The Effectiveness Of Ischemic Compression And IASTM In Trigger Point Treatment In Patients With Rotator Cuff Tear

2020-03-30 04:42:32 | BioPortfolio


The aim of this study is to determine the effects of ischemic compression and IASTM techniques on pain, EHA, functionality, anxiety and depression in patients with the diagnosis of RM tear and presence of ATN. In addition, ischemic compression and EDYDM methods were aimed to compare and to reveal which application would be more useful.


In this study participants were randomly divided into two groups. While ischemic compression was applied to one group for the determined active trigger points, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) was applied to the other group for active trigger points. In addition to the treatment, both groups were subjected to a joint rehabilitation program.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Compression of the rotator cuff tendons and subacromial bursa between the humeral head and structures that make up the coracoacromial arch and the humeral tuberosities. This condition is associated with subacromial bursitis and rotator cuff (largely supraspinatus) and bicipital tendon inflammation, with or without degenerative changes in the tendon. Pain that is most severe when the arm is abducted in an arc between 40 and 120 degrees, sometimes associated with tears in the rotator cuff, is the chief symptom.

Injuries to the ROTATOR CUFF of the shoulder joint.

Rapidly destructive shoulder joint and bone disease found mainly in elderly, and predominantly in women. It is characterized by SHOULDER PAIN; JOINT INSTABILITY; and the presence of crystalline CALCIUM PHOSPHATES in the SYNOVIAL FLUID. It is associated with ROTATOR CUFF INJURIES.

The musculotendinous sheath formed by the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis, and teres minor muscles. These help stabilize the head of the HUMERUS in the glenoid fossa and allow for rotation of the SHOULDER JOINT about its longitudinal axis.

The application of repeated, brief periods of vascular occlusion at the onset of REPERFUSION to reduce REPERFUSION INJURY that follows a prolonged ischemic event. The techniques are similar to ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING but the time of application is after the ischemic event instead of before.
