Objectives: To investigate the outcomes one year after multimodal rehabilitation programmes in primary care for patients with chronic pain, both as a whole and for men and women separately. A second aim was to identify predictive factors for not being on sickness absence at follow-up after one year.
Methods: A prospective longitudinal cohort study of 234 patients, 34 men and 200 women, age range ...
Objectives: To determine the psychometric properties of a questionnaire to assess fear of movement (kinesiophobia): the Tampa Scale for Kinesiophobia (TSK-NL Heart), and to investigate the prevalence of kinesiophobia in patients attending cardiac rehabilitation.
Methods: A total of 152 patients were evaluated with the TSK-NL Heart during intake and 7 days later. Internal consistency, test-retest ...
Objective: Acute geriatric care (geriatric early rehabilitative treatment) and sub-acute (inpatient) geriat-ric rehabilitation are delivered to geriatric patients in Germany after hip fracture. The aim of this study was to compare patients’ outcomes after hip fracture between 3 German federal states (Hesse, Bavaria, and Baden-Wuerttemberg) that nearly exclusively offered one of the two geriatric ...
Objective: To investigate the potential of an acute bout of transcranial magnetic stimulation to induce anabolic signalling.
Design: Experimental intervention on healthy subjects.
Subjects: Ten healthy subjects, 5 women and 5 men (mean age 32 years; standard deviation (SD) 4). Methods: Transcranial magnetic stimulation, resulting in contraction of the quadriceps muscles, was applied at a frequen ...
Objective: To determine whether nature-based rehabilitation, as an add-on to standard care, has a long-term influence on post-stroke fatigue, perceived value of everyday occupations, disability, health-related quality of life, anxiety, and depression at follow-up 8 and 14 months after randomization.
Design: Single-blinded, 2-armed, randomized controlled trial.
Methods: Stroke survivors, identif ...
Objective: To investigate prognostic factors for physical and emotional functioning following interdisciplinary multimodal pain rehabilitation, by targeting patients’ baseline characteristics and health measures.
Methods: A prospective cohort of 2,876 patients from 38 specialist clinics across Sweden, who were completing interdisciplinary multimodal pain rehabilitation programmes, was followed ...
