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.
The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of ultrasound-guided platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection versus extracorporeal shock wave therapy for management of refractory Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (GTPS).
Optional open label, roll over extension study to investigate the efficacy and safety of secukinumab treatment in Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) subtypes of Juvenile Psoriatic Arthritis (JPsA) and Enthesitis Related Arthritis (ERA).
This study will be looking at people with lateral elbow tendinopathy (elbow pain). The goal is to determine if a one-time isometric intervention will positively change the level of pain and strength as compared to baseline measurements. After determining baseline strength and pain level, an intervention consisting of several trials of isometric hand/wrist contractions will be performed by the participant. Pain and strength will again be assessed immediately after the intervention.
The purpose of this investigation is to evaluate the safety and superior effectiveness in functional improvement in patients with partial-thickness rotator cuff tears (PTRCTs) after the administration of a single injection of adipose-derived regenerative cells (ADRCs) into the partial-thickness rotator cuff tear compared to the administration of a single corticosteroid injection into the associated subacromial space.
Shoulder pain accounts for 16% of all musculoskeletal complaints in the healthy adult population. Subacromial impingement syndrome (SIS) is the most common cause of shoulder pain. Many patients with chronic pain from subacromial impingement syndrome (SIS) will fail treatment efforts and have longstanding pain. This project will evaluate the efficacy of a novel approach to treatment, percutaneous peripheral nerve stimulation, for participants with chronic shoulder pain due to subacromial impingement syndrome (SIS).
The purpose of this study is to compare acupuncture plus a prescribed home exercise program versus a prescribed home exercise program alone to determine which has better outcomes at improving pain relief and physical function in adult patients with insertional Achilles tendinopathy. The investigators want to compare a combination of two standard of care treatments (acupuncture plus a prescribed home exercise program) versus a single standard of care treatment (a prescribed home exercise program) to determine which has better outcomes with improving pain relief and physical function in patients with insertional Achilles tendinopathy. The investigators hypothesize that there will be a significant improvement in pain and functional outcomes, both acutely and over time, in the acupuncture plus a prescribed home exercise program group versus the group performing a prescribed home exercise program alone. The investigators will measure Achilles pain relief and physical function immediately prior to treatment (baseline), immediately after the initial treatment at day 1, 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 6 weeks, and 12 weeks using the Victorian Institute of Sports Assessment - Achilles Questionnaire (VISA-A). After 3 months, patients with continuing pain in the non-acupuncture arm will be given the option to crossover to the acupuncture arm of the study for an additional 12 weeks of treatment with the subject's concurrence.
Supraspinatus tendonitis is a common clinical problem that causes functional and labor disabilities. It is the most frequent cause of shoulder pain. Manual therapy is a common intervention used by physical therapist for management of supraspinatus tendonitis. Joint mobilization, stretching and strengthening exercises are commonly used techniques for management of this condition. In this study KT will be added to conventional manual therapy and its efficacy will be investigated. The study design will be Randomized Clinical Trial (RCT) that will be used to compare the effects of KT added to manual therapy for management of supraspinatus tendonitis. 38 patients will be participate in this study who will be assigned randomly (biased coin method) to experimental and control groups (19+19). The data collection will be carried out at Railway Hospital Rawalpindi. Patients with shoulder pain at rest and positive for special tests (Neer's, Empty Can, Drop Arm, Hawkin's Kennedy) will be included in this study. There is no restriction on gender and age group will be between 25 and 60 years. Patients with cervical post op, referred pain, open wounds, allergic to KT and with signs of radiculopathy will be excluded from this study. Pre and post treatment evaluation will be done using Visual Analog Scale (VAS), Shoulder Pain and Disability Index (SPADI) and goniometry. Data will be collected on 1st day, 4th day and 7th day for both groups. After data collection is completed, SPSS will be used to analyze the collected data
Laser treatment with the proper dosage has been found effective in the treatment of chronic Achilles tendinopathy, and animal research indicate that a combination of cryotherapy followed by LLLT could yield an even better result. Thus, the main purpose of this project is to test if the addition of low level laser therapy can enhance the treatment result of exercise and cryotherapy in patients with chronic Achilles tendinopathy, yielding less pain and higher function.
