Synopsis: 61 asymptomatic baseball players, who were chosen because they were "overhead" athletes at risk for shoulder tightness and loss of range of motion, were randomized to receive either muscle energy technique (MET) for glenohumeral joint (GHJ) horizontal abductors, MET for GHJ external rotators, or control (no intervention).This randomization was done to determine which approach would yield the most improvements with respect to GHJ range of motion. The post-intervention results... Read More »

Synopsis: This study sought to examine the efficacy of potential improvements to standard rehabilitation after ACL reconstruction.131 patients undergoing ACL reconstruction were randomized to one of three groups: standard rehabilitation, or rehabilitation augmented with neuromuscular electrical stimulation (traditional vs.garment-integrated). The neuromuscular electrical... Read More »

Synopsis: Forty patients with a temporomandibular disorder (TMD) were randomized to receive 4 weeks of either both manual therapy and home physical therapy or home physical therapy alone, to compare the short-term effectiveness between the two groups. Results after 4 weeks indicated that manual therapy combined with home physical therapy significantly lowered pain scores at rest and while chewing, and increased pain-free maximum mouth opening in comparison home physical therapy alone.

Synopsis: 50 patients with sacroiliac joint pain were randomized to receive injection treatments of either intra-articular prolotherapy (5% dextrose water) or intra-articular corticosteroid to evaluate the sustained pain relief effects of each treatment.The trial used the Numerical Rating System (NRS) and the Oswestry disability index (ODI) for pain and disability respectively. The study found... Read More »

Synopsis: 46 patients (60 heels), with intractable plantar fasciitis resistant to traditional conservative treatment, were randomized to receive a steroid injection or platelet-rich-plasma injection.The purpose of this study was to compare these two treatments at 3, 6, and 12 months following injection in terms of pain and function.The results of this study displayed significant improvements in both groups up to 12 months following injection. At both 3... Read More »

Synopsis: 131 suffering from a new episode of patellofemoral syndrome were randomized to receive either supervised exercise therapy or usual care (wait- and-see approach).This study was designed to compare these two common treatments for patellofemoral syndrome and to determine which was superior.The results from this study indicated that supervised exercise therapy produces improved functional and pain scores at 3 and 12 month follow-up when compared to usual care. Self-reported recovery did... Read More »

Synopsis: 320 patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty (THA) or total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were included in this randomized double blind clinical trial to assess the effects of different preoperative education methods on patient expectations.Patients received the usual education addressing the immediate postoperative recovery or usual education in combination with a joint specific module outlining the first 12 months of recovery. Results indicated that... Read More »

Synopsis: 21 studies were included in this systematic review and meta-analysis of manual therapy (MT) for rotator cuff tendinopathy.The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of MT on pain reduction and improvement of function in this condition.Pooled analyses suggested that MT, either alone or in combination with additional interventions, displayed significantly greater pain reduction when compared to sham or active-control groups. No pooled analysis... Read More »

Synopsis: 17 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were included in this meta-analysis in order to assess the efficacy of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) in reducing pain and enhancing function and global improvement in patients with shoulder tendinopathy.Findings indicated outcomes were improved when LLLT was used alone and as an adjunct treatment. Active shoulder abduction... Read More »
