Causes of Ankle Pain and Treatment Options
There are many potential causes of ankle pain, ranging from acute injuries such as an ankle sprain or break to chronic conditions like arthritis. These can cause different types of pain.
Simultaneous bilateral total ankle arthroplasty seen as comparable to staged procedure
Under surgeon expertise in appropriately selected patients, simultaneous bilateral total ankle arthroplasty has comparable outcomes with the staged procedure for patients with bilateral end-stage ankle osteoarthritis.
Physical Therapy for Posterior Tibial Tendonitis
Physical therapy for posterior tibial tendonitis (PTT) can help you regain normal foot and ankle range of motion (ROM), strength, and mobility. This can help eliminate your foot and ankle pain and get you back to your normal work and recreational activities.
Study finds similar outcomes for operatively vs. nonoperatively managed ankle fractures
Presented results found no differences in outcomes for patients receiving operative vs. nonoperative management of unstable medial malleolar fractures at 1 year.
Causes of Heel Pain and Treatment Options
Heel pain is a very common symptom in adults, but children and adolescents may also complain of it. There are several conditions that can cause heel pain in young people. Explore when it may be normal growing pains and when heel pain may indicate a more serious condition.
Ultrasound-guided corticosteroid injections can be safely done for tibialis tendinopathy
Results showed ultrasound-guided corticosteroid injections into the tibial tendon sheath were a safe nonoperative treatment for patients with posterior tibialis tendinopathy, with the best pain relief in obese patients.
What Is Haglund's Deformity?
Haglund's deformity is a bony bump where your Achilles tendon attaches at the back of your heel bone. Because of its prominence, the bump is subject to the effects of constant friction. This causes redness and irritation, and can cause skin thickening, pain, swelling, and increased skin lines.
A workout for cartilage implants
Whether arising from being felled on the soccer pitch or a seemingly harmless collision with a coffee table, a minor injury to the cartilage in your knee can have major consequences.
Kinematic alignment versus mechanical alignment in total knee arthroplasty: An up-to-date meta-analysis
The purpose of this meta-analysis was to compare the efficacy and imaging parameters of kinematic alignment (KA) and mechanical alignment (MA) in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and to evaluate whether patients undergoing KA-TKA benefited more than those undergoing MA-TKA.
The effect of backpack load on intersegmental motions of the foot and plantar pressure in individuals with mild flatfoot
The feet play an essential role in shock absorption, and foot posture is closely related to gait. The compensatory mechanism under heavy-load conditions in individuals with mild flatfoot is poorly understood.
