  • The mHSS and HOS-ADL mean scores are nearly ∼30 points greater than the iHOT-33 score.

  • The HOS-ADL score, but not the mHSS score, has acceptable agreement with the iHOT-33 score.

  • The HOS-ADL can be considered a valid instrument to assess health-related status in patients with FAI syndrome.

To what extent do typical components of shoulder clinical evaluation explain upper-extremity disability? A cross-sectional study
Rodrigo Py Gonçalves Barreto, Paula M. Ludewig, Jonathan P. Braman, Ernest Davenport, Larissa Pechincha Ribeiro, Paula Rezende Camargo
Braz J Phys Ther. 2022;26:100423

  • MRI findings alone did not explain shoulder function.

  • Pain catastrophizing has a bigger role in shoulder function.

  • Muscle strength and sex explain only a small portion of shoulder function.

  • Scapular dyskinesis may not accurately explain shoulder function.

  • ACL-RSI-SV in Brazilian Portuguese has appropriate measurement properties.

  • ACL-RSI-SV has a high correlation with the ACL-RSI full version.

  • ACL-RSI-SV identifies those who can return to sport at the pre-injury level.

What is the believability of evidence that is read or heard by physical therapists?
Chad E. Cook, Flavio Bonnet, Nicolas Maragano, Alessandra N. Garcia, Arne Vielitz, Sean P. Riley
Braz J Phys Ther. 2022;26:100428

  • Physical therapists (PTs) from 36 countries participated in the survey.

  • PTs strongly believe what they read or hear about most treatments.

  • Belief is influenced by years of practice and time and access to literature.

  • Social media engagement was not the most robust predictor in beliefs.

Body fat and skeletal muscle mass, but not body mass index, are associated with pressure hyperalgesia in young adults with patellofemoral pain
Amanda Schenatto Ferreira, Simon Lack, Bianca Taborda, Marcella Ferraz Pazzinatto, Fábio Mícolis de Azevedo, Danilo De Oliveira Silva
Braz J Phys Ther. 2022;26:100430

  • Higher body fat was associated with pressure hyperalgesia in patellofemoral pain.

  • Lower skeletal muscle mass was associated with pressure hyperalgesia in patellofemoral pain.

  • Body mass index was not associated with any measure of pressure hyperalgesia.

  • Higher body fat and body mass index, and lower skeletal muscle mass were associated with higher pain.

  • Adults with patellofemoral pain might benefit from assessment of body composition.

Evolution of the thematic structure and main producers of physical therapy interventions research: A bibliometric analysis (1986 to 2017)
Lidia Carballo-Costa, Zoe A. Michaleff, Rodrigo Costas, Alejandro Quintela-del-Río, Jamile Vivas-Costa, Anne M. Moseley
Braz J Phys Ther. 2022;26:100429

  • Physical therapy field (producers, impact) was characterised using bibliometrics.

  • Eight topics describe the physical therapy research indexed in PEDro.

  • The thematic structure of physical therapy was found to change from 1986 to 2017.

  • Growth in scientific output from emerging countries e.g. China and Brazil.

  • Most productive producers do not always have the highest average citation impact.

Functional mobility and 10-year all-cause and cause-specific mortality in older people from São Paulo, Brazil
Carla Ferreira do Nascimento, Alejandra Andrea Roman Lay, Yeda Aparecida Oliveira Duarte, Alexandre Dias Porto Chiavegatto Filho
Braz J Phys Ther. 2022;26:100431

  • The chair stand test was a better predictor of mortality than gait speed.

  • Those with poorer mobility are at increased risk of dying from cardiovascular causes.

  • Cognitive impairment increased the risk of dying among those with worse mobility.

  • Multimorbidity also increased the risk of dying among those with worse mobility.

  • Worst performance in the tests was marginally associated with mortality by neoplasms.
