OBJECTIVES To determine the amount of agreement among general rehabilitation sources for both superficial heating and therapeutic ultrasound contraindications. DATA SOURCES English-language
Improving the Efficiency of Electrical Stimulation Activities After Spinal Cord Injury
TLDR
A review of the literature suggests that premature force decline and early fatigue with NMES and FES activities may be alleviated with decreased current frequency and increased current intensity.
The Fenzian Unit: Applications to Physical Therapy and Beyond
TLDR
The development of a low electrical stimulation signal through the Fenzian unit has provided a new outlook on healing and has the potential to change the world of healthcare as the authors know it.
The Effects of Intermittent Stretching Following a 4-Week Static Stretching Protocol: A Randomized Trial
TLDR
Intermittent stretching (i.e., 2 or 3 days/week) is sufficient to maintain ROM gains acquired from a prior static stretching program, and Clinicians and trainers may educate their clients of the benefits of intermittent stretching to maintain flexibility.
Effect of muscle energy technique and static stretching on pain and functional disability in patients with mechanical neck pain: A randomized controlled trial☆
TLDR
Muscle energy technique was better than stretching technique in improving pain and functional disability in people with mechanical neck pain.
Temperature change in lumbar periarticular tissue with continuous ultrasound.
TLDR
Investigation of the heating effect of ultrasound on periarticular tissue in the lumbar spine found the higher-intensity ultrasound resulted in greater and faster temperature increase, and the 2.0-W/cm2 ultrasound application produced a greater overall level of heating.

The Role of Rehabilitation in Managing Pain in Seniors
TLDR
The basic principles of rehabilitation in the geriatric population are to prevent disability, treat specific impairments, prevent secondary disability, restore functional ability, and prevent handicaps by adapting to disability.
OVERVIEW OF PRINCIPLES IN NEUROMUSCULAR STIMULATION BY ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS: CURRENT STATE ANALYSIS WITH EMPHASIS ON MAGNETIC SIMULATION TECHNOLOGY IN PHYSIOTHERAPY AND AESTHETICS
The application of electric currents on human body has been intensively studied in the past and today, its neurostimulative effects are well understood. However, the utilization of induced currents
Physical Therapist Management of Stiff Person Syndrome in a 24-Year-Old Woman
TLDR
This patient showed decreased pain and muscle spasms, as well as improvements in gait and range of motion, and was fitted for a custom-made ankle-foot orthosis.
