Background: Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic inflammatory disease that mainly affects the sacroiliac joints and the spine, resulting in decline in quality of life[1,2]. Poor QoL is significantly related to high disease activity[3]. However, there is no systematic report on which prognosis indicators are affected by disease activity in AS patients. Objectives: This study aimed to evaluate the patient-reported outcome measures and health-related quality of life (HR-QoL) in AS patients defi...

Abstract Objectives The aim of this review was to search existing literature to identify comfort interventions that can be used to assist an adult patient to undergo complex radiotherapy requiring positional stability for periods greater than 10 min. The objectives of this review were to; 1) identify comfort interventions used for clinical procedures that involve sustained inactivity similar to radiotherapy; 2) define characteristics of comfort interventions for future practice; and 3) determine...

Musculoskeletal conditions can change tissue elasticity. Knowledge of musculoskeletal elasticity could therefore aid clinical diagnosis and management. Sonoelastography is an ultrasound-based system that examines the material properties of tissues, and it may be useful in musculoskeletal practice. Therefore, it is important to establish its clinimetric properties. This study aimed to explore the intra-rater reliability and the smallest detectable changes of sonoelastography in examining musculos...

Background: There is no consensus regarding the effectiveness of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) for chronic musculoskeletal or low back pain. A review of previous trial methodology identified problems with treatment fidelity. Qualitative research with experienced TENS users identified specific contexts for TENS use, leading to individualised outcomes. There is little information available to guide the selection of Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) appropriate for TENS...

INTRODUCTION: Joint hypermobility syndrome (JHS) symptoms of widespread joint hypermobility and pain, muscle weakness and reduced muscle-tendon stiffness suggest that there may be an impact on gait parameters. Identification of gait abnormalities may inform assessment and management. The objective in the present study was to use a cross-sectional designed study to explore the impact of JHS on gait parameters. METHODS: A JHS group of 29 participants (mean age 37.57 (S.D. 13.77) years) was compare...

Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (hEDS) and hypermobility spectrum disorders (HSD) are heritable connective tissue disorders associated with pain, activity limitations and participation restrictions. A key feature is reported to be reduced stiffness and increased extensibility and elasticity of connective tissues. Yet diagnosis relies on assessment of joint range of motion, which may be influenced by other factors, and semi-quantitative assessment of forearm skin extensibility. The objective o...

INTRODUCTION: A number of psychometric properties of the Bristol Impact of Hypermobility (BIoH) questionnaire have previously been demonstrated, including strong concurrent validity and test-retest reliability. This study aimed to identify whether it can discriminate between those with and without Joint Hypermobility Syndrome (JHS). METHODS: The wording of a small number of BIoH questionnaire items was adapted to create a generic version that asked about 'general health' rather than 'hypermobili...
