Your psoas muscle is one of your hip flexors that lifts your thigh. When this muscle is too tight or weak, it can result in muscle imbalances that cause pain or hinder your ability to walk. Learn more about the role of the psoas muscle and exercises to stretch and strengthen it.
According to published results, gluteal tendinopathy was commonly observed in patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty with the posterior approach and was associated with inferior patient-reported outcomes at 1 year after surgery.
Preoperative frailty predicts postoperative pain after total knee arthroplasty in older patients: a prospective observational study
Preoperative frailty in older patients is an important risk factor for both acute and chronic pain after TKA, suggesting that frailty assessment should become a necessary procedure before operation, especially in older patients.
Isolated posterior shoulder instability accounts for approximately 10% of shoulder instability cases. Patients may present after an acute trauma or with insidious onset and associated posterior shoulder pain. Knotless and all-suture anchor devices have become increasing popular and are often used in arthroscopic shoulder instability cases to avoid knot stacks and allow for the ability to re-tension the fixation. This technical note describes our technique for 2-portal posterior labral repair using knotless all-suture anchors with the patient in the lateral decubitus position.
The shoulder is a mobile and complex joint that is prone to dislocation and injury. Several types of shoulder surgery can address and correct various shoulder symptoms.
