Wstep: W procesie usprawniania osob z chorobami reumatycznymi wykorzystuje sie wiele zabiegow z zakresu cieplolecznictwa i krioterapii. W dostepnym piśmiennictwie niewiele jest opisow badan dotyczących efektow termicznych wystepujących w tkankach w wyniku stosowania takich zabiegow w obrebie reki reumatoidalnej. Z tego powodu autorzy podjeli probe określenia przebiegu dynamiki zmian temperatury po zastosowaniu powszechnie stosowanych u pacjentow z reumatoidalnym zapaleniem stawow (RZS) zabiegow…

Pain and mobility improvement and MDA plasma levels in degenerative osteoarthritis, low back pain, and rheumatoid arthritis after infrared A-irradiation.

In patients suffering from low back pain or rheumatoid arthritis, the pain and mobility improvements were accompanied by significant changes of MDA serum levels, however, MDA appears not a sensitive biofactor for changes of the pain intensity in degenerative osteoarthritis.

The American Rheumatism Association 1987 revised criteria for the classification of rheumatoid arthritis.

The revised criteria for the classification of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) were formulated from a computerized analysis of 262 contemporary, consecutively studied patients with RA and 262 control

Physical and exercise therapy for treatment of the rheumatoid hand.

At least in the short term, physical and, particularly, exercise therapy produce a favorable improvement in the functional status of the rheumatoid hand.

Autonomic nervous function assessment using thermal reactivity of microcirculation

The hand in the cold, performance and risk.

It is shown, that dexterity decreases can be described in terms of wind chill equivalent temperature and exposure time for a certain clothing and work configuration and the risk of skin freezing and reduced dexterity due to touching cold objects can be description using the contact coefficient of the respective material and the contact time.

Contractile properties of the human triceps surae with some observations on the effects of temperature and exercise

It was concluded that studies of the contractile properties of human muscle in vivo should be based on supramaximal stimulation, and that temperature and prior exercise should be carefully standardised in order to obtain reliable and meaningful results.

The physiologic basis and clinical applications of cryotherapy and thermotherapy for the pain practitioner.

Clinicians treating patients with musculoskeletal injuries and those with rheumatoid arthritis should be aware of current research findings regarding these modalities, because their choice of modality may affect the ultimate outcome of the patient being treated.

Role of afferent pathways of heat and cold in body temperature regulation

The insular cortex forms an integrative part of the limbic system and is closely tied with the hypothalamus, the amygdala, the anterior cingulate cortex and the orbitofrontal cortex and emerges as the main coordinator of behavioral, autonomic and endocrine responses to both non-noxious and noxious thermal stimuli.

Skin temperature response to cryotherapy.

Application of frozen peas produced mean skin temperatures adequate to induce localized skin analgesia, to reduce nerve conduction velocity, and to reduce metabolic enzyme activity to clinically relevant levels.
