Objective: To determine the effectiveness of diaphragm biofeedback reeducation by ultrasonography in conjunction with high-intensity inspiratory muscle training versus isolated high-intensity inspiratory muscle training in athletes with lumbo-pelvic pain. Methods: A single blinded randomized clinical trial will be carried out. A total sample of 80 athletes with lumbo-pelvic pain will be recruited and randomized into 2 groups: one group will be treated by isolated high-intensity inspiratory muscle training during 8 weeks, and another group will be treated with diaphragm biofeedback reeducation by ultrasonography during 6 weeks in conjunction with high-intensity inspiratory muscle training during 8 weeks. Outcome measurements will be diaphragm muscle thickness evaluated by ultrasonography (main outcome measurement), pain intensity, pressure pain threshold, disability, quality of life and respiratory parameters by spirometry, which will be assessed before and after intervention.

We conducted a clinical trial to assess the safety and putative efficacy of an additional human rabies immune globulin (HRIG; KEDRAB) versus an older product (Comparator, HyperRAB S/D® [Grifols]) and...
To evaluate associations between salivary glands ultrasonography (SGUS) and clinical characteristics, disease activity and outcome in patients with primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS).
Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect, with the superposition of flow information as colors on a gray scale in a real-time image. This type of ultrasonography is well-suited to identifying the location of high-velocity flow (such as in a stenosis) or of mapping the extent of flow in a certain region.
Experimental animal models for human AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM. They include GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME (see NEURITIS, AUTOIMMUNE, EXPERIMENTAL); MYASTHENIA GRAVIS (see MYASTHENIA GRAVIS, AUTOIMMUNE, EXPERIMENTAL); and MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS (see ENCEPHALOMYELITIS, AUTOIMMUNE, EXPERIMENTAL).
Groups that serve as a standard for comparison in experimental studies. They are similar in relevant characteristics to the experimental group but do not receive the experimental intervention.
Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect, with velocity detection combined with range discrimination. Short bursts of ultrasound are transmitted at regular intervals and the echoes are demodulated as they return.
ARTHRITIS that is induced in experimental animals. Immunological methods and infectious agents can be used to develop experimental arthritis models. These methods include injections of stimulators of the immune response, such as an adjuvant (ADJUVANTS, IMMUNOLOGIC) or COLLAGEN.
