Peripheral Joint Injections.

Phys Med Rehabil Clin N Am 2022 05;33(2):267-306

Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Ventura County Medical Center, 300 Hillmont Avenue, Ventura, CA 93003, USA.

Peripheral joint injections are a common interventional treatment of peripheral joint-mediated pain, including arthritis, tendinopathy, and bursitis that are not responsive to conservative management. Degenerative changes of articular joints are often related to these symptoms through chronic inflammatory changes, which typically arise due to repetitive trauma, autoimmune disease, or metabolic abnormalities. The primary diagnosis for degenerative disease in the peripheral joints is osteoarthritis but can also include rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and other less common etiologies. Read More

MR Imaging of the Knee Bursae and Bursal Pathology.

Magn Reson Imaging Clin N Am 2022 May 13;30(2):241-260. Epub 2022 Apr 13.

Division of Musculoskeletal Imaging and Intervention, Department of Radiology, Massachusetts General Hospital, 55 Fruit Street, Yawkey 6E, Boston, MA 02114, USA. Electronic address:

The main function of the knee bursae is to provide cushioning for the many periarticular ligaments, tendons, and osseous structures. Bursae can only be visualized when distended by fluid, therefore bursal anatomy is best evaluated by MR imaging using fluid-sensitive sequences. Knowledge of the normal bursal distribution is important to avoid incorrectly interpreting a distended bursa as a periarticular fluid collection or cyst. Read More

Editorial Commentary: It Is Imperative to Fix Symptomatic Hip Gluteus Medius Tears at Time of Femoroacetabular Impingement: Why Ignore This Pain in the Butt?

Arthroscopy 2022 May;38(5):1506-1508

Akron, Ohio.

The hip can have a multitude of different pathologies leading to different symptoms. Greater trochanteric pain syndrome, historically attributed to bursitis, has been largely found to be associated with lesions of the gluteus medius and minimus tendons, and the prevalence of gluteus medius pathology in patients with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is as high as one-third of the FAI population. If a patient is found to have significant clinical symptoms of both FAI and a gluteus medius tear, it is imperative to fix both pathologies. Read More

A prospective observational study on the beneficial effects and tolerability of a cetylated fatty acids (CFA) complex in a patch formulation for shoulder tendon disorders.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2022 Apr 12;23(1):352. Epub 2022 Apr 12.

UOC Recupero E Riabilitazione Funzionale, Ambito Territoriale Pisano, ASL Toscana Nordovest, Pisa, Italy.

Background: The advancement of physiopathological knowledge of tendon structures has shown that, in conditions of overload, there is the onset of both degenerative phenomena, such as the production of metalloproteases, apoptosis of tendon cells and neoangiogenesis, and regenerative and protective phenomena, such as the production of IGF-1 and nitric oxide. Tendinopathy results from the imbalance between these two groups of factors, leading to degeneration, weakening, and fissuring of the tendons, with the presence of local pain. The aim of the study was to evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of cetylated fatty acids (CFA) patch formulation in the control of acute localized shoulder pain and recovery of function in patients with tendinopathies.

Classification Based Treatment of Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (GTPS) with Integration of the Movement System.

Int J Sports Phys Ther 2022 1;17(3):508-518. Epub 2022 Apr 1.

Department of Physical Therapy, Duquesne University.

Greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS) refers to pain in the lateral hip and thigh and can encompass multiple diagnoses including external snapping hip (coxa saltans), also known as proximal iliotibial band syndrome, trochanteric bursitis, and gluteus medius (GMed) or gluteus minimus (GMin) tendinopathy or tearing. GTPS presents clinicians with a similar diagnostic challenge as non-specific low back pain with special tests being unable to identify the specific pathoanatomical structure involved and do little to guide the clinician in prescription of treatment interventions. Like the low back, the development of GTPS has been linked to faulty mechanics during functional activities, mainly the loss of pelvic control in the frontal place secondary to hip abductor weakness or pain with hip abductor activation.
