This pilot study will evaluate the feasibility of pain-guided activity modification during rehabilitation for patellar tendinopathy. The information provided will be utilized to conduct a larger randomized clinical trial to determine if there is a difference in recovery from patellar tendinopathy during rehabilitation between individuals that use pain-guided activity modification and those that halt all painful activities. Recovery from patellar tendinopathy will be assessed using pain ratings, tendon-specific outcome measures, tendon structure, tendon mechanical properties, and muscle function.
There is still limited number of studies in the literature provides insufficient evidence to support the use of ESWT in the treatment of insertional Achilles tendinopathy and the contribution of a placebo effect to the shock waves was not assessed by previous study. So the investigators conducted a double-blinded randomized-controlled trial at the orthopedic out-patient clinic, Department of Orthopedics, Faculty of Medicine Ramathibodi Hospital between December 2016 and June 2018. Hypothesized that ESWT might be effective on insertional Achilles tendinopathy
The aim of this study is to compare the immediate effects of an acute bout of isometric exercise of the shoulder external rotator muscles above and below pain threshold on pain intensity, pain threshold, conditioned pain modulation and pain free force in external rotation. To evaluate the results of the exercise, the subjects will be assessed at pre-intervention, immediately post-intervention and after and 45 minutes after each experimental condition.
Tendon injuries represent a significant problem in elite athletes. The understanding of the pathophysiology of tendinopathy is very sparse, and especially the early events in tendinopathy are unknown. In this study, the investigators will investigate early changes in tendon tissue overloading and development of tendinopathy. The investigators will examine elite athletes with recently developed tendinopathy with regards to symptoms (pain, function), tendon morphology (ultrasonography, MRI), inflammation (the activity of inflammatory pathways) and vascularization (Doppler US). The investigators hypothesize a coupling between early symptoms and inflammatory activity, followed by structural changes. The investigation will indicate what symptoms and what tendon related measurements are primary for disease development ("tendinopathy blueprints") and should be regarding vital in the prevention of tendinopathy.
Biceps tendinopathy is a common cause in shoulder-pain symptoms. The major mechanism is overuse of the biceps muscles. The long-term accumulated and poor repaired trauma causes myofascial trigger points in the related muscles. We will conduct the randomized, single blind experiment to evaluate the immediate, short-term, and long-term effect of DN.
Post-market clinical follow-up needed to address existing clinical data and gaps on the existing Q-Fix™ device and meet existing MDD/MEDDEV requirements
This study will investigate the reproducibility of a clinical diagnostic classification system for groin pain between two different examiners, and will be performed with similar populations in two different countries.
The accomplishment of a treatment with Intratissue Percutaneous Electrolysis of additional form to the accomplishment of eccentric exercises and stretching program in patients with chronic lateral epicondyle tendinopathy is more effective than the accomplishment of an additional treatment with dry needling or eccentric exercises program realized of isolated form.
This study assess ocular movements in a hand laterality judgment task in a population of musculoskeletal disorders. Reaction time, error rate and visual strategy are compared between musculoskeletal disorders and healthy patients, and between the different locations of the disorder.
This is a prospective randomized controlled trial comparing two common techniques of long head of biceps tendon tenodesis in shoulder surgery. Numerous techniques of biceps tenodesis currently exist and are commonly performed. We will be comparing the tenodesis procedure using a suture anchor device versus a technique where the tendon is simply sutured to the pectoralis major tendon.
