Article
Background Benefits of physical activity has been shown for adolescents; however, there is a decline trend in number of adolescents meeting current WHO recommendations. This trend underlines the importance of identifying factors associated with adolescents’ physical activity level (PAL) with considerations of regional and cultural differences to pl...

Aims: The purpose of this Phase II study is to identify the perceived strengths and weaknesses of a collaborative tiered school-based physiotherapy (PT) service delivery model, considering its core attributes and tiered interventions identified in the first phase of the study (Phase I), and explore the potential facilitators and barriers to implem...
Article
Aims: The purpose of this scoping review was to explore the available literature and identify gaps regarding the acceptability of telerehabilitation interventions provided by pediatric physical therapists and occupational therapists. Methods: We followed the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA-ScR) framewor...
Article
Purpose: To describe the scope of practice of physical therapists (PTs) working with children worldwide. Methods: PTs working with children in any context and country were invited via social media and email campaigns to complete an online survey containing 42 questions about work context and service delivery. Descriptive statistics were computed...

Background: Although postural impairments have long been reported following a concussion in the pediatric population, we still know very little about who is more at risk of presenting those balance problems and how the mechanism of injury (sport vs non-sport) could influence balance problems after concussions. The purpose of this study was to comp...
Article
The purpose of this study was to determine how dual-task (DT) effect on gait differs among adolescents with different fitness and health profiles. The gait performances of 365 adolescents aged 13–14 years were assessed at single and DT walking. The proportional changes in gait parameters from single to dual were regressed against gender, body mass...
Article
Background This study aimed at estimating the extent to which a combination therapy of extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) with usual care (exercise and orthotic support) improve functional ability in the patient with plantar fasciitis when compared to usual care alone. Methods Participants with plantar fasciitis were randomly allocated into t...
Article
The objective of this study was to systematically analyze the literature surrounding dual-task (DT) effects on gait in typically developing children (TDC) and to conduct meta-analyses where applicable. After reviewing the abstracts of 676 articles, a total of 22 studies were included. The outcomes of interest were relative change in gait speed, cad...
Article
Background Typically, people with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) progress to develop a gait pattern that is characterized by quick, short and shuffling steps. Gait cycle is altered and lacks definition and fluidity. Gait training combined with a variety of feedback modalities for PD are usually based on non-immediate and externally-based cues but none of...

This study aimed at estimating the extent to which a combination therapy of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) with exercise and orthotic support (usual care) affects functional ability in the patient with plantar fasciitis (PF) when compared to usual care alone. Participants with PF were randomly allocated into two groups: LLLT (n = 27) and control (n...
Article
Background: This study aimed at estimating the effectiveness of two commonly used modalities-extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) and low-level laser therapy (LLLT)-each combined with usual care (exercises and orthotic supports) in comparison to only usual care to relieve pain in patients with plantar fasciitis (PF). Methods: Participants wi...

The aim of this literature search was to identify nature and extent of the evidence supporting the development of dual tasking skills in typically developing children. We systematically searched PsycINFO, Ovid and Pubmed for studies evaluating dual task performances of children and adolescents < 18 years of age. 31 studies published in English from...
Article
Background Plantar heel pain in adulthood is a common, disabling and chronic foot problem. Most cases have a biomechanical etiology however various systemic arthritis also causes heel pain. Plantar fasciitis which is caused by secondary degenerative changes in the plantar fascia, is the most common cause of plantar heel pain. Despite the common use...
Article
Background Plantar heel spur syndrome or calcaneal spur is radiologically described as an exostotic plantar bone formation at the insertion of the plantar fascia and muscles. Painful plantar heel is a relatively common clinical entity and plantar fasciitis and calcaneal spurs are frequently associated with this condition. Despite the common use of...
