Original Research
Developing and assessing the measurement properties of an instrument to assess the impact of musculoskeletal pain in children aged 9 to 12—the pediatric musculoskeletal pain impact summary score
Priscilla Viana da Silva, Steven J. Kamper, Alix Hall, Tie P. Yamato, Lise Hestbaek, Henrik H. Lauridsen, Christopher M. Williams
Highlights

  • MSK pain in children and adolescents is highly prevalent, yet instruments are scarce to measure MSK pain outcomes in children.

  • The Pediatric MSK Pain Impact summary score is a short and easy instrument to assess MSK pain impact in school-aged children (aged 9 to 12) with MSK pain.

  • The result of internal consistency was limited, and the construct validity showed borderline estimates of adequacy. However, the discriminative validity results showed that the instrument differentiates between children with frequent and infrequent MSK pain.

  • This is a factor analysis of the Brazilian-Portuguese version of the WAI questionnaire.

  • The various WAI versions, completed online, have adequate measurement properties.

  • The general construct validity of work ability can be evaluated using shorter versions of the WAI.

  • The WAI is a good questionnaire to evaluate the work ability of Brazilian workers.

Systematic Review
Quantity and quality are increasing but there's room for improvement: A scoping review of physical activity intervention trials
Marina B Pinheiro, Ana Helena S Reis, Jennifer N Baldwin, Anne M Moseley, Vishwesh Bapat, Courtney S Chan, Wing S. Kwok, Catherine Sherrington
Highlights

  • There are 1779 physical activity trials in the physiotherapy evidence database (PEDro).

  • The mean (SD) PEDro score was 5.3 (1.5) points out of 10, reflecting ‘fair to poor’ quality.

  • Journal impact factor is weakly correlated with trial quality (0.21, p < 0.001).

  • We make five recommendations to improve future trial quality.

Highlights

  • MRP values increased with increasing age.

  • MEP values, both for girls and boys, were higher than the MIP values for all ages.

  • Boys had higher MIP and MEP values than girls, regardless of age group.

  • Large 95% CI values were observed for MIP and MEP, mainly for the 12–19 age group.

  • For clinical practice, the nationality of the study should be considered.
