A significant weakness and apprehension among the sufferers was shoulder conditions such as frozen shoulder. It gives rise to the need to consider the underlying causes and treatment of the disease. Short-wave diathermy, acupuncture and supervised active exercises have been reported to be successful in frozen shoulder management. Mrs. Sneha batra is a 54-year-old woman diagnosed with right frozen shoulder and referred for physiotherapy. She had a four-month history of painful and limited active and passive glenohumeral joint range of motion prior to diagnosis. On inspection, the range of motion of the right shoulder was limited to all directions. After careful review, shortwave diathermy, acupuncture and supervised active exercises were added.(1)
In 2-5 percent of the population, the condition exists, and it is extremely common around the age of 50 years. After 1-4 years, frozen shoulder symptoms will return. To relieve the effects of frozen shoulder, many patients turn to acupuncture.(2) Patients registered a dramatic improvement in pain and range of motion of right shoulder after 8 weeks of shortwave diathermy , acupuncture and controlled active exercises. Findings from this study found that shortwave diathermy and controlled active exercises are successful in frozen shoulder management because after six weeks of both therapies, they showed a substantial improvement in pain and range of motion.(1)
Supervised active exercises help increase the range of movement and alleviate discomfort, while short-wave diathermy relieves pain and increases the extensibility of tissue. The preference in this study for shortwave diathermy over other electrotherapy modalities is because it is effective in deep-rooted pain management and covers a wide area of skin. The study showed that rate of frozen shoulder resolution is increased by shortwave diathermy and controlled active exercises.(1) Acupuncture could be safe and effective for painreduction, restoring shoulder function, and restoring flexion ROM for frozen shoulder patients.(2)

A growing number of publications in the literature show that chronic pain is
also characteristic of patients with terminal renal failure (TRF). The disease tends to be
moderate or severe and affects virtually all aspects of health and quality of life.
Unfortunately, there is a lack of clinical and research focus in nephrology, and TAPN pain
is poorly understood. The article reflects the main aspects of the problem of pain
medication therapy for patients with terminal renal insufficiency receiving chronic
hemodialysis. The main pathophysiological mechanisms of medication influence on kidney
structures are described.

REBA and RULA Ergonomic tools are used for evaluation and ergonomic assessment while carrying, handling, lifting and shifting the load. For evaluation of complex manual water fetching activities a RULA and REBA ergonomic tool is used .In this study of water fetching activities maximum women from rural area were participated. Based on this ergonomic tool observation, water fetching activities of women while water fetching, video recordings and photographs were taken. The reviewed literature, postural activity guidelines are proposed for summarizing analysis of water fetching women’s activity and discomfort has been reported. The basic aim of water fetching study is to make assessment of the level of exposure of ergonomics in various water fetching activities. Another objective of the water fetching activities is to find the level of exposure and musculoskeletal disorders in different body segment and gives the corrective steps to reduce the health risk in the water fetching activity.

Temporomandibular disorders are considered as the main source of pain in the head and neck region which is of non- dental in origin. Its etiology is multifactorial and its pathogenesis has not been completely understood. The interest in the relationship between occlusal factors, orthodontic treatment and TMD has increased over the years. Hence the aim of this article is to review ten association of TMD and orthodontics from the available literature.

Background: Migraine pain is a primary headache disorder characterized by recurrent headaches that are moderate to severe. Objective: To evaluate the effect of noninvasive pulsed radio frequency (pulsed RF) in Migraine. Methods: In a prospective study of the intervention performed in adult population with Migraine (Diagnosed by specialists) carried on (30) patients undergone pulsed RF for greater and lesser occipital nerves to control recurrent migraine not responding to conventional treatment (resistant) in a period from Jan. 2017 to Jan 2019 in Al Safeer Hospital for surgical specialties and Alkafeel Hospital for surgical specialties both in Karbala / Iraq. The patients got in prone position under local anesthesia with goal positions with the target sites obvious out using anatomical breakthroughs and the position of greatest ache. Pulsed RF by RF needle to the affected side to reach greater and lesser occipital nerves then got 3 sessions (each for 3 minutes, temperature 42 C, voltage 42 V, resistance with 100 Ohms, Current with 230 mA) Patients monitored post-operatively for 2 hours then discharged. Follow up at intervals of 30 days, 6 months and 1 year by phone call or direct interview to assess the post procedure pain scale. Result: Significant pain relieve by means of no or little pain medication and actual life pattern change and performance in 1-year post procedure. Conclusion: A single trial of pulsed RF is effective for pain reliever.

Oral health is a vital part of overall infant health.An early age between 6 months to 12 months dental visit is important in rendering prevention,intervention and parental counselling regarding oral health. Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual potential tissue damage according to internal association for the study of pain. Aim of the study is to assess the association between age of the first dental visit and pain in children. A retrospective cross-sectional study was conducted using the patient records from the Department of pedodontic, Saveetha Dental College,visited from February 2019 to February 2020.The children with first dental visit without the past dental history were collected and from which whosoever first visit with chief complaint of pain data were gathered . The collected Data was then subjected to statistical analysis using spss version 20.0.Overall prevalence of chief complaint of pain during first visit was (96.5%). Among first dental visit with pain about 47.2 % was seen in the age of 6-8 years while the least was (14.0%) seen at the age of 11-13 years.The results proved that many parents were unaware about the right age of the child first dental visit.Most of the parents bought their children to the dentist after their child experienced or suffered from pain.There is a need to raise awareness about the importance of oral health care of their children sensitively at the budding stage of life
