An operation for chronic prepatellar bursitis. (1/196)

An operation for chronic prepatellar bursitis is described in which only the posterior wall of the bursa is excised, thus preserving, undamaged, healthy and normally sensitive skin. This procedure is easier and less traumatic than complete excision of the bursa and results in fewer complications. It is suggested that removal of tha anterior wall of the bursa results in unnecessary and harmful interference with the underlying skin. The operation described gives a good functional and structural result; leaving the anterior wall of the bursa does not predispose to recurrence.  (+info)

Adhesive capsulitis: a sticky issue. (2/196)

The shoulder is a very complex joint that is crucial to many activities of daily living. Decreased shoulder mobility is a serious clinical finding. A global decrease in shoulder range of motion is called adhesive capsulitis, referring to the actual adherence of the shoulder capsule to the humeral head. Adhesive capsulitis is a syndrome defined as idiopathic restriction of shoulder movement that is usually painful at onset. Secondary causes include alteration of the supporting structures of and around the shoulder, and autoimmune, endocrine or other systemic diseases. The three defined stages of this condition are the painful stage, the adhesive stage and the recovery stage. Although recovery is usually spontaneous, treatment with intra-articular corticosteroids and gentle but persistent physical therapy may provide a better outcome, resulting in little functional compromise.  (+info)

Diagnostic classification of shoulder disorders: interobserver agreement and determinants of disagreement. (3/196)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the interobserver agreement on the diagnostic classification of shoulder disorders, based on history taking and physical examination, and to identify the determinants of diagnostic disagreement. METHODS: Consecutive eligible patients with shoulder pain were recruited in various health care settings in the Netherlands. After history taking, two physiotherapists independently performed a physical examination and subsequently the shoulder complaints were classified into one of six diagnostic categories: capsular syndrome (for example, capsulitis, arthritis), acute bursitis, acromioclavicular syndrome, subacromial syndrome (for example, tendinitis, chronic bursitis), rest group (for example, unclear clinical picture, extrinsic causes) and mixed clinical picture. To quantify the interobserver agreement Cohen's kappa was calculated. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was applied to determine which clinical characteristics were determinants of diagnostic disagreement. RESULTS: The study population consisted of 201 patients with varying severity and duration of complaints. The kappa for the classification of shoulder disorders was 0.45 (95% confidence intervals (CI) 0.37, 0.54). Diagnostic disagreement was associated with bilateral involvement (odds ratio (OR) 1.9; 95% CI 1.0, 3.7), chronic complaints (OR 2.0; 95% CI 1.1, 3.7), and severe pain (OR 2.7; 95% CI 1.3, 5.3). CONCLUSIONS: Only moderate agreement was found on the classification of shoulder disorders, which implies that differentiation between the various categories of shoulder disorders is complicated. Especially patients with high pain severity, chronic complaints and bilateral involvement represent a diagnostic challenge for clinicians. As diagnostic classification is a guide for treatment decisions, unsatisfactory reproducibility might affect treatment outcome. To improve the reproducibility, more insight into the reproducibility of clinical findings and the value of additional diagnostic procedures is needed.  (+info)

Comparative efficacy and safety of nimesulide and diclofenac in patients with acute shoulder, and a meta-analysis of controlled studies with nimesulide. (4/196)

Adverse events, particularly gastrointestinal, partially offset the therapeutic value of NSAIDs. The abilities of nimesulide to inhibit COX-2 preferentially and to exert other novel anti-inflammatory actions are consistent with good efficacy and safety. This is borne out by a double-blind multicentre comparison of nimesulide and diclofenac in 122 patients with acute shoulder, and by a meta-analysis of various nimesulide trials. At the end of the 14 day double-blind study, nimesulide was at least as effective as diclofenac (investigator ratings: good/very good in 79.0% of patients given nimesulide, and 78.0% with diclofenac; patient ratings: good/very good in 82.3 and 78.0% respectively). Four patients (6.5%) dropped out in the nimesulide group (two early recovery, one lack of effect, one adverse event), compared with 13 (21.7%) in the diclofenac group, due mainly to adverse events (P=0.003). Global tolerability was judged by the investigators to be good/very good in 96.8% of the nimesulide group compared with 72.9% of those given diclofenac. Judgements by the patients were 96.8 and 78.0% respectively. Both differences are highly significant statistically. The meta-analysis demonstrates that nimesulide given for 2 weeks is far more efficacious than placebo in treating osteoarthritis, and is at least comparable to other NSAIDs The benefit-risk ratio for nimesulide was better in all individual studies since 100 mg nimesulide twice daily was about equal to placebo in safety and tolerability, especially regarding gastrointestinal adverse events.  (+info)

Large bursa formation associated with osteochondroma of the scapula: a case report and review of the literature. (5/196)

Bursitis or large bursa formation associated with osteochondroma has rarely been reported. A 33-year-old male presented with upper back pain, a rapidly developing mass beside the lateral border of his right scapula and snapping elicited by movement of the scapula. Plain radiograms and CT revealed osteochondroma on the ventral surface of the scapula without any unmineralized component and a huge cystic lesion around the osteochondroma. Aspiration of the cystic lesion showed the presence of sero-sanguineous fluid. MRI following the aspiration showed a thin cartilaginous cap with distinct outer margin and no soft tissue mass around the cap. Pathological examinations confirmed the diagnosis of osteochondroma with the large bursa formation. Clinical examination 19 months postoperatively showed an uneventful clinical course.  (+info)

Suprascapular nerve block for the treatment of frozen shoulder in primary care: a randomized trial. (6/196)

BACKGROUND: Frozen shoulder is a common problem in general practice, but its treatment is difficult since none of the currently used therapies are proven to be effective. AIM: To assess the effectiveness of suprascapular nerve block to relieve pain and improve range of movement, and its suitability for use in primary care. This small study by a single practitioner aims to justify a larger multicentred trial. METHOD: A randomized trial of 30 patients to compare a single suprascapular nerve block with a course of intra-articular injections. Patients' pain levels and ranges of movement were assessed over a 12-week period. RESULTS: Suprascapular nerve block produced a faster and more complete resolution of pain and restoration of range of movement than a series of intra-articular injections. These differences were confirmed by statistical analysis using the Mann-Whitney U-test (P < 0.01 for pain levels and P < 0.05 for range of abduction and external rotation.) CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that suprascapular nerve block is a safe and effective treatment for frozen shoulder in primary care, and justifies a larger multicentred trial using independent blinded assessment. Such a study should include a third group treated by suprascapular nerve block without steroid; a more comprehensive assessment of patient debility.  (+info)

Management of acute bursitis: outcome study of a structured approach. (7/196)

In patients with septic bursitis the indications for admission and surgical intervention remain unclear, and practice has varied widely. The effectiveness of a conservative outpatient based approach was assessed by an outcome study in a prospective case series. Consecutive patients attending an emergency department with acute swelling of the olecranon or prepatellar bursa were managed according to a structured approach, subjective and objective outcomes being assessed after two to three days, and subsequently as required until clinical discharge. Long-term outcomes were assessed by telephone follow-up for up to eighteen months. 47 patients were included in the study: 22 had septic bursitis, 15 of the olecranon bursa and 7 of the prepatellar bursa. The mean visual analogue pain scores of those with septic bursitis improved from 4.8 at presentation to 1.7 at first follow-up for olecranon bursitis, and from 3.8 to 2.7 for prepatellar bursitis. Symptoms improved more slowly for patients with non-septic bursitis. No patients were admitted initially, but 2 were admitted (two days each) after the first follow-up appointment. One patient had incision and drainage on the third attendance, and 3 patients developed discharging sinuses, which all healed spontaneously. All patients made a good long-term symptomatic recovery and all could lean on the elbow or kneel by the end of the follow-up period. The management protocol, with specific criteria for admission and surgical intervention, thus produced good results with little need for operation or admission.  (+info)

Several classification schemes for adhesive capsulitis are utilized.14,15,5 Adhesive capsulitis is most often categorized as primary or secondary.16,17 Primary adhesive capsulitis occurs without any specific trauma and in the absence of other shoulder lesions.14,2 Some authors include adhesive capsulitis in association with diabetes mellitus and other comorbidities within this category.5,16,17 Secondary adhesive capsulitis is related to articular or periarticular trauma, surgery, rotator cuff tear, or underlying arthritis.14,5,17. The typical presentation of primary adhesive capsulitis is slowly progressing shoulder pain followed by limitations in active and passive range of motion with normal radiographs of the shoulder, except for osteopenia. Restricted external rotation is the most common limitation in range of motion, and limited forward flexion is also commonly seen. Eventually, a global reduction in the range of motion can develop. Four clinical stages of adhesive capsulitis have been ...

Background and purpose A retrocalcaneal bursitis is caused by repetitive impingement of the bursa between the Achilles tendon and the posterosuperior calcaneus. The bursa is situated in the posteroinferior corner of Kagers triangle (retrocalcaneal recess), which is a radiolucency with sharp borders on the lateral radiograph of the ankle. If there is inflammation, the fluid-filled bursa is less radiolucent, making it difficult to delineate the retrocalcaneal recess. We assessed whether the radiographic appearance of the retrocalcaneal recess on plain digital (filmless) radiographs could be used in the diagnosis of a retrocalcaneal bursitis. Methods Whether or not there was obliteration of the retrocalcaneal recess (yes/no) on 74 digital weight-bearing lateral radiographs of the ankle was independently assessed by 2 observers. The radiographs were from 24 patients (25 heels) with retrocalcaneal bursitis (confirmed on endoscopic calcaneoplasty); the control group consisted of 50 patients (59 ...
Stress relaxation and static progressive stretch (SPS) are techniques that may be used to nonoperatively restore joint range of motion in the setting of adhesive capsulitis. The purpose of this study was to prospectively compare standard physical therapy alone to a combination of physical therapy with a static progressive stretch orthosis in the treatment of shoulder adhesive capsulitis. A prospective, randomized, blinded, controlled study was conducted with a total of 60 patients diagnosed with shoulder adhesive capsulitis (30 patients in the control group, 30 patients in the treatment group). The control group received physical therapy for 4 weeks, while the experimental group received physical therapy and were treated with a static progressive stretch shoulder device for 4 weeks. Active and passive abduction, passive external rotation, DASH scores, and VAS pain scores were recorded for all patients at 4, 12, and 24 weeks follow-up. Use of a static progressive stretch orthosis compared to ...
DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a 78-year old woman with longstanding trochanteric bursitis. I am always offered cortisone injections, and most of them have not worked. When they did, they were short-lasting. This bursitis can be severe. In the beginning I was given high doses of anti-inflammatories, but these gave me ulcers, so I can never take them again. I do everything I know to keep the pain at bay. I am wondering if you know of any new remedies for my condition. I am unable to find a physician who specializes in this type of bursitis. I am just told that it falls under the scope of orthopedics, so the physicians I have seen know only about the above remedies to help me.. What is your opinion of surgically removing the bursa, as one physician suggested? -- B.C.. ANSWER: Trochanteric bursitis is inflammation of the bursa (I think of these as oil patches under the skin -- small, lubricating sacs that help tissues move smoothly over each other) that is directly over the point of the hip -- the ...

Clinical History: 70 year-old female with chronic left hip pain...What is your diagnosis?. Diagnosis: Gluteus minimus tear of the left hip with associated trochanteric bursitis.. Discussion: Lateral hip pain is frequently a challenging diagnostic and therapeutic problem. In the past, the presentation of chronic lateral hip pain with tenderness over the greater trochanter was attributed to trochanteric bursitis. This symptom complex, called greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS), can mimic other serious causes of hip pain...Abductor tendon (gluteus minimus and gluteus medius) tears are becoming increasingly recognized as a frequent cause of pain at the hip. In fact, tears of the abductor tendons, instead of trochanteric bursitis, are likely the most common cause of GTPS.. In a large majority of patients, trochanteric bursitis or distension will accompany an abductor tendon tear. The frequent coexistence of trochanteric bursitis and abductor tendinopathy has led some authors to suggest that ...

Greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS), also known as trochanteric bursitis, is inflammation of the trochanteric bursa, a part of the hip. This bursa is at the top, outer side of the femur, between the insertion of the gluteus medius and gluteus minimus muscles into the greater trochanter of the femur and the femoral shaft. It has the function, in common with other bursae, of working as a shock absorber and as a lubricant for the movement of the muscles adjacent to it.[citation needed] Occasionally, this bursa can become inflamed and clinically painful and tender. This condition can be a manifestation of an injury (often resulting from a twisting motion or from overuse), but sometimes arises for no obviously definable cause. The symptoms are pain in the hip region on walking, and tenderness over the upper part of the femur, which may result in the inability to lie in comfort on the affected side.[citation needed] More often the lateral hip pain is caused by disease of the gluteal tendons that ...
Greater trochanteric Bursitis is an inflammation of the bursa, a sac filled with synovial fluid found in the major joints of the body.

Objective: To date, there are no studies addressing the efficacy of hyaluronic acid (HA) injections at the trochanteric bursa in patients with greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS). The objective of the study was to compare the efficacy and safety of HA to corticosteroid injections for the treatment of the GTPS. Methods: This prospective, randomized, two-arm trial involved 47 patients with unilateral or bilateral GTPS. Patients received an intra-bursal injection of 40 mg triamcinolone acetonide plus 1mL lidocaine, or of 60 mg HA. Patients completed visual analog scales (VAS) and Likert scales to evaluate interference of pain with daily activity, recovery from pain, and treatment satisfaction. A non-inferiority analysis was also performed. Results: Mean VAS score for pain significantly decreased comparing baseline with 1, 3 and 6 months in both treatment groups. VAS score for pain on palpation was also significantly lower than baseline in both arms. No significant differences were found between

This intermediate level course developed for occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants, reviews the functional anatomy of the shoulder, provides an overview of adhesive capsulitis, including its etiology and epidemiology, and offers an up-to-date, evidence-based foundation for the diagnosis and intervention of adhesive capsulitis.
Adhesive capsulitis is a condition difficult to define, difficult to treat and difficult to explain from the point of view of pathology. This Codmans assertion is still actual because of a variable nomenclature, an inconsistent reporting of disease staging and many types of treatment. There is no consensus on how the best way best to manage patients with this condition, so we want to provide an evidence-based overview regarding the effectiveness of conservative and surgical interventions to treat adhesive capsulitis.

GTPS, widely known as trochanteric bursitis, encompasses a spectrum of disorders (gluteal tendinopathy, tears, bursitis, and ITB syndrome) that are difficult to distinguish by clinical exam alone. Better understanding of US imaging characteristics in relation to clinical symptoms may be helpful in identifying those patients who would most benefit from corticosteroid injections and other non-operative treatment options.. Point-of-care musculoskeletal US use has been shown to reduce repeated hospital appointments, improve accuracy of diagnosis, and provide expedited treatment, thus improving quality of care in an outpatient musculoskeletal clinic. US assessment is not routinely included in the management of GTPS patients and ideal imaging modalities are not established. ...
To the editor: In their excellent article on septic bursitis in the prepatellar and olecranon bursae, Ho, Tice, and Kaplan (1) reported 24 culture-positive cases of septic bursitis, 22 with Staphylococcus aureus and two with group A, beta-hemolytic streptococci, and at least two culture-negative cases in patients taking antibiotics. This distribution is corroborated by their review of the literature and a subsequent report (2). Isolated cases of septic bursitis involving other organisms were noted, including Mycobacterium marinum, Sporothrix schenckii, and achloric algae. Notably absent were reports of anaerobic bursitis, in contrast to the well-documented association of anaerobic organisms with bone ...
Adhesive capsulitis (also known as frozen shoulder) is a painful and disabling disorder of unclear cause in which the shoulder capsule, the connective tissue surrounding the glenohumeral joint of the shoulder, becomes inflamed and stiff, greatly restricting motion and causing chronic pain. Pain is usually constant, worse at night, and with cold weather. Certain movements or bumps can provoke episodes of tremendous pain and cramping. The condition is thought to be caused by injury or trauma to the area and may have an autoimmune component. Risk factors for frozen shoulder include tonic seizures, diabetes mellitus, stroke, accidents, lung disease, connective tissue diseases, thyroid disease, and heart disease. Treatment may be painful and taxing and consists of physical therapy, occupational therapy, medication, massage therapy, hydrodilatation or surgery. A physician may also perform manipulation under anesthesia, which breaks up the adhesions and scar tissue in the joint to help restore some ...
Stretch Your Shoulders. To stretch the entire shoulder region, take a towel in your right hand and hold it behind your head as though you are holding a long back scratcher. Wrap your left arm around your left lower back so that the bony side of your left hand is against your left lower back, just as a lady would begin to reach around to fasten her bra. In this position, your left hand should be able to easily hold onto the bottom of the towel. Once both hands are firmly holding onto both ends of the towel, use your right hand to slowly pull up on the towel until you feel a good stretch in your left shoulder. Hold this stretch for about 30 seconds and make sure that you dont stop breathing. Then, slowly pull down on the towel with your left hand until you feel a good stretch in your right shoulder. Hold again for 30 seconds and maintain steady breathing. Repeat the same routine on the other side, with your left hand holding the top of the towel and your right hand holding the bottom..

Frozen shoulder, medically referred to as adhesive capsulitis, is a disorder in which the shoulder capsule, the connective tissue surrounding the glenohumeral joint of the shoulder, becomes inflamed and stiff. Movement of the shoulder is severely restricted. People with diabetes, stroke, lung disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and heart disease, or who have been in an accident, are at a higher risk for frozen shoulder.
Adhesive capsulitis (a.k.a frozen shoulder) is associated with synovitis and a capsular contracture of the shoulder joint. (1) Patients with frozen shoulder often have limited active and passive range of motion, significant pain throughout their shoulder range of motion, and associated upper quarter muscle strength deficits. Since the joint capsule is suggested to be the structure limiting movement, range of motion deficits are often greatest in shoulder external rotation , abduction , internal rotation. While adhesive capsulitis is often thought to be a self-limiting condition, studies have reported ranges of between 20 and 50% of patients with adhesive capsulitis which suffer long-term ROM deficits that may last up to 10 years. (2) As a healthcare practitioner it is important to know the expected prognosis and understand the potential for long-standing symptoms does exist. It is also important to understand what is the current best evidence for treatment of adhesive capsulitis and common ...
Did you know that one out of three adults aged 65 and older fall each year? Among older adults, falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries. Our ability to balance when walking or moving can change for a number of reasons. As we age, there is a natural loss of balance due to slowing down of reflexes, muscle weakness and tissue changes. In addition, arthritis in the ankles, knee or hips can affect balance. Furthermore, any neurological changes such as Parkinsons Disease, spinal cord injuries, nerve injuries, back problems and much more can play a role in diminished balance.. Our ability to balance relies mainly on 3 factors. Our ability to perceive movement comes from the nerve sensors in our joints and muscles, our vision and the position of our head in space through the vestibular system in the inner ear. When any one of these factors is not optimum, our ability to balance is affected and our risk for falling greatly increases.. People are often not aware of their change in ...

Adhesive capsulitis or frozen shoulder is a shoulder joint condition defined by pain with decreased active and passive range of motion. The etiology is poorly understood, but the pathological process involves a local inflammatory state, followed by fibrosis or contracture. The condition is often a self-limiting process that resolves within 18-24 months with benign neglect or conservative treatment. Patients failing to improve may require more invasive surgical procedures. The goal of conservative treatment is to reduce pain and improve function; usually this consists of analgesics, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and physical therapy. Invasive procedures used in non-responsive cases carry significant risks, including humoral fracture, infection, and general anesthesia complications. Suprascapular nerve block is a new treatment where the nerve innervating the shoulder joint is blocked with local anesthetic. Currently, this procedure is not the standard secondary treatment for adhesive ...

Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a condition characterized by stiffness and pain in your shoulder joint. Signs and symptoms typically begin gradually, worsen over time and then resolve, usually within one to three years.. Your risk of developing frozen shoulder increases if youre recovering from a medical condition or procedure that prevents you from moving your arm - such as a stroke or a mastectomy.. Treatment for frozen shoulder involves range-of-motion exercises and, sometimes, corticosteroids and numbing medications injected into the joint capsule. In a small percentage of cases, arthroscopic surgery may be indicated to loosen the joint capsule so that it can move more freely.. Its unusual for frozen shoulder to recur in the same shoulder, but some people can develop it in the opposite shoulder.. Frozen shoulder typically develops slowly, and in three stages. Each stage can last a number of months.. ...
Inflammation of trochanteric bursa is one of the most common causes of hip pain. The normally paper-thin bursal wall thickens and loses its lubrication, resulting in outer thigh pain.
WHAT IS IT? Around your hip joint there are many muscles that help to provide the joint with stability. Imbalances between the gluteal muscles and another muscle called tensor fascia lata commonly leads to the inflammation of fluid filled sacs (bursa). When the bursa becomes inflamed it can be extremely painful.
Retrocalcaneal bursitis most commonly occurs as s result of repetitive activity that encourages the calf muscles to tighten and shorten from overuse, like repetitively wearing high heels, running and even wearing tight shoes that pinch at the back of the heel. Symptoms normally include a constant dull ache or burning pain at the back of the heel that is aggravated by any touch or pressure from tight shoes or movement of the ankle joint. There will normally be noticeable swelling around the back of the heel. In cases of bursitis caused by infection the skin around the affected joint will appear red and will feel incredibly warm to the touch. Additional symptoms are a high temperature and feverish chills. Retrocalcaneal bursitis is very similar to Achilles bursitis as the bursae are very close in proximity and symptoms are almost identical however retrocalcaneal bursitis is a lot more common ...
Did you know that one out of three adults aged 65 and older fall each year? Among older adults, falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries. Our ability to balance when walking or moving can change for a number of reasons. As we age, there is a natural loss of balance due to slowing down of reflexes, muscle weakness and tissue changes. In addition, arthritis in the ankles, knee or hips can affect balance. Furthermore, any neurological changes such as Parkinsons Disease, spinal cord injuries, nerve injuries, back problems and much more can play a role in diminished balance.. Our ability to balance relies mainly on 3 factors. Our ability to perceive movement comes from the nerve sensors in our joints and muscles, our vision and the position of our head in space through the vestibular system in the inner ear. When any one of these factors is not optimum, our ability to balance is affected and our risk for falling greatly increases.. People are often not aware of their change in ...

Bursitis is inflammation of a bursa, which is a thin-walled sac lined with synovial tissue. The function of the bursa is to facilitate movement of tendons and muscles over bony prominences. Excessive frictional forces from overuse, trauma, systemic disease (e.g., rheumatoid arthritis, gout), or infection may cause bursitis. Subacromial bursitis (subdeltoid bursitis) is the most common form of bursitis. The subacromial bursa, which is contiguous with the subdeltoid bursa, is located between the undersurface of the acromion and the humeral head and is covered by the deltoid muscle. Bursitis is caused by repetitive overhead motion and often accompanies rotator cuff tendinitis. Another frequently encountered form is trochanteric bursitis, which involves the bursa around the insertion of the gluteus medius onto the greater trochanter of the femur. Patients experience pain over the lateral aspect of the hip and upper thigh and have tenderness over the posterior aspect of the greater trochanter. ...
In the glenohumeral joint, the capsular pattern for motion to be limited is first in external rotation, then in abduction and finally in medial rotation. Thus if a client has difficulty bringing the arm up in abduction but has no problems externally rotation the shoulder then it is unlikely that the client has adhesive capsulitis. The glenohumeral joint has the greatest range of motion of any joint in the body. When the shoulder is in a neutral position (with the arm by the side), there is some slackening of the glenohumeral joint capsule on the underside which is necessary to allow full range of motion of the joint. When the arm/shoulder is moved to other positions, the underside of the capsule becomes taut. Adhesive capsulitis develops when a portion of the joint capsule adheres to itself and prevents full movement of the joint. As the capsule is highly innervated, it is extremely painful when the adhesions pull on the tissues of the capsule. Adhesive capsulitis is generally categorized into ...

Allan:. You are experiencing a fairly typical injury that I often see in my sports podiatry practice: retrocalcaneal bursitis. This injury seems to occur mostly in runners over the age of 40 and is a result of inflammation of a bursa that exists between the front (i.e. anterior aspect) of the Achilles tendon and the back (i.e. posterior aspect) of the calcaneus, basically sandwiched tightly between the Achilles tendon and the posterior calcaneus. This injury is commonly misdiagnosed as Achilles tendinitis when, in fact, it is the bursa itself which is causing the pain and swelling (i.e. edema). It may or may not be associated with a retrocalcaneal spur, which, by the way, you do not have on your x-rays (i.e. standing lateral radiograph of the foot). However, you do have quite a prominent posterior-superior prominence to the calcaneus which may be one of the reasons why you developed retrocalcaneal bursitis, including your transition to shoe with a lower heel (i.e. lower heel-height ...

Evidence-based recommendations on extracorporeal shockwave therapy for refractory greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS) (hip pain)
This is the first study to compare isometric and isotonic exercise for greater trochanteric pain syndrome. Both groups showed similar improvements over a number of outcomes when compared at both 4 and 12 weeks. We found that mean VISA-G scores improved by just over 10 points in both groups by the end of the study. The MCID for the VISA-G has yet to be determined so it is unclear if these improvements are clinically significant. The percentage of participants who reported a reduction in pain of at least 2 points (MCID) on the NPRS was similar between groups at 12 weeks. For GROC, there were equal improvements in both groups at 4 weeks, with both groups demonstrating further increases in the number of participants reporting an MCID of 2 points at 12 weeks. This was more apparent in the isotonic group with a higher percentage reporting a clinically important change. Small improvements were seen in both groups for pain catastrophising, but only one participant in each group had a score of ,30 at ...
Introduction: Osteochondroma is the most common benign tumour of the bone and is considered as developmental lesion of the bone. Common site of osteochondroma presentation is around the knee but calcaneal osteochondroma as such is a rare entity. Osteochondromas grow during childhood through adolescence, but usually the growth of osteochondroma ends when the epiphyseal plates close. In an adult, growth of an osteochondroma suggests the diagnosis of a malignant transformation. However, it can also present as pressure symptom in later phase of life. Here, we presented a case of retrocalcaneal bursitis in late phase of life of a male farmer due to late growth of osteochondroma. Case Presentation: We report a case of calcaneal osteochondroma which is an extremely rare site of occurrence with painful swelling of ankle causing limitation of walking in a 58-year-old male. Surgical excision of tumour followed by a histological confirmation reported negative for any malignant changes. Conclusion: There may be

The clinical characteristics of frozen shoulder is pain and Limited range of motion15). The duration of treatment is from weeks up to several months. Sometimes symptoms disappear spontaneously. In some cases, shoulder joint movement is restricted permanently. Thus, the initial treatment is important16). Its primarily purpose is recovery of range of motion. To it, treatments such as acupuncture, pharmacopuncture, cupping drug therapy and Chuna are performed.. Frozen shoulder was mentioned in Huang Di Nei Jing. Peculiar pathologicla product(Dam-eum) and negative energy like wind(Pung) cold(Han) and wet (Seup) are cause of frozen shoulder in Korean medicine17).. In western medicine, several authorities has various views on the definition and cause of frozen shoulder.. Codman described frozen shoulder that common diseases which can cause shoulder pain and disability, and first used the term frozen shoulder officially18). After he used that term, the shoulder joint diseases are generally diagnosed as ...

Achilles tendon bursitis is a painful condition caused by swelling of the bursa. Dr. Prager offers treatment for Achilles tendon bursitis in Dallas, Arlington & Fort Worth, TX
Excessive internal rotation of the femur is very often caused by biomechanical factors that present in certain foot types. If the structure and function of our feet creates lower limb instability, then it is quite possible that the hips may suffer as a result of this poor motion and alignment. Hip pain can often be traced to excessive rotator muscle activity and changes in pelvic alignment, and is often associated with compression of the sciatic nerve.. Hip pain may be the end result of poor mechanics through the lower limb, but conversely, restrictions in hip range of motion and function can be the causative factor of problems found further down the leg.. Careful assessment is necessary to determine the amount of influence the feet are having. Treatment may include hip stretches, strengthening exercises for muscles associated with pelvic stability, and prescription foot orthotics to improve pelvic stability.. One common overuse injury causing hip pain is Greater Trochanteric Bursitis. This is ...
Ligaments surrounding the joint at the base of the second toe form a capsule, which helps the joint to function properly. Capsulitis is a condition in which these ligaments have become inflamed.. Although capsulitis can also occur in the joints of the third or fourth toes, it most commonly affects the second toe. This inflammation causes considerable discomfort and, if left untreated, can eventually lead to a weakening of surrounding ligaments that can cause dislocation of the toe. Capsulitis-also referred to as predislocation syndrome-is a common condition that can occur at any age.. ...

Hip injuries are extremely common in people of all ages. Children, teens and young adults who participate in sports run a great risk of hip injuries. Senior citizens are also prone to hip injuries due to falls because bone density decreases with age as does joint elasticity. People who carry too much weight are susceptible to hip injuries, too, due to the excessive pressure on the hip.. Even when the injury occurs in the hip, the pain and subsequent compromised mobility may occur in other areas of the body, such as the leg, sciatica, groin or spine. When the symptoms dont manifest in the injured area, it can be difficult for doctors to diagnose the problem correctly. For instance, a groin injury is more likely to indicate a hernia than a hip injury. Sciatic pain usually is attributed to nerve issues, not hip injury. Gluteus medius tears, a rip in the muscle controlling movement away from the body, may cause persistent pain, which can mimic trochanteric bursitis.. Many of these conditions may be ...

Frozen shoulder is caused by inflammation of the tissue that surrounds the shoulder joint. This tissue, which is usually flexible, starts to thicken and limit the range of movement in the shoulder. In more severe cases, movement in the shoulder may be restricted altogether. Medical terms for frozen shoulder are
Treatment of a shoulder separationdepends on its severity. For a type I or II injury, you support your shoulder with a sling. You typically need the sling until the discomfort decreases (a few days to a week). Early physical therapy to strengthen your shoulder and regain range of motion is important for recovery and to prevent frozen shoulder, a condition that limits shoulder motion (adhesive capsulitis). You can return to normal exercises and activities as your pain and other symptoms go away.. Experts dont agree on the best treatment for type III injuries. Some doctors treat them with a sling and physical therapy, while others feel surgery may be needed.. Type IV through VI injuries should be evaluated for possible surgery.. To help relieve pain, put ice on the affected area and take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen or naproxen. Be safe with medicines. Read and follow all instructions on the label.. ...
Exercise and stretching the shoulder are the primary means to treat frozen shoulder. Physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications and cortisone injections may also be prescribed. Most cases of frozen shoulder are resolved non-operatively. However, if the problem is not resolved, surgery may be recommended. The surgeon may perform an arthroscopic capsular release to break up the adhesions. The surgery is an outpatient procedure and can be performed under regional or general anesthesia. Physical therapy following surgery is important in order to regain maximum mobility.. For more information you can go to orthoinfo.aaos.org.. ...

Unfortunately for me, my case is workmans comp. The last 2 surgeries comp did not pay for right away cuz they were fighting me in court so my insurance had to pick it up. During that time my insurance only covered 30 physical therapy appts. I was going 3 times a week after the first surgery cuz of the frozen shoulder. Then went every day for a week 2 months later for the adhesive capsulitis release. Needless to say I ran out of pt quickly. My 3rd surgery was July 26 2017 and after stretching my pt out (going 1 time every other week) my last appt was the last week of September 2017. Im pretty sure thats why some of my range sucks. I can barely touch my left back pocket as far as other numbers Im not sure cuz I havent been in pt. Im almost at a full flexion but my shoulder wings out when I get so far.

Results In the studied group we detected 48 (13,63%) patients with diabetes: 76% with type 2 DM, 9,5% with type 1 DM and in 14% patients with DM we found associacion with GS treatment. DM type 2 was diagnosed at 4,52±4 years after diagnosis of RA and greater incidence was found in men. In the studied group, DM type 1 precedes RA for about 12,13±5 years. In 65% of RA DM patients we detected characteristic features of pseudoscleroderma and 45% patients suffered from adhesive capsulitis of shoulder. We did not find any association with the incidence of DM and vitamin D deficiency. Higher levels (,7%) of glycatedhaemoglobin (HbA1c) indicated difficulties in proper control of DM in 55% of RA DM patients.. ...
The standard cheilectomy (basically shaving off all of the bone spurs, but leaving some damaged cartilage) is definitely what I would try first with painful Hallux Rigidus. Your two limitations to bending the joint is raw exposed bone and the ligaments that surround the joint can get stuck down to the new bleeding bone (called adhesive capsulitis). You will gradually create motion back into the joint with walking, then running activities, but first with self mobilization (I have a video on this and the Physical Therapist can review with you to make sure you are getting it right). Any range of motion device or technique that causes pain while doing will probably make you tighter in the long run. The Dynasplint has been around, but I am not familiar with it enough to comment. Please have the physical therapist measure the joint range of motion (dorsiflexion and plantar flexion) at every visit, and especially after 6 Dynasplint sessions, to document if the range of motion is improving or not. It is ...
