Abstract From the perspective of a multidisciplinary team, the authors describe the first reported use of ultrasound guidance for steroid injection into the pisotriquetral joint to relieve wrist pain of a person with spinal cord injury undergoing acute inpatient rehabilitation. Musculoskeletal ultrasound guidance was used to improve the accuracy of a corticosteroid injection of the pisotriquetral joint and the basal thumb in a 70-year-old man with paraplegia experiencing multifocal degenerative wrist pain. There was no bleeding or bruising after the injections, and the patient reported complete pain resolution 1 wk after...

We reported a patient with C5 [S(C5/C6)] ASIA Impairment Scale C SCI due to cervical myelopathy who presented CO2 retention when taking a therapeutic dosage of pregabalin. An 88-year-old patient with cervical SCI was transferred to the department of physical medicine and rehabilitation. When he had transferred, his neuropathic pain had been treated with 150-mg pregabalin per day (75 mg twice a day); however, he still exhibited severe neuropathic pain with a Numeric Pain Rating Scale score of 7 to 8. Dosage for the pregabalin increased from 150 mg/d (75 mg twice a day) to 225 mg/d (150 mg at morning and 75 mg at dinner). Th...

Musculoskeletal injury and surgery both impact the short-term and long-term health and function of muscle. Muscle injury is a complicated process that can ultimately result in loss of muscle, formation of scar, and diminished function over the course of weeks to months. The extent of initial trauma (from injury) as well as on-going trauma (eg, from an unstable extremity) determines the amount of muscle damage. This has direct and distinct implications for pain, rehabilitation, and long-term functional outcomes in orthopedic trauma patients. Both the extent and the location of surgical injury of muscle can affect surgical o...

Authors: Swinnen TW, Vlaeyen JWS, Dankaerts W, Westhovens R, de Vlam K Abstract OBJECTIVE: To determine whether fear of movement and (re)injury [FOM/(R)I] beliefs, measured with the Tampa Scale for Kinesiophobia 11-item version (TSK-11), influence activity limitations and mediate the relationship between pain severity and activity limitations in axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA). METHODS: In 173 patients with axSpA, these data were collected: sex, body mass index, disease duration, medication, activity limitations (BASFI; Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Functional Index), disease activity [Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis...

We have all seen and heard the story: a patient who is overweight and has heart problems (or arthritis, diabetes, low back pain or any number of other chronic conditions) is told by their doctor that they need to exercise. The patient agrees, “Yes, I really will try to start an exercise program.” Six months later, the patient is back in the doctor’s office, and the conversation goes something like this: “Well, I started going to the gym, but it really didn’t help.” OR “I started walking around my neighborhood, but the kids, work or any number of other life factors impeded the progr...
