Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune condition, meaning the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissues. RA in the knees may severely affect a person’s mobility.
If you have pain in your hip or hips, you may be suffering from a condition called hip bursitis. Hip bursitis occurs when the small fluid-filled sac, called a bursa, becomes inflamed and irritated on the outside or inner part of your hip. Hip bursitis causes pain, decreased strength, and difficulty with movements like walking or running.
How you fuel and refuel before and after exercise helps determine the actual fitness-building benefit of the session. That’s true whether you’re lifting weights, running miles or swimming laps, too.
Use of a larger surface area tip on bipolar radiofrequency wands in hip arthroscopy is associated with significantly lower traction and total surgery times
Clinical outcomes in arthroscopic hip preservation surgery have improved over the past two decades due to many factors, including advancements in technique and instrumentation. Complications following hip arthroscopy are associated with increased traction and overall surgical times. The purpose of this study was to compare traction and surgical times during hip arthroscopy using two different radiofrequency ablation wands produced by the same manufacturer.
Although corticosteroid injections are commonly used to manage pain and inflammation in patients with osteoarthritis of the hip, a new study adds to concerns about the potential harmful effects of these injections.
