Showing trials for
  • Effect of Ibuprofen on Postoperative Opiate Medication Use and Shoulder

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This will be a randomized controlled trial to determine if postoperative ibuprofen after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair impacts postoperative opiate medication use, Visual Analog Scale (VAS) pain scores, shoulder range of motion (ROM), and repair integrity.

  • Operative Versus Non-Operative Treatment for Atraumatic Rotator Cuff Tears

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Rotator cuff tears are one of the most common reasons to seek musculoskeletal care in the United States and one of the fastest growing ambulatory surgery procedures. However, data on comparison of operative versus non-operative treatment is lacking and urgently needed.

  • PEMF as Adjunctive Treatment Following Surgical Repair of Full Thickness Rotator Cuff Tears

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    The primary objective of this study is to prospectively determine, at 12 months post-surgical repair of full thickness rotator cuff tears, the safety and efficacy of treating full thickness rotator cuff repairs with pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF). The hypothesis states that exposure to a pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) following surgical repair of a full thickness rotator cuff tendon tear reduces tendon re-tear rates. The strength of the shoulder muscles and the levels of pain in subjects after surgical repair of their rotator cuff adjunctively treated with an active PEMF device will also be measured.

  • Features to Predict Success With Nonoperative Treatment of Patients With Rotator Cuff Tears

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The goal of this study is to find which patients will improve with the nonsurgical treatment of physical therapy for the treatment of rotator cuff tears.
