  • Spinal posture changes using dynamic rasterstereography during the modified Matthiass test discriminate between postural weak and strong healthy children (10-14 years): a pilot study. [Journal Article]
  • EJEur J Pediatr 2018 Jun 23
  • Albertsen IM, Brockmann B, … Babin K
  • CONCLUSIONS: This pilot study established preliminary normative data on spinal posture changes during the Matthiass test (high performers) and provided corresponding cutoff values for postural weakness (low performers). These results could provide a basis for future longitudinal and interventional studies targeting long-term consequences of childhood postural weakness and the prevention of back pain. What is Known: • The prevalence of postural insufficiencies in children is high. • No consensus exists about the postural assessment in children. • A common clinical test to identify postural insufficiency is the Matthiass test yet criticized for its subjective assessment. What is New: • This pilot study objectified the modified Matthiass test by rasterstereography and statistically identified two groups of healthy children with different postural performance levels. • It established preliminary normative data on spinal posture changes and provided corresponding cutoff values for postural weakness.
  • Early Return to Work has Benefits for Relief of Back Pain and Functional Recovery after Controlling for Multiple Confounds. [Journal Article]
  • JOJ Occup Environ Med 2018 Jun 21
  • Shaw WS, Nelson CC, … Peters SE
  • CONCLUSIONS: An early RTW improves acute LBP and functional recovery, and alternate confounding explanations only partially eclipse this therapeutic effect.This is an open access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivatives License 4.0 (CCBY-NC-ND), where it is permissible to download and share the work provided it is properly cited.
