Summary

The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of a combination of art therapy (AT) and physical therapy (PT) to PT only in children undergoing hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT). Each child will receive daily AT and PT or only PT for 5 days per week for 2 weeks. These sessions will begin approximately on day 15 following the transplant. Prior to starting the sessions and following 2-weeks of sessions, we will measure your self-care and mobility skills. During each session, heart rate variability (i.e., time between heart beats) using a small monitor on the chest (about the size of a quarter), walking distance using an accelerometer (similar to wearing a watch), and self-reported happiness and excitability will be measured. Although results cannot be guaranteed, it is expected each group will benefit and demonstrate improvements in emotional state, self-care, and mobility skills.

Summary

This study will consist of patients 12 years and older undergoing ACL reconstruction using a quadriceps or bone-patella tendon bone (BTB) graft. The patients will be randomized to adductor canal block alone, or adductor canal block + iPACK block. The primary goal will be to determine the differences in postoperative pain during the first 72 hours when comparing the two groups. Secondary outcomes will include opioid utilization during the first 72 hours postoperatively and range of motion including terminal knee extension at postoperative follow-up visits.

Summary

The purpose of this research study is to study four treatments for chronic low-back pain to learn whether or not certain treatments work better for people with certain characteristics.The study's main goal is to find a way to match treatments to low-back pain patients based on their characteristics and how they responded to treatments they have used before.

This study is a multi-site, sequential, multiple assignment randomized trial (SMART) designed to meet the primary objective of estimating an algorithm for optimally assigning evidence-based interventions for chronic low-back pain. The trial is based on an individual patient's phenotypic markers and response to treatment. Interventions being evaluated in this trial are: (1) acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), (2) duloxetine, (3) enhanced self-care (ESC), and (4) evidence-based exercise and manual therapy (EBEM).
