Objectif Mettre au point une épreuve de "monitoring" du statut fonctionnel du sujet fibromyalgique durant une période de 24 heures. Patients et Méthodes Vingt-six patientes fibromyalgiques, diagnostiquées selon les critères du Collège Américain de Rhumatologie et 21 sujets volontaires contrôles féminins sont inclus dans cette étude. La quantification du statut fonctionnel est réalisée à partir du « Sense Wear Pro® Armband » (basé sur un système d'accélérométrie et de capteurs thermiques) placé au niveau du bras des sujets contrôles et fibromylagiques durant 24 heures. Ce dispositif, particulièrement léger et porté en l'absence de toute gêne particulière, permet, à partir d'un logiciel, de calculer divers paramètres dont la dépense énergétique totale (Kcal), le nombre de pas, le temps en position allongée, le temps de sommeil, la dépense énergétique réalisée à différents niveaux d'intensité d'activité physique (0 à 1 équivalent métabolique (MET), 2 à 3 MET, > à 3 ou 4 MET, … ). Résultats Au terme de cette épreuve originale de monitoring de statut fonctionnel durant 24 heures, nous observons une modification significative du statut fonctionnel de la population fibromyalgique en comparaison de la population contrôle, appariée en termes de paramètres biométriques. La dépense énergétique (Kcal) mesurée à une intensité comprise entre 1 et 2 MET, 3 et 4 MET ou encore à une intensité supérieure à 4 MET apparaît significativement réduite chez les patients fibromyalgiques. Par contre, aucune différence significative ne s'observe pour la dépense énergétique comprise entre 0 et 1 MET, le temps mesuré en position allongée et le temps de sommeil. Enfin, le nombre de pas accomplis sur 24 heures diffère significativement entre les 2 groupes (7776 pas chez les fibromyalgiques versus 11068 pas chez les sujets contrôles). Discussion Ces observations originales illustrent non seulement l'altération du statut fonctionnel du fibromyalgique mais aussi un certain ralentissement fonctionnel puisque aucune différence ne s'observe pour la dépense énergétique mesurée entre 0 et 1 MET alors qu'au-delà, les différences apparaissent significatives. Conclusion Cette étude propose une épreuve particulièrement sensible de monitoring du statut fonctionnel du sujet fibromyalgique. Ce test, ne sollicitant aucune participation volontaire du patient, pourrait constituer une épreuve de choix dans la quantification de statut fonctionnel du fibromyalgique, notamment dans le cadre du suivi longitudinal du patient ou encore la quantification des bénéfices éventuels apportés par diverses thérapeutiques. L'épreuve apparaît, en outre, transférable à de multiples situations pathologiques. [less ▲]

Isokinetic strength measurements of the quadriceps and hamstring that are commonly conducted using a 90 degrees range of motion (RoM) may involve some risk to specific knee patient groups. Testing these muscles at a much shorter RoM may reduce the risk but in order to render this method clinically acceptable the reproducibility of the derived test findings has to be established. Therefore the main objective of this study was to assess the reproducibility of isokinetic peak torque and normalized EMG scores of these muscles based on 90 degrees (0-90 degrees flexion, LR) and three successive short RoMs: 0-30 degrees (SR1), 30-60 degrees (SR2) and 60-90 degrees (SR3). Eight healthy subjects were tested three times with a 2 week between-session interval. All tests were performed on the dominant limb and consisted of maximal concentric and eccentric exertions. The velocities applied were 90 degrees /s for LR and 30 degrees /s for each of the SRs. Findings indicated no between-session improvement in strength. Based on the coefficient of variation the measurement error for all isokinetic strength scores remained stable throughout the testing sessions ranging 0.6-13.9% with the absolute majority of instances less than 10%. The reproducibility of the EMG scores was poorer ranging 1.5-25% and 0.5-19% for the quadriceps and hamstring, respectively. It is concluded that testing of knee muscles at short (30 degrees ) RoMs does not compromise the reproducibility of the strength or EMG scores derived from the commonly used RoM of 90 degrees . However, whereas strength was reproducible to within the accepted clinical standards, the corresponding EMG scores were characterized by a wider error band. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: To review the published information on physical training for fibromyalgia (FM) and related syndromes. METHODS: A search of Medline literature (via Ovid and PubMed) with the following keywords: FM, chronic fatigue syndrome, therapy, rehabilitation, aerobic, exercise, and cognitive behavioral therapy. The reference lists of articles were examined for additional related articles. RESULTS: Several studies investigated the benefits of graded exercise therapy for patients with FM or related syndromes. Although some systematic reviews have not established an unequivocal benefit of physical training, most authors report a benefit for patients with chronic pain or fatigue. Ideally, such a therapy should be a part of multidisciplinary program. Muscular rehabilitation is reserved for preventing the deconditioning syndrome often reported in patients and the vicious cycle of pain, avoidance and inactivity behaviors, or even kinesiophobia, deconditioning, incapacity and psychological distress. CONCLUSION: This review emphasizes the relevance of graded physical training for treating FM and related syndromes. The development of rehabilitation centers, with experts able to propose a relevant therapy to patients with chronic pain or fatigue, should help alleviate this public health problem. [less ▲]

Background: Lateral epicondylitis represents a frequent overuse injury. In spite of many conservative treatment procedures, prolonged symptoms and relapse are frequently observed. Objective: To compare the outcome of patients performing an isokinetic eccentric training with that of age-, gender-, activity-matched patients receiving a non-strengthening classical rehabilitation. Methods: Ninety-two patients with unilateral chronic lateral epicondylar tendinopathy (mean duration of symptoms 8 +/- 3 months) were assigned either to a control group (n = 46) or to an eccentrically trained group (n = 46). The control group underwent a passive standardised rehabilitation programme that excluded strengthening exercises. In addition to this programme, the trained group also performed eccentric exercises based on the repetitive lengthening of the active musculo-tendinous unit. The latter exercises started with submaximal contraction intensity and slow speed movement. Modalities were progressively intensified (increase in intensity contraction and speed movement) over a long priod of treatment. Programme effectiveness was assessed through pain score evaluation, a disability questionnaire, muscle strength measurement and ultrasonographic examination. Results: Compared to the non-strengthening control group, the following observations were made in the eccentrically trained group: (1) a significantly more marked reduction of pain intensity, mainly after one month of treatment; (2) an absence of strength deficit on the involved side through bilateral comparison for the forearm supinator and wrist extensor muscles; (3) an improvement of the tendon image as demonstrated by decreasing thickness and a recovered homogenous tendon structure; and (4) a more marked improvement in disability status during occupational, spare time and sports activities. Conclusion: These results highlight the relevance of implementing isokinetic adapted eccentric training in the management of chronic lateral epicondylar tendinopathy. [less ▲]

Published data related to javelin throwers remain poorly documented. The objectives of this study were therefore to compare isokinetic strength profile of the shoulder rotator muscles between javelin throwers and sedentary persons and to correlate isokinetic data with different field performance parameters. Eleven male javelin throwers and ten sedentary subjects participated in the study. Shoulder internal (IRs) and external rotators (ERs) were isokinetically assessed at 60, 240 and 400 degrees/s in concentric and 60 degrees/s in eccentric exertions. Subjects also performed throwing tests successively using a javelin and a ball (both of 800 g mass). Side to side comparison in the throwers group revealed a dominance effect in the concentric mode for the IRs at all speeds, and for the ERs at 240 degrees/s. Sedentary subjects showed a dominance effect for the IRs at 60 degrees/s and 240 degrees/s. Simple isokinetic concentric-concentric ratios and mixed velocity DCRs (eccentric60/concentric240) of the dominant shoulder were significantly lower in comparison to the non-dominant side values, in the throwers population. Only the simple ratio at 400 degrees/s and the mixed ratio were significantly lower in the sedentary subjects (dominant versus non dominant side). With respect to the dominant shoulder, no significant difference was noted between the groups the peak torque was bodyweight normalized. However, throwers showed a significant reduction of the DCR when compared to the control group. In addition, throwers exhibited moderate to strong correlations (0.61 <= r <= 0.89) between IRs and ERs strength and either the javelin throw test or the personal throwing record. For the sedentary subjects the javelin throw test was correlated only with the IRs concentric strength at 240 degrees/s. In conclusion, javelin throwers showed a significantly reduced mixed ratio in comparison with a control group, even though body weight normalized peak torques did not differ between both populations. Significant correlation was established between rotator peak-torques and javelin throw test among the thrower athletes. Although training program in thrower athletes classically focuses on IRs strengthening, our findings strongly suggest the need for ERs performance improvement. [less ▲]
