Electrotherapy and pulsed ultrasound are ineffective supplements to exercise therapy in patients with soft tissue shoulder disorders, said a Dutch team. Bipolar interferential electrotherapy and ultrasound, commonly used as adjuncts to exercise therapy in people with the shoulder disorders, made no difference to the outcome of patients who had not responded to two weeks of exercise therapy, according to a 180-patient study, lead by Dr Geert van der Heijden of the Institute for Rehabilitation Research in Hoensbroek. The findings appear in the September edition of the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases.
