Functional rehabilitation has become an accepted treatment strategy in many clinical settings in part due to the groundbreaking work of Dr. Vladimir Janda. His work has inspired the creation of a specifically designed treatment program, called FUNHAB®. FUNHAB® provides clinicians with a systematic progression of exercises and treatment strategies while still allowing exercises to be individualized to a patient’s specific injury. This paper examines the concepts and basis behind the development of FUNHAB®, what makes FUNHAB® unique to other therapy programs, and how to properly implement this therapy program.

This study investigated societal attitudes toward non-medical anabolic-androgenic steroid (AAS) use. One hundred and seventy-eight (n=178) health club patrons were presented two vignettes featuring an athlete or recreational weightlifter taking AAS to improve either performance or looks. After reading the vignette participants responded to 3 open-ended questions and a 10-item questionnaire about the use of AAS. A cross-tabulation analysis using Cramer’s V and Multivariate Analysis of Variance were used to examine the extent to which the independent variable of “scenario” had an effect on each of the dependent variables. Analysis revealed more harsh feelings toward the athlete using AAS for performance versus the non-athlete using AAS for looks. Significant differences were found between the vignette scenarios regarding the two different types of AAS users. Based on the results of this research it appears that individuals that take AAS for the purpose of improving their appearance are viewed less harshly than athletes taking AAS to improve sports performance. Professionals in the field need to recognize that societal pressure may not be a good deterrent against AAS use and should instead encourage scientifically based nutrition, dietary supplement and strength training programs to help their clients or patients achieve their goals.

The following is an excerpt:

This study analyzed cross-sectional data from the National Survey of Midlife Development in the United States to determine whether complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) use could be predicted by an individual’s spiritual and religious identities. Spiritual only persons were those most likely to self-report the use of energy therapies (healing touch, Reiki), alternative medical systems (acupuncture or homeopathy), and non-religious body-mind therapies. Persons who identify as spiritual and religious were most likely to use religious-types of CAM (prayer, meditation or spiritual healing) and biologically-based therapies (herbs, vitamins or special diets), but to reject energy therapies.
