Pooling data from thigh-worn accelerometers across multiple studies has great potential to advance evidence on the health benefits of physical activity. This requires harmonization of information on body postures, physical activity types, volumes and time patterns across different brands of devices. The aim of this study is to compare the physical behavior estimates provided by three different brands of thigh-worn accelerometers. Twenty participants volunteered for a 7-day free-living measuremen...

Background: Accurate tools for measuring physical activity are important for monitoring patients with chronic pain. However, these tools have not been properly validated in this population. Objective: To determine the suitability of two physical activity measures for use in chronic pain populations. Design: Longitudinal observational study. Setting: Pain Management and Research Centre. Participants: Sixty-four patients presenting to the Pain Management and Research Centre with chronic pain. Meth...

Introduction: The Need for Recovery (NFR) Scale facilitates the understanding of the factors that can lead to sustainable working and employability. Short-form scales can reduce the burden on researchers and respondents. Our aim was to create and validate a short-form Danish version of the NFR Scale. Methods: Two datasets were used to conduct the exploratory and confirmatory analyses. This was done using qualitative and quantitative methods. The exploratory phase identified several short-form ve...

Purpose A multifaceted workplace intervention consisting of participatory ergonomics, physical training, and cognitive–behavioural training (CBT) has shown effectiveness for reducing low back pain (LBP). However, the mechanisms of action underlying these intervention components are not well understood.

Abstract Background Advice is widely considered an effective treatment for acute low back pain (LBP); however, details on what and how to deliver this intervention is less clear. Purpose We assessed and compared clinical trials that test advice for acute LBP with practice guidelines for their completeness of reporting and concordance on the content, method of delivery, and treatment regimen of advice interventions. Design/Setting Systematic review. Methods Advice randomized controlled trials wer...

Abstract Background Before beginning a large and complex trial it is considered good practice to run a pilot study to assess the feasibility and acceptability so that quality is maintained and resources are not wasted. Objective To assesses the feasibility and acceptability of procedures for TOPS: Trial Of Prevention Strategies for low back pain. Design Randomised controlled pilot trial. Methods This is a trial of an 8 week, physiotherapist-led group exercise and education program for preventing...

Abstract The presence of bimodal outcome distributions has been used as a justification for conducting responder analyses, in addition to, or in place of analyses of the mean between-group difference, in clinical trials and systematic reviews of interventions for pain. The aim of this study was to investigate the distribution of participants' pain outcomes for evidence of bimodal distribution. We sourced data on participant outcomes from a convenience sample of 10 trials of nonsurgical intervent...

Abstract Objective To quantify the relationship between the number of times articles are accessed on the Physiotherapy Evidence Database (PEDro) and the article characteristics. A secondary aim was to examine the relationship between accesses and the number of citations of articles. Method The study was conducted to derive prediction models for the number of accesses of articles indexed on PEDro from factors that may influence an article’s accesses. All articles available on PEDro from August 20...
