1 Is Cardiometabolic Risk Associated with Physical Function in the Total Knee and Hip Arthroplasty Populations?The purpose of this study was to determine the association of each of five cardiometabolic risk factors (diabetes, hypertension, elevated triglycerides, low high density lipoproteins, obesity), and MetS (three or more risk factors present) with the level of physical function 1) prior to surgery in p...2011-12
2 Fit or Fat: The Relationship of Inflammation, Intramuscular Fat and Muscle, and Mobility Function in Older AdultsIntramuscular adipose tissue (IMAT) is an important negative predictor of muscle and mobility function in older adults. While IMAT has been theorized to increase with aging, more recent evidence suggests that IMAT may be a byproduct of inactivity rather than aging per se. The mechanism of IMAT's inf...2012-12
3 The prognostic value of electrodiagnostic testing in patients with suspected lumbosacral radiculopathyElectrodiagnostic testing, consisting of needle electromyography and nerve conduction studies, is the primary method used to objectively measure and document pathological changes or injury to the neuromuscular system, including proximally located spinal nerve roots. Clinicians employ electrodiagnost...electrodiagnostic testing; electromyography; lumbar radiculopathy; lumbosacral radiculopathy; physical therapy; sciatica2013-05
4 The influence of the fear-avoidance model factors on patients scheduled to undergo lumbar disc herniation surgeryAlthough the prognosis of patients with a lumbar disc herniation (LDH) diagnosis is generally favorable, 20% to 30% continue reporting pain, disability, and unfavorable outcome regardless of treatment received. The Fear Avoidance Model (FAM) is one among the most known models in low back pain (LBP) ...Discectomy; Fear-avoidance; Low back pain; Surgery2013-05
5 The Influence of Leg Pain on Recovery After Acute Low Back Pain and Subsequent Treatment ChoiceLow back (LBP) pain is common and represents a significant societal burden due to costs associated with lost work productivity and medical care. LBP presenting with leg pain, or lumbosacral radicular syndrome (LRS), worsens prognosis and increases disability and cost. Recovery from LBP is highly var...2014-05
6 Effects of acute muscle fatigue on postural control in healthy adults and persons with Parkinson's DiseaseFalls are one of the most disabling features of aging and are increasingly common in persons with balance-impairments such as Parkinson's disease (PD). Falls can cause physical injuries such as fractures and/or head injuries leading to functional incapacity, increased risk of nursing home admission,...Muscle fatigue; Parkinson's disease; Postural control; Physical therapy; Aging; Kinesiology2014-08
7 Muscle force steadiness and accuracy in older adults who have fallen: exploring their ability to change and any links to mobilityOlder adults experience age-related challenges including muscle weakness, impaired mobility, and increased fall risk. Further, controlling submaximal muscle forces may also be impaired, particularly with eccentric (ECC) contracions, as they demonstrate greater vaiability in maintaining steady and ac...Aging; Concentric; Eccentric; Muscle force accuracy; Muscle force steadiness; Strength training2014-08
8 Gaze, posture, balance, and training effects in persons with multiple sclerosisMultiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, neurological disorder characterized by imbalance and falls. Accurate perception and integration of three sensory inputs - the vestibular, vision, and somatosensory, is critical to produce human gaze and posture orientation. In MS, demyelination of pathways withi...Dizziness; galvanic-induced sway; Multiple Sclerosis; Postural Balance; Reflex; Vestibulo-Ocular; saccades2015
9 The Influence of Psychosocial Variables on Treatment Outcomes, Expectations and Costs in Acute Low Back PainLow back pain (LBP) is a common and costly problem. Among the top primary care research priorities are identifying prognostic subgroups of patients with LBP and identifying specific management strategies based on relevant subgroups. The Start Back Screening Tool (SBST) is a primary care decision to...2015-05
10 Enhanced Rehabilitation Targeting Strength and Movement Pattern Symmetry Following Hip FractureAsymmetries in movement and muscle function are ubiquitous and long lasting in those who survive after hip fracture. Enduring asymmetries in lower limb muscle function (i.e., strength and power) have been associated with fall frequency and impaired physical mobility among older adults. Lower limb di...Physical therapy; Aging; Health sciences2015-12
11 Effect of fear avoidance treatment for acute/sub-acute low back pain patients in physical therapy clinics: a randomized clinical trialNonspecific low back pain (LBP) is defined as pain between the 12th rib and the inferior gluteal folds, with or without leg pain and present in the absence of any specific pathology. Approximately 80 percent of all people experience low back problems at some point in their lives, and many are at ris...Physical therapy2016
12 Cold-Water-Immersion and the Influence of Dynamic Balance Task and Postural SwayAnkle sprains in an athletic setting are considered one of the most common injuries sustained. Cryokinetics is commonly used in the treatment of these injuries. Recent literature suggests dynamic balance rehabilitation is influential for faster return to functional activity. Limited research has bee...Physical therapy2018
