  1. 1. Neck pain in air force pilots : on risk factors, neck motor function and an exercise intervention

    Author : Björn Äng; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : biomechanics; cervical pain; electromyography; military pilots; movement quality; muscle fatigue; muscle strength; neuromuscular; physiotherapy; range of motion;

    Abstract : Neck pain is a medical problem in modern military aviation. While neck exercises are recommended, clinical trials of neck motor function have been less investigated. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Double Obstacle Problem on Metric Spaces

    Author : Zohra Farnana; Jan Björn; Anders Björn; Juha Kinnunen; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; metric space; nonlinear; obstacle problem; p-harmonic; potential theory; regularity; stability; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK;

    Abstract : During the last decade, potential theory and p-harmonic functions have been developed in the setting of doubling metric measure spaces supporting a p-Poincar´e inequality. This theory unifies, and has applications in several areas of analysis, such as weighted Sobolev spaces, calculus on Riemannian manifolds and Carnot groups, subelliptic differential operators and potential theory on graphs.

  3. 3. Neck-specific exercise with or without a behavioural approach, or prescription of physical activity in chronic whiplash associated disorders

    Author : Maria Landén Ludvigsson; Anneli Peolsson; Åsa Dedering; Gun Johansson; Björn Äng; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Background: Although 50% of those who suffer a whiplash injury still report neck pain after one year, there is a lack of knowledge about effective treatment for chronic whiplash associated disorders (WAD). Exercise is potentially useful, but the response to exercise in chronic WAD is highly variable between individuals and factors associated with good outcomes as well as the cost-effectiveness are unknown.

    Abstract : Background: Neck pain and disability are common after whiplash injury. One year after the accident up to 50 % still have symptoms called whiplash associated disorders (WAD). Despite decades of research the cause of persistent pain and disability are largely unknown and effective treatment and diagnostic tools are lacking. READ MORE

  5. 5. Musculoskeletal disorders in Swedish military aircrew : screening and clinical examination of the cervico-thoracic region

    Author : Matthias Tegern; Ulrika Aasa; Björn Äng; Karin Harms-Ringdahl; Mari Lundberg; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Musculoskeletal disorders; Pain; Swedish Armed Forces; aircrew; pilots; physiotherapy; reliability; sjukgymnastik; Physiotherapy;

    Abstract : Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) are a common and growing occupational problem in military aircrew. Intervention studies attempting to reduce such issues have only showed limited preventive effects. Furthermore, in-depth knowledge of the clinical presentation of aircrew members with painful episodes is lacking. READ MORE
