Synopsis: 58 patients with trigger finger were randomized to receive a single session of dry needling therapy or no intervention.Outcomes of interest included pain on a Visual Analog Scale (VAS), Disability of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) score, pinch grip strength, A1 pulley thickness and tendon thickness.Follow up was performed 1 week after treatment. Results from this... Read More »

Synopsis: 112 patients with trigger finger were randomized to percutaneous release of the A1 pulley with or without the addition of a steroid injection.Patients were assessed after 3 weeks and 3 months for outcome on a patient global impression of improvement scale, modified Quinnell grade, and pain on a visual analog scale. Results demonstrated significantly... Read More »

Synopsis: 80 patients with lateral epicondylitis were randomized to either autologous blood injection or corticosteroid (methylprednisolone) injection.The purpose of this study was to compare these injection therapies for pain, function, and grip strength over 6 months post-injection.Results within the first 2 weeks - 1 month of injection demonstrated favourable outcome with corticosteroid injection. However, results at... Read More »

Synopsis: 84 patients with frozen shoulder were randomized to perform a self-exercise program delivered conventionally or with the aid of a smartphone application.The primary outcome of interest was pain, measured on a Visual Analog Scale (VAS).Secondary outcomes included range of motion (in forward flexion, abduction, internal rotation, external rotation).Usability questionnaires (TAM-2; USE) were administered to determine the feasibility of the application.The results from the trial found no significant differences between the two groups in VAS pain scores nor range of motion in all measured directions. The usability questionnaires... Read More »
Level 2 RCT

Synopsis: 12 randomized controlled trials were included in this meta-analysis comparing outcomes between surgical intervention and control groups, comprised of either nonoperative management or sham surgery, for patients with shoulder impingement.Results for pain demonstrated no significant differences between groups.Results for function in the short-term also demonstrated no significant difference between groups. Results for function... Read More »
