The purpose of this study is to determine if changing the frequency or intensity of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) can reduce the development of tolerance to TENS treatment.
To date it is unknown how physical activity levels in adults is limited before and after lumbar spine surgery and if physical activity level is associated with disability and limitations of quality of life. The main objective is to compare physical activity preoperatively and 6 and 12 weeks postoperatively in patients undergoing lumbar spine surgery with norm data. In addition, we will study the association of changes in physical activity, disability and quality of live.
- Purpose The general purpose of this project is to assess the utility of the mCare application and MHCE (Mobile Healthcare Environment) system - a secure, mobile, smartphone app based platform - for same day surgery postoperative follow up of patients receiving peripheral nerve blocks. - Research Design Randomized open-label study, comparing the satisfaction of the two groups with the method of follow up, which is either over the phone or via a mCare application. A separate group made up of nurses and physicians will have the opportunity to take a short anonymous survey to rank their opinion on the use of the smartphone application for patient feedback.
fractures of upper limb induce much pain . A lot of modalities are available to alleviate pain. fracture hematoma block, and intravenous regional anesthesia seem to be cost effective and attractive options
This study compares the use of conventional radiotherapy technique with volumetric intensity-modulated radiotherapy (VMAT) in the treatment of painful cancer metastases. Half of the patients will receive radiotherapy using a conventional technique, while the other half will receive their treatment using a the VMAT technique.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of leukocyte- and platelet-rich fibrin (L-PRF) on impacted mandibular third molar (IMTM) extraction wound healing, patient postoperative discomfort, and incidence of alveolar osteitis (AO). Thirty patients (18 female, 12 male) who met the inclusion criteria for this split-mouth study underwent bilateral IMTM surgical extractions. Following extraction, randomization was done. One socket received L-PRF, and the other socket served as a regular blood clot control. Postoperatively, the soft tissue healing index (HI), pain according to visual analog scale (VAS), facial swelling using a horizontal and vertical guide, and incidence of AO were evaluated 1, 3, 7, and 14 days after surgery.
Patients experience discomfort from lidocaine injections. Vibrating kinetic anesthesia devices have been shown to reduce pain of injections in dentistry, pediatrics, and dermatology, though no studies of lidocaine injections in sites common to dermatologic surgery exist. We will conduct a randomized split-body study, in which healthy volunteers will rate the pain of lidocaine injections on a visual analog scale, with and without the vibrating kinetic anesthesia device being used during injection
This clinical trial studies how well Diode laser fiber type selective stimulator works in predicting pain development in patients with ovarian cancer who are receiving chemotherapy. Stimulating of the pain nerve fibers in your skin with an investigational device using laser light stimulation may help to predict whether a patient will develop painful peripheral neuropathy, correlate with the severity of neuropathy during and after chemotherapy treatment, and may help to explain the mechanisms of chemotherapy induced neuropathic pain.
Lumbar pain is one of the most common injuries being the cause of morbidity in the individual generating occupational disability with strong personal, social and economic impact. As one of the methods of treatment, Pilates is a method that has good results for the management of this dysfunction. However, it is not known exactly which approach Pilates can bring better results for this population. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to compare the effects of two types of Pilates method interventions on non-specific chronic low back pain. A blinded randomized clinical trial, will be held. 28 patients divided randomly into two groups will be assessed, the Mobilization Pilates (MP) and the Stabilization Pilates (SP). Both groups will be formed by individuals of both sexes and aged 21 to 41 years with chronic low back pain. Both groups will receive 10 sessions of Pilates Methods twice a week, with each session taking an average of 50 minutes, therefore the MP will focus on a lumbo-pelvic mobilization exercises approach and the SP will focus on lumbo-pelvic stabilization exercises approach. At the beginning and end of the 5 weeks the individuals are evaluated to verify the presence of pain and disability with VAS of pain and Oswestry Questionnaire, and also with the Functional Movement Screen. Data will be analyzed statistically.
This study aims to determine the efficacy and safety of low dose ketamine in association with IV morphine in the management of acute moderate to severe pain in emergency department. The investigators hypothesize that low dose ketamine will result in more effective pain control than morphine alone and will not be associated with an increase in adverse events.
