  Purpose
Back injuries are the most common reason people seeking for effective treatment. One of the most common treatments in sports medicine for muscular injuries is therapeutic ultrasound, which is designed to heat the injured tissue and increase the flow of blood to promote healing.

Condition Intervention
Injury; Muscle, Back, Lower Device: Diffuse Optical Spectroscopy

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Control
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: A Pilot Study to Investigate Non-Invasive Metabolic Guidance for Improving Therapeutic Ultrasound Treatment of Lower Back Muscle Injuries

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Normal lower back muscle [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Diffuse Optical Spectroscopy Imaging measure blood flow,oxygen, temperature in back muscle when they are treated with therapeutic ultrasound and can improve the treatment


Enrollment: 5
Study Start Date: December 2013
Study Completion Date: December 2015
Primary Completion Date: December 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Musculoskeletal injuries
Diffuse Optical Spectroscopy Imaging measure blood flow,oxygen, temperature in back muscle when they are treated with therapeutic ultrasound and can improve the treatment
Device: Diffuse Optical Spectroscopy
Diffuse Optical Spectroscopy Imaging measure blood flow,oxygen, temperature in back muscle when they are treated with therapeutic ultrasound and can improve the treatment

Detailed Description:

Researchers at Beckman Laser institute, using a technology developed at University of California, Irvine. The device call Diffuse Optical Spectroscopy, this device developed with harmless light that can measures and detect the change of blood flow, oxygen level, temperature and muscle tissue in lower back during therapeutic ultrasound therapy treatment.

The researchers can provide information in real-time tissue change before, during, and after treatments that can determine the effectiveness of the treatment and speed up recovery time.
