Myofascial pain syndrome is common in Rehabilitation clinic. The pain occurs asymmetrically in isolated or regional muscles, and is associated with acute muscle strain or chronic muscle ov...
Myofascial Pain is a clinical condition of myalgic pain characterized mainly by the presence of Myofascial Trigger Points. Trigger points can be active or latent and they are described as ...
This study to determine the effect of conventional therapy and low level laser therapy on pain and function in patients with temporomandibular joint dysfunction. sixty patients with myofas...
Patients with calcinosis cutis due to connective tissue disease get a shock wave therapy. The shock wave therapy will be done in 3 sessions with one week interval. The outcome parameters a...
The purpose of this research is to gather preliminary information on the effectiveness of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) in helping people reduce their weight gain in the central body regi...
To compare the efficacy of high- and low-energy extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) for patients with myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) of the upper trapezius.
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT), including radial shock wave (RaSW) and focused shock wave (FoSW) types, is widely used for managing tendinopathies. The difference in efficacy between the 2 s...
Electrotherapeutic modalities have proven to be one of the best therapeutic options for myofascial pain syndrome, targeting the myofascial trigger points (MTrPs). Combined therapy (CT) is described wi...
Tennis elbow is one of the most often diagnosed pathology of the upper extremity and different treatments have been suggested for this disease, so this study was to investigate the effects of extracor...
The efficacy of photodynamic therapy (PDT) and low level laser therapy (LLLT) in the treatment of oral lichen planus (OLP) is debatable. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of PDT and LLL...
Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
A therapeutic approach, involving chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery, after initial regimens have failed to lead to improvement in a patient's condition. Salvage therapy is most often used for neoplastic diseases.
The use of photothermal effects of LASERS to coagulate, incise, vaporize, resect, dissect, or resurface tissue.
Drug therapy given to augment or stimulate some other form of treatment such as surgery or radiation therapy. Adjuvant chemotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
