A study by scientists has discovered that therapeutic exercise does not harm articular cartilage of the knee in people with osteoarthritis, a leading cause of disability worldwide associated with pain, impaired mobility and quality of life. It may, in fact, benefit articular cartilage.
The lateral collateral ligament, or LCL, is one of the four major ligaments that supports the knee joint. The LCL is located on the outer side of the knee. LCL tears may occur as a result of a twisting type of injury or they may be the result of a direct blow to the inner side of the knee.
In the past, just about any hip pain symptom was attributed to a "muscle strain" type of injury. While this is a common cause of hip pain in athletes, we are learning more and more about other causes of hip pain that can sideline a player from the action.
A study from the UK indicates that the incidence of late-detected developmental dysplasia of the hip hasn’t changed in 50 years. Is it time to implement universal ultrasound in newborns to improve early detection and intervention?
Relationship Between Sports Participation After Revision Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction and 2-Year Patient-Reported Outcome Measures
Participation in either a single sport or multiple sports in the 2 years after ACL revision surgery was found to be significantly associated with higher PROMs across multiple validated self-reported assessment tools. During follow-up appointments, surgeons should continue to expect that patients who report returning to physical activity after surgery will self-report better functional outcomes, regardless of baseline activity levels.
