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...
The objective of the study was to compare the effects of shockwave therapy and laser therapy on pain, neck functionality, and quality of life in patients with myofascial pain syndrome of the trapezius...
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...
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) has been suggested as a useful treatment for spasticity in patients with stroke. To data, most studies used clinical or biomechanical assessments to determine ...
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.
A nonsurgical treatment that uses either HIGH-ENERGY SHOCK WAVES or low energy ACOUSTIC WAVES to treat various musculoskeletal conditions (e.g., PLANTAR FASCIITIS; TENNIS ELBOW). A probe placed on the skin conducts the shock waves thereby delivering a mechanical force to the body’s tissues.
