Wstęp. Celem przeprowadzonych badań była ocena wpływu zabiegów krioterapii miejscowej na zakres ruchu w stawie kolanowym u pacjentów z chorobą zwyrodnieniową stawów. Dodatkowo analizowano potencjalne zmiany w dolegliwościach bólowych pacjentów. Materiał i metody. Grupa badana liczyła 50-ciu pacjentów i była jednorodna pod względem schorzenia. W badaniu wzięło udział 39 kobiet i 11 mężczyzn. Pacjenci poddani byli 10-ciu codziennym zabiegom krioterapii miejscowej na okolicę stawu kolanowego. Przed przystąpieniem do krioterapii, pacjenci zostali poddani badaniom antropometrycznym oraz wyliczono wskaźniki BMI. Został zebrany wywiad odnośnie chorób współistniejącychi zbadano dolegliwości bólowe według skali VAS. U wszystkich badanych wykonano pomiar zakresu ruchów w stawie kolanowym za pomocą goniometru. Został on wykonany przed rozpoczęciem zabiegów oraz po ich zakończeniu. Wynik. U wszystkich pacjentów, poddanych serii zabiegów można stwierdzić znaczną poprawę w zakresie ruchu zgięcia i wyprostu w stawie kolanowym. Analizując dolegliwości bólowe oceniane za pomocą skali VAS, po zakończeniu serii zabiegów wykazano znaczne zmniejszenie wartości wskazywanych przez badanych. Rozpatrując zakres ruchu zgięcia w stawie kolanowym w obu grupach, zarówno z rozpoznaniem choroby zwyrodnieniowej stawów kolanowych oraz choroby zwyrodnieniowej wielostawowej, po serii zabiegów krioterapii miejscowej ruch znacznie się poprawił, natomiast zakres ruchu wyprostu w stawie kolanowym polepszył się w grupie z rozpoznaniem choroby zwyrodnieniowej wielostawowej. Wnioski. Krioterapia miejscowa jest korzystną metodą, redukującą dolegliwości bólowe oraz wpływającą na poprawę zakresu ruchów w stawie kolanowym u pacjentów z gonartrozą.

Considering the serious nature of complications pertaining to the trauma of the glenohumeral joint, the priority is to address the underlying cause as well as symptoms. This research was conducted in order to evaluate the effectiveness of localized cryotherapy and the PNF method on the mobility of the glenohumeral joint, in patients presenting with subacromial impingement syndrome. Each group (test and control) consisted of 18 patients. Patients in the test group were subjected to treatment of local cryotherapy and PNF therapy in the treatment of the shoulder girdle for fifteen days whilst the control group were treated with local cryotherapy procedures for the duration. There is little doubt that local cryotherapy is and effective treatment for various kinds of dysfunction however when combined with other treatment methods (such as PNF) a better outcome is achieved.

Ż. Ciosek, Ł. Kopacz, K. Kot, I. Rotter, Z. Śliwiński, M. Kiljański, D. Lietz-Kijak – The influence of Kinesiology Taping method in conjunction with local cryotherapy on the range of motion and low-back pain in patients with degenerative disease of the lumbar spine. FP 2017; 17(2); 36-46
Introduction. The back pain is frequently caused by spine ligament weakness, changes associated with intervertebral joints, overload, degenerative disc disease and degeneration in the elderly. One of the most crucial results of the local cryotherapy on the surgical area is an analgesic effect. Kinesiology Taping method is based on the alignment of muscle tone on the application area. This technique contributes to increase range of motion and muscle strength.
Material and methods. The study group included 90 patients with degenerative disease of the lumbar spine. They were from Rehabilitation Clinic in Szczecin. All subjects underwent the examination of mobility of the spine and were asked to rate their pain on the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) on the first and fifteenth day of treatment. The I group was subjected to Kinesiology Taping method and local cryotherapy 15 times. We used fascia technique in accordance with the methodology. The patients from the II groups were also subjected to local cryotherapy. The III group consisted of the patients who were waiting for the treatment. They underwent the examination of mobility of the spine at the same time as the other groups.
Results. We observed significant pain reduction and significant improvement in motion of lumbar spine in the I group, which was subjected to Kinesiology Taping method in conjunction with local cryotherapy. In the group which was subjected to local cryotherapy, a slight improvement in motion of lumbar spine and in reduction in pain could be observed.
In the III group, which consisted of the patients awaiting the treatment, we observed no significant improvement in flexion or extension of lumbar spine.
Conclusions. Kinesiology Taping method in conjunction with local cryotherapy results in the improvement of lumbar spine mobility. The use of the Kinesiology Taping method together with local cryotherapy has a significant influence on decreasing the intensity of pain. The application of local cryotherapy alone has significantly lower therapeutic effects than its application together with Kinesiology Taping method.

Introduction. Dentists, due to the conditions of their work, are exposed to many loads both physical and psychological. Considering the ergonomics of work, health status of this professional group should be considered primarily in terms of diseases of the spine, especially the cervical. This applies to all items in the work, both independently, as well as in team techniques, where apart from monotypy and monotony, there is always forced posture, and large static load, that contributing to a lot of degenerative arthritis changes of the cervical spine disorders, which are the result of the above-mentioned degenerations. Material and method. The study were conducted in the Department of Propedeutics and Dental Physicodiagnostics of the Pomeranian Medical University. The study group consisted of 36 fifth-year students of dentistry at the Faculty of Medical-Dentistry, Pomeranian Medical University in Szczecin with chronic pain of the cervical spine. Group of examined persons was subjected to the treatment with Kinesiology Taping method, in which were used muscular and ligaments technique , accordance with the methodology. In the study has been used diagnostic survey method – a questionnaire. To assess the degree of feeling pain by the subjects were used a visual analogue scale VAS in the horizontal format in the range of 0-10.
Results. Considering the range of motion of the cervical spine flexion, the Kinesiology Taping method has improved in this movement, and extension range in the cervical spine improved more than the range of flexion. Taking the scope of the movement of the bend into the side, as well as the turn of the cervical spine in the test group were significantly improved, both in motion toward the right as and left. Examined in terms of assessing the level of the declared values of pain on VAS observed a significant reduction of this disease. Conclusion. Kinesiology Taping application also favorably influenced the range of motion of the cervical spine, while improving comfort work. Kinesiology Taping method applied among young dentists had a positive effect on the declared value of pain on the VAS, which transfers into a reduction. Considering the sex of patients, in the group of women has significantly improved the range of extension, while in men the range of flexion.
