Study Investigates Prevalence of Osteoarthritis After ACL Surgery

While osteoarthritis (OA) is often associated with aging joints, it is also associated with younger individuals who have suffered a joint injury or undergone surgery. This type of OA is commonly referred to as posttraumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA). This subtype of OA is of particular importance because it can have significantly larger costs to the health care system, because of … Continue reading Study Investigates Prevalence of Osteoarthritis After ACL Surgery

Meta-analysis of 1000+ Patients Reveals Positive Results for Use of PRP on Ligament & Tendon Injuries:

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an emerging treatment modality that utilizes a rich milleau of platelets and growth factors within a patient’s own blood to potentially promote healing of damaged tissue. In recent years, a growing volume of research, including meta-analyses (a statistical analysis that combines the results from multiple scientific studies), have been conducted … Continue reading Meta-analysis of 1000+ Patients Reveals Positive Results for Use of PRP on Ligament & Tendon Injuries:

New Research Suggests Shockwave Therapy May Provide Short-Term Benefit for Tennis Elbow

Lateral epicondylitis, more commonly known as tennis elbow, is a nagging elbow injury characterized by inflammation and degeneration of the tendon on the outer part of the elbow. It is caused by overuse and as the name implies, playing tennis can be a culprit in this disorder. However, any activity involving repetitive wrist and elbow movements can increase one’s risk of developing lateral … Continue reading New Research Suggests Shockwave Therapy May Provide Short-Term Benefit for Tennis Elbow
