The Relationship Between Nerve Conduction Study and Clinical Grading of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (2016)

Published by <p>There are many proposed ways to examine and diagnose carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) in the current literature. The authors of the presently examined study sought to determine if sensory and motor nerve conduction studies are correlated with clinical severity grading in people with CTS. A prospective case control design was utilized and was conducted in […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

Effectiveness of the Graded Motor Imagery to Improve Hand Function in Patients with Distal Radius Fracture: A Randomized Controlled Trial (2018)

Published by <p>Distal radius fractures (DRFx) are one of the most common types of fractures. Rehabilitation for DRFx may be complicated due to challenges associated with recovery times, discomfort, pain, and decreased mobility. The pain intensity score during the acute stage postinjury has been shown to determine the patient’s profile for rehabilitation and recovery. Therefore, pain control […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

Effectiveness of the Graded Motor Imagery to Improve Hand Function in Patients with Distal Radius Fracture: A Randomized Controlled Trial (2018)

Published by <p>Neuro Rehabilitation from a DRFx can be complicated by prolonged recovery time, pain, and decreased mobility. Pain is one of the major risk factors inhibiting recovery. In severe cases, patients can develop complex regional pain syndrome (CPRS), a chronic pain condition. Therefore, pain management is essential in the early stages of the rehabilitation of DRFx.

Self-Management Strategies Used by Patients Who Are Hypersensitive to Cold Following a Hand Injury. A Prospective Study with Two Years Follow-Up (2015)

Published by <p>Cold hypersensitivity is a common symptom of upper-extremity nerve injuries. Cold hypersensitivity is associated with an abnormally low tolerance to cold and can affect hand function and activity performance. Previous studies have identified strategies used to manage cold-induced discomfort but do not explore patients’ preferred strategies over time. Study design A prospective cohort study design […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>
