Fourth video of PEDro Advanced Search for the “You Ask #PEDroAnswers” campaign

Each month in 2021 we will share short videos illustrating how to use the PEDro Advanced Search to find the best research to answer clinical questions submitted by PEDro users.

The fourth question to be answered is “In musicians with musculoskeletal injuries, does trigger point therapy decrease the time to return to playing an instrument compared to rest and advice?”

The Search terms are:

  • musculoskeletal (Subdiscipline)
  • trigger* (Title Only)
  • upper arm, shoulder or shoulder girdle (Body Part).

PEDro acknowledges the contributions of: Ana Helena Salles from Faculdade de Ciências Médicas de Minas Gerais, Brazil who translated and recorded the Portuguese version; and, Sébastien Matéo, Celine Lesage and Matthieu Guémann from the Société Française de Physiothérapie who translated and recorded the French version.
