Sensitivity to change and responsiveness of provocative load tests among athletes with patellar tendinopathy
Diego Ruffino, Matías Alfonso, Vilma Campana, Peter Malliaras
Braz J Phys Ther. 2024;28:101064
Highlights

  • Provocative loading tests are commonly used to identify individuals experiencing patellar tendon pain.

  • Single-leg decline squat and knee extension test are recommended for assessing pain severity and as an outcome measure.

  • Our results established the MCID for each of these tests which may be useful as outcome scores as individuals progress with their rehabilitation for patellar tendinopathy.

The time is now: Telehealth education and training in physical therapy
Luke M. Davies, Belinda J. Lawford
Braz J Phys Ther. 2024;28:101063
Highlights

  • Telehealth delivered physical therapy is effective and provides equivalent outcomes to in-person care.

  • Lack of telehealth knowledge is a significant barrier for implementation into clinical practice.

  • Physical therapy educators recognise the importance of telehealth education for emerging physical therapists.

Systematic Review
Assessment of description and implementation fidelity of clinical trials involving exercise-based treatment in individuals with rotator cuff tears: a scoping review
Larissa Pechincha Ribeiro, Francisca Curiel-Montero, Daiana Priscila Rodrigues-de-Souza, Paula Rezende Camargo, Francisco Alburquerque-Sendín
Braz J Phys Ther. 2024;28:101062
Highlights

  • The description and implementation fidelity of exercise intervention in physical therapy clinical trials interventions need to be better reported.

  • Researchers must include more information about the interventions, including infrastructure, dose, and adherence.

  • Implementation fidelity can be improved by providing detailed information about provider skills, how treatment is delivered, methods to ensure patient's understanding and ability to perform the exercise.

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
Braz J Phys Ther. 2024;28:101052
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.

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
Braz J Phys Ther. 2024;28:100596
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.

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
Braz J Phys Ther. 2024;28:101051
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.
