Awkward sleeping positions can put stress and strain on your body as you’re catching ZZZs, leading to pain when you should be rising and shining. But you can rest easier with a few modifications.
Muscle weakness caused by stroke, cerebral palsy, and other conditions (especially injuries) can lead to plantar flexion weakness.1 You can rebuild strength and range of motion over time by practicing stretches and plantar flexion exercises.
In a new study, researchers say signs from two areas of the brain linked to acute pain were activated during bouts with chronic pain. Experts say the new findings could help in the development of treatments for chronic pain.
Relationship between the morphology of osteophytes and cartilage lesions in anterior ankle impingement in athletes: a cross-sectional study
The present study aimed to describe the frequency and severity of tram-track lesions in anterior ankle impingement in athletes and to evaluate the association between osteophyte morphology and severity of tram-track lesions, the distinctive cartilage lesions associated with tibial osteophytes in anterior ankle impingement syndrome.
Plantar Heel Pain (PHP) is a common disorder with many treatment pathways and is not self-limiting, hence prognostic information concerning recovery or recalcitrance is needed to guide practice. In this systematic review, we investigate which prognostic factors are associated with favourable or unfavourable PHP outcomes.
There are many options for sciatica pain relief, including exercises, physical therapy, natural remedies, and medications.
The Achilles tendon connects the calf muscles to the heel bone, also known as the calcaneus. If the Achilles tendon ruptures, a specific test can be done — the Achilles tendon rupture test, also called the Thompson test or calf squeeze test. Since the Achilles tendon is essential for walking and running, a tear necessitates starting treatment as soon as possible.
Most OTC medications fall into one of two categories: nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and acetaminophen, and there are different subtypes and brands (and generic options) within each of these categories.
Study investigates the source of back and joint pain with the goal of reverse engineering treatments
Our goal is to understand the degeneration process of musculoskeletal tissues, including cartilage, ligaments, and intervertebral discs, using advanced mechanics techniques
A pain patch is a transdermal medication used to manage acute (short-term) and chronic (long-term) pain. The patch has an adhesive back that sticks to the skin. It slowly releases the medication into the bloodstream.
