The effect of core stability training on dynamic balance and lower extremity performance in young, asymptomatic individuals.

Abstract Background and Purpose: Lower extremity performance and dynamic balance are an essential component of normal daily activities such as walking, running and climbing stairs. Thus, they are a key component of injury prevention and rehabilitation in sports. Training the core muscles has been hypothesized as an intervention for improving balance and lower extremity

Sex differences in the contributions of spinal atypical PKCs and downstream targets to the maintenance of nociceptive sensitization.

Abstract Background Chronic pain has been shown to depend on nociceptive sensitization in the spinal cord, and while multiple mechanisms involved in the initiation of plastic changes have been established, the molecular targets which maintain spinal nociceptive sensitization are still largely unknown. Building upon the established neurobiology underlying the maintenance of long-term potentiation in

Informing the development of an Internet-based chronic pain self-management program

AbstractBackgroundSelf-management can optimize health outcomes for individuals with chronic pain (CP), an increasing fiscal and social burden in Canada. However, self-management is rarely integrated into the regular care (team activities and medical treatment) patients receive. Health information technology offers an opportunity to provide regular monitoring and exchange of information between patient and care team.ObjectiveTo identify

Admissive evaluation and the headache diagnosis

ABSTRACTObjectives: To question and to describe the headache prevalence in a population undergone admissive evaluation. Methods: 607 individuals were undergone admissive evaluation, whose data were catalogued by the examiner neurologist. The questions "Do you have headache? Does headache interfere in your life quality?" were made to all patients, and the prevalence was compared with the

The Feasibility of a Novel Dual-Task Exercise Program Which Integrates Balance, Gaze, Mobility and Cognition in Community Dwelling Older Adults: Protocol for a Randomized Clinical Pilot Trial

Abstract Background: Mobility limitations and cognitive impairments which are common with ageing often coexist, causing a reduction in the levels of physical and mental activity and are prognostic of future adverse health events and falls. Consequently, multi-task training paradigms that simultaneously address both mobility and cognition benefit healthy ageing are important to consider in
