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.
Although arthroscopic surgery of the meniscus is minimally invasive, you may still experience knee pain after surgery. For some people, other problems can occur after surgery, such as arthritis, re-injury, incomplete rehabilitation, and more.
With the current trend of fitness consciousness, many people have taken up long-distance running as a part of their exercise regime. They also participate in various local, national, and global marathons. But marathon running can lead to muscular fatigue and damage in the foot muscles, which can in turn lead to chronic pain or injuries.
Hamstring rehabilitation exercises can aid recovery and help prevent future injuries. Rehabilitation protocols typically call for a combination of stretching and strengthening movements.
Suitable clothing for physical therapy depends on the person’s injury type. Loose-fitting clothes that expose the affected area are often a good option.
Patients With Knee Osteoarthritis Who Receive Platelet-Rich Plasma or Bone-Marrow Aspirate Concentrate Injections Have Better Outcomes Than Patients Who Receive Hyaluronic Acid: Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
To systematically review the literature in order to compare the efficacy and safety of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC), and hyaluronic acid (HA) injections for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis (OA).
