A study by Henry Ford Health System published in the October issue of The American Journal of Sports Medicine provides a promising answer to the question “Can patients effectively manage their pain after ACL knee reconstruction surgery without opioids?”
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.
