The article describes how some cases of chronic ankle pain may be due to injuries to the peroneal tendon, which are located behind the outside portion of the ankle bone.
Jymmin: How a combination of exercise and music helps us feel less pain
Pain is essential for survival. However, it could also slow rehabilitation, or could become a distinct disorder. How strongly we feel it depends on our individual pain threshold. Scientists have discovered that this threshold can be increased by a new fitness method called Jymmin.
Central sensitization inventory may be useful as treatment outcome measure for chronic spinal pain disorder
The Central Sensitization Inventory may be useful as a screen and treatment outcome measure for patients who attend an interdisciplinary function restoration program for chronic spinal pain disorder, according to a recently published study.
Total Hip Arthroplasty in Patients With Avascular Necrosis After Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation
The immunosuppressive regimens required for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation predispose recipients to complications, including avascular necrosis. Cancer-related comorbidities, immunosuppression, and poor bone quality theoretically increase the risk for perioperative medical complications, infection, and implant-related complications in total joint arthroplasty.
Optimizing range of motion may prevent a stiff knee after TKA
Knee stiffness following total knee arthroplasty is a rare complication, which is multifactorial and can be prevented with techniques that help optimize knee range of motion, according to a presenter.
Return to Work After Anatomic Total Shoulder Arthroplasty for Patients 55 Years and Younger at Average 5-Year Follow-up
As the number of anatomic total shoulder arthroplasties performed on younger patients continues to grow, return to work after surgery becomes increasingly important. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the ability of anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty to return patients 55 years or younger to work postoperatively.
Back pain is common in highly active older adults
Many well-functioning and highly active older adults experienced back pain, which was linked with poorer perceived and observed walking endurance.
Inferior midterm results seen in patients with reconstructed hindfoot fractures vs delayed amputation
Inferior outcomes were seen at 5-year follow-up for patients who had reconstructed hindfoot factures compared with patients who had a delayed amputation, according to a recently published study
Humeral Fractures Sustained During Arm Wrestling: A Retrospective Cohort Analysis and Review of the Literature
Arm wrestling places significant torque on the humeral shaft. A spiral distal humeral shaft fracture is an unusual but significant injury that can result. Of 93 patients who presented between 2009 and 2017 with closed humeral shaft fractures that were managed nonoperatively, 9 sustained the fractures while arm wrestling.
Patient-reported results, knee stability improved after all-inside double-bundle ACL reconstruction
Investigators found significant improvements from preoperative measures at 24.8-month follow-up for both mean side-to-side differences and Lysholm scores in patients who underwent double-bundle ACL reconstruction using a special drill pin guide and reamer, along with a laser-guided device to facilitate a transtibial approach.
