Abstract Background: Knee osteoarthritis has commonly been associated with a symptom of pain resulting in an inter-limb weight-bearing asymmetry during functional tasks. Patellar tendon strap is one of the non-pharmacologic interventions to alleviate knee pain. Objectives: To investigate the immediate effect of a patellar tendon strap on weight-b...
Article
Background: Despite the popularity of core stabilization, there is limited evidence as to the relationship between performance on tests of isometric trunk muscle endurance and physical activity levels in adults. Objective: To investigate the relationship between isometric trunk muscle endurance and physical activity related energy expenditure in...

Background: Sit-to-stand movement is an essential function for participation in many activities of daily living. Although this movement is one of the most important functional tasks, there is limited research investigating strategies of sit-to-stand movement in transtibial amputees. Objectives: To examine movement strategies of the sit-to-stand...

The aim of this study was to compare the effects of static stretching, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretching and Mulligan technique on hip flexion range of motion (ROM) in subjects with bilateral hamstring tightness. A total of 40 students (mean age: 21.5±1.3 years, mean body height: 172.8±8.2 cm, mean body mass index: 21.9±3.0...

Background It is known that adolescent low back pain (LBP) is a significant public health problem and 29-71% of the adolescents suffer from LBP in a period of their lives (1). Investigations have shown that significant correlation between abnormal postural alignment and spinal pain (2,3). To prevent or reduce LBP in adolescents, more research is ne...

Objectives: To compare ultrasonography (USG) parameters of deep abdominal muscles (transversus abdominis-TrA, internal obliques-IO) between women with and without chronic neck pain (CNP). Methods: Women with CNP (n=18; meanage=37.7 years; mean-BMI=22.7 kg/m2) and asymptomatic individuals (n=18; mean-age=36.1 years; mean-BMI=21.8 kg/m2) participated...
Article
Purpose: The present study aimed to investigate the relationship between the ultrasonography parameters of transversus abdominis and neck pain manifestations in women with chronic neck pain. Materials and methods: Thirty women (mean age: 38.44 ± 9.56 years, BMI: 25.57 ± 3.32 kg/m2) with chronic neck pain were included in the study. The pain severit...
Chapter
Kinesiology is a science which allows for better understanding of complexity and perfection of the human movement. In order to achieve a correct understanding of kinesiology, it is important to be familiar with fundamentals of mechanical laws, principles of biomechanics, and the important aspects of physics and mathematics. Therefore, this chapter...
Article
BACKGROUND: Scapular muscles are crucially important not only for the movements of upper extremity and cervical spine, but also for dynamic stabilization. Several tests were suggested for assessing the scapular muscles endurance, however, no normative values were provided previously. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to establish normativ...
Article
Purpose: Our aim was to cross culturally adapt the MedRisk instrument for measuring patient satisfaction with physical therapy care for Turkish-speaking inpatients, provide information about its measurement properties, and determine the socio-demographic factors influencing satisfaction of Turkish patients. Method: This was a cross-sectional, measu...

Background/aim: This study aimed to evaluate the three-dimensional (3D) profile of pelvic posture and postural displacements of the pelvis in adolescents with and without a history of low back pain (LBP). Materials and methods: Thirty-two adolescents participated in this study. Participants were asked if they had ever suffered LBP at some point in...
Article
Background: Trunk muscle endurance exercises are commonly used for correcting the postural alterations. However, there is no study investigating the relationship between postural alignment and trunk muscle endurance in healthy young adults. Objective: The aim of this study was to examine whether the three-dimensional (3D) body posture is related...

Background: Cough is a protective mechanism providing bronchial drainage and helps to protect secretion retention in postoperative patients. Although laparoscopic bariatric surgery significantly decreases postoperative respiratory complications, there is an increase in patients with abnormal pulmonary function test results. The aim of the study was...
Article
Background Low back pain (LBP) is a significant public health problem among adolescent population. Postural alterations and decreased flexibility have been considered as possible risk factors for adolescent LBP. Thus, examination of posture and muscle flexibility is essential for determining any potential contributing factors (1–3). However, studie...

Purpose: Physiotherapists are the most directly involved health professionals to support the patient both emotionally and physically. Increased physical activity is important to cope with perceived stress. It can be helpful to know physical activity level of physiotherapists to cope perceived stress. The aim the study was to examine the relationshi...

Background and Aim: Cough is a protective mechanism providing bronchial drainage to protect secretion retention after abdominal surgeries. Although postoperative pulmonary complications are low after laparoscopic bariatric surgery (LBS), studies showed an increase in complications in patients with abnormal pulmonary function test (PFT) results. Our...
Conference Paper
Background and Aim: Adequate cough strength is necessary for effective clearance of excess bronchial secretions after abdominal surgery. Incision pain and fear of dehiscence may be an important contributor to avoidance of coughing and decreased cough strength. However, interactions of these parameters have been less studied. Thus, we examined wheth...
