  1. CONCLUSIONS: Results indicated some physical therapists' understandings of weight might lead to negative interactions with patients who are overweight. Findings suggest physical therapists require more nuanced understandings of: how patients who are overweight might feel in a physical therapy setting; the complexity of causes of weight; and possible benefits and disadvantages of introducing weight management discussions with patients. Therefore, education should encourage complex understandings of working with patients of all sizes including knowledge of weight stigma.

  2. CONCLUSIONS: Younger children with CP responded better to home-based CIT on some areas of upper-limb functions and reach-to-grasp motor control strategies than older children. PMID: 26643052 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Physical Therapy)
  3. CONCLUSIONS: Mothers engaged in coaching identified strategies which they found supported children's performance, attesting to the existing capacity of mothers in identifying and evaluating effective ways of enhancing children's performance. Findings suggest the potential of coaching as a capacity-building, context-based intervention to improve children's performance.

  4. CONCLUSIONS: Despite using the same language, the majority of the YC-PEM items needed modification to be relevant to the Singapore culture. Cultural adaptation of the YC-PEM is important because there are cultural differences in children's participation and their environments, as well as the way people understand words.

  5. CONCLUSIONS: Knowledge of parents' experiences of their health, wellbeing, and needs provide valuable information for the planning of transition for adolescents with disabilities. Help with parents' sorrow, stress, and worry in daily life might be facilitated and parental health safeguarded by a navigator who can both guide and give hands-on support. PMID: 26642865 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Physical Therapy)
  6. CONCLUSION: Our experience demonstrates that telehealth implementation in a skilled nursing facility for the purpose of physical therapy re-evaluation is a feasible alternative to in-person encounters. PMID: 26658151 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Physical Therapy)
  7. CONCLUSIONS: Findings from this study recognize that rehabilitation services are delivered by various types of health care professionals and the payment rates vary across provider specialties in New York State. Of particular interest is that while physical therapists provide the largest proportion of services their payment rates are lower than the rates for chiropractors and physicians. Future research should assess regional variations and explore inter-provider cost-effectiveness in delivering these interventions.

  8. Conclusions Off the shelf and standard AFOs have been shown to improve forefoot plantar flexion and hindfoot eversion, but not forefoot adduction. A lateral extension added to a standard AFO along the forefoot significantly improved forefoot adduction in participants with PTTD while walking. Level of Evidence Therapy, level 4. J Orthop Sports Phys Ther, Epub 11 Dec 2015. doi:10.2519/jospt.2016.5618. PMID: 26654572 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Physical Therapy)
  9. CONCLUSIONS: The results of this study show that a theory-based, highly challenging, and progressive exercise program was effective in reducing falls, improving balance, and reducing fear of falling in PD.Video abstract available for more insights from the authors (see Supplemental Digital Content 1, PMID: 26655100 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Physical Therapy)

  11. CONCLUSIONS: Exercise therapies specifically addressing balance dysfunction are an important treatment option for improving postural stability in persons with PD. Future studies should investigate sustainability of the short-term effects and establish the dose-response relationship of balance training in persons with PD.Video abstract available for additional insights from the authors (see Video, Supplemental Digital Content 1, PMID: 26655098 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Physical Therapy)
