Synopsis: Thirty patients with chronic neck pain were randomized to receive either conventional physiotherapy (control) or convention physiotherapy with pain neuroscience education (intervention).Outcomes of interest included central sensitization, pain, function, psychosocial factors, knowledge of neuropsychology of pain, and quality of life.The results of this trial found that neurophysiology of pain scores and pain vigilance and awareness scores were significantly more improved in the education group compared to the control group. No other between... Read More »

Synopsis: 57/86 patients completed long term follow up (~11 years) in this secondary study of a randomized controlled trial comparing arthroscopic rotator cuff repair with vs.without acromioplasty.The outcomes of interest included Western Ontario Rotator Cuff score (WORC) and the rate of revision.Results revealed no significant differences between the two groups in long term WORC scores. However, the rate... Read More »

Synopsis: 7 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were included in this systematic review and meta-analysis comparing conservative treatment methods of intra-articular hyaluronic acid injections and corticosteroid injections.Pain scores were pooled at 2, 4, 8, 12, and 26 weeks post-injection.At early follow-up (2 weeks), treatment with corticosteroid injections resulted in lower pain when compared to treatment with hyaluronic acid injections.From 4-8 weeks, treatment displayed similar efficacy.At 12 weeks and 26 weeks, hyaluronic acid injections demonstrated significantly lower pain scores compared to corticosteroid injections.

Synopsis: Twenty-eight patients with severe periarticular foot and ankle fractures were randomized to receive standard pre-operative education with or without the use of a 3D printed model.Outcomes of interest included the Musculoskeletal Outcomes Data Evaluation and Management Scale (MODEMS) questionnaire to determine patient expectations and satisfaction, pain on a Visual Analog Scale (VAS), and Short-Form 12 (SF-12) quality of life scores at 2 weeks, 3, 6 and 12 months post-operatively.No significant differences were found between the groups pre- and post-operatively when evaluating patient expectation, patient satisfaction, VAS pain scores, or SF-12 pain scores at 12 months. The 3D model... Read More »

Synopsis: Five RCTs (n=295 patients) were included in this meta-analysis comparing liposomal bupivacaine (n=148) vs.non-liposomal local anesthetic agents (n=147).The main outcomes that were analyzed were the postoperative visual analogue scale (VAS) pain scores and opioid consumption, measured in morphine milligram equivalents (MME). The results showed... Read More »

Synopsis: Six studies with a total of 257 shoulders were included in this systematic review and meta-analysis comparing rotator cuff repair with vs.without autograft/allograft augmentation.The outcome of interest were functional outcome scores and retear rates with a minimum follow-up period of one year.The results of this meta-analysis found that autograft/allograft augmentation resulted in a significantly lower retear rates and an improvement in pain and functional outcomes vs. those who did...

Synopsis: 529 patients were included in this secondary analysis of the PARITY trial comparing cemented implants (n=396) and uncemented implants (n=133) in endoscopic reconstruction of a lower extremity primary bone tumour.The primary outcome of interest was all-cause revision at 1-year post-operation.Risk factors associated with all-cause re-operation were also explored.Results found no significant difference in all-cause re-operation between the two groups (p=0.952).Operative time and length of incision were found to be predictors of revision surgery. Patients who underwent... Read More »

Synopsis: 60 patients with primary planter heel pain were randomized to receive exercise therapy in combination with either manual therapy or electrophysical therapy.Moderate amount of evidence supporting the use of manual therapy in the treatment of plantar heel pain currently exists. The results of... Read More »
Level 2 RCT

Synopsis: 149 patients (168 heels) with chronic plantar fasciitis were randomized to receive extracorporeal shockwave treatment or conservative treatment consisting of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, orthotics, physical therapy, an exercise program and/or a local cortisone injection.Over 5 to 6 years, patients in the shockwave group had significantly greater improvements in pain and function than the conservative treatment group.The patients who received shockwave therapy were also significantly less likely to experience a recurrence of symptoms compared to the conservative treatment group. The results therefore... Read More »
Level 2 RCT

Synopsis: 41 patients with plantar heel pain were randomized to receive treatment involving stretching of the plantar fascia, calcaneal taping, sham taping, or no treatment.After 1 week, patients were scored on pain and level of functioning.Results indicated that the calcaneal taping group experienced significantly less pain than any other group. There was no... Read More »
