Introduction : Over the past ten years, radial shock wave therapy usage has grown tremendously. Prescribed for chronic tendinopathy, its real benefit has yet to be demonstrated. Objective : Demonstrate radial shock wave therapy benefits in plantar fasciitis treatment. Materials and methods : Our experimentation is a study over twelve weeks divided in 2 periods: the control phase (week 0 to week 6) and treatment phase (week 6 to week 11). It includes 3 evaluations (T1, T2 and T3) respectively at 0, 6 and 11 weeks. A standard evaluation consists of one VAS pain, an algo-functional backwash survey about the ankle (modified FFI), algometer test and dynamic analysis of the foot on strength platform. The radial shock wave therapy has been performed thanks to Swiss DolorClast machine (Electro Medical Systems) Results : Statistical analysis show radial shock wave therapy induces a highly significant improvement (p<0,0001) on EVA results (50%), ankle algo-functional backwash (62.6%) and pain sensitivity threshold (49.6%). Therefore, a significant correlation can be observed during T2- T3 period between pain sensitivity threshold improvement and patients age (p=0,012). The statistical results show a time increase trend for foot-ground contact over time. It is not significant though. Conclusion : The use of radial shock wave therapy in plantar fasciitis treatment helps decrease pain and improve step. However, additional studies performed on bigger samples have to be completed to confirm these results. [less ▲]

Introduction. Low back pain (LBP) is common among athletes and can be challenging for athletic trainers and therapists. Unfortunately, little is known about symptoms associated with functional lumbar segmental instability (FLSI) in athletes with LBP. Purpose. To determine subjective and objective symptoms associated with FLSI in athletes with LBP. Materials and Methods. We included 24 male athletes (12 soccer players and 12 tennis players) with non specific LBP mean (± standard deviation) pain intensity (0-100 Visual Analogue Scale) and disability (0-24 Roland-Disability questionnaire) scores reaching respectively 35 (±20) and 4 (±3). Athletes were submitted to a standardized anamnesis (including subjective identifiers of FLSI) and a clinical assessment conducted by a manual therapist who explored objective identifiers of FLSI. Results. According to the manual therapist, 12 athletes (6 tennis and 6 soccer players) presented a FLSI. The two groups did not differ regarding pain intensity and disability (P>0.05). However, athletes with FLSI appeared significantly younger than non FLSI athletes (P<0.01). Only three subjective identifiers appeared significantly related to FLSI in soccer and tennis players with LBP: “reports frequent episodes of muscle spasms”, “reports feelings of giving way or back giving out” and “Pain increased with sudden, trivial, or mild movements”. Regarding objective identifiers of FLSI, “positive prone instability test”, “aberrant movement during active and passive trunk flexion-extension“ and “poor lumbopelvic control” were significantly related to FLSI in these athletes. Conclusions. In this preliminary study, 50% of the athletes with LBP presented a FLSI. Some subjective and objective symptoms are significantly related to FLSI in soccer and tennis players. Implications. Athletes with LSI should be targeted for retraining to restore normal movement control. [less ▲]

Relevance: LBP is common among tennis players. More than one third of professional tennis players reported LBP as reason for missing at least one tournament. As impaired lumbar motor functions have been associated with LBP, it appears particularly relevant to assess lumbopelvic movement control in tennis players. Methods: Twenty amateur tennis players (male, 22.9 ± 3.0 years) were included. Subjects were pooled into two groups: 10 players with chronic LBP (mean pain duration: 3.1 ± 2.6 years, pain severity score: 3.5/10 on a pain visual analogue scale) and 10 players without LBP. The Bent Knee Fall Out (BKFO) test was used to assess the players’ ability to control movement of lumbopelvic region. BKFO was performed in supine position and monitored by means of two pressure biofeedback units inflated to 40 mmHg and positioned under the lumbar spine of the participant. The reliability of this test has been previously assessed. Players were instructed to make an active abduction-external rotation movement of the hip (45°) without concomitant lumbopelvic movement of the pelvis and low back. Pressure modification (mmHg) was recorded, each side was assessed. Results: Tennis players with LBP had a worse lumbopelvic movement control than players without LBP both for dominant (9.0 mm Hg vs 3.4 mmHg, P<0.05) as well for the non-dominant side (9.1 mmHg vs 4.6 mmHg, P<0.05). Conclusions: Tennis players with LBP experience similar alterations of motor control as those observed in sedentary people with LBP. However, it remains unclear if these alterations are the cause of the consequence of chronic LBP. Implications: Further prospective studies should assess the cause or effect relationship and should determine whether motor control exercises are effective in tennis players with chronic LBP.

This study showed some difference in trunk and knee extensors strength between rowers and control subjects as well as between rowers and non-rowing athletes. The increased performances of extensor muscles in elite rowers appear to be probably related to the specificity of this sport. In the drive phase of rowing, rowers sequentially push with the legs and then pull with the arms and lower back, requiring both muscular strength and endurance. However, no difference was shown between groups regarding dynamic and static trunk extensor endurance. Further study is required to clarify if trunk and knee muscle strength and/or endurance are related to rowing performance. [less ▲]

Objective: The purpose of this study is to assess the relevance of a technological innovation (Mi-Scan function, Compex company) offered by the range of rehabilitative and/ or sport oriented stimulators. This analysis examines the effectiveness to induce muscle contraction and the reproductibility of this function. Method: A comparison of electrically evoked torques of the quadriceps was performed with and without the aid of this function, both at submaximal and maximal stimulation intensity. Moreover, this function was studied several times under identical conditions (reproducibility study). Results: No superior efficacy has been found when using a system including the "Mi" function over a system that did not use this feature. Additionally, our results have highlighted a poor reproducibility of measurements obtained by the "Mi"sensor. Discussion: Important doubts must be made concerning the validity and reliability of this tool. [less ▲]
