Background and aims: The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of a motor control training program on the lumbopelvic motor control (LMC) in elite soccer players with a history of low back pain (LBP). Methods: Twenty-four male elite soccer players (mean age of 18.3 years) filled in questionnaires related to LBP and were divided into two groups: 12 players with a history of LBP (LBP group) and 12 players without a history of LBP (no LBP group). Then, they performed five LMC tests [the Bent Knee Fall Out test (BKFO), the Knee Lift Abdominal Test (KLAT), the Sitting Knee Extension Test (SKET), the Waiter’s Bow (WB) and the test of the transversus abdominis (TrA)] which were conducted and scored (0=failed, 1=correct) by a physiotherapist, blinded to the medical history of the participants. The total LMC score (ranging from 0 to 5) was calculated by adding the score at each test. During the following 10 weeks, the no LBP group conducted a soccer training as usual while LBP group performed an additional specific core stability program (1h/week). Results: At baseline, the participants of the LBP group had a worse LMC than the no LBP group (mean LMC score of 1.1 vs 3.1, p<0.01). The between-groups difference was particularly marked for the BKFO (p<0.01), KLAT (p<0.01) and SKET (p<0.05) tests. At the end of the intervention program, the LMC score of the players with a history of LBP increased significantly (p<0.0001) and was similar to the score of the players without a history of LBP (mean LMC score of 3.2 vs 3.3, p=1.00). Conclusions: LMC can be decreased in elite active soccer players with a history of LBP. Specific core stability program is effective to improve LMC in these players. [less ▲]

Objective The aim of this controlled, randomized, and double-blind study was to determine whether Kinesiotape® placed on healthy hamstrings could influence the isokinetic performances of this muscle group and of its antagonist, the quadriceps. Methods Twelve healthy men, aged 18–30 years, were subjected to an isokinetic evaluation in 3 different conditions (without Kinesiotape®, placebo Kinesiotape® to hamstrings, facilitation Kinesiotape® to hamstrings) in randomized order. The 3 sessions assessed peak torque (N.m), work (J) and angle to peak torque (°) in concentric 60 and 240°/s for hamstrings and quadriceps, and in eccentric 30°/s for hamstrings. Results Isokinetic performances in the 3 different conditions were not significantly different (P>0.05) in particular for the hamstrings concentric and eccentric peak torques. Only the angle to peak torque for hamstrings in eccentric 30°/s was modified when comparing placebo Kinesiotape® with no Kinesiotape® condition (P<0.05). Conclusion Kinesiotape® intervention in healthy subjects’ hamstrings did not influence neither the strength of this muscular group nor the performances of its antagonist, the quadriceps. [less ▲]

Introduction: The Victorian Institute of Sports Assessment–Patellar (VISA-P), originally developed for English-speaking patients, assesses the severity of patellar tendinopathy symptoms. Although this questionnaire has already been translated into different languages, it has never been adapted for French-speaking patients, which is surprising. Indeed, French is not only spoken by most than 275 millions of people all around the world. The aim of our study was to validate a French version and verify its psychometric properties. Materials and Methods: The translation and cultural adaptation were performed according to international recommendations in six steps: initial translation, translation merging, back translation to the original language, expert committee review to test the pre-final version, and expert committee appraisal. Once the final French version (VISA-PF) was obtained, certain psychometric properties were assessed in 92 subjects were included and divided into three groups: pathological subjects (n = 28), asymptomatic subjects (n = 22) and sports-risk subjects (n = 42). Results: The different members of the expert committee agreed with the final version. The average scores of the VISA-PF obtained were 53 (± 17) for the pathological group, 99 (± 2) for the healthy group and 86 (± 14) for the sports-risk group. The test-retest reliability of the VISA-PF was excellent with an intra-class correlation coefficient of 0.99 and good internal consistency (α = 0.9). Correlations between the VISA-PF and diverging measures of the SF-36 were low and the correlation coefficient values measured between the VISA-PF scores and converged items of the SF-36 were higher. Conclusion: The VISA-PF is understandable, reliable and suitable for French-speaking patients with patellar tendinopathy. [less ▲]

Introduction : The Victorian Institute of Sports Assessment– Achilles (VISA-A) was designed to evaluate the clinical severity of Achilles tendinopathy. It has been developed in English and therefore is not adapted for French-speaking patients. Although this questionnaire has already been translated into different languages but not in French. French is spoken by most than 275 millions of people and is one of the 2 official languages of the International Olympic Committee, and one of the 6 official languages and one of the 2 working languages of the United Nation Organisation. The aim of this study was to translate this questionnaires into French and to study its reliability and validity. Methods : The questionnaire was translated into French (VISA-AF) according to the "guidelines for the process of cross-cultural adaptation of self-report measures" using six steps: translation, synthesis, back translation, expert committee review, pretesting, and appraisal of the adaptation process by the expert committee. Once the final versions obtained, several psychometric proprieties such as test-retest fidelity, internal coherence, construct validity and floor and ceiling effects were evaluated. We recruited 116 subjects who were distributed in 3 groups: pathological patients (n=31), at risk athletes (n=63), healthy people (n=22). Results : The questionnaire was approved by the expert committee after the pre-final version test. On a scale ranging from 0 (theoretical minimum) to 100 (asymptomatic subject), the average scores of the VISA-PF obtained were 59 (± 18) for the pathological group, 99 (± 1) for the healthy group and 94 (± 7) for the sports-risk group. The VISA-A-F shows excellent reliability. The VISA-AF shows low correlations with the divergent sub-scales of the SF-36 and moderate correlations with the convergent sub-scales of the SF-36. No floor and ceiling effects were detected during the evaluation of the two questionnaires. Conclusion : The French versions of the VISA-A is equivalent to its original version and is reliable and valid questionnaire for French speaking patients with Achilles tendinopathy. [less ▲]

INTRODUCTION: Jumper's knee is a frequent chronic overuse syndrome of the upper part of the patellar tendon. Platelets contain lots of growth factors which could enhance the healing process of tendons. METHODS: Twenty patients with chronic upper patellar tendinopathy were enrolled. Assessments were made before infiltration of PRP, and 6 weeks and 3 months after the infiltration, using a 10--point Visual Analogic Scale, clinical examinations with a pressure algometer, algofunctional scores (IKDC and VISA--P), functional assessments (isokinetic and optojump evaluations) and imagery (ultrasounds and MRI). The PRP was obtained with an apheresis system (COM.TEC, Fresenius). Six millilitres of PRP were injected without local anaesthetic. One week after infiltration, patients started a standardised sub--maximal eccentric reeducation. RESULTS: Pain during daily activities significantly decreased with time. During functional evaluation, it decreased as well, but without significant functional improvement. No improvements in the imagery measurements were observed. Younger patients seemed to be more susceptible to have an improvement of pain by the PRP infiltration. CONCLUSION: This study demonstrates that a local infiltration of PRP associated with a submaximal eccentric protocol can improve symptoms of chronic jumper's knee in patients non--responsive to classical conservative treatments.

Introduction: Some clinical series have evaluated the effect of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in the treatment of proximal patellar tendinopathy. Although it is possible that a single infiltrative administration may prove to be an effective treatment for this indication, most of the existing studies evaluated the effects of 2 or 3 successive infiltrations. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether 2 infiltrations of PRP proves more effective than a single treatment. Material and methods: Twenty patients suffering from chronic proximal patellar tendinopathy were enrolled into the study and split into two randomized groups (1 or 2 infiltrations of PRP, respectively). The 3-month follow-up evaluation consisted of VAS, IKDC and VISA-P scores, along with algometer, isokinetic and ultrasounds evaluations. After 1 year, subjects were contacted to define their functional evolution. Results: The concentration of the PRP used for each infiltration was similar in both groups, and contained no red or white cells. Results revealed no difference in treatment efficacy between the groups. Discussion and conclusion: The comparison between 1 or 2 infiltrations of PRP did not reveal any difference between the 2 groups at short to mid term. A second closely-timed infiltration of PRP to treat chronic proximal patellar tendinopathy is not necessary to improve the efficacy of this treatment in the short term. [less ▲]

Introduction: Infiltration of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) may be considered as a recent therapeutic option for chronic tendinopathies. The aim of this study is to evaluate the clinical status and the return to sports activities in patients with chronic upper patellar tendinopathies. Material and methods : Twenty subjects with chronic upper patellar tendinopathy benefited from 1 infiltration of PRP. The follow-up (up to 1 year) was assessed by means of a Visual Anologue Scale (VAS), the International Knee Documentation Committee (IKDC) form and the Victorian Institute of Sport Assessment (VISA-P) score. Moreover, subjects had to answer an information questionnaire concerning their life and sports activities. Results : Seventy percents of the patients reported a favourable evolution with decrease of pain, and returned to sports activities. With time, VAS dropped significantly and both IKDC and VISA-P scores improved also significantly. Conclusion : This study confirms that a local injection of PRP coupled with a program of eccentric rehabilitation for treating a chronic jumper's knee, improves pain symptoms and the functionalities of the subjects’ knee up to 1 year after injection.

Les thérapeutiques «passives» classiques (anti-inflammatoires, infiltrations de corticoïdes…) des tendinopathies, utilisées de manière relativement empirique, réduisent la douleur et l’inflammation, sans modifier fondamentalement la structure du tendon, expliquant leur vocable et caractère «passif». La rééducation excentrique a été appliquée aux tendinopathies chroniques, non seulement de par l’échec des traitements classiques, mais aussi en raison d’une meilleure compréhension physiopathologique des tendinopathies. Diverses études soulignent l’efficacité de la rééducation excentrique qui, après 20-30 séances, entraîne la guérison et surtout prévient le risque de chronicité. Les ondes de choc, modifiant la structure tendineuse, permettraient une guérison à plus long terme. [less ▲]

Objectives: The restorative properties of platelets, through the local release of growth factors, are used in various medical areas. This article reviews fundamental and clinical research relating to platelet-rich plasma applied to tendinous lesions. Materials and method: Articles in French and English, published between 1 January 2012 and 30 September 2014 dealing with PRP and tendons were searched for using the Medline and Scopus data bases. Results: Forty-seven articles were identified which addressed pre-clinical and clinical studies: 27 relating to in vitro and in vivo animal studies and 20 relating to human studies. Of these, 5 addressed lateral epicondylitis, 2 addressed rotator cuff tendinopathies, 10 dealt with patellar tendinopathies and 3 looked at Achilles tendinopathies. Conclusions: The majority of pre-clinical studies show that PRP stimulates the tendon's healing process. However, clinical series remain more controversial and level 1, controlled, randomised studies are still needed. [less ▲]

The anterior tarsal tunnel syndrome is a rare entrapment neuropathy of the deep peroneal nerve beneath the inferior extensor retinaculum of the ankle. It is unrecognized and may lead to misdiagnosis and delayed treatment. We report the case of a 77 years old patient complaining of anterior tarsal tunnel syndrome’s symptoms with neuropathic pain located at the dorsal part of the foot without any sensorimotor loss. The electroneuromyography was in favour of the motor impairment of the deep peroneal nerve. MRI exploration of the ankle showed a millimetric bony overgrowth of the upper pole of the navicular irritative to the deep peroneal nerve. Infiltration at overgrowth of the navicular provided a partial and temporary decrease in pain symptoms. Surgical nerve decompression was then considered. [less ▲]

Le cancer constitue une maladie fréquente en Belgique puisqu'un homme sur trois et une femme sur quatre sont confrontés à la maladie avant l'âge de septante-cinq ans (Fondation Registre du Cancer, 2008). La détection précoce et l'amélioration des traitements du cancer, généralement une combinaison de chirurgie, radiothérapie, chimiothérapie, hormonothérapie et thérapie ciblée, ont permis une augmentation du taux de survie. Cependant, ces traitements peuvent être à l'origine de nombreux effets secondaires, non seulement précoces, mais également tardifs, réduisant la qualité de vie. De nombreux programmes de réhabilitation après cancer sont basés sur la psychothérapie et le support social uniquement, or ceux-ci n'agissent généralement pas sur les problèmes physiques encourus par les patients tels que la fatigue, la prise de poids et la diminution des capacités fonctionnelles. C'est pourquoi nous émettons l'hypothèse qu'une revalidation physique, associée à des séances psycho-éducatives et constituant ainsi une prise en charge multidisciplinaire, permettrait d'améliorer d'autant plus la qualité de vie et le bien-être tant physique que psychologique des patients ayant été traités pour un cancer.
