Arthritis - March 7, 2018
Hamstrings, knee pain and cardiorespiratory

February’s staff publications featured research on:

  • Patellofemoral knee pain. This included exploring contributing factors such as altered hip rate of force development and strength, foot mobility differences, and pelvic and hip kinematics in patellofemoral joint arthritis.
  • Hamstrings. Muscle imaging techniques were explored through functional MRI and injury prevention strengthening exercises were discussed within an evidence-based framework.
  • Cardiorespiratory issues. Articles focused on the diagnosis and management of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, assessed the reliability of one-repetition maximum performance in people with chronic heart failure and for those referred for cardiac rehab the 10 m incremental shuttle walk test was assessed for its utility.

For something different why not have a glance at the pilot study “Dance therapy for Parkinson’s disease” and for a full list of February publications see below.
