Older adults have a higher risk of delirium after hip and knee surgery if they're taking anxiety, depression or insomnia drugs, researchers say.
Published results showed a low rate of participants with symptomatic hip OA enrolled in a supervised education and exercise therapy program received a total hip replacement during the 2-year follow-up period.
Individuals who tear their ACL are less likely to return to more demanding sports or activities and more likely to develop osteoarthritis in their knee. Fortunately, recent research has shown that exercise can help to decrease your risk of sustaining this type of tear.
Patients who have acupuncture during total knee replacement surgery report less pain and need far fewer opioids to manage their discomfort, according to a study being presented at the ANESTHESIOLOGY 2021 annual meeting.
Hip dysplasia occurs when the two bones that come together in the hip joint — the pelvis and femur bones — are out of alignment. The condition can cause misalignment, movement, and flexibility issues for children and adults.
