Learn the pre-surgery tips that can help improve your recovery, including how to prepare for surgery, what to expect during recovery and how to minimize complications.
Hamstring rehabilitation exercises can aid recovery and help prevent future injuries. Rehabilitation protocols typically call for a combination of stretching and strengthening movements.
Among patients with labral tears, hip arthroscopy with primary labral repair is the gold standard treatment, which published literature has shown to have high success rates.
Arthroscopic knee surgery is used to treat knee conditions, including cartilage injuries, meniscus tears, and ligament problems. Because it uses several small incisions rather than a large one, people tend to return to their activities more quickly and with less pain. But that's not true for everyone.
Treatment of co-afflicted athletes with femoroacetabular impingement and osteitis pubis or core muscle injury has been a challenging dilemma. Recent developments in peripubic endoscopic surgery may provide a long-awaited solution.
Isometric exercise is a type of exercise in which you contract certain muscles without any other movement. A physical therapist may prescribe isometric shoulder exercises if you have pain or need to regain normal shoulder range of motion, strength, and/or mobility.
Hip dysplasia is a condition that occurs when the hip socket (acetabulum) is too shallow to fully support the ball of the hip joint, called the femoral head. This typically affects a developing fetus, a condition called congenital hip dysplasia or developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH). However, symptoms can appear during adolescence or even in adulthood.
Regular exercise is part of a healthy lifestyle. But you might be wondering how much you should work out in a given week to get the most benefits.
The approach to establishing adequate sites for portal placement is dependent upon recognizing the pertinent anatomy of the surgical site. At the same time, the operator must be mindful of the desired views once access to the joint space has been obtained. Proper visualization of the desired joint region is critical to reducing the conversion into inherently riskier total hip arthroplasties (THAs).
Damage to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a common yet severe knee injury. Most people who experience a torn ACL recover in 3–12 months, depending on injury severity and goals for rehabilitation.
