Examination of the pelvic-hip region

This article discusses the evidence based examination of the pelvic-hip stabilisers. The role of clinical examination and investigations are discussed. Grimaldi’s paper complements previous articles on the “Kinematic Chain” concept of Butler (2003) Wainner’s “Regional Interdependance” (2007).  Enjoy the read!

CNS activity changes in similar tasks

Grip style appeared to change CNS activity in this study. So, when interpreting this, we know CNS controls movement and that changes in CNS are associated with movement disorders. But my interpretation is that this really highlights that specific movements are associated with specific areas of the CNS. Hence as clinicians we may see loss of […]

Emotion and Neural Response on MRI

Emotion appeared to change CNS activity in this study. As clinicians we frequently see changes in pain syndromes and movements patterns. We also know that movement is controlled by CNS activity. This study may help use reason why emotion may change the movements we see in clinic. Furthermore, of possible clinical importance is that the negative […]

Manual Therapy and MRI Changes

Manual therapy techniques appeared to change CNS activity in this study. PA pressures generated different changes compared to placebo pressures. It might therefore be interesting to see if complementary studies establish if these CNS changes are linked to clinical changes in the patient or if different techniques generate different CNS activity. Enjoy the read! Neural response of […]
