Abstract: This case report describes what the authors believe is the first case of a patient with obturator internus tendinitis and bursitis successfully treated with a corticosteroid injection using a trans-tendinous lateral to medial approach. The patient presented with right gluteal pain not relieved by physical therapy or right hip and ischial bursa corticosteroid injections. Pelvic and lumbar spine MRIs and EMG/NCS findings were unremarkable. Physical examination demonstrated tenderness to palpation at the right middle lower gluteal region. Ultrasound imaging with sonopalpation identified the maximal local tender poin...

Abstract: Injection techniques for carpal tunnel syndrome have evolved from landmark palpation injection techniques to more accurate ultrasound-guided approaches. Presented is a case report describing a technique serendipitously discovered during a carpal ligament fenestration. The case involved a 66-year-old man with a diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome. After a failed attempt at treatment using a wrist splint and activity modification, he was treated by median nerve hydrodissection with 100% temporary pain relief. When his symptoms recurred, a carpal tunnel combined hydrodissection/fenestration technique was performed. ...

In this study, we examined the effectiveness of Ashtanga yoga as an intervention to improve psychological well-being.
