Strengthening the quadriceps femoris muscle versus other knee training programs for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis.

Kus G, Yeldan I

People with knee osteoarthritis have atrophy of the muscles surrounding the knee joint. Therefore, exercise programs primarily have been focused on the strengthening of quadriceps femoris muscle (QFM). Primary aim of this systematic review was to determine which exercise increases strength of the QFM and describe the details of the...

Interferential current sensory stimulation, through the neck skin, improves airway defense and oral nutrition intake in patients with dysphagia: a double-blind randomized controlled trial.

Maeda K, Koga T, Akagi J

Neuromuscular electrical stimulation with muscle contraction, administered through the skin of the neck, improves a patient’s swallowing ability. However, the beneficial effects of transcutaneous electrical sensory stimulation (TESS), without muscle contraction, are controversial. We investigated the effect of TESS, using interferential current, in patients undergoing dysphagia rehabilitation. This double-blind, randomized...

Effectiveness of Faradic and Russian currents on plantar flexor muscle spasticity, ankle motor recovery, and functional gait in stroke patients.

Ganesh GS, Kumari R, Pattnaik M, Mohanty P, Mishra C, Kaur P, Dakshinamoorthy A

Spasticity is a major disabling symptom in patients post stroke. Though studies have demonstrated that electrical stimulation (ES) can reduce spasticity and improve passive ankle range of motion (ROM), not many studies have evaluated the effectiveness of ES on active ankle ROM. The purpose of this study was to determine...
