AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis paper aims to review the evidenced-based management of greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS).Recent FindingsThere are various studies evaluating greater trochanteric pain syndrome that illustrate the mainstay of treatment is activity modification with the implementation of isometric and isotonic exercise programs. If conservative care fails, short-term benefits can be seen with corticosteroid injections. More refractory cases of GTPS should be referred for diagnostic ultrasound evaluation to illustrate gluteal tendinosis that could benefit from a targeted treatment such as percutaneous ten...

Chronic degenerative conditions such as knee arthritis can be a debilitating and limiting process for patients presenting with symptoms such as pain, restrictive range of motion and swelling. This condition commonly afflicts millions of people with a higher incidence among the elderly as a result of chronic mechanical repetitive loading. The treatment of pain generating conditions such as arthritis in large joints is complex requiring interventions of varying focuses such as weight loss, anti-inflammatory medications, corticosteroid, hyaluronic and viscosupplementation injections, and prescription opioids.

Abstract In the United States, up to 2% of ambulatory visits are related to sore throats.1 'Sore throat' is a broad term with a wide range of etiologies. Infections are the most common cause, with group A beta-hemolytic streptococcus (GABHS) accounting for 10% of cases in adults and up to 30% in pediatric patients.2,3 A variety of interventions can be used to reduce pain, and while antibiotics are frequently used to treat infection, their overall analgesic effect is likely small and their overuse may lead to bacterial resistance and other adverse events.4,5.
