Patients who have lateral hip pain are frequently told that they have greater trochanteric bursitis. However, correct nomenclature now refers to the condition as greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS) (Paul Barratt, 2017)Read More
The purpose of this review is to discuss the epidemiology, risk factors, diagnosis as well as management of hamstring injuries. We will also discuss the rehabilitation protocols and indication for surgical referral. These injuries are notoriously challenging and associated with significant missed playing time.
Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) has become an increasingly recognized cause of hip pain, especially in young active adults (Ganz, 2003) Accordingly, the body of knowledge surrounding the understanding and management of FAI has grown substantially (Tucker, 2015). It is imperative for sports medicine clinicians to understand current principles and best practices regarding the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of FAI.
Next in the series, we will continue to discuss the evidence related to corticosteroid injections by moving distally to the hips and knees. As with others, we will cover randomized controlled trials and systematic reviews on corticosteroid injections for issues common to orthopedics such as trochanteric bursitis, hip osteoarthritis and knee osteoarthritis.Read More
