Abstract De Quervain's tendinopathy (DQT) is a musculoskeletal disorder that limits hand function of affected individuals. Management of DQT can include splinting, activity modification, medications, corticosteroid injections, physical therapist management, and surgery. There is limited evidence to support the combination of manual therapy and exercise interventions within an Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy (OMPT) approach when managing patients with DQT. Three patients identified with DQT underwent a multi-modal treatment regimen including carpometacarpal (CMC) thrust and non-thrust manipulation, end range rad...

Study Design. A retrospective study of a randomized clinical trial and a prospective study of patients with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). Objective. The aim of this study was to identify the effects of the number of physical therapy (PT) sessions on clinical outcomes of patients with LSS. Summary of Background Data. Supervised PT for patients with LSS has been reported to lead to better short-term outcomes in terms of disability and leg pain than unsupervised exercise. However, no studies have investigated the relationship between the number of PT sessions and the therapeutic effects in patients with LSS. Methods....

AbstractPurpose of ReviewUrologic chronic pelvic pain syndrome (UCPPS) is a chronic, noncyclic pain condition which can lead to significant patient morbidity and disability. It is defined by pain in the pelvic region, lasting for greater than 3 to 6  months, with no readily identifiable disease process. The aim of this review is to provide a comprehensive update of diagnosis and treatment of UCPPS.Recent FindingsUCPPS encompasses chronic pelvic pain syndrome or chronic prostatitis (CP/CPPS) in men and interstitial cystitis or painful bladder syndrome (IC/PBS) in women. Underlying inflammatory, immunologic, and neuropa...

Authors: Bölük Şenlikci H, İkbali Afşar S, Özen S Abstract Adhesive capsulitis is a common problem in patients with chronic kidney disease. Patients suffer from joint stiffness and painful joint movement.Conservative treatments consist non-steroid antiinflamatory drugs, intraarticular injections and physical therapy. Newer approches such as platelet-rich plasma injections (PRP) also can be applied but there is little evidence for the effectiveness of PRP in patients with adhesive capsulitis. A 70 year-old woman, receives dialysis treatment admitted to our out-patient clinic with stiffness and pain...

CONCLUSIONS: The risk-adjusted performance ratios for the MDQ and NDI resulted in disparate conclusions regarding the quality of care compared with the raw, unadjusted change scores. According to the baseline and unadjusted change in the MDQ, even physical therapists in the most homogeneous sample were differentiated following appropriate risk adjustment. Clinically important improvements in actual PROs were observed in the outperforming but not in the underperforming physical therapists. Clinically meaningful differences in the performance ratio are unknown and are a limitation to clinical application and an opportunity f...

This study aimed to assess the costs, health status, and medical service satisfaction with Korean and conventional medicine use before and after surgery of patients visiting Korean medicine hospitals for postsurgical musculoskeletal pain. The study population comprised patients who visited KM hospitals for the first time between June and November 2017 for persistent or recurrent pain and discomfort after low back, neck, shoulder, or knee surgery. Various validated questionnaires were used to collect data. A total of 100 participants were enrolled, and the majority had undergone low back surgery (n = 82). The ...
