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.

Factorial analysis of the Brazilian-Portuguese version of the Work Ability Index, reproducibility and validity of the single item and the short version for online application
Renata Lumena Altruda Pucci, Anderson Martins da Silva, Rosimeire Simprini Padula
Highlights

  • 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.

Can a clinical assessment predict the functional status progression in patients with femoroacetabular impingement syndrome?
Viviane Bortoluzzi Frasson, Marco Aurélio Vaz, Marco Aurélio Telöken, Paulo David Fortis Gusmão, Marcus Vinicius Crestani, Bruno Manfredini Baroni
Highlights

  • Knowledge regarding predictive factors is essential in patients with FAIS.

  • iHOT-33, a normal FV and BMI can predict the iHOT-33 delta score.

  • Muscle strength and joint mobility were not prognostic factors.

  • This study helps to align patients’ expectations with their potential outcome.

Effectiveness of non-invasive therapies on pain, maximum grip strength, disability, and quality of life for lateral elbow tendinopathy: A systematic review and meta-analysis
Mariana G.M. Campos, Laísa B. Maia, Rodrigo O. Mascarenhas, Bianca M. Lourenço, Nicholas Henschke, Vinicius C. Oliveira
Highlights

  • Non-invasive therapies are first-line interventions for lateral elbow tendinopathy.

  • Acupuncture and BMV are effective for disability in the short-term.

  • The long-term effects of non-invasive intervention are unknown.

  • Clinicians should be cautious in decision making as the evidence is still unclear.
