Purpose: Low back pain (LBP) is one of the major spine disorders which seriously impairs many daily activities and limits functional skills. The role of exercise in LBP management is well documented, even if the debate about the most effective type of training is still present. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of a 4 weeks specif...

Purpose: The postural "disorder" translates, first of all, into a condition of general and local stress and fatigue and, secondly, into wear and degenerative phenomena destined to configure pathological situations, especially in sport. The study focused on basketball, a sport with alternating aerobic-anaerobic commitment, that requires good coordin...

Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is the most prevalent types of scoliosis, affecting up to 3% of children around the world. The progression of AIS can cause alteration in psychological components such as self-perceived body image and self-identity, which negatively affect the teenager quality of life (QoL). The mainly aim of this cross-section...

Purpose: Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) is one of the most common spinal disease during growth. Although the role of physical exercise has been previously demonstrated in AIS treatment, a debate still exists about the most efficient exercise setting to approach this problem. Recently, several studies demonstrated that self-correction, core t...

Methods: Nineteen players from a local male team were included in the research during off season period. They were divided into a Training group (TG, n=11, age 22 years, weight 71.2 ± 4.8 kg, height 174 ± 5,8 cm) and a Control group (CG, n=8, age 22 years, weight 73.2 ± 4.1 Kg, height 176 ± 6,3 cm). TG was submitted to a 8 weeks core training proto...

Purpose Low Back Pain (LBP) is a common spine disorder related to muscle imbalances at different level. In particular, biomechanics of breathing can be negatively modified in people affected by LBP through his connection with postural system. The aim of this study was to determine if a Respiratory Muscles Endurance Training (RMET) using Spirotiger...

Purpose: The reverse shoulder prosthesis (RSP) was developed to relieve pain and improve functional outcomes in patients with glenohumeral arthritis and deficiency of the rotator cuff. Even if clinical and functional outcomes regarding the use of the RSP were reported by literature, data concerning progressive deltoid adaptation to this non-anatom...

Introduzione: gli ischio-crurali rappresentano il gruppo muscolare più deficitario in termini di flessibilità nella maggior parte dei giovani calciatori (1). In tale direzione, lo stretching dinamico sembra essere una tra le metodiche più efficaci per ridurre tale limitazione con finalità preventive ed allenanti (2,3,4). Obiettivo: valutare l’effic...

Aim: Core training exercises are commonly performed in clinical, fitness and sport fields to improve performance and wellness. Despite his wide diffusion for healthy and unhealthy people, confusion still exist about focus, time and kind of training and many different tools are currently suggested (barbells, dumbbells, unstable surfaces, gliding and...

Aim: Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) in one of the most complex spine deformity related to many postural and neuromuscular disease. Actually, scoliosis specific exercise is the primary conservative treatment for mild and moderate curves, in conjunction with braces for serious cases. Despite exercise-based therapy has a large diffusion, confus...

The imbalance between vastus medialis oblique (VMO) and vastus lateralis (VL) strength is one of the main factor for patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) onset, related to improper alignment of the patella. The aim of this paper is to investigate the effects of knee flexion, knee rotation and ankle flexion attitudes on the activity of the VMO and VL...

Background: Subcutaneous almost substituted subpectoral approach of implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) implantation as a less invasive surgical technique. However, the impact of this change in placement site on procedure-related shoulder impairment is poorly understood. Methods: Candidates for ICD implantation were prospectively evalua...

Standing balance improved post training, with favourable changes in stabilizing muscles (OI and ES). Reduced BF activity suggests that improved coordination of muscles involved in balance reduced body sway; the core muscles were able to control body position with less activity post training suggesting improved muscle coordination and efficiency. Th...

Power-angle curves, describing the isotonic sub-maximal movement of the lower extremities, are better means to evaluate the effects of training protocols and to highlight functional differences between the legs. The aim of this work was to compare the morphology of power-angle curves of pathological subjects (PS) and healthy subjects (HS) and to ev...

Il concetto di "core training" è ampiamente diffuso nelle moderne metodologie di allenamento, nonostante sia spesso collegato a pratiche da campo non pienamente supportate dalla ricerca scientifica. Il termine "core" identifica il "centro funzionale del corpo" in grado di garantire una "adeguata stabilità prossimale al fine di ottimizzare la mobili...
