While it may be tempting to avoid exercise when knee pain occurs, this is not always the appropriate solution. Certain types of exercise can help alleviate existing knee pain and prevent future pain or injury by providing the knee with extra support.
Rotator Cuff Tears were Significantly More frequent in Recurrent Shoulder Instability Patients with Initial Dislocation After 40 Years than Those Before
The purpose of this study was to investigate and compare the pathologies and clinical outcomes of patients with traumatic anterior shoulder instability who underwent arthroscopic stabilization at 40 years or older between shoulders with initial dislocation before and after 40 years old.
Surgical Intervention Following a First Traumatic Anterior Shoulder Dislocation is Worthy of Consideration
Up to 60% of patients experience recurrence after a first traumatic anterior shoulder dislocation (FTASD), which is often defined as having experienced either dislocation or subluxation.
