Effect of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) on delayed onset muscle soreness following eccentric exercises for elbow

Background: Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is usually experienced upon application of exercises which involve repetitive eccentric contractions. DOMS increases during the first 24- 48 hours, causing pain and reducing the range of motion of the affected region. Numerous therapeutic

Remodelling the protocol of lower limb constraint-induced movement therapy: a pilot randomized controlled trial

During constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT), the tasks practiced have been traditionally measured using hours. Recent studies have indicated that it is equally effective and easier when the number of repetitions is used for this purpose. Aim: The aim of this

Number of repetitions versus duration in hours as dose measures of task practice during constraint-induced movement therapy: A pilot randomized controlled trial

Background: Constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) is used in rehabilitation of the upper limbs after stroke. However, its protocol, especially the issue of doses, seems not clear as duration of task practice in hours is used as a measure of dose.

Effect of different body positioning on lung function variables among patients with bronchial asthma

Background: Bronchial asthma is often characterized by a significant reduction in lung function variables. Different postures correlate with patients’ lung functions. The assessment of the lung function in different positions among asthmatic individuals might prove useful. Aim of the Study:

Influence of the pelvis position and ischial support in the seated position on the column curvatures

Background: An adequate seated position may relieve and prevent many of cervical or lumbar pains. The long lasting seated positions are likely to result in non-physiological ranges of motion, which can be considered a risk factor for lumbar and cervical
