A shoe insole delivering subsensory vibratory noise improves balance and gait in healthy elderly people
Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
The objective of this study was to test whether subsensory vibratory noise applied to the sole of the foot using a novel piezoelectric vibratory insole can significantly improve sensation, enhance balance, and reduce gait variability in elderly people, as well as to determine the optimal level of vibratory noise and whether the therapeutic effect would endure and the user's sensory threshold would remain constant during the course of a day.

IOM: Chronic fatigue syndrome a 'real' disease in need of a new name and diagnostic criteria
PT in Motion
The Institute of Medicine says that not only is chronic fatigue syndrome a "real" disease, it's one that deserves a more accurate name — "systemic exertion intolerance disease" (SEID) — and a new code in the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Edition (ICD-10). The report stresses the importance of direct contact with primary care providers, but adds that "many other healthcare providers often diagnose and/or care for patients with SEID" and should be an integral part of the communications efforts. That list of providers includes physical therapists.

A free marketing technique that helped get my practice going strong
By Jarod Carter
When my PT practice was just a couple weeks old, the few patients I was seeing each week were not enough to pay the bills. I had to act fast to fill my schedule, and I did so through a variety of marketing techniques. I'm in full support of those who want to add non-PT services like personal training, yoga and Pilates to their practice, but this was not something I wanted to do early on. So if I wasn't going to hire these professionals as employees/contractors, I should at least get them to send me patients, right?

SPINAL CORD INJURY


Hope for spinal cord regeneration
Brain Blogger
Traumatic spinal cord injury is a severely disabling condition that can result in full or partial paralysis, as well as sensory and autonomic dysfunction. SCI has an estimated incidence of 12,000 new cases per year in the United States alone, caused primarily by automobile accidents, falls, violence and sports. Despite extensive research, an effective cure is yet to be defined. A combination of factors contributes to the difficulty in drawing an effective treatment to SCI. Consequently, numerous strategies for spinal cord regeneration have surfaced in the last few years.
