A-MUPS score to differentiate patients with somatic symptom disorder from those with medical disease for complaints of non-acute pain
ConclusionsWe conclude that AATG is a promising and safe modality for the treatment of the painful scar. There is an abundance of low-level evidence to support its use as an alternative treatment but there is a lack of high-level evidence at present to support its standard use. Future long-term randomized controlled trials with analgesic scores as the primary outcome measures are required to assess long-term efficacy.
CONCLUSION: Despite early diagnosis and management of this rare injury, the prognosis for functional recovery is guarded and largely dictated by the extent of neurological injury in the setting of concomitant brachial plexopathy. Brachial plexopathy is highly associated with axillary artery injury and its impact often underestimated in comparison due to its non-limb-threatening nature in the acute setting. Future studies should focus on the long-term prognosis for functional recovery in patients with this rare injury pattern. PMID: 31525793 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Inpatient length of stay can be reduced by enhanced recovery concepts without increasing the risks to patients. Thus, in Germany these concepts will be applied increasingly. PMID: 31525792 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: The US-guided local injections offer better clinical outcome in the treatment of facet syndrome. PMID: 31524141 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: The current study indicates that knee muscle strength variables, resulting from an isokinetic testing, have the potential to discriminate between soccer players with and without a history of low back pain. However, low back pain is a multidimensional phenomenon and knee muscle strength or imbalance alone cannot be expected to explain low back pain. PMID: 31524139 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Roberts SB, Calligeros K, Tsirikos AI Abstract This narrative review will summarise a clinical approach to the investigation of back pain in children and adolescent patients, including a discussion of the epidemiology, presentation, investigation and clinical management of back pain in children and adolescents. This will assist the prompt and accurate diagnosis of spinal disorders that require significant medical intervention. Existing evidence suggests a relatively high incidence of non-specific back pain among young people; 27-48% of presentations of back pain in children and adolescents are attributed t...
CONCLUSIONS: Achieved research highlights the importance of a multifactorial approach to pain management and the enormous significance of pain catastrophizing in patients with low back pain. PMID: 31524136 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsConditions of work, such as perceived climate, are associated with improved worker behaviors (physical activity and sleep), worker outcomes (depression, job and life satisfaction, back pain, and general health), and employer (productivity) outcomes.
ConclusionGroup B streptococcal infection might become invasive in immunocompromised patients, so careful follow-up for those patients is important.
Overuse injuries are suggested to result from repetitive microdamage eliciting pain in the affected tissue. Therapy commonly focuses on the area of symptom localization; however, such approach may oversimplify the true etiopathology. This review hypothesizes that the development of some sports-related soft tissue disorders, such as plantar fasciitis or lumbago, is promoted by pathologically altered force transmission from anatomically connected structures.
