Introduction: Literature is scarce concerning the effectiveness of high dose radial extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT). Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate its effectiveness on pain, function and pressure pain threshold in patients with chronicplantar fasciitis (PF). Materials and Methods: Patients with a diagnosis of chronic (pain lasting for more than 3 months) uni- or bilateral PF with a history of failed conservative treatment were included. After a 6-week control period during which no treatment occurred, a 2-week treatment period followed by a three weeks of rest (cicatrization phase) was provided. The treatment period consisted of three radial ESWT sessions (2000 impulses of 10 Hz frequency per session with an energy flux density of 0,275mJ/mm2) separated by a one-weekinterval. Patient assessments (pain intensity, foot function and pressure pain threshold (PPT) at the site of maximum local tenderness disability) were conducted at baseline, after the 6-week control phase (pre-treatment) and at the end of the cicatrization phase (post-treatment). Results: Thirty patients (19 women (63.3%)) with chronic PF and a mean age of 51.9±11 years were included in the present study. No drop-out occurred throughout the study period. No changes were observed at the pre-treatment assessment session except for pain intensity which decreased slightly but significantly (P<0.05). At the post-treatment session, highly significant (P<0.001) and clinically meaningful changes occurred for pain intensity (-34%), foot function score (-60%) and PPT (+68%). Conclusions: The present study suggests that high dose radial ESWT is a feasible and effective way to quickly and significantly decrease pain and disability in most patients with chronic PF.

This study aimed to investigate the relationship between the history of low back pain and quality of lumbopelvic motor control in soccer players. Forty-three male elite soccer players (mean age, 18.2 ± 1.4 years) filled in questionnaires related to low back pain and attended a session to assess lumbopelvic motor control by means of five tests (the bent knee fall out test, the knee lift abdominal test, the sitting knee extension test, the waiter ’ s bow and the transversus abdominis test). A physiotherapist, blinded to the medical history of the participants, scored (0 = failed, 1 = correct) the performance of the players for each of the tests resulting in a lumbopelvic motor control score ranging from 0 to 5. Forty-seven per cent of the soccer players reported a disabling low back pain episode lasting at least two consecutive days in the previous year. These players scored worse lumbopelvic motor control than players without a history of low back pain (lumbopelvic motor control score of 1.8 vs. 3.3, P < 0.01). The between-groups difference was particularly marked for the bent knee fall out test, the knee lift abdominal test and the transversus abdominis test (P < 0.01). In conclusion, most soccer players with a history of low back pain had an altered lumbopelvic motor control. Further research should examine whether lumbopelvic motor control is etiologically involved in low back pain episodes in soccer players. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Very few studies have quantified the degree of fatigue characterized by the decline in the maximal voluntary contraction (MVC) force of the trunk extensors induced by the widely used Sørensen test. OBJECTIVE: Measure the degree of fatigue of the trunk extensor muscles induced by the Sørensen test. METHODS: Eighty young healthy subjects were randomly divided into a control group (CG) and an experimental group (EG), each including 50% of the two genders. The EG performed an isometric MVC of the trunk extensors (pre-fatigue test) followed by the Sørensen test, the latter being immediately followed by another MVC (post-fatigue test). The CG performed only the preand post-fatigue tests without any exertion in between. RESULTS: The comparison of the pre- and post-fatigue tests revealed a significant (P <0.05) decrease in MVC force normalized by body mass (−13%) in the EG, whereas a small increase occurred in the CG (+2.7%, P = 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: This study shows that the Sørensen test performed until failure in a young healthy population results in a reduced ability of the trunk extensor muscles to generate maximal force, and indicates that this test is valid for the assessment of fatigue in trunk extensor muscles.

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 ▲]
