Polina Sofokleous*, Asimenia Gioftsidou, Paraskevi Malliou, Anastasia Beneka, Stella Roka, George Godolias

There is limited information on lower extremities proprioception and core stability. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effectiveness of a core stability program on the lower extremities proprioception of collegiate students. In addition, the study examined the effect of program on muscles strength, joint position sense (JPS), muscles endurance and functional ability. Nineteen college-aged individuals followed a core stability program for 3 weeks, 4 times per week. Assessments were performed at the begging and the end of study.

Case Report

Incorporating Respiratory Muscle Strengthening into a Physical Therapy Program for an Adult with Pneumonia and Respiratory Failure: A Case Report

Samantha A. Brown*, PT, DPT, GCS

Short Term Physical Therapy (PT) at the inpatient sub-acute level often focuses on returning patients home at their highest functional level. Patients who have had an ICU admission and use of non-invasive mechanical ventilation (NIMV) for pneumonia and respiratory failure may benefit from incorporating respiratory muscle strengthening exercises into functional training to maximize their PT outcome. The purpose of this case study is to demonstrate the integration of respiratory strengthening exercises into the PT plan of care of an individual previously hospitalized with pneumonia and respiratory failure.

Case Report

Heterotopic Ossification: A Rare Complication in Guillain-Barré Syndrome

Elia Coppens* MD, Ammar Kassouha MD, Armin Schnider PhD, Béatrice Leemann MD

Neurogenic Heterotopic Ossification (HO) as a complication of central nervous system lesions, traumatic brain injury (TBI) or spinal cord injury (SCI) has been well documented. Only rarely has it been described in disorders of the peripheral nervous system, such as Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS). This case report presents a 63-year-old man who’s delayed diagnosis showed intermediate phase HO, 4 months after onset of GBS. The patient’s participation in therapy and activities of daily life were severely altered by pain and associated decreased range of motion of both hips.
