Felipe Reis, Tonya Mizell Palermo, Louise Acalantis, Leandro Calazans Nogueira, Ney Meziat-Filho, Adriaan Louw, Kelly Ickmans
Braz J Phys Ther. 2022;26:348

  • Pain is a common problem in the field of pediatrics.

  • To date, pain education resources for young children are lacking.

  • A comic book about pain education can be a useful method to present pain concepts to children.

  • Pain education can contribute to changing children's maladaptive beliefs and behaviors.

Misconceptions of physical therapists and medical doctors regarding the impact of lifting a light load on low back pain
Joséphine Rialet-Micoulau, Valoris Lucas, Christophe Demoulin, Laurent Pitance
Braz J Phys Ther. 2022;26:100385

  • Beliefs that some strategies to lift a light load may be harmful are common among health care professionals, particularly medical students and doctors.

  • The majority of qualified physical therapists are aware that all strategies used to lift a light load are safe.

  • Taking a pain education course positively impacts physical therapists’ attitudes and beliefs.

  • The general course of acute low back pain does not reflect the aging heterogeneity.

  • Older adults with acute low back pain have varied pain and disability trajectories.

  • Complete recovery trajectories and persistent severe trajectories were identified.

  • Worse biopsychosocial health was associated with persistent severe trajectories.

  • Specific clinical care for different courses of low back pain can be implemented.

Evaluation of the female pelvic floor with infrared thermography: a cross sectional study
Halana Karolina Vicente da Silva, Maria Clara Eugênia Oliveira, Edson Silva-Filho, Adriana Gomes Magalhães, Grasiela Nascimento Correia, Maria Thereza Albuquerque Barbosa Cabral Micussi
Braz J Phys Ther. 2022;26:100390

  • Infrared thermography (IRT) is a noninvasive tool that can assess the pelvic floor (PF) muscles.

  • IRT detected changes in colors percentage at rest and during PF muscles contraction.

  • There is a strong correlation between vaginal manometry and temperature of PF.

  • IRT is a promising new method to assess the PFM.

  • No evidence was found that photobiomodulation applied during combined training promote any additional effects.

  • Participants already adapted to a specific stimulus or previously trained do not benefit from the use of photobiomodulation for recovery.

  • Photobiomodulation was not superior to placebo and control on functional, clinical, and systemic outcomes.
