Abstract
The authors, based on source materials and a few studies, present the activities of Edward Madeyski for the development of physiotherapy, physical education and hygiene in Lviv in the years 1870-1906. This doctor, by profession, and a passionate promoter of gymnastics, physiotherapy, hygiene, dietetics and healthy lifestyle, founded the theoretical basics of physical education. He represented the health-and-hygiene school, was a supporter of “rational gymnastics”, published the first Polish manuals for teaching gymnastics in schools. The main aim of the article is to present E. Madeyski’s little-known activity in the field of physiotherapy which he had been practicing since 1870 in his own Orthopedic Gymnastics Center in Lviv. Therein he treated children with musculoskeletal disorders, mainly with spinal curvatures, with the help of physical factors (therapeutic gymnastics, massage, orthopedic supports). Authors also present E. Madeyski’s activities as a teacher and promoter of physical education and hygiene in Galicia at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. His work gave rise to the development of the theory of physical education, gymnastics specialists training and the activity of orthopedic and gymnastic facilities. In recognition of his merits for many years of medical, pedagogical and scientific activity in 1889, the emperor awarded the title of professor to him.

E. Puszczałowska-Lizis, P. Murdzyk, S. Jandziś, M. Kiljański – The effects of health resort treatment on hand function in female rheumatoid arthritis patients; Fizjoterapia Polska 2018; 18(1); 74-82

Abstract

Introduction. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a systemic, chronic, immune-mediated disease of connective tissue. The disease mostly affects the hand joints, leading to weaker hand grip and functional limitations, which in many cases hinders everyday functioning and makes the patients dependent on the assistance of others. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of health resort treatment on improving hand function in female RA patients in comparison with a group of female patients receiving ambulatory treatment.
Materials and methods. The study included a group of 120 women between 35 and 45 years of age suffering from RA, 60 of which were rehabilitated in the “Ziemowit” Health Resort in Rymanów-Zdrój. The other 60 female patients received ambulatory care in the Occupational Health Center in Sanok. Both pinch grip and key grip tests were performed as well as the Grind test. The analyses were conducted with the aid of the Wilcoxon test and the Pearson non-parametric chi-square test of independence.
Results. After the treatment was completed, the number of women who were capable of correctly performing the pinch and key grips and did not feel pain in the carpometacarpal joint of thumb in the Grind test increased in both groups. A statistically significant increase in the scores (in accordance with the adopted binary system) of the respective tests, which indicates an improvement in the outcome measures, was also observed.
Conclusions. The comprehensive health resort treatment and ambulatory care have similar effects on the improvement of hand function parameters in female RA patients.

S. Jandziś, E. Puszczałowska-Lizis, M. Kiljański – Healing gymnastics in activity of gymnastic units on Polish land before 1914. FP 2014; 14(1); 74-84

Abstract

The beginning of organised forms of the healing gymnastics in Poland is connected with the formation of gymnastic units. The first institutions of that kind were formed in Warsaw – Matthesa Teodor Gymnastic Plant (1831), Cracow – Ludwik Bierkowski Gymnastic School (1837), Poznań – Teofil Matecki Gymnastic Plant (1840) and in Lvov – Organopatical Plant of Teodor Bakody (1856). On the base of listed units in Warsaw, Cracow, Poznań and Lvov were formed four first centres of the development of the healing gymnastics on Polish land. Activity of gymnastic units had a significant influence into the more late development of physiotherapy and the medical rehabilitation in Poland. At first healing gymnastics based on German patterns was applied in the plants, and in consecutive years was implemented a Swedish system of the gymnastics of P. H. Ling and method of the mechanotherapy of G. Zandera. The owners of 19th-century gymnastic plants In Poland were doctors and the first specialists in the field of the treatment with the move from outside of the medical world – precursors of contemporary physiotherapists. In this period were also formed the first schools educating physiotherapists in our country.

Abstract

This article is a result of the analysis of source materials which were, among others, files of Galicia spas, information from tourist guides, advertising brochures, as well as daily and medical publications of the Galician period. The aim of the study was to present the original method of naturopathy applied by dr Apollinary Tarnavski in the years 1893-1939 in his own clinic in Hutsul-Kosovo. Both the method and its foundations are original and can be used by those interested in the problem of the evolution of physiotherapy and physical medicine.
Dr A. Tarnavski’s healing system was based on the use of outdoor activity in the form of gymnastics (especially respiratory), hiking, sports and physical work in the garden. This therapy was supplemented by water treatments based on the Kneipp method, inhalation, drinking procedures, as well as sun and air bathing. No less important factor was the medicinal vegetarian diet and even starvation. Cigarettes and alcohol were banned in the clinic, and drugs were used only in special cases. The philosophy behind dr A. Tarnawski’s methods was not only treatment, but also teaching the people to lead a healthy and hygienic lifestyle. Dr A. Tarnavski’s method was enormously popular in Poland and drew to his clinic many eminent personalities, such as artists, writers, professors, journalists and even the clergy.
Based on his experience, ideological assumptions, the knowledge gained from his trips to the national and international clinics, dr A. Tarnavski developed an original method due to which he should be perceived as the precursor of modern naturopathy, he is also the precursor in the prevention of civilization hazards and geriatric rehabilitation in Poland. Despite the passing of many years, his methods are still valid.

E. Puszczałowska-Lizis, M. Niebieszczańska, S. Jandziś, M. Kiljański – The Analysis of Potential Risks Factors for Professional Burnout Syndrome in Physiotherapists. FP 2015; 15(2); 68-80

Abstract

Aim. Burnout, defined as mental and emotional exhaustion, is characterized by the loss of energy, commitment to work and the lack of plans for  the future. The aim of the study was to analyze the potential determinants of professional burnout in the physiotherapists.
Material and methods. The study included 102 physiotherapists employed at the health-care centers in Podkarpacie Region. The research tool was a Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) adapted in Polish by Pasikowski. Basic measures of descriptive statistics were calculated. Kruskal-Wallis’s ANOVA analysis of variance was applied to evaluate differences in average numerical properties in more than two populations. In case of statistically significant differences were found in several groups, post-hoc test of multiple comparisons was performed. The differences in average numerical properties in two populations test were evaluated by means of Mann-Whitney U test.
Results. A significantly higher overall rate of burnout in the physiotherapists at the age of 35-40 years old was found  (p=0.0078), who were professionally active for over 10 years (p=0.0026), and did not take non-professional physical activity (p=0.0004). The determination of the value of the indicator of job satisfaction was significantly lower in physiotherapists not participating in postgraduate education (p=0.0388).
Conclusions. There is a need to take action aimed at emotional support of the workers and help to solve problems. Physio-therapists should be encouraged to improve systematically their skills and to promote the principle of caring for their physical fitness through physical activity  and activities not connected with their profession.

A. Lipińska, M. Lipińska-Stańczak, P. Macek, R. Szczepaniak, S. Jandziś, Z. Śliwiński: Possible applications of dynamic taping in women after the removal of lymph nodes because of breast cancer. FP 2015;15(4);16-31

Abstract
Introduction. In Poland and in the world breast cancer is the most frequent malignancy among women. Complications occurring after the applied therapy lower the quality of patients’ life. One of the many adverse effects of breast cancer treatment is lymphedema. Removal of lymph nodes and damage to lymphatic vessels make the transport of high-molecular proteins difficult, and at the same time, they have an influence on an increase in the colloid-osmotic pressure, water retention in the inter-tissue space, the loss of lymphatic vascular tone and reduction of the hydrostatic pressure. If not treated, lymphedema causes ailments in the form of recurrent inflammatory conditions of the skin, lymphatic vessels, which greatly reduces the patients’ psychophysical efficiency and promotes the development of lymphosarcoma of the upper limb on the side of mastectomy. One of the methods of lymphedema treatment is Kinesiology Taping. In Poland, the term dynamic taping is more and more frequently used. Application of this method causes that healing processes occur in the patient in a painless and natural way.
Aim. To present the possibilities of using lymphatic techniques of dynamic taping in women after mastectomy and to assess the impact of the applications on the secondary lymphedema.  The author decided to verify the main objective through the following research hypotheses:
1.Applications of dynamic taping reduce lymphedema in women after mastectomy.
2.Techniques of the Kinesiology Taping method influence the change of motion ranges in the joints of the upper limb.
Material and research methods. The study was performed in the Department of Rehabilitation of Holycross Cancer Centre in Kielce. The study group consisted of 73 patients after mastectomy diagnosed with secondary lymphedema of the upper limb. The volume of upper limbs was measured with the use of a measuring cylinder filled with water. Measurements of motion ranges in the joints of upper limbs were performed with the use of a goniometer.
Results and conclusions. Analysis of the results shows that the employed lymphatic applications reduce lymphedema, increase the range of motion in the joints of the upper limb on the operated side and promote healing processes, contributing to the improvement of physical efficiency and the quality of life.
