Abstract
Functional Movement Screening is one of the tests which allow you to find the existing risk of injury. The aim of the work was to assess the state of functional movement possibilities of female floorball players with the use of the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) test and to assess the possibility of improving the result with the use of a set of corrective exercises. The research covered a group of 50 fit young women aged 16-24, training floorball in the category of senior juniors and seniors (mean age 18.2). To evaluate the movement patterns, Functional Movement Screen (FMS) was used. The assessment with the FMS test consisted of seven functional movement tests. The average score obtained by the athletes in the FMS test before the correction was 14.6 points (SD = 1.5), after the correction 16.3 points (SD = 1.4). Female floorball players, based on the FMS test, present a good level of basic mobility with the risk classification of 25-35%. Introducing correction according to the FMS test after just 2 months improves the functional efficiency of the female floorball players.

Abstract
The objective of this study was to assess the level of functional fitness of 30 female dancers (16 jazz dancers and 14 hip-hop dancers), aged between 16 and 21 years. An important research goal was to determine whether there are any differences in the level of functional fitness between the two groups, depending on the dance style. Moreover, the study also aimed to assess the correlation between the style of dance and the results obtained for the particular components of the FMS test. The study was carried out in the Egurrola Dance Studio in Krakow in April 2018. The final result of the tests provided a picture of the overall physical fitness of the examined group of dancers, and was found to be appropriate, since the total mean score was above the limit value of an increased injury risk. No differences were found between jazz and hip-hop dancers with regard to the overall physical fitness score. At the same time, however, differences were detected in the detailed scores for the particular FMS components. The test results reflected the level of functional fitness among the dancers, and the detailed scores confirmed the differences in that level depending on the type of activity.

O. Nowotny-Czupryna, K. Czupryna, T. Ridan, J. Rottermund – Examples of functional exercises recommended in the prevention of prostural disorders in the sagittal plane in children of pre-school and early-school age. Work on habits. Fizjoterapia Polska 2018; 18(4); 14-25

Abstract

The imperfection of posture observed in children of pre-school and early-school age is a physiological condition and results from the lack of ability to stabilize the lumbar spine and adjacent body segments, as well as the imperfect deep feeling at this stage of development. As a result, children of this age have problems with maintaining a stable body system while remaining still and during various activities. To keep the body balanced, they often take a characteristic posture – with both the pelvis and shoulders inclined forward. In order for this condition to not change into the habit of an incorrect posture, it is necessary to ensure that adverse postural situations are eliminated as early as possible, which is supported by the functional exercises proposed in the study.

K. Ogrodzka, K. Leśniak, A. Bac, T. Ridan, M. Żak: Evaluation of the effectiveness of two rehabilitation programmes for the patients with the shoulder impingement syndrome. FP 2015;15(4); 42-52

Abstract

Aim. The study aimed to compare two specific programmes of rehabilitation for patients with the shoulder impingement syndrome, as well as to assess to what extent the National Health Service refunded rehabilitation scheme was able to restore the possibility of recovering the function in a shoulder joint, in comparison to the programme of rehabilitation devised and developed by the Authors.
Material and method. The assessment embraced the two groups of patients, 7 in each, all diagnosed with shoulder impingement syndrome. The first group only used the refunded treatments, whereas the second group underwent the Authors’ programme of rehabilitation specifically tailored to address the patients’ individual needs.
Results. Having completed the course of respective rehabilitation programmes, the patients from both groups were found to have increased the range of motion in their shoulder joints, as well as experience an appreciably reduced level of pain when pursuing their daily activities, and also when at rest.
Conclusion. The Authors’ rehabilitation programme proved an appreciably more effective procedure for tackling the shoulder impingement syndrome.

Abstract
Summary
The aim of this study has been to evaluate the efficacy of treatment and physical rehabilitation in patients after the traumatic meniscus tear.
The total of 14 persons have been examined. The qualifying procedure has been based on the surgery technique applied: meniscectomy – group A, and meniscus repair (by sewing) – group B. Each group consisted of 7 persons, aged 30-66.
The knee range of motion, the leg circumference and the knee stability have been assessed. The LEFS questionnaire and the VAS scale have been used in order to compare the intensity of pain.
It has been found, that the type of the arthroscopy performed has had an impact on both, the functional status and the pain sensation, and that the better results have been achieved in patients, who have had undergone the knee meniscectomy.
