Werner, C M L; Ruckstuhl, T; Zingg, P; Lindenmeyer, B; Klammer, G; Gerber, C (2011). Correlation of psychomotor findings and the outcome of a physical therapy program to treat scapular dyskinesis. Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, 20(1):69-72.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: This pilot study was performed to investigate the influence of psychomotor skills on the outcome of a specific nonoperative program (scapular dyskinesis-program) to treat scapular dyskinesis.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifteen patients (group A) with positive and 11 patients (group B) with a negative outcome after physical therapy were included. To test the psychomotor skills of the patients the Motorische Leistungsserie (MLS) was used. The test results of the patients of group A were then compared with those of group B.

RESULTS: For 2 parameters, a significant correlation could be detected. However, due to the small sample size, a clear but statistically insignificant difference could be found for several other factors.

CONCLUSION: We, therefore, hypothesize that psychomotor skills testing is a potential method to predict the outcome of nonoperative treatment for scapular dyskinesis. Further investigations with a larger sample size are necessary to confirm this assumption.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
