Överskrift Ultrasound therapy of subacromial bursitis. A double blind trial
Beskrivning Ultrasound (US) is used widely to treat patients with supraspinatus tendinitis, subacromial bursitis, or adhesive capsulitis (SSA). No double blind studies of US in the treatment of SSA, however, have been conducted. This study was designed to determine whether the addition of US can further decrease pain and increase range of motion in those receiving the usual courses of ROM exercises and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or ROM exercises in patients with SSA. Twenty patients with SSA were randomized to receive true or sham US three times a week for four weeks. All other aspects of treatment remained constant (ROM exercises and NSAIDs or ROM exercises). The physician, the physical therapist, and the patients were blinded throughout the study regarding the delivery of the true or sham US. Of the multiple variables analyzed (pain, ROM, and function), no significant difference was found between the sham or true US groups. Although the study group was small, the results suggest that US is of little or no benefit when combined with ROM exercises and NSAIDs or ROM exercises in the treatment of SSA.
