Enhancing the Physiology and Effectiveness of Whole-Body Cryotherapy Treatment for Sports Recovery by Establishing an Optimum Protocol: A Review of Recent Perspectives

Authors: Adnan Haq, William J Ribbans and Anthony W Baross

Abstract: Whilst several modalities have been adopted to promote optimum sports recovery, the beneficial effects of Whole-Body Cryotherapy (WBC) remain equivocal. Physiological and performance effects of WBC treatment covering anti-inflammatory, cardiovascular and autonomic changes as well as muscle damage marker reductions are well documented. However, evidence concerning the implications of manipulating WBC protocol factors are relatively scant and were the subject of this review.

The Role of Physiotherapy in the Rehabilitation of Stroke Patients with Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms

Authors: Sigrid Tibaek

Abstract: Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) are highly prevalent in both male and female patients after stroke, ranging up to 94%. Physiotherapy has been involved in treatment of LUTS in neurologically healthy patients for decades and, over the past few years, and mostly in research, in patients with neurological diseases.

The Effect of Non-Impact Lower Body Exercise on Individuals with Parkinson's Disease: A Case Study

Authors: Bauer J, Vincent I, Buckenmeyer P, Generali A and Lind E

Abstract: Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive neurodegenerative syndrome characterized by motor dysfunctions resulting in general physical diminishment that comes from the body's inability to synthesize and utilize dopamine to control muscle action. A 46-year-old mother of two had been experiencing motor and sensory changes for two years and was diagnosed with PD two months prior to volunteering as a participant.

Functional MRI Reveals Emotional Modulation of Pain Processing in the Human Cervical Spinal Cord and Brainstem

Authors: Theresa A McIver, Jennifer Kornelsen and Patrick W Stroman

Abstract: Prior research has demonstrated that emotional state can influence pain perception. If a noxious stimulus is coupled with a negative emotional stimulus, the perception of the noxious stimulus will be heightened by the aversive associations of the negative emotional stimulus. In contrast, pain ratings decrease with positive emotional influence.

An Investigation into the Effect of Blood Flow Restriction on Pain and Muscular Endurance in Healthy Human Participants

Authors: Gareth Jones, Vincent Burnham, Peter Francis and Mark I Johnson

Abstract: Within-subject repeated measures cross-over study comparing full BFR (200 mmHg), partial BFR (100 mmHg) and no (control) BFR during hand-grip exercises of a bulb dynamometer (60 per minute) at 30% of their one-repetition maximum of grip strength.
