Synopsis: Twenty-four patients with hamstring shortness were randomized to receive either a self-myofascial release program with a foam roller (n=12) or no intervention (control) (n=12).The primary outcome of this trial was to determine the effect of using a foam roller on the isokinetic hamstring-to-quadriceps strength ratio and range of motion after 8 weeks.The results of this trial showed significant improvements in the range of motion in the foam roller group at 8 weeks when compared to the control group. No significant differences... Read More »

Synopsis: Twenty healthy men were randomized to receive 6 weeks of rotator cuff physical exercise using a hybrid training system employing neuromuscular electrical nerve stimulation to resist motion (n=10) or an elastic band (n=10).Outcomes of interest include isokinetic concentric external rotator muscle strength at angular velocities of 60deg/s and 180deg/s, and isokinetic eccentric external rotator muscle strength at an angular velocity of 80deg/s, measured upon completion of the intervention.Results revealed significantly greater increase in the concentric 180deg/s and eccentric 60deg/s outcomes in the hybrid training system group vs. the elastic band...

Synopsis: Sixty patients with myofascial pain syndrome were randomized to receive repeated trapezius muscle injections (TMI, n=30) or a TMI followed by an erector spinae plane block (ESPB).The primary outcome of interest was pain measured with a visual analogue scale.In both groups, the VAS scores decreased significantly from baseline. The combined TMI... Read More »

Synopsis: Eleven randomized controlled trials evaluating either leukocyte-rich platelet-rich plasma (LR-PRP) or leukocyte-poor platelet-rich plasma (LR-PRP) compared to control injections in patients with lateral epicondylitis.The outcomes of interest were pain scores and clinical effectiveness.The LP-PRP group demonstrated no significant improvements in pain scores compared to control injections.The LR-PRP group demonstrated significantly greater reductions in pain compared to the control group at long-term follow-up.There was no difference in the proportion of patients who achieved treatment success in the LP-PRP group compared to the control group. However, patients who... Read More »
