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.

K. Bogacz, M. Woszczak, J. Szczegielniak – The assessment of effect of early post-hospital rehabilitation on the lung ventilation function in patients with cardiovascular disease. FP 2017; 17(2); 132-139

Abstract

Objective. An assumption as made that tests performed before and after a 3-week cardiovascular rehabilitation would allow the assessment of its effect on the lung ventilation function in patients post MI and CABG.
Material and methods. The analysis involved determination of mean values of all spirometric values and comparing them with expected values before and after the rehabilitation program. In order to check if mean values of both tests were significantly different, they were compared using the t Student test for paired samples, and mean increases of all indexes were calculated.
Test results. Lung function tests performed in study subjects gave results allowing precise analysis of lung ventilation function in patients post MI and CABG, and an assessment o the effect of comprehensive cardiovascular rehabilitation, including respiratory exercises, on ventilation function of those patients. t-Student test was applied for the assessment of differences with the significance level of p < 0.01. Conclusions. The program of cardovascular rehabilitation involving respiratory exercises, accounts for improved lung ventilation function in patients post MI and CABG, and should be used at each stage of rehabilitation of those patients.

The impact of technology-based therapy on activity level and endurance of children with cerebral palsy

Emilia Wysoczańska, Anna Skrzek

E. Wysoczańska, A. Skrzek – The impact of technology-based therapy on activity level and endurance of children with cerebral palsy. FP 2017; 17(2); 100-111

Abstract

Objectives. This study aims to evaluate the impact of therapies using external motion controllers, such as Kinect (i.e. virtual reality therapies) on functional fitness of children with cerebral palsy on the example of three selected therapeutic modules: Raft, Oarsman, and Gym.
Methods and materials. Fourteen children aged 8-12 years and diagnosed with cerebral palsy (CP) were invited to participate in the study. The children have undergone traditional rehabilitation therapy. Additionally, they have also been treated with virtual reality therapy for two months, as a form of supporting treatment (three tests were conducted at that time). Two months after the therapy a fourth control test was conducted.
Results and conclusion. Analysis of activity level has demonstrated that the therapy period has yielded positive results, while the two-month break has caused a decrease in the therapeutic results in comparison to the last test. Endurance evaluation conducted in the therapy period has not produced a significant result, but this might be remedied by a prolonged exposure to the given therapeutic modules. In the Raft and Gym modules, which have been designed to improve attention, activity level decreases in the course of the therapy. This is an indication that, over time, patients pay increasingly more attention to the exercises, focusing on movement precision. In the Oarsman module, in which patients practice movement that prioritizes speed, activity level increases between the first and the fourth test, along with the patients’ training intensity

Biomechaniczne aspekty czynności stawu łokciowego w reumatoidalnym zapaleniu stawów / Biomechanical aspects of elbow joint action in rheumatoid arthritis

Jolanta Rojczyk-Chmarek, Janusz Błaszczyk, Krzysztof Gieremek, Wojciech Cieśla, Jacek Polechoński

FP 2014; 14(1); 6-16

Streszczenie
Celem przedstawionej pracy jest weryfikacja prostej i obiektywnej metody oceny funkcji stawu łokciowego, metody, która u chorych z reumatoidalnym zapaleniem stawów pozwoliłaby na doraźną ocenę zaawansowania zmian chorobowych w stawie, jak też na monitorowanie postępu choroby.
Materiały i metody. Badaniami charakterystyk cyklicznych ruchów zginania i prostowania przedramienia w stawie łokciowym objęto grupę 82 osób. Stanowisko pomiarowe składało się z kontrolowanego komputerowo urządzenia do badania ruchów w stawie łokciowym (manipulandum). Urządzenie to pozwala na badanie stanu czynnościowego stawu łokciowego przy wykonywaniu cyklicznych izokinetycznych ruchów zgięcia i wyprostu. Ruch wykonywany był: 1. z minimalną szybkością, najwolniejszy jaki był możliwy do wykonania przez pacjenta, 2. z preferowaną szybkością – szybkość ruchu zależała od woli i nawyków badanego, 3. szybki – wykonywany z największą możliwą do wykonania szybkością. Badania przeprowadzono dwukrotnie – na początku i na zakończenie trzytygodniowego leczenia usprawniającego. Resultaty. Otrzymane wyniki pokazują, że charakterystyka ruchów w grupie pacjentów z RZS różniła się znacznie od normy. Różnice dotyczyły przede wszystkim obniżenia prędkości i amplitudy ruchy, a także częstotliwości i  okresu.   Stwierdzono również znaczną asymetrię faz zginania i prostowania ruchów cyklicznych w stawie łokciowym. Wnioski. Należy przypuszczać, że główną przyczyną obserwowanych zmian zarówno w stosunku do normy jak i do okresu początkowego terapii jest sztywność stawu łokciowego spowodowana reakcją bólową i zwiększonymi oporami ruchu wywołanymi zmianami patologicznymi w obrębie badanego stawu. W tym kontekście zastosowana metoda badania ruchów izokinetycznych pozwala na obiektywną ocenę patologicznych zmian kontroli motorycznej w RZS.

Abstract

Functional limitations associated with RA-induce changes within the elbow joint and result in biomechanical disturbances. Objective data on the mobility of the affected articulation would facilitate the assessment of disease severity, selection of optimal physiotherapy interventions. Materials and Methods. Our study participants performed cyclic forearm extension and flexion elbow movements with different angular velocities. Biomechanical assessment comprised of spatiotemporal properties of cyclic movements. Spatial analysis of movement included the determination of movement direction (flexion, extension) and amplitude whereas the temporal analysis included the duration of particular movement phases as well as time-frequency analysis of a movement cycle. Results. The obtained results indicate that movement parameters in patients with rheumatoid arthritis differ significantly compared to normal ranges. Movement speed and amplitude as well as frequency and duration of movement are decreased. RA patients also exhibited considerable asymmetry of cyclic flexions and extensions of the elbow joint. Conclusion. It can be concluded that a biomechanical analysis using a manipulandum apparatus is a valuable diagnostic tool allowing objective evaluation of elbow function in rheumatoid arthritis. The measurements are highly sensitive, and hence, if performed in a larger patient population, they might help develop a classification of movement dysfunction in rheumatoid arthritis of the elbow joint. The analysis might also facilitate the assessment of hand dysfunction at various stages of RA development.

Jolanta Rojczyk-Chmarek, Joanna Cieślińska-Świder, Krzysztof Gieremek, Wojciech Cieśla, Jacek Polechoński

FP 2015; 15(1); 36-47

Streszczenie
Wstęp. Celem przedstawionej pracy jest weryfikacja metody oceny funkcji stawu łokciowego, metody, która u chorych z reumatoidalnym zapaleniem stawów pozwoliłaby na monitorowanie postępu choroby i  ocenę efektywności usprawniania leczniczego i fizjoterapeutycznego.
Materiał i metody. Badaniami charakterystyk cyklicznych ruchów zginania i prostowania przedramienia w stawie łokciowym objęto grupę 82 osób. Stanowisko pomiarowe składało się z kontrolowanego komputerowo urządzenia do badania ruchów w stawie łokciowym (manipulandum). Urządzenie to pozwala na badanie stanu czynnościowego stawu łokciowego przy wykonywaniu cyklicznych izokinetycznych ruchów zgięcia i wyprostu. Ruch wykonywany był: 1. z minimalną szybkością, najwolniejszy jaki był możliwy do wykonania przez pacjenta, 2. z preferowaną szybkością – szybkość ruchu zależała od woli i nawyków badanego, 3. szybki – wykonywany z największą możliwą do wykonania szybkością. Badania przeprowadzono dwukrotnie – na początku i na zakończenie trzytygodniowego leczenia usprawniającego.
Wyniki. Otrzymane wyniki pokazują że leczenie usprawniające spowodowało poprawę kilku parametrów badanych ruchów. Zwiększeniu uległa amplituda (zakres) ruchu oraz prędkość kątowa w szczególności fazy prostowania, a także zmniejszyła się wartość współczynnik asymetrii. Nie stwierdzono natomiast wzrostu częstotliwości wykonywanych ruchów i istotnych zmian dotyczących okresu, zarówno szybkości preferowanej jak i maksymalnej.
Wnioski. Podsumowując uzyskane wyniki badań nad diagnostyczną przydatnością biomechanicznej analizy czynności stawu łokciowego przy użyciu aparatu typu manipulandum w RZS można stwierdzić że zastosowana metoda badania ruchów izokinetycznych pozwala na obiektywną ocenę patologicznych zmian w stawie oraz ocenę efektywności usprawniania leczniczego i fizjoterapeutycznego. Analiza zebranego materiału badawczego wykazała, że dla uzyskania wiarygodnych informacji o stanie funkcjonalnym pacjenta badanie powinno być wykonane w warunkach ruchów preferowanych i szybkich. Miałoby to dużą wartość zwłaszcza w doborze odpowiednich metod fizjoterapeutycznych.

Abstract

Background. The aim of the investigations was to verify the effectiveness of a method of elbow function evaluation in patients with rhematoid arthritis. The method was expected to allow monitoring of disease progression and to help assess the effects of rehabilitation interventions.
Material and Methods. Cyclic flexion-extension movements in the elbow joint were examined in 82 individuals. The measurements were carried out with a computer-controlled unit for studying elbow movements (manipulandum). The study participants performed movements 1) of minimum speed, ie., the slowest possible movement, 2) of preferred speed consistent with patient preferences and habits, and 3) of maximum speed. The measurements were carried out before and after a 3-week rehabilitation program.
Results. The obtained results indicate that the rehabilitation intervention caused improvement in several parameters of the investigated movements. Movement amplitude (range of movement),  angular velocity (especially angular velocity of elbow extension) increased, the symmetry index decreased while no changes were observed in movement cycle duration for preferred and maximum speed.
Conclusions. The results indicate that this method of isokinetic movement evaluation allows objective assessment of articular pathologies and rehabilitation/pharmacotherapy outcomes. Our investigations suggest that, in order to obtain reliable information on the patient’s functional status, the measurements should be performed during preferred and maximum speed elbow movements. Information thereby obtained might be of considerable importance for selection of appropriate physiotherapy interventions.

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.
