Atotal of 150 consecutive patients with chronic supraspinatous tendinopathy were invited to participate in the study .patients were recruited from the out patient clinic of rheumatology and rehabilitation department,Mansoura university hospital a. perineural injection therapy group (subcutaneous prolotherapy) This group included 30 patients aged from 18 to 60 years Deep prolotherapy injection group The injection fluid contain 1 ml of 255 glucose and 1ml of lidocaine. The pathological area of the supraspinatous tendon was identified and graded using ultrasound pathology rating scale guided by ultrasonography (Simens Acuson p300 machine) Proper preparation with antiseptic solution of skin overlying the point of injection .
This RCT aims at investigating the effectiveness of the "Tecaretherapy" in patients with lateral elbow tendinopathy. 60 patients will be randomized into one of the following 3 groups: - "Conventional physiotherapy treatment (CPT)" (massage, eccentric exercises, stretching); - "CPT + Tecare" (idem CPT group + tecaretherapy during the eccentric exercises) - "CPT + Placebo Tecare" (idem "CPT + Tecare" group but with an inactive Tecare device) The treatment will include 18 30-minute sessions
The purpose of this project is to investigate the efficacy of Inertial Flywheel Resistance program vs Heavy slow resistance in patients with chronic patellar tendinopathy. The investigators hypothesize that Inertial Flywheel Resistance program will yield a more positive clinical outcome and function in patients with patellar tendinopathy compared to heavy slow resistance group.
The aim of this study is to determine the factors that may be associated with night pain in patients diagnosed with rotator cuff syndrome by clinical and magnetic resonance imaging.
Rotator cuff related shoulder pain (RCRSP) is the most common shoulder disorder and its chronicization leads to multiple consequences such as early retirement, absenteeism from work, decreased participation and quality of life and expensive yearly healthcare costs (128 739 687 $ according to CNESST). Even though scientific evidence has shown that prioritising physiotherapy exercises over surgery for the initial management of RCRSP is a great way to save on healthcare costs without compromising quality, it does not always result in a resolution of symptoms and patients' quality of life can still be affected thereafter: up to 30% of people with RCRSP remain symptomatic despite rehabilitation interventions. This lack of therapeutic success could be explained by a multitude of factors, but a central issue that can explain a lack of improvement is an inappropriate dosage or choice of exercises prescribed. The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of 3 non-operative methods of delivering shoulder management (2 types of exercises and an advice and education only group) on symptoms and functional limitations for people with RCRSP. Results from this project should help us further our knowledge on which non-operative treatment to promote with patients presenting with RCRSP, thus decreasing the proportion of individuals experiencing pain even after going through a rehabilitation program.
The aim of this study is to evaluate and compare the changes of heel pain, functional health and well-being after high-intensity and low-level laser therapy for plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendinopathy
This study compares the effect of a therapeutic physical exercise programme based on an individualized control of the exercise dose by monitoring the force-speed curves against the current best practice in the treatment of tendinopathies of the lower limb. Half of the participants will receive the experimental intervention, while the other half will receive the best current practice.
In early phase tendinopathy, isometric exercises are seen as ideal to provide pain relief to patients. This approach is mainly based on a paper by Rio et al (2016), where they found that isometric exercises of a certain load magnitude and time (5 repetitions of 45 second hold at 70% of maximum) gave 100% pain relief for 45 minutes in patients with patellar tendinopathy. This then helps patients to perform their more heavy load exercises during rehabilitation, which would otherwise be too painful. Unfortunately, the study of Rio et al only consisted of 6 participants, and recent papers have contradicted the findings. In Achilles tendinopathy, plantar fasciopathy and lateral elbow tendinopathy, the pain relief was not consistently present, with "responders" and "non-responders" being found in these studies. Also, a study yet to be published (poster at conference), replicating Rio et al, also found a heterogeneous response, debunking the "one size fits all" approach that seemed to work. However, in our understanding, isometric exercises do have a crucial role in early tendinopathy management, but the way the exercise is performed, in which position, what magnitude of load, time under tension, … has an important influence. The same protocol (5 repetitions of 45 second hold at 70% of maximum) might lead to big inter-individual differences. Therefore, there might be a mechanistic reason why some patients respond, and others do not. Fortunately, the P.I. of this current trial application has recently optimized an ultrasound-based method to quantify local tendon deformation during exercises. The main purpose of this trial is therefore to evaluate the local tendon deformation pattern of patients with tendinopathy during isometric exercises and evaluate whether there is an interindividual difference in pattern between "responders" and "non-responders".
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the use of NuShield in subjects requiring surgical tendon repair.
Calcific tendinopathy of the shoulder is often self-limited with a relatively benign clinical course. Therefore, first-line therapy should be conservative and focused on symptom relief. However, studies show patients with Large volume deposits (e.g. ≥1500 mm3) and Subacromial extension of the deposits respond poorly to initial treatment such as analgesic medication, glucocorticoid injection, and physical therapy. For those refractory cases, extracorporeal shock wave therapy is introduced and shows resolution of symptoms and improvement in shoulder function in approximately 70 percent of patients. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy uses acoustic waves to fragment calcific deposits. Variables of the settings include dose (low or high energy), duration (impulses), and the interval of administration. However, an optimum value for the total cumulative dose of energy that should be administered has not yet been defined. Our study thus aim to find out the dosage effect of ESWT on the calcific debris sizes, pain, daily living functions, and shoulder range of motions in the calcific tendinitis patients.
