If you have an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear and are considering surgery, you may benefit from physical therapy exercises prior to surgery. Preparing for your surgery with your physical therapist has been shown to improve overall outcomes with your knee after your ACL repair.
According to the findings of new study presented at the ACR Convergence 2020, the annual meeting of the American College of Rheumatology: Patients with knee OA who had corticosteroid injections did not show faster progression of OA or of needing TKA than patients who had hyaluronic acid injections, which have not been associated with cartilage loss.
The symptom of a knee giving out is most often due to a ligament injury. The knee is held together by ligaments, structures that connect two bones. There are four major and many secondary ones. The sensation of instability—the feeling of your knee giving out—is often due to an injury to at least one of them, which leads to the bones not being held tightly enough in position.
Using data from the Australian Orthopaedic Association National Joint Replacement Registry, researchers evaluated whether the surgical approach was associated with differences in early revision rates in primary total hip arthroplasty patients.
High intensity physical activity in early life might help maximise peak hip strength and prevent osteoporosis in later life, according to a new study.
