Clinical Pilates in Practice: FAI Morphology & Adolescent Spine Patients (August 2022)

This study compared spinopelvic parameters in asymptomatic scoliosis and asymptomatic patients with radiographic evidence of femoroacetabular impingement.

KEY POINTS: FAI MORPHOLOGY & ADOLESCENT SPINES

  • There is a significant association between between spinal deformity and the presence of femoroacetabular impingement morphology. 

There was no relationship between femoroacetabular impingement morphology and spinopelvic parameters.

  • Abnormal morphology or biomechanics in the pelvis or spine inherently affect each other by way of the lumbosacral junction.
  • Changes in spinal alignment alter hip biomechanics and may also predispose an...

Age-Related Reduction in Motor Adaptation

Wolpe N, Ingram J, Tsvetanov K, et al. (2020). Age-related reduction in motor adaptation: brain structural correlates and the role of explicit memory. Neurobiology of Aging 90: 13-23.

The authors of this study examined the differences in the brain structure and cognition underlying motor adaptation in a population-based cohort. Results support the hypothesis that sensorimotor adaptation is a composite of multiple learning strategies, which are differentially affected by age, and the authors conclude that "that across the lifespan, motor adaptation declines with age as a result of the deteriorating explicit learning system".
