Synopsis: 40 patients with rotator cuff tendinitis were randomized to subacromial injection of either platelet-rich plasma or triamicinolone acetonide.Patients were assessed for pain and functional score over a 12-month follow-up.Change in Constant score after 12 months was significantly greater in the PRP group compared to the steroid group. Both groups demonstrate... Read More »

Synopsis: 26 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) with a total of 2565 patients were included in this systematic review to determine whether massage therapy is an effective method to treat patients diagnosed with common musculoskeletal complaints, such as shoulder pain, knee osteoarthritis, low back pain, and neck pain.Pooled analysis of a limited number of studies for each complaint demonstrated favourable results for massage therapy compared to no intervention of pain and function associated with shoulder complaints and knee osteoarthritis, while no significant clinically relevant benefits were observed in cases of low back pain and neck pain. Analyses of massage... Read More »

Synopsis: Ten studies, including nine randomized controlled trials and one prospective cohort study, were included in this meta-analysis to investigate the efficacy of injury prevention programs in adolescent team sports.Pooled results demonstrated a significant injury rate reduction with the use of injury prevention programs versus control interventions overall.Subgroup differences were noted for the type of sport, in which basketball/handball experienced a greater injury rate reduction with injury prevention programs than in soccer, and type of program implemented. NonFIFA11+ programs experienced... Read More »

Synopsis: 72 patients with Kellgren-Lawrence grade II-III knee osteoarthritis were randomized to daily sessions of high-intensity laser therapy (HILT) for 1 week, or to a sham intervention.Patients were followed up for pain at rest, on palpation, and on movement, pressure-pain threshold, the maximum pressure under the heel during static stance, the maximum pressure under the heel during dynamic walking, and the total plantar surface of each leg. Percent changes from... Read More »

Synopsis: 26 studies were included in this meta-analysis and systematic review on the use of low intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) following either fracture, nonunion, or osteotomy.Results on time to union demonstrated no significant difference between LIPUS and control in studies with low risk of bias; in studies with high risk of bias, LIPUS was associated with a significantly shorter time to union. Results on functional... Read More »

Synopsis: 43 patients scheduled for reverse shoulder arthroplasty were randomized to either topical tranexamic acid during closure or a control group which did not receive tranexamic acid.Patients were assessed for postoperative blood loss to drainage, transfusion rate, and complications.Postoperative drainage volume was significantly lower in the topical TXA group compared to the control group. No patient of... Read More »

Synopsis: Eight randomized controlled trials were included in this meta-analysis comparing the results of intra-articular steroid injection to either sham injection or no injection in the treatment of frozen shoulder.Results were pooled at 4-6 weeks, 12-16 weeks, and 24-26 weeks.Pain scores were significantly lower following IA steroid injection versus control at all three time intervals.Shoulder range of motion was also reported to be greater following IA steroid injection versus control. Results from clinical... Read More »

Synopsis: 41 patients with a full-thickness rotator cuff tear were randomized to either surgical repair or conservative treatment.Patients were assessed at 1 year postoperatively for muscle atrophy and fatty infiltration on MRI.Of the 19 patients allocated to repair, five patients had intact repairs at 1 year, while the remaining 14 had either a retear or failed repair. Irrespectively, change in... Read More »

Synopsis: 44 patients with a small (<1.0cm), partial-thickness, interstitial tear of the supraspinatus tendon were allocated to a standardized physical therapy program and randomized to treatment with or without the addition of three platelet rich plasma injections.Patients were followed-up at 3 and 6 months on the Shoulder Pain and Disability Index.At 6 months, SPADI scores were significantly lower in the PRP group compared to the control group. No treatment-related adverse... Read More »
