A bunion is a deformity of the big toe. People with a bunion have a toe that points outward, as well as a bump on the inner side of the foot. As the bunion becomes more prominent, pain can develop. Learn what causes bunions and what can be done if you have a bunion.
It is common to feel burning legs during exercise, or because of sunburn. Other medical conditions can cause nerve damage, which may lead to a burning sensation.
Arthroscopic microfracture is considered the primary treatment strategy for osteochondral lesions of the talus and has been shown to provide successful outcomes. However, deterioration of clinical outcomes and fibrocartilage infill over time is now a recognized concern. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the outcomes related to cartilage repair tissue after microfracture with use of second-look arthroscopy and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and to compare these findings with functional outcomes.
Scientists are testing a heated suit which replicates some benefits of exercise without the need for physical activity.
Playing a sport has become a year-round endeavor for many youths, who feel pressure to focus exclusively on one sport in their efforts to play at the high school and collegiate levels.
The malleoli are specific parts of the tibia and fibula that form the ankle. These consist of the lateral malleolus, which is at the end of the fibula, the medial malleolus, which is on the inside of the tibia (shinbone), and the posterior malleolus, which is at the back of the tibia.
While there are preventative steps adults and children alike can take, Joseph N. Liu, MD, an orthopedic surgeon for Loma Linda University Medical Center, says it’s important to remember that there is always a risk of injury with recreational activities and that some injuries come from wear over time.
An Achilles tendon tear is a traumatic injury that causes sudden pain behind the ankle. Patients may hear a pop or a snap, and will almost always say they feel as though they have been kicked in the heel (even though no one has kicked them).
Treatment of sore muscles after exercise is focused on reducing the inflammation and allowing the sore muscle to heal properly. Some treatments recommended for muscle soreness have a scientific basis, others do not.
Vascular Compromising Effect of Drilling for Osteochondral Lesions of the Talus: A Three-Dimensional Micro Computed Tomography Study
To explore an optimal drilling depth and direction for osteochondral lesions of the talus based on a 3-dimensional vascular microarchitecture model constructed with micro–computed tomography (microCT).
