Evidence Based Physiotherapy Approach for Frozen Shoulder. Post I

Frozen shoulder is a debilitating condition with a painful and significantly restricted range of motions of the shoulder joint. Clinically known as adhesive capsulitis, frozen shoulder can lead to disability generally lasting anywhere from 1 – 24 months (Page et al 2010). However, many patients may never fully recover from […]

Study on Counter Movement Jump Performance in a Force Platform – Part 2

Results The total height of the jump performed was 0.2446 m with the impulse and velocity of 152.8503 and 2.1908 m/sec respectively. Ground reaction forces Ground reaction force in the Z direction is positive throughout the jump with a little drop at the beginning of the take-off phase which then […]

Study on Counter Movement Jump Performance in a Force Platform – Part 1

Introduction Vertical jumping ability is an essential motor skill in many sporting, athletic and daily activities. It is common in many sports to perform loaded or unloaded jump series for better performance and explosive strength. This is the reason why many studies have analyzed the vertical jump from a physical […]

The Impact of Manipulation Therapy on Pain Experience

Bialoskyet al (2008) proposes a model of neurophysiological mechanisms in an attempt to explain the impact of Manipulation Therapy (MT) on pain experience in individuals. Within this model, a ‘spinal cord mediated’ mechanism is considered. This theory is supported by citation of a paper by Maliszaet al(2003) who demonstrated (using MRI) […]

The Determination of Anaerobic and Lactate Threshold

Introduction Determination of energy requirements during exercise only on the basis of maximal oxygen consumption (VO2 max) is not perfect, Wilmore, Costill and Kenney, (2008). According to studies of Astrand and Rodahl, (1977) and Wilmore, (1977), well trained athletes especially endurance athletes like long distance runners, cyclists may keep their […]

Effect of Spinal Manipulation in Piriformis Syndrome. A case study

ABSTRACT Objective: The objective of this study is to describe the efficacy of spinal manipulation therapy in the clinical management of a patient with sciatica symptoms due to piriformis syndrome. This is a condition which can be overlooked or misdiagnosed easily. Clinical features: A 35-year-old male patient is presented with chronic […]

EFFICACY OF SPINAL MANIPULATION THERAPY IN PIRIFORMIS SYNDROME. A Case Study.

Objective The objective of this study is to describe the efficacy of spinal manipulation therapy in the clinical management of a patient with sciatica symptoms due to piriformis syndrome. This condition is overlooked or misdiagnosed easily in clinical practice.   Clinical features A 35-year-old male visit in the clinic with chronic […]
