Young Collision Athletes have High Rate of Return to Play and Good Clinical Outcomes Following Open Latarjet Procedure
The purpose of this study was to evaluate return to play (RTP), clinical outcomes and recurrence rates in collision athletes 20 years of age and younger who underwent open Latarjet for anterior shoulder instability.
Hand pain can have many causes because the hand is made up of many different parts. The bones, ligaments, tendons, nerves, skin, and other structures that help the hands do a wide range of tasks can also be sources of pain.
New MIS techniques have recently emerged in Charcot foot reconstruction that combines percutaneous deformity correction and fusion with intramedullary beaming to restore coronal and sagittal alignment with significantly reduced soft tissue dissection.
In a world where many of us spend hours hunched over computers or craning down at our smartphones, maintaining spinal health is paramount. This October, the spotlight is on spinal wellness as we celebrate Spine Health Awareness Month.
When something compresses or pinches a nerve in the shoulder, a person may experience pain, numbness, or tingling. Pinched nerves typically heal without treatment.
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.
Hip pain at night can make it more difficult to sleep, but the effects don't stop there. Twisting and turning to find a more comfortable position to sleep in combined with lack of sleep can contribute to health and quality of life issues that you experience during the day, too.
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
Impact of Reverse Shoulder Arthroplasty Design and Patient Shoulder Size on Moment Arms and Muscle Fiber Lengths in Shoulder Abductors
Reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) increases the moment arm of the deltoid, however there is limited knowledge on the accompanying changes in muscle architecture that play a role in muscle force production. The purpose of our study is to use a geometric shoulder model to evaluate the anterior deltoid, middle deltoid, and supraspinatus regarding 1) differences in moment arms and muscle-tendon lengths in small, medium, and large native shoulders, and 2) impact of three RSA designs on moment arms, muscle fiber lengths, and force-length (F-L) curves.
Swelling, pain and stiffness in the joints are common symptoms for people with arthritis. If you have arthritis, your health care professional may recommend hand exercises to help you improve joint flexibility and range of motion.
