The handheld market for ultrasound continues to grow as more physicians discover the field known as POCUS (point of care ultrasound). One device on the market is the Butterfly iQ.Read More
The field of Orthopaedics has been a historically male dominated specialty. Amongst all surgical specialties, Orthopaedic surgery ranks at the bottom of the list when looking at the percentage of female residents in a given specialty. There are multiple theories as to why females do not end up in Orthopaedics. These range from lack of exposure to the field early in training and a lack of female mentors.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.
The stages of throwing in an overhead athlete are well known and have been studied exhaustively. Despite all of the studies on throwing motion, up to 30% of youth baseball players have shoulder or elbow injuries and 73-79% of these injuries are due to pitching.Read More
We will cover randomized controlled trials and systematic reviews on corticosteroid injections for issues common to orthopedics such as ankle osteoarthritis, plantar fasciitis and Morton’s neuroma.Read More
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
Physical activity, weight training, and sports are associated with a wide variety of post-exercise sequelae including muscle fatigue, delayed onset muscle soreness, discomfort, pain, and soreness. In part 1 of this series, we’ll review the current evidence for massage therapy, foam rolling and stretching, and to see which, if any, have beneficial effects on recovery for the athlete.Read More
