Systematic review

  • Elastic kinesiology tape (KT) has a mixed effect on active joint position sense (AJPS) of healthy shoulders (low certainty).

  • Elastic KT improves active or passive JPS among pathological shoulders (very low certainty).

  • Elastic KT has no effect on kinesthesia with subacromial pain syndrome (very low certainty).

  • Overall, evidence remains speculative as to the effects of elastic KT on shoulder proprioception.

Vascular flow limitations affecting the cervico-cranial region: Understanding ischaemia
Alan Taylor, Roger Kerry, Firas Mourad, Nathan Hutting
Braz J Phys Ther. 2023;27:100493

  • Vascular flow limitations, may occur in the presence or absence of vascular pathology.

  • Not all flow limitations affecting the cervico-cranial region are confined to the neck.

  • An understanding of the mechanisms of flow limitation may aid clinical reasoning.

  • ‘Vascular flow limitation’ and ‘ischaemia’ are recommended for communication/triage.

Ana Paula dos Santos Bento, Ney Meziat Filho, Arthur de Sá Ferreira, Ana Paula Cassetta, Renato Santos de Almeida
Braz J Phys Ther. 2023;27:100504

  • Individuals with chronic pain present poor sleep quality and sleepiness.

  • Individuals with chronic pain present greater rapid eye movement sleep phase latency.

  • Individuals with chronic pain present lower sleep efficiency.

  • Central sensitization signs are associated with sleep hypoxemia.

Comparison of rotator cuff to glenoid proximity based on scapulothoracic upward rotation classification
Rebekah L. Lawrence, Gaura Saini, Justin L. Staker, Paula M. Ludewig
Braz J Phys Ther. 2023;27:100505

  • Glenoid-to-footprint contact was identified in 75% of participants.

  • Decreased upward rotation does not increase glenoid-to-footprint contact.

  • Decreased upward rotation significantly alters the location of closest proximity.

Effects of foot-ankle exercises on foot-ankle kinematics, plantar pressure, and gait kinetics in people with diabetic neuropathy: Secondary outcomes from a randomized controlled trial
Renan L. Monteiro, Jane S.S.P. Ferreira, Érica Q. Silva, Ronaldo H. Cruvinel-Júnior, Jady L. Veríssimo, Sicco A. Bus, Isabel C.N. Sacco
Braz J Phys Ther. 2023;27:100517

  • A 12-week group-based foot-ankle therapeutic exercises program was proposed for people with diabetic neuropathy.

  • The foot-ankle exercises program showed a good adherence and no adverse effects among the participants.

  • The therapeutic program improved the hip extensor moment at push-off of gait after 12 weeks.

  • The proposed program increased the contact area of the hallux during gait after 12 weeks.
