Using the Science of Habits to Promote Healthy Behaviors Across Practice Settings

Published by <p>Chronic diseases are on the rise, and occupational therapists can play a crucial role in addressing the primary risk factor for developing chronic diseases, personal behaviors. These personal behaviors, otherwise known as performance patterns, include habits, routines, rituals, and roles. Performance patterns can either support or hinder occupational performance and play a significant role in […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

Development and Results of an Implementation Plan for High-Intensity Gait Training (2021)

Published by <p>It is consistently challenging in rehabilitation practice for current evidence to be implemented in clinical settings. Approximately two-thirds of clinicians aware of and in agreement with current clinical practice guidelines do not appropriately change their practice patterns and implement current recommendations. This article discusses the knowledge to action (KTA) framework and assesses two clinics in […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

Rehabilitation Exercises for Athletes With Biceps Disorders and SLAP Lesions a Continuum of Exercises With Increasing Loads on the Biceps (2014)

Published by <p>The authors of the presently examined study sought to determine which exercises placed the most tension on the biceps brachii (BB) and other shoulder muscles to better inform rehabilitation for those with long head biceps and/ or superior labral pathology. The EMG activity of the biceps and other shoulder muscles was recorded with surface electromyography […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

Gluteus Maximus Activation During Common Strength and Hypertrophy Exercises: A Systematic Review (2020)

Published by <p>The authors of the presently examined study sought to determine which exercises were most effective for increasing the activation of the gluteus maximus (GMax). Exercises were defined as low level (0-20%), moderate level (21 -40%), high level (41-60%) and very high level (>60%) for the purpose of the systematic review. A systematic review was conducted […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

Does Exercise Increase Vestibular and Ocular Motor Symptom Detection After Sport-Related Concussion? (2021)

Published by <p>The Vestibular/Ocular Motor Screening (VOMS) is an outcome measure commonly used for individuals after concussion. The VOMS uses eye movement and body movement to detect symptoms related to dizziness, fogginess, headache, and nausea. Normally the test is performed at rest for a patient after concussion. The researchers in this article suggested that because many individuals […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

Abdominal Muscle Activation: An EMG Study of the Sahrmann Five-Level Core Stability Test (2020)

Published by <p>Researches from Malaysia selected twenty two asymptomatic males in their twenties to participate in the study. The researchers selected only individuals who showed no signs of acute low back pain and had an average waist circumference. Subjects were hooked up to wireless EMG electrodes on one the right side of their body. One electrode was […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

Effects of Aerobic and Resistance Exercise in Older Adults with Rheumatoid Arthritis: A Randomized Controlled Trial (2018)

Published by <p>A total of 1028 subjects were assessed for eligibility in the trial. Screening included a phone interview where participants were excluded if they didn’t meet inclusion criteria or met exclusion criteria, such as disease preventing moderate intensity exercise. Subjects who met the inclusion criteria had RA, were aged 65 years or older, had the disease […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

Proximal, Distal, and Contralateral Effects of Blood Flow Restriction Training on the Lower Extremities: A Randomized Controlled Trial (2017)

Published by <p>The authors of the presently examined study sought to determine if BFRT impacts muscles above the cuff (instead of just below) and if it resulted in muscle growth in the limb contralateral to the cuff. Participants were healthy subjects aged 20 to 40 years old. All were recreational level athletes who were healthy; they were […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

Velocity Loss as a Critical Variable Determining the Adaptations to Strength Training (2020)

Published by <p>There are many ways to monitor the intensity of a training set such as subjective level of effort or percentage of 1 repetition maximum (1RM). Monitoring movement speed during resistance training is a relatively new way to monitor exercise intensity and to theoretically maximize adaptation by stopping the set once the appropriate level of fatigue […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>
