scale (MMAS) PURPOSE OF STUDY: The purpose of this study is to determine the(More)
Presence of single umbilical persistent vitelline artery distinguishes sirenomelia from caudal regression syndrome. We report a case of a12-year-old boy who had bilateral umbilical arteries presented with fusion of both legs in the lower one third of leg. Both feet were rudimentary. The right foot had a valgus rocker-bottom deformity. All toes were present(More)
BACKGROUND Severe crouch gait in adolescent cerebral palsy is a difficult problem to manage. The patients develop loading of patellofemoral joint, leading to pain, gait deviation, excessive energy expenditure and progressive loss of function. Patella alta and avulsion of patella are the other complications. Different treatment options have been described in(More)
