Lesions of the glenoid labrum are a common cause of shoulder instability and a frequent finding in patients with shoulder pain. Management of these patients typically involves an attempt to avoid surgery through conservative treatment. However, there is currently a dearth of conservative options that promote labral healing. Regenerative injection therapies, including prolotherapy, have shown promise in the treatment of several musculoskeletal disorders, but have not previously been applied to… 

Comparative Effectiveness of Ultrasound-Guided Intratendinous Prolotherapy Injection with Conventional Treatment to Treat Focal Supraspinatus Tendinosis

Ultrasound-guided intratendinous prolotherapy injection significantly improves patient's range of abduction and improves sleep within 12 weeks of treatment compared to conventional physiotherapy management.

University of Southern Denmark Translation, adaptation and measurement properties of an electronic version of the Danish Western Ontario Shoulder Instability Index (WOSI) Eshoj,

An electronic Danish version of WOSI presented excellent test-retest reproducibility and acceptable measurement errors, and concurrent validity between paper and electronic version was highly satisfactory as was the construct validity.

Acupuncture-Related Techniques: What To Do When Acupuncture Is Not Enough

It is proposed that prolotherapy is an invaluable acupuncture-related technique that leads to tissue regeneration and functional restoration, and should often be considered as a viable therapeutic modality when acupuncture has failed.

A Prospective Analysis of 179 Type 2 Superior Labrum Anterior and Posterior Repairs

Arthroscopic SLAP repair provides a clinical and statistically significant improvement in shoulder outcomes, however, a reliable return to the previous activity level is limited and additional work is necessary to determine the optimal diagnosis, indications, and surgical management for those with SLAP injuries.

Functional Outcomes of Early Arthroscopic Bankart Repair in Adolescents Aged 11 to 18 Years

It is concluded that primary ABR is an effective treatment of traumatically induced shoulder instability in pediatric patients and limits multiple recurring shoulder dislocations that hinder a patient's quality of life and places them at risk for future negative sequelae.

Prospective Evaluation of Arthroscopic Bankart Repairs for Anterior Instability

Patients under age 25, with ligamentous laxity, and with a large Hill-Sachs lesion were at the greatest risk of recurrence, and identification of risk factors for recurrence allows for appropriate patient counseling and consideration of open stabilization.

Prolotherapy injections and eccentric loading exercises for painful Achilles tendinosis: a randomised trial

For Achilles tendinosis, prolotherapy and particularly ELE combined with prolotherapy give more rapid improvements in symptoms than ELE alone but long-term VISA-A scores are similar.

Anterosuperior labral anatomical variations are associated with increased internal rotation, which may predispose the shoulder to lesions of the superior glenohumeral ligament and anterOSuperior portion of the labrum.
