NCT ID: NCT05431335 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Tension-Type Headache

Exercise Treatment in Tension Type Headache

Start date: September 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Tension-type headache (TTH) is a common type of headache. Its incidence in women has been reported as 18%. It is thought to be associated with stress, contractions in peripheral muscles, and changes in pain transmission and inhibition mechanisms in the central nervous system. As a chronic pain, it can cause a decrease in the quality of life and work capacity, and significant disabilities in daily living activities and functions of the person. Exercise treatments are one of the non-pharmacological methods in the management of TTH. Exercise reduces pain by activating descending inhibitory pathways, reducing stress response, increasing relaxation and oxygenation, and thus provides healing. By this mechanism, the effects of aerobic exercise programs on pain severity, depression, and quality of life in migraine and TTH have been demonstrated. One of the underlying causes of TTH is head-forward posture, causing ischemia, increased muscle tone, and abnormal loads in the upper cervical region. Therefore, cervical region strengthening and deep cervical flexor stabilization exercises also have an effect on TTH. Although it has been shown in the literature that different types of isolated exercise are superior to control groups in TTH, there is a need for higher quality studies showing the effect of exercise. There is a lack of evidence on the feasibility and effectiveness of combined exercise programs. It is thought that additional benefits can be obtained by using exercise types in combination in order to focus on the central and peripheral mechanisms of TTH. The effects of a structured exercise program in which aerobic, strengthening, and stretching exercises are used together are intriguing. The aim of our study is to determine the effects of the structured exercise program and whether it is superior to isolated aerobic exercises. Our study will also provide evidence to the literature on the effects of aerobic exercise programs. 64 volunteer patients who were diagnosed with chronic TTH in the neurology outpatient clinic and met the inclusion criteria will be included. Participants will be included in one of the structured exercise programs and aerobic exercise programs. Both exercise programs are planned for 8 weeks, 2 days a week for 45 minutes. Participants will be evaluated with outcome scales before and after exercise programs.

NCT ID: NCT05430776 Recruiting - COVID-19 Clinical Trials

Laser Therapy on Tension-type Cephalea and Orofacial Pain in Post-covid-19 Patients

Start date: May 10, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Considering the auxiliary potential effect of photobiomodulation in controlling persistent CTT and TMD-related pain in patients who have been diagnosed with COVID-19, and are recovered from the viral infection, we intend to conduct a clinical trial comparing two modalities of therapeutic laser application: local application and transcutaneous application in the radial artery. One of the main advantages of auxiliary techniques in pain control is the decrease of the use of drugs for analgesia, avoiding side effects and tolerance caused by them, and promoting an improvement in the individual's quality of life.

NCT ID: NCT05418218 Not yet recruiting - Fibromyalgia Clinical Trials

International Headache Registry Study

Start date: June 12, 2022
Study type: Observational [Patient Registry]

In the International Headache and Vertigo Registration Study, patients aged 4-99 years with headache (primary headache and secondary headache such as migraine and tension type headache), vertigo (vertigo diseases such as vestibular migraine) and chronic pain (fibromyalgia and other diseases) were collected. The biomarkers, imaging features, right-to-left shunt of the heart (lung), genetic characteristics, treatment, and outcome (in relation to other diseases) of headache-related diseases were studied, and long-term follow-up was planned.

NCT ID: NCT05415020 Recruiting - Migraine Clinical Trials

Determining the Utility of a Behavioral Intervention in Chronic Migraine

Start date: June 7, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This proposal will involve a pilot study to evaluate the feasibility, acceptability, and outcomes of a lifestyle behavior protocol in managing chronic migraine. Additionally, the proposal will investigate biomolecules that are uniquely involved in chronic migraine patients who respond to the protocol. Successful completion of this proposal will inform the design of a future full-scale behavioral clinical trial to control chronic migraine.

NCT ID: NCT05414799 Recruiting - Neck Pain Clinical Trials

Effect of Exercises on Computer Vision Syndrome

Start date: May 11, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Computer vision syndrome characterized as a complex of eye and vision problem related with activities which increase stress for close to vision. It includes a group of visual symptoms which occur from the extended viewing of the digital screen, when the demands of the task exceed the abilities of the viewer. Computer vision syndrome is an umbrella term that envelops many eye and environment-related problem that happen when the viewing need of the task increase the visual capability of the computer user which cause inefficacy to focus appropriately on computer images. Computer vision syndrome is also known as Digital Eye Strain.

NCT ID: NCT05414708 Recruiting - PTSD Clinical Trials

Art Therapy and Emotional Well Being in Military Populations With Posttraumatic Stress Symptoms

Start date: February 1, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Art therapy is used across the Military Health System for treatment of posttraumatic symptoms, but there is limited research on how art therapy is able to restore emotional expression and regulation in service members. This research hopes to learn about the effects of art therapy on emotional expression and regulation in service members as well as the neurological systems at work. If a participant chooses to be in this study, he or she will attend ten sessions over a period of twelve weeks. The first session will be an interview and self-assessment questionnaires to collect information on a variety of symptoms, experiences, and personality traits, and an MRI scan. During the MRI scan, participants will be asked to perform a task where they will be shown a series of neutral and negative images. The middle eight sessions will be one-hour art therapy sessions with a certified art therapist. The last session will consist of the same self-assessment questionnaires and another MRI scan.

NCT ID: NCT05414513 Not yet recruiting - Chronic Headache Clinical Trials

The Turkish Fear of Pain Questionnaire

Start date: September 8, 2022
Study type: Observational

Children's chronic pain is a significant condition that affects roughly 25% of children, with approximately 3% of them requiring intense pain therapy. In the adult literature, various scales have been established to assess fear of pain. When these scales are studied, fear of pain has been shown to have a role in adult chronic pain research, but this topic has gotten less attention in pediatric chronic pain research. The Fear of Pain Questionnaire for Children (FOPQ-C) is a questionnaire that addresses this knowledge gap. The purpose of this study is to determine the validity and clinical utility of the Fear of Pain Questionnaire for Children (FOPQ-C) Scale in the Turkish community.

NCT ID: NCT05410366 Not yet recruiting - Low Back Pain Clinical Trials

Safe Harbors in Emergency Medicine, Specific Aim 3

Start date: June 15, 2022
Study type: Observational

Many patients who present to the emergency department (ED) receive a vast array of diagnostic tests, some of which might not be useful. Providers often feel obligated to order so many tests to protect themselves against the risk of being sued. The investigators believe if a standard of care providing legal protection for certain clinical conditions were agreed upon and followed, unnecessary testing would significantly decrease in the ED, which, in turn, would improve patient safety, augment the quality of care delivered, and increase patient satisfaction.
