timely interventions to prevent or delay the progression of the chronic disease. 1 Diagnostic ultrasound is a valid assessment of resting anterior femoral articular cartilage structure that quantifies tissue thickness or cross-sectional area (CSA). 2 Although not yet validated, femoral articular

. This case presents some limitations. We did not have validated tools and instruments to quantify muscle strength 41 and thoracic kyphosis, 42 and the patient adherence to exercises was not assessed. Clinical Bottom Line The present case described a detailed evaluation and physical rehabilitation

treatment outcomes The digital inclinometer produced similar results to that of Johnson et al 13 though only subjects without pathology were included in the current study. The validation of the digital inclinometer in the current study may provide clinicians with a practical instrument for assessing

-by-breath analysis. 15 , 16 OEP has been validated to measure volumes during quiet breathing by using a method to compute the volume based on Gauss theorem. 17 Such a method, implemented in BTS Bioengineering workstations, hereinafter will be named “conventional method”. Despite this method comprises

related to widely established criterion measures of hamstring (eg, straight leg raise) and lumbar extensibility (eg, inclinometer-determined inclination angle). For example, when associated with these validated measures the S&R test has moderate mean criterion-related validity for estimating hamstring
