Pickleball has become wildly popular, but that may be fueling a rise in pickleball-related injuries. “It’s quickly becoming a sport of choice for adults over the age of 50,” said Dr. Brian Cole, an orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. He also plays pickleball.
Tendinitis can take time to heal. Natural remedies for the inflammation include rest, ice, compression, physical therapy, and complementary treatments, such as acupuncture.
Neal Glaviano, assistant professor of kinesiology in the College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources, has discovered that rehabilitation to address chronic knee pain may not be targeting all the right muscles.
Knee pain at night is a common discomfort that can be caused by injury, arthritis, bursitis, gout, and more. This pain at bedtime is not only frustrating but also can lead to pain-induced insomnia, which can leave you exhausted during the day.
Moderate to vigorous physical activity early in the day influences weight management, health outcomes
Even though epidemiological evidence has been controversial regarding the optimal timing of physical activity for weight management, the hours of 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. appear to be the most favorable time of day to enhance the association between daily moderate to vigorous physical activity and obesity
Results published in Journal of Orthopedic Surgery showed that a thin, laser-etched osteochondral allograft yielded positive short-term clinical outcomes in isolated articular cartilage defects in the knee.
Osteochondritis dissecans of the knee may not cause any symptoms, but some people may experience pain and swelling. Engaging in competitive sports may contribute to its development.
While ACL reconstruction with an allograft was associated with a high risk of revision in younger patients, it may be an acceptable choice for older patients who are not athletes
An elliptical trainer puts less strain on the joints. However, people with osteoarthritis (OA) in their knees can still reap the benefits of exercising on a treadmill by taking some precautions.
Repetitive Pitching Decreases the Elbow Valgus Stability Provided by the Flexor-Pronator Mass: The Effects of Repetitive Pitching on Elbow Valgus Stability
Baseball pitching induces a large elbow valgus load, stressing the ulnar collateral ligament. Flexor-pronator mass contraction contributes to valgus stability; however, repetitive baseball pitching may weaken the flexor-pronator mass contractile function. The present study investigated the effects of repetitive baseball pitching on the medial valgus stability measured using ultrasonography.
