A gamekeeper's thumb, also called a skier's thumb, is an injury to one of the important ligaments at the base of the thumb joint. The injury involves the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL), a band of tough, fibrous tissue that connects the bones at the base of the thumb. This ligament prevents the thumb from pointing too far away from the hand.
Internal impingement is a specific type of shoulder injury that is seen primarily in throwing athletes.
People may notice elbow bursitis as a squishy lump on the back of their elbow. Often this seemingly appears out of nowhere, or they may remember something that led to the onset of their symptoms.
Hearing a cracking or popping in the shoulder can be unsettling. However, unless it accompanies pain, swelling, or other symptoms, joint cracking and popping are generally harmless.
Subchondral insufficiency fractures of the femoral head: systematic review of diagnosis, treatment and outcomes
Subchondral insufficiency fractures of the femoral head (SIFFH) are a cause of femoral head collapse leading to degenerative hip disease. SIFFH is often mistaken for osteonecrosis given similar clinical and radiographic features. These similarities often lead to missed or delayed diagnosis which can often delay or change management. The purpose of this article is to systematically review the spectrum of demographics, diagnostic and treatment options, including hip preservation in young patient populations.
The aim of this clinical laboratory study was to compare scapular and rotator cuff muscle activation between standard and modified exercises.
Tendonitis and tendinopathy are not the same things. Knowing the differences will determine your treatment.
Shoulder impingement, which people sometimes call swimmer's shoulder, is a condition that causes pain in the shoulder due to a tendon or bursa rubbing against the shoulder blade.
People who engage in high-intensity interval training are at greater risk for injury, especially in the knees and shoulders, a Rutgers study found.
Stress on this joint can affect the surrounding ligaments and muscles and cause tissue damage. Learn more about elbow anatomy, injuries, and rehabilitation.
