The most common cause of knee pain can hit you in your 30s as easily as it can in your 60s and 70s. Osteoarthritis, or “wear-and-tear arthritis,” is the most common cause of knee pain – and the most common form of arthritis.
Reverse shoulder arthroplasty for rotator cuff tears with and without prior failed rotator cuff repair: A large-scale comparative analysis
Large-scale data assessing the effect of a prior failed rotator cuff repair (RCR) on the outcome of reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) is currently lacking. Therefore, this study aimed (1) to assess the course of patients undergoing RCR, specifically focusing on the need for conversion to RSA within two years, and (2) to compare outcomes following RSA performed for rotator cuff tears (RCTs) with and without prior RCR.
Shoulder tightness can slowly creep up with age, affecting your ability to get adequate sleep, lift grocery bags, scrub the bathtub, or push open heavy doors. Maintaining shoulder mobility usually doesn’t become a focus until these daily activities of living become impacted—or pain and stiffness get unbearable.
With some gyms closed and a number of people working from home, the COVID-19 pandemic has made it more difficult for many people to get in their daily workout. Sedentary behavior, including sitting for long periods of time, can contribute to adverse health effects
A feeling of tightness or stiffness in the knee can occur as a result of overuse, injury, or age-related wear and tear.
The study led by Imperial College London found that flexibility, as well as density, in the bone nanostructure is an important factor in assessing how likely someone is to suffer fractures.
Return to sporting activity after ulnar nerve transposition for isolated neuritis in competitive overhead athletes
Although ulnar neuritis can occur secondary to ulnar collateral ligament pathology, stress fractures, and traction apophysitis, isolated ulnar nerve dysfunction can lead to medial elbow pain. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the short-term outcomes of overhead athletes undergoing anterior ulnar nerve transposition for ulnar neuropathy.
While sprained ankles need time to heal, it is also important to strengthen the muscles around the ankle to help it recover and prevent further sprains.
Because Medicare doesn’t typically cover elective surgeries, you may be concerned that you’ll have to live with pain or pay for the surgery out of pocket. But Medicare will, in fact, pay for a portion of the costs if your doctor states that shoulder replacement surgery is medically necessary in your specific case.
The arthroscopic superior capsule reconstruction (SCR) surgical technique is intended as an option for restoring superior shoulder stability, muscle balance, and shoulder function in patients with irreparable rotator cuff tears.
