Comparison Between Type A Botulinum Toxin Injection and Corticosteroid Injection in the Treatment of Tennis Elbow

Humeral lateral epicondylitis or tennis elbow is a common painful elbow disorder. The cause of tennis elbow is the chronic overload of bone-tendon junction. High prevalence of tennis elbow has a direct impact on the workplace productivity and quality of life. Steroid injection is the very few methods proved to ...

Mobilization Techniques in Patients With Frozen Shoulder: a Randomized Multiple-Treatment Trial

We will carry out a multiple-treatment trial on two groups. The multiple-treatment trial involves the application of two or more treatments in one single-subject [Portney and Watkins, 2000; Barlow and Hersen, 1984]. It is used to compare the effects of two or more treatments. Consenting patients will be randomized by ...

Phase N/A

Impact of Platelet Rich Plasma Over Alternative Therapies in Patients With Lateral Epicondylitis

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) deserves study because it is more expensive than the other treatments. If we learn that PRP is better compared to the other treatments, it would justify the high cost and growing industry associated with the procedure. If we find out that PRP is not better compared ...

Phase

Hydrothermal Ablation in Recurrent and Chronic Symptomatic Bursitis

This is an open, exploratory, 6-months dose-tolerance and dose-response study of a single thermal ablation (Ablaflex) procedure in subjects suffering from chronic symptomatic bursitis. Possible study participants will be screened for eligibility based on defined inclusion and exclusion criteria. Eligible patients will be administered with a single 3-minute perfusion of ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Platelet Rich Plasma and Alternative Therapies for the Treatment of Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis)

"Tennis elbow" is the most common cause of lateral elbow pain, generally caused by either work or sports related repetitive strain. In this condition, a tendon along the outside of the elbow becomes inflamed leading to pain, especially with flexing and extending the elbow. Many treatments have been attempted, including ...

Phase N/A

A Central Nervous System Focused Treatment Approach for Frozen Shoulder

The aim of this study is to compare the effectiveness of a CNS-directed treatment program versus a standard medical and physiotherapy care program on outcomes in participants with Frozen Shoulder (FS). It will consist of a randomized double-blind clinical trial (both participants and evaluators). The sample will consist of subjects ...

Phase N/A

Adhesive Capsulitis: Prospective Analysis of Efficacy and Financial Impact for Use of Physical Therapy in Treatment

Objectives The purpose of this study is to identify individuals 18 or older who have diagnostic presentation of adhesive capsulitis and randomize them into two arms, distinguished by use of physical therapy and steroid injections compared with steroid injections followed by watchful waiting. This prospective study will be used to ...

Phase

Eccentric Exercise or Radiofrequent Microtenotomy as Treatment of Lateral Epicondylalgia

Of those affected by lateral epicondylalgia will 90% be free of symptoms within 8 months to 2 years with conservative treatment. In this study surgical radiofrequency microtenotomy and eccentric exercise for chronic (more than two year) lateral epicondylalgia that is unilaterally will be used as treatment. Patients is randomized to ...

Phase N/A

Treatment of Lateral Elbow Tendinopathy

The prevalence of lateral elbow tendinopathy is prevalence of 1-3%, with a peak incidence between 35-50 years of age (Green et al., 2002). The main symptoms are pain over the lateral humeral epicondyle upon palpation and pain full resisted dorsiflexion of the wrist. Ultrasonographic changes include hyper-/hypo-echoic areas and increased ...

Phase N/A

The Efficacy of Ultrasound-guided Hydrodilatation With Hyaluronic Acid for Patients With Adhesive Capsulitis

Adhesive capsulitis is a common cause of shoulder pain, and the efficacy of most interventions is limited. This study was conducted to compare the efficacy of hydrodilatation with hyaluronic acid under ultrasonographic guidance plus physical therapy (PT) with that of PT alone for treating adhesive capsulitis. Design: a prospective, single-blinded, ...
