Synopsis: 100 patients undergoing rotator cuff repair were randomized to complete a rehabilitation program with 4 or 8 weeks of immobilization after surgery.The purpose of this study was to compare retear rates and short-term clinical outcomes between treatment groups. While significantly more... Read More »

Synopsis: Fourteen studies (12 RCTs, 2 non-RCTs) were included in this systematic review and meta-analysis examining the effect of augmented feedback training during jump landing training on bio-mechanical parameters associated with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury.Data was analyzed at two different time-points: immediately post-test and delayed post-test (at least 24 hours after last training session).Results revealed significantly favourable improvements in peak knee and hip flexion angle and peak vertical ground reaction force in the augmented feedback group compared to the control group.The significant improvement in peak knee flexion angle and peak vertical ground reaction force was sustained in the delayed post-test meta-analyses. No significant differences... Read More »

Synopsis: 1184 Computer workers from 7 Dutch organizations partook a health questionnaire were randomized to two groups, one receiving the feedback on their scores and a preventive advice and the other group continuing with the usual care. The effectiveness of the RSI QuickScan intervention program was found to be small and limited to a decrease in some risk factors exposures only, with no difference in the prevalence of symptoms or sick leave between the groups.

Synopsis: 76 patients diagnosed with adhesive capsulitis, having predominantly 1 shoulder pain for >3 months in the last 2 years, were randomized to undergo hydrodilatation with corticosteroid injection or just corticosteroid intra-articular injection.This study aimed to compare the clinical results between techniques.At 6 weeks, no major significant between-group differences in most of the outcome measures were recorded. There was a... Read More »

Synopsis: 1319 patients with open or closed tibial shaft fractures were included in this trial to compare the effects of reamed and unreamed intramedullary nailing approaches (Study to Prospectively Evaluate Reamed Intramedullary Nails in Patients with Tibial Fractures (SPRINT)).Patients were randomized to treatment with either reamed or unreamed intramedullary nails.The results at the 12 month follow up period indicated that fewer patients with closed fractures, treated with reamed intramedullary nailing, experienced the primary composite outcome (bone grafting, implant exchange or dynamization in patients with a fracture gap greater <1cm).However, this significant result was due to differences in autodynamization. In patients with... Read More »

Synopsis: 200 patients with shoulder musculoskeletal pain were randomly assigned to either experimental Group I (n=100), which received interferential laser, or control Group II (n=100), which received conventional laser therapy.A laser was applied in contact mode through ten sessions, on 5 shoulder points (7 Joules/point) per session. Outcomes from Visual... Read More »

Synopsis: In this systematic review, 18 studies examining the preoperative effects of exercise-based interventions on pain and physical function of patients waiting to undergo hip or knee replacement surgery were evaluated. Following comparisons of groups who participated in exercise and those who did not, results indicated that exercise alleviated pain and improved physical function for patients waiting to undergo hip replacement, but not knee replacement surgery.

Synopsis: 80 patients suffering from subacromial syndrome were randomized to determine the efficacy of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) as an additive therapeutic measure to physical therapy.Patients were allocated to receive a 10-session, 2-week physical exercise program combined with either LLLT or sham-LLLT treatment. The results demonstrated... Read More »

Synopsis: 61 patients with shoulder impingement were randomized to complete 3 months of either high-dosage (HD) or low-dosage (LD) medical exercise therapy (including both aerobic and shoulder-specific exercise) in order to determine what impact they had on shoulder pain and function. Results collected over 15 months indicated that patients who took part in the HD medical exercise therapy programme experienced significantly greater improvement in shoulder pain and function compared to those who completed the LD medical exercise therapy programme.

Synopsis: 455 patients with chronic low back pain were enrolled and randomized in the OSTEOPATHIC Trial to determine the effect of osteopathic manual treatment (OMT) compared to sham-OMT.The purpose of this analysis was to investigate the effect of baseline pain severity on the effect of treatment.After randomization, patients were divided into subgroups; either low or high baseline pain severity.The results after 12 weeks of treatment indicated that, in patients with high baseline pain severity, OMT was associated with a significantly greater number of cases of substantial pain reduction and improvement in back-specific functioning compared to sham-OMT. These effects were... Read More »
