International Journal of Exercise Science 14 (2): 1363-1374, 2021. The purpose of this study was to assess the acute arterial blood flow velocity of the lower extremity (LE) immediately after a bout of high-intensity LE cycling exercise. Twenty-eight healthy males (n= 14) and females (n= 14) aged 20.9±1.7 years participated in this study. All subje...

The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of low-intensity resistance training (LI RT) with and without blood flow restriction (BFR) on gluteus maximus strength and thickness. Forty-six healthy participants (17 men, 29 women) volunteered. Participants were randomly assigned to the experimental group (LI RT+BFR) or the control group (LI RT)...
Article
Winchester, LJ, Morris, CE, Badinger, J, Wiczynski, TL, and VanWye, WR. Blood flow restriction at high resistance loads increases the rate of muscular fatigue, but does not increase plasma markers of myotrauma or inflammation. J Strength Cond Res XX(X): 000-000, 2020-High-load resistance training and blood flow restriction (BFR) training at low loa...

The purpose of this study was to compare the standing lower extremity limb occlusion pressure (LOP) between two units. It was hypothesized that the Delfi unit, which utilizes a wider cuff (11.5 cm), would require significantly less LOP as compared to the KAASTU unit, which utilizes a narrow cuff (5 cm). Twenty-nine healthy participants (22 men, 7 w...

Attrition rates for Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programs in the United States across the fields of engineering, life sciences, social sciences, mathematics and physical sciences, and humanities range from 36 – 51%. A qualitative literature review indicates certain factors may impact the PhD student’s success in completing the program and degree. The...

Article
Background and Purpose: To describe the use of sport simulation activities as a form of implicit motor learning training with a geriatric former athlete following a stroke. Case Report: An active 76-year-old former professional male softball player presented to outpatient physical therapy with medical history of right stroke with left hemiparesis 2...
Article
Background and purpose: Knee joint biomechanics requires an understanding of lower extremity (LE) segmental interactions. In some cases, knee pain may arise as a result of altered LE biomechanics; while in other cases, knee pain may stem from other causes, such as a peripheral nerve injury. Case description: A 33-year-old woman presented via dir...
Article
Background and purpose: Qualitative analysis has its limitations as the speed of human movement often occurs more quickly than can be comprehended. Digital video allows for frame-by-frame analysis, and therefore likely more effective interventions for gait dysfunction. Although the use of digital video outside laboratory settings, just a decade ag...
Article
Full-text available
To improve muscular strength and hypertrophy the American College of Sports Medicine recommends moderate to high load resistance training. However, use of moderate to high loads are often not feasible in clinical populations. Therefore, the emergence of low load (LL) blood flow restriction (BFR) training as a rehabilitation tool for clinical popula...

Objective: The purpose of this pilot study was to investigate the effects of an audible low frequency acoustic waveform on pain and range of motion (ROM) for patients with osteoarthritis (OA). Methods: Twenty one adults with OA (7 males and 14 females with a mean age of 68.1 + 12.4) participated in the study and were recruited from local advertisem...
Article
Objective: The purpose of this study was to measure the balance changes in female collegiate soccer players over a 2-year period. Methods: Seven females from a Division I university soccer team (starting mean age, 17.71 years; SD=0.49) completed the 2-year study. Subjects were assessed on the NeuroCom Smart® Balance Master system before their fresh...
Article
Background and purpose: Elbow pain can originate from many sources yet have similar signs and symptoms, thereby presenting differential diagnostic challenges. The elbow is commonly injured, thus requiring all clinicians to possess excellent diagnostic skills. Case description: A 24-year-old woman slipped and fell on her outstretched left hand, e...
Article

Background and purpose: Screening for referral, regardless of setting, is the responsibility of all physical therapists. A serious condition that sports physical therapists may encounter is upper extremity (UE) deep venous thrombosis (DVT), which can result in the important and sometimes fatal complication of pulmonary embolism. Case description:...
Article
Purpose/Hypothesis: Four-wheel Rollator walkers (RW) are a popular assistive device. But there are no established criteria to determine who will most benefit from using a RW. Further, a lack of criteria may lead to safety issues, as the RW is less stable than other walkers. Also, it may lead to unnecessary costs, as the price of the RW is substanti...
Article
HISTORY: An 18 year old male cricket player (fast bowler) presented with longstanding symptoms of stiff calves and hamstrings, and pain in the gluteal and lower back regions. He had been treated conservatively for a lumbar stress injury (including a full rehabilitation program) however his symptoms persisted. On further enquiry he had previous prob...
Article
PURPOSE/HYPOTHESIS: Individuals with chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD) have lessened activity tolerance due to dyspnea and deconditioning. Further, related anxiety and fear often prompt a fear avoidance pattern, compounding the issue. One tool utilized to address these issues is the rollator walker (RW), a four-wheeled walker with a seat and...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Exercise prescription and training progression for competitive athletes has evolved considerably in recent decades, as strength and conditioning coaches increasingly use periodization models to inform the development and implementation of training programs for their athletes. Similarly, exercise prescription and progression is a fundame...
Article
Background: Physical therapists (PT) need to fuse many cognitive, psychomotor, and affective skills into professional practice. Students often enter Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) programs lacking appreciation of the role new scientific knowledge plays in contemporary practice, as they receive uneven exposure to this during observation and work e...
Article
Background: Dynamic warm-up (DYN) has been associated with higher performance measures when it precedes high intensity gross motor activity. In contrast, static stretching (STST) has been linked in numerous studies to decreased performance when performed immediately prior to high intensity gross motor activities. Such discrepancies suggest that the...
Article
ABSTRACT: HISTORY: 24-year-old female (pt) referred to a physical therapist (PT) by an orthopaedic physician (MD), diagnosis (DX) of left elbow sprain/strain with contusion. Pt reported lateral elbow & wrist pain after slipping on wet floor and falling on her outstretched upper extremity (UE). Pt’s UE was positioned posterior to her trunk, elbow &...

Avoid imaging in cases of uncomplicated low back pain (unless there are specific clinical indications). Use acetaminophen, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or muscle relaxants for short-term relief of acute nonspecific low back pain. Consider matching specific physical therapy options to the patient's history and exam findings.
Article
Stretching before competition has traditionally been thought to benefit performance; however, recent evidence demonstrating reduced muscle force and power immediately after stretching suggests otherwise. We hypothesized that knee joint position sense would be diminished immediately after proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretching to...

Mechanical hip pain and disease-based hip pain can have similar signs and symptoms, thereby presenting a differential diagnostic challenge for clinicians. Hip pain is a common complaint addressed by physical therapists; therefore, it would be advantageous for them to be knowledgeable about differential diagnosis for hip pain, so that they can scree...
