Clinical Predictors of Extracorporal Shockwave Therapy Efficacy in Patients Presenting With Lateral Hip Pain

2019-08-18 20:09:18 | BioPortfolio


This pragmatic clinical trial is considering the variable response to treatment outcome of individuals with Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (GTPS). The aim of this study is to identify predictors of focused extracorporeal shockwave therapy (fESWT) efficacy in individuals with GTPS. Specifically, the ability of clinically applicable measurements including: Patient demographics, co-morbidity, oestrogen levels, pain characteristics, hip abductor strength, time to pain during single-leg stance test, low back pain, and immediate pain reduction to local anaesthetic injection at the trochanter major insertion of Gluteus medius (GMed) during walking.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Intervention that relies on free expression of emotions with coaching to enhance awareness of emotional experiences.

The use of focused short radio waves to produce local hyperthermia in an injured person or diseased body area.

The use of focused, high-frequency sound waves to destroy tissue. It is sometimes used in conjunction with but is distinct from INTERVENTIONAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY.

The use of focused, high-frequency sound waves to produce local hyperthermia in certain diseased or injured parts of the body or to destroy the diseased tissue.
