Arthroscopic surgery compared with supervised exercises in patients with rotator cuff disease (stage II impingement syndrome)
TLDR
Surgery or a supervised exercise regimen significantly, and equally, improved rotator cuff disease compared with placebo in both groups given the active treatments.
Arthroscopic surgery versus supervised exercises in patients with rotator cuff disease (stage II impingement syndrome): a prospective, randomized, controlled study in 125 patients with a 2 1/2-year
TLDR
The effectiveness of arthroscopic surgery, supervised exercises, and placebo was compared in 125 patients with rotator cuff disease (impingement syndrome stage II) in a randomized clinical trial and the success rate was higher for patients randomized to surgery and exercises compared with the placebo group.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, including cyclo-oxygenase-2 inhibitors, in osteoarthritic knee pain: meta-analysis of randomised placebo controlled trials
TLDR
NSAIDs can reduce short term pain in osteoarthritis of the knee slightly better than placebo, but the current analysis does not support long term use of NSAIDs for this condition.
Efficiency and Costs of Medical Exercise Therapy, Conventional Physiotherapy, and Self‐Exercise in Patients With Chronic Low Back Pain: A Pragmatic, Randomized, Single‐Blinded, Controlled Trial With
TLDR
No difference was observed between the medical exercise therapy and conventional physiotherapy groups, but both were significantly better than self‐exercise group, and patient satisfaction was highest formedical exercise therapy.
Short‐term efficacy of pharmacotherapeutic interventions in osteoarthritic knee pain: A meta‐analysis of randomised placebo‐controlled trials
TLDR
This poster focuses on the part of the knee that is affected by chronic inflammation and the management of these symptoms through physical activity and lifestyle modifications.
A systematic review with procedural assessments and meta-analysis of Low Level Laser Therapy in lateral elbow tendinopathy (tennis elbow)
TLDR
LLLT administered with optimal doses of 904 nm and possibly 632 nm wavelengths directly to the lateral elbow tendon insertions, seem to offer short-term pain relief and less disability in LET, both alone and in conjunction with an exercise regimen.
Mobilization-Observation-Behavior-Intensity-Dementia Pain Scale (MOBID): development and validation of a nurse-administered pain assessment tool for use in dementia.
TLDR
It is suggested that registration of pain behavior indicators during active, guided movements, as performed by the MOBID procedure, is useful to disclose reliable and valid pain intensity scores in patients with SCI.
Who suffers most? Dementia and pain in nursing home patients: a cross-sectional study.
TLDR
Patients with severe dementia and mixed dementia are at high risk to suffer from severe pain and more research and quality improvement programs are needed to increase the knowledge in pain treatment by staff, which requires competence in both pain assessment and dementia.
Back Performance Scale for the assessment of mobility-related activities in people with back pain.
TLDR
The Back Performance Scale appears to measure an aspect of physical performance that is of clinical importance to patients with back pain.
Postoperative pain relief after total hip arthroplasty: a randomized, double-blind comparison between intrathecal morphine and local infiltration analgesia.
TLDR
Lower pain intensity was recorded early after surgery in ITM group but later, analgesic consumption, pain intensity on mobilization, and side-effects were lower in patients receiving LIA, which is a good alternative to ITM in patients undergoing THA.
